Tackling the TBR [52]: December 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:

December 2019 TBR Tackler Shelf:

I had SO MUCH FUN reading last month. I finished a bunch of books and haven’t even paused to review any of them (clearly). This month I’m carrying over current WIPs and adding a few fun novels in between. I’ve read Blade Itself already, but I’m doing a reread with a friend to continue the series. I don’t want to overload myself with too much of a good thing, but I’ll probably make time to fit in the last McClellan book this month after I finish Wrath of Empire (he’s so good).  

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!
