What’s the first book you want to pick up in 2022?


This is my January tbr! And yes, it’s surprisingly small. I wasn’t expecting this but hey, we’re going for it!

We of course have my monthly Skulduggery Pleasant read, and also I’m going to be reading a chapter a day of another classic with @oliviascatastrophe this year! We’re going to be reading The Count of Monte Cristo together and I’m so excited to get back into this routine, it was one of my favourite parts of 2021!

Amari and the Night Brothers somehow manages to fit every single one of the prompts for @griff.reads Goodreads Choice Readathon, not sure how I winged that but I’m running with it (and if I manage to smash my tbr I have other books lined up for the various prompts)

Last but not least, a little sneak peak into the December @illumicrate book because A Marvellous Light is my last read! I’ve never really used Discord, nor been part of a large group reading, but I want to try it out with my first month of the book box and I’m hoping it’ll be a lot of fun!

I hope that whatever books you pick for your January 2022 tbr you’re super excited for and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on them!!

My January TBR| 2019

It’s the start of a new year, and it’s also the start of my assignment deadlines at university. In January I have two exams and a pretty big project, as well as other things due in next month, so I don’t know how much time I’ll have to read. Because of this I’m making my tbr even smaller than my December one! I’m only planning on reading one book this month. Now to be fair, it’s a chunker.

Ken Follett’s Fall of Giants comes in at over 800 pages in my copy, and the writing ain’t big! But I brought this book with me down to my university for this very reason. I was hoping that not bringing many books down would result in me reading some big books I had been avoiding. Instead, I went to the library and also bought more books… so that didn’t work. But this time this is the only book on my tbr, I’m going to read it!

I won’t be mad if I don’t finish it, I’d just like to make a decent dent in it. I also am not going to stop myself from picking up some other smaller books if I get the desire, this is just my main focus for the month.

I don’t think I’ve ever set a tbr for only one book but I really hope that I can do everything this month and get great results on my assignments, as well as reading as much as I can of this tomb and hopefully enjoying it!
