So about a month ago, I wrote a blog post about my summer TBR.
I don’t usually make TBR’s because I don’t stick to them. Well surprise surprise, there’s some changes to be made to mine already.
The other post still stands though. I’m still trying to follow the original TBR. But I’ve come up with some small “goals” to achieve, which I’m calling mini-missions, because that somehow sounds more motivating.
Probably because I want to live in a fantasy story and giving myself missions makes it sounds that little bit more epic.
So here are the mini-missions that have changed my TBR already!
Read a classic.
For goodness sake Ashleigh. Just read one. That’s all. Not so hard?
All this year, I’ve been meaning to read more classics. Has that happened yet?
I bought Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall a while ago, and I still really want to read them both. But somehow, every single time I go to choose another book, the classics get pushed aside and I choose something else.
I think maybe it’s because I know they’ll take me much longer to read. But I need to get over that. I’m debating reading two books at the same time, so that I can choose whether to read something easy or tackle a classic. I feel like that might encourage me more. But then at the same time I know I’ll finish it quicker if I just read one book at a time like usual…ARGGHHH.
I don’t know.
Let me know what you think I should do.
Read the next Outlander book.
“I’ll read it during the summer when I have time” well guess what Ashleigh, it’s summer now. Get on it.
I’m sure everyone knows just how big the Outlander books are. It’s a little bit ridiculous.
But I adored Outlander when I read it in January. So I’m taking the same approach as I did with George RR Martin’s books – I’ll read one every few months until I’ve gotten through them all. That way, I won’t get too overwhelmed.
Well, it’s been a few months now. I’m ready. I need to take on Dragonfly in Amber. It’s staring at me from my shelf.
I need to ready my battle armour and take on those 1000+ pages one by one.
That got a bit weird.
Finish some series.
OK Ashleigh, you’re making progress with this one. But now’s the time to nail it.
Progress, progress, progress.
I’m gradually getting through the mammoth amount of series I’m in the middle of reading. But now I own a few series entirely, I can finish them off and tick a few off the list. My main aims?
– The Anna and the French Kiss series. I’m currently reading the 2nd book, so I’m nearly there.
– The Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children series. The 3rd book was finally released in paperback, so I can finally finish the series!
– The Lunar Chronicles. I’ve finished the series, but still need to read the Stars Above novellas.
Read the books that have been sat around longest.
They’re feeling neglected Ashleigh. You know you still want to read them. Now’s the time.
I’m pretty sure every bookworm has those books that have been sat around longer than the rest. I want to finally read mine.
– All the light we cannot see
– The next together
So there we have it!
Those are a few mini-missions I hope to achieve through my summer reading!
Disclaimer: I’m suffering from a migraine for the 2nd day in a row and so I’m not in the best of moods, so I’m really sorry if this post hasn’t been up to it’s usual standard of enthusiasm! I tried!
Do you have any mini-missions of your own this Summer?
Are there any books you’re really hoping to read this summer?
Also, let me know how you think I should tackle the first mission of mine!
Let me know in the comments!
Until next time…
