July 2020 TBR

Once again, let’s just focus on bookish June instead… I think this is the first time in a long long time I actually managed to read all the books on my monthly TBR! This is probably partly because a lot them were pending ARCs, but I also read more than usual last month as books helped me escape the chaos and COVID-19 fear in our town and the world for a little while…

I’m still trying to get my ARC pile under control, and I have a bunch of blog tour reads and other ARCs coming up this month. I do hope to find time for a couple of 20 Books Of Summer titles as well as some other titles I’ve been wanting to read too… I’m not sure how many of these I will be able to read though, as we have a huge DIY and home improvement project coming up this month (and maybe the next too) and I’m not sure how much free time/energy I’ll have left to read. xD

June 2020 TBR

May May, what to say about you? Let’s just focus on bookish May instead… I managed to read most of the books on my May TBR, which is at least something positive I guess. The final ones I didn’t read either because I wasn’t in the mood for the genre or because I decided to save them for later…

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

My whole ARC situation is quickly spinning out of control, so I’ve decided to mostly focus on getting some of those ARCs read in June. The majority of the titles below are therefore ARCs/blog tours due either in June or July… I’ve managed to squeeze in a few new releases and backlist titles as well though.

May 2020 TBR

I’ve decided to send April 2020 to stand in the corner, because seriously?! Let’s just focus on bookish April instead… Bookish wise, I managed to read a lot of the books on my April TBR, which is at least something positive. The final ones I didn’t read either because I wasn’t in the mood for the genre or because I decided to save them for May.

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

I really need to work on my pile of ARCs, so I will be reading a bunch of those during May including three upcoming blog tour reads. I will also be doing a series binge-read of the Eddie Flynn books during May… And the rest are backlist titles I’ve been meaning to read.

April 2020 TBR

March, March, what a difficult month you have been… A month of contrasts; I don’t think I’ve had a birthday month this depressing before to be honest. Bookish wise, I managed to read a lot of the books on my March TBR, which is at least something positive. The titles I wasn’t able to get to I’m hoping to read either during April or May.

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

April is Magical Readathon: O.W.L.s month, and the majority of the books on my April TBR are for this readathon (the titles marked with OWL)… It’s a mix of pending ARCs, two blog tour reads and a lot of books that fitted the prompts and I have been wanting to read for a while.

March 2020 TBR

Damn, February seems to have passed in a blink! With the new lifestyle changes and an impromptu camping trip, I haven’t been able to read as much as usual, but I’m definitely happy I was still able to get to most of the books on my February TBR. My Eddie Flynn series binge-read will probably have to wait until April as I don’t think I’ll have time for it in March, but I’m reading J.D. Barker‘s newest without fail as it’s due this month. The same goes for Strangers, which I’m starting right now!

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

Like I mentioned in January, I’m still taking it easy with all things blogging this year and I’ll be mostly focusing on my own books again… Although I do have a number of ARCs and two blog tours I will need to get to in March. Other than that, I have quite a few titles lined up that I have been wanting to read for a while now, and I’m also planning on starting my Spanish reread of the final Harry Potter book in March! With this month being my birthday month and a possible trip happening in the second half of March, I don’t think I can actually read all of these, but it is always nice to have a list of options ready right? 😉

February 2020 TBR

How is it February already? Already the second month of a new decade, and time seems to keep flying… My January TBR went pretty well and I managed to read most of the titles on it. I decided to save The Defence for February as I will be binge-reading a couple of series, and the other two I still hope to get to soon (although I’m not sure if I will be able to do so in February).

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

Like I mentioned a few days ago, I’m taking it easy with all things blogging this year and I’ll be mostly reading my own books again with the exception of a select few ARCs of most-anticipated titles… February will be mostly about binge-reading a couple of series in preparation for two Orenda blog tours in March as well as a most-anticipated sequel coming out later this year. I’m also planning to read a few most-anticipated ARCs I just can’t resist any longer, a classic I still can’t believe I haven’t read (or at least I don’t remember doing so when I was little) and another title I’ve been wanting to read for a while.

January 2020 TBR

I still can’t believe we have now officially started a whole new decade! I mean, where did those last ten years go?! A new decade, a new year and a new month, which means it’s time for another monthly TBR… My December 2019 TBR went better than expected, mostly because I’ve been ticking off those ARC boxes like crazy so I can slow down a bit in January and February. I’m planning on reading those remaining titles some time soon as well!

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

I managed to read a lot of ARCs during December, but I still have to read a few more to fully catch up… I’m happy I’ll be having more time to read a few of my own titles as well in January though; the five non-ARCs on my January TBR are all titles I’ve been wanting to read for a while now.

20 Priority Titles in 2020

Let’s forget about the fact that I still have to read five title on my 2019 list, and take a look at 2020… But first of all: Happy Holidays to all of you who celebrate!! I hope everyone has been having a wonderful time so far with the preparations. ❤ ❤ I have to be honest here and say it’s not my favorite season in the world and I still can’t get used to the whole Christmas in the middle of the summer thing even after nine years, but at least the food sort of makes up for it. 😉

With the year almost being over it’s not just time to think about all the books I did read, but also about all those books I wasn’t able to get to in 2019. I’ve decided to put together a list of 20 titles I will be giving a priority in the first months of 2020. I’m sure I will end up mixing it up with other titles as well and there are a ton more I also want to read, but I guess I’ll have to start somewhere right?

So what has been high on my radar, but I wasn’t able to read in 2019? Find out below…

December 2019 TBR

I can’t believe it’s December already! I mean, how is it possible that we are already two days into the last month of 2019?! Anyway, November turned out to be a pretty hopeless month when it comes to following my monthly TBR. xD Partly because I was distracted by the Goodreads Choice Awards nominations and ended up reading a bunch of different titles instead. Whoops? I still want to read all the titles below ASAP, but it probably won’t be until 2020 before I can get to most of them.

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

I’m hoping to take things slow in December as well even though I really have to play catch up with my enormous pile of pending ARCs… A lot of the titles below are actually ARCs, with a Christmas read, a TBR jar pick and two titles I’ve been dying to read thrown in to mix things up a little.

November 2019 TBR

I can’t believe it’s November already! I mean, how is it possible that we only have two months left of 2019?! Anyway, October turned out to be a pretty good reading month with lots of #Orentober and Halloween reads. I didn’t get to all of the books on my October TBR, but I read the mayority so I’m calling it a success. 😉

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

I’ve decided to take a break from blogging in November as the blogging slump has been killing me. More about that in the post scheduled to be posted on Sunday… That will also be the last post for November except for a blog tour review on the 16th and the 26th. First things first, and let’s talk TBR. I’ve been really struggling with my reviews, not being able to write them and not wanting to read just so I wouldn’t have any new books to review. Especially those Orenda books, while absolutely fantastic, have practically destroyed me each time I tried to review them… So in November, I’m going to stay away from them (as much as it pains me as I have so many titles I want to read!) and I’m staying away from ARCs as well.

What will I read then? Since each November the Goodreads Choice Awards go live, I will mostly be reading 2019 releases I have been looking forward to in preparation for that. I’ve added a few backlist titles too, but basically November will be all about 2019 books.. This is only a tentative TBR as I might pick up different titles when the Goodreads Choice Awards nominations are announced; I always like reading as many titles as I can to see if I actually agree with the nominations and winners haha. I’m not sure if I will review all of these as I really need to take a break from blogging, but I know I will most likely end up writing at least shorties reviews for most of these anyway. xD
