Chealsea Reads I'm the type of reader who doesn't make tbrs and honestly couldn't stick to one if I tried. I read in the moment, picking up whichever book captures my interest, sometimes ending up with two or three pending reads at a time. That being said, I've been watching other people's posts and it seemed like it might be fun to share what's going on in my corner of the reading world and maybe inspire someone else to pick up a piece of literature they hadn't thought of trying out before. So instead of making a real plan I decided I'll just leave this here and fill in the blanks as I go.

Ana A (anabana_a) | 473 comments Nice, an Avatar book! I finished "The Rift" this year.

Zaz | 3034 comments No problem in putting the books when you read them rather than planning in advance. So far, your choices are ones I read or will probably read at some point, so it's nice to follow your books ;)

I got nostalgic and bought all three bind ups. I plan to read the rest, but I was a little let down by the first one. I'd hoped it would feel more like the show did.

The Plans are my favorite part of this group and honestly maybe the worst because my tbr is long enough to cross oceans now and I'm dying a little inside xP
