What’s a TBR you may be asking?
TBR means “To Be Read”. It’s a list (or pile, or shelf) of books I want to read above and beyond the random stuff that be will read as the year goes on.
I have a Goodreads goal of 30 books for the year. I am well on my way to that, with 6 books already completed, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin and the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness among them.
I have been collecting new (and old) books to read for a while now. Some are the first books in a series, and if I enjoy those, I will, of course, finish the series out. One of the books, Good Omens, is a book I have read before and have thoroughly enjoyed. With a limited TV series set to come out on Amazon Prime this year, I figured I would re-familiarize myself with its prose.
Some of these books I bought new, some used. I’m going to be honest and say I probably wouldn’t have considered some of them if I had to buy them new. One of them was even written by someone I am vaguely acquainted with!
What is on your TBR list for the year?

A Darker Shade of Magic is amazing! It’s one of my favorite series.
