End of 2016 Fake-Ish TBR I Wish I Could Follow

Posted November 16, 2016 / Book Lists, Features, TBR Lists / 9 Comments

2016-tbr-perfectIn a perfect world, I would finish off all of my reading challenges without any issue.
In a perfect world, all of these books would be books I owned.
In a perfect world, my reading mojo would be 100% back with no hesitations.

Of course it’s not a perfect world and the likelihood I actually get to these books – not only the amount of books here but the actual titles here – is so tiny. I’m terrible about sticking to a TBR in the first place, let alone a short term TBR to finish off all of my challenges before the end of the year. It’s just unlikely. You know how much I love pulling together TBR posts even if I don’t actually get to the books. So! A few things I wish I could finish off include…

  • Rock My TBR Challenge – Read 9 more books that I own to complete the challenge of 25
  • Must Read in 2016 – Read the rest of the books (6) on my “must read list” for this year
  • Bookish Bingo (Fall) – Read 6 books in the specific categories to fill the bingo card by end of November

I can definitely find a way to combine this in as many ways as possible; I could read one book that fits into all three categories if I’m smart about it. The only restrictions are really the specific books I selected to read this year. Regardless of all of these silly rules I place on myself, here we go…

End of November

So I guess there’s a tiny chance I make this happen? The biggest issue is that the 6 books for Bookish Bingo have to happen by the end of November, so there’s less flexibility for when I read them. That also means I have to finish 6 books within the next half of the month. It looks like December will be full of my Must Read in 2016 Challenge, and luckily many of those are owned books for Rock My TBR!

  1. I am TERRIBLE at sticking to a list too!! I just can’t read books I’m not in the exact mood for. AND I have so many that I’m hoping to read before the end of 2016 also. I know the end of the year doesn’t really mean anything, but it feels like a hard end and starting date to me. The Forgetting, Replica, and The Amateurs are 3 that are on that list. I’ve always been curious about This is Your Afterlife. I hope you read it, so I can see what you think 🙂

  2. Girl Before a Mirror is an amazing book! I absolutely loved that one, and I do hope you get to it before the year ends. Good luck with all the reading! <3
