WWW WEDNESDAY – 07/04/2021

This is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

All you need to do is answer the following three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Also, do follow the host and other bloggers who participate!

It is wonderful to know what everyone is reading and recommendations are always welcome!

 ——————————————————————————————————————

What are you currently reading?

My current reads are more focused on feel good romances. I am taking a small break from reading serious and emotionally heavy books!

What did you recently finish reading?

The Little Orchard on the Lane by Tilly Tennant

What do you think you’ll read next?

       There are too many books on the TBR. I am hoping to get into some historical fiction as well as mythological fiction next!

Books to Read (TBR list) – January 2021

Hello All,

I am not normally in the habit of planning ahead with the books I read. I tend to read purely based on my mood and of course based on Blog Tour deadlines (if I have signed up or committed to an author).

However, this year, I decided to make some changes to the way I read, review and blog! Having signed up for so many different kinds of reading challenges, I am trying to be better organized (if I can manage it :P).

In this post, I have made a tentative list of books that I plan to read in January.

Here goes…. Don’t hesitate to share your thoughts, feedback or recommendations!

New Year 2021: Reading Goals and Challenges

Hello All,

First off I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year!

With the start of a new year, I wanted to take a moment to try to define some simple reading goals for myself in addition to the Reading Challenges that I have signed-up for.

I have had the pleasure of interacting with so many wonderful bloggers, authors and publishers that I am further inspired to take both my reading journey and blog a step further. I look forward to further collaborations and book talks with everyone!

So without further ado, here are the proposed Reading Goals and Challenges:

Goodreads Reading Challenge – 100 Books

This is a challenge that I have been doing since 2016 and I hope to continue it. The challenge helps to keep track of the books I read in addition to providing a promotion in itself for the authors when the books are shelved and reviews are written.

What’s in a Name? Challenge 2021 – 6 categories

2021 Reading Challenge: Netgalley and Edelweiss – 25 Books

Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2021 -10 Books

Mount TBR Challenge 2021 – 12 Books

Note: The number of books chosen for the challenges will also be included towards the Goodreads Reading challenge.

Don’t hesitate to comment and share your thoughts, goals and book recommendations on the post!
