My “Want-to-Read” Checklist | Book Discussion

What determines whether or not you read a book?

Or rather, want to read a book? For me, and for most people, I’d wager, it’s a combination of a lot of different things. Factors that decide whether you’ll pick up a story, or leave it on the shelf.

Today, I want to discuss some of the conventional things that determine whether or not one adds a book to their TBR, and how important each of those things are to me.

3 Underhyped Sci-Fi’s You Need in Your Life

Long time, no see, bibliophiles! How goes it?

Today, I’m here to deliver to you, some YA sci-fi’s I love that I haven’t seen a whole lot of people reading or talking about. I haven’t screamed about any underrated faves in a while, so I figured this post was long overdue.

Where Have I Been? (And What Have I Been Reading?)

These are both fair questions.

So, I’ve been on a sort of unofficial hiatus for the past few weeks and my only excuse is that my life got extremely busy when school started in August. And by the time October rolled around I was lost in schoolwork, music practice, and (trying) to read.

Which brings us to: What have I been reading?

Booktubeathon 2017 TBR

So I could use a readathon right now.

I’m 8 books behind on my reading challenge as of late, which is only slightly pitiful, especially since I can feel the calendar pushing towards August and the start of my sophomore year. I’m going to be pulled into homework, AP classes, and extracurriculars.

Therefore, I feel like this is my chance to catch up. It’s now or never and I really  want to achieve my goal this year.

One Year Blogiversary Q&A | LET’S CELEBRATE AND GET SENTIMENTAL

I know you can’t see me, as is the nature of a blog, but I am throwing confetti at you.

Well, in my mind at least because, hey, IT’S MY ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY BABY!

It’s really difficult for me to believe that it’s been a whole year. This time last year, I was freaking out and reading re-reading my first blog post before it went live. I was so nervous that no one would ever read it. That no one would ever read anything I ever wrote.

I don’t even have the words to thank everyone that has ever read one of my posts. Even if you didn’t get past the first sentence, you clicked on it, for some reason, and I am grateful.

5 Books I Didn’t Expect to Love | Spoiler Alert: I Did!

Deciding what to read next is hard.

As bookworms, we know this. As bloggers, we especially know this. Who has time to read a book that they’re just not interested in? As such, I generally don’t bother picking up books that I’m not at least 70% sure I’ll enjoy. I mean, my TBR is begging for mercy as it is, and it just cannot afford the extra weight.

Blogger Things I Don’t Do

I’m slowly approaching my eight-month blogiversary! YAY!!

celebration

“Jordyn. Eight months? That’s kind of a random number!” Yes it is! But you’ll only be able to find out why eight months is so symbolic in the actual blogiversary post! Get psyched for that. I know it’ll keep you up at night.

13 Diverse Books I’m Afraid I’ll Have to Read This Year

Haha, afraid. Because, you know… Happy Friday the 13th!

Friday the 13th has always seemed like a mini-Halloween to me. I mean, sure, you don’t dress up and go trick-or-treating, but it does have that spooky aspect to it.

In honor of today, I’m talking about 13 diverse books that I totally need to get my hands on this year. And, despite the title that was created to celebrate this “holiday”, I’m not afraid of any of these. On the contrary, I’m freaking pumped to read them. Some have already been released, some have yet to be published, but either way, I’ve got to read these books before the year is up.
