November 2018 TBR

I can repeat once again that I can’t believe another month is over, but I guess that line is getting old. 😉 November though? Only two more months and we’ll be writing 2019 everywhere… My October TBR was pretty successful overall with eight out of ten titles read. I still want to read the other two, but they will have to wait until I have more time I guess.

I’m trying to get rid of most of my 2018 NG ARCs early so I can spend the last month of 2018 mostly reading my own books… But since I always like reading as many of the nominated Goodreads Choice Awards books each year, I’m sure I’ll end up reading more of those instead of ARCs. xD And YES, I’m finally going to brave reading Outlander, although I’m not sure if I’ll get to it before the end of the month. It’s taken me years already, so I guess a little while longer doesn’t do any damage. 😉

October 2018 TBR

Wait: it’s October?! As in, only three months of 2018 left?! Seriously where did all those months go… Last month’s N.E.W.T.s Readathon was a huge success (final post about that coming soon), and somehow I managed to read most of the books on the TBR. A true miracle if you ask me! I’ve decided to add only one of the remaining titles to this month’s TBR; the other titles will have to wait until later…

>>> Find a complete list of my TBR on Goodreads <<<

I’m a bit behind with my pending ARCs, so you’ll find a lot of ARCs on my October TBR. I was initially going for a full Halloween TBR, but since a lot of the ARCs are thrillers in the first place, I’ve decided to throw in a few different genres as well. I’ll be looking forward to these!

August 2018 TBR

How on earth can it be August already?! Time is seriously going way too fast… July was another good month bookish wise and I managed to read more than I thought I would. And I came really close to finishing my monthly TBR for the second month in a row! Only one book left, although technically I should cross it off as well since I’m currently buddy reading it with Nicki @ Secret Library and will be able to finish it soon.

I’m a bit behind with my pending ARCs, so you’ll find a lot of ARCs on my August TBR. I’m also planning to read my last pending (modern) classic, which counts as my final Reading Through The Centuries titles as well… And I’m hoping to cross off my final international author too. There are a lot of titles I’m really excited about on here so fingers crossed for a great August!

July 2018 TBR

Somehow we have now officially started with the second half of 2018. When did that happen?! Time is seriously going way too fast… June was a really good month bookish wise and I managed to read more than I thought I would. And somehow I actually read all of the books on my June TBR as well. Yes, you read that right: I actually managed to squeeze in all ten of the titles below in between other books last month. Woohoo!

>>> Find a complete list of the books of books owned and waiting to be read here and my full TBR list at Goodreads here <<<

I managed to make a good dent into my ARC TBR, so I’m happy to say I’ll be able to read more of my backlist books this month. Yay for reading my own books again! I have a few ARCs pending, and knowing myself, I know more will pop up, but I’m hoping to also be able to read a few of the other titles on here. And I’m finally picking up my first Dutch read of the year! Or at least that’s the plan haha.

June 2018 TBR

Somehow it’s June already and we are already almost halfway through 2018. When did that happen?! It’s time to check on how I did on my April-May TBR list, and spoiler: I totally failed to stick to it. Oh yes, my last TBR was pretty hopeless as I only read a meager third of the books I was supposed to read (and those were all pending ARCs I had to read before my trip). I guess it does show I gave myself the gift of reading my own books during my hiatus haha. I still want to read the other titles on the list as well though, and you’ll see quite a few on this month’s TBR.

>>> Find a complete list of the books of books owned and waiting to be read here and my full TBR list at Goodreads here <<<

While it was great being able to pick up my own titles again, it does mean I’m now behind with my pending ARCs… And I have a ton that are due in June. Oops? So the TBR below includes a lot of ARCs, although I have a few other titles thrown in as well. And I might just read one or two of my new physical titles instead of the ones mentioned below, but we’ll see how things go this month. 😉

  • The Date by Louise Jensen (315 pages) NETGALLEY
  • The Lost For Words Bookshop by Stephanie Butland (304 pages) NETGALLEY

April-May 2018 TBR

Wait, it’s April already? And the season has changed? Where on earth did the first three months of 2018 go?? March was a great reading month and I managed to read almost every book on my March TBR, which is a first. The only reason I didn’t pick up The Dream Thieves is because I don’t have time for the other sequels right now and prefer to read them all together. Hopefully when I’m back from my trip!

>>> Find a complete list of the books of books owned and waiting to be read here and my full TBR list at Goodreads here <<<

 Since I will be going on a hiatus starting April 23rd and won’t be back until June, I’ve decided to make a TBR for the next two months instead. I’m not sure how much time I’ll be having during our travels in Europe, but we’ll see how things go I guess. The TBR below is a mix of pending ARCs I’m going to try and get to before our trip and titles I’ve been wanting to read for a while. Looking forward to these!

Upcoming ARC Reads

As I revealed last week, we will be going on a Eurotrip starting April 24th and It’s All About Books will be going on an Eurotrip hiatus from April 23rd to June 1st.

I already have a similar list on my Excel spreadsheet, but I wanted to break down the pending ARCs on my pile by month for easy viewing. It’s also a great opportunity to show what will be coming up on my blog before my break!
