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 2019 TBR Tackler Shelf:
This month I’m doing away with my reserve list altogether. While analyzing my reading stats for the year, I realized my average completion rate per month is only four books… which means my priorities list is more than sufficient. For a change I’m setting smaller goals. :) I’m really excited for this lineup. It has been about a year since I last indulged in starting so many new series at once, and I think the novelty (pun) will help my completion rate.
These challenges are always more fun with friends <3. Here’s a link to my friend Chanzie’s blog, where she adapted the challenge to fit her TBR needs:
Have a great month in reading!
