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 so I’m sticking with it in 2020.
Another month done, another month at home thanks to the pandemic. The one plus about being home and not being able to do anything is that I’m getting a lot of reading done. Sure I’m still working but on weekends and before and after work I have all my books to keep me company. I did have to add one book to my April TBR because it is releasing on May and I’m on the ARC team, but other than that I did amazing on my TBR and I’m very happy.
My May TBR list was hard to craft. There are a lot of books that I’m excited for so I had a hard time narrowing down. I ended up doing a mix of books from my April TBR list that I didn’t read, new releases, Netgalley Bingo picks, and a couple that were recommended. I know I will be adding another book because I am on another ARC team, but I’m going to leave my list as is since I don’t have the book yet.
What do you do for a monthly TBR? Do you stick to a list or wing it? Share in the comments.
