I’ve made a lot of reading resolutions, and one of them is to be better about cultivating a monthly TBR. I know so many bloggers do beginning of the month TBR posts and I always LOVE reading them, so I’ve decided to post my own as well! I will include my physical, e-book, and ARC TBRs as well as a status update of where I am prior to starting my upcoming month’s TBR.
Reading Progress Prior To This Month: 25/80 Books Read
You guys, a near miracle happened. I read EVERY book on my March 2018 TBR except one. I am SO proud of myself of being more intentional with my reading and creating these TBRs, and my mood reading didn’t even get in the way! I used to think I’d never be able to stick to a pre-determined TBR (and it does take me a while to craft it each month) but it’s really paying off and I’m reading more than ever and wasting less time trying to decide what to read.
April is going to bring with it a few last spring showers, but mostly weather in the low-mid seventies and I am SO ready. I love when the sun is shining and I can wear shorts and skirts again, and it’s putting me in the mood to read some summery contemporaries! The focus this month will be on finishing up a few pending NetGalley arcs and trying to get into the summer reading mood.
Tyler Johnson Was Here // After reading Dear Martin in March, I’m eager to continue to read more diverse YA that tackles the socio-political issues happening right now. This one also seems like it has a mystery slant to it from the synopsis.
The Wedding Date // Been waiting to read this one FOREVER. The reviews have been all been amazing and I’m living for adult fiction lately. I think my library hold for this one is FINALLY going to come in this month!
Rich People Problems // I am utterly obsessed with the Crazy Rich Asians series and I’m crossing my fingers that my hold for this one comes in this month (I think I was number 26 or so when I put it on hold two months ago).
The Unexpected Everything // I’ve been putting this one off since I DNF’d Since You’ve Been Gone and it’s SO LONG (500+ pages for a summery contemporary?!) but I’ve missed reading Matson’s writing so I’m going to hopefully crack this open in April!
Valley Girls // I gave Lemon’s debut 5 stars so I’m crossing my fingers that I like this one as well (plus a California setting!)
The Art of French Kissing // This one looks adorable, features food, has macarons on the cover (YUM) and fits right in with my transitioning-to-reading-summery-contemporary-books plan. I’m also hoping to get to this one in April (though it’s release date is in June) since May is going to be a pretty crazy month for me!
Are any of these on your TBR? What’s your most anticipated book for April? Let me know in the comments!
