It's so nice to be able to take your time and it seems like you've had a good reading year so far. Betwixt the Books Just for solidarity, according to Goodreads I am at 14 books for the year so far … which puts me at a deficit of 28 books to hit my reading goal by the end of the year. I don't think I've ever been this far behind on my reading goal, but I always read in fits and starts. There are months where I read 1 book and months where I read 17 so we shall see what happens there. I used to try and push myself to read more because booktube requires constant output of content, but honestly that led me to avoid books that I wanted to read because they were longer reads, or harder reads and I wanted to take the mantle off of me with the pressure to read more rather than read what I want and what I enjoy. seriela Thanks for some new additions to my tbr. I'll especially be on the lookout for The Good Son. Justine Cool shirt! <3 SavidgeReads I need to look up The Animators. I think the whole Shakespeare retellings project was a bit of a dud. Even Atwood’s didn’t do anything for me. I am going to have to look up Alice and see what I can find of hers from your link. I must get to Stephen Florida, even though – like you – it sounds like it is nothing like I would normally read. Washington Black is high on my TBR. Don’t sweat how much you’re reading. Just enjoy what you’re reading. 1book1review I like this tag as it always gives you a reason to reflect and look back at your reading. When I did it I noticed that despite having read 50 books already I haven't had an exciting reading year due to mainly reading sequels and trying not to buy new books all the time. Gemma Hahaj Lovely to see you back in the regular swing of video making;) My reading year so far was a bit of a slog. I haven't read much and my current commute doesn't support reading as much and it used to be my prime reading time so my reading suffered in the process. There were bright highlights, though 🙂 Laura D I found you mentioned on a Book Riot post and I am so glad I did! You recommend books I would never have discovered without your channel. Thanks for the great content. Jo Smith Funny isn’t it how reading numbers differ from year to year, mine is way up this year but I’m only working part time and I basically stopped watching TV, next year it might be different. I’ve heard so many good things about Stephen Florida as a hidden gem that I would love to get to it soon as well as The Animators which I think Michelle at Challengethyshelf recently shouted out as well. You may not have read as many books as you would like but they were good one clearly. I’m off to find out when The Tournament of Books is scheduled for next year! Pip Reads Pretty sure these questions are from Harriet Rosie. Great answers and looking forward to hearing more about the books you are reading. Judit Kovacs The Satanic Verses is a really good book, but it is not an easy, page turner, but it is much better for it. I also read 22 books, and some of those were graphic novels and plays, or short books. But I am trying to get out of the booktube race of reading an infinite amount of books all the time, it is just too much of an unnecessary stress. BB B quality over quantity, shouldn't even have to defend yourself for not reading a certain amount.
