It’s been a while since I’ve made a TBR because I never follow them; but fall is here!! It’s one of my favorite seasons and since I’m in a good mood and have already had two pumpkin spice lattes since October started, I thought I’d do one of my favorite blogging things — make a TBR!!
For me, fall is from October to about mid-December, so I’ll try to focus on these books for that time. I’ve already started a few, so I’m optimistic that I’ll complete at least 2 of the books on this list.
I’ll also participate in Spooktastic Reads, which is a laid-back reading and blogging event hosted by the Wyrd & Wonder crew over the 13 days leading up to Halloween, and will read some of these for that event too.
My mini book tag week continues with the Opposite Book Tag, which I found on the Book Forager just a few days ago. I decided to do it because it pushed me to take a look at the digital version of my collection to answer some of the questions. I love playing around with it, lol.
First book in your collection | Last book you bought
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes: A No-Bullshit Guide to World Mythology by Cory O’Brien, illus. by Sarah E. Melville
I don’t remember the first one in my collection, so I went with my copy of The Great Gatsby, which I actually took from my dad. It’s pretty old, so it’s been in my family’s collection (and now mine) for a while.
I’m in a book tag mood, so I declare a BOOK TAG WEEK!! But since we’re already halfway through the week, this will be a mini book tag week.
I did this tag last year after seeing it over on Kristin Kraves and have decided to do it again after seeing a recent post Kristin did, so shout out her! 😀
The tag was created by Faith at You Are What You Read and, like Faith, I’ll only consider for this the books I read in June to August.
Which book can you not stop thinking about?
Witch Hat Atelier, Vol. 1 by Kamome Shirahama (illus.), transl. by Stephen Kohler
This a fantasy manga about a girl who adores magic and gets the opportunity to become a witch but, unfortunately, at a dire cost. I enjoyed the story and admired the illustrations and am looking forward to continuing with it.
For me, a TBR list often becomes a list of books I really want to read and tell myself to read but never actually read, which is kinda what happened with my summer TBR. I read every other book except the ones on my TBR. Well, I did manage to read one — The Lost Years of Merlin — but that’s because I read it for a buddy-read. If not for that, it probably wouldn’t have been read.
I love creating TBR lists. I get excited when I think about making a list of books to read, though I tend to go overboard and list more than I’m likely to complete. Not that it matters much, since I hardly ever read the books I include on my TBR list. I do try, but for some reason, after I list them, I don’t pick them up. My mood instead pushes me to consider other books.
Well, here I’m listing books I’ve already started, borrowed, or know, for sure, that I will, mos’ def, read in the coming months. I hope to get through a couple of them in the next few days since I’ll be going on a little trip, so things might be silent on here for a while if I’m unable to blog from where I will be. Anyways, the books:
