So this post may be a little long but I’ll try to keep it as short as I can. Last year i went a bit crazy with spending and book hauls, one of my hauls was 20+ books (a lot of them were cheap and second hand but still… 20+)
This year I decided I’m going to get all these books read before they turn into lonely yellowed versions of their former selfs and plan a mutiny against me. I’m doing Project 5 which is if you’re not familiar a read 5 buy 1 plan. I fail at book bans whenever I try but this system is actually working really well for me and is motivating me to read so it’s a win win all round.
Its been a month and a half and I have only purchased 2 books and pre-ordered one (I’m not counting pre-orders until I have them in my hands) I have read 14 books and will have read 15 by the time my copy of A Conjuring of Light gets here! I’m on track although I’ve let myself have some little cheats:
- I’m not including review books as purchases
- I’m also not including Audio books because I’m an audible member and get credits either way.
So just to put myself through so more pain I thought I’d list all my to be read books that I own in sorted by genres. Do pressure me in the comments to hurry up and pick one up that’s your fave I need all the motivation I can get.
So that leaves me with a grand total of 50ish books to be read this year and this my to be read immediately shelf, I do have boxes of books that I just acquired and need to unhaul because I’m never going to read them.
I’m slowly picking away at this and will hopefully have a follow-up piece to this post with all new to be read books on my shelves. If anyones to be read shelves are over flowing or you just want to save more money I highly recommend project 5 over a book buying ban as its working wonders from my self control… I mean I actually have some now!
Spot any of your faves or any books that are on your TBR too? What’s the book that’s been on your to read list the longest?
Mine is Four Past Midnight by Stephen King I borrowed this book from my Mum 4 years ago, 4 YEARS AGO it’s safe to say that it is mine now since she’s forgotten it existed.
P.S Hey if anyone would like to do a buddy read for any of these books I am always down for that.
