Down the TBR Hole | March Deadlines

Down the TBR Hole | March Deadlines

Down the TBR Hole was originally created by Lia @ Lost in a Story

Welcome to the first of my Down the TBR Hole deadline reviews! If you’ve ever read any of my Down the TBR Hole posts, you may have noticed that I also assign myself a deadline date for those books that I do decide to keep. Although this is not a feature of the original Down the TBR Hole, I know that I would likely continue to let these books sit on my TBR shelf unless I gave myself a motivation to read them. By assigning deadlines, it was my hope that I would be giving myself an incentive to hurry up and read the books or else force myself to discard them from my TBR – holding me accountable for my keeps and motivating me to read!

Let’s see how I did for my Round One – March Deadline books:

WWW Wednesday + Updates | 21st February 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading/playing?
What did you recently finish reading/playing?
What do you think you’ll read/play next?

So… I know it’s a day late and I haven’t posted a WWW Wednesday 2 weeks but I finally have a spare moment to actually do a quick post to update you all on what I’m getting up to at the moment reading wise. I’ve also expanded the question out to include what I’m playing video games, as I’m finding that I’m spending more time playing games than reading at the moment in an attempt to wind down with my partner, and some weeks I have no book updates but more game updates!

WWW Wednesday | 7th February 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

This past week I’ve barely read anything at all as I’ve been so busy with my PhD application and working part-time that any space time I’ve had has been spent sleeping so this week’s edition of WWW Wednesday will be quite short (and late!)

February TBR | Getting stuck into my 2019 goals

February TBR | Getting stuck into my 2019 goals

Hey friends!

After having such a successful January, this month has been off to quite a slow start. I’ve had a lot going on over the past week and I’m going to be pretty busy for most of February meaning I’m likely to have less time for reading and blogging. I did come up with a fairly ambitious TBR, prior to realizing I might not have much time this month, so we’ll have to check back in at the end of the month to see how much (if any) progress I made!

Top 10 Tuesday | A Love Letter to All the Owned Books I Still Haven’t Read

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way. 

– Top 10 Backlist Books I Own & Still Need to Read –

Now, this is a TTT prompt I can really get behind because, like most of you, my owned TBR list is RIDICULOUS. I try really hard to not let it get too out of control but even so my evergrowing book hoard is reaching a new level. As we’re showing some love to backlist books this week all of the books featured below are ones that were released prior to 2018, physical books that I own, and a combination of ones I’m most excited to read as well as those that have been here since the dawn of time.
