Saturday Smalls | 3rd August 2019 | Appropriative Magic, Fascinating Algorithms, & a Kick-Ass Latina

I’ve been eyeing up Destiny’s brilliant Saturday Smalls feature for a while now but didn’t get round to introducing it on my blog until now given all of my unintended hiatus’ these past few months. Now seems the perfect time to pick it up though as I have so many books I’ve read that I never got round to reviewing so I’m hoping that Saturday Small can help me to catch up.

Each feature will include a handful of mini-reviews for books that I’ve read but didn’t get a chance to review at the time and once I catch up, I will then use it to review books I don’t feel I can commit to doing a full review for. A huge thank you to the lovely Destiny for letting me adopt Saturday Smalls.

This week’s mini-review round-up includes:

  1. YA historical fiction/magical realism/horror novel
  2. Adult non-fiction book
  3. YA contemporary novel

Down the TBR Hole was originally created by Lia @ Lost in a Story

Welcome to the first of my Down the TBR Hole deadline reviews!

Although this is not a feature of the original Down the TBR Hole, I know that I would likely continue to let these books sit on my TBR shelf unless I gave myself a motivation to read them. By assigning deadlines, it was my hope that I would be giving myself an incentive to hurry up and read the books or else force myself to discard them from my TBR – holding me accountable for my keeps and motivating me to read!

Let’s see how I did for my Round One – March Deadline books:

March TBR | The Month of the ARCs (again)

March TBR | The Month of the ARCs (again)

Hey panda pops!

February turned out to be an absolutely terrible reading month for me with only 2 books read and I have a lot of new release ARCs that I need to read for this month so I am praying that March turns out to be a much better reading month for me. I’ve already managed to finish one ARC – You Asked for Perfect by Laura Silverman – which I absolutely adored and I’m onto my second ARC so fingers crossed the rest of the month goes as smoothly.
