Hey there my lovelies!
I know many of you have super long TBRs and after more than 1 ½ years on goodreads my own list grew drastically as well. Right now it contains 303 books (how did that even happen? O_o) and I’m pretty sure I won’t even read half of them. *lol*
But what can I say? I’m not only a lazybutt but also a busy one (Go figure!) and because I don’t have that much time I tend to well… procrastinate when it comes to my TBR. XD (Don’t we all?!)
Anyway! That’s not the point of this post! The point of this blog post is that I don’t only want to reduce my TBR but that I also want to do it in a slow and sensible manner. I know there are things like “Down the TBR hole” (did I write that right?!) and a few other cool blog memes but for a tentative reader like me who actually wants to read ALL the books on their TBR shelf they always seemed to be too drastic.
Long story short: I came up with an idea for my own blog post and if you want to try it out too you’re welcome to do so! XD
1.) Chose 3 random numbers from 1 to the end of your TBR list. (In my case it would be 3 random numbers from 1 – 303, so for instance I’ll pick 33, 218 and 299)
2.) Take a look at the 3 books on your TBR. (33 – Anna and the French Kiss, 218 – The Mediator , 299 – Defy Me *lol*)
3.) Then you follow the rhyme:
One to hug and read, (Anna and the French Kiss)
One to kiss and keep, (Defy Me because the book isn’t even out yet and I’m so going to read it!!! XD)
One to dismiss and weep! (The Mediator, I can’t even remember adding this book to my list. >_<)
4.) Read the book you hugged and kept within a month and repeat the process as often and as frequently as you like. (I’ll do this once a month and hopefully it will help me to reduce my TBR ;-P)
5.) Last but not least, link back to the original post @The Sassy Library Fox
I don’t know about you, but I already feel better about my TBR. *lol* I really hope many people will enjoy “Hugs’n’kisses OR Dismissed by the Missus/Messrs” and if it only helps one person to be content with their TBR I’ll consider my job to be done! 😉
