We’re at the end of February, so it’s time for me to do my March TBR! I do have a little list of books I really want to read in March, so I was hoping the wheel would be kind to me. Want to see the results? Stick around and continue reading! But first, we’re going to look at how I did for my February TBR!
For February, I ended up with five books – three from prompts and two from genre picks. I got the prompt to read a signed but unread book, for which I chose A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab. The second prompt was to continue or finish a series, for which I chose The Empty Grave by Jonathan Stroud. The third spin gave me a genre: Horror. I picked Wilder Girls by Rory Power. Prompt number four got me to pick a book with a one-word title, for which I chose Skyward by Brandon Sanderson. And lastly, there was another genre, which was Mystery. For which I picked a reread: Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson.
I am proud to say I read all of these books! While I may not have read all the books on my complete TBR, I did at least read the five books picked for my wheel TBR so I am very happy about that. But without further ado, let’s see what March has in store for me!
The first prompt I got was to pick my lowest rated book. Since I have two separate TBR shelves – one for owned ebooks and one for owned physical books – I decided to check on each shelf which one was the lowest rated. Out of those, I picked an ebook – Mayan Mythology by Bernard Hayes.
This prompt was replaced by Book-to-Movie Adaptation.
Next, I got the prompt to read a random Kindle book. I decided to put all my unread ebooks into an online wheel and let it pick a title for me. This wheel was also very kind to me, as it those The Test by Sylvain Neuvel. Thank you, wheels, for being so nice.
This prompt got replaced by Phone a Friend.
My third prompt was to read a Boekenfestijn book. I have a list somewhere on my computer where I have all the books I got from this place listed and I ended up picking another short read – Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl.
This prompt got replaced by Highest Rated.
Then, I got my first genre pick of the month! The wheel chose a Mythology (retelling) and I am super happy with that, as I already had one on my initial TBR. I am going to read The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White!
And the last prompt was another genre, one of my least favourite genres of all… I got the Contemporary/Romance genre. I do own a couple of books that fit this genre, luckily, so I ended up picking one that was available as an audiobook as well – When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon.
As I’ve mentioned above, I also have a couple of other books I hope to read in March. I mainly have four books in the Artemis Fowl series that I want to read, so I can finish that series before the movie comes out. Then, I decided to torture myself and pick two more ways of making up my TBR. I have two mugs, one with all my unread ebooks and one with all my unread physical books. I’ll pick one book out of each of the mugs to put on my TBR. And then I got this idea from Emily Fox – I will pick one random shelf each month (out of the 15 that I have filled with books) and will pick one book every month to read. And then I have some rereads, two of which will be buddy reads (if my best friend decides to read SoC in March at least XD)
So the other books I want to read in March are: The Lost Colony, The Time Paradox, The Atlantis Complex, The Last Guardian, Red Sister (Moonies book of the month & ebook mug pick*), The Bone Season (physical mug pick), Catching Fire (Buddy read & reread), Ruin and Rising (reread), Six of Crows (possible buddy read), The Rise of Kyoshi (shelf pick).
* Technically, I picked the sequel out of my mug – as that is the book I own, but I have not read this book yet, so I’ll have to read this first.
What do you think? Am I going to be able to read all these books? Place your bets now!
