Knowing that June is going to be hectic at best, I am making a smaller TBR for the month. Most of the books I am focusing on are continuations of series I am reading, and ironically enough there are a lot of fourth volumes this month. I also slipped in one book I started in May but didn’t get a chance to finish. While my June 2024 TBR is small, I am excited to get to these books and see what each story has in store for me. Should I find extra time to read, I will pick whatever book from my main TBR strikesRead More →

April has come and gone and it was a spectacular reading month. I came into the month expecting to read 10 books from my TBR and managed nearly double that. Though a couple of DNFs also occurred, I am truly surprised by how many books I got through and enjoyed nearly all of them. My April 2024 Reading Wrap-up goes over the many books I read in April and my thoughts on them.

For my May 2024 TBR, I am putting a heavy focus on my neglected ebooks. I have made a lot of progress whittling down my physical TBR, but have not done the same for my ebooks. This is the month that all changes. I am going with a mix of older and newer ebooks. On top of this, I should be getting a few audiobooks through the library to enjoy. As always, my monthly TBR is larger than can likely tackle, but I like to keep my options open and some months I read more than others. The post may contain affiliate links. This meansRead More →

It’s time for another monthly TBR. Picking a stack of books to read during a particular month is always fun. There are still quite a few unread books on my TBR and each month I do my best to get to some books that have been waiting a while along with some newer books. I’m looking forward to getting through April 2024 TBR as there are so many great-sounding books on it.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by That Arty Reader Girl. Each week, we are given a bookish topic to discuss. This week’s theme is Books on my Spring 2024 TBR. I am doing my best to whittle down my large TBR and get to books that have been neglected for years. For my spring TBR, I’m trying to focus heavily on my ebooks and audiobooks, which I tend to ignore more than my physical books. However, a few physical books are also included on this list.

Creating a monthly TBR is always a fun activity. It gives me a chance to pick out as many books I think I can read from my TBR. Inevitably, I usually pick out more books than I think I can read in a single month but I’d rather have too many choices than too few. On top of the books listed, I also plan to get to the books I didn’t have time to read from my January 2024 TBR. My February 2024 TBR is a good mix of genres, new books, and a few rereads thrown in for fun. February 2024 TBR Physical BooksRead More →

Like most of my monthly TBRs of the past, my January 2024 TBR has more books on it than I think I will read. That way, I have plenty of options plus if I have time I will read all of them. Some of these books will help me complete my 24 books to read in 2024, but all will help to reduce my large TBR. The post may contain affiliate links.

Making to-be-read lists comes naturally to readers. We love to make lists of books we want to read just as much as we love buying new books. Sticking to those TBRs and reading the books? That’s a whole different story. However, that doesn’t stop me from making regular TBR. So, when I saw 24 Books To Read In 2024 going around, I knew I had to join in. These books are a mix of ones that have been waiting on my TBR for years to be read, along with some newer releases. We’ll see in a year if I read all of these books orRead More →

It has been five years since I decided to focus on reading all of the books on my physical TBR. It’s so easy to be pulled away from books on the shelf in favor of those shiny newly published books. I do continue to buy new books and often do read them first. However, I feel like I have done a good job of whittling down my large TBR into something more manageable. Each month I read several books and do my best to limit the number of new books coming in. It’s time for my TBR update: year five to see just how muchRead More →

tackle your TBR pile

As a book lover, the allure of a new book is always strong. It is nearly impossible to walk past a bookstore and not pop in. It’s even harder to leave that same bookstore without a new book or two. The satisfaction of placing books on a shelf, adding them to our to-be-read (TBR) list, and talking about books with other bookish people. But when it comes to reading our TBR, it’s not always easy. Which brings in a whole new set of problems. So, how do you tackle your TBR? How to tackle your TBR when it’s overwhelming Set monthly reading goals What betterRead More →
