Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag 2018!

Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag

I did this last year so I thought I would make it a little tradition here. If you want to check out how I was doing last year around this time you can do so here. I can’t believe we are already halfway through the year.  It’s fine, it’s cool, I’m not freaking out, you’re freaking out. That also means it’s time for the Mid-Year Book Freak Out and I am so ready! However I have already read more than I anticipated, which is really quite nice. Okay, lets just jump into it. 

1. Best Book You’ve read so far in 2018

This is always such a hard question! I’ve read so many books. This is a really tough choice but seeing as I there is no way I can choose just 1 book, but my favourite Standalone novel I’ve read so far would have to by Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart.

2. Best Sequel you’ve read so far in 2018

This Question was a lot harder than I thought I would be, I haven’t actually read many sequels this year, and less that I’ve actually enjoyed. So, I’m going to go with Scorpio Hates Virgo by Anyta Sunday, sequel to Leo Loves Aries. I love this series, they are really good.

3. New Release you haven’t read yet but want to

The New Release I can think of is A Thousand Perfect Notes by C. G. Drews (who is well known from her Blog Paper Fury). I’ve been anticipating this for a while now and it was published June 7th 2018. 

36389267

4. Most Anticipated Release for the Second Half of the Year

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare. I am so excited for this one, I’ve been waiting for the release of this for ages. It’s not being published until December 4th, which is still a really long time away, but I’m really excited and I can’t wait!

5. Your Biggest Disappointment

My biggest disappointment would probably have to be Liam Davis & The Raven by Anyta Sunday, I read the Sign of Love series and love them, but I didn’t really enjoy this one as much. I was a bit disappointed in this one, as I loved her other books that I read.

6. Biggest Surprise of the year

I actually have two for this one, I can’t choose between these ones. The Biggest surprises of this year so far have been Leo Loves Aries by Anyta Sunday & Fourteen Summers by Quinn Anderson. These are both New Adult LGBTQ+ Romances and I honestly did not expect to love these as much as I did. These were both eARC’s that I received from Netgalley. 

7. Favourite New-to-you or Debut Author

For this one I would have to say Anyta Sunday, I discovered her books this year and I’ve already read 4 of them. I don’t usually read so many books by an author, especially not in the same year, but I love her books and her writing style. If you haven’t read any of her books, I would really recommend it.

 

8. Your Fictional Crush

I’m cheating a little bit with this one, as I read these books last year, but I did Reread them this year; Vanitas & Noe from The Case Study of Vanitas. I can’t choose between them, I love both of these characters.  

I love this manga! Vanitas is by far the most interesting character from this series. At times comic relief, and at times a clever, charismatic enigma, he has become quite an endearing and confusing character. It had been a long time since I have read about such an eccentric character.

The Case Study of Vanitas is set in 19th Century Paris where Humans and Vampires live with one another. Vanitas is the owner of the tome Noé seeks, and Vanitas says he wants to save vampires with the tome, although he seems to have yet unknown intentions and Noé appears to have other goals, too. The two partner up on a case, and and form a weird friendship. 

9. New Favourite Characters

I don’t think I have any new Favourite Characters this year, or at least none that I remember. I’ve liked a lot of characters this year, but not any that stand out. 

10.A Book That Made You Cry

Not many books actually make me cry,  so I don’t think I have an answer for this one. 

11. A Book that made you happy

I loved reading The Key to Rondo by Emily Rodda, this is such a fun series to read and I can’t wait to continue this series hopefully soon. If you don’t know Emily Rodda is an Australian Author, who also wrote the Deltora Quest series, which was my favourite series as a kid. Reading her books always makes me happy. There so fun, and original.

13. Your Favorite Book-to-movie Adaptation That You’ve Seen This Year

I saw Love, Simon this year after reading the book, I was never actually planning to read this book ever, I wasn’t at all interested in it. But when I found out there was going to be a movie based on the book and I saw the Trailer, I decided to finally read the book. And I went to see the movie, and I really enjoyed it. Also, I haven’t seen many Book-to-movie adaptations this year. 

14. The Most Beautiful Book You’ve Bought/Received This Year

This year, I received these Folio Society Charles Dickens Classic books as a gift from a family member. And they are probably some of the best books I have on my Shelves. 

IMG_1674

These books are really plain though, so if were talking about the most beautiful design, here are few of those, there’s no way I can choose. There are so many beautiful books!  

