My monthly TBR feature here shows my progress based on last month’s TBR, my plans for this month, and anything else I might be thinking about from a reading perspective. Sometimes I feature a little poll at the bottom so you guys can help me figure out a certain title I should read from a group of books.
August, again, was terrible. I was somewhat busy but honestly it’s mostly just that I don’t prioritize reading. I got super into some new podcasts and listened to very little on audio. I only managed to read 7 books in August because THREE were cookbooks.
I am somehow still reading RULE OF WOLVES although I’m pretty sure “reading” is a strong word, since I’ve only read 2-3 chapters since the last time I wrote about this here. I do genuinely need to make a commitment to reading a chapter a day (or listening to an audio chapter) until it’s done. I’m also still working through THE INTUITIVE EATING WORKBOOK because it’s a little repetitive after reading the full book and working in my group coaching. It’ll get done eventually and be a quick boost to my reading numbers when it happens.
These are holdovers too, whoops. I got ARSENIC AND ADOBO in my recent BOTM package and it’s been sitting there! I’m excited to read it but I’ve been Kindle-addicted lately. I also got DONUTS AND OTHER PROCLAMATIONS OF LOVE from Laura (the author’s agent) and I’m so excited to finally have another book by Jared Reck in my hands!
I’ve got a lot of random backlist books that I was excited to request and read but haven’t gotten to yet because my reading has been so spotty. I hope to get to any of these next month still – mostly leftovers from August. THE ROYALS NEXT DOOR came out 8/31 so at least I’m not too late there!
I’m trying really hard to not get into 2022 releases yet (!!!) and these are both later in 2021. I’ve been really in a thriller mood lately so WISH YOU WERE GONE is a likely read for me, especially because I love Kieran Scott. WHERE THERE’S A WHISK seems super cute and up my alley for the next month perhaps!
I went through another big podcast phase over the past couple of months but there are a few audiobooks on Scribd I would love to get to at some point soon. ONE LAST STOP has been on here before and I never got around to it. MY CONTRARY MARY is the series-starter for another fun series by a trio of authors I’ve come to love. That’d be a fun audiobook to get into.
