February TBR Challenge: Finish It Up Feb

This is pretty much the opposite of last month’s challenge – in February I want to finish some series that I’ve had ongoing for a while! I’ve picked six sequels where I’m eager to know how things end. Want to see what they are?

Mid-Month Check In: New Year, New Starts

Just a very quick check-in today, as I’ve been in such a reading slump for the last couple of weeks! Still, I’ve managed to tick off three of my books, so here are some very short thoughts on them:

January TBR Challenge: New Year, New Starts

In the spirit of fresh starts, this month I thought I’d focus in on starting some new series that I’ve been meaning to get to for a while! I’ve chosen six books that kick off duologies, trilogies or longer series, and I’m starting them all to see if I want to continue on, or if I can take the rest of the series off my shelves.

November TBR Challenge: Non-Stop NetGalley

My NetGalley shelves are really getting out of hand, so this month my TBR challenge is going to be focused on reading some of the books I’ve been sent e-ARCS of (and in many cases physical review copies too!) and getting those reviews logged. For several years now I’ve run a mini-challenge of #NonStopNetGalley over on Twitter, so that’s what’s going to be happening all month! I’ve picked out nine of the NetGalley books I’m most excited for – want to see what we’ve got?

August TBR Challenge: A is for August Mid-Month Check In

I’ve had a bit of a slow start to August – between a writing deadline and a reading slump I think it was the 7th before I finished a book! However, I’ve made a little bit of progress on my challenge TBR (see here for the introduction post), so here are some quick thoughts on the five books I’ve got to so far:

June TBR Challenge: Just Get On With It

Can you hear the exasperation in that title?! As you’ll have no doubt seen if you read my May Wrap Up post yesterday, I’ve really been struggling to get my TBR down in the last few months. I’ve been so hectically busy with other projects that my reading rate has fallen below my books-in rate, so this month I’ve decided to focus on a few books that feel like they’re looming large on my to-do list – not necessarily long books, but just things I keep thinking about. I’m also dropping the number to just nine books, as the last couple of months I haven’t managed to finish longer TBRs, and I can always add more later if I need to!
