Last year, I set myself a summer TBR that I wanted to get through during my vacation. As I expected, I failed miserably and only read a few books on that list. Oops. So you know what, I’m setting myself another TBR this year. Totally expecting to fail miserably again. Woop woop!
My vacation will start with another 24 in 48 readathon, so first up I needed to decide what my TBR for that readathon would be. Luckily that is basically the easiest part to calculate as I know how much time I would end up reading. My summer TBR thus started with five books.
After the readathon, I will be home for two days after which I would head out to London for YALC for six days. Those are eight days where I probably won’t find a lot of time for reading. There is a long train ride in there though… I don’t want to end up lugging a heavy book around at YALC (I’ll already be caring enough books as it is) so for these eight days, I’m adding two books to the TBR, one 500-pager and one 250-pager, somehow that makes sense in my head.
The big problem lies in the six days after YALC. Last year I stopped picking up books from my TBR and just started reading those shiny new books I got. (In case you’re thinking it, yep, I’m also wondering why I even try to set a TBR for this vacation…) Those six days should amount to about three books. Am I allowed to just say that I’ll read three books, undefined for now? OF COURSE I CAN.
And with all that weird reasoning, I can present to you, my 2018 summer vacation TBR:
What do you think of the selection of books I’m reading during my vacation? And what about you, which books are you reading? Is there a certain kind of book you prefer reading during the Summer? Let me know in the comments!
