Friday Reads: December 2019 Wrap-Up

So, there are still a handful of days left in December, but I'm doing my wrap-up post now anyway. Any books that I read between now and the 31st can get included in my 2019 Reading Wrap-Up.

Today is the Yule Ball! So that means it's time to catch up on my progress for the Triwizard Tournament Readathon.

First Line Friday 56 – SquirrelTerror

This is the last of the First Line Friday 56 posts that I am going to be doing. I will still be posting quotes from page 56 and the first line, but it will no longer be officially part of either meme. Instead, as I mentioned last week, they will be more like regular reviews that… Continue reading First Line Friday 56 – SquirrelTerror

Friday Reads ~ the update edition

For a while now I've been blogging rather randomly. I have a very general theme, but it also means that some posts I want to do get forgotten about. For example, I (years ago) used to post more blog reviews on this site, often cross-posting them with my Book-Wyrm-Reads sister site. But then I got… Continue reading Friday Reads ~ the update edition

Friday Reads: November 2019 Wrap-Up

I ended up reading more books in November than I'd really been counting on, since this month was also NaNo. It does help that a lot of these books are shorter ones, though. The Forward Collection, for example, are more short story length (or novellas at best) and so they bump up the book count… Continue reading Friday Reads: November 2019 Wrap-Up

First Line Friday 56 – Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds

This is a fun book! I didn't know when I initially decided to read it that it was a collection of three novellas about the same main character. But I'm really glad I picked it up. It's a much more enjoyable Sanderson book for me than the first one of his I read. (Steelheart. You… Continue reading First Line Friday 56 – Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds

Five 5-Star Books with Under 500 Goodreads Ratings

Louise @ Foxes & Fairy tales has been doing a series of 5-star reads with low numbers of Goodreads ratings, and I thought it was a good time for me to revisit my own 5-star reads with minimal love on GR. I have done a few posts on this subject now: 5-star books with under… Continue reading Five 5-Star Books with Under 500 Goodreads Ratings

Series I’m Reading (late 2019 review)

I haven't really made much progress with finishing book series. I've gotten caught up on a few, but they're not finished series, so they have to stay on the "pending" list. I've started more series than I've gotten caught up on, though! Oh well, at least I'm still enjoying them all. If you want to… Continue reading Series I’m Reading (late 2019 review)
