Hugs’n’Kisses OR Dismissed by the Missus/Messrs

Hey there, my lovelies!

The last time I did this was about two months ago and since I’m currently reading the book I decided to „hug and read“ I figured it would be time to go for another round. I’m not doing this meme as often as I’d like to but I guess I can do it at least once every two months. That way I’ll still be able to reduce my TBR and feel no pressure to do so. This said: Let’s go for it! =)

The rules:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 295, so for instance I’ll pick 43, 164 and 214)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (43 – For a Few Demons More, 164 – Not Your Sidekick, 214 – Kushiel’s Dart)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Kushiel’s Dart: I’ve owned this book for about 2 years and I didn’t read it because I held out hope that my friend would buddy read it with me. After two years the chances we’ll actually read this are super slim though so I decided to just go for it. It’s time to move on and to finally read this!)

One to kiss and keep, (For a Few Demons More: This is book 5 in a series and I’m pretty certain I’ll continue to read it once my library opens up again and I get my hands on an English copy. *lol*)

One to dismiss and weep! (Not Your Sidekick: I’d usually be the first one to jump at the opportunity to read a LGBTQ+ book, but a lot of my GR friends didn’t really enjoy this and the ratings are pretty low. For now I’ll dismiss it and weep. I might come back to it one day though. Never say never.)

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

Rankenzeile

So I’m currently at 295 books and still far away from my goal of 275. I know I’ll get there one day though! I’m determined to reduce my TBR even though publishers and authors make it really hard to fight against the flood. *lol* If I can make it under 290 this year I’ll definitely count it as a win. XD

Hey there, my lovelies!

It’s been ages I last did this! In fact it’s been so long I needed to blow away the dust that settled on my blog meme! *lol* There! Better! XD I really should do this more often in 2021 and maybe I’ll even make a new logo. On the one hand it’s funny to see my old logos and creations because it shows how far I’ve come as a blogger, but on the other hand I can’t help but cringe whenever I see them. And this one is certainly no exception to the rule. Haha! Anyway, let’s do this! =)

The rules:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 295, so for instance I’ll pick 74, 138 and 252)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (74 – Mind Games, 138 – The Darkest Night, 252– Broken Throne)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Broken Throne: This is a book that isn’t only on My Book List 2020 but also one I already own so this is perfect! 😀 )

One to kiss and keep, (The Darkes Night: This sounds like one of those books I might read when I crave for something fast that has a couple that can’t keep their hands from each other. *lol* So I’ll just keep it for now. You never know when THAT kind of mood hits you. ;-P )

One to dismiss and weep! (Mind Games: Hmm I can’t help but wonder why I added this to my list. Sure it’s paranormal and urban fantasy which I like every once in a while, but the plot really doesn’t capture my interest. Why did 2017-me add this to my TBR? *lol*)

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

Rankenzeile

I still didn’t reach my goal of 275 books but hey at least I’m at 293 now! *lol* With all the amazing books that are constantly hitting the stores it’s really tough to keep your TBR in check and considering it all I think I’m doing a good job. I was already at 306 once so as long as I’m slowly but surely approaching a number under 290 I’m good. XD

Hey there, my lovelies!

The last book I read („Radiance“) was a really nice surprise so I thought I’d go for the next round! 😛 I still feel like I’m not doing this often enough but I’m getting there. Especially because my TBR is growing again and I really, really need to reduce it. *lol* The struggle is real my friends!!! >_<

The rules:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 292, so for instance I’ll pick 29, 105 and 241)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (29 – Snow Like Ashes, 105 – Gold, 241– Dangerous Girls)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Dangerous Girls: I’ve been curious about this one for quite a while and since my Gansey loved it I’m pretty sure I’ll enjoy this too!)

One to kiss and keep, (Snow Like Ashes: I’m not ready to read this young adult fantasy book so I’ll just kiss and keep it. XD)

One to dismiss and weep! (Gold: This paranormal fantasy romance doesn’t sound bad but I’m just not in the right mood to read it right now. Maybe one day it will find its way back on my TBR for now I’ve to say „goodbye“ though. 😉 )

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

Rankenzeile

By now it feels like I’m delusional with my hope to reduce my TBR to 375 books. *lol* But I’ll still try my best! XD After this round it are 392 once again. T_T But I just can’t help it! There are just too many great books hitting the shelves soon and of course they all end up on my TBR. It’s one step forward and two steps back. *lol*

Hey there, my lovelies!

