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.
September was a weird reading month. I read 12 books which made me reach my goal of 100 read for 2021, but I also didn’t read everything on my list. I had a plan to make I’ll Meet You There (my second read of 2021) my 100th book and me TBD for the month, but then I was approved for Trish Doller’s book, The Suite Spot, and plans changed. For the most part I did read my list with just a few changes so I’ll take it.
My first draft of this list was a bunch of holiday books and then the rest all TBD books. I reached my goal so there was no real urgency to have books picked out. But as I started to do my list I found a few more books I wanted to read in October so the TBD (minus one) have been removed. Will I stick to the list? Who knows. Anything can happen, especially if I get approved for some of the books I have requests in for. Stay tuned to find out!
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?
