I’ve done something similar to this in the past. Previously I picked five books and stuck to them until they were done. Instead of doing strictly month to month TBR goals I’m going to go about this a little differently. We all have books we’ve been meaning to get to but they keep getting pushed aside for various reasons. I’m going to use my “Stack of 10” posts to focus on 10 books from my shelves and to make sure they get read. I won’t be adding any other personal books until those 10 are finished. Then I’ll start another stack of 10.
Of course there are a few caveats to this. Would it be me if there wasn’t some wiggle room? I will add in ARCs as necessary to make promised review dates and I will add in BSC books to keep on pace with my Nostalgia Reads project. I’m hoping to finish at least one book and one BSC book a week which means each Stack of 10 should take 10 weeks to complete. I currently have about 5 ARCs for review so we may be looking more at 3 months. I’m okay with that.
The reason that I like these Stacks of 10 is because it makes me feel more accomplished. I like making these big TBR piles and then try to cram them all into a month and that generally just gives me a case of burn out. I’m going to use the Stack of 10 to help build monthly TBRs but it will help keep my ambitions in check.
Here’s what the rest of my April is going to look like:
