Bookly App

My friend and one of my admins for The Introverted Readathoner on Facebook has been using this app called Bookly. I’d heard of it but really never looked into it until I started seeing her screenshots. It looked amazing to me. So I decided to give it a try. They have a free version, but I chose to pay for it. I knew I’d use it every day and the paid version just works for me. I have been using it for the past two days and I really can say this is going to work well for me. When I go to read, I just need to click the book I”m reading and hit start reading. I can choose if I want to track it by audio, percentage, or pages! You can set goals on it and everything. I’ll probably revisit talking about this app every few months. For now, I’d just love to meet other people who use it. I’d love to learn more about it so that I can use it even more efficiently!

Weekly Reading Plans: November 28th

There’s a lot on the list. I don’t plan to finish all of the books. I do plan to make progress in them. I also can’t even start some of the books until I finish others. So there’s that. I’ve already started most of these and I’m really enjoying them.

Ark of the Apocalypse

Floating Underwater

Spells Trouble

The Whispering Women

Ghost Agents

Never Ever Getting Back Together

Blood Union Part One

Malibu Burns

The Urban Boys: Discovery of the Five Senses

I’d love to know what you’re reading this week!

My Reading Stats: June 5th

Lately, I haven’t read as much as I’d like. I’m reading every day still, but just barely on some days. I have still been keeping track. I am hoping that sharing my progress on here will be helpful. We shall see. I will make it from Sunday to Saturday.

Note: Some ebooks I have don’t have page numbers so I measure it by % instead. It gets a little tricky with daily page counting, but it works in the end.


Rise of Riverstone: 401-404
War Storm: 322-391


War Storm: 392-430
Rise of Riverstone: 405-590


Royal Spy: 1%-9%


Royal Spy: 10%-18%


War Storm: 431-538


War Storm: 539-662
Royal Spy: 19%-31%


Royal Spy: 32%-35%

What I hope to read this week:

  1. Royal Spy by Heather Frost
  2. Into the Violet Gardens by Isaac Nasri
  3. Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber
  4. Home Field Advantage by Dahlia Adler
  5. Nightcrawling by Lelie Mottley
  6. The Gate Keeper by James Byrne
  7. Scorpion’s Dance by Jefferson Morley
  8. Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey

I’d like to try to read at least a hundred pages a day, but I know that there will be days I won’t do that. I am going to at least make it a point to read at least a chapter a day. I love my job, but sometimes the back-to-back calls for the entire shift is mentally draining. It makes wanting to read really hard. I’ve found myself watching more television than I have reading when I’m not working. I’m just thankful that I’m not having major anxiety over that anymore!

Tell me about your reading these days!

Readathon Updates!

So this weekend was great! I participated in a Shadow Lounge Readathon! I read a total of 1,039 pages in the span of 32 hours! I call it a major sucess. I also finished four books!

This week I will be participating in the AYearathon readathon. I love week-long ones. Gives you more time to get your goals in. This month’s theam is “Go Green”. It’s basically meant to read ebooks and audiobooks. I’m very excited to do this! I’ve even made plans that will help me with the process.

I’ll have recaps for both readathons when I have more time (for the one already passed) and when the event is over! Anybody else done or doing these???

2022 Reading Goals Recharged

So, earlier this year, I announced some of my goals for this year. Including my reading goals. I’ve been in a weird reading phase. I don’t want to say funk. I’ve had bouts where I devour books and then bouts where I barely read at all. Today, I want to add one that I added recently and revamp my goal so to speak for the year.

My reading goals are:

  1. One BOTM book every month
  2. One nonfiction book every month
  3. One LGBTQIA book every month
  4. One graphic novel every month
  5. One classic novel every month

With the way the first three months went, I’m going to alter this slightly. I’m still going to aim for one a month for each of the above. However, if I have 12 for each category by the end of the year, that’s good enough for me. I re-added graphic novels to my goal and added classic novels.

What are some of your goals for the year?

Weekly Reading Plans: March 28th

One of the biggest goals I have this year is to finally tackle the huge list of books I’ve accumulated over the past year. Especially the books were given to me in exchange for review. I haven’t intended to go so long without reading them. I am just really bad with time management. Hopefully, this year will help me get better with that.

Note: I realize I plan to read a lot of books every week. I’m a mood reader and I account for that by adding extras so if I’m stuck I can move on to another book. I do not think that I will get all of these during the week. There are some that will be prioritized over others for obvious reasons.

Readathons I’m participating in this week:
