Cora’s TBR Challenge Check-In

Eleven months down, fellow readers. Are you going to make your TBR Challenge goal this year?

I’m unsure, as usual 🙂 Checking my Goodreads shelf for this year’s challenge, I can see that I haven’t read a thing during the entire month of November. Not even a comfort re-read. It’s just been a sort of blah month–the weather in Michigan this time of year is notoriously gloomy, which isn’t helpful either–and I suspect the weight of everything that’s happened this year (both to the world at large and to me personally) has been pressing me down, making even things like just doing the laundry that much harder.

But all is not lost. My goal for this year was 20 TBR books (of which I’ve read 12) and 30 books overall (of which I’ve managed 21 so far), so while I’m behind schedule on both counts, I can still catch up. The sun is coming out as I type this, too, so perhaps my energy level will rebound a bit and I’ll find a book buried deep in my TBR that captures my interest 🙂

  1. I have the same goal of 20 books this year as well! I didn’t think I was going to make it but I got a second wind and have read 23 books thus far. Stunned really, because of the difficult year we all have been having. Wishing 2021 the best! happy reading, Cora!


    1. I’m still hoping for my second wind, but I usually do get one in December. I think it’s the looming deadline that gets my brain going, lol. Happy holidays to you, too, and here’s hoping 2021 is better than its predecessor!


  2. Hi Cora! I must have missed your email somehow! I can imagine you must be feeling a little down, missing your grandma. November was not a banner month for me. As you know, I’m not counting rereads toward my goal and I was in the mood to read Jennifer Ashley’s Mackenzies. I read the first 4 books, but it doesn’t count for GR. I have made zero progress on my actual TBR for your challenge, either! I’ve read 98 of 150 for the GR challenge and there aren’t enough days left. LOL. Unless I read exclusively novellas. Oh, well. Next year I will go back to counting rereads. That works much better for me. My daughter is coming home from college on the 19th and I am taking some time off. Not sure if she will stay much past Christmas, since her boyfriend isn’t coming with her this year. He has 2 newly adopted cats that he can’t leave for too long. They don’t travel well, but we couldn’t have them here anyway because my husband is allergic. Enjoy the holidays!


    1. Sounds like reading is not going well for either of us this year, but I suppose that’s no surprise. Hopefully next year isn’t so hard.

      Have a merry Christmas with your daughter! And good for her boyfriend for adopting his kitties ❤
