February TBR and Goals

I didn’t do so well last month with the TBR pile. January was an awful month for me. I struggled to do the basics, because I had a huge change in my life. Hopefully I can manage things better this month. I am trying. You’ll notice some of the same books from last month’s TBR on February’s TBR.

Also: I would like to note that TBRs are a new thing to me, because I normally read whatever I lay eyes on. It is not very effective. Now, I have a nice pile of books next to my bed ready to be read. I am not sure if that is necessary. I mean, maybe you just put them on the shelves nearby. What do you guys with TBRs? Do you set them nearby? Or, do you leave them scattered in the room? Does it matter?

Another problem I am facing is focusing on one books or two at a time. I want to read all the things, all at once. I kind of have a lot of books to go through. *Gestures wildly around her room* If you have any tips, please share them in the comments.

Let’s start!

FEBRUARY TBR:

Girl of Fire and Thorns–Rae Carson

The Dream Thieves–Maggie Steifvater

A Darker Shade of Magic–V.E. Schwab

Revenge and the Wild–Michelle Modesto

Half-baked attempts: On Writing by Stephen King (it’s good! But, my copy is gross)

Extra Credit: Cinder (Marissa Meyer) and The Wrath and the Dawn (Renee Ahdieh)

Goals:

-Get halfway through my novel

-Start exercising daily (walks maybe?)

-Photography

-Read and journal every day

-Integrate creative writing into the blog/Twitter

 

Hope you guys have a brilliant February! Please share your advice, if you have any, below. I am very curious to hear what you think of the books on this list. I am trying to participate in a Feminist Lit February readathon. I’ll link it in this blog entry, right here.
