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).

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.

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

October 2019 TBR

I can’t believe it’s October already! October, the month of creepy Halloween reads and also the month newly known as #Orentober… I’m SO excited to be reading books for both this month! My September TBR wasn’t that much of a success, but that is mostly because I’ve been getting way too many ARCs lately and I spent most of September trying to catch up. Whoops?

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

I have two 2019 blog tour reads still pending, one for October and one for November, and I also have a pile of Netgalley ARCs I really need to get to ASAP. The rest of the books are a mix of creepy Halloween reads and titles for #Orentober. This TBR is more ambitious than usual but I really hope to be able to read most of these by the end of the month…

September 2019 TBR

Time is flying by so fast and we’re already about to start month number nine of 2019… #NEWTsReadathon2019 month passed in a blink of the eye! My August TBR was really successful and I’m not surprised, as they were all titles that fitted the prompts for the readathon in the first place. 😉

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

I have two blog tours and three other ARCs lined up for September, but for the rest of the month I’m hoping to slow down and finally get to a couple longer backlist titles I’ve been meaning to read… Including the Outlander sequel, which I’m a bit hesitant about since I’ve heard it’s not as good as the first and a bit overlong. Fingers crossed it won’t be too much of a struggle!

August 2019 TBR

Time is flying by so fast and we’re already starting month number eight of 2019… My July TBR went well enough, although I did end up getting a couple more ARCs and read other titles on a whim, with the result I didn’t manage to read all of the titles on my monthly TBR. The Willow Woman is up soon though, but Force Of Nature will have to wait until a later date…

August is Magical Readathon N.E.W.T.s month which means I’ll basically be reading the books on my N.E.W.T.s TBR, although I did switch titles for some of the prompts. Below I’ll mention the ten titles I’ll be giving a priority to…
