April TBR: keeping an open mind

April 3, 2020

Another new month means another new TBR!

The themes for this month’s TBR are…

  1. ContemporApril — come join us at Devour Your TBR on Goodreads while we focus on contemporary reads!
  2. Buddy and group reads! As you’ll see, I joined quite a few for this month.
  3. 30 in 30 — this isn’t an official readathon or challenge or anything, but Ellyn over at Allonsythornraxx invited me to join her in trying to read 30 books in 30 days this month, and I decided I’ll give it a shot!

The reason for the title of this post, though, is the biggest theme for this month: I decided to go back to keeping my official TBRs pretty small, so I leave plenty of room for mood reading!

Now, you can watch my monthly TBR videos instead of reading the list, if you’d like! While the list in this post is very bare-bones, the video goes into plots of each book, why I chose it, etc., so it has a lot more information! (just click the thumbnail)

Now, on to my TBR!

Just a horror aficionado/geek girl trying to juggle motherhood, reading, blogging, gaming, and everyday life.

    1. Ghost Squad is my most anticipated read this month! I hope we both enjoy it 🙂 (Also am I correct in understanding you cut your own hair?! It’s so cute!! I wish I could cut my own hair; that would be really helpful rn lol.)

      1. Did you end up enjoying Ghost Squad? I can’t believe I haven’t picked it back up yet but I need to! And thank you so so much! Yes, I cut it myself. 🙂 I didn’t trust anyone with my hair through my teens and early 20s, and that came back in handy when I decided I desperately needed a change lmao!

        1. Yes, it’s a pretty quick and fun read! Some nice spooky bits, with graveyards and thunderstorms, as well. That is definitely a handy skill to have right now, haha. My hair is the longest it has been in 10 years rn :O

      I always laugh at our differing definitions of smaller TBRs haha. BUT I have seen your typical monsters! I hope this month is full of excellent reads, love!

      1. THANK YOU!!! <3 I've been feeling super self-conscious about the cut this week so seeing this comment was actually really nice ??
        Bahahah I seriously need to stop making huge TBRs because they clearly do not work for me anymore!! Thank you love, I hope April was good to you and that May will be even better!