15. What Are Some Books You Need To Read By The End Of The Year?

These a lot of book I would love to read by the end of the year, but these are a few of them; the main ones. So, it’ll be interesting to see which ones I actually read, and hopefully by the end of the year I would have finished all of these. 

Chat With Me

That seemed like a really long list, even though it was only 15 questions. What do you think of my picks? What would you choose for each prompt? Have you done this tag? If so, leave the link in the Comments, I’d love to check yours out!

Also, I tag anyone reading this that wants to do it! So, If you’re reading this, consider yourself tagged!

Do you enjoy reading Plays? Or do you just like to see them Performed?

Spring Awakening (Play) by Frank Wedekind
Spring Awakening by Steven Sater

(Tuesday, May 1st – Thursday, May 31st)

May 2018 Readathons I’m participating in (#MoodyMay, #SCReadathon, #Currentathon, #EBookathon)

October TBR

I know this is extremely late, we’re already halfway through this month, but today I’m going to be sharing my May TBR (but not really). I’ll also be posting this months Book Haul/TBR Revisit soon too and catching up with a lot of posts that I’m really behind on.

Moody May (#MoodyMay)

(Tuesday, May 1st – Thursday, May 31st)

This is a challenge hosted by Kathy @ Books and Munches. This is all month long, and is dedicated to all the mood readers out there. This is very weird for me because I’m so used to having a TBR of sorts but I’ll be trying not to do that in May, and just reading what I feel like reading at the moment! So I will not be doing a TBR, this post will just be announcing the Readathons that I’ll be participating in, no TBR.

Series Crackdown (#SCReadathon)

(Friday, May 25th – Sunday, June 3nd)

Series Crackdown is hosted by Mel at The Book Moo. The aim of Series Crackdown is simple: ten days of reading as many books as you can in the series that you’ve been putting off. Ten whole days of reading. Start a new series or finally continue the one you started all those months ago. Doesn’t matter – just read!

Current Readathon (#Currentathon)

(Sunday, May 27th – Saturday, June 2nd) 

I’ll be participating in Current-A-Thon hosted by Gina @ RandomlyBookishGina and Brittany’s Book Nook. There are challenges, which I won’t be doing. I have a lot a “Currently Reading” books, so hopefully I can get through a few of those during this readathon. You can find out more on their Twitter.

EBookathon (#EBookathon)

(Sunday, May 27th – Saturday, June 2nd) 

This is dedicated to reading the unread books we keep collecting on our kindles/e-readers. I have a lot of eARC’s that I have to read. I’m excited to finally get to those books! You can find out more on the Twitter Page. 

Chat With Me

These are the Readathons/Reading Challenges I’m Participating in this month. It’ll be interesting to see what I actually end up reading, seeing as I usually set a TBR, It feels weird to not set a TBR. But I’m excited for all these Readathons. 

What about you guys? What books are on your TBR? Do you set Monthly TBR’s? What books are you looking forward to reading this month? Are you participating in any of these readathons this month? Are you participating in any other readathons I didn’t mention in this post? Let me know in the Comments!

The Unread Shelf Project 2018

The Unread Shelf Project 2018

I’ve just found out about this, so I am taking part in The Unread Shelf Project 2018. Hosted by theunreadshelfkatereadsbooks_, and calsreads on Instagram, the Unread Shelf Project is really just group inspiration to read the books you already own. I have a lot of Unread books. I don’t need, or want, that many unread books. I’d like to have a smaller selection of unread books. Fifty seems like a good number to me. I think that will be just enough to offer a bit of variety, while still leaving room for borrowing or buying new books. So my goal is to read through my unread books.

My goal is to knock out some books that I bought, and requested arcs of and never got to. I’m usually terrible at keeping up with goals like this, because the second I feel like I “have” to do something… I no longer want to. I’ve tried to be realistic about what I will and want to read, and have definitely been better about DNFing books and getting rid of them if I’m not enjoying them. But my compulsion to spend a lot of time at the bookstore and buying books online led to a ton of unread books on my shelf.

There are occasional challenges (monthly and weekly, I believe) which, so far, seem to be designed to both help you see what’s in your unread pile and to motivate you to read those books. I probably won’t do all of the challenges, but I might use the challenges as a means of motivating me, especially when I get tempted by all the pretty new-to-me books I could be buying. 

