2021 February Mid-Month Wrap Up

Round 2 of my mid-month wrap up!

During the 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. During the month wrap up, I’ll give stats and show off what I read after the mid-month wrap up.

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

January 2021 Mid-Month Wrap Up

I’ve decided to do wrap ups twice a month. Why, you ask? Well because I’ve always wanted to do monthly wrap ups, but every time I went to do them last year I read so many books that it became daunting. So to solve that problem – or at least an attempt to – I decided to do mid-monthly and monthly wrap ups. These may change depending on how well this works, but I’m really hoping this will be something I decide to stick with.

During the mid-month wrap up you’ll see all the books I’ve read before it’s posted (as close to the 15th as I can get it) and a link to the review post or I’ll give a quick (couple sentences) review along with a star rating. During the month wrap up, I’ll give stats and show off what I read after the mid-month wrap up.

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

Summary of 2020

Normally, I would have included a bunch of stats in a post like this, but for some reason my spreadsheet that tracks all of this has managed to go a bit wonky (probably because I kept adding different things throughout the year and maybe didn’t adjust it). So to not have this posted months after the fact, I decided to do more of a “Year in Books” with some other bits and bobs kind of post.

Character

Name: YoungatHeartReader
Fatal Flaw: Reads a new book before reading any of the books already owned
Top Strength: Audiobook Hero, Master of Headphones
Weapon of Choice: a book, which may be magical, or just glittery (see fun and cute) – how could I not pick a book that sparkles?!?!?!

Quest Log

Wrap Up

So this week I didn’t complete as many as last week.

Intimidating Book: European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman

Free Choice: The Night Swim

I didn’t get to as many as I would have liked this week, but European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman was a huge book that intimidated me a lot (for size alone) and I’m so glad I read it! I instantly bought book 3 after finishing it.

How are you doing so far? How overwhelming is your currently owned TBR? Have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments below.

Clear Your Shit: A Readathon – Week 3 Wrap Up

Ok I’m a little late at posting my wrap up for the Clear Your Shit: A Readathon.

For those who didn’t see my previous two wrap ups, Clear Your Shit is a 2 month long readathon hosted by Andee and El/Art, running from November 1 to December 27. Why? 1) it was cute and clearly designed (check out Twitter Page!!); 2) I NEED TO CLEAR OUT MY SHIT!!!

Wrap Up

Ok so what have I completed this week?

Shortest Book: Be Not Far From Here

With an Animal: The Boy, The Wolf, and the Stars

Most Expensive Book: Spoiler Alert

Mini Boss Battle: A Book Your Purchased This Year: A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire

The mini boss battle is based on your fatal flaw. Since I picked “Read a new book before books you own” my prompt was Read a book you purchased this year, preferably the oldest.

I’m happy with the amount I read last week! A lot of these books aren’t small and I’m working on a rather large one for this week. I’ve managed to clear 10 spaces and only have 14 left. I wish I had read more from my TBR instead of picking up more and more from the library. I think my goal for the rest of readathon is to pick solely from my own books (except for some buddy reads, which I will have to grab from the library).

How are you doing so far? How overwhelming is your currently owned TBR? Have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments below.
