Marleen | 786 comments Quarterly challenges:
📚Q4 challenge “Anything goes”: I want to read books on my shelves with bookmarks in them, so books that I started once but never finished. I’ve created a separate Goodreads shelf for them in preparation.

Marleen | 786 comments Group books:
📚I want to read the October group book, The Starless Sea Didn’t get around to it but I’ve put it on my TBR for later.
📚I might read the November group book, The Zodiac Killer Decided against it because of the ratings and reviews.

oshizu | 5605 comments Marleen, every time I see your avatar I'm reminded of the cover for Gods of Jade and Shadow.
What a great idea to finish reading books with bookmarks in Q4!

Looking forward to reading Things in Jars with you and our other reading buddies in November.

P.S. If you're wondering how I got here, I saw your thread pop up in my Notifications and followed the link here. :D

Thanks for ‘dropping by’ oshizu! I didn’t know that book but I can see the similarity of the cover to my little bookcase-with-filter haha. Looking forward to Things in Jars too!

Marleen | 786 comments Books to read soon(ish):
A bit of a planning post, because I don’t want to forget prioritizing these. If I can fit some of these in before the end of the year that’s great, but I definitely want to make sure I get to these early in 2021.

📚Continuing series:
The Obelisk Gate
The Dragon Republic
The Secret Commonwealth (possibly reread original trilogy first?)
Shadow's Edge
Lirael

📚Books from my physical owned TBR:
Any bookmarked books (my books-i-started-but-never-finished shelf) that I don’t manage to read for the Anything Goes quarterly challenge.

📚Other:
Warbreaker (I want to get started on Brandon Sanderson soon)

Marleen | 786 comments 2021 plans:
📚Prioritize ongoing series (see previous post) and physical owned TBR.
📚Participate in several yearly challenges. Currently thinking about doing: Popsugar, TBR jar, Listopia, Clear the shelves, Serial Reader.
📚TBR twin every other month?
📚Group reads when I can fit them in.
📚Don’t over-commit on buddy reads. One a month or two short ones at most.
📚Track books bought in bullet journal to make sure it’s under control.
📚Goodreads goal: 40 books?
