Lots of life has happened. My daughter graduated from high school. My insomnia got weird (chronic & under treatment) which meant I didn’t have the energy to read & analyze books, which was my intention with doing reviews. Then I remembered I hated doing book reviews in...

Why I’ve Removed a Book From my #TBRhttps://tlinwright.com/why-ive-removed-a-book-from-my-tbr/ https://tlinwright.com/why-ive-removed-a-book-from-my-tbr/#respond Wed, 31 Jul 2019 00:54:23 +0000 https://tlinwright.com/?p=1997 I had Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens as a Debut Novel to read on my Popsugar Reading Challenge List (which I dearly hope I can get to finishing up but that is another post) but reading this Slate article has made me leery of reading it, and I don’t think it’ll be something I’ll enjoy. EDIT: I’ve found an old New Yorker article (2010) about Delia Owen &.

Book Tracking & Nerderyhttps://tlinwright.com/book-tracking-nerdery/ https://tlinwright.com/book-tracking-nerdery/#comments Sun, 27 Jan 2019 23:35:17 +0000 https://tlinwright.com/?p=1691 I’m very proud to admit I am a nerd about books. And tracking, though I am not very consistent. Yet. That’s one of my goals this year is to be more consistent in tracking what I’ve read, so I’m going to share my methods in book tracking as a way to keep me accountable. So along with my Goodreads account, I’m using a notebook and a book tracking spreadsheet. It’.

2019 Reading Challenges Reading Listhttps://tlinwright.com/2019-reading-challenges-reading-list/ https://tlinwright.com/2019-reading-challenges-reading-list/#comments Mon, 14 Jan 2019 15:10:05 +0000 https://tlinwright.com/?p=1627 In an effort to have an organized reading list, I made a spreadsheet of all the prompts in the various reading challenges I’m a part of this year then threw the entire thing in a google doc just to see how nicely it’ll print. I got the idea from this Google Sheets spreadsheet, but I did a little editing. I did use some of the suggestions for my own list as they sounded really...

Classics Club Challengehttps://tlinwright.com/classics-club-challenge/ https://tlinwright.com/classics-club-challenge/#respond Wed, 02 Jan 2019 14:45:14 +0000 https://tlinwright.com/?p=1429 This is an ambitious challenge but simple: anywhere from fifty to 200 books on a reading list. Five years to do it, though, which does help since many of the books I picked are door-stoppers. I aim to feature more women writers and a wide range of eras and cultures in my list. I’ll be adding to the list as I find more but so far my list is at 124 books. Each book finished will be linked back here...

2019 Reading Women Challengehttps://tlinwright.com/2019-reading-women-challenge/ https://tlinwright.com/2019-reading-women-challenge/#respond Tue, 01 Jan 2019 20:45:11 +0000 https://tlinwright.com/?p=1474 In an effort to diversify my reading, I found this challenge. Fairly simple, I think. 24 books with a couple of bonus options to round things out to read a book every other week. I’ll be working on this along with my other challenges and projects and will be editing the list as I find books to fit the prompts. A mystery or thriller by a woman of color – Murder in G Major by Alexia...

2019 PopSugar Reading Challengehttps://tlinwright.com/2019-popsugar-reading-challenge/ https://tlinwright.com/2019-popsugar-reading-challenge/#respond Tue, 01 Jan 2019 18:59:18 +0000 https://tlinwright.com/?p=1202 I’ll be doing the PopSugar Reading Challenge for 2019. Fifty books is pretty ambitious considering my other challenges but I’m giving it my best shot. A book becoming a movie in 2019 – Little Women by Louisa May Alcott OR The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath A book that makes you nostalgic A book written by a musician (fiction or nonfiction) –Ten Ways Not to Commit Suicide by...

I’m planning on putting different books than my other challenges, but I may double up, depending on if anything grabs my attention. 1. A Book With More Than 500 Pages – The Outsider by Stephen King 2. Book You Haven’t Read by Author You Love: The Girl Who Knew Too Much by Amanda Quick 3. Goodreads winner in 2018 – I&#
