Tackling the TBR [40]: November 2018

tackling the TBR

It’s once again time for my favorite feature: Tackling the TBR! There’s nothing I love more than picking out which books to read next, and this slightly organized method of reading has really amped my enjoyment to the next level. Bring on the mantras!

Read the best books first.
&
Life is too short to read books you’re not enjoying.

However you put together your TBR for the next month, the goal is to reduce the amount of obligation in reading and increase the fun.


Here’s a look at how the system works:

1. Identify the titles that take top priority in your TBR.
2. Combine them all in your own Tackling the TBR post.
3. Throughout the month pick from that pile as the mood strikes you.

Here’s what mine looks like:

November 2018 TBR Tackler Shelf:

October was an odd month. I made progress on a bunch of books, but I only actually finished 3 of them (very shy of my usual 7 to 10). I had a lot of personal things going on, and couldn’t really find time to read (or mental capacity to concentrate when I did). So maybe now that things have settled a bit, I can get my groove back. The first 4 books are review obligations, the rest are either buddy reads with FBR or books I’ve been trying to get through for a while (I’ve resolved to clear GotM off my list come hell or high water this month… dammit.). The book I’m most excited for is Skyward. :)


Have a great November!

  1. Hi Niki!
    I know what you mean! Strange that I was so busy in October too…it’s not even summer anymore! I’ve been slacking on my reading too, especially since I’m doing the National Novel Writing challenge this month.
    Good luck with your list!
