Tackling the TBR [16]: October 2016

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:

October 2016 TBR Tackler Shelf:

This month’s TBR feels a little all over the place to me, but they’re either new releases that I’ve been excited about or titles I’ve been eyeballing for months. At the moment, the one I’m most excited about is The Leopard King by Anna Aguirre. It’s a new paranormal romance that I just found out about a week ago and I’m thrilled. 

Last month I did a pretty good job knocking titles off of my list, so this month only has a couple of carryovers.


Feel free to share your versions of how you manage your TBR pile (and the links to your posts if applicable) in the comments. Maybe we can help make each other’s systems even better. :)

What books are you Tackling this month?
