Library Love: how much money have I saved? 

 

My goals:

  • 100 books – I have reached my target! As of writing I’ve read 130 books this year. I’ve decided not to go for a stretch goal because I don’t want to stress myself out.
  • Continue to read diversely – Yup, this was pretty good. I’ve read a couple of books for the Latinx Book Bingo, and I read How To Be Autistic by Charlotte Amelia Poe. (My review for this book is actually going to be published in Diva magazine!!) I also read a couple of queer novels as well.
  • Read more independently published/self-published authors – Yes, I believe that The Plus One by Natasha West is self-published.
  • Try to read more genres – I did well on this one! I read nonfiction, a thriller, fantasy, romance, poetry, and a graphic novel.
  • Try to read one graphic novel a month – yes, I read Lumberjanes: Friendship to the Max! I was planning on reading more graphic novels but I didn’t really have the time unfortunately.
  • Try to post three times a week – I’ve done really well with this goal!! I’m excited about the fact that I’m really on a roll with my blogging atm.
  • Increase Netgalley score – LMAO NO.

Every month I’m also going to update you with what books I’ve read for YARC (Year of the Asian Challenge!). This month I did so badly, because I didn’t read any books for YARC. I started The Beautiful by Renée Ahdieh, but I DNFed it. This maintains my total of 22. But this does still mean that I have officially exceeded my target, and won the Philippine tarsier badge, the Indian cobra badge, and the Malayan tapir badge!

 

Latinx Book Bingo update: 
I have currently read welcome to ghost town by Gretchen Gomez and What if it’s Us by Adam Silver and Becky Albertalli, as well as Undead Girl Gang. This has given me a bingo already! I’m also in the middle of listening to We Set the Dark on Fire via audiobook.
