My (Physical) TBR Shelf Review // How Did I Get So Many?

Today, I’m planning on doing something that I don’t think I’ve ever done before, and that’s go over my physical TBR with all of you. Since I got home from school, I’ve reorganized my room so that my bookshelf only consists of books i’ve already read, and the shelf above my desk is filled with the books that I haven’t read, but desperately need to. Since I’ve been sitting on my bed staring at that very shelf for about an hour now, I figured it could serve as pretty good inspiration for a post. So, welcome to my physical TBR:

The NOPE Book Tag

i’m normally not this on top of tags (i mean, i was only tagged in this one, about, 15 days ago!)  and i skipped a bunch of the ones i was supposed to do to get to this one, but it just seemed super fun, and i haven’t done anything like this in a while, so i figured it was worth moving up in the cue.  The Nope Book Tag (shoutout to the absolutely incredible HOLLY @ Nutfree Nerd for tagging me!) probably appeals to me so much because it’s basically exactly what it sounds– you talk about all of your negative book opinions. And since i’m stuck in a pit of self loathing and hatred, being a little bit negative may be exactly what i need. so get ready folks.

Discussion: Does Genre Choice Matter in the Long Term?

Reminder that the 2nd Annual Book Blogger Awards are going on right now!!!!! If you haven’t placed your nominations yet, head over to the rules page and vote! This is our chance to nominate all of your favorite book bloggers and give them the recognition that they deserve (plus, getting nominated might just make someone’s day). Nominations close at the end of the month.

so i had a lot of trouble formulating the title for this blog post, and i guess that’s probably because i’m super unsure of what i’m actually trying to say. i’ve been spending a while brainstorming good discussion posts, because i know i haven’t posted one in a long time, and now i have something that i want to write about, but i can’t figure out how to go about it. so hopefully by the time you read it, this post will have been edited 4 times (update: it took 7) and sound semi-coherent, but i thought it was relevant information that i’m having trouble writing this.

The 4 Best Reading Spots on My College Campus

Reminder that the 2nd Annual Book Blogger Awards are going on right now!!!!! If you haven’t placed your nominations yet, head over to the rules page and vote! This is our chance to nominate all of your favorite book bloggers and give them the recognition that they deserve (plus, getting nominated might just make someone’s day). Nominations close at the end of the month.

Before this year, I never considered where I was reading.  I mean, it didn’t really seem to matter that much. Whenever I had a spare moment, whether it was in the car, in my room, or out at the mall, I could just pull out my kindle/book/phone, and start reading. I actually remember reading a post on “places to read” (I can’t remember who wrote it, so sorry for the lack of credit if this was you) a couple of years ago and my instant reaction was “why do you need a place to read? can’t reading happen everywhere”?

Which is why it’s somewhat ironic that I’m writing this post today.
