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.


Last year finished with a lot of books left unread but new year, new opportunities!

Greetings, ladies and gents!

Last month I didn’t add much to my shelves – I requested several books from Netgalley but most requests were denied, so I ended up with one non-fiction book from them and one offered by the author to read and review.

Considering how long it is taking me to get through my pile I am content with that.

So here is my TBR pile for November!

Greetings, ladies and gents!

Fall has finally arrived and with it some spooky reads. I just noticed how dark the covers for my new additions are!

I still have a lot of catching up to do, particularly on my paperbacks. I am constantly chasing the elusive feedback rate on Netgalley so I tend to prioritise those books.

So here is my TBR pile for October!

August flew by and I didn’t manage to reduce my TBR by much.
On the upside I don’t have that many additions for September so, step by slow step, I will manage to reduce it!

OK, July went by WAY too fast. Seriously, I didn’t even see the end of the month coming!
I have a lot of catching up to do. Several have been piling up in my TBR list so I am holding up on requesting new ones.
In August I intend to read the Condition Trilogy and then we’ll see how it goes.
This is my current TBR!

Luckily I did not add too many books to my pile last month so I am slowly gaining control over my TBR pile.

I need to catch up on my paperbacks, which I plan to do this week since I will be away from work, yay!

Looking forward to some quality reading time and lots of peace and quiet.
