Hello Readers! I hope you all well and first half of the year was amazing for you. I don’t do tags or memes anymore but Mid-Year Freak Out Tag has always been fun and it also gives a reason to do Mid-Year Wrap Up. So here is my 2023 Mid-Year Freak Out Tag and how 2023 in books has been so far –
Books Read – 46
Pages Read – 14827
This year Goodreads was acting weirdly. Sometimes even after marking the book ‘read’ it wouldn’t appear in my read list but will count the book for the challenge, sometimes even though I read the book once and I didn’t select ‘read’ the second time it would show I read it twice and will count it for the challenge. So there is already a problem with counts as my Excel sheet is showing me 46 books. But even with 46, I’m way ahead of the challenge. I might change the challenge to 80 later.

What books do you really need to read by the end of this year?
My TBR is too big! I wish to read all backlist books and have the required 80% NetGalley ratio back but that is simply not possible unless I stop downloading NetGalley books for one whole year. But still, these are few books I’m sure going to read no matter what –