So, I have counted all my Unread Books and discovered I have 226 unread books. I’ve decide to be quite ruthless with quitting books. I’m genuinely interested in all of the books I have left, but I don’t want to waste my time on books I’m not enjoying. So, I’m going to give each book a couple chapters or at least 50-100 pages depending on the size of the book, but if I’m not enjoying the book, I’m not going to keep reading it, regardless of how long it’s been waiting to be read.

I’ll be doing regular updates on my Instagram HERE. I haven’t used Instagram in a while, so hopefully this will get me back into it, and hopefully I’ll be able to do regular updates. So if you’re interested in that, be sure to Follow me over there. 

Chat With Me

So, there you are. These are my plans for the rest of 2018, and if you want to check out the books I own, you can check that out HERE. It’s not a full list though, I haven’t added any of my Recently bought books! I try to get around to that soon. What are your 2018 reading goals? Do you also find large piles of unread books very stressful? Or, are you one of those magical people who can own 1000 unread books without batting an eye?

January 2018 TBR (#JanJamJar, #Winterbibib, #24in48)

October TBR (7)

January Jam Jar (#JanJamJar)

(Monday, January 1st – Wednesday, January 31)

I’ll be participating in January Jam Jar, hosted by Kathy @ Book & Munches! I’m really looking forward to doing this. This is right up my alley. I have a TBR Jar, but I rarely use it, as I’m more of a mood reader, so It will be a great opportunity to use it more! TBR jars are great! They’re quite easy to obtain and don’t cost a lot of money and you can even make them yourself! And above all, they save you from the trouble of deciding what to read next.

You just write the books on your TBR down, put them in the jar, choose one at random and voila! You have your next read. Obviously I didn’t get to read all the books I had planned to in 2017, as I have all my TBR books in my Jar, I’m going to choose out 8 TBR books I own & 8 ARC’S/Review Books, and put them in Separate Jar. There are a lot of books that I was so eager for and did not end up reading. It’s a bit of a challenge because I am a mood reader and rarely like reading randomly, so let’s see!

MY PHYSICAL TBR

MY ARC’S

Biannual Bibliothon (#Winterbibib)

(Saturday, January 20th – Friday, January 26th)

The Biannual Bibliothon is a week long readathon hosted by a group of YA booktubers. Throughout the week there are reading challenges, blog challenges, video challenges, and Instagram challenges you can participate in.

Like most readathons, the Biannual Bibliothon has reading challenges you can participate in throughout the week. Since the readathon is seven days long, there are seven reading challenges you can participate in, but of course you don’t have to if you don’t want to. For this readathon you’re allowed to double up on challenges, but no more than two challenges per book.

The reading challenges are:

  1. Read the group book: Otherworld by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller
  2. Read a sequel – The Last Place by Michael Adams
  3. Read a book you’ve never heard of before – The Silent Corner by Dean Koontz
  4. Read a book about mental illness – 10 Things I can see from here by Carrie Mac
  5. Read a book that was mentioned in another book/movie/tv show – Death Note Volume 2
  6. Read a book under 200 pages – A Modern Detective by Edgar Allan Poe
  7. Read a backlist title

24in48 (#24in48)

(Saturday, January 27th – Sunday, January 28th)

The 24 in 48 readathon is happening again. I have participated in this readathon once before and really enjoyed setting out time for reading. This time I am going to attempt to complete an Audiobook as well as having Manga, physical and e-books.

Basically, the 24in48 Readathon is really simple – all participants have to do is read 24 hours in a 48 hour time period. There are no challenges and no other requirements! This is basically just focusing on you setting aside some time from 12:01am on Saturday morning until 11:59pm on Sunday night to read. You can read for a full 24 straight hours, perhaps 12 hours each day, or any which way you want. If you’d like to learn more and sign up, just go HERE. You can also follow along on Twitter @24in48readathon.

TBR:

That’s it for now! If I find any other read-a-thons/Reading Challenges for January, I’ll add them here. You can also check out my Manga Madness Read-a-thon TBR.

2018 Reading & Blogging Goals

young,.png

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I hope you had tons of fun last night celebrating the new year. Now, Onto the actual post. I love lists. Like I really love lists. Making them, crossing things off, all of it. Seeing what I’ve accomplished is just so satisfying and truly a great motivator. And it’s that time of the year again to start thinking about a list of goals for myself as a reader and Blogger!

I don’t always write all my goals down, some just float around my head throughout the year. Most change, sometimes I add more, sometimes I take a few off. That’s the beauty of goals. I don’t HAVE to reach them and they’re as flexible as I’m willing to be because I’m not setting them for anyone but myself.

1. Read 250 Books. in 2017, I read 180 Books, which was the most I’ve ever read in a year. This might be a bit of a stretch, but this year, I’d like to try for 250 books. Just a classic Goodreads Reading Challenge!

2. Finish 10 Series I’ve started. Like last year, I also aim to finish at least 10 series that I have started. The series must be started before 2018. I have quite a few series that I’ve started but left unfinished which I keep swearing I’ll finish and it keeps… not happening.

3. Read 12 Classics. Last Year, I read 11 Classics, I was only one of from this goal. I think I could do better with this one this year. I think I can do better in 2018!

4. Read 100 books from the books I own. The books must have been bought before 2018.

5. Stop Buying Books and not reading them. In 2018 I’m going to be trying something a bit different. Any books that I get, I will be trying to read them within 3 months of buying/receiving them. As well as reading books from my TBR that I’ve had for longer than 1 year.

6. Read More Adult Books. I tend to read mostly YA than adult books but in 2018 I’d like to read more adult books than in 2017.

7. Read more #OwnVoices & Diverse Books. I actually I already read pretty diversely, and I did really well with this one in 2017, but I’ll try to do even better.

8. Read more books set in Australia or by Australian Authors. As an Australian I do not read enough book by Australian Authors, or Set in Australia. Last year, I read about 7 books by Australian Authors. I feel like I made more of an effort  with this one last year,but I do think I could improve the number I read next year.

9. Read more ARC’s/Review Copies. The Review Copies have suffered this past year, but I found that I was less stressed when I was more focused on reading what I felt like reading at the time then deadlines. But I think 2018 will be my year for Review Copies, and to get those numbers down. I have an ARC addiction. No, really. I have a spreadsheet dedicated to my ARCs, and if you saw the number of ARCs I have that I haven’t reviewed yet, it’s genuinely shameful. I want to work towards reading and reviewing a lot of them, catching up on the backlogged ones I have, and building myself up with publicists so I stand a better chance of approval when I request the ones I really want.

10. Read more Poetry. I used to read poetry all the time, but it’s been a while and I miss it. I stopped reading Poetry because I ran out of ones to read, after I read all the poetry by my favourite Poets – Edgar Allan Poe, Arthur Rimbaud, and Oscar Wilde – I lost interest in reading it. I will be starting the new year with reading Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. If you have any poetry Recommendations, Let me know in the Comments!

11. Reduce my Review turnaround time to two Months or under.

12. Get an Auto Approval on NetGalley. For those of you who are not familiar with NetGalley, it’s a site that brings together reviewers and publishers. The reviewers request books and the publishers can either approve or deny the request.  If they approve then the reviewer can read the book and provide feedback. When a publisher Auto Approves a reviewer that means they can download any book that publisher has on the site without waiting for approval. It’s a big deal in the NetGalley world if you get Auto Approved.

13. Read one New Release each Month. Consequently, the pile is growing and growing. Still, I want to stay in touch with new releases even when there are so many older books that I really want to read. So, I’ll try to buy and read one new book release each month.

14. Review more books. When I first started blogging, I posted so many reviews. And whilst I still always have multiple books on the go, I’m definitely a slow reader and don’t have as many reviews up as I would like. Next year, I want to try and rectify that by regularly having a book review scheduled for perhaps once a week.

15. Increase my Netgalley Ratio to 80%. I made some progress in getting my NetGalley feedback ratio from up by the end of 2017 but I do still have a lot of books sitting on my shelf. My aim is therefore to maintain an 80%+ ratio but also to reduce the number of books on my shelf. I would instigate a request ban but I’m a realist so instead I’m committing to request no more than I read and review in a month.

16. Hit 500 Followers. I’ve almost hit 300 Followers. So assuming I continue working hard and producing content,I would like to think this is a doable goal. Seriously thank you so much for joining me and Following my Blog! It honestly means the world to me that you like to read what I write. I never believed people would actually enjoy my drivel and I’m still a bit in awe if I’m honest. This year, I would love to hit 500 Followers, if you could follow my Blog, Share my Posts around, and help me get to 500 Followers, it would honestly mean so much to me.

