7 Books in 7 Days TBR | Self-Challenge

seven books in seven days

I have been really falling behind on reading lately. I have 15 books on Netgalley I haven’t even touched and my poor spending habits and book-buying addiction have caused me to purchase more books than I have been reading recently.

Because of this, I was inspired by someone on a book reading Facebook group to read 7 books in 7 days.

BOOKS THAT GIVE OFF SUMMER VIBES Summer reading

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme by The Artsy Reader.

Before I start this post, I just want to bring some awareness to the current situation at hand in the United States. I live in North Dakota, just one state over from the murder of George Floyd. I have always been very supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement and it’s time for anyone and everyone to take a stand. Please do some research and help in any way you can! Please click the links I’ve attached and educate yourself!

75 ways you can start helping.

This week’s topic is books that give off summer vibes. I love books with summer vibes because I live in North Dakota, where we get three months of heat and eight to nine months of snow.

My Reading Goals for 2020

I can’t believe 2019 is over. A lot happened this year that made it one of the best years yet. I graduated college a few weeks ago with an English Education degree, I moved into a new apartment with my boyfriend, my mental health is at an all-time high, and I read the most books I’ve ever read in a year (56!). With the wonderful year I had, I don’t have a lot of “resolutions” for the new year, but I do have some goals I’d like to reach.

Top 10 Favorite Books of 2019

2019 has been my best reading year ever. I am currently at 53 books, passing my Goodreads goal of 50, and beating my record for books read in a year. The most I’ve ever read in a year before has been 27, so I’ve almost doubled the books. I know the reasoning is that my last two semesters of college allowed me more time to get my reading done and also, my mental health is way better than it has been in past years. Since I read a decent amount of books this year, I decided to finally do my Top 10 Favorite Books of the Year.

Not only did I read more books this year, but I’ve also expanded the types of books I read! I typically stick to contemporary or mystery, but this year I was able to read a few fantasy books. I started to love the genre and I hope I’m able to read even more next year!

The Subjects by Sarah Hopkins – Book Review

Special thanks to Netgalley and Text Publishing Company for sending me the digital advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

Daniel is a sixteen-year-old drug dealer and he’s going to jail. Then, suddenly, he’s not.

A courtroom intervention. A long car ride to a big country house. Other ‘gifted delinquents’: the elusive, devastating Rachel, and Alex, so tightly wound he seems about to shatter.

So where are they? It’s not a school, despite the ‘lessons’ with the headsets and changing images. It’s not a psych unit—not if the absence of medication means anything. It’s not a jail, because Daniel’s free to leave. Or that’s what they tell him. He knows he and the others are part of an experiment. But he doesn’t know who’s running it or what they’re trying to prove. And he has no idea what they’re doing to him.
