I don’t normally do TBRs but after participating in a month-long readathon, I feel a bit lost with all these options. So I decided to give myself some guidelines and create a TBR. Mostly out of desperation and feeling a bit un-hinged. I need structure! There will be no fae this month. But there will be diversity and variations.
I’ve set myself 6 books I have to read. Of those three are fairly short, and two I’ve already started, leaving me with one medium-sized book. I should be able to do this easily. I have therefore added a Hoping-To-Get-To list at the bottom in case I run out of stuff to read.
Two For My ReadHarder Challenge
I’ve already done a few books for this challenge, but its a total of 24 books so I need to keep this going. In February I read one… therefore I’m reading two in March.
The Story of Doctor Doolittle by Hugh Lofting – as the book for “A Children’s Classic Published Before 1980”. The book was originally published in 1920 so well within the timeframe.
Hunger by Knut Hamsun – as the book for “An Assigned Book You Hated (Or Never Finished)”. It’s a book I never finish as we only read an extract in school. It is also a classic book for realism and Norwegian literature. I’m unfortunately reading it in English (I’m sorry!!), because it was free on Kindle…
Two From My Physical Shelf
Because my overflowing physical shelf desperately needs thinning and unhauling, ASAP!
The Princess Bride by William Goldman – Technically this is also a book for the ReadHarder Challenge as “A Classic Of Genere Fiction” but its mainly part of the lack of space on my shelf.
Akata Witch by NNedi Okorafor – I’m very excited to read this!!
Two I Need To Finish Already!
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – I only have 2 and a bit hours left on this audiobook and its been like that for the last month. I really need to finish it! Like now. I do feel like something bad going happen soonish which is probably why I haven’t listened to it in a month… but this is it. I need to finish it. Now! I need to know that they will be happy in the end.
The Power by Naomi Alderman – I borrowed this on Libby (library app) but I got so caught up in Faebruary that it got returned before I finished it. So I’ve put it on hold again (because it’s very popular) hoping I will finish it in March because it was really good! But it all depends on the book becoming available on Libby.
Hoping To Get To
I should just put a link to my Goodreads Want-To-Read list here but I narrowed it down to these 4 books. It was hard…
Magic Study by Maria V Snyder – I need to continue with the series, before life, TBR and all other things get in the way. I want to read this.
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton – This sounds amazing and really deep. It’s not just about beauty and looks, but also slavery, all surrounded in a fantasy setting. I can’t wait to get to it.
I have also preordered Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi which gets released in the UK on 8th March. After I’ve read both The Belles and Akata Witch I will probably be utterly hooked and continue with Children of Blood and Bone.
The Gentleman’s Guided To Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee – I mainly want to read this book due to a review I read by Ofthestartssblog. In this book, there is a character called Felicity, who is asexual, like me, and slaps sexism in the face, like me. So it will be really interesting to read this book, due to Felicity. I really hope I like her 🤔
So that’s it guys! Let me know your thoughts in the comments. Have you read any of these before? What did you think? No spoilers please!
Now you’ll excuse me but I have reading to do…
