    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the November 2021 book haul!! A monthly post where I usually shame myself for never achieving my goal of buying less than I read, or sticking to my buying goal.

    December 2021 TBR

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the December 2021 TBR post. I know what you’re thinking (maybe). Why even bother to write a TBR if I never stick to it?? I used to ask myself this ALL the time.

    Top 5 books I haven’t read yet in 2021

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to Top 5 Tuesday!! This week’s topic is top 5 books I haven’t read yet in 2021. I don’t know how I feel about the whole “end of 2021” fast approaching thing. Because, to me, 2021 has felt like it’s taken 16 years, but simultaneously 31 seconds. I’m still writing “2020” as the year on forms, and…
