This Week’s Topic:
I’ve never been very good at making TBR lists, because I always fail at reaching my goal. Sometimes I ended up too busy reading books for all my literature classes. Sometimes I even strayed from the list after purchasing a book that looked so good I started reading it immediately. I think my biggest problem is -try as I might- I can’t read more than one book at a time unless the two books are completely different. (For example, I can’t read to fantasy fiction novels, or they’ll start melding together. I can, however, read a fantasy fiction piece while also reading a historical fiction book.)
Because I never finished my TBR lists, I stopped making them. The only one I regularly make now is a “Summer Reading List.” Since I’m usually no longer in school during the summer, I have more free time to read. This list helps me catch up on some of the books I desperately need to get to.
Do you keep a TBR list? Does it help or hinder your reading routine? Leave a comment below.
