Tackling My TBR: January 2019

Friday, January 04, 2019

Tackling My TBR is a monthly post, where I share my reading plans for the upcoming month. I was so inspired by booktuber’s, BooksandLala, Closet Unhaul series to tackle my own TBR in a similar method. I'm going to challenge myself to read books from my old hauls and if I can’t complete them within the month, I must unhaul them the next month. Also, any readathons or other challenges for the month will also be posted in this monthly post.

In December, I tackled both my October and November 2010 book haul, totaling in at 3 books. In all, I read two of the three books. Charlotte and Emily by Jude Morgan was a fiction dramatization of the Bronte sisters' lives. Primarily, the book was about Charlotte but readers get a taste of each of the three sisters through this fictional take. It was a bit slow but I am still happy to have read it. Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon was, also, undertaken in December and it was such a mess. I suppose this series was written for fans of her other books, as it is set in the same world as her adult paranormal series, Dark Hunters (which I've never read). I just hope the books get better as the series progresses as I own all the books except for the fourth. I left Vixen by Jillian Larkin for the end of the month because I was on the fence about it. And in the end, I decided to unhaul it because I just couldn't even psych myself up to read it, for some reason.

On to this month, a new year, I will be making my way through my December 2010 book haul. It consists of 3 books which is another great, do-able number, considering the hauls seem to get larger in 2011 as the months go along (#bookbloggerlife).

Wolves, Boys, and Other Things That Might Kill Me by Kristen Chandler: I adore quirky titles like this - you know the ones like Kale, My Ex, and Other Things to Toss in a Blunder or Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend. These titles, so cute, just make me smile. So, I bought this on a whim because of the title. From what I just read of the synopsis, it sounds like a cute contemporary about an unlikely pair getting together to complete a school project on wolves.

Inception: The Shooting Script by Christopher Nolan: Inception is one of my favorite movies of all time. In the height of its popularity, I purchased this book which is essentially the movie script, complete with behind-the-scenes notes, storyboards, and more from the director himself. I started this a while ago and put it down so I don't think it will take me long to finish it now.

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins: For some reason, I thought this was a standalone. In fact, it is a trilogy. I'm super excited about this one because it's been appearing on my immediate TBR for years and it's finally going to be read. Plus, I was interested in purchasing Hawkins' Royals, her latest book, so this will give me an idea of her writing style. Hex Hall is about Sophie, a witch, who has to attend an isolated reform magic school when her spells draw too much human attention at prom.

What are you planning on reading this month?
