Latest Book Haul & TBR Check In #1

Hello Fellow Readers,

I hope you are having a lovely weekend so far and enjoying the Spring weather.

I have taken some time off work so I had some time to finally dedicate time to personal admin stuff. I came to the conclusion it is time I put myself on a book ban. No more books, until I go through at least a half of the ones I have (I think “half” is a more realistic compromise than “all the books I got”). I think the unread pile-of-books situation I got is getting out of control. My impulse to request whatever book with a pretty cover I see on NetGalley doesn’t help. Even right now, while I am writing this piece, I am fighting an inward battle with myself to prevent me from requesting something (specifically Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim).

So, I thought, it would be helpful for me to write this post every month from now on, as a way to keep me accountable.

I have a few books on pre-order, and they are staying. Same for book subscriptions, I will still keep them.

April Book Haul

I am sorry, I pre-ordered Blessed Monsters ages ago, and I am aware of all the controversy regarding the writer. I still want to know where it will go. The second book was terrible, but I want to know how much worse it will get. Red Wolf is actually a physical arc. House of Hollow is a signed copy I bought together with the ticket for a virtual event and The Bright & The Pale came with the March FairyLoot box.


These are my latest NetGalley approvals. I am so excited to read all of them. I am currently reading These Hollow Vows and it’s fantastic!

TBR Check In

Titles I will delete from my TBR:

I came to the conclusion that, if I haven’t read these books during the last couple of years, it’s probably time to be honest with myself and admit I have no intention to read them in the very near future. Luckily they are in my Kindle so they don’t take much space, but still… I feel bad. Also, you can see from these titles how I used to read whatever, but then the weight of the world was too much to bare, and I chose my form of escapism: YA books.

Titles I added to my TBR:

These are the latest books I added to my TBR after being inspired by you guys and your lovely posts. I just hope I will get to read them soon, hahaha.

At the end of April my physical TBR pile of books have come to: 47 books. 😱

That’s it guys. Let the book ban start!

Share in the comment your tips. How do you keep track of your TBR? Do you check it regularly?

  1. My physical TBR pile of books has come to 49 books this month. So, I totally get you when you say it’s out of control! 😄
    I should start a book ban too. I haven’t ordered any books in the last two weeks, so that’s some progress. Let’s see if I can lower it to at least 30ish.
    I’m so curious about Warrior of the Wild!
