    Fall TBR List

    I think it’s finally starting to feel like fall here in Nashville, and I could not be more excited. This summer has been nothing short of amazing, but I’m ready for cooler days and for it to be more acceptable for me to stay at home and read on the weekends. Fall is the perfect time to read some creepy thrillers, magical mysteries, and cozy love stories. Let’s get into my fall TBR list… Image from Amazon 1. It by Stephen King I’ve been trying to finish this book since last year. It’s such a monster of a book, but I’ve really enjoyed it so far. I hope to finish it this year around…

    Summer TBR List

    During my break from blogging, I realized I was reading so much more. Part of that was because I was utilizing my library and it’s book hold option a bit more, but another contributing factor was that I didn’t have the limitation of my monthly TBRs — I could easily read whatever was sitting on my shelf without worrying about hitting a specific mark. Therefore, I’m going to switch to seasonal TBRs knowing full well that I may not read everything on my list, but I’ll have a little more wiggle room. Summer is one of my favorite seasons (I grew up in Florida — it’s always summer) because I love reading…

    True Crime TBR List

    One of my goals of 2019 is to read more true crime books since it’s an area of knowledge that I’m fascinated by. I listen to a lot of true crime podcasts, but I absorb information a lot more from reading or watching documentaries. I finished Helter Skelter a few weeks ago, and I feel like I’m a wealth of knowledge on Charles Manson. It reminded me of how much I love true crime, so I figured I would make a little true crime TBR list for the rest of the here. Let’s get started! 1. I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer…

    February TBR List 2019

    I started making these TBRs last year, and it’s really helped me stick to my reading goals. I am such a planner, and this is just another way for me to outline my life and reach my overarching goals. I rarely read everything on these TBRs, but I prefer to over-commit myself than under. I also always read something I didn’t anticipate at the beginning on the month, which is 100% okay. Like I said, this is an outline, not a final draft. Let’s get started with my February TBR list for 2019! Image from Amazon 1. They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera In a world where you…

    2019 TBR List

    Time to set some reading intentions for 2019! I’ve already started this year off strong by finishing two books in the first 14 days (that’s a big deal for me believe it or not), and I’m hoping to keep the momentum going through the next 11 months. I’ve compiled this list of books that are high on my reading list, but I know I’ll probably add a ton more before the year is up. Keep in mind this list is highly aspirational. I’ve listed 24 books in this post, and it’s not likely I’ll actually read every book on this list, but I’m going to try. Since I’m already listing out so…

    November TBR List

    November is just around the corner, and boy am I excited! Not only is November my birthday month, but I have some fun people coming in to town for Thanksgiving that I can’t wait to spend time with. I’m keeping this month’s TBR list short and sweet because I’ve got a lot of books I’m trying to wrap up as the year comes to an end that I’ve either already mentioned in a TBR or recommendation list, and I wouldn’t want to repeat myself too much. Now, let’s get started! Image from Goodreads 1.The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis A bit of a creepy mystery, The Dollhouse follows present day Rose Lewin as she…

    October TBR List

    Another month has come and gone, and yet again, I didn’t get nearly as much reading done as I wanted to, but such is life. I started a new job last week, and it has taken up all of my time getting adjusted to that, so it’s okay if reading fell a little bit to the way side. I’m going to switch it up in October and try to read some of the lighter books that have been on my list for awhile. Let’s get started!

    September TBR List

    I’m cheating a little bit — but only a little bit — because these books were on some of my older TBR lists. I hope you can forgive me. I still haven’t gotten around to them (unfortunately, I didn’t read as much in August as I expected — life got in the way), but I’m DETERMINED to finish these books during September. From massive books discussed the decline in violence throughout time to an adult fantasy, September’s reads are sure to take me on a journey. Let’s get started! Image from Amazon

    July TBR List

    It’s that time of the month again! Since I started creating to-be-read lists, I have been reading more and more. Sometimes I sway from the list, but all-in-all, my reading has never been any better. I’ve read more in the last two months that I did January through March. That being said, I did forgo some of the books on my May and June list, so I’m keeping my July list short in hopes that I can get to those books too. Let’s get started with what I hope to be reading this coming month! Image from Amazon 1. Sweet Forgiveness by Lori Nelson Spielman My mother gave me Sweet Forgiveness years…

    June TBR List

    Happy almost June! It feels like I’m jumping the gun since there are still 9 days until the end of the month, but I’m already excited about the books I’m going to be flipping through in the next month. The first time I made a TBR list for myself was last month, and I’ve got to say I was a lot more motivated to read knowing I wanted to finish certain books in the month. I haven’t finished them all yet, but it was the best month for reading I have had in a while. Let’s jump into my June TBR list! Image from Goodreads 1. “A Darker Shade of…
