May 2017 TBR

I can’t believe it’s already the fifth month of 2017… April passed in the blink of an eye, and somehow I managed to read quite a lot. The #AVAReadathon (A Very ARCish Readathon hosted by Aimal at Bookmarks And Paperbacks) helped me read a LOT of ARCs, with no less than 13 read AND reviewed ARCs in a month (the last one to be published later today). I only managed to read 6 out of the 10 titles on my April TBR though, which was mostly because I decided to pick up different ARCs instead and I wasn’t in the mood for fantasy reads for most of the month.

Even though I made April into an ARC month, somehow my NG ratio dropped to 81% anyway… Oops? So I’ve decided to squeeze in another ARC month in May with the hopes I will be able to get to at least a few of my own books in June. (I know that is probably wishful thinking though) Most of the books on my May TBR are ARCs of a variety of genres, with one exception: the historical fiction novel Lilac Girls which I have been wanting to read for ages now.

April 2017 TBR

The first three months on 2017 have literally disappeared into thin air and I can’t believe it’s April already. March was a great month with lots of positive things happening… With the highlight probably being the arrival of our new kitten Lila (named after Delilah Bard). Bookishly speaking, March was also a great month and I managed to read no less than eight titles on last month’s TBR. Definitely more than I was hoping for! 😀

This month I will be participating in the #AVAReadathon (A Very ARCish Readathon) hosted by Aimal at Bookmarks And Paperbacks, so my April TBR will basically be packed with ARCs again this month. I’m finally on track with my Netgalley reads (currently 85% ratio!!! *does happy dance*), and I hope to be on track with my other pending ARCs by the end of the month. Fingers crossed!

March 2017 TBR

march2017tbr

I can’t believe it’s actually MARCH 2017 already! The third month of this year already, and also my birthday month… And hopefully less extreme weather. Last month’s TBR was without doubt a disaster and I only read three of the titles I wanted to read. It’s easy to explain though, because I basically have a mountain of pending ARCs waiting for me right now so I just don’t have time to read any of the other titles right now. These titles below are still high on my priority list though! Fingers crossed April or May will be less busy.

February 2017 TBR

february2017tbr

I can’t believe the first month of 2017 is already over! Time is surely flying away way too quickly… Last month’s TBR didn’t work out all that good; I only managed to read half of the books on my January TBR, but that’s mostly because I was focusing on finishing a lot of pending ARCs. Fingers crossed I will be able to do better this month!

I still have quite a few ARCs pending and I’m going to try and read them ASAP, but I also want to continue reading those titles that have been on my TBR for a while. This TBR is a mix of both and has books of a variety of genres as well. 😀

January 2017 TBR

january2017tbrmeme

It’s so weird having to start typing 2017 from now on! But the new year is already on its second day and it’s time to think about what I want to read this month. Last month’s TBR worked out pretty good and I managed to read seven of the ten titles on it, so I’m hoping January will be just as good. Fingers crossed!

November 2016 TBR

november2016tbrWait, it’s November already?! Seriously, this year is just flying away… I didn’t get to read all the books on my Halloween TBR last month, mostly because I had a pile of ARCs to work through and I’m still waaaay behind with my reviews. Five out of ten is still I pretty decent number I guess.

october2016tbrdone

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

This month I’ve decided to select a mix of ARCs and books I have been wanting to read for a while now… A bunch of different genres as well, so I should be able to read quite a few no matter what I’m in the mood for!
