TBR Round-up

Hi friends! Today I thought I’d do a round-up of all the TBRs I’ve posted. I’m a big mood reader, but I also like to set TBRs to kind of keep me on track. So I thought it’d be fun to go back and see how many of the books I put on my TBRs I’ve actually read. Also, this was inspired by Destiny’s posts, which I definitely recommend checking out! The posts are in order of when I posted them.

July/August 2017 TBR

  • Caraval by Stephanie Garber: read!
  • The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf: not read. It was taking me forever to get through this book, so I put it down. I do think I’ll try to reread it again, though. It’s still on my TBR.
  • The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: read!
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman: read, but not this month.

  • The Help by Kathryn Stockett: read!
  • Between You and Me by Lisa Hall: read!
  • The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf: still not read lmao
  • The Queen of Katwe by Tim Crothers: not read. Idk why but it was taking me ages to read this. I think I’ll just watch the movie tbh.

So overall, not as bad as I thought! I have six that are still on my TBR, but I’ve read all the others. So I consider this a success!

Have you read any of these? Which should I prioritise? Do you use TBRs? Let me know!!

Thanks for reading! xx

  1. I did a graph in my end of 2018 wrap-up that counted all the books I put on various TBRs during the year, and whether I read them. Only just over a third of the books I read during the year were on my intended TBR. The rest were either new books or others I just picked up that I wasn’t intending on reading!

  2. Ah, I love seeing these from Destiny so I was super excited to see that you did one too! I don’t so many TBRs so it would be more difficult for me to do one, but I definitely have a few I could reflect on. 🙂
