What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall. I am enjoying it so much. I am actually almost done with it and hoping to finally finish it today. Review to come. 🙂
What’s your favorite can’t-leave-the-house activity?
I should say reading, right? Sadly, that hasn’t been my favorite can’t-leave-the-house activity lately. I really wish that it was, but I am just not reading that much while stuck at home. I can’t seem to focus for very long on books and find myself doing other things. Right now, my favorite activity would have to be playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons. I’ve also been watching RuPaul’s Drag Race, and within 2.5 months I watched 12 seasons! I can’t believe I watched that many seasons in such a short time. It’s such a great show though and I’m having a lot of fun watching it. I guess you can see part of why I haven’t been reading much.
A book you’ve been meaning to read forever?
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth
I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Can I say all the books on my bookshelves? 😛 There’s seriously so many books that I’ve been meaning to read forever and just never got around to it. I guess these would be my top three that I’ve been meaning to read.
An intimidating book on your TBR?
I think it will forever be Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve been wanting to read this for a while, but the page count terrifies me LOL. I started watching the series and I really like it though, so maybe it’ll give me the push to actually start it?
Top 3 priority books on your TBR?
More Than This by Patrick Ness
Solitaire by Alice Oseman
The Toll by Neal Shusterman
I should focus on my ARCs and I will, but non-ARC related priority books would have to be these three. I want to finally read these three books before the end of the year. I started More Than This, but couldn’t get into it so I put it down. I want to give it a second chance. Solitaire I’ve been really wanting to read for a while now since I love Heartstopper. And I really want to finish the Arc of Scythe trilogy because I love it so much.
Recommend a short book.
I will forever recommend reading The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. It’s such an amazing story for being just under 200 pages! I reread it all the time.
Recommend a long book.
Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky. I loved this book so much. Here is part of my mini review that I wrote about it last year.
“I am not entirely sure how to start this review or how great this review will end up being, because I have no idea what I even read. I say that in the best way possible though, because Imaginary Friend was INSANE, but so good! It was crazy and it kept me on the edge of my seat on every 700+ page! It was weird and it was creepy. I had dreams about this book multiple times throughout reading it. I had no idea what was happening or what the outcome would be and it drove me crazy, haha. I was trying to figure out what was going to happen next and I just couldn’t. I was constantly surprised and hit with so many feels. I shed a lot of tears while reading this story as well as every other feeling you can imagine.”
Something you’d love to do while stuck at home.
Last year we bought a house and I would love to finally buy paint and repaint the inside of the house. We painted three of the bedrooms, but I would love to finally paint all the other rooms in the house, and maybe do some other house projects.
What do you plan on reading next?
Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender
Strung Out by Erin Khar
Beach Read by Emily Henry
I’m not really sure what I will read next, because there is so many books that I want to read but I’m also in this major reading slump as well, so it’s kind of hard to get into anything. I think I may go with one of these three books as my next read. Have your read any of these? If so, which one should I read first?
As for tagging, I tag everyone that hasn’t done this tag yet and feel free to link me to your post, so that I can check out your answers! 😀
I know I haven’t been the best blogger this year and I really hope that changes soon. I just haven’t really felt in the mood to read or blog as much. I do get on to read your posts at least once a week though. Last month you guys may have seen that I only read one book and so far this month it is looking about the same. So far, I’ve only read one book (hopefully finishing it today) and I listened to one audiobook. I don’t know why, but my head just isn’t there lately. I don’t even sleep at night anymore, which sucks. There will be some days where I don’t even go to sleep until 5am and most days it’s 3-4am. Most days I get like three or four hours of sleep a night/morning. I’m just all over the place in my head, I guess. Sigh.
Anyway, that’s all for this post! I hope you had fun reading my answers. I will get back on to blog hop later tonight. I have mountains of laundry to do and laundry is NOT fun. I will leave you with a picture of the sunset in my backyard from the other day.
In case you missed it;
Release Day|| July Releases.
Wrap Up|| June.
Book Haul|| June.
I hope you have a great day!

