I definitely have a large TBR on goodreads, but I really don’t do monthly TBR’s. I see so many people that do, so I thought it would be fun to discuss this topic.
For me, I’m a mood reader. If I set a very specific TBR, I am setting myself up for failure. It also takes away some of the fun of reading and makes it feel more like a chore at times.
I however do have to make a partial TBR each month.
- I have arcs that need to be read and reviewed
- I am joining a group event or book of the month
- I’m doing a specific type of readathon
Most months I have 5-10 arcs that need to be read, so that fills up a lot of my TBR. But I like to fill in with other books of my choice in between those. Sometimes I’ll read something brand new, and other times it will be something I’ve had for a year or more.
Some of my months are pretty much set and I tend to get a bit frustrated at times. But other months are really easy for me and I can just pick up whatever I want with no pressure to read.
Do you make a TBR?
If you do make one, do you usually stick to it? Why do you make a TBR?
If you don’t, is there a reason why? Did you used to make one and quit?
I’m curious to see what everyone does, so I hope you comment below!
