Tackling the TBR Week 26: July 8 - July 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.

My numbers increased this week, but I don't even mind. It is due to the slew of books I was directed to that were free from Cambridge University Press through July 12th. So many great and important reads, and a couple even on my TBR already.

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

Happy Reading!



  1. For as many books as are on your list, I'm always amazed at how many books you're able to get through each week!

    1. Ghost Boys and Long Way Down were such fast reads, because I could not put them down. Long Way Down is also told in verse, so that was a factor, but it was so fucking good and I was crying by the end. Unfortunately, I am also having trouble sleeping lately - if I had to wager a guess I would say it is because of the whole 'going back to school eight hours a day while cases are still rising' thing. Sometimes I am not falling asleep until 2 or 3 AM. Later when Eleanor is at her dad's. So I put the time to good use at least!

  2. wow you have added a bunch. I see some good ones. i missed the post for last week but i will doing a two week post on sunday. i love this idea. i has motivated me to read older books and get them off my shelf. i don't always review them, but i do rate them on goodreads

    1. Many of the ones I added relating to race and racism came from Cambridge University Press that they had available for free through July 12th. It was such a fantastic friend and I am glad my friend Marianne sent me the link. I can't wait to see your numbers next time you post!


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