While we're approaching one of the biggest holidays in the United States, reports of COVID are also on the rise. For most of us, that means we're staying home, staying six feet apart, and celebrating a family holiday without the family. Perhaps this is a good thing since your family voted for the other guy [...]
Happy middle of November! I can't believe that we're already in the middle of November, which means Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Do you celebrate Thanksgiving? What are you doing this year? I'm already thinking about ours and planning a super low key Thanksgiving with me and my husband. Instead of the traditional meal, [...]
Recently (and I'm sure you've heard this from me a few times let alone our entire universe), I've been struggling with reading.

Today I'm sharing a new feature to my blog: Patreon Picks. Every couple of weeks, I'll be asking my patrons on Patreon what blog post they would like to see. I shared a few different suggestions and they all voted. And the votes are in. This week's Patreon Picks is a look at how I pick my monthly TBR. I just recently shared my TBR for September too, but excited to get into the details on how I decide which out of the dozens of books I want to read. If you liked this post and would love to participate in Patreon Picks, head over to my Patreon page and join the Simone and Her Books community!
