Welcome back to The Happy Place 5! I fell off the bandwagon for a bit, but I’m back and determined to join in the 2022 topics more regularly. So, to kick of the (still somewhat) new year, we decided to round up the books we meant to red last year… but didn’t. For me, that’s a few hundred books — 400 to to be precise. These are the books I own and have yet to read. That’s why I thought about books I had planned on last year but woefully left on my TBR pile.
This month’s topic of The Happy Place 5 is fall vibes. We decided to keep things open-ended to give ourselves a breather. I’ve technically taken an eight-month breather, and I’m barely surfacing again on the blogging front. Hah. But autumn is my favourite season. I love the hues of reds fading into yellows. Sadly, I live in the tropics. Instead of pretty colours, I contend with dreary monsoon thunderstorms. So, to cheer myself up, I turned to my bookshelves for my fall vibes picks.
This month’s topic of The Happy Place 5 is new beginnings, particularly first book in series. We’re meant to share upcoming series were excited about but I’ve not been keeping up with new publications. Since I also own dozens of first books in series that I have yet to read, I decided to turn to my bookshelf. I picked out five series that I want to start this year, mostly based on how excited I was when I first acquired these books.
