Reading Habits I’m Changing in 2021

Last year was a year of wild, fast reading, and reading goals that went out the window because my mental health and life in general simply didn’t allow them to be. But this year I’m focusing on just reading what I want, fewer goals, and being more relaxed about this hobby. I’ve been trying to change certain bookish and reading habits for a while, but it never worked, until now… Read on to see how my reading habits are already changing in 2021!

10 New Releases I still Want to Read

Hello everyone, how are you doing today? This year’s new releases were on point, finally one aspect of 2020 that didn’t suck! I read the majority of those I wanted, but as I was thinking of all the books I want to read next year and setting up my new reading journal, I realized there were still about 10 of them that were high on my priority list that I just didn’t get to read.

So today I’m sharing with you those 10 hot new releases that I didn’t get a chance to read in 2020 (and some short and mostly accurate summaries by yours truly).

How my reading habits changed in 2020

This year most of us found ourselves at home with plenty of extra free time with no commutes, no leisure trips and so readers began to read more… and I’ve realized my reading habits have changed quite a bit this year.

ARC Review: Home Before Dark by Riley Sager

Goodreads // What was it like? Living in that house. Maggie Holt is used to such questions. Twenty-five years ago, she and her parents, Ewan and Jess, moved into Baneberry Hall, a rambling Victorian estate in the Vermont woods. They spent three weeks there before fleeing in the dead of night, an ordeal Ewan later recounted in a nonfiction book called House of Horrors. His tale of ghostly happenings and encounters with malevolent spirits became a worldwide phenomenon, rivaling The Amityville Horror in popularity—and skepticism.

Today, Maggie is a restorer of old homes and too young to remember any of the events mentioned in her father’s book. But she also doesn’t believe a word of it. Ghosts, after all, don’t exist. When Maggie inherits Baneberry Hall after her father’s death, she returns to renovate the place to prepare it for sale. But her homecoming is anything but warm. People from the past, chronicled in House of Horrors, lurk in the shadows. And locals aren’t thrilled that their small town has been made infamous thanks to Maggie’s father. Even more unnerving is Baneberry Hall itself—a place filled with relics from another era that hint at a history of dark deeds. As Maggie experiences strange occurrences straight out of her father’s book, she starts to believe that what he wrote was more fact than fiction.

Let’s Talk About Bookstagram!

Today I’m here to talk to you about something that is dear to my heart, my bookstagram account. This may seem silly to you but my bookstagram was my first contact with the online bookish community and it led to so many incredibly discoveries both in terms of books and people. I’m very grateful that five years ago I randomly decided to make an account!

Animal Crossings New Horizons Book Tag

This book tag was originally created by Angharad & Becky @ Two Book Thieves.

Today I’m bringing you the Animal Crossing New Horizons Book Tag because I just bought and started playing this AMAZING game a few days ago (so my island still has that original basic look and I can’t wait to be finally be able to design every little detail). I didn’t have any interest in this game before lit everyone start playing and loving it… I guess I just thought it was worth a chance, and I succumbed to the hype a bit – and it’s totally worth it! It’s so relaxing and happy. (I def need to go on a book buying ban though!)

I’m also in a bit of a reading slump because real life BS and stress… I can still read, but I’ve been reading so much less (I read three times total this week so far). I’m currently reading The Farm by Joanne Ramos, Head Over Heels by Hanna Orenstein and Apollyon by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

And like always I am anyone who wants to do this tag 🙂