Gee! I really should do those more often. >_< But then again I only do them when I started to read the book of the last one and this time around it took me ages to get to it. *lol*  What can I say? All those library books I borrowed got in the way. At the moment my library is closed though so I figured I could squeeze in a new book from my meme! This said let’s start with the fun! 😉

The rules:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 293, so for instance I’ll pick 61, 138 and 217)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (61 – Broken Ink, 138 – Brooding YA Hero, 217– Radiance)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Radiance: This is perfect! „Radiance“ is on My Book List 2020 so I had to hug and read this! XD)

One to kiss and keep, (Broken Ink: I’m still intrigued by the idea of this and I’m so going to pick this up once I need a dark m/m book.)

One to dismiss and weep! (Brooding YA Hero: This has been on my TBR for ages and I don’t think I’ll read this anytime soon. The ratings I saw weren’t all that amazing as well so I’ll just dismiss it. If fate truly wants me to read this it will land on my feed again. *lol*)

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

Rankenzeile

Sooo since I’ve been pretty sloppy with this meme and added way too many books to my TBR (that’s what being cooped up at home will do to you *lol*) there are still 291 books on my list. My goal is still to get it down to 275 by the end of this year so I better try to be consistent in future! I’ve no doubt that I’ll read „Radiance“ in no time though. 😛

Hey there, my lovelies!

Wow, the last time I did one of those was in November! Boy was this long ago! XD In my defence: Before Christmas I was very busy and I guess the holidays as well as the aftermath of them kept me pretty occupied too. *lol* So here I am, doing my first blog meme after two months. (How time flies by! XD)

The rules:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 287, so for instance I’ll pick 55, 108 and 224)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (55 – Traitor’s Blade, 108 – Frostblood, 224 – Ham on Rye)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Traitor’s Blade: This sounds really intriguing and to think I didn’t even know this was on my TBR. *lol* Sometimes even I am surprised about what I find on it. XD )

One to kiss and keep, (Frostblood: There was a time this was all over my feed so I’m still curious about it and it stays! ;-P)

One to dismiss and weep! (Ham on Rye: This might be a pretty interesting read but honestly atm I don’t see myself reading this all too soon. So yeah for now it’s dismissed from my list.)

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

Rankenzeile

There are still 288 books left on my TBR list but since I added a few lately it’s no surprise that it didn’t get less. If anything it’s a surprise it didn’t get more! *lol* 😉 I’m still aiming to get it down to 275 and I’m confident I’ll reach that goal this year! This said: Let’s see if the „Traitor’s Blade“ is as good as it seems to be! XD

Hey there, my lovelies!

It’s been a while I last did my blog meme, mostly because it took me so long to read „The Poppy War“! *lol* But I’m done with the book now and I’m more than just ready for a new challenge! So without further ado, let’s do this! 😀

The rules:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 291, so for instance I’ll pick 30, 155 and 212)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (30 – Stealing the Wind, 155 – The Darkest Night, 212 – Queer Magick)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Stealing the Wind: I wanted to read this for ages. I mean an m/m mermen fantasy story! Guilty pleasure wins! Sorry! *lol* 😛 )

One to kiss and keep, (Queer Magick: And here’s another guilty pleasure read. Not going to scratch that one from my list either. XD)

One to dismiss and weep! (The Darkest Night: A paranormal fantasy romance. Sounds very tropey and right now I’m just not in the mood for it. I’ll keep it in the back of my mind though. You know, just for future reference. 😛 )

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

Rankenzeile

So even though apparently no one else is doing my blog meme except of well, „moi“, I’m still happy with it! *lol* I mean the numbers speak for themselves! Before I started with this there were about 304 books on my TBR and now I’m down to 288! And this even though I constantly add new books to it! ❤ For me that’s an achievement and I’m glad I found my own way to reduce my TBR. Maybe one of these days someone else will give it a shot as well. You never know. 😛

Ha! I’m still not done with the last book I chose when I did my blog meme but considering that it’s „The Poppy War“ I think we can agree that this is okay. I mean this book is HUGE!!! 544 pages isn’t something you read that fast, especially if you’re like me and read 5 books at the same time. *lol*

Anyway! Let’s move on and do this! XD

The rules:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 294, so for instance I’ll pick 59, 167 and 253)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (59 – Strong Signal, 167 – Scarred, 253 – Essenz der Götter I)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Essenz der Götter I: Okay, it’s been ages I last read a German book but this author is from Lower Austria, writes fantasy books and is still pretty unknown. So in short: I’m curious and new authors need all the support they can get. Especially Austrian ones, because, yeah we’re a little country! *lol* )

One to kiss and keep, (Scarred: This sounds too serious for me right now so I’ll just keep it for another time when I’m more ready to tackle a topic like that!)

