TBR 2020 September Update

It is that time of the season again, time for me to see how well I did on my seasonal TBR, and to talk you through all the books I hope to read in the upcoming months.

This is the last post of the year sharing my new 2020 seasonal TBR, isn’t that crazy? I feel like honestly the year went by really quick but that’s probably because 4 months out of this year don’t count, you know? Although, reading wise, I did great in those four months… So yeah, maybe they do count.

Anyway, I already know I did pretty bad on my summer TBR, mostly because I hardly read anything in summer. But I am hoping to pick it back up over the next 3 months, I definitely have some exciting reads lined up for myself!

My summer TBR

As always, let’s have a look at what I planned on reading these past 3 months first. I quite honestly can hardly even remember.. Oops.

Okay, so you know what? I didn’t do so bad after all. I actually read a few of these.

Spoiler alert for my September TBR, but I actually finished The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas this month, and I have made very good progress in The Eules Of Magic as well which I hope to finish very soon as well. I also read The Boyfriend Project and An Almost Perfect Holiday last month, so that is not actually too bad. I didn’t end up reading The Water Dancer and Red, White & Royal Blue though, sadly, because I actually was pretty excited for both of them but reading wasn’t my strong side these past few months.

I also didn’t get to The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock and Winter again this season, both have been on my TBR since spring or winter even. I don’t know if I will get to The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock this year, but as you know I still hope to read Winter this month as part of my September reading challenge.

Assuming I will actually end up finishing that one before the end of the month, non of these books will stay on my TBR for autumn/winter. Instead, I have a very seasonally appropriate list 🙂

My autumn and winter TBR

See, told you it was seasonally appropriate?! We have some scary October reads, some autumnal nostalgia and even a Christmas book that I will obviously save for December. I won’t lie, I am pretty pleased with myself.

Let’s start with my creepy October books. I hauled Echo by Thomas Olde Heuvelt last month and I think I already mentioned in that post that I will definitely try to read that one in October, so of course it made it’s way onto my TBR for the last 3 months of the year. And because I want more than one book option for the month, I also added The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson to the list. Halloween reads sorted.
For autumnal nostalgia, which, yes, is a category in my TBR, I added Harry Potter. The fifth book is part of my September reading challenge and I am hoping to read the last few books this year as well. There is just something about the colder months that get me in a Harry Potter mood, I don’t know why.

Ah, the Christmas book. I got The Penguin Book Of Christmas Stories for Christmas last year, and because by then the holiday was over, I pretty much already added it to my TBR for this Christmas season. Obviously, I am saving this for December, but as soon as December first hits (and I have finished the book I am reading then), I start the first story in this one.
I also plan on continuing my Agatha Christie binge read. I got a couple new books of hers this month, and I already have a hard time not diving right in so I naturally had to add them to my TBR. I am not sure if I will start with this one or the other book of hers I got, but I have a little more time to figure that out.
The last book I hope to read, or at least start in the next few months is A Treasury Of Irish Fairy And Folk Tales. I have had it for a year now, and still haven’t started with any of the stories, so I figured this autumn would be the perfect time to start. Just a story here and there before bed, or in between books. I don’t expect to finish it this year, but I would at least love to start it. And how beautiful would this look on my bedside table?!

Well, I have a lot of reading to do in the next few months.. But I am excited for all these books, so I don’t think it will be a problem to get sucked into them. Will I manage to get to all of them? Probably not, but I will try!

Thanks for stopping by ❤
