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 2021.
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.
July was a pretty good reading month. I didn’t get to everything on my list and I did one switch out, but the books I read were really enjoyable or completely fantastic so I call it a win. My surprise favorite read of the month was You & Me at the End of the World. It completely blew me away in the best possible of ways. I honestly felt like I have never read anything like it and think everyone needs to check it out. Also make sure Defy the Night is on your radar. It was Brigid Kemmerer’s best work yet!
Now on to my favorite reading month:
I love August. It is my birthday month and it is the time I can read all the ARCS…or at least pretend I am going to. HAHA. But anyway, it is ARC August and that means I make a list of ARCs I think I will read but also know that I can read any ARC I have available. It is one of the few months that my TBR list is more of a guideline than my actual list. With that said I am excited for the books I think I will read.
Here is my monthly summary in a picture form:
What do you do for a monthly TBR? Do you stick to a list or wing it? Are you participating in ARC August?
