#ReadYourTomesAthon Announcement

Hi everyone!

So it looks like 2020 is the year of readathons, for me, anyways. There have been a myriad of them happening in years past, but I never managed to participate in many. This year, however, I’ve decided to change that. So, here I am, to announce my intent to participate in another readathon. I cannot say this will be the last announcement of the sort, however, the one in question this time is the #ReadYourTomesAthon by Vanessa, who blogs at The Wolf & Books.

Personally, I am ecstatic that this particular readathon has been created, because now I have legitimate motivation to read the massive books that have been on my TBR for a while now. Currently, the TBR I have for it is:

1. Steel Crow Saga by Paul Krueger

2. Peace and Turmoil (The Dark Shores Book 1) by Elliot Brooks

3. The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang

4. Jade City by Fonda Lee

5. The Inheritance Trilogy (bind up version from Amazon) by N.K. Jemison

6. The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemison

7. The City of Brass (The Daevabad Trilogy: Book 1) by S.A. Chakraborty

8. The Savior’s Champion by Jenna Moreci

9. The Devil’s Thief by Lisa Maxwell

Looking up at that list, I feel confident that I will manage to pick up each of those titles, considering that I own all of them. However, I am participating in another readathon, and do have other books outside of these that I’d like to read, so it’s all about managing my time and seeing what I can handle alongside life.

If you haven’t heard of this readathon, and you are a reader who loves tomes, then you should definitely check it out!

Until next time,

Year of the Asian Reading Challenge 2020 Announcement of Intention to Participate

Hi everyone!

This year, I’ve decided to sign up for the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge 2020. I hadn’t planned on participating originally, but after a glance at the tentative TBR I’ve set for myself this year, I honestly have no excuse not to.

With that being said, my Goodreads goal for 2020 had been previously set to 25 books, but given this and other reading challenges I foresee myself signing up for, that *may* change. Only time will tell, honestly.

Either way, in regards to the YARC, I am aiming for the Indian cobra, which is the second level, and requires 11 to 20 books by Asian authors to be read.

Green and blue award badge with a Indian Cobra in the center, and with two gold stars above the award.

Anyways, that’s about all I have for now. Has anyone else heard of this, and thought about joining? If you haven’t, then consider checking it out at The Quiet Pond book blog!

Until next time,

New Year, Same Blog (Basically)

Hi all!

It’s been a minute, hasn’t it?

Yes, I did intentionally quit writing for a while. Last year weighed me down like a ton of bricks, and blogging was the last thing on my mind.

Going forward with this year though, I plan to take it easy on myself, but I do still want to continue blogging. From the start, this has been a writing blog, with a variety of other topics mixed in, and I plan for that to remain the same this year. However, more emphasis may be placed on certain topics over others, depending on where my interest lies during any given week.

With that in mind, expect 1-2 posts at max each week, for now, unless otherwise stated. I’ve got a lot of topics I’d like to discuss, but it’s more a matter of sitting myself down to write them.

Anyways, I hope the rest of everyone else’s 2019 was great, and I wish y’all a wonderful new year, too!

Sincerely,

T.J.
