TBRS are a normal part of the reader community and I’m sure you see videos popping up in your YouTube feed, blog feed, etc. of them for read-a-thons and monthly lists. TBR’s are some of my favorite book-related posts to read and watch. But…I don’t personally set them and here’s the main reason why:
I could never commit myself to reading a specific set of books. What I’m in the mood for to read changes just about everyday, so it would be frustrating for me to say “Okay, this is what I’m planning to read for September.” Of course, just because you set a TBR list doesn’t mean that you HAVE to read those particular books or you’ll have to sacrifice your first born, though, as a planner, that’s one thing I don’t like to plan ya know?
Typically, I’m reading no more than 3 books at a time just as to not overwhelm myself and so far, so good. I used to read like 5 books simultaneously and….just no. Didn’t work out well for me. I have no idea why I ever thought that would be a good idea haha. I think a good look at my Goodreads TBR got to me a bit.
But yeah! That’s the main reason why I don’t set TBRS. My reading mood changes too much haha. I’m hoping to get more into read-a-thons in the future though. Time will tell.
Do you set monthly, weekly TBRS?
