TBR vs What I Actually Read in July

Since I’ve been doing Recent Reads and Wrap Ups over on my BookTube channel, I thought it would be fun to compare my TBRs vs what I actually read here on my blog.

I’m a mood reader, however, I really like having a TBR every month to use as a guideline. The list of books that I own and need to read is kind of insane – not to mention my Audible Escape, Scribd, and Hoopla books that I want to read – so narrowing it down to dozen or so books that I want to focus on is helpful in choosing my next read. It also helps me make sure I’m reading more diversely.
