Monthly Wrap Up | August 2021

August felt like the longest month and was also kind of slow on the reading front for me, courtesy of a reading slump that lasted over a week. So I didn’t get through as many books as I usually do, but there were a few interesting reads. September, however, is the month I look forward to the most all year, and 2021 is no exception. This month alone is adding 16 new titles to my TBR and I can’t wait to read all of them – make sure to check out my post this Saturday highlighting the books I’m most excited for! With that, let’s take a look at my comparatively quiet August.

Monthly Wrap Up | July 2021

July wasn’t a particularly good reading month for me as I had not one but two mini reading slumps in the second half of the month. However, I’m very close to my original reading goal for the year of 100 books, so it is now officially raised to 150! This is a much shorter wrap up than usual, but let’s take a look!

Monthly Wrap Up | June 2021

Welcome back to my monthly wrapup! June felt like the longest month for some reason, but it was also a great reading month. A bunch of my library holds came in at last, so I was able to catch up on some of the new releases from earlier this year. I’m also nearing my first reading goal of the year, so I fully expect to have moved it up to 150 by the time I post next month’s wrapup. Let’s take a look!

Monthly Wrap Up | May 2021

Hello readers! I’m sharing my monthly wrapup a day earlier than usual for May since this week on my blog turned out to be somewhat packed so I’m trying to spread out the posts a little. This month was much slower than usual in terms of reading and blogging since I wasn’t well for a while and needed to take quite a few days from my books which threw my schedule way off track. I did get to read some really great books though and thanks to the blog tours I was part of this month, I picked up two amazing books that I probably wouldn’t have heard of otherwise. Let’s take a look at what I read!

Monthly Wrap Up | April 2021

Hello readers! I can’t believe it’s time for another monthly wrap up already – April certainly flew by, and with it the first third of 2021. The major event this month for me was the Shadow and Bone Netflix series, which was amazing – it’s easily one of the best book to screen adaptations I’ve seen in some time. I read quite an interesting mix of books this month when I wasn’t completely distracted by the show, and some were totally unexpected in how good – or bad – they turned out to be. Let’s take a look at my April wrap up!

Monthly Wrap Up | March 2021

March was a surprisingly productive month for me on both the reading and blogging fronts. For the first time in several months, I’m actually ahead of schedule, and I’m hoping April will be the same. Anyway, on with the post, let’s look at my reading month!

Monthly Wrap Up | February 2021

Hello readers! February is the shortest month of the year, but I always feel like it crawls by, and this year was no exception. I didn’t get as much reading done this month as I would have liked, however, many of those I did read were rather long and heavy so I had to pace myself. It’s finally March though, and there are some amazing books to look forward to this month, from Chain of Iron to Rule of Wolves – I can’t wait!

Monthly Wrap Up | January 2021

Hello readers! One month of the new year is already over and I hope you’re all having a great 2021 so far (or atleast better than 2020). It has been a pretty busy start to the year for me, but I did get a good amount of reading done. New titles this month have been something of a mixed bag, but I did manage to get to a few backlist titles I had left over from last year as well. Let’s take a look at what I read this month!

2020 Wrap Up – A Year in Books + What’s Coming in 2021

2020 has been the longest year, but it’s over at last. On the blogging front however, it has been an amazing year and I’ve hit so many milestones! I wrote my 300th post in August, hit 500 followers both here on WordPress and on Twitter in September and Worlds Unlike Our Own officially turned 2 years old in October. Let’s take a look at 2020 on my blog and what’s new this year!

Monthly Wrap Up | December 2020

Happy New Year 2021!!
This December was quite a hectic month for me as I attempted a 25 day Blogmas for the first time. Surprisingly enough, I actually managed to post everyday, and it was a lot of fun, so I’ll probably be continuing it going forward too! I read fewer books than usual this month, but I did spend much of my Christmas break catching up on TV shows and movies I’ve been meaning to watch for a while, so overall, a rather productive month!

