Withering TBR Pile

To try and combat the never ending list I have decided to dedicate at least one day a week to reminding myself what books are on that list by sharing with you guys.

Two years have passed and I have transformed in several ways. I am now a credentialed teacher and am officially completed with school (at least for the near future). This means that my weekly TBR list has also transformed. If you have been following, or even remember following me, then you will remember that I was focused on reading mainly YA novels, novellas, and short stories. While I am not stopping any of those, I am adding books about education and adding a list of articles and essays. I am going to try and keep up with the weekly updates but my TBR post may go from weekly to monthly because I will be walking into my first year of teaching and everything that comes along with that. Not trying to stress myself out here.

So what am I adding? Well, I don’t see many articles and essays reviewed other than in journals. So I am playing around with the idea of adding them to my reviews. Not sure how that will work out seeing as I have never seen it done by a blogger before and frankly not sure where to start. We will just have to see how this unfolds in the coming year.

This post was originally designed to help me catch up on my TBR list that keeps getting bigger and bigger thanks to all my “squirrel!” moments with new releases. Now I want to see it morph into a way to organize my reading and keep me on task with my reading goals. I want to continue to find new and diverse literature to teach in the classroom, keep up with new research, and continue to learn and grow as a teacher. So here is this new teachers TBR list for the month of July!

What about you? Have you managed to read any books on your TBR list or did you succumb to the new release or new book gotta-haves? Do we share any of the same books on our TBR list?

So I am pleased to report that I kicked butt during the Tome Topple reading challenge. For those of you who don’t know what Tome Topple reading challenge it is basically a challenge in which you only read books that are 500 pages long or more. I managed to get through Illuminae (608 pages), Geminae (672 pages) and Defy the Stars (503 pages). I also finished three short stories: Blindsight (11 pages), Paper (36 pages), and Nail (21 pages). And an additional 100 pages of Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo. I did a bit better than last week with 1,343 pages read this week. I can live with those numbers. Now, I have to either match or exceed that number next week for the next reading challenge I am participating in. Gee… Wish me luck!

As you may or may not know I am currently partaking in the Tome Topple reading challenge. This means reading books that are 500 pages or more long. I managed to get through Illuminae (608 pages) by this update and am currently working on Geminae (672 pages). I like the motivation this challenge has given me without all of the stress that I tend to pile on myself.  I did not complete any short stories, but I am okay with that considering I just got through almost 900 pages in the past week.
