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.
I didn’t do a TBR for November since I left the month open to all the books I had available on my Netgalley account that had not been read. I ended up reading 9 of those books (the 10th was a book I received from the author that needed to be read for review) and 4 of those 9 got 5 stars and another got 4.5 stars. It is safe to say I picked well from the numerous books I had available.
Now I am back to normal for December and I have once again created a TBR. I must admit though, this may end up being pretty loose. Since I finished my Goodreads reading goal months ago, I have zero pressure this month and I kind of like it. I do know I will be reading A Vow So Bold and Deadly (I actually already started it), There Will Come a Darkness, and First Comes Like. Other than that this list is very subject to change.
What do you do for a monthly TBR? Do you stick to a list or wing it? Are you participating in ARC August?