There are soooo many books I want to read but then never get around to reading them, Lol. I think it will be our constant problem. 😀
All of the books you mentioned are also on my TBR *facepalm*. I’m not so sure about the Outlander anymore though, I feel like I can’t commit to another lengthy series without finishing some other first. Me and series have a very complicated relationship… 😀
I received Imaginary Friend for my bday this year, and hope to get to it soon (just like all other books on my shelves 😀 )
You needed to read Beach Read! It reads so quickly and it’s phenomenal, one of the best books I read this year.
Omg yes, I think this will be our constant problem too haha. 😛 I get so excited for a book, buy it, put it on my shelf, a new book comes out that I really want and forget about the previous one. Sigh.
You and my both with having a complicated relationship with finishing series. I am so bad with this! I have so many that I really need to finish, which is why over the last 2-3 years I’ve been reading more standalone books instead because of all the guilt LOL. If I can, I may try to get copies of the audiobooks for the Outlander series instead, so then I don’t feel so intimidated with the length of the books and can also read other books too.
I really hope you love Imaginary Friend as much as I did. It was such a great story. Hopefully I an start Beach Read soon. If I don’t get around to reading it this month, then I definitely will be next month as I couldn’t help myself and bought a copy of the book lol. Happy to see that you loved it!
Oh no that does sound terrible… I hope you will be able to sleep more soon! Also, there are so many things I want to say about the books you mentioned that I don’t even know where to start haha. I enjoyed I’ll Give You The Sun and the other two I’ve been meaning to read for ages too. And I’ve put off Outlander for so long due to its length, although it is totally worth reading and I really enjoyed it in the end. I want to read More Than This soon too and I’m hoping to pick up Beach Read too… xx
Thanks! I’ve been trying to go to sleep a little earlier each day this week, so far it’s still kind of late being 2am…but at least it’s not 4 or 5am like before? Haha. I may just try to get copies of the audiobooks for Outlander and maybe that’ll be better than being intimidated by the length of the books reading it myself haha. Hopefully we both can read More Than This and Beach Read soon. 🙂
Oh that’s at least something! And I can’t imagine how long the audio for Outlander would be like… Longer than 20 hours I guess if a shorter book is already 10? xD
The Young Elites is incredible. Very much worth the read. I’ve got Carve the Mark and I’ll Give You the Sun waiting on my shelves too…:)
So happy to see that you think The Young Elites is incredible! I really need to give the series a chance like ASAP. I own the first two books, so there should be no excuses haha. I hope we both enjoy Carve the Mark and I’ll Give You the Sun when we get the chance to read them. 🙂
The Rose Society (and the third book too) is amazing too 🙂
I don’t get the whole Animal Crossing thing, but I think that’s because I never get to play it. My 12 year old hogs it. LOL
Lol, yeah may be because your daughter hogs the game from you haha. It’s so fun though! You’ll have to play when she’s sleeping.

Ahh the young elites! I really need to go on with this series, I really enjoyed the first book. I’d be so curious to hear your thoughts on it 🥰 and I hope you can read Solitaire soon!
I’m sorry to hear you’ve been so over the place lately, Ashley, I’m always here for you if you need to talk or anything, and blog and read at your own rhythm and when it makes you the happiest, it’s all that matters always ❤
I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed The Young Elites. Hopefully you can continue on with the rest of the series soon. I definitely want to try to read it before the year ends. Fingers crossed! I really to try to read Solitaire ASAP. Thank you so much, Marie! ❤
This is the perfect tag for these times. I will have to pick up Imaginary Friend. It sounds so interesting.
I hope you get the chance to read Imaginary Friend soon. I thought it was such a great book.

Carve the mark is so good! I hope you like it as much as I did!
Hopefully I will finally read it this year! Glad to hear that you liked it.
