Three TBR jar titles
1) Little White Lies by Jodie Esch – Read
2) An Abundance of Katherines by John Green – Starting this weekend
3) Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen

It’s halfway through the month and I’d say I’m about halfway through my TBR list too. Excuse me while I give myself a pat on the back. I’m still a little up in the air about whether or not I like doing these. On one hand, I do feel like I HAVE to get these books read (but not in a way that’s unenjoyable necessarily). There’s just a little added pressure to read. On the other hand, I like having the structure and it keeps me from the “staring at the refrigerator” syndrome. “Mom, there’s nothing to eat (read)….”And it gives me a sense of accomplishment too! Anyway, still deciding.

How are your TBR lists going?
