Tell Me Something Tuesday

It’s a new year and that makes it the perfect time to shake things up a little. I recently found this weekly meme and it intrigued me enough that I thought I’d give it a try. I can’t promise I’ll participate every week because sometimes I have a tough time coming up with something to say for every prompt for a meme like this. Still, I thought it’d be fun for something a little different.

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a discussion post/meme with a new topic each week. What do you say we take a look at this week’s topic?

What books or series that are languishing in your TBR are you finally going to try this year?

Oooooh boy, this is a doozy of a topic for my first TMST post. Like literally every other reader or blogger I know, I totally struggle with my TBR. My eyes are often bigger than my reading time, so I pretty much always feel like I’m drowning in books. Do I stop buying or accepting for review, though? Please. Let’s not be ridiculous. 😉

I know I’m supposed to talk about the TBR books/series I’m going to read this year, but … that’s a long list. If you don’t believe me, just look at my Want to Read shelf on Goodreads. That’s not a wishlist, folks. Those are the books I actually own that are just waiting to be read. Obviously I’m never going to get around to reading them all, but I’m trying to make at least a little bit of a dent this year. That’s part of the reason I decided to host the Tackle My TBR Challenge this year. I’ve also created a new TBR jar and put a reasonable number of titles in it. (And I’ve already pulled three from it AND read them!)

As far as the individual books go, here’s a very small sampling of a few I’d like to get around to reading this year. (They’re all in my TBR jar, too!) Each of these is either a) a book by an author I love, b) a book EVERYONE (ok, not really…) tells me I need to read, or c) both. And this doesn’t even include those pesky series I still need to finish.

Twelve TBR Books

Day of the Duchess | 180 Seconds | Damaged Like Us | The Hate U Give | GripMarrying Winterborne | The Impossible Vastness of Us | Royally Screwed | Sleepless in Manhattan | Tell Me Three Things | The Perils of PleasureBright Side

Have you read any of my “must read” TBR titles for 2018? What’d you think?

Let's Chat

Is your TBR totally out of control?
Are you trying to conquer it this year?

      I’m honestly embarrassed to admit to not having read THUG yet. I do love this series of Sarah’s, even though I came into it late. Her books make me happy.

  1. This is a great list!! Sleepless in Manhattan is fantastic. Definitely need to read that one!! I finally read Bright Side this past year and enjoyed it. Tell Me Three Things is wonderful! I need to read The Hate U Give this year and Grip.

      Confession: I’m not sure I am mentally ready for Bright Side. I suspect it’s the type of book that will totally destroy me, even though I intentionally spoiled the ending for myself. I have to be in the right mood for a read like that.

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who hasn’t read it yet! Sometimes it feels like it. I’ve heard great things about both The Hate U Give and Tell Me Three Things. I’m excited to get around to them.

      I know I’m not the only one. It’s just hard to keep up, especially when you discover a new author and decide to tackle their backlist. I’m really looking forward to Marrying Winterborne. I might start the audio of that one, soon.

  2. Thanks for participanting in TMST. Sorry I didn’t get here yesterday. You have some great ones on your list. I have heard wonderful things about Tell Me Three Things, I have a copy myself that needs to be read. Ahh… Will we ever catch up?
