So, if you have been following me then you know that I am changing things up. And you may have noticed that I have published two different TBRs (one created by Random.org and a 5N5 tbr). What you may not have seen is the wrap-ups for those TBRs. And you may have been wondering why. Well. I suck at following a TBR. I get distracted by other books. I follow a reading rabbit hole and go totally off script. My mood changes. Or all of these things. For the second half of the year, I am greatly reducing the unread books that I buy (I love adding to my collection so I am allowing myself to buy books that I have read and do not own. Balance) to focus on reading the books already on my shelves – digital and print. But I won’t be following TBRs or any other plan. I will just be picking them up as I want to, only following a 5 n 5 pattern; 5 digital and 5 print. And I will do wrap-ups that way. My monthly wrap-ups will be smaller consisting only of books that don’t fall into the 5 n 5, like audio books, books I’ve read to my kids and books I’ve read in the background of all my other reading (classics and non-fiction).
So did I do with my previous TBRs?
Little & Lion by Brandon Colbert – Read but DNF’d
Magic Forest by Zanna Davidson- Read and enjoyed, bought the next two in the series
Upgrade by Rena Florida -Read but DNF’d
Kindness for Goodness by Shawn Goodman – read and enjoyed
Didn’t read at all:
Enter Night by Michael Rowe
Sindicate by J.T. Nichols
Jar of Hears by Jennifer Hillier
The Wolf by Leo Carew
I will be reading these books soonish, but not exactly soon enough to be on any TBR.
Since I will be doing a wrap-up for this I won’t go through the list of books. I will say that the books have changed. But so far, I have read two digital titles, 1 print title and DNF’d 1 print title.
So are you a mood reader or TBR kind of person? Let me know in the comments. And I promise, one day I will have it all figured out and put together!
