20 Books of Summer – let’s do this!

As a mood reader, I don’t participate in reading challenges or create TBRs. However, my goal this year is to get my physical TBR down to zero, and I’m already falling behind. When I saw that Caro @ CJR The Brit was doing this challenge, I decided to join as well to get myself back on track! This challenge was originally created by Cathy @ 746 Books.

The challenge is to read 20 books between June 1 (today!) and September 1. What drew me to this is that the rules are pretty lax. You don’t want to read 20 books? 10 books is fine, too! You want to switch out a title in your TBR? Sure, you can do that as well! You can really cater this to your wants/needs, and it seems like the sort of thing that can ease you into the reading challenge realm before getting to the hardcore stuff.

The Anti-TBR Tag

We know what a TBR is (to be read). A lot of bookworms have TBRs long enough to last a lifetime. But one thing I’ve never heard of in all my years as an online bookworm is an anti-TBR. When I saw this tag (originally created by Nicole @ Nicole & Her Books on YouTube), I was intrigued.

Basically, the questions revolve around books/authors that you wouldn’t put in your TBR (hence the name). I’ve seen other people’s answers to these questions, and some of them are s p i c y.

(Hopefully I won’t get cancelled by the end of this.)

Let’s get into it!

Let’s Talk: Favorite Book/Series

I’ll be honest: I don’t have a lot of non-internet friends that like to read. That means I don’t have a lot of people to talk to face-to-face about books, which is the whole reason why I started this blog. That being said, I’ve been wondering what everyone’s favorite book/series is and why, because I’ve been thinking about expanding my horizons and reading something I wouldn’t normally pick up (or maybe something I would read but never knew existed). Also, I’m going down the rabbit hole and trying to expand my TBR list to combat my ongoing TBR cleanse.

So now I ask: What is your favorite book or series and why?

TBR Cleanse – Kick or Keep? Pt. 8

I can’t wait to be done cleaning out my TBR… It’s so long that this series will take a while. I might start doing 20 books at a time instead of ten. Or maybe I’ll comprise a post about all the books I kick out of my TBR. I dunno. I’ll think about it later.

Regardless of what I’m going to do in the future, I’m excited to revisit these next 10 books in the list to see if they’ll make the cut.

Here are the rules to the “cleanse”:

  1. Choose the first 10 books in your TBR list.
  2. Read the blurb.
  3. Decide whether to keep it or “kick” it out of the list.
  4. Repeat with the next 10 books every week until you go through the whole list.

TBR Cleanse – Kick or Keep? Pt. 7

I’ll admit it. I definitely dropped the ball on this one. It was my own little personal project to make sure that my TBR was especially tailored to me, meaning that I had to get rid of the books that I no longer had interest in that has been sitting in my TBR for months or maybe even years.

TBR Cleanse – Kick or Keep? Pt. 6

I was going to say that I’m half way through this TBR cleanse but then I realized I did my math wrong and I’m no where close to half way through. Yikes. It’ll probably be 2019 by the time I’m finished with this series.

TBR Cleanse – Kick or Keep? Pt. 2

This is week 2 of my adventure of cleaning out my TBR to really tailor it to my preferences. I’m not sure how long this is going to take at the rate I’m going, but I hope to be done cleaning out my TBR by the end of this year. We’ll see if that happens.
