I don’t know about anyone else, but I love making my monthly TBRs. I am a very schedule oriented person, so figuring out which books I will read at the beginning of each month really helps me keep on track with my reading goals. It also takes out all the uncertainty of what I will read next. For me, there is nothing worse then standing in front of my bookshelves and trying to figure out what to pick up. I *typically* read around 8 books a month, so I generally keep my TBR lists around 5-6 books so I can have some wiggle room to squeeze in some mood reading. It works for me.
This month I am excited to start adding books to my TBR for a book festival that I am attending in April. More details down below…
» The German Girl by Armando Lucas Correa
» The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis
SOKY Book Fest TBR:
» A Sparrow in Terezin by Kristy Cambron
» Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
» State of Wonder by Ann Patchett
I will be attending the SOKY Book Fest that takes place in Bowling Green KY on Friday April 21st – Saturday 22nd. In order to prepare for this event, I will be adding books by confirmed authors to my monthly TBRs until the event. Some of the confirmed authors (so far) include…
*Book titles link to Goodreads & author names link to their website
• R.L. Stine → Goosebumps books
• Lauren Tarshis → I Survived books
• Cinda Chima → Seven Realms series
• Kristy Cambron → The Butterfly and the Violin (Hidden Masterpiece series)
And many more!
» A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab
V.E. Schwab will be coming to the Joseph-Beth book store in Crestview Hills KY on March 4th to promote the 3rd book in her Shades of Magic series, A Conjuring of Light. This store is about 1.5 hours away from where I live in Ohio, but I will gladly drive it to see V.E. Schwab! This was the motivation I needed to finally get around to reading A Gathering of Shadows.
