TMST: How's the TBR list coming along?


Oh, it's been a long time since I've posted a Tell Me Something Tuesday and, I have to say, it's lovely to be doing so!

This week's question is a TBR Update: How's your list coming along?
 Well, isn't that a loaded question! 😂 
Anyone who knows me knows that I don't do TBR lists as I'm a moody moose mood-reader and TBRs serve only one purpose for me: Guaranteeing that whatever I read it won't be what's on the list!

So, I'm giving the question a slightly different slant and focusing on my NetGalley percentage/books as that's kinda like a TBR only my brain doesn't react to it in the same way it does a TBR! 😉

My NetGalley percentage is currently at 65%, so it's not great... But it could be worse! 
So, my mission, at the moment, is to focus on my ARCs and get that percentage back up to at least 80%.

Part of me thinks it won't take too long as I have some books on there I'm super excited about, such as:

Beneath These Cursed Stars by Lexi Ryan
The Dixon Rule by Elle Kennedy
Love at First Knight by Megan Clawson
Hearts on Thin Ice by Katie Kennedy

But, the more recent books aren't really the problem.
The problem is the books that I requested forever ago and, for various reasons, I never got around to reading/reviewing. Those are the ones I really need to read and get off the list, such as:

Georgie, All Along by Kate Clayborn
To Charm a Dark Prince by Kathryn Ann Kingsley
The Unfortunate Side Effects of Heartbreak and Magic by Breanne Randall
When a Duke Loves a Governess by Olivia Drake

Tackling the backlog/overdue reviews will be what makes the difference!

I'll probably do a bit of both to sort it out as I'm excited for the upcoming releases, I've reignited my enthusiasm for some of the backlist (due to new books in the series peaking my interest etc.) and I'll try to browse my NetGalley shelf when "in a mood" to see if anything amongst the dusty and forgotten fits the bill before browsing my owned books... Or worse, looking and buying a new one! 🙈

What's your TBR (or NetGalley) looking like?



  1. I read Georgie and Heartbreak & Magic. I liked both. Good luck knocking out some of those older books.

  2. I don't have a TBR. I just read whatever my mood tells me to read, But having said that, my reading has been abysmal and everything is a TBR book a this point lol It's nice to see you posting again!
