Killing the TBR
Killing the TBR is my way of holding myself accountable for all of my one-clicks. I’m a bit of a book hoarder and usually have more than a hundred books on my physical TBR. I’ve been doing this challenge on and off since September of 2015. It’s pretty straightforward.
Each month, I must read:
- three books that I own
- that I obtained more than three months ago
- or else I am not allowed to obtain more books
Initially, I just stopped myself from buying new books, but starting in 2018, I also decided to put a freeze on requesting ARCs, borrowing from the library, and signing up for blog tours. I post reviews for these books on most Fridays. Find them all here.
100 Book Challenge Progress
I challenged myself to read at least 100 books in 2018 and I met that goal in June! See all my 2018 books here.
