What do you want to read next?


Still want to read Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard, also King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo, but once I’ve read them I have to wait for more, so I’m still savouring the fact I have them to read… I’ll probably continue the shelf purge in the meantime…

The Unread Shelf Challenge:

Any rants or raves?
Anything to boast or even just chat about?

O.W.L.s reading challenge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so excited about this when I found out, somewhere around the middle of the month, that I wrote a post on it HERE.

Also, I’m quite pleased with the fact I’ve spontaneously decided to take series off my selves. They’ve been there, untouched, for some while I haven’t read in maybe 7 years or so for various reasons.
I’m reading a book or two from them to decide if they’re something I still want to keep, if I want to have them as a digital book instead or if I want to get rid of them completely.

I also watched a video on book tabbing and it’s something I’m considering starting. Also making notations – but NOT in the books! I know my reviews need improving and I’m also quite bad with remembering things so I think these methods might help. I’m pretty sure I’ll tab every little thing though, so that’s not going to help much at first. Perhaps the first book I do should be a re-read?
Does anyone have any advise?
