October TBR

Autumn is most definitely here. It’s jumper weather, soup is on the menu, and I am curling under the blanket at night more often than I am not. I love this time of year, especially for reading, and I am so ready! I struggled a little with reading in September after what was a reading packed summer, and I’m feeling ready for some fall stories. I really love this time of year and I have a lot of early starts this month that should leave time for me to read in the afternoons before Emma gets home.

Once again, we’re going on holiday again this month. We’re away for a little longer this time, off to enjoy the sunny temperatures in Florida and to introduce Emma to Disney. As we’re not going until the back end of the month, I am probably going to do a holiday TBR that will see me into November too.

September/Holiday TBR

It’s September, fall is round the corner, the world is gearing up for jumpers and pumpkin spiced lattes, and I am going on holiday. I have been eagerly awaiting September for a while, and although I am not someone who usually wishes the summer away in a quick whirl of sunshine and ice creams, I am very glad it’s here! This month, I am tackling books I have bought and been sent over the past few weeks and months, and I am diving in with the knowledge that nothing needs to fit a readathon challenge. I love a good readathon, but I am also a mood reader, so this month I have decided that I am just going to read what I want when I fancy!

I am also jetting off to Barcelona for 5 days! We aren’t taking checked luggage, so anything I take to read must be able to fit into carry on with all of my clothes etc. so I have tried to think ahead and take a mix of paperbacks and digital ARCs. You’re probably wondering how I plan to read that much in a great city like Barcelona, well, there is a good 5 hours of plane time that will allow some reading, and I shift through books when I am able to stress free read and enjoy them. There’s a beach, and there’s going to be lots of free-time and chillaxing, things that are vastly improved by a good story, so with that in mind I am planning ahead! Any potential holiday read has a little sun next to it!

June TBR

At the end of June, we’re half way through the year. Yes, that’s right, we’re nearly halfway done with 2018 which is frankly quite scary. Don’t get me wrong I’ve been excited about the second half of this year for a long time and I am excited for it to come, but it’s kind of scary that it’s here already. I haven’t read nearly as many books this year at this point as I had last year, and even though I know it’s not a competition, I know I haven’t been reading much lately and that is irritating me. I do feel like things are getting better with reading, it’s all about the right book at the right time.  Continue reading “June TBR”

May TBR

We’re already a third of the way through the year, the sun is finally starting to shine more regularly and the temperatures are warming up. It’s the perfect time to start thinking about sitting with a book in the park, or by the river, on an afternoon stroll. I just finished writing my wrap up post, and wasn’t too impressed at the amount I read, so I am aiming high with an ambitious May TBR that should be useful when it comes to writing a TBR for Bout of Books 22 (you should all sign up!).  Continue reading “May TBR”
