Reflection | Most Anticipated Releases of First Quarter 2022

Something I have found I enjoy doing is looking back on past TBRs and anticipated lists and taking mental stock of what I thought of those books. Was I right in choosing them? Why did I or did I not enjoy about them? Did I actually read them at all?

Yes, I know, there isn’t a limit to how many books you had add to your to-read shelf on Goodreads but if that number gets too big it makes me have a little internal panic. Easier on my brain to just tidy up.

The Bookish Blog Tag!

I’d been pondering bookish things to write about. Did you know, it isn’t easy writing about books when you are in a reading slump? Who knew. However, I was scrolling along and stumbled across The Bookish Blog Tag over at Kristin Kraves Books and it sounded like a fun time. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find who the creator of the tag is but lets just dive right in, shall we?
