Shon's 2021 Reading and Blogging Goals


Happy Monday Bookworms! I hope you’re all doing well.

Ah, it’s that time of year again – to discuss my goals for the year. I think this will be a pretty short post because things are simple this time around since I’m trying to stick to mood reading for most of the year and my blogging will follow suit.

Goodreads Challenge – 115 Books.

Continue to read sequels / work on finishing off series I’ve started. This is a goal of mine every year. Because I start so many new series each year it feels like this will always be a reoccurring goal.

No more monthly TBR’s. I’m just going to read what I feel like reading.

Sparse Book Buying. Last year, because of the craziness of 2020, I purchased a lot of books that I have yet to read. This year, I am going to be very selective about the books I will be purchasing for my physical collection. I have little room left on my shelves for new books, and want to fill the remaining space up with only books that I will be reading immediately and will most likely enjoy.

Those are all of the reading goals I have made for myself to complete this year! I’m trying not to stress myself out over blogging and reading this year.

Do you have any goals this year? Leave a comments, I’d love to chat!

Can't-Wait Wednesday / Waiting on Wednesday #126


Title:
 Face Offs & Cheap Shots (CU Hockey #2)
Author: Eden Finley, Saxon James
Expected Publication: October 5th 2020
Genres: M M Romance

JACOBS

For the last three years, I’ve lived and breathed hockey with one goal: team captain.
There’s only one thing standing in my way. TJ Beckett.
Beck is irresponsible and immature, and I’ve hated him since the moment we met freshman year.
Yet, the coaches see something in him I obviously can’t, and they refuse to choose between us. The captain spot is going to a team vote, and the team thinks that what we need are a bunch of challenges to prove our worth. Challenges that have nothing to do with hockey. Challenges that are throwing me and Beck together.
And he’s still as infuriating as ever.


BECK

I have no idea why Christopher Jacobs hates me, and I can’t say I care. I like pushing his buttons, but the guy needs to loosen up. I’m going to win these stupid challenges easily and spend my senior year as hockey king on this campus. Tormenting Jacobs at the same time will just be a bonus.
Even if I’m getting confusing feelings toward him, I won’t let it hold me back.
When it comes to competing, I’m all in, and nothing will get between me and the W.

Can't-Wait Wednesday / Waiting on Wednesday #125


Title:
 The Sex Coach
Author: Garrett Leigh
Expected Publication: October 1st 2020
Genres: M M Romance

The teacher and the student. The stable hand and the single dad. First times and friendship turn to love.

Toby
There’s nothing attractive about a twenty-four year old virgin, especially not one who blushes every time a hot dude looks his way. But I can’t help the heat that ripples through me every time I see Cole Maguire. And the clench of my heart when I realise how unhappy he is. He’s a city boy with a baby on his hip—we have nothing in common—but if he can teach me how to own my sexuality, perhaps I can teach him he’s worth loving.

Cole
I don’t like horses. But I love my daughter, and there’s nothing I won’t do for her, including leaving the city for life on a farm. I’m ready for that, but I’m not ready for blushing stable hands who make my heart race and my blood run hot. Toby has no idea how beautiful he is. I can teach him that, if he can handle the heat, but after one night with him…damn.

Maybe it’s me that has a lot to learn.
