Look at me, being like a Real Reader who has internet access, posting a true and proper TBR (to-be-read, if you were confused) list for the month of September! I’m a little pleased with myself for it because, thanks to the lovely and good influence of my very dear friend, I am both addicted to #booktube, #bookstagram, and (on an unrelated note but still her influence) have just started to keep a Bullet Journal*.
It’s like making a New Year’s Resolution on September 1, really.
And I’m fine with that. Who wants to do things whenever everybody else does them? Not me, that’s who!
Anyway, it’s time to get start and do more than just post book reviews. Which is not to knock the posting of book reviews. I love reading book reviews. I love reading books. Writing book reviews is a bit trickier but that’s what I do. Let’s say the challenge is nice. So I will, worry not, keep posting reviews of 98%** of the books I read.
But I’m not going to be filming videos of myself, not now or probably ever, even talking about books. And I do post some #bookstagram photos on Instagram (@nilyov) and I’d like to think I’m getting better at it. But writing is what I’m best at so…
Here we are.
Eventually getting back to the point of this darn post.
My September 2018 TBR
Let’s do it. First, let me say that I have a Goodreads goal of 60 books this year. I made that on January 1. Ish. I don’t really remember, but I do know I haven’t altered it. Haven’t altered it despite being a whopping 8 books behind at one point! But I have, thanks to miracles I’d rather not question, accepting is always better, caught up! Go me! This means I’m on schedule and have a baseline goal of six books I need to read this month.
And they are… *bangs drums*
- The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
- Virgil Wander by Leif Enger
- Me and Me by Alice Kuipers
- The Kennedy Debutante by Kerri Maher
- The Accident on the A35 by Graeme Macrae Burnet
- Shell by Kristina Olsson
These are also six books I need to read (though technically only the first is required of September) because they are ARCs and/or so kindly granted by publishers through NetGalley, a Goodreads giveaway, and BookishFirst and are scheduled to be released in October (again, Turton’s book is scheduled for September although… it seems like maybe it was already released in England and/or Canada?
I’d like to read more books, because I love books, but those six are goals and we’ll see what happens. Why? Because I’m going to a proper social media book person and post a wrap-up in 30 days, that’s why. Woot!
Anyway, that’s my TBR for September so, if there’s anybody here actually reading, any thoughts? What are you reading this month? Please do discuss with me!
