January 2021 TBR

Happy new year everyone!! Hope you all had a fantastic holiday season. Today I’m bringing you my TBR for January ❤️ I created a whole new Bookopoly board to better fit my tastes. The rules for me going forward are: 6 rolls every month, doubles count as extra rolls, and sticking to the prompt unless I can stretch a book to make it fit (lol). I’m still trying to come up with a punishment or challenge for myself if I don’t complete the books for that month. So I need your help for this. If you would be so kind, leave me some suggestions in the comments. Now onto what I rolled!

Roll 1: 5+4 so 9

I rolled a 9 which landed me on LGBTQIA+ rep, and I’m so glad because I can FINALLY read this book. Its been out for almost a year now lol why I haven’t I picked it up since I own it? No clue lol

Roll 2: 5+6 so 11

For this roll, I rolled an 11 and landed on Booktuber fave. Look. I’ve been saying I was going to read this for months now lol probably almost a year. I’ve even made it 100 pages in. I think this book just intimidates me. Not due to the size because I love big books. I think it’s the hype, and due to Nevermoor being a let down (I DNFed it) I’m afraid of this being the same. Hopefully I can finish it this month and let you all know my thoughts and feelings on it.

Roll 3: 1+4 so 5

For this roll, I rolled a 5 and landed on physical book. I put this down due to scribd acting up for me. For some reason, I’ve gotten so used to having the audiobooks while I read along physically that I seem to have forgotten how to read without one lol so hopefully I can get back to doing that so I can continue with this book.

Roll 4: 4+3 so 7

For this roll, I rolled a 7 and landed on middle grade fantasy. Anyone see a theme here? Lol I pretty much picked books thats I started so I can actually get them read. I have so many started that I need to get them finished.

Roll 5: 3+5 so 8

For this roll, I rolled an 8 and landed on Go. For this, I randomized my TBR (I have a tiny decision wheel with all my unread books). This, I believe, will actually be my first read of 2021! Plus I’ve never actually read past book 1 in this series so it’s about to time I do that.

Roll 6: 4+1 so 5

For my final roll, I rolled a 5 and landed on retelling. I know you are probably tired of seeing this pop up on my TBRs lol it went from highly anticipated, to a struggle read, to a DNF, and now it’s a second chance read. I think my problem is that I keep trying to compare it to the Splintered series and I need to stop that. Plus the author herself told me I would love the love interest in here based on my love of Morpheus in the other series. So I need to see if she is right lol

So there is my TBR for January. Have you read any of these? Did you like them? Did you not? Like previously stated, I need your help figuring out a punishment if I don’t complete this this month. As always, happy reading 💚
