2021 October Wrap Up – Tops & Bottoms

Welcome to October’s Tops & Bottoms. This came about after realizing that I was getting overwhelmed with the number of books I was reading in a month, but still wanted to do some type of wrap up. I then decided to follow in Lianne (Literary Diversions) footsteps and talk about my two top and two bottom books of the month. This way I can talk about books that I really want to focus on and spread the word about. Every now and then I might put in an honourable mention, but other than that a lot more manageable!

October was an interesting month – apparently I decided to forego entering my books into my tracker – only Goodreads – so half my stats are non-existent – hence the barebones of it all. But I didn’t want to skip another month. I have some great books I want to talk about.

2021 October TBR

So September didn’t go exactly as planned (watch out for my Tops & Bottoms Wrap up). But that is behind us now! Time for October’s TBR and you know what that means – ALL THE SPOOKY BOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m in such a mood for all the spooky books (horrors, thrillers, mysteries) which you’ll be able to tell quickly when you see my TBR. Well, I’m sure that’s enough rambling for now – let’s look at the books on my TBR for October.

2021 August Wrap Up – Tops & Bottoms

I’ve missed a few of these, even before my hiatus. I think it was becoming too much to review every single book – especially since I’ve been reading between 17 and 26 books a month since February.

We’ll start out with the stats (❀️) then I’ll explain what I’ve planned for the rest of my Wrap ups going forward.

2021 July Mid-Month Wrap Up

Can someone slow summer down please! I would like to continue my semi-holidays for much much longer lol.

In this mid-month wrap up, you’ll see all the books I’ve read before it’s posted and a link to the review post or I’ll give a quick (couple sentences) review along with a star rating. If you want a full month’s wrap up with stars and everything, keep an eye out for my fully Month Wrap Up at the beginning of August.

So with all that out of the way, let’s take a look at what I read for the first half of July.

Odds & Ends: 2021 Most Anticipated Books| Mid-Year Check in

The Mid-year check ins continue!

I noticed that I haven’t kept up with my Most Anticipated Books for the last few years (2019, 2020, & 2021), so I wanted to track these going forward. Here you’ll see the books I listed for my most anticipated in 2019, 2020, and 2021. I will say whether or not I’ve read it and what I rated it. Any unread title will be bolded. The goal is to catch up on these books and at some point only have to look at the current year.

I wanted to note that all these graphics were created for the TBR and Beyond group and will have our logo on it. So let’s take a look.

2021 June TBR

Half way through the year already! and I think I’ve done one of these a month! Like always, I’ll share a few that I have to read, some that ARCs I want to read, and just some others to throw in the mix. I’m still unsure if I want to participate in any readathons – if any I was thinking the #Whateverathon hosted by Maddie (
@bookbrowsing). That all being said, let’s take a look.
