It’s a list of one!
“That’s not a list!” you say.
Shoo! I don’t need your negativity!
I mentioned last month that I wasn’t really doing a “TBR” because I already had too much left to catch up on that I’d failed to read in previous months’ TBR’s. Well, I continued my failing streak by reading exactly none of the books I was behind on during May! Look at me go!
With that said, May was a horrible month for me for a number of reasons, and all that’s to be done is to move forward. So I’m giving myself a really small, simple goal this month. I’m going to finish reading Stephen King’s On Writing. It really shouldn’t be difficult, because I’m halfway through it already. And if I manage that, I’ll move on to the next thing, but for the sake of just saying I have a TBR for June, there it is: that one book. Wish me luck.
Prepare yourselves! I’m about to lay down a totally logical and mildly adult decision!
As I mentioned in my first “To Be Read” post back in January, I really like the idea of a TBR list because it gives that sense of accountability and it is definitely helping to remind me to actually read some of the giant pile of books and comics that I’ve been amassing over the years. That said, I’ve been having a bit of trouble finding the time of late, give a laundry list of reasons which I won’t get into because I mention them often enough in my weekly update posts.
For March’s list I didn’t finish either of the books I had intended to, although I did get about halfway through Stephen King’s On Writing and am enjoying it. I did manage to get through the Buffy the Vampire Season 8 volume that I had left over from February’s list, and I’m getting close to finishing A Clockwork Orange, which was actually from January’s list, but that still leaves me behind by one full book (The Lunar Chronicles: Winter) and two halves of books. In addition to that I’ve actually also been reading The Brothers Lionheart with the little one, and I give that one precedence since reading with my daughter is more important to me than reading just for myself. 🙂
So, to cut to the chase, I’m currently reading three different books at once, and have another full one remaining from last month’s TBR list, so I’ve decided to just leave it at that for the month of April, because I don’t want to get further behind. If I do manage to complete the books that I’ve yet to catch up on, I’ll try to sneak in an extra one just to say that I read something extra for April, but I’m not terribly concerned. The official listing will return in May.
In the meantime, look forward to getting reviews for all the books I’m currently working through, including The Brothers Lionheart, which I’m enjoying just as much as the little one!
