I always find sticking to a TBR difficult because I am very much a mood reader. Last month, I read three of the six books I put on my TBR for February, which is actually quite good for me. Having a TBR is still helpful to me though, because I like to have goals, and it helps me keep track of everything.
Books I want to read this month:
- A Conjuring of Light – by V.E. Schwab – this is one of my most anticipated releases of the year, if I’ve not read it by the end of the month, it will only be because I don’t want this series to be over.
- Wintersong – by S. Jae-Jones – I was hoping to get to this last month, it’s been sat on my bedside table waiting. I am really in the mood for this, but I don’t want to start it before I’ve finished the books I’m currently reading.
- A Quiet Kind of Thunder – Sara Barnard – I picked this up in February after reading so many glowing reviews, it’s quite a short book, so I’m hoping to squeeze it in soon.
- Traitor to the Throne – Alwyn Hamilton – Another highly anticipated release that I am just dying to get to. I’m just not sure whether I should reread Rebel of the Sands first or not.
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone – by J.K. Rowling – I am long overdue a reread of the Harry Potter series, and I picked up the first book the other day when I went on the studio tour. (I never had my own copies, I just read my Mums when I was younger)
- Pantomime – by Laura Lam – I’m really intreagued by this series, I haven’t heard much said about it, but now all the books are out, I want to dive in.
Review books I will definitely be reading this month:
- Defy the Stars – by Claudia Gray
- The Upside of Unrequited – by Becky Albertalli
Of course apart from the review books, some of this could change, my list is quite ambitious for me, but I hope that at the end of March I’ll look back and see that I got through at least a few of these books. February was chaotic with quite a few medical appointments and meeting with mortgage advisors and similarly stressful goings on. March is hopefully going to be a lot less hectic, so hopfully that will mean more time for reading.
