Tackling the TBR [54]: February 2020

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:

February 2020 TBR Tackler Shelf:

Last month I included the new Brian McClellan because I thought I’d be able to finish the second book in time to start it… alas, my library hold expired ::facepalm:: so I’ve taken two strides back lol. I’m especially excited for the new Patricia Briggs. I may not have a chance to get through the entire thing before its release in March, but I’ll give it a go. Abercrombie’s third First Law book is one I didn’t expect to get to anytime soon, but the second one was so good, I don’t want to wait! The only problem is, they’re INCREDIBLY similar to McClellan’s books, so I may have to push one off until next month. I’m looking to reread the first two of the Licanius Trilogy before diving into the final book, so we’ll see if I have time. It’s a short month, and I’m already a week in… wish me luck!

Have a great month in reading!
