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:

Books I’ve already started

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.

Top Ten Tuesday #41: 2019 Summer TBR

It’s Top Ten Tuesday on a Friday!! 😀 YEAHIEE!! Shout out to everyone who’s always late to a party!

Books on My Summer 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. However, I surprised myself with the progress I made on my spring TBR. I managed to read 5/10 books! That’s a cause for celebration! 😀 I hardly ever read that many books from my TBR.

I hope I’ll do the same or better with my summer TBR. Here’s what I might read:

Top Ten Tuesday #38: 2019 Spring TBR

Books on My Spring 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. So here are the books I probably won’t read this spring.

Umm…so I’m gonna cheat a little and list the books I’m currently reading. This way, I’m guaranteed to complete at least half the books on this TBR within the given time.

Currently Reading:

Top Ten Tuesday #37: New-to-Me Authors from 2018

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:

New-to-Me Authors I Read In 2018

I read several books last year whose authors are new to me. Some were great picks and I look forward to sampling more of those authors’ work, while others made me regret picking up the book. I’ll focus on the positive in this post and discuss only authors whose work I’d like to try again.

Top Ten Tuesday #36: Books for My TBR by Authors I Like

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 By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read

I’ve decided to switch up the topic a bit and will instead list books I want to read by authors whose work I’ve read and liked. (So not necessarily my favorite authors.)

Top Ten Tuesday #35: Best Books So Far in 2018

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:

Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far in 2018

Here are the best books I’ve read in the first half of the year. I’ll start at January and work my way up. Rereads are not included.

Nightlights by Lorena Alvarez Gomez (illus.)

★★★★☆

Summary: A sweet illustrated children’s graphic novel about a girl who works past her fears to continue creating the whimsical drawings she loves.

Why I like it: It’s a simple but great story about overcoming one’s insecurities to pursue one’s artistic interests, and I love Gomez’s illustrations. They are vibrant and colorful and pop off the pages.

Top Ten Tuesday #34: Summer 2018 TBR

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.

I was hoping for a Summer TBR topic for one of these Top Ten Tuesday posts, but I guess there won’t be one for this year, or maybe I missed it. Anyway, I’ve decided to ignore this week’s topic (red, white, and blue books for the U.S. Independence Day) and instead show y’all what I might not read this summer!! 😀 …Since I never read what I place on my TBR. (I only read 2 books from my spring TBR.)

Summer TBR — Comics!

Despite the lack of confidence in myself that I’ll actually read these, I really hope I do!! Some of these are series I’m already invested in and would like to continue.

Books on My Spring TBR

I love creating TBRs, so I’m excited to do this post. Before we get started, guess how many books I read from my Winter TBR???

**Hint** It’s slightly more than the amount I usually read from my TBRs.

Highlight here =>>   2  <<= for the answer. 😛

Top Ten Tuesday #29: Winter 2017 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, but I couldn’t resist this week’s topic (though I’m a day late with it).

Winter TBR!!!

Umm… so… I’ve neglected my blog for a bit because of the Thanksgiving holiday, but I think I’m back now, and I shall herald my return with a TBR that I’ll probably neglect soon after starting on it. 🙂

Let’s start with the ARCs, which I’ve promised myself that I’ll prioritize:
