**ALL** The Romance Books I’ve Read + My Thoughts on Them

Love is in the air….or so they say. It’s February, which means Valentine’s Day, which means all the book-ish content I’ve been seeing on my social media lately is romance related.

When it comes to this genre in particular, I’m indifferent, to be completely honest. In general, it takes a lot for me to really enjoy a romance book and I tend to rate most of them 3-stars, because although they’re fine in content, they just don’t do it for me. That being said, this is definitely a genre that has received so much (unwarranted) slack in the past and present. I have a lot of thoughts about that so be on the look out for a discussion post coming your way soon ๐Ÿ‘€

Books I Read in January

January was a relaxing start to the new year, and felt like it flew by way too quick.

I was on break for basically the entirety of the month, and I’m lucky enough to have had that time to relax after a stressful semester of classes. I managed to finish 4 books, which admittedly is less than I had hoped for. That being said, they were all high ratings, and I stand by the sentiment of quality over quantity.

Books That Got me Into Reading

As someone who has considered herself a reader for basically my whole life, it’s hard to pinpoint the *one* book that really got me invested in the hobby. Surprisingly, though, it’s a question I get asked a lot!

Reading books is something I’ve loved to do since the day I learned to read, and before then, I still really enjoyed listening to stories read to me. They’ve always just been a constant in my life, and I’m grateful it’s a hobby I never really grew out of.

Books I Read in December | monthly wrap-up

Happy new year, friends! I hope the first couple days of 2022 have treated you well. I’ve been doing lots of reading and relaxing and it has been GREAT.

Surprisingly, I managed to read enough in December to finish the year with 51 books ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ If you all remember a certain post, I was stressing about not being able to do that but thankfully everything worked out and I did some hardcore reading to reach my goal.

MY 2021 FAVORITES || Yearly Wrap-Up

YOU GUYS!! Can you believe there’s only a few more days left of 2021 ๐Ÿ˜ณ this year felt like the longest ever, but at the same time flew by really quick.

There were a lot of firsts. I moved into an apartment, did my first in-person semester of college, and inevitably, made a lot of new experiences there, some good and some bad. Regardless of how this year turned out, I know it’ll be a memorable one for so many reasons.

All that being said, I’m ready to say bye to 2021.

2021 Diverse Book Releases

Confession time: I’ve only read one 2021 release this year.

When the year started, I made it my own personal mission to read as many books on my backlist TBR as possible. That means that I’ve read a lot of books I’d been meaning to pick up in previous years, and caught up on those instead of new ones.

Books I *WILL* Read Before 2021 Ends

Me? Posting regularly? Who would’ve thought ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€ HELLO everyone, if there’s one thing I learned in the past couple months, it’s that I am not good at balancing reading and school.

I’ve read a total of 46 books so far this year, but I’m determined to get that that number up to 50, because why not. I feel like that’s a good, achievable goal that isn’t too crazy or out there. Well, there’s also a bit of a problem…

Disappointing Reads of 2021

Okay HELLO ๐Ÿ˜ณ it has yet again been a full MONTH since my last post, and all I have to say for myself is that college is brutal. Final exams are next week, project deadlines are coming up, and to top it all off, I haven’t read anything since September.

Books as Songs from Red (Taylor’s Version)

I have been COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS until Taylor Swift drops Red (Taylor’s Version),,, and on November 12th, you can probably catch me laying on the floor of my room with a box of tissues nearby ๐Ÿฅฒ most of those tears will probably be shed from listening to the 10 minute version of All Too Well.

Now, whether or not you’re a self proclaimed swiftie, I’ve tried my best to have a book from a variety of genres so hopefully you can find something that fits the vibe! My goal was to have a book for everyone, but it did prove to be quite a challenge. This honestly might have been the hardest post I’ve ever written, and I realized in the process that I really have not read as much romance as I would’ve thought,,,and also I’m a huge fan of second-chance romance, apparently, so expect a lot of that.

NOTE: This list does not include every song from Red. I tried my best to do most of them though!
