I am still in a slump so I keep making TBRs and simply not adhering to them but I am desperately hoping the arbitrary cutoff of the New Year will magically end my slump so here we are. In any case, it’s a very small, manageable TBR (6 books!). Also, gotta love how one of my main goals for 2022 is to read more adult secondary world fantasy and there is not a single adult secondary world fantasy on this list. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Anyway. Onto the books!

Happy SPOOKY SEASON, also known as THE BEST TIME OF THE YEAR. For me Spooky Season starts on September 1st and ends sometime around the end of November, so I’ve got a good three months to tackle this TBR, but even so, it’s extremely ambitious and it’s highly unlikely I will read all of these unless my slumpy mood suddenly improves rapidly and significantly. (Also, there are a bunch of season new releases coming out in the next few months that may impact this TBR. We shall see.)
Also, I’m doing something slightly different this year, in an attempt to make a dent in the books I physically own, so the majority of these books are off my physical TBR! I kind of went through my bookshelves and picked out all the books I need to read that are seasonally appropriate.
This is one of my absolute favorite posts to make; I love thinking about what seasonal books I’m going to read for my favorite time of the year, and I’m really excited about all of these books I’ve chosen!

If you want a little more context, check out Part 1 of this post, but basically, over the past couple of years I bought a lot of Kindle books on sale, and then completely forgot I owned them. I’m making these posts as a kind of accountability TBR so that I can refer back to them to see what books I actually own. Also, one of my yearly reading goals is to read more indie/obscure books, which a lot of these Kindle books tend to be!
Here’s to another list of totally random books!

I’m getting better at resisting Kindle Daily Deals, but back in the day (like…a year or two ago) I would buy so many Kindle books on sale. They would then sit buried on my Kindle, languishing and forgotten, and so I have ended up accumulating a ridiculous amount of them. It’s difficult to remember what I actually have, so rather than making a boring spreadsheet, I thought I would make a post here for some accountability. And also! A lot of these Kindle titles happen to be either indie or more obscure books, and for next month I was thinking of reading exclusively underhyped books, so it would be good to have a clear list I can refer to.
This was not initially going to be broken up into two separate posts, but I had not realized the sheer number of books I would have! While it would be nice to have a single, organized post, it would be far too large and unwieldy in the long run, and would probably break a slower internet connection. So, two posts it is!

I’ve been doing this themed TBR for the past couple of years, where I try to read only or mostly black authors in the month of February, and I guess it’s becoming an annual tradition! These books are all on my TBR anyway — some of them have been on there for a very long time — so this is a good chance to prioritize them. There’s ten books on this list, some of them sizeable fantasies, so I highly doubt I’ll be able to read all of them, especially since my reading so far is much slower than it was last year, but at least I’ll have a nice selection to pick from!
