#ReadingResolutions

One of my #ReadingResolutions for 2022 was to not acquire any more galleys until I had read all of my backlog.

Friends, it‘s January 5th and I have just been approved for two ARCs.

There‘s always next year. 😳

Chrissyreadit 🤣what are they 3w
sprainedbrain @Chrissyreadit in my defense, they were both too good to pass up. One was Mecca by Susan Straight and the other is 3w
Kappadeemom Mine too but I just need to give it up 3w

Reggie Lol, out of 6 resolutions I‘m down 3 so far, so no worries chica. 3w
sprainedbrain @Kappadeemom the struggle is real! 😂 3w
sprainedbrain @readordierachel @Billypar I appreciate your support in the face of my abject failure. 😅 3w
sprainedbrain @ravenlee I hadn‘t thought to just amend!! 😂 3w
sprainedbrain @Reggie but that means you still have 3 good goals! Go you! 😂 3w
batsy To put it another way, resolutions flail in fear in the face of your commitment to reading 😁 3w
sprainedbrain @batsy ooooh I like that! 😅 3w
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Maybe you can reset & start again on the Chinese New Year. 🤣 3w
sprainedbrain @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick that‘s another excellent option! 😅 3w

Shardik | Richard Adams
post image
Pickpick

Shardik is beautiful and rich; terribly sad and hopeful. A story about regret, shame, repentance, suffering, faith and loss thereof, forgiveness, love. It was a slower read for me, but only because Richard Adams packs it tight with this one. It is lovely, I really enjoyed it.

This is my book 1 of (minimum) 2 for March, so on pace! Now, what next? 🤔

What are your #ReadingResolutions?

Mine, so far:
Appreciate and read what I already own.

That‘s it.

Gissy Me too but I can‘t put myself in a book ban because it doesn‘t going to work. But read more books, definitely is my goal in 2021, and maybe subscribe to an audiobook company. I have audible but there you have to buy the books and they are so expensive, is like buying the book twice. I want a company where you can borrow audiobooks. I think I can improve my reading speed by using audiobooks🧐Which one you both use? 13mo
BookishMarginalia @Gissy We have the public library (Orange County, Florida allows non-residents to purchase an annual library card — I recommend that!). Scribd is also good for borrowing audiobooks. 13mo
TravelsWithBooks @Gissy Definitely get a library card, if you don‘t have one already! Then attach it to Libby(or whatever app that supports your library). I borrow most of the audiobooks I listen to. Sometimes there is a wait, but it‘s worth it just to borrow and not buy. 13mo
jessinikkip My goal is 121 books in 2021, and that doesnt count work books on my Kindle, only books I already own or bring in this year. Not necessarily banning myself because that wont work but just making sure I read what I have and read more than I bring in. 13mo
Gissy Thank you! 13mo

In an effort to read some long-unread books, get my Netgalley stats up and start engaging with litsy on a regular basis in joining my first #bookspin this month. Excited already! @TheAromaofBooks #readingresolutions

MittenGirlPeach I love this challenge so much. I started in October and I look forward to the 2nd every month like it‘s Christmas! 13mo
TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! 13mo

✨2021 Reading Goals ✨

• Read more nonfic (perennial goal)
• Read poetry every day (*first thing* in the morning)
• Read ALL of my Book Club‘s picks this year (🙈 I‘m a bad seed)
• Read at least 1 Children‘s Classic per season
• Read a bunch of the page-to-screen adaptions I‘ve been putting off: most importantly, “Good Omens” & “The Haunting of Hill House”
•Read at least one chunkster (it‘s been a WHILE)

#ReadingResolutions

monalyisha Later additions: •Read some Moomin. It‘s what I call my rabbit at least a third of the time (even though her name is Moxie). I should probably know what kind of energy I‘m summoning. 😅 •Make a real effort to at least TRY to get my Reading Journal up-to-date. 🙈 (edited) 13mo

How to Build a Girl | Caitlin Moran

Finally got around to finishing this one. Caitlin created one of my favorite characters I‘ve ever had the pleasure of going on a journey with. I absolutely adore Johanna/Dolly, she is an absolute treasure. The only fault I have is that it was a pretty slow start.

I loved carmen‘s collection of stories “her body and other parties” so I‘m really excited to start this one. My depression has been sky high with this corona shit so everything I enjoy doing has fallen by the wayside as of late. I‘m hoping this will pull me out of it because I adore her writing.

Started this one on Friday. Also I finished the last book I started gosh I‘ve been litsy slacking. I‘ll post the review for the last one later this evening. Anyways, I‘m adoring this one to bits. It‘s so relatable.

Pros: interesting premise, main character that‘s an asshole, very well written. Cons: didn‘t enjoy supernatural element, some parts dragged out. Overall I quite enjoyed this one. I‘d give it a 3.5/5
