Non-fiction November 2019 | TBR

IMG_0327

Hello, it is away to be November tomorrow, which means that it’s time to take part in non-fiction November.

This is the first year I’ve ever taken part, I’m not normally one for a lot of non-fiction, but I thought it would give me a good opportunity to get through some of the books I’ve had on my shelves for ages.

I’m not going to be exclusively reading non-fiction, and I probably won’t be getting through all of these, but I wanted to share the ones I have on my shelf, and what I think I might get to at some point soon.

My favourites are memoirs, but I’ve tried to give myself a little bit of a range of things to read.

The Reading Rush TBR | 2019

Hello!

I know my last post was sharing my TBR for the upcoming N.E.W.T.s magical readathon, but I decided last minute to take part in this year’s The Reading Rush, which was formerly known as Booktubeathon.

It has seven different challenges, each with a prompt to read a specific book.

I’ve tried to pick relatively short books, because otherwise I’ll never be able to get them all read in a week! Not that I think I’ll be able to get them all done anyway.

There’s also a dedicated website where you can track all your pages, which I’m super excited to use!

For anyone else interested in taking part, it begins today and runs until Sunday.

I probably will only get through one or two of these, but I’ve created an entire TBR in case i’m feeling particularly productive!

Hello!

I’m taking part in this year’s magical readathon, hosted by G over at Book Roast on Youtube. It’s a month-long readathon organised for August, which follows on from April’s O.W.L.s readathon. After completing all my books for that one, I thought I’d carry on with next month’s challenge.

I thought I’d actually be organised unlike I was for the O.W.L.s, and plan out my books for the month, and share them with you all!

My unread book shame | March reading plans

IMG_0169.JPG

I’ve always known that my to be read pile – or more accurately, shelf – is getting way out of hand.

Recently I watched a heap of videos by Drinking by my Shelf on Youtube, where she has to balance the number of books on her TBR, so that the numbers always have to be the same, or -5.

In a bid to try and get my physical list down, I thought I’d take some inspiration from this and count the number of unread books on my own shelves, to make sure that my goal for the year was to get the total number down. I won’t be getting rid of a certain number of books every month, but I do hope to get the number on my TBR down.

At the time of writing this (which is a little bit in advance of it going up because I fancy myself organised), I have 112.

Prudence and The Crow – July 17

Earlier this month I decided to try something new that I had never tried before- book subscription boxes.

I do watch a fair amount of unboxings on Youtube, but most of the companies I often see tend to be US-based, and with me living in Scotland it’s not exactly ideal even if they do international shipping.

So when I stumbled across UK-based Prudence and the Crow, I immediately placed an order.
