Monday Mumbles: 2016 TBR List

As 2015 comes to an end, I’m looking forward toward my 2016 goals. This includes my goals for reading. Last year my total goal was 250, and I easily surpassed that. I’m currently over 300 for the year. So, surpassing that will be my challenge for next year.

Also, as I mentioned in my Best of 2015 post a couple weeks ago, I want to branch out more. Particularly in my LGBT reading. Last year, it was mostly G&B. So, I’ll be looking at reading more f/f at least. Everything I read last year was m/m(and one m/m/f).

I already have plenty on my TBR list. I have 13 books sitting on top of my desk right now. wp-1451323180919.jpgAnd I have 5 more books coming in the next couple of weeks. 2 of those should be here tomorrow(although it’s still saying Saturday even though it’s been transferred to USPS in Erie, which means it should be here tomorrow).


And that’s just the physical copies I have. I have 88 in my TBR folder on my kindle. Those are the ones I’ve added to my list and bought(or that I’ve bought when someone posted about it. As long as it wasn’t free). Then, I have 62 in my ‘free’ folder. And I have another 10 from Kindle Unlimited. That folder gets refilled to 10 at the beginning of every month.

Needless to say, I have plenty to read for next year. And more books will likely(I say that like there’s a chance it won’t happen, although we all know better) be added throughout the year. And I still have over $50 on my amazon account from Christmas.

Fiction Friday: Top 2015 Books

Note: These are books I’ve read this year that I’ve enjoyed. That’s really all the criteria there is.

According to Goodreads, I’ve read 300 books so far this year. My goal was 250, so this is pretty good. 63 of those were audiobooks. At least 12 of those ones were novellas, between 2-4ish hours. So, that’s still over 200 actual books I’ve read this year. The majority of those were e-books, though there was likely a number of paperbacks as well. I’ll be sorting them out between audible, ebook, and paperback as well as between genres.

*could also be categorized under LGBT(or really in the case of the ones I’ve read just GB. Hope to branch out more with that next year). I debated about marking Nothing Between Us(it’s a m/m/f), but Colby is bisexual and open about it, and Keats explores that, so I decided to.

So, if I counted correctly, that’s 56 books on my list(those are all my 5 star ratings on Goodreads). You may notice some trends in the lists. Like a good amount of romance. And a few author names that kept repeating.
