Down the TBR Hole #1

Down the TBR Hole (1)

Welcome to my very first Down the TBR Hole post! I’m super excited to try this out. As I explained in a recent discussion post, my TBR is way too long for its own good. I’ve tried tons of different techniques to lower my TBR, but nothing seems to work. So I’m (figuratively) crossing every appendage of my body in hopes that this meme helps.

And in case you’re not aware, Down the TBR Hole is a meme created by Lost in a Story that involves cleansing your TBR of all the books you no longer feel like reading. I’ll be featuring ten books at a time, and deciding if they should stay, or be removed!

I decided to start at the very bottom of my Goodreads to-read shelf, and work my way up. It should be fun to see what I put on there a million years ago!

Unpopular Book Opinions Tag

Unpopular Book Opinions Tag

Hello bookworms! Today I’m doing my first (I think it’s my first??) book tag! I know this one’s a bit older and most people have done it already, but I feel like I have some unique opinions and really wanted to try it myself. Hopefully this won’t be boring for you guys!

I wasn’t actually tagged to do this, but I saw it most recently done by Book Princess Reviews, and loved it! So I took the liberty of just doing it myself, lol.

Here we go! You can click on the photos of each book to see their Goodreads page.

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday

Hello fellow bookworms! Today I’m very excited to be participating in my first ever Waiting on Wednesday, a weekly blog meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that highlights upcoming book releases!

I don’t plan on trying to do this every week, since I struggle to post anything as it is, but hopefully once or twice a month!

How (Not) To Manage an Unmanageable TBR

How (Not) to Manage an Unmanageable TBR

Hello friends! Today I have an interesting post for you all, one that I’ve actually been wanting to write for a while. With all the ARCs I got at YALLFest recently, I figured now was the perfect time to discuss all the struggles of having an insane TBR!

First, I suppose I should define what I consider to be a TBR. For some readers, their To-Be-Read list is simply a list of all the books they have an interest in reading. This is what most people have on their Goodreads “Want to Read” shelf. I define my TBR as all the books that I own, but have not yet read. Those books are also what I put on my Goodreads TBR shelf. This is how I know that I currently have 148 unread books in my possession, either in print or e-book format.

I know, I know. I can practically hear the sounds of a child weeping and a helpless woman screaming for mercy over that atrocious number. How it got to be that way? Well, I started buying YA books on a regular basis in 2014. Then I kept buying. For three years. I don’t read nearly as fast as I’m able to buy, apparently.

You’re probably thinking, what can a person with such obviously bad TBR problems tell me about managing one? The truth is, I can’t. I really don’t know a sure-fire way to get your TBR under control, if there even is one. But I’ve also tried a fair number of gimmicks to limit my TBR, some of which have worked more than others. So I’m here today with a fancy list of non-examples to help you manage your TBR!

I’m Back! And With More Books to Read Than Ever

I'm Back! And With More Books to Read Than Ever

Ahhh I can’t tell you how good it feels to be typing away at a blog post again! I don’t think you’re able to truly appreciate something until you have to leave it behind for a while. For those of you that thought I left the book community for good, I don’t blame you! I went virtually dark on here and on my bookstagram. The only place you might’ve seen me lurking for the last month is Twitter. But hopefully I’m here to stay for a long while!
