Tackling My TBR: February 2019

Wednesday, February 06, 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 January, I tackled my December 2010 book haul, completing 3 books. I was so excited to start Wolves, Boys and Other Things That Might Kill Me by Kristen Chandler, expecting a cute romance. However, there was barely any romance and it just wasn’t what I wanted at all. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins was my first ever foray into Hawkins’ writing and as much as I wasn’t crazy about the book, I’m still going to read more from Hawkins in the future. Inception: The Shooting Script was such an easy and fast read; the book includes the script with a few little extras as well. If you’re a fan of the movie, definitely check it out!

Now on to this month's reads from an old haul. This month I'll be working on my January 2011 book haul. There's quite a lot of books but I was able to find some of them in audio so I'm hoping the list looks more overwhelming than they actually are:

Deadly Little Voices by Laurie Faria Stolarz: Laurie Faria Stolarz is my number favorite author. I have only 3 unread books of hers and then I have to wait for her next work. I have no doubt, however, that I will love this one!

Bite Club by Rachel Caine: I’m working my way through the longest book series ever: the Morganville Vampire series. It’s been a great time to see what all my favorite characters have been up to.

Graveminder by Melissa Marr: Zombies aren’t really my thing. Actually, they’ve never really been my thing so I can’t tell you why I picked up this book. Except Melissa Marr is the author of the Wicked Lovely series which I adored back in the day. I’m hesitant to see how she does with this adult fiction about zombies.

Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick: I’ve heard a lot of people say this book, the third book, is the worst of all in the series. The second one was good so I’m hoping for a similar outcome here. We shall see.

Blessed by Cynthia Leitich Smith: In my bookish goals, I hope to finish 12 series this year and I specifically listed this one. I only have two more books to go and then I finish the series. I can’t say that I remember the last book very clearly but I’m hoping it will all come back to me sooner than later.


Contemporary-a-thon is hosted by booktubers: ChelseaDolingReads, MelToTheAny, Pages and Pens, and MyReadingisOdd. Here’s the announcement and challenges for the readathon. This readathon takes place between February 11th to the 17th. Participants have to read all contemporary novels. There are 7 challenges for the readathon. Here’s the books I hope to get to:

Read the most recent contemporary book you purchased/acquired: Meet Cute by various authors
Read book with blue or purple on the cover: Deadly Little Voices by Laurie Faria Stolarz
Read a diverse contemporary: Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok

Read a dark/emotional/hard-hitting contemporary: A Heart in a Body in the World by Deb Caletti
Read a contemporary that you meant to read in 2018 but didn’t: That’s Not What Happened by Kody Keplinger
Read a contemporary in a non-traditional format: Still Me by Jojo Moyes
Read a contemporary with some sort of picture on the spine: The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo
