July 2019 TBR

I can’t believe we are now officially done with the first half of 2019!! I mean, were did the last six months go??? My June TBR went pretty well and the only reasons I didn’t finish the last three is that I’ve been trying to both come closer to finishing a couple of challenges and picking up titles on a whim depending on whatever I was in the mood for. I’m actually reading The Boy Who Steals Houses right now though and I still plan to read the other two very soon.

I’m going to mostly read my own titles in July, a mix of titles I’ve been dying to read and others I need for challenges. I also have a most anticipated release ARC (guess which one that is?!), two upcoming blog tour reads, a Criminally Good Book Club (Instagram) read (The Puppet Show) and a buddy read with Nicki in the second half of July (The Willow Woman). I’m looking forward to all of these! And I’m having a feeling that picking a July favorite will going to be HARD. xD

June 2019 TBR

I can’t believe we have already started the sixth month of the year!! I mean, we are already almost halfway done with 2019; where did the time go? My May TBR went pretty well and the only reason I didn’t finish all ten titles in time was because I had to finish a pile of pending ARCs and other challenge titles instead. Whoops? I did start reading Six Stories, so technically I will have read all of them soon…

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

I’m hoping to finish my June and July ARCs early this month so I will be able to take a break and read mostly my own books until August… Both to fight a lingering blogging slump, finally read some of those backlist titles and to get my ARC/backlist title ratio below 40% again. I’m looking forward to read the titles below!

May 2019 TBR

I can’t believe we have already started the fifth month of the year!! Time seriously flies by way too fast… My April TBR went pretty well and the only reason I didn’t finish all ten titles on it was because I had to finished a pile of pending ARCs and my readathon reads instead. Whoops? Circe goes straight to my May TBR though.

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

I’m hoping to get my ARC/backlist title ratio below 40% again this month, but I have a huge pile of ARCs pending so I’m not sure I will be able to. xD I’m hoping to read at least a couple new arrivals though including Circe and Six Stories.

April 2019 TBR

I can’t believe it’s April today and that we are into our second season of the year already!! Time seriously flies by way too fast… My March TBR went pretty well and the only reason I didn’t finish all ten titles on it was because I already read way too many ARCs compared to my backlist titles… No need to say that ratio is no longer below the promised 40%. xD The Murmur Of Bees is due in April though, so it goes straight to my April TBR.

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

I’m hoping to get my ARC/backlist title ratio below 40% again this month, but I do have quite a few ARCs due soon so I’m not sure how well that will go. I’m also doing the O.W.L.s Harry Potter themed readathon, so quite a few titles will be for that challenge (almost all except for I’ll Be Gone In The Dark)… I’m waiting for a bunch of books to arrive though including Circe (thanks again Eva for helping me order them! <3), so my TBR might change once they do. 😉

# TBR #

  • Circe by Madeleine Miller (337 pages)
  • I’ll Be Gone In The Dark by Michelle McNamara (352 pages)

March 2019 TBR

February has simply flown by… I still can’t believe it’s March already and that I’m going to be one year older this month! February was a busy month including a trip out of town, so I’m surprised I was still able to read most books on my February TBR. Especially since one was a 800+ pages book… I still want to read Next Year In Havana ASAP, but I’m saving it for April as I have a bunch of historical fiction reads coming up already.

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

I’m still keeping true to my promise to keep my ARC/backlist title ratio below 40%, although it does mean I haven’t been able to make a proper dent in my ARC pile. It’s one of the reasons my March TBR once again has a lot of ARCs included, although I’m happy to have a few backlist titles as well I’m excited about. I also have two upcoming blog tours in March!

February 2019 TBR

January 2019 has passed way too fast, and we’re already in the second month of the year… January was a super reading month despite the camping trip and I managed to read a LOT. I’m not surprised I was able to read all the titles on my January TBR even though I did read a lot of backtitles as well… Fingers crossed February will be another good month!

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

I have been able to maintain the balance between ARCs and backlist titles in January, but that does mean I still have a lot of ARCs to go through… That’s why most of the titles on my February TBR are still ARCs, with a few backlist titles I want to get to no matter what.

January 2019 TBR

I am shocked that in only two days I will have to start typing 2019 and this year is officially over. Where did 2018 go? I’m posting my January 2019 TBR a bit early this year, because I’m not sure in what state I will be on the first. 😉 December turned out to be a super busy month and I didn’t read as much as previous months… Probably why I didn’t read all the titles on my December TBR. All three remaining titles passed straight to the next month though.

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

I was hoping to start reading my own books in 2019, but I have so many pending ARCs that that just isn’t in the cards for now. Most of my January TBR is made out of ARCs, with a few backlist titles thrown in to mix things up. Although I’ll probably end up more backlist titles in the end. 😉
