Top Ten Tuesday: Books Written Before I Was Born

Any 1994 babies here? I’m excited to be back with another Top Ten Tuesday today with this week’s prompt of books that were written before I was born.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, and each week there’s a prompt for you to use in building your own bookish top ten list!

Once again, I’m going to use this meme to highlight some of the books on my TBR. I thought I’d have a lot more trouble with this because I tend to read (and want to read) more modern books but I actually had just enough for this list on my to-read shelf!

2020 Recap: Final Challenge Update

As someone who doesn’t like to put too much pressure on my reading, I signed up for an awful lot of challenges last year! I’m not usually into planning my reads ahead of time as I just go where motivation takes me, but it helped that most of the challenges I set for myself were aimed at tackling the books I already own or want to read.

You can check out my initial challenges post for 2020, but below I’ll go into detail on how I did!


2020 Challenges

I like to keep my TBR pile in check so I always set a goal to reduce my Goodreads to-read shelf to under 200. I made it to 198 by the end of the year! Though of course that’s already increased with new books I’ve learned about this year 😛

Spines Speak: December TBR

Today’s post is a mix of life updates and some reading plans! Thanks to those who voted for what I should post on my Twitter poll, though I’m ignoring the winning choice of ‘mini reviews’ 😛

I don’t often set a monthly TBR but as I’m getting ready to move at the end of the month (and unfortunately can’t fit all my books in my suitcase), I’ve picked out a few books I’d like to read before I leave.

In some exciting news, my library re-opened for curbside pick-up! I’d talked about my plans for IndigAThon being a bit derailed as I was planning to read a bunch of library books but my library closed before I could pick up my holds. But over a month later, I’ve got my books!