One to dismiss and weep! (Strong Signal: This book made it easy to dismiss it. I’d love to read this m/m romance but I can’t get it in my country so yeah, there’s that. 😦 I might as well delete it from my list if I can’t buy it. *sniff*)

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

Rankenzeile

And here comes the moment where I mention that I’m very happy with this blog meme!! When I started with it in January this year there were 303 books on my TBR and I thought I’d never be able to read them all. Almost nine months later my TBR is reduced to 289 books and I feel like I got this!!! *lol* I GOT THIS!!! Yesh! *does a happy dance*

Well, erm, yeah! Back to the post! XD

So what about you? Did you try my blog meme? Did it work out for you or didn’t it make any difference at all? Tell me and let me know! 😉

Another month has passed and it’s once again time for my blog meme! (Probably more than ever because I’ve been a very bad girl and added way too many books to my TBR! I blame it all on my amazing fellow bloggers. 😛 )

So without further ado, let’s do this! *lol*

The rules:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 294, so for instance I’ll pick 73, 181 and 267)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (73 – King, 181 – The Invisible Life of Addie La Rue, 267 – The Poppy War)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (The Poppy War: This is number 8 on My Book List 2019 so I’d be damned if I wouldn’t use the chance to read it now! 😛 )

One to kiss and keep, (The Invisible Life of Addie La Rue: Three good reasons to keep it in my list: 1.) It’s not out yet! 2.) It’s V.E. Schwab!!! 3.) A love story between a girl and the devil?? How could I say no to this???)

One to dismiss and weep! (King: This seems to be a dark romance and I might keep it in the back of my mind and actually read it one day. For now I’ll scratch it from my list though.)

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

One to kiss and keep, (Untitled Novella ACOTAR #3.2: I still hope that Lucien will get more page time so I can’t dismiss it until I know more about it’s story line! ❤ )

One to dismiss and weep! (Article Three: About a year ago I would have loved to read this but right now I just can’t bring myself to go for another dystopian series. The rebel girl that destroys the system… Been there, done that, got the freaking t-shirt. *lol*)

I could cry over the fact that the number of my TBR list grew again but in fact I’m happy that I’m actually going through with my blog meme. I’m sure it would have grown even more if I wouldn’t do this monthly so yeah, there’s that. *lol*

Good afternoon, my lovelies!

The last time I did this, I decided to hug and read „One of Us is Lying“ and even though I didn’t finish it yet, I can already tell that it’ll most likely be a three paws read or even more for me. Well, that is if the ending doesn’t destroy my current enjoyment. *lol* But I guess I’ll just have to wait and see what is going to happen next. XD

This said, I’m going right into my next round of „Hugs’n’Kisses OR Dismissed by the Missus/Messrs“:

1.) Link back to the original post @ The Sassy Library Fox (I really want to know if it works out for you and I’m curious about your book choices! ;-))

2.) Choose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it are 3 random numbers from 1 – 297, so for instance I’ll pick 55, 144 and 238)

3.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (55 – Hunted, 144 – Break Even, 238 – Wintersong)

4.)  Then you follow the rhyme:

One to hug and read, (Wintersong: This hasn’t only been on my shelf ever since Annie recommended it to me but is also on My Book List 2019 so it’s about time I finally read it! XD)

One to kiss and keep, (Hunted: There’s no way I’m going to miss out on book 6 of „The Iron Druid Chronicles“! I love Atticus and Oberon! ❤ )

One to dismiss and weep! (Break Even: I think this sounds rather intriguing but I’m no huge fan of contemporary romances and „Break Even“ is one of them. *lol* Maybe one day in the far far away future when I stumble upon it again…)

5.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)

Sometimes my blog meme or my Bookie Jar actually force me to read the books I put on my reading list and tell you what? I’m thankful for it! *lol*

It really helps me to keep to my reading schedule… well at least a little bit. XD Plus this blog meme works so perfectly for me! I already managed to reduce my TBR so much and I hope it will help others to reduce theirs too! 😀
