Mini TBR – September Edition

Mini TBR – September Edition

Remember how last month I said I’ll go back to including book covers this month? That was before two readathons I’m interested in participating in were announced. Magical Readathon run by G at Book Roast and Bookoplathon by Becca from Becca and the Books.

I now have a massive pile of books to read through as well as a few ARCs and some extras I picked out to read before deciding I’d do these readathons. So my reading is jampacked. I’m doing every prompt for the Magical Readathon which doesn’t allow double-ups. I then did 6 rolls on the bookopoly board. I was lucky in that I mostly managed to fill the prompts with books from the TBR I had already built for Magical Readathon. I did however, have to add one more book onto the pile.

August Mini TBR

August Mini TBR

How are we in August already?! I’m at a point in the year where I realised that I did not leave enough space for all the ARCs I would request and get in my journal. So that and needing to get my physical TBR way down has meant that I am severely limiting what ARCs I ask for now. That being said, I do still have a few for this month.

My only reading goal is to finally finish the pile of books I’ve been working through for nearly two months. The pile was massive, and with ARCs and library books on top…it just hasn’t really gone down. I am getting through it now, and I think I should get to the bottom by the end of August.

I’ll be so glad to be able to pull from the jar again. My next pile is so much smaller.

Obviously, as usual, I’ve decided to note down a few of the books that I want to read this month. This list is going to be very short, as I don’t really have many books that I want to talk about this month. Don’t get me wrong, I want to read all the books on my pile. But there are a lot of sequels.

Fun Things To Try With Your TBR

Fun Things To Try With Your TBR

Whether you have a monthly TBR, mood read or if like me, you just create a new TBR when you’ve finished your current one, it can get a little samey. Sometimes we just want to mix things up, but we can’t always think of an obvious way to do it.

There are a lot of fun TBR games out there, and I usually want to give them a try. But it’s not always quick and easy to do so.

That doesn’t mean you can’t though. There are definitely ways you can try something different with your TBR. Even if it’s not a permanent change, you might want to try these out sometimes.

Mini TBR – July 2021

Mini TBR – July 2021

Where has the time gone?! Seriously. I can’t believe we’re in July already. It’s my brother’s birthday this month, so I’ll have an opportunity to get out into the bookshops. I also seem to have gotten out of my reading slump. But to be safe, I’m going to keep this TBR short and sweet. Well, kind of.

Mini TBR – June 2021

Mini TBR – June 2021

After a terrible reading month, personally last month, I plan to make this month a lot better. It is also Pride month – celebrate! – but you won’t find any queer books on this list. Why? Because I’m a servant to my TBR jar, and only one of the books on my current TBR pile is queer. I’ll probably try to listen to at least one queer audiobook, but I don’t know what one yet.

I’m generally reading queer books all year round, so I’m not that bothered.

This TBR post may be a little different. I’m only going to focus on the details of the books from my unread TBR that I want to read. I’ll be listing a few other books. But as I’m trying to focus on getting through my owned books, I’m trying it this way this month.

Mini TBR – May 2021

Mini TBR – May 2021

I can’t believe we’re already into May! If this were a safer year where things were open, I’d probably be hoping to go to the London MCM Comic Con, whatever it’s called. I miss being able to go look at artists stalls and go buy all the anime and game merch, sigh. But that does mean that I should have plenty of time to read!

That aside, I will be once again trying to keep this mini TBR, well, mini. Just so it isn’t hellishly difficult to write. I’ve got five books to go through with you all this month, so let’s get started!

Mini TBR – April 2021

Mini TBR – April 2021

Hello guys!

I know this post is a little later than usual. Things have been a little chaotic at my end. And my brain has been a little bit of a mess too. If I’m honest, I only just realised this post was going to be late. But that’s fine, it’s my blog, so I can do what I like. Plus, it’ll still be up at the beginning of the month, so, y’know.

This is probably going to be a little shorter than my mini TBR’s usually are because, well, my reading hasn’t been going great. Where I usually wind up starting on my mini TBR books before the month actually begins – oops – this month, I still have three books on my current TBR. So, for once I should be only reading these books during the month. And since they’re not exactly tiny books, I want to be able to actually get through them all.

I also won’t be listing any ARCs this month. I do have a few to read including a manga book. But since none of them are published in April. And focusing on ARCs so much has exhausted me a little. I’m taking a break for at least the first half of the month. I’m gonna focus on reading books I’ve bought for a bit, but I should hopefully be getting some reviews up for those too. I will have a Manga ARC review coming up sometime soon, but I don’t include manga on my TBR.

So without further ado: my mini TBR!

Mini TBR – March 2021

Mini TBR – March 2021

Part of me has been dreading writing this post. Not because I don’t want to share my TBR with y’all. But because even a mini TBR this month is going to be a long one. And I’m a little scared of having to write about all these books.

So, I’ve decided to write just one or two sentences each about all of these books. And if you’re curious for more, you can always check them out on retail sites. There will be links below! If I like writing the post up this way then I’ll be doing so from now own. Let me knows what you guys think of the shorter summaries!

Mini TBR – February 2021

Mini TBR  – February 2021

Sharing a mini TBR last month was a lot of fun, and I can happily tell you that I have completed it! Admittedly, I did wind up reading Blood and Honey in December after writing the January post. But, I still read the book, so I’m totally counting it. One of the books was also a DNF, which was a shame, but I’m not mad about it. There are too many good books out there to force myself to finish one I’m not enjoying. I also didn’t quite complete the very large pile my mini TBR was chosen from. It was so close though! I only have like two books left on it, but I threw in some ARCs and some library books and it all adds up to extra reading.

But I completed my mini TBR, and I want to celebrate that!

And by celebrate, I mean, let me share my mini TBR for February.

What? Don’t pretend you didn’t know what the celebration was going to be. This time I’m going to list the ARCs I plan on reading this month as well. There’s always a chance I’ll pick a few more of these up, but I have banned myself from requesting on NetGalley for a bit, so, hopefully not XD.

Books I’m Intimidated By

Books I’m Intimidated By

Big books scare me. There. I said it. I don’t like picking up big books as I’m worried they’ll take me a while to get through and I prefer reading things quickly. Unfortunately, there are some big books out there that look good, and I do still plan to read them. They just intimidate the hell out of me.

And that’s not the only thing about certain books that intimidates me. It’s just the main reason. So I just wanted to do a quick post talking about some of these books. Hopefully, you guys can tell me how amazing they are and make me want to pick them up sooner!
