TBR Challenge?

I feel like me and TBRs are a losing battle. We all know what happens. We have a lot of the books we want to read in a month. The most anticipated. The ones that we want to read. The end of the month rolls around and we haven't read them all.

For the history of the blog, l have done so many like this. l have been too ambitious or I want to read something else so those books remain unread. I would love to do a reaction because there are books I put on my TBR put to five years ago and I still haven't read them!

l have to admit that in daily life this year, the same thing has happened. I don't make TBRs for the blog but I like to have a pile of books that I want to read on my nightstand and so many of them are just sitting there. Unread and it is making me feel so bad. 

I know that this is because I haven't been reading as much as I like this year, especially in the last month or so. I use to have a lot more free time when l was at university. Now it just seems like my life is never-ending. I always have something I can do before I get to reading. 

I definitely do need to manage my time better in this case as I really want to read more. So hopefully in the month of May, I can make more time for reading because I do miss it. Also, my overall TBR is out of control so reading the books will definitely help with this!

In general, I think that I personally should get rid of TBRs because life is too unpredictable for me. I would love to be one of those people it works for and who sticks to them. But right now, that's just not me and that's OK.

I just need to get reading!

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
