M&M’s pick my tbr for November // nonfiction, romance & award-winning books

I really enjoyed putting up my tbr for October, so I thought I’d like to continue with this little fun game to pick four books I will read in November, too. In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, HERE you can read all the plus information about it. I was looking forward to the end of the month to play this game, and not just because I could eat M&M’s then… Absolutely not, I’m even offended that this thought came up in your mind! 😂 Jokes aside, I was truly looking forward to picking my next books. So, let’s see what the M&M’s chose for me! Also, I decided to make a uniform header for this tbr game, and I really like how it turned out!

Five-star predictions wrap-up & new predictions

I wrote a post back in 2020 called Five-star predictions, and now I finally have read all six books! So in this post, I’m going to check out how accurate I was, and also select five more books I think will be five-star reads. It took me a crazy long time to finish all of the books because I wasn’t prioritising any of them, I just read them whenever I felt like it. I think this new batch will take less time but we shall see.

M&M’s pick my tbr for October // mysteries and spooky books

So, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I rarely do tbrs, just for occasional read-a-thons. I used to set myself a monthly tbr back when I had my old Hungarian blog, but I realised that it wasn’t for me. However, when I stumbled upon THIS video, I was instantly hooked by the idea. Dani @ Current Chapter booktube page created this absolutely amazing tbr challenge a few years ago, and she does it basically every month. I mean, combining sweets and books is my dream, so I was like heck yeah, let’s try this. So, even though I’m not much of a tbr person, I’ve decided to just go for it, and see if I like it. I will choose four books because that sounds reasonable to me. Since it’s going to be October, I wanted to pick spookier reads because I won’t participate in any Halloween-themed read-a-thons this year.

Some of my favourite first lines from classics

Recently, out of the blue, I started thinking about first lines in classics. I could easily quote a few, and I noticed how beautiful, interesting or strong most of them were. So today I’m going to share some of my favourites, as all of them would make a never-ending blog post. I haven’t read all of the mentioned books, some I don’t have any intention to, however, I still wanted to feature them here. Also, just a quick disclaimer that I’m not an English student, so my reasonings will not be academic or analytic, haha.

2021 statistics

No, you are reading the title correctly. This post is going to be all about bookish stats related to my 2021 reads. So, you may be wondering, why on Earth do I care about this, after all, last year has ended eight months ago. That’s a good question though. And the answer is: I have no clue. I just suddenly felt like making a post about it, as when it was time for this in January, I was just not in the mental space to give a rat’s ass about statistics. But now, I was thinking about how much I enjoyed putting together my 2020 statistics, and I was sad how I missed last year’s. Then I realised, who said I couldn’t do it this late? Stats won’t expire after all… So, if you like pie charts, accompany me while I analyse my reading.

How many books have I read from my read-a-thon tbrs?

I read Caro’s post about how many of her anticipated 2021 releases she read, and then I thought it would be really interesting to check out how many I’ve read from all the read-a-thons I participated in. There are thirteen tbrs on this blog, and I’m now going to go through all of them! I enjoy putting together tbrs for read-a-thons, and I want to see if I actually follow through my plans. Three things before I start: 1) I’m not counting rereads because those were obviously already read by the time I made that tbr, 2) some books are on multiple tbrs, so I’m only mentioning them in the first tbr they appeared in, 3) they don’t have to be read in that month the read-a-thon took place, I just want to know if I read them up until this point, or not. Without further ado, let’s jump into this post!

All the unread books I own

Compared to when I first got acquainted with the international bookish world, I definitely own less unread books. I used to buy books I knew very little about, just wanting to read it because of the hype, then realising a few months later that I’d never read them. Nowadays I rarely buy books I haven’t already read from the library, but it happens occasionally. This year I’d like to focus on reading all of them, but I’m not in a rush.

Tomes on my tbr

Two posts in a row! This has never happened before on this blog, but I guess this day is just as good as any to try something new. I read Caro‘s most recent post this morning, and I felt so inspired that I immediately started writing my own. She shared the longest books on her tbr, and now I’m here to do the same, because it seems fun! All of these tomes are over 500 pages, and look as intimidating as a high mountain. So let’s grab our mountain climbing gears, and conquer these beasts!

Some of the nonfiction books I’m excited about

Hello friends! Today I thought I’d share some of the many nonfiction books that are on my tbr list. There was a time when I didn’t really read from this genre, but my appreciation for them came back, stronger than ever! My favourite types are memoirs, I am fond of reading other people’s experiences. I also love to learn about different cultures and the topic of psychology.
