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. 😉

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…

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

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…

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.

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

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.
