Me and TBR’s have never had a good relationship. I have the best of intentions at the start of the month but I never end up reading all of the books I set myself. I try giving myself a huge pile to read and it never works and then I try giving myself smaller ones and then that doesn’t end up working.
I have a huge lack of discipline when it comes to reading my own books. When it comes to review books I am fine. I requested them, someone else could have had the copy to review and it would be unfair if I didn’t review them.
Another thing I have found is that when you make a TBR and announce/share it on the usual Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, it is set in stone. I have no idea why, but it sets the idea in motion that I now HAVE to read them no matter what. What was a past time has suddenly begins to feel like a chore. I then abandon the TBR and just pick books up as and when I feel like reading them.
Looking back at that paragraph, it is kinda pathetic. Talk about lack of discipline. I have talked to fellow bloggers, however, and they have said similar things to me!
