In previous years I have been creating a list of books to read based on my age, but I have not always been good about actually reading those books. However, this year I have decided to not do that and instead I’m going to try to read 23 specific books since it is 2023. I’m hoping that this is a more manageable number for me, but I guess we’ll see. I’m going to list the books down below. Let me know if you have read any of them, and which ones I should prioritize.
I didn’t do a TBR in May because I had disappointed myself the previous month by not achieving all of the TBR challenge prompts I was supposed to do. I didn’t do that in May either. I technically read books that applied to all the prompts but I didn’t read all of the books I had planned for the prompts. However, I still kind of wanted to do this post because I like talking about the books that I’m going to read. So I will do so below the cut. However, I want to emphasize that I don’t plan on reading all of these, but I know I will get to a fair few of them.
After a stellar reading month in February, I’m excited to jump into the month of March and to see what books I’ll read then. I’m participating in the TBR Tackle Challenge once more, and I’m definitely excited because it’s made me check off a lot of books from my TBR even two months into the year.
February is going to be a busier month for me as my schedule changes at school and I have more courses to teach. However, I’m still hoping to get a fair amount of reading done, and I might have a somewhat ambitious TBR as a consequence. I’m going to list the books I’m planning on reading below the cut.
I’m a bit late to the game, but I have a pretty decent TBR for January. I had an excellent reading year in 2020, and while I know that I won’t surpass my reading total, I’m excited for the wide open potential of a new reading year. So I felt like it would be fun to go over my January TBR. **Disclaimer, I have already read a few of these books.
I can’t believe it’s November and this year is almost over. I noticed this month that I am a little bit behind on some of my reading plans, so I’m hoping to check a few more books off my 28th year TBR and my ABCs reading challenge. You’ll find my reading plans below the cut.
I cannot believe it’s October already!!! It’s been a crazy year, but I’m excited to load my TBR up with some spooky books! I’m also going to be participating in Sbooktober which is hosted by Paper Faerie, and some others. I’m not sure if doubling up on prompts is okay for that readathon, but I’m going to roll with it and that’s what I’m doing.
August is kind of a catch up reading month for me, because I brought home a whole bunch of books from my classroom and school library and only dipped into a couple during July. It meant that I have a whole bunch still left to read for August, so I never made a TBR post at the start of the month. However, I’ve since decided to participate in the ScallywagAThon, which is hosted by HardbackHoarder, Paper Faerie, and Read All the Books.
I’m so excited about my summer vacation even though I’m not necessarily doing all that much this summer. I do, however, plan on getting a lot of reading done this summer though and try to keep myself entertained. I’m looking forward to all my summer reads. So what am I reading in July? You’ll find it below the cut.
I’m so excited about June because Kari and I are hosting another round of The Loyal Book-a-Thon. I really have a lot of fun planning these readathons with her, and I always have a lot of fun reading for them. We try to keep them flexible and allow for doubling up of prompts and maximum flexibility. People always have things going on and we don’t want it to be overwhelming. I know for me that I will probably have less reading time than usual because as of today, I’ll have to start going back to work and being in the building part time during the week. I’m excited to see my students, but it does mean less listening to audiobooks as I work through the day.
