May 2017 TBR

As I mentioned in my April Wrap-Up, I did fairly well with my April TBR.  Out of the 8 books I planned on reading, I completed 6 and got about into 20% another.  Not too shabby in my opinion.

I decided that I am going to be taking things easy on the reading front in May.  Writing book reviews got put on the back burner for the past few months, so I am ridiculously behind.  It’s time to bite the bullet and sit down and knock some reviews out.  Therefore my TBR is going to be on the lighter side in terms of number of books & the size of the books I’m planning on reading.

Let’s see what I have on my TBR for May shall we?

April 2017 TBR

Confession time: I didn’t do so well with my March TBR, BUT I have excuses good reasons.  I blame this on the fact that many of the library books I requested for my upcoming book festivals started coming in…  My hands were tied.   Not to mention that one of the SOKY book festival authors, Cinda Chima, canceled and will no longer be attending the festival, so I had to jump ship on the book I planned on reading (The Demon King) to make time for other reads… Nothing personal Cinda Chima, but if you can no longer come to the festival, your book gets put on hold.  These are all legit excuses right?  (The correct response is “right!”)

Anyways!  Since most of my April TBR will be books for my upcoming festivals, I think it’s a pretty safe bet that the majority of these books WILL get read.

Let’s see what’s on the agenda for April shall we?

March 2017 TBR

After slaying my January TBR, I knew it wasn’t likely that I was going to keep up the momentum in February.  I didn’t get to every book on my February TBR, but out of the 6 books on the list, I finished 4, got half way through 1, and didn’t even open the last.  Eh close enough.  I ended up reading 8 books in February, so I did go a little rogue from my original TBR…

February 2017 TBR

Hello bookworms!

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…

January 2017 TBR

Goodbye December, and hello January!

I’m going to keep this month’s TBR fairly short both in number of books and the size of the books I am planning to read.  For the first half of 2017, I am focusing on NetGalley books that were sent to me in 2016 for review that I didn’t get around to reading and reviewing as I should have.  I know, I am horrible.  I am ready to climb out of my NetGalley hole this year and get my act together.  Having a smaller TBR will also help to give me time to play a little catch up on my book reviews.  I have some awesome books to review and cannot wait to share my thoughts with you all!

Let’s see what I will be reading this month, shall we?
