It’s time to pick a new challenge TBR, and after a month of mostly romance reading, I’m ready to tackle some fantasy and sci fi! This month’s theme is ‘A is for August’, by which I mean I’ve chosen twelve books from the TBR with titles that start with A. Let’s see what’s on the list!

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!Continue reading “June TBR Challenge: Just Get On With It”

April Reading Challenge: Spring Cleaning My TBR
This might seem a little bit strange, but my TBR challenge for April is to read books that I’m pretty sure I’m not going to enjoy that much. Like most people, when the sunshine returns I get the itch to tidy up, so it seems like a good time to filter through my bookshelves and try to leave only the books I really do love – plus, with my birthday at the end of the month, it’s always a good idea to make some space in case I get any new books!
I’ve chosen twelve books that I’ve either been putting off reading because my tastes have changed, or I suspect I’ll have fun with but not want to reread. Some might surprise me and make the cut, but there might also be a few DNFs if I really don’t click with them. Please don’t be angry with me if you spot a favourite here: everyone’s tastes are personal and this list is not meant to be things I think are bad books in themselves, just things I’m no longer sure I’ll love personally!
