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.
June was by far the most successful reading month I have had in 2021. I read every book on my TBR list (yes I am counting the DNF because I read 200 pages of it which was longer than one of the other books) and I read 2 other books not on the list for a total of 14 books. Not gonna lie, I’m impressed with myself. And on top of that there were some really awesome reads like We Are Inevitable, The Pick-Up, The Soulmate Equation, and The Wood Are Always Watching. Hopefully July will come in just as strong.
July is Netgalley heavy. Not sure why but I ended up just wanting to read a lot of new releases (one old) I have been approved for of have downloaded. There is one Edelweiss book and one book that a friend loves so much that I finally had to read it. All in all it is a list I’m excited for. I hope the TBD book ends up being the one I really want it to be, but time will tell. Stay tuned for August to find out.
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?
