Sooo I have a fraught relationship with TBRs – I’m generally good at sticking to them if it’s for a short-term thing, i.e. a readathon, but if it’s a month-long or (worse still) year-long, I promptly forget about every single book I wanted to read as soon as I write it down on some form of TBR. Like I said, “fraught” would probably be an apt descriptor.
However, as I’ve been drawing out my monthly bullet journal spreads thus far this year, I’ve happened to include a page for that month’s TBR. Sure, I do add to the page throughout the month if I decide to read something that wasn’t originally on there, but I also still really try to think ahead and plan what I want to read for the upcoming month. So as I was drawing out my fresh spreads for March, I thought if I’m doing this anyway – and, let’s face it, making it quite permanent considering it’s right there, in my bullet journal, in black ink – why not also tell my blog/the internet about it and give myself even more accountability? ‘Why not’ indeed.
Handily, this isn’t just your average March TBR though, it’s also a TBR for a readathon, specifically Zoe’s 24-hour long readathon, aptly named Readathon by Zoe, which is happening this Saturday, 3rd March. Hopefully setting a TBR for both a very short-term goal that is that readathon and for the whole of March will play to my strengths and I’ll manage to actually stick to said TBRs. If I don’t, well, then this post was just a nice indication of what books I felt like reading at this present moment in time, a snapshot of my reading taste at this point in the year, if you will. We shall see…
