2020 June TBR

With the weather getting nicer, I look forward to being able to sit in my parents’ backyard and read in my spare time. After all, one of the few bright parts of being quarantined at my parents’ house is the ability to sit in the backyard while Yzma runs around like a crazy puppy. I don’t know about you, but one of my favourite early summer activities is sitting outside in the sun with a good book.

**For anyone who’s here for the first time, I’ve organized the books by Physical Books, AudioBooks, and eBooks. Oh, and Library books, too. **

As always, I expect to deviate from the TBR a bit, but here are the books I look forward to choosing from this month:

2020 May TBR

Though I haven’t had the best track record of reading the books off of my TBRs, especially as of late, I still hope to read all of the follow books. While it’s true that I’ve been finding it harder than usual to get into a book with everything going around right now, I’m hoping to push through it and read these (hopefully fantastic) books.

I also hope to read some books for the 2020 Asia Readathon. I’ll be making another post in the next couple of days around the books I plan to read for this and highly recommend joining if you’re interested. This Readathon is to inspire people to read more books by Asian Authors and runs throughout all of May.

2020 April TBR

It’s taken me a little longer than usual to get this up, but I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to read this month. With everything that’s going on, I find myself having a harder time sitting down and just reading. Luckily, the weather is getting nicer and my parents have comfortable outdoor furniture. This month I plan on taking full advantage of that, reading in the backyard while Yzma runs around like the goof she is.

2020 March TBR

This is the month that I finish a bunch of the books that I started reading and haven’t finished yet. Did that sound convincing to you? Yeah, me either…. Either way, most of my TBR for this month is going to be books I’ve picked up and put back down before really giving them a shot, or ones that I’m currently in the middle of reading. Because I’m trash and currently have 6 books on the go. Not sure how I manage to keep all the plots straight in my head, but it’s worked out pretty well for me this far. I’m not saying it’s a good habit to get into, because it’s probably not, but alas it’s one I’ve been stuck with for years now.

2020 February TBR

If I haven’t proven it by now, I’ve got to admit that I’m not very good at following my TBRs. That being said, here are the books I hope to get to in February. There are a couple here that I didn’t get to in January and a couple new reads that I plan on getting to this month. Without rambling on too much, here are the books that I plan on reading in February 2020:

2020 January TBR

With a new year comes new reading goals. As always, my Goodreads goal for 2020 is going to be 100 books, which means an average of just over 8 books a month. With that in mind, I’ve created the following TBR for the month of January.

December TBR

As the year comes to a close, I figured I’d try to get as many of the books I’ve previously had on my TBRs completed. This means that my December TBR is going to be longer than normal. However, I’m not going to put as much pressure on myself to complete this list. Instead, my monthly goal will be to read as many of these titles as I can.

Of course, I’ll be planning my reading around work and the holiday season, so I don’t think I’ll be able to get all of these read. My prediction is I’ll get maybe 8 or 9 books from this list read (if I’m lucky). After all, the holidays mean family time – and I’m willing to sacrifice some reading for that. And, of course, I added a couple new books to the list – I couldn’t help myself!

Once again, I’ve placed a nice mix of Physical Books, AudioBooks, and eBooks.

So, how crazy long is this TBR?

November TBR

What’s a TBR if not meant to be broken? (Cue awkward laugh) In all seriousness, I know I’m not the best at keeping true to the TBRs I post, but I still find them helpful when I’m not sure what I want to read. Besides that, I feel a sense of accomplishment when I finish a book that I actually planned on reading.

After having such a successful reading month in October, I’m hoping to follow along the same path – have a small TBR so as to not stress over reads and give myself lots of freedom to pick up anything. With easy goals to reach, I know I can get at least most of the way there – and I won’t finish the month off feeling like I didn’t do enough. Reading isn’t that fun when you’re forcing yourself to do it. Instead, I plan to cuddle up with little miss Yzma and a good book and enjoy every world I have the pleasure of being in – if only for a little while.

For simplicity’s sake – and to help me remember when I check back on my TBR when I want to pick up a book – I’ve colour coded what format the book is in. There’s a mix of physical books, AudioBooks, and eBooks – just to keep things interesting (for myself, of course).

Enough of my blathering on, here are the books I plan to read in November:

September TBR

While I haven’t posted a TBR in a couple of months, I’m ready to start this back up again. I know I don’t stay 100% true to these lists when I post them, but at least they give me some guidance as to what I want to get read. I also find that TBRs help reduce my indecisiveness when faced with 400+ books to choose from. It’s nice to switch things up every once in a while, but it’s also nice to have a place to look should I want to grab a book without having too think too hard about it.

As I’ve just gotten a new fur baby (pictured below), I plan on having a lot more downtime at home where I can chill out with my girl Yzma as get some quality reading done. What’s better than sitting with a good book, a warm cup of tea, and a cuddly puppy?
