November Reading Plans – A Short October TBR Wrap Up + An Extensive, Weird November TBR ft. lots of self-deprecating humor (But Hey, What’s New)

I am back (albeit very late) with all my November reading plans, and it is VERY weird.

Even for me.

Which is saying a lot.

I don’t want to say too much and will shut up now because this post is already 2.2k+ words long and I just need to stop talking, okay.

October Reading Plans – My Birthday Month (!!!) My, Mixed September TBR Wrap Up + My Laid Back October TBR

Hey there, demons. It’s me, ya boi ya girl, back with wrapping up her September TBR and sharing her October reading plans.

This is not Buzzfeed Unsolved, Taasia.

But it kind of fits because it’s the ~ spooky season ~??

It’s going to be a fun month because October is ya girl’s birthday! (I’m typing this the day before my birthday) and I’m just hoping it’s going to be a great day, okay.

I don’t know. I’m actually a mess.

Anyways, back to business and what you actually came here for.

September Reading Plans – Wrapping Up my August TBR (Welp) + My (Pretty Much) Unrealistic September TBR

September is here, and I am back with an unrealistic TBR that I will probably not complete!

But hopefully, that will not be the case.

I’m sectioning off my September TBR into different parts, and I’m going back to my flexible TBR system – having a wide range of books & mood reading from that, though I’ll mostly just be reading from one section!

I’m going to try & read at least 12 books (so I can try & get to 150 books this year) BUT I’m not sure whether that’s feasible? I don’t know, because as the month goes on, the workload will definitely get worse, and I don’t know how to cope with that. (Spoiler: it’ll probably be audiobooks).

August Reading Plans: Ft. A Traditional TBR (Who Am I?) & Me Failing My July TBR (but honestly, what’s new?)

So yes, TBRs (and exposing my inability are still a thing here.

I don’t know how well I’m going to do on my August TBR, considering the busyness of August. I’m following a traditional (ish?) TBR, which is going to be … interesting.

I’m going to make my emoji key (for my August TBR) a bit more intricate! I’m separating my TBR into priority and other titles. As for monthly TBR challenges, I’m going to be participating in Avid August, hosted by the Devour Your TBR Group on Goodreads, where you focus on reading books that you didn’t get around to on your previous TBRs!

Also, I forgot to mention this on my wrap up, but I’m going overseas from the 2nd of August (today!) to the 12th of August ish? I’m doing my best to have posts scheduled, but I’m going to be even worse at interacting and returning comments!

And yes, I failed my July TBR. Truly, is anyone surprised?

Rapid July Reading Plans ft. An Interesting June TBR Wrap Up + An Excitingly Lax July TBR!

Ya girl is back with wrapping up her June TBR and showing off her TBR for July!

If you saw my June wrap-up, you know that June was my best reading month of all time (in terms of quantity), but it was not my best month in terms of me actually reading from my TBR. (yikes).

And I’m not that mad about it? Because I read some pretty hefty books, and while I wish I read more queer books, I think I read a pretty solid amount!

So after all that chaos, July is gonna be a pretty chill reading month, and I’m honestly so excited about it. I don’t think I’m going to read that much especially in the second half of the month, because I just found out that I am going to be doing a whole lot of travelling this month (to Hong Kong, Malaysia, and China!) and next month too.

I also feel tired (and feeling a bit of reading burnout), and want to slow down my reading a little and to allow for some mood reading.

Thus in July, I am going to list a few books that I want to read but allowing myself to mood read to my heart’s content (with me mainly trying to catch up or to surpass some of my reading challenges, especially Year of the Asian, as well as catch up on all my anticipated releases).

I will be reading at my own pace, and honestly? That sounds ideal. I took 4 days to finish a book (rather than my usual 2-3) and I feel fantastic about it.

And I’ve already read/currently reading/about to pick up a few of these, and I’ll note where that is the case as well as jot down a few of my thoughts.

Also! If anyone wants to buddy read any of these books (or honestly, anything), please let me know, because I’d love to do a few this month!

A Chill May TBR Wrap Up + June TBR (ft. all the queer and summery books!)

Happy June + Happy Pride to everyone this month!!

Oh my god did I just say Happy June …. how are we close to half of the year gone?

June is going to be such an exciting month (no more school!!) and I’m so excited to get all the reading time, because I am exhausted and am in such a summer mood™️.

I didn’t do super well on my TBR but I’m not mad about it because I was suffering from exams and had intended on mood reading the whole month.

I’m genuinely so excited about all the books on my June TBR! Let me know if you want to buddy read any of these, and we can message on Twitter (because I love buddy reading omg).

Also – from now on, (for the sake of brevity), I’m only going to check in with my previous month’s reading plan posts and not write comments on any of them because it’s a lot for everybody. I plan to read many of the titles that I didn’t get around to in June or in the summer (where I’ll have a lot more time to read).

April III – The Month of Mood Reading, all the Asian Readathons and Way Too Many Lists (+ Happy Asian Pacific Heritage Month!)

Welcome back to another installment of me chatting about books that I intend to read (and will most likely fail to read) in the current month!

Well, for the most part.
