If you’ve been reading my blog for, basically any length of time, you’ll notice that I don’t make monthly TBRs (I DID make a summer TBR but that is a different thing that I’m not talking about right now). (And yes I’m posting this the same day as my Book-Tube-A-Thon TBR but…Shut up!)
A lot of you might question this choice, especially because TBRs are such a staple of book blogging. But I do have my reasons. Well…reason.
My reason is this: I don’t like being told what to do.
Phased differently: I am bad at life/bad at following directions.
What I mean by this is, even when I myself am telling myself to do the thing/read the book, my inner stubborn toddler who only knows the word NO rebels and decides I cannot listen to my own directions. So, TBR just ever seem to work for me. Even when I made them, I would get to one book on the list and then either read books entirely different from the TBR or hit a reading slump in my resistance OF the TBR.
Since this was such a common thing, I just decided not to post/make TBRs anymore. If I can’t follow them, there is no point. I just never know what I’ll be in the mood to read that month.
So tell me, am I alone in this? Does anyone else face this problem or a similar one? Or do I sound like a crazy person? Let me know! Please!
