Top Ten Tuesday #53: Books of TBRs Past

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic:

Books From My Past Seasonal TBR Posts I STILL Haven’t Read

I got excited when I saw this topic because I was thinking to do something similar soon. I enjoy making TBRs, but I suck at following them during the time limit I set for myself. However, going through the TBRs I’ve made over the years, I realized that I eventually managed to read the majority of books on them.

Well, here are the remaining books I’d like to FINALLY read. (Totally didn’t realize it’s supposed be for seasonal TBRs. I included some for readathons and other reading events.)

2022 Reading Plans

Typically, I’d post this as soon as the new year starts, but I haven’t been in the mood to read or blog, so I delayed it until I was.

Considering how low my interest in reading and blogging was in December and the beginning of this year, I’d like to take things super easy this year regarding my reading. Most of my goals will be the same as previous years, but I intend to scale back on the amount I intend to read. I’ll also pass on continuing with certain goals, like the list of 8 books I really want to read but never get to every year. (Maybe I’ll get to them this year when I don’t have them listed as a goal.)

OVERALL READING GOALS

spend less
read more of my own books
take it easy

I’d like to try harder to spend less on books, so fingers crossed that I manage to do so this year (although I’ve already bought a couple books since the year started. Whoops!). Of course, I’d also like to read more of my own stuff in an attempt to weed out books I hate from my shelves. And, as I mentioned above, I’d like to take it easy this year with the goals.

Down the TBR Hole #10: First of 2019

Down the TBR Hole is a meme created by Lia at Lost in a Story where we decide whether to keep or remove books on our TBR.

The rules for Down the TBR Hole:
  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

I’ve switched it up some and will only list the books I plan to remove from my Goodreads TBR. Those with a green Kick Off are ones I’ll probably change my mind on and read at some point.

Down the TBR Hole #5: I Switch It Up Some

Here’s another edition of Down the TBR Hole, a meme created by Lia at Lost in a Story where we decide whether to keep or remove books on our TBR.

Since I have a lot of books on my Goodreads TBR (888 total at the time I’m writing this), which I use for this tag, I decided to switch it up and only include the books I’ll Kick Off my TBR. Otherwise, that would be a lot of books to include in this meme. I want to go through my TBR quicker because I’d really like to clear out the books I’m no longer interested in.

However, I wouldn’t say this is a final decision. A huge reason why I like this tag is because it gives me the opportunity to record on my blog the books I removed from my TBR, so I can look back on these posts months in the future and still choose one of these Kicked Off books to read, which, knowing myself, is totally possible.

The rules for Down the TBR Hole:
  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?
