Wow, it feels like just yesterday I was writing my January 2021 TBR post – I’ve definitely found that the older you get, the faster the years seem to go by. Especially during these stressful times where time is a confusing concept and everyone’s perspective is skewed and warped. I desperately hope for some peace this year, and frankly that includes my reading. I spent a lot of 2021 reading a very strict list of books that I made each month, and berated myself if life got in the way and I didn’t finish or if I just wasn’t feeling that book at that time. I forgot why I’m reading and was doing it for others – for Netgalley, for publishers, for bookstagram. My overarching goal for 2022 is to basically not have TBRs.
Now, you may be asking yourself, “but why is she writing this post then?” and that would be an excellent question. My fickle brain is complex – it’s been wanting to mood read but without some parameters I am paralyzed by indecision and that ends up stressing me out more. So, imagine these TBRs as a very loose guideline for the month – a list of books that my current brain wants to read soon. And I think it will be interesting to compare the results at the end of the month in my wrap up posts. So, don’t expect me to actually read the books below. But if I do, fantastic 🙂
- Our Violent Ends (These Violent Delights #2), Chloe Gong
- Rise Up From the Embers (Set Fire to the Gods #2), Sara Raasch
- The Bookworm Crush, Lisa Brown Roberts
- Diamond and Dawn (Amber and Dusk #2), Lyra Selene
- All These Bodies, Kendare Blake

I have no goals for how many books I want to read, but I normally read between 20-30 so obviously there’s a lot of wiggle room here. I’m excited to embrace this new mentality.
Happy reading, folks!
