Tackling the TBR [3]: April 2017

Well, March is finally over and I have to tell you I am thrilled to begin the next month! I requested and won some fabulous books, most of them from different genres than I usually read. That’s right, I am taking my challenge to ‘read outside the box’ very seriously! I have a feeling at least some of these will be very pleasant surprises.

However you put together your TBR for the next month, the goal is to reduce the amount of obligation in reading and increase the fun.

Here’s a look at how the system works:

1. Identify the titles that take top priority in your TBR.
2. Combine them all in your own Tackling the TBR post.
3. Throughout the month pick from that pile as the mood strikes you.

Tackling the TBR [2]: March 2017

Welcome to my second Tackling the TBR post!

From now on I shall try to read one paperback per month, so I included three in this post (the final row of my Tackler shelf).

I am looking forward to reading all other six as well and I have started with Roanoke Girls as I like to get my Blogging for Books novels out of the way first but there are several carry-overs that I want to dig into as well so ahh decisions, decisions!

What do you think of my list? Do you have one? Please post a link!

Tackling the TBR [1]: February 2017

I recently found this and I have to say I think it is an amazing idea to help plan my reads while not feeling obligated to read specific books. Let me know what you think in the comments section!

All this month’s selections are from Netgalley.
