Monthly TBR – May 2022 (May the Force Read with You Readathon Edition)

Hello, everyone! Happy Star Wars Day! In honor of the day, today’s post is my TBR for May, which centers around the May the Force Read with You Readathon created by Breakeven Books. I was so excited to find this readathon because I wanted to do something Star Wars related this month. I’ve chosen to walk the path to the dark side, which has five levels. To become a Dark Lord of the Sith, I need to develop five force abilities (AKA read five books). Along the way I plan to build my team of allies and my weapons collection by reading even more books. This TBR is a mix of ARCs I really need to get to and books that have been on previous TBRs, along with a couple recent releases. I’m behind on ARCs for the first time, and it’s making me anxious. So, I’m going to try to get caught up on everything this month… I’m also looking forward to finally (hopefully) getting to Little Thieves and Victory’s Price since I’ve been wanting to read them since last year.

If you are interested in learning more about the readathon and the prompts, I’ve embedded the announcement video below. There is also a pdf of the different prompts available in the video description on Youtube.

May the force be with you!

TBR: April 2022 (Magical Readathon & Mythothon Edition)

Hello, everyone! I’ve been really struggling the last few days to pick what I want to read next. I’ve been so excited about these two readathons for a while, and now that they are here I’m kind of in a slump, which has me bummed. I’ve finally settled on some choices, but I think many of these will likely change as the month progresses. I’m really in the mood to mood read, but I’m going to try to stick to these as closely as I can because they are mostly ARCs/tour obligations. (Edit note: The first two books I’ve started for this month since initially writing this post are not on these lists. lol. So, I’m off to a great start…)

I’m participating in two readathons this month, Magical Readathon and Mythothon. You can find my picks for each down below along with a little more info about each readathon!

TBR: March 2022 (Trope-ical Readathon Edition)

Hello, everyone! This month’s TBR post is going to be focused on the books I plan to read for the Trope-ical Readathon. For this readathon, I’ve picked books corresponding to 15 different prompts (or their alternates), which are based on common tropes found in fiction. I decided to join Team Fantasy again this time because I was most interested in reading its team book and liked the team challenges. You can find out all about the readathon here, and you can still sign up through March 6th. So, if it sounds like something you’d be interested in, go sign up!

Here are all of the common challenges/prompts:

TBR: February 2022

Hello, everyone! It is the start of another month, which means it is time again to plan out what I want to read. I’m not participating in any readathons again this month. So, I’m mostly picking these books based on what ARCs need to be reviewed and what books I’m in the mood to read.

In total, I want to read 12 books in February 2022 despite this being a shorter month. I have a ton of ARCs to get through, and one of my library holds came in way earlier than I expected. So, rather than take anything off the list, I’m just gonna try to power through it all. We’ll see how it goes. I’m also going to be reading The Obelisk Gate by N. K. Jemisin along with other members of The Oasis Discord channel, which I’m excited about because I’ve wanted to finish this trilogy for the last five years. I’m finally moving on to book two!

TBR: January 2022

Hello, everyone! It is the start of another month, which means it is time again to plan out what I want to read. I’m not participating in any readathons this month. So, I’m mostly picking these books based on what ARCs need to be reviewed and what books I’m in the mood to read.

In total, I want to read at least 10 books in January 2022 to start the year off strong. I have several ARCs to get through this month, and there are a couple new/recent releases I really want to get to, as well. I’m also going to be reading The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin along with other members of The Oasis Discord channel. I’ve already finished one book this month, Of Darkness and Light by Ryan Cahill, that I started prior to the end of last year. Since I’m already done with it, I’m not including it in my goal of 10 books.

Reindeer Readathon TBR (December 2021)

Hello, everyone! It is the beginning of a new month, which means it is time to sort out what I plan to read. This month is extra special because I am participating in the Reindeer Readathon as part of team Nutcracker! You can find out more about the readathon by checking out the announcement video or the Twitter account. It is a competitive, team-based readathon with a set of nine prompts corresponding to the nine reindeer that pull Santa’s sleigh. You can find my picks (and their synopses) for all nine prompts below!

TBR: November 2021 Reading List

Hello, everyone! It is the start of another month, which means it is time again to plan out what I want to read. I’ve decided to continue with the more flexible TBR approach I switched back to last month. So, I won’t be participating in a readathon this month; although, I should probably be participating in NetGalley November. lol.

In total, I want to read at least 8 new books in November 2021. I may end up reading more than this, but 8 is a comfortable number for me that I think is achievable. In addition to the new 8, I plan to read the one book left over from last month’s TBR, Before We Disappear.

TBR: October 2021 Reading List

Hello, everyone! It is the start of another month, which means it is time again to plan out what I want to read. I’m not participating in a readathon this month. After the last couple months, I’ve decided to take a break this month to keep things more flexible. So, I’ll be reverting back to my old format for my TBR where I pick a set number of books I want to read with approximately half of the titles pre-planned. The other half will be based on my mood as the month progresses.

TBR: September 2021 (Magical Readathon Edition)

Hello, everyone! I can’t believe it is already September! The six month anniversary of my blog is approaching quickly. The time really flies. I’ve decided to participate in another readathon this month after having so much fun with the Trope-ical Readathon last month. The Magical Readathon is happening throughout September, and it looks amazing. The organizer created an entire world and story for this readathon, and I am excited to get to make my own character for it. It is also much more my speed with only seven prompts. So, I’m fairly certain I can complete them all.

TBR: August 2021 (Trope-ical Readathon Edition)

Hello, everyone! This month’s TBR post is going to be quite different from previous ones because I am participating in the Trope-ical Readathon. For this readathon, I’ve picked books corresponding to 15 different prompts (or their alternates), which are based on common tropes found in fiction. I decided to join Team Fantasy this time because I love the genre and plan to read mostly fantasy this month. The team book also caught my eye, which clenched the decision and rounded out my TBR with 16 total books. You can find out all about the readathon here, and you can still sign up through August 8th. So, if it sounds like something you’d be interested in, go sign up!

Here are all of the common challenges/prompts:
