Joining #ClearUrSht to take down my Owned TBR! πŸ“š 2.5 Mini Readathon

ClearUrSht Signup

Hello fellow bookworms πŸ“š It has been a goal for me to take down my Owned TBR in 2022 and so far I’m doing much better than in the past years! However, I still read more library books than owned books when I compared them at the end of the month. I struggle with having had books on my physical TBR for years – something which increasingly bothers me as I have mostly lost my initial excitement for them. I’m slowly taking down my TBR shelf at home, but I could always use a push. Therefore, I couldn’t help but finally join in with ClearUrsh*t (2.5 Mini Readathon) happening this June πŸ’–

I’m late to the party as the Readathon has been happening since 2020 and while I saw it around (and thought it looked cool), I was distracted by other things. Usually, the main Readathon takes place during November & December (aka 8 weeks), but luckily for me, there is also a Mini Readathon in June, that only spans 4 weeks! As you might have guessed, the Readathon is all about reading your unread owned books, so exactly what I need! There is a storyline, a bingo board, and prompts that are based on the story, but you can read a recap on the website, which is what I did! Everything is pretty flexible to your needs and you can count whatever feels right! The Readathon is hosted by Andee/Mouse @ Mouse Reads and Art @ inkandplasma. I discovered it through Andee because I have been loving their Booktube channel πŸ₯°

πŸ’« My Guidelines & Goals πŸ’«

➽ I’m super excited to be sharing my TBR down below! You can double up on prompts but I’m trying to read a book per prompt if possible. I have become a bigger mood reader over years, so I have a selection of 4 books per prompt (though I have a favorite that I’m most likely to read, it’ll be underlined.) I have filled out the bingo board with my most likely choices as well. All the books mentioned in this post are the ones I’m most excited about right now and therefore want to tackle the most 😊

What I’m counting for the Readathon

  • Books on my Physical TBR & Kindle TBR πŸ“šπŸ“± (so no rereads)
  • My preorder that comes out June 7th βœ‰οΈ (the book is already out but I wanted the paperback)
  • Digital Arcs on my Kindle ⏳ (since I technically ‘own’ them)
  • Audiobooks from my library 🎧 (I rely on them a lot right now & I don’t have the funds to purchase any via, as my library already has a good selection)

  1. Good luck with your tbr! I’m looking forward to reading Amelia Diane Coombs books, they sound like different YA romances than I’m used to reading! I’ve been meaning to finish SO MANY YA BOOKS (too many to name), right now a summer goal I’m trying to prioritize is reading & reviewing arcs before release to stay on schedule with reviewing more. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜… What a great read Caro!
