my 2021 reading goals

Reading is one of my favourite things in the world, being transported to new worlds, making new friends, and learning from people who know more than I is wonderful. I also love new years and making goals and challenges for myself. One of my favourite goals is figuring out what I am going to read…

the best books i read this month – november 2020

Another month down and if you are anything like me you are well into the Christmas Spirit already. My tree has been up for weeks, the lights have gone up on the house, and I am so happy there is still over a month of Christmas Spirit to go. Dark mornings and evenings are always…

what to use instead of goodreads

I have been using Goodreads for years. Back when I first got into book tracking in 2011 I found Goodreads and immediately started adding all the books I had read and still continue to do so. I generally really do enjoy Goodreads. I love all the people that I am able to follow and get…

the best books i read this month – october 2020

The end of the month always seems to sneak up on me until I realize it is time for another book blogpost! I always enjoy looking back on my goodreads list of what I have read this month and picking out some of my favourites (and remembering some that I didn’t enjoy as much). This…

the best books i read this month – september 2020

Fall is here y’all and I am stoked. I have started turning my fireplace on and cuddling up with a blanket and hot cup of tea while I get drawn into a new book has been a real highlight of the last month. There has been a lot of 5 star read this month and…

Summer has arrived! It is so nice to actually start wearing the shorts that are in my closet and also to discover that my home stays pretty cool, even on the days that go over 30 degrees. I always love starting to write these blog posts because it means I get to take a look…

the best books i read this month – may 2020

And just like that another month at home has passed. Not much has changed in my household, we are both still not working, my garden and plants are helping to keep me mentally sane, and I am still reading a lot. We have been able to start seeing some of our friends in a socially…

the best books i read this month – april 2020

Well what a month this has been. Everyone has had different experiences with reading at this time. There are people that are usually big readers that can’t seem to pick up a book, and others that are reading more than ever. Neither of these are wrong. If you are reading lots right now here are…

the best books i read this month – march 2020

Well this was a month. Like much of the world the past two weeks have been spent mostly at home and I am not sure whether or not my reading has improved with it. On one hand I am surrounded by all the books I picked up before the libraries closed all day and have…
