Alright, so I’m going to forewarn all of you. This post will probably be all over the place. This is more of a rant for myself than anything else.
I’ve been trying to decide what would work better for me. I generally stick to monthly TBRs (at least I have been recently) but sometimes I just want to go outside of that.
So, only option I was thinking was to do a monthly TBR still but make it larger than needed. I wouldn’t pressure myself into reading all of the books because I made it over ambitious on purpose so that I have more options.
Another option is to stick with monthly TBR again except only count books I “have” to read. So in other words, ARCs, book club books, buddy reads, etc. Then I would know what I have to read, get those out of the way and have the rest of the month to read whatever.
And that leads to the next option. The immediate TBR. In other words, books that I’m most excited about.
I’m recently trying to change how I read series. I want to collect the entire series before I even start it. The only exceptions to this would be large series. Then I’ll start out with the first couple and go from there if I’m enjoying it.
But by reading my series this way, I’ll be able to read standalones during the time of me not having the series to read. I’d have to reorganize my bookshelves so I have series together and standalones together but that’s not too hard since I have to reorganize at the end of the month anyway.
So here’s my question, how do you go about deciding what to read? Do you just grab whatever or do you have a TBR?
How do you like it and what are the perks in your opinion? And of course, what are some negatives that you see?
Thank you all for dealing with my little “discussion.” I hope you enjoyed this even though it’s kind of a mess and not really a well done post.
