Monthly TBR

August 2020 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! August is here and with August comes a new tbr, and an update. This month will hopefully be an easy going month. Usually, I make my tbr packed with books I want to read or accomplish reading for the month, but I’m deciding to be more gentle with myself. And more gentle with my tbr. Hopefully I’ll be able to read all of these books! Also, in the month of August there are two big readathons happening right now, ARC August and A-spec August. I hope you end up participating in some of these and I can’t wait to see your tbrs!

As for the update, let’s rip the band-aid right off. Honestly, I was hoping to feel comfortable to come back into the book community stronger and better, but… that’s just not the case. I’m still going to be on lock down for the month of August and might even extend it into September. There’s a lot of things happening that have made me very unsafe, uncomfortable in the book community, and I’m not in a position where I feel comfortable talking about it right now. So as of right now, I’m taking it one day at a time and hopefully I’ll return. I also realize there are so many wonderful new people here in my little corner of the book community. I’m so glad you’re here and I appreciate you so, so much for supporting me. It truly means a lot. I promise, when I come back into the community, brighter and better, that I’ll have an introduction to the content creator post. For now, I love you all so much, I’m so happy you’re here, now let’s get into my tbr for August!

I feel like this list should’ve reflected my desire for spooky season just a little bit more. I’m just ready for fall to be here already, but for now we have to get through August. I’m so excited for my August tbr. As I’m making this post, I’ve started the audiobook of Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall. Most of the books I’m reading for this month are arcs and some of them come out really soon. But that wraps everything up for my August tbr. I hope you enjoyed this list, maybe some of these books caught your eye. Let me know down in the comments below what you’re reading for the month of August or link your tbrs. Until the next time we chat, may the month of August bring you wonderful reading, I hope you continue to stay safe and healthy, I love you! 💛

Monthly TBR

October 2019 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! I can’t believe we’re finally in my favorite month of the year, October! I’m ready for spooky things, binge watching all the Halloween movies, and dressing up in all the costumes! But aside from that, I’m excited to finally curl up with a cup of hot coco and read some good books! I’ll admit, September has left me in a whirl wind of playing catch up and to be honest, I’ve gone a little overboard on the books for the month of October. I mean, I really went overboard this time. But that’s okay! I’m going to do my best to read all of these books and get as many off my tbr cart, ASAP!

This month is a little different though! The end of September still has me catching up on reviews, hauls, and basically everything. And since I’m playing catch up, that also includes catching up on taking photos. That means my tbr photo hasn’t even been taken yet. It also hasn’t been taken yet because I have an overly ambitious tbr for this month and I have no idea how I would even fit that into one photo. But it’s fine, it’s fine! We’re getting this tbr up and that’s all that matters! I promise, I will get that tbr photo up as soon as possible, but in the meantime, I hope you still enjoy my tbr for the month of October!
