Reading Challenge: Summer TBR Wipeout


Like most Book Bloggers, I do yearly challenges but I don’t often do time-limited challenges or very many readathons throughout the year.

When I saw this challenge on the Candid Cover, I thought this was a great idea! Sometimes, I need that little kick in the butt to get those titles down and having a plan/goal works well for me. I can’t wait to get some things done!

How it works:

You do not have to run a book blog or a website for that matter. All that I ask is that you create your posts on some sort of social media website, such as Instagram, Facebook or Tumblr, etc. You can also read backlist books, ARCs, new releases, audiobooks,  or anything else that has been beckoning you to read it. There will be 4 posts in total that you can link up to here on The Candid Cover.

My Reading Time Frame: July 8 – August 19, 2017

Thanks to this event, I was able to do a bit of a midterm review of how my reading is going so far. While I’m knocking my Goodreads challenge out of the park (meaning I’m reading wayyyy more books than I expected to this year so yay!), I feel like I’m not always reading the titles I should be. I’ve been a little swept into some request/ARC madness and been a little too “checkout now” happy when browsing my library’s eBook section. I want to get back to reading those titles that have been sitting on my Kobo for months and reading some of those “much anticipated” sequels I couldn’t wait to release last year.

I’m going to keep my plan for this TBR Wipeout a little general so I can have some flexibility. I try to do the Make Me Read It Readathon every July (hopefully it’s happening this year!) and that’s when I get title specific. So for this, I’m going to create some general goals and highlight some priority titles for each category.

My Plan:

  • No ARC requests!
    • I’ve closed requests until September so I can focus on those TBR titles
      • That means I’m limiting my hosting and review copy sign-ups as well!
  • Finish (at least) 3 Series
    • Hopefully I can knock off some oldies but goodies this summer!
  • Read Sequels for (at least) 2 Previously Started Series
    • Waiting a 1+ for the sequel is not something I’m good at remembering!
  • Read 1 Classic Novel
    • I was doing so well at the start of the year but flopped once my new job started
  • Binge Read 1 Series from start to end!
    • I feel like I don’t get to do this anymore!

Priority Reads:

Endure (Need, #4) The Rising (Darkness Rising, #3) Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin, #2) Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)

What plans are you making for your Summer TBR?

  • Wow!!! You are getting a head start and I am so impressed that you aren’t going to request any ARCs. I try to limit my requests, but sometimes it is just so darn tempting. I will have the link to add your post up on my blog on July 1st and there will also be more points available on the rafflecopter at that time, too. I can’t wait to see how your summer reading plans go for you! 🙂

    • It’s SO HARD to say no! I love discovering new reads so I feel bad saying no. But I really have to get back on track with reading the books I already have 🙂

  • Shatter Me is SO amazing! My library has gotten in the whole trilogy now so I think I’m going to have to reread Shatter Me so I can finally read the other two books!

    Best of luck and happy reading!
