The Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag | 2022

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve done a book tag. And I mean a LONG time. But I recently remembered that it’s halfway through 2022 already– as if time could pass any faster– and I decided I might as well keep the tradition going and do the Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag again.

I reached 800 blog (including email) followers a few days ago, so I asked on Twitter and Instagram for some questions for an “AMA” post to commemorate the milestone. Thank you so much to everyone who supports this blog!

The Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag | 2021

When will everyone realize that the middle of the year falls at the very end of June/the very beginning of July, and not the middle of June? I don’t know, but it won’t stop me from posting all my mid-year reading stuff whenever in the summer I feel like it.

My Midyear Reading Progress Check | How I Track My Reading

How do you keep track of your reading progress?
I’ve always used Goodreads, but this year I also decided to track my reading via a spreadsheet, like the nerd that I am. I tracked four different metrics: book genre, book “age group”, and format I read it in.

Anyway, what better way to spend a rainy Wednesday night than to… write a book tag post? Thank you to Reading by the Moonlight for nominating me for the Meet the Book Blogger tag!

Discussion: Writer’s Block and Blogging Burnout

How could I let this happen? It’s twenty minutes before the time my weekly blog post is supposed to go up, and I’m sitting on the couch, staring at the devastatingly empty draft post on my laptop screen. My cursor blinks pitifully against the unforgiving expanse of blank space, until I close out of the tab with a plaintive sigh.

2021 Reading Resolutions | TBR

It’s hard to believe 2020 is almost over, but I am certainly not complaining. Although it was a little lacking in other departments, 2020 was an amazing reading year for me. I started my blog in March, which reignited my almost-dormant passion for reading, and as the year went on my book addiction was completely rekindled. As of now- December 26th- I have read 125 books. That’s the highest number of books I’ve read in a year since I began keeping track on Goodreads in 2017.

It’s Fall Y’All! |Doing the Fall Book Tags I Procrastinated

Today is a special day. First because it’s Halloween (free excuse to eat as much candy as I want) and second, and more relevantly, because I’m going to do be doing a double tag post.
