Diana (dkgreads) | 23 comments First time climber here! I’m excited that I found this group because I think it will help motivate me to stick to my 2019 goal of not buying any new books! My TBR is a mile high, y’all!

I think 36 books is a good start for me; I usually read 50-60 books per year, so this will give me a little wiggle room to work in a few new releases via the library here and there. I’m a mood reader, so I’m not going to plan a list of books up front, but I will post a monthly recap to keep y’all updated on my progress. I can’t wait to start my climb!

Diana (dkgreads) | 23 comments I went through my books yesterday to get a solid count on how many I haven’t read yet, and it’s not as bad as I thought! Only 282, LOL! Now to sort through my Kindle...

Diana (dkgreads) | 23 comments I finally made it through my Kindle and I have 428 unread ebooks! Add that to my physical TBR and my Christmas book haul, and I’m sitting at 728 books. At least I’ll have a variety to choose from, LOL!

Diana (dkgreads) | 23 comments Apparently January was the month of the library book, LOL. ALL of my holds came in at once, so I only managed to knock two books off my TBR. I haven’t put any more books on hold, so hopefully I’ll read more of my own books in February.

1. Skyward - Brandon Sanderson
2. Warcross - Marie Lu

Diana (dkgreads) | 23 comments FEBRUARY UPDATE
I’ve had the complete Partials Sequence trilogy by Dan Wells sitting on my kindle since the last book was published in 2014. I’m glad that I FINALLY got around to reading it! It’s so cinematic! It would make a great tv show if done right.

3. Partials
4. Fragments
5. Ruins

March was The Month of the Library Book. ALL of my holds came in at once. Again. The good news is that I powered through them and don’t have any more holds! April is going to be all about my TBR!
