We’re almost in 2022, so today I’m bringing you my TBR list for January! I’m not going to lie, A LOT happened in December, so my reading slowed down a bit. I planned on reading six books in December, but I only read 1 of the planned (plus a few more unplanned). With that said, I want to start fresh! I’m a big fan of TBR games and I follow some of them on Youtube, so I decided to make my own game.
So today I’m not only bringing my TBR, but I’m also introducing my new TBR wheel! I’ll be picking my books based on the prompts from this wheel – I’ll probably add/change some of the prompts with time, but I came up with a few already! So here you have the (very cool) TBR wheel:
Yes, all the prompts are pretty basic, but I wanted to add prompts that made sense to me and my reading habits. I think there’s a good balance between easy and challenging prompts, so I won’t be unmotivated – also, if you have any suggestions for prompts, let me know in the comments! In case you’re wondering, I’m using the “Spin the Wheel” application for Android.
I’m going to pick 5 books based on the prompts, so I’m going to spin the wheel now! Here are the results from the 5 spins:
Overall, I’m happy with this month’s prompts! I admit I’m a little scared about the intimidating book I will have to pick, but since all the other prompts are good, I’m happy to have one challenging prompt this month. Here are the books I came up for all the prompts:
- Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen (“Young Adult Book” prompt)
I was very happy when this prompt came out because I have a lot of YA books to read! I’m a huge Sarah Dessen fan, but I still have some of her books to read. So for this prompt, I picked the book “Lock and Key” for January. I just know I’m going to love it!
- Mooncakes by Suzzane Walker and Wendy Xu (“Friend Pick” prompt)
For the “Friend Pick” prompt, I have the graphic novel “Mooncakes“! This book was recommended to me by a friend on Instagram, so I’m picking it up in January. I’m curious about it because some readers liked it, but a lot of people didn’t… we’ll see how it goes!
- Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful Disaster #1) by Jamie McGuire (“Reread” prompt)
This prompt is the perfect opportunity to reread one of my favorite romances of all time (and also one of the first good romances I read). “Beautiful Disaster” is one of those books that really influenced my reading in a positive way, so I’m very happy to revisit this story. Also, this is a great opportunity to finally read the second book that came out afterwards! I never picked it up because I wanted to reread the original book.
- Night Over Water by Ken Follett (“Intimidating” prompt)
For the “Intimidating” prompt, I came up with the book “Night Over Water” by Ken Follett! A friend lent me this book, but since it’s not exactly the kind of book I usually pick up, I’m a bit apprehensive. I’ll do my best to read this and I’ll let you know my experience!
- Liar Liar (Helen Grace #4) by M.J. Arlidge (“Continue Series” prompt)
Another perfect prompt for my TBR list for January. I have a (small) commitment issue when it comes to long series – I know, I know… it’s something I’m working on! -, so this is the perfect opportunity for me to continue the “Helen Grace” series by M.J. Arlidge! I’ll be reading the 4th book in January 🙂
And there you have it: my TBR list for January. Let me know if you read any of these or if you have any TBR Games you play! Also, if you have more ideas for prompts, let me know 🙂
Thank you for reading, have a great day!
