I have to be honest, I didn't intend to create this large lump of a post for all the books I've read this year. I honestly wasn't sure whether I wanted to focus on podcasting or blogging. Right now, I'm really loving the blogging front, so this is where this is being housed.
This year, I've made the journey to read more. I've already read more books than I read last year. It wasn't hard...I read 8 books last year. It was an awful reading year, and I'm so glad to say I've read 16 books thus far. My goal for reading this year was to read the popular current books as well as catch up on other book series that I fell behind (namely Cassandra Clare's books).
I thought about doing little book reviews on these books, but I decided against it. I honestly don't remember all my thoughts about all the books I've read, but I can tell you I thoroughly enjoyed most of these books. I absolutely loved reading the new releases as well as the books that wrapped up a series. It was also interesting to see the popular books, and try to buy into the hype (also, I'm fairly certain TikTok doesn't know the definition of spicy).
