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.
New year, same story. Back with another TBR List for your viewing pleasure. My plan is to have 12 books on my list, at least one a Wild Card, every month. This way I will have options and can switch it up. As always I’m okay if I read off my list, but the goal is to try not to. Anyway, here is the next TBR list for 2021.
May was a successful reading month. Did I 100% stick to my TBR list? Nope. But I 100% read 11 books so I’ll take it. As you can see I got access to some new books (The Heart Principle and Hang the Moon) and I was influenced to read Counting Down with You so the list did in-fact change, but I regret nothing because those 3 books were my 5 star reads in May. And my reread of I’ll Meet You There is ALWAYS a favorite moment of mine in my reading.
For June I have a lot of recent releases or ARCs that I plan to read. I’m actually really excited for this list. I plan to read The Pick-Up by Miranda Kenneally first in June because Miranda writes the best stuff that just makes me happy. Other than that there is no guarantee this list will be exactly the same come July (I have 9 Netgalley requests and 1 at Edelweiss) but we shall see.
Here is my monthly summary in a picture form:
Are you excited for any of these?
What do you do for a monthly TBR? Do you stick to a list or wing it? Have you read any of these?