Monthly Wrap Up | November 2020 | Blogmas Day 1

Monthly Wrap Up | November 2020
Blogmas Day 1

November has been my busiest month so far this year, between catching up on the last couple of pending 2020 titles and preparing for Blogmas. The major news this month is that I’ve completed my Goodreads reading goal! I won’t be raising it any further, but I’m hoping to get to around 225 by the end of December. And of course, Christmas is only weeks away and even though it’s going to be very quiet this year, I’m still very excited!

Monthly Wrap Up | October 2020

I can’t believe it’s already November! Hope you are all staying safe and had a great Halloween! October was a much better reading month than I expected, even if The Tower of Nero did send me into a mini reading slump (totally worth it). November is admittedly one of my favourite months of the year, mostly it’s my birthday month, but it’s also the time when the flood of new books has comparatively slowed down and I can finally start catching up. More importantly though, there’s just one month until A Sky Beyond the Storm is out, and I’m super excited! And now, onto the books!

Monthly Wrap Up | September 2020

September was quite a busy month for me, and not just from a blogging perspective. The month has flown by so quickly! I was able to get back on track with my TBR, and am now finally caught up and ready for October’s releases, primarily The Tower of Nero and Lightbringer, both of which I’ve been looking forward to all year. Now that it looks like I’m going to be working from home for the rest of the year atleast, I’m hoping to reach my current reading goal of 200 books well ahead of December, and maybe catch up on some backlist titles too. In other news, I finally hit 500 followers this month! Thank you so much to all my followers for your support in reaching this milestone!

Monthly Wrap Up | August 2020

August was comparatively a rather poor reading month for me, mainly because I had several heavier titles to get through, which meant I needed to take longer breaks between books. But fall is finally here, and with so many great books out in the next couple of weeks especially, I can’t wait to dive in!

Another month has flown past! July was pretty packed for me in terms of my 2020 TBR and I had a very productive reading month! My NetGalley shelf is exploding yet again and my goal for August is to get it back to that elusive 80% that I had before. In other news, my blog was featured in Alison @ BossyLibrarian‘s post of Best Book Blogs to Read This Summer earlier this month and I’d like to say thanks again to her for including me in this list along with all these amazing bloggers!

Monthly Wrap Up | June 2020

Happy Canada Day readers!! I can’t believe it’s July and we’re already halfway through 2020! June went by rather quickly despite yet another month of social distancing. While I didn’t read as many books as last month – my speed drastically slowed down this month for some reason – I am on track with my ARC reviews and nearly caught up on this year’s TBR. I am also only fifteen books from my updated reading goal, which probably means I’ll be increasing it again next month. I’m really hoping I can cross 200 books this year!

Monthly Wrap Up | May 2020

May has been quite the productive month for me! Admittedly, I spent more of my reading time on comics this month than I intended to, but I did still manage to get some pretty good novels in there too. Another month of mostly staying home has gone by and it looks like I’m going to be working from home for a while yet, but in good news, the bookstores are finally open again! I’ve also been trying to find better ways to track my TBR and especially my ARCs this month and hopefully it’ll to be a lot more efficient going forward. And of course, I hit my first reading goal for the Goodreads Reading Challenge, which was 100 books and have now moved it up to the next goal of 150! Happy reading and stay safe!

Monthly Wrap Up | April 2020

April felt like the longest month yet this year! Staying indoors freed up a lot more time for reading than usual, and I was able to check off multiple larger titles off both my TBR for this year as well as my backlist, just in time for the flood of new books that usually accompanies May.

Monthly Wrap Up | March 2020

March has been a pretty crazy month and the last two weeks especially have flown by. Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. We’re not on lockdown here in Toronto so far, but still trying to stay home as much as possible, which gets boring really quickly, but makes for a lot of added reading time at least.😃 Here’s a chance to work on that no doubt enormous TBR pile! But in other news, I got through quite a number of books this month, including some childhood favourites.

Monthly Wrap Up | February 2020

February might be the shortest month of the year, but it was my busiest in quite some time! I’m still on track with all of my reading goals and I also made a major dent in my backlist this month, finally finishing the second longest book I had in there, just in time for March, which has nearly half a dozen of my most anticipated books for the year! Two days until Chain of Gold!!
My 2020 TBR page is now updated through April, and will continue to be updated as I finish reading and reviewing those books.
