TBR? Who needs the stress! Plus A Little Life Update!

StepInto aBookWorld

I have been sitting here try to come with a TBR list for April and I am beginning to pull my hair out trying to decide what to pick out.

Finally I asked myself why am I even trying to do a TBR that I never seem to stick to.  I never end up following my TBR because I am staring to become more of a mood reader. I say I will read a book but then the mood strikes that I want to read something completely different.

So I had decided to take a stand for the little bit of hair I have left and look my “TBR” list in the face to say no more!

I know some people can read from a TBR list, but in this point in my life it just isn’t working. I am falling behind because I have been forcing myself to read books just because they are on my TBR list for that month. One of the reason I haven’t posted a review for a week. So maybe by sticking to my gut choice in my reading choice I will start to enjoy reading again and not have it feel like a job.

Life Update

I also wanted to take the time to mention that I will only be posting 3 to 4 days a week starting next week. I am lending more towards 3 because I am currently so busy. I have doctors appointment like crazy because they are trying to adjust my anxiety and depression medications, so that means when I am not running to the doctor office, or chasing my soon to be 3-year-old I am tired.

I hope you all understand and I appreciate each of you for standing by me and following me though this time in my life. You are all the best!

What are your thought on a monthly TBR?

Do you always follow them or end up changing it though the month?

Are you a mood reader too?

Let me know in the comments!

    1. Thank you so much. Yes I have been trying to stay on a scheduled TBR for a while and I agree it felt like a chore. It got to the point that I dread picking up a book or I wouldn’t get interested in what is probably a really good book. I am glad I am not alone. Thanks so much Kelly ❤

  1. Hope they all run smoothly! I totally get what you mean with TBRs, but I really like them because then I can plan out rereads before releases (because somehow I always forget things that happen haha)

  2. I used to try set a monthly tbr, but now I just kind of go with whatever I’m in the mood for! 🙂
    In my head I have an idea of books I want to read soon, but not really a set tbr for the month

  3. I ended up quitting monthly tbrs this year too! I found that I didn’t enjoy writing them and I wasn’t reading the books!
    I’ve found that now that I read whatever I want whenever I want, I actually read more and I enjoy what I’m reading a lot more!

  4. I am very much a list-follower and need a TBR to keep me on track, but my husband is a mood reader and can’t have a list at all. He just picks up whatever book sounds good, and he’s much happier for it than if he were to follow lists, so go for it! You should never force yourself to read what you don’t want to read. It should be for fun!
