Tackling my TBR: April 2019

Thursday, April 11, 2019

Tackling My TBR is a monthly post, where I share my reading plans for the upcoming month. The concept of a TBR Jar is not a new one. I’ve seen it used in various ways throughout the bookish community. My jar will be a little different. The goal is to read the older books on my to-read pile. Thus, instead of putting individual book titles on a small sheet of paper to place in the jar, I wrote a month and a year on each. Each month, I intend to pull three sheets of paper from my jar which will dictate which three books I will read. The dates on the paper correspond with the date I added those books to my Goodreads. Some months will have over 20 books to choose from, when others may have only one. From Goodreads, I’ll choose the three books from the three different monthly hauls. And if I cannot complete the book within the month, it will be unhauled.

In March, I tackled books from my October 2017, June 2016, and July 2012 book hauls. I am ecstatic that I finally picked up Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. It was a great book and I’m looking forward to reading the sequel. I’m currently reading Bite Club by Rachel Caine. As much as the series is so long, there is never a dull moment with these books, always entertaining. And in the end, I decided to unhaul Gilt by Katherine Longshore. I am very picky about the historical books I read and Gilt didn’t sound like something I would enjoy now.

From the jar, I picked May 2018, July 2011, and July 2012 book hauls. I chose the following books:

The Fandom by Anna Day: This book sounds absolutely epic. It’s strange that I haven’t picked it up until now. A group of fans meet at a fan convention and discover a portal that leaves them stuck in the fandom they so adore. However, with their presence, they begin to change the timeline—and they may have accidentally killed the fandom’s protagonist.

Last Breath by Rachel Caine: I’m excited that another Morganville Vampire series book was chosen this month. I’m slowly working my way through the series. It’s a good series, there’s just so many books in it. Last Breath is book 11 in the series.

Enchanted by Alethea Kontis: I adore cute fairytale retellings during the spring. Enchanted is a retelling of The Princess and the Frog.

What are you planning on reading this month?
