Favorite and Disappointing YA Books of 2019 (+ 2020 Reading Goal)

Well, I said I wasn’t going to write a 2019 wrap-up post since my favorite and disappointing books are obviously very subjective. But I wanted to get it on the fun since I had some time to write, and I’m determined to start the new year off well here on my blog. 🙂

I also decided to specifically talk about Young Adult books. I’ve read a fair amount of new adult and romance books this year, but not enough to warrant a completely different blog post. 😛

August ’19 Wrap-up and Book Haul (+ an Unhaul)

Hello, friends! Another month has come to an end. We’re in the last stretch of 2019. The days aren’t sweltering hot anymore, I’ve already burned a pumpkin-scented candle and had my first taste of the seasonal drinks at Starbucks. I’m dreaming about autumn as I type this… *sigh*

Like last month, August was another good reading month for me. The fact that I’m not reviewing in-depth every single book I read has helped a lot. I did have a lot of ARCs and eARCS for August, so I definitely reviewed those individually (which I will link below).

July ’19 Wrap-up and Book Haul!

Hello, friends! I am sort of back from my hiatus but not really… 😛 I’ll slowly ease my way back into it, that’s for sure.

Anyway, remember when I said I wouldn’t buy a lot of books in July? Well… That completely didn’t happen at all. Oops! Little did I know about the sales and the coupons and how I can’t resist any of that. 😂

January ’19 Wrap-up and Book Haul!

Look at me doing wrap-up and book haul posts two months in a row! 😱 I’m trying to be better, really I am, lol!

January was my birthday month (I turned 30! 😱), and while I thought I would go wild during the month I was surprisingly tame. Most of the books I received were gifts, from giveaways, or publishers (okay, 1 book was from a publisher 🙊). As for the wrap-up… Again fairly tame. I finished Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey last month, and while I still have Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee to play, I’m taking a break which means I have more free time to read (now whether I actually hunker down to read is the better question… 🤔).

Enough of my babble!

July ’18 Wrap-up and Book Haul!

I can’t believe August is already here! I feel like I say that every time a new month begins, but it’s true! It just seems we’re on the downward slope of 2018 (which is also a crazy thought)!

I was on summer break for the month of July, and finished the month with a impressive end count, if I do say so myself. I actually posted a lot of the July as well, which is also great because who knows where it’ll go from here!
