What started as an experiment on finding a reading system that works for me has turned into me once again falling in love with a TBR List. For 8 months in 2019 I created a TBR List and read books off of those lists. Some months I was successful and didn’t deviate and some months I had to add books or take books away. All in all though I really enjoyed having a structured list to go off of.
I admit I struggled not doing a list in December. I didn’t like having free reign of my TBR that has over 650 books on it. I was overwhelmed by the options and actually ended up reading a book I had never heard about. I can’t put myself through that again so back to the TBR list it is. New year, fresh start.
Here are my planned January reads:
For 2020 I am going to try to read one book I wish I read in 2019, one book that is a back list book, and one book for my personal Netgalley Challenge (more to come on that). Could there be overlap with a back list book and a Netgalley book, sure, but I’m going to do my best to make sure there isn’t.
What do you do for a monthly TBR? Do you stick to a list or wing it? Share in the comments.
