I’ve been doing this themed TBR for the past couple of years, where I try to read only or mostly black authors in the month of February, and I guess it’s becoming an annual tradition! These books are all on my TBR anyway — some of them have been on there for a very long time — so this is a good chance to prioritize them. There’s ten books on this list, some of them sizeable fantasies, so I highly doubt I’ll be able to read all of them, especially since my reading so far is much slower than it was last year, but at least I’ll have a nice selection to pick from!
I’ve made this post for 2019 and 2020 and I’ve actually made some progress, though it is…slow going (series are LONG okay). Because of that, there’s going to be a lot of repeats here, but some new series I’d like to begin or finish up as well.
I’m also no longer being a stickler about waiting for a series to finish before starting it, because now that I’m doing my own summaries of fantasy installments, I don’t have as much of a problem when it comes to remembering things, since my summaries prioritize everything that I personally want prioritized, or the little details that I, specifically, would be more likely to forget.
The series I am prioritizing tie in to one of my 2020 goals, which is to finish some of the many, many books I own physical copies of, so you’ll notice that most of these series I actually own, which in theory should help me to read them, since they’re, you know, right there.
Okay, so it’s time for my final favorite books post for 2020, my favorite speculative/fantasy reads! I read more fantasy than anything else, so there was a lot to choose from, and I finished a bunch of series this year, so that made this even more difficult. This is my favorite post of the three to make!
Also, we have a tie for the #1 spot because I just…could not decide. Interestingly, the books that tied have some themes in common; they are both tied up in my ethnic heritage, so that’s really interesting!
With September, Spooky Season, otherwise known as THE BEST TIME OF THE YEAR, has officially begun. How am I defining Spooky Season, you ask? Well, I’m pretty flexible about it. For me, Spooky Season begins in September and ends when November does. It’s not just about Halloween for me; it’s more about autumnal vibes, which last past October.
If you couldn’t already tell, this is my absolute FAVORITE time of the year, when I am imbued with energy and am even more obnoxiously upbeat and joyous than usual. The chill in the air, the anticipation of Halloween, spooky vibes, hot chocolate, cider and pumpkin treats, cozy socks and sweaters, crunchy leaves…and creepy, Gothic books! A great time, I tell you!
So here’s 25 books I plan to read within the next three months to make this wonderful time of the year even better!
Emily from BookswithEmilyFox recently posted a video called Weirdest Books I’ve Read about…you guessed it…the weirdest books she’s read. I watched the video and I thought, hey, that’s fun.
Weird, of course, is a matter of taste and opinion; one person’s weird is another person’s pedestrian. But, going off a generic interpretation of weird, I’d say that I don’t read too many weird books! Mainly, this is because weird books are often weird because they don’t make sense, and I really dislike books that are confusing and have no satisfactory explanations. But there are exceptions! To that end, I’ll mostly stick to books I really liked!
