July Wrap & August TBR (of sorts)

Hey everybody! (Hi Dr. Nick)

So my July TBR pile had four books on it… and I read five! Woop!

…except three of those five books weren’t even on my TBR pile, so technically I failed at completing it. Sigh. I’ve been struggling with sticking to my TBR piles – I’m fine for the first couple books, but then I go off track and feel guilty when I don’t read what I’m supposed to. Which is frankly ridiculous because the only person who actually cares is myself.

For these reasons I’m going to stop making lists of the exact books I want to read in a month – instead I’m going to name two or three (depending on their length, etc.) that I really want to get around to and set a number of books I want to read over that month. This way, I can be more flexible and ditch this absolutely pointless sense of guilt.

So anyways, this is what I read over the month of July:

A God in Ruinsreview

The Lies of Locke Lamorareview

The Muse review

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (review coming soon)

Attachmentsreview

 Overall, July was a great reading month for me – I thoroughly enjoyed all five of the books I read. 🙂

    I actually made the decision to ditch TBRs. I still have a huge to read list, but committing ahead of time was not working for me. I am sporadic and change moods on a whim so why do that do myself? I still aim for a certain number of reads at times, but no TBR. It is almost liberating in an odd way 😊

    I love your ideas about the TBRs. I always plan to read certain books, and most of the time I only read a few of them!! I think Harry Potter is on everyone’s August TBR list. I hope you enjoy it!!