17. Host a Successful Read-a-thon. In 2018 I’ll be hosting my very first Read-a-thon, Manga Madness Read-a-thon (#MangaMadnessReadathon). If you’re interested reading Manga for a week, join me in this read-a-thon. Help me complete this Goal and make this a Successful read-a-thon, you can follow the official Twitter page, @MMReadathon.

Chat With Me

So these are my reading/Blogging plans for 2018! I’m looking forward to the new year! Thanks for reading, and thanks for joining me in 2017! Here’s to an even better 2018!

Do you set goals for your reading/blogging? What are your Reading & blogging goals for 2018? What are you planning on reading in the new year? Any new projects you are excited to begin? Let me know in the Comments.

Looking Back on my 2017 Reading & Blogging Goals!

d

At the beginning of the year I set a some reading & Blogging goals for myself, and I thought it might be fun to look back at them and see how I did:

1. Request fewer books from Netgalley. I’ve been overdoing it for a couple of months now, and it has to stop, or at least slow down, because my To Read for Review pile is huge.

Yeah, this one is a MASSIVE FAIL. I don’t even want to count the number of books I requested this year. I don’t want to talk about it. ❌

2. Read more books from my shelf. I’d like to get through some books that I already own.

I think it’s fair to say I accomplished this. I’m too lazy to get the exact stats, but I feel like I made more of an effort to read the Books I already own this year. I’m pretty happy with how I did, but I do think I could improve the number next year.

3. Do more discussion posts. I only done two so far and I really liked it, and I want to keep doing them, maybe create one a month. I love discussions.

I’m also going to count this one as a Success. I did do a few discussion posts this year, or at least more than I did the Previous Year.

4. Read more diversely. I actually think I already read pretty diversely, but I’ll try to do even better.

I think it’s fair to say this one was a Success. I’m not going to get the exact stats, but I feel like I made more of an effort to read diverse books this year, and it showed. I’m pretty happy with how I did, but I do think I could improve the number of diverse books I read next year.

5. Read more Classics. I’d like to read twelve Classics, one a month. I’ve started collecting the Vintage Classics versions and want to actually read them and not just stare at the beautiful books.

I read 11 Classics, I was only one of from this goal. I think I could do better with this one next year. So I’ll count this as a fail. ❌

6. Read 150 books. in 2016, I read 104 Books. I’d like to try for 150 books in 2017. Just a classic Goodreads Reading Challenge!

Success! I read 180 books this year. Which is kind of amazing. I think this is the most I’ve ever read in a year.

7. Read what I want to read when I want to read it. I’ve been trying to move away from deadlines and guilt, especially with review copies, and to learn to mood-read again.

I’d say this was a Success! Although the Review Copies have suffered this past year, but I found that I was less stressed when I was more focused on reading what I felt like reading at the time then deadlines.

8. Finish series that I’ve started. Finish at least 10 series that I have started.

I Completed this one! I Finished exactly 10 Series that I had previously started. I’m quite happy with that, but I’m hoping to do better next year!

9. Be more active on other blogs. One of the best parts about blogging is getting comments. Everyone loves comments, and I love so many of your blogs out there. I want to be way more active on your blogs. I’m hoping to also extend this to bloggers that I don’t currently follow and try to see more of the book blogging community.

I’d say this was a success! The Idea of this Goal was just to be more active on other Blogs than I was the Previous year. When I first started blogging in 2016, I wasn’t really that active on other blogs.

10. Engage with my followers more. I enjoy reading your posts and I usually get interrupted mid-comment before I can reply.

This was another Successful Goal! This year I was a lot better with Commenting and Replying back. I commented a lot more to other Bloggers posts.

Chat With Me

I completed 8/10 of the goals I set in 2017. so, I’d say, even though I was two Goals away from completing all of the Goals, it’s a success. I’m pretty happy with what I managed to complete and Achieve. I’ll have my new list of goals for 2018 ready to share Tomorrow!

I’m also going to be updating my 2017 Reading Challenges in the next few days, if you’d like to check that & find out which Challenges I completed or Failed, and I will have my 2018 Reading Challenges up soon too. Thanks for reading, and thanks for joining me in 2017! Here’s to an even better 2018!

Did you set any reading/Blogging goals this year? How did you do? Let me know in the Comments!
