Two things, first, yes I changed the name of this little thing, because the boring name was annoying me. Secondly, it came to my notice the other day that I am rapidly running out of space on my bookcase – I probably have a couple more months worth of book hauls before I’m out of room completely. Since I do not have the mulla to go buy new bookcases (since I spend it all on books) I’ve decided if a book wants to stay on my shelf it needs to be have a goal of being read. This means all the books on the bottom two shelves need to be re-read. I have maybe 30 books I brought and read years ago that just sit on my shelf, with me having little to no memory of whether or not I even liked them. Now all those book titles are also in my TBR Jar, which is why today’s draws are so random!
My life in the last two weeks has been pretty chill, uni started back and I can already tell I’m going to be struggling under the work load this semester. I participated in #TBRTakedown 2.0 and managed to read all 5 books, I was pretty impressed with myself.
Just something a little different this draw, since this week is BookTube-A-Thon and I’ll be struggling to read the 7 books required to conquer the read-a-thon, I wont really have time to read this TBR Jar book straight after the book I’m currently reading. I will however, read it straight after BookTube-A-Thon finishes, which means first thing next Monday I will be slaying this TBR Jar read!
- I do a Monday Book Draw ever second Monday
- I draw two strips of paper out of the jar each week and choose which one I’d rather read
- The book has to be read straight after I finish the current book I’m reading
- I can’t say start another book until I’ve finished the one I drew
- If the same title is drawn and not chosen (out of the two I draw) twice, the third time the title is drawn I HAVE to read it.
- I’m allowed to DNF the book if I truly don’t enjoy it.
I honestly have no memory of ever having read Big Girl, I’m not even sure if I ever have? I can’t imagine why I’d buy it as a 14-16 year old???
I used to love the Gallagher Girl books, they were maybe one of the first book series I ever read and loved. I read Heist Society by Ally Carter just the other week – another book I used to love when I was younger – and I didn’t end up liking it that much now that I’m older.
I’m not to keen to read either of these books – but as I mentioned above if the book wants to stay on my shelf it has to be read. I’m going to go with I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You because then I’ll be having a cute little walk down memory lane (I hope anyways!).
Until next time 🙂 🙂
