Tackling the TBR [41]: January 2019

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:

January 2019 TBR Tackler Shelf:

Omgsh I actually finished all but 2 of last month’s titles and even found time to squeeze in a few extras. This is good. I feel pumped about reading and reviewing again and am planning to start of 2019 with a bang. I’m currently working to zero out my incomplete series challenge before focusing on my overflowing bookshelves challenge (the goal of which is to actually read the books I pay for and bring home… a new concept to me, apparently). Anyway from this month’s lineup I’m most excited to tackle the final Dagger and Coin novel by Daniel Abraham. Surprising considering the series started out so lukewarm. :)

Have a great January!

  1. I’m slowly but surely working towards completing series too but I keep picking up new series. Two steps forward, one step back–or something like that! Looks like you have a great month ahead of you!


  2. I’m reading my first ever Brandon Sanderson right now, Elantris. I’ve heard it’s not his best story but I bought it about 6 years ago when I didn’t want to commit myself to another fantasy series. Wish me luck! LOL. :D I’m seeing Skyward everywhere at the moment so I hope you enjoy.
    I want to read more high fantasy this year because it’s my favourite genre and I somehow never get around to it, so I may be coming to you for some recs soon!
