Hyello, babushkas! How’s it going?
So I’ve been struggling with picking up a book and actually sticking to it for months now. I have so many books on hold just because I started reading them, got 100 pages in and then decided I’m not in the mood for them anymore. It’s very annoying. I’ve tried doing small TBRs but of course that never worked out because I can never stick to TBRs too.
But this time it’s different. I think. I hope. Louisa @thereadingsloth_ and I came up with this brilliant idea of a buddy TBR. We’re both tired of reading only fantasy (for me) and trashy contemporaries (for her) so we wanted to make this TBR diverse when it comes to genres. So we decided we want these 11 different genres and we picked one young adult book for each and every genre.
Why is this TBR different from what I’ve done in the past? Well, there are rules. Of course we both won’t get to all 11 books. But if we for example read Stalking Jack the Ripper instead of Jackaby (aka our pick for this TBR) and they’re both historical fiction, we have to buy the other something (note: we’re both lowkey broke and have to be careful with how we’re spending our money so I’m pretty positive this will actually work lol). That doesn’t mean we can’t read other books in historical fiction if we’re in the mood for it; we can read it AFTER we read Jackaby (we can only do that once, though. We still have to read other books on this TBR hehe).
This made so much more sense in our heads lol.
So without further ado, here’s my and Louisa’s TBR for November:
