Tackling the TBR [47]: July 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:

July 2019 TBR Tackler Shelf:

Priority Titles!!!

The Reserve…

…I’m pretty sure I only read 3 books last month. It’s summer, so I’ve been spending most of my free time adventuring and all of my creative hobbies have gone by the wayside. I’m itching to get back into them, though, and reading more is my first endeavor. Incidentally, last month I also made a commitment to review more things, but then my Reckoning review took almost a week and a half to compose (the struggle was real) and I lost my momentum. I have a mini goal to review 50 titles by the end of the year and at the pace I’m going, I’m not even going to get close (one of these days I’ll learn not to set ridiculous goals, but not any time soon). For the remainder of July, I’m hoping to enjoy all of my priority titles (the first 3 of which are review obligations) starting with Aftershocks (which is stellar so far!). Here’s to a productive July! :)


Have a great month in reading!
