The themes this month are…
- Late-a-thon — January 1st→31st
- A whole month of reading overdue ARCs and books I meant to read ages ago!
- January Jam Jar
- Devour Your TBR Jar’s challenge for the month: pulling your reads out of a TBR jar! My jar is full of overdue ARCs for Late-a-thon!
By the way, have you joined the new Goodreads group Kathy and I are hosting, Devour Your TBR? If you haven’t, you should! ♥ It’s a group solely devoted to monthly reading challenges and knocking out those pesky TBR mountains!
Instead of clicking the titles for Goodreads links, you can view a Goodreads shelf of my entire month’s TBR here!
Now, on to my TBR!
? = ARC
? = POC rep
? = LGBTQ+ rep
⏰ = Late-a-thon
(keep in mind that I haven’t read these yet, so I may miss the rep on some titles—if you see anything I missed, please let me know!)
- Darkest Hours — Mike Thorn ?⏰
- This was my “Try a Chapter” Challenge pick for the month!
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (illustrated ed.) — J.K. Rowling
- I’m reading this for Cassie’s #youreawizardreadalong series readalong!
- The Last Olympian — Rick Riordan ?⏰
- Time to finally finish up this series with a buddy read with Sylwia! ♥
- This Mortal Coil — Emily Suvada
- I know Bex, Kal, and Taylor will be happy to see that Kelly and I are reading this one later this month!
- Darkfever — Karen Marie Moning ⏰
- I’ve been eyeing this forever, and finally decided to pick it up for a group read with some people in one of the Goodreads groups I’m in.
- Dead of Winter — Kealan Patrick Burke
- Do I even need any justification for this one? ♥
UNHAUL Challenge TBR
I decided to change the way I choose my Unhaul Challenge book(s)! I’m lowering it from 2 books per month to 1, and instead of having Twitter and Goodreads make suggestions, I’m gonna ask YOU all to! ♥♥♥ So, if you could please pop over to my owned-TBR goodreads shelf HERE and suggest a title for me to read this month, I’ll pick one lucky winner, and I’ll have to either read it by January 31st or UNHAUL it!
Leftover from December
No optional TBR this month! In the spirit of self-care this year, you guys will notice I’ll be making much smaller TBRs, so I might do away with this section altogether next month.
- Surviving my first month at my new job without falling off the face of the blogosphere! That’s it. That’s my whole monthly goal list. ?
What books on your January TBR are you most excited to read? Will you be joining in with Late-a-thon or the January Jam Jar challenge? And PLEASE be sure to suggest an Unhaul Challenge title for me below!
