Summary of 2021 Reading + 2022 Reading Goals – Let’s Talk Bookish

So, a very funny thing happened.

It’s not actually really funny, but you know, it sounds better when I say that a funny thing happened.

I dropped off the face of the blogging realm right before finals started, and stayed off the face of the blogging realm until today. Kind of almost a month and a half of complete radio silence.

I think that’s the longest ever that I’ve gone without posting something on here. Usually there’s at least one post, like sharing the topics for LTB, or something I’d prepared long beforehand, that makes sure my blog isn’t completely dead for too long.

And now I’m back, determined to do something about this…three days before the start of the Spring semester. When I had an entire month of winter break, I didn’t do anything. It’s not until three days before the semester that I finally decide to do something.

You guys. My brain constantly baffles me.

I don’t know what the future of this blog is going to be, and I am writing a post trying to figure out that future if there is going to be one. But for now, I’m just here to talk about my reading goals for 2022.

January 2022 – Let’s Talk Bookish

Afternoon friends, welcome back! Today, Dani and I are sharing the topics for January 2022.

I can’t believe we’re planning for January; another year has already gone by, both too slow and fast at the same time. 2021 wasn’t entirely horrible, it even had its bright spots at times, so here’s to hoping that the next year will continue to be better. i’m never going to forget the hopes we had for 2020 and the ensuing catastrophe that happened instead, so I wish for a better 2022 with a very very healthy dose of skepticism.

In case you’re new to this meme:

What Really Makes a Blog Hiatus – Let’s Talk Bookish

Hello, hello, welcome back to the blog! I hope you’re having a lovely day, and if not, that the day will get better ❤

I am so ready for this break, and can’t wait to just do absolutely nothing. I’m purposefully not making any plans so I don’t put pressure on myself and then be disappointed when I don’t follow through. I’m taking this break as it goes, and we’ll see if anything comes out of it blogging or reading wise.

Despite me not making plans, I still kind of want to do a reading update. I haven’t done one in a while, and I’ve been feeling a little slump-y and need some recommendations, so maybe a post talking about all that will come next week.

Maybe.

I’d appreciate any recommendations you may have now though!

In other news, I’ve updated the Let’s Talk Bookish page to include this month and next month’s topics, so you can head here to check them all out. And well, it is Friday, so we’ve got another topic to discuss today.

When A Post Flops – Let’s Talk Bookish

Hi friends, welcome back to the blog! It’s been a while. The semester is thankfully halfway over, and the break will soon finally be here. I hope the past month has been kind to you all, and if not, hopefully this month will be much better.

It’s Friday, and I’m back to finally participate in LTB after so long. Quick note: I missed out on posting the topics for December last week, but you can find Dani’s announcement for them here, and I’ll work on adding them to the official Let’s Talk Bookish page hopefully by the end of today.

November 2021 – Let’s Talk Bookish

Good day, folks. Welcome back to the blog! I hope your week has been going amazingly, or at the very least, pretty okay. It’s been quite the tiring week for me, and I’m so very ready for the weekend. Even though that means I have a whole bunch of assignments and readings to do. The work never ends y’all.

In other news, I haven’t been regularly on WordPress for a bit, but I have noticed that there have been a bunch of changes in the layout for drafting posts, and my sidebar looks a bit off (the follow by email widget is all wrong, and I’m very sad. I’m hoping it goes back to how it was?). As much as I like some of the updates being done, they seem to be happening all the time now and I’m so ready for them to stop. or maybe it’s because I’m not on the website as often so I don’t notice when they stop…

Anyhow, today Dani and I are sharing the LTB topics for November 2021. Before we get to the topics, if you’re not sure what LTB is:
