Am I the only person who has a massive TBR pile that only seems to get bigger? It feels that way sometimes! This month I wanted to share with you all my TBR, or To-Be-Read, for the month of July.
Since I have so many books (over 900!), I wanted to come up with a fun way to pick the books to read for each month instead of just trying to randomly guess what sounds good at the time.
I chose 10 books that I would try to read this month! They’re sorted into different categories based on how they were picked for the month and where they come from!
The first books I have on my list are the ARCs I received recently that are going to be published in July or the beginning of August and so need to be read this month!
The first is a NetGalley book called The Tarot Cafe; it’s a manga collection that I thought sounded incredibly interesting and I wanted to check out what I thought of it! The second book was from FirsttoRead, and it’s called The Boy at the Door.
The next two books are rollovers from June that I haven’t finished and want to complete in July! The first book is I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and the second is Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World.
Those four were the books that I had to add to my July TBR for one reason or another. The next six are all books that I had a lot of fun finding! I decided to use a random number generator for all the books on my GoodReads to-read shelf, and find the book that corresponded with the number I chose.
Two books I got randomly were both books on my physical TBR shelf in my apartment! I was definitely excited to see that. The first was Why Not Me? (715) and the second was My Life Starring Mum (504). I’ve owned both for quite a while so it’ll be nice to read them and hopefully move them out!
This month I only had one book that I didn’t own & had to get from the library, which was Old Yeller (190). I’ve watched & read enough dog books and movies to know that I will cry at the end of this, but I don’t remember ever reading this before and I want to do that!
Finally, I had three books randomly selected that were all digital NetGalley books I needed to read and review. The first is The Safe Word (673), then On Her Majesty’s Frightfully Secret Service (741), and finally Eternal Neverland: Steps Before the Fall (446).
I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get to every book this month, which means there might be some rollover to next month, but I will try my hardest!
What books are you reading this month?
