Tackling the TBR Week 30: Aug 8 - Aug 14, 2020

My TBR has been out of control for YEARS. Then in January of 2019 I started tracking weekly my true reading/acquiring habits, and voila! I have been able to keep on top of things a little bit better. I may never get below 1,000 books, but at least I won't be topping out over 5,000! When a book cover is linked, it goes to the review here on my blog.

I will be posting on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and the last day of the month. Feel free to join in if you'd like!

If a book is linked in the 'Books Read' section, you can click the cover to go to my review.

Breaking even, I'll take it! Teacher workdays are both helping and hindering this - helping because I do not have time to peruse blog after blog for new reads, but hindering because I don't have as much time for reading what I already have. #BookDragon problems.

Any of these catch your eye? Have you already read any? Let me know!

Happy Reading!



  1. You have to read Poet X!!!
    I love Elizabeth Acevedo!

    1. I did, I read it in one sitting! LOVED IT SO MUCH. I am in line on the hold list at the library for Clap When You Land and With the Fire on High.

    2. I related so much to Xiomara. Her relationship with her mother reminded me of my relationship with mine during my teen years. I kept tearing up when reading it.

    3. I think the author did such a fantastic job portraying the relationship, I could feel it so forcefully as I was reading.


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
