I typically suck at freebie weeks. I never really know what to write about when I have a free slate. However, I had a eureka moment this week and thought I’d share with you all of the seemingly popular books that I have yet to read. Don’t hate me too much after this.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Love but Will Never Re-Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I am a huge advocate for re-reading books. There are so many benefits that come from re-reading, but the main one for me is that sense of comfort that comes with it. It’s like reuniting with a long lost friend almost. However, as much as I love some books, they’re not ones I’m likely to re-read. Here’s why:

March Wrap Up 2018

Sorry, this post is a little late. Admittedly I forgot all about my monthly recap, but it’s here and very short this time around. March was a very slumpy month for me. We got bombarded by more snow at the start of the month, but we did get a few days that showed signs of spring. 

As you know I’ve been in a terrible slump so far this year. However, my non-reading state gives me more time to catch up on my TV shows. In March, I was in the mood to re-watch Attack on Titan. As I was watching it I actually found myself appreciating the earlier episodes more in terms of their set up and how it helped establish the characters. Captain Levi is still my favourite though.

This months reading list is not that remarkable, but I always find that the best methods to beat a slump is to power through it or to re-read a favourite. Walk the Edge features one of my favourite McGarry couples and I never get tired of reading their story.

Discussion: Why I Don’t Set TBRs.

You may have noticed that I’ve been a bit absent in the recent weeks. I’m sorry for that. Right now life is a bit chaotic and most of the time when I’m at home I find that I’m too exhausted to even open my laptop. However, today I wanted to talk about to be read lists. These lists are often set at the beginning of each month with the hopes of being able to complete them by the end. I’ve tried to complete my tbr’s, but every time I go to set one, I find that 99% of the time they are forgotten about by the end. So, here are the main reasons why I no longer set tbr lists.
