Tackling the TBR Weeks 21 and 22: June 1 - June 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.

Not too shabby that I had all those new adds, but my TBR only went up by one. Whew!

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

Happy Reading!


  1. I saw some of your Foul is Fair reactions on Twitter, and I think you enjoyed that one a lot more than I did! ;) I always add books faster than I can read them, so I don't think I'll ever get my TBR under control.

    1. I LOVED it! I was so worried that I wouldn't, because I loved Dead Queens Club SO MUCH, and this one sounded so different. But, Macbeth is is my fave Shakespearean play, so I was cautiously optimistic and this one did not disappoint me at all. I loved it loved it loved it. I'm sorry you didn't though, did you review it? I'd love to read your thoughts/talk about it to see it from your perspective.

      As you can see, my TBR will also never be under control either, no matter how valiant my attempts are!

  2. i'm kind of interested in Anna Comnenius... i did a post on a book by Scott called Count Robert of Paris earlier this year and it was all about that era and Scott's usual plot complexities: it was moderately absorbing but not one of his best... but the interaction between the Crusaders and the Byzantines got my attention...

    1. She is absolutely fascinating to me; I was super psyched when I saw that one on NetGalley. I am not too far into it yet, and like you I am always interested in reading more about the Crusaders and Byzantines. It was a very fraught relationship, to say the least. They were awful to each other.

    2. i'm continuously amazed at how much humans don't change much...

    3. Right? We are 'so advanced', except not really at all.


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