Fall 2020 TBR

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.

Well then, here’s what I plan to read:

Mini Book Tag Week: Opposite Book Tag

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.

Mini Book Tag Week: End of Summer Recap Book Tag – 2020

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.

Top Ten Tuesday #43: Fall 2019 TBR

Totally late, but whatever.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but is now managed by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic:

Books on My Fall 2019 TBR

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.

Anyway, here’s what I might not read this fall.

Fall & Winter 2016 TBR

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:
