[TBR] Plan to read in August 2017

Pretty sure this is the latest I’ve posted a monthly TBR! Honestly, I didn’t really want to post this because I feel I’m kind of in a slump, except it’s not that I don’t feel like reading, for some reason I’m just reading less often and much slower than usual. So I may not be able to read all of the books on this list, even though it’s a fairly small stack, but it’s not like I’m not going to try. So anyway – these are the books I’d like and hope to read this month!

[TBR] Plan to read in June 2017

Happy June, everyone! So May came and went at record speed and I guess it’s time to put together a TBR for this month. This is maybe the smallest pile that I’ve posted so far but I do want a manageable start and a couple of books are also e-books. Plus, I’ll probably be adding to the list as I go along.

My June TBR:

[TBR] Plan to read in April 2017

I managed to read all the books I put on my March TBR and having a set TBR wasn’t as stressful as I feared, so I’ll be trying to do the same again this month. I’m hoping to add more books to this list but we’ll see – it’s a start anyway!

My April TBR:

[List] Man Booker International Prize Longlist 2017

The longlist for the Man Booker International Prize 2017 was announced last week and I’ve been looking into the books that made it on there. I have to admit that I’ve usually not paid a lot of attention to the Booker Prize (or all that many other prizes honestly). Little over a year ago I also wasn’t reading as much and as widely as I do now, so that probably has a lot to do with it as well. But since reading (and really loving) Han Kang’s “The Vegetarian” last year, which was the 2016 international winner, I made a mental note to make sure I properly check it out this year!

I probably won’t be reading everything on the longlist, but I’ve listed some books below that definitely have caught my attention and that I would love to read soon.

[TBR] Plan to read in March 2017

I put together a TBR-list for this month because this was the prompt for day 1 of the #MarchDelirium challenge on Instagram. I haven’t actually put together any structured TBRs for each month before, I’ve just picked my reads as I went, but seeing it this way I realize I quite like the look of my list. So, this year I actually think I’m going to try to do this more often!

My March TBR:
