First things first, shout out to The Bionic Bookworm for giving me this idea and giving this challenge a name! I’m going to be following her challenge but tweaking it a little to fit my reading style. You can find her initial post here!
So, part of my 2018 Summer reading goals was to balance my ever growing TBR with all the new releases and ARCs I was excited for. I think we can all agree that as a book blogger, or a general bookworm, this is one of the hardest things to balance. Another one of my Summer reading goals was making a TBR and sticking to it. I usually just read books in whatever order I feel like, but in an effort to make sure I’m reading both old and new books and a wide variety of genres, I’ve been making an immediate TBR list. And to my great surprise, its been working and I’m loving it! Deciding what to read next was always kind of a hassle for me since there are so many books I want to read, but now I just think about it all at once and just move through the list. It’s basically been life changing for me.
For the TBR Unhaul Challenge I’m going to be picking at least two books from my backlisted TBR, or books I’ve been meaning to read for a year or more, and putting them somewhere in my immediate TBR plan. I won’t be picking them at random, that’s not really my style, but I will be picking two different genres each time I put one on the list. For example, the TBR list I’m working on right now has an adult fiction and a new adult romance unhaul pick. Hopefully, I’ll discover some new favorites, but for the books I find I don’t like I’ll be getting rid of them. I do have quite a bit of ebooks I’ve been meaning to read on both my Nook and Kindle, so those will be in the mix as well.
I’ll have to see how this plays out, but I’m hoping that I can do a post of just mini-reviews for the unhaul books I’ve read. This way I can keep track of the challenge as a whole, give you updates as I go, and talk about the books even if I DNF them or something where I wouldn’t give a usual review.
I’m really excited to see how this plays out! I’ll be updating my progress here, Goodreads, and my Instagram so you can follow along on all three! Also, follow Shanah’s blog, The Bionic Bookworm, to follow her progress with the challenge as well! Please let me know if you’re planning on joining in so I can follow your journey! Happy reading!
