Top Ten Tuesday | Bookish Discoveries I Made in 2019

Happy Tuesday, readers!

We’re halfway through January. And there’s barely any snow on the ground. Hopefully, we get some of the white stuff soon, right? For this week’s topic, I wasn’t sure what I’d write, but I came up with a few topics.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The next prompt is bookish discoveries I made in 2019.

Beyond the Blurb | Why Goodreads Reading Challenge Doesn’t Work for Me

Morning, readers!

Ever since I started blogging full-time, I always pledged fifty books to my annual Goodreads Reading Challenge. For two years straight, I countlessly set my challenge high. Sure, reading fifty books a year isn’t a lot to some people who read more than a hundred. But since I signed up for Goodreads, I completed each annual challenge.

But last year, I realized something. I don’t want to pledge fifty books anymore. Instead, I want to pledge lower. Yes, you read that right. Even though I’m a full-time blogger and reader, I cannot set my challenge high. For my next discussion post, I want to talk about the reasons why I’ve decided to set my Goodreads challenge at thirty, not fifty.

Even though this list isn’t complete, I want to highlight some of the upcoming titles that sparked my interest. So let’s get to it.

Beyond the Blurb | Tips and Tricks on Buying Book Boxes

I’ve talked about book box companies and subscriptions before. As I type out this post, I’m in a subscription ban since I’ve run out of room. But I’ve never discussed the dangers of dealing with certain book box companies.

More and more, I see customers either getting ripped off of a product or entirely losing a purchase. We don’t truly have a guide to help us out, now do we? Well, I hope to change that. So for my next discussion post, I’ll be giving you tips and tricks on buying book boxes and the ones you should either go for or look out for.

Please note that not everyone has had the same experience as you, and that goes for me. As a disclaimer, this discussion post is of my own opinion, which may not match yours. It’s not intended to offend, but to offer support.
