MISC: Tree’s 2020 Reading Stats

So as you may or may not know, I'm in graduate school which means I like data and charts and finding weird patterns in stuff. So I get weirdly excited about my reading spreadsheet and sharing any conclusions I can draw from my reading.  Here is my post from 2019 in case you're interested? Idk why… Continue reading MISC: Tree’s 2020 Reading Stats

MINI REVIEWS: YA Books with Elections!

I studied political science in college and reading books that discuss politics is something I love I also love reading books and watching TV shows with heavy election plots. Shoutout to my faves The West Wing and Red, White & Royal Blue. However, often fictional elections are more fun than real elections. Today is the… Continue reading MINI REVIEWS: YA Books with Elections!

WRAP UP: Arc August Reading Challenge [Bree]

Since Tree and I both participated in ARC August this year (and did quite well, TBH), we figured we'd split up our wrap ups into two posts, instead of one really long one. If you're confused on what ARC August is, you can find more info on my post from 2019, when I first participated.… Continue reading WRAP UP: Arc August Reading Challenge [Bree]

READING CHALLENGE: I read 8 books in a week (not by choice)

But, since I did literally NO HOMEWORK during the weekend, I had to look at my assignments on Monday. I then looked at the assignment I had due for… Continue reading READING CHALLENGE: I read 8 books in a week (not by choice)

BLOGMAS DAY ELEVEN: A-Z Book Challenge

Tree did this challenge for Blogmas last year, and I thought I would try my hand at it this year! I'm really surprised that I managed to read almost all of the letters before deciding to even do this challenge. I only had to read two letter-specific books. (J & X) Rules: Use books I… Continue reading BLOGMAS DAY ELEVEN: A-Z Book Challenge

READING CHALLENGE: I read seven books in seven days

 An alternative title: I read seven books in seven days and regretted it. As someone who has being doing Goodreads reading challenges since 2013 you would think that I cared a lot about the number of books that I read. But, I really don't. I set a goal that I think I can "easily" meet… Continue reading READING CHALLENGE: I read seven books in seven days
