Grey’s Shelves // My Book Shelf: Am I a Joke To You? – Owned TBR Check-In

Thriving - Explanation - Grey's Shelves

2019 was meant to be the year I caught up on my owned TBR.

And instead, I just bought more books.

But to be fair to myself I did actually read quite a few of the books on my owned TBR as well!

In 2018 I made up an Owned TBR post with all the books I have on my shelves waiting to be read so today we’re going to be going through to see how I did!

I’ll be posting a new updated Owned TBR list soon to try and keep holding myself accountable to read the books I already own instead of borrowing too many books from the library!

If you would like to buy any of the following books please consider using my Book Depository Affiliate link!

Thriving - Keys - Reading Status + Unhauled

Basically, the waiting emoji just means I haven’t read the book before it and/or am waiting for all the books in the series to come out/own before I begin the series.

I’ll be striking out any books I’ve read, with the date read next to them in green.

I’ll also be striking out books I’ve unhauled, with a rough date of unhauling them in pink.

And I’ll be striking out books I’ve DNF’d, with a date in blue.

Wow! I didn’t realise how well I did at catching up on ARCS from 2018!

Well, I knew but didn’t really know, you know?

I’ve 100% fallen behind again but still! Look at all those books marked as read!

I only read two and technically I didn’t even read it either on Kindle, I borrowed The Backstagers from the library as Vol 1 and I listened to Brand New Me on Audible but whatever, I read them so they’re getting crossed off the list!

I’ve also since bought Nevernight in paperback so I’ll probably read it that way instead.

Vicious is a reread that I was waiting until I had the second book to do, but now I have the second book and it was the first book I picked up for the year but didn’t make it to the first read book of the year. That honour ended up going to Sadie.

I’m finally reading The Raven Cycle! It’s so good and I’ve roped my mum and cousin into reading the series too! In fact my cousin has already finished the series and my mum is gaining ground quickly because I’m not ready for it to end so I’ve been putting off TRK for months.

I unhauled quite a few here which is good but there’s still so many, I cry.

I have started the Percy Jackson series though, so that’s something I guess???

I’ve since bought the rest of the books in A Song of Ice and Fire series and now that the show is over, I’m just waiting for George R.R. Martin to finish the book series.

I also unhauled quite a few books.

Every time I thought of reading ACOWAR I remembered I had to read ACOTAR and ACOMAF to remember what had happened going in but I really didn’t want to reread ACOTAR and I realised it was time to let this series go.

I also recently bought the last book from The Dark Artifices series so no more excuses but dear god, they’re all so big and scary.

And look! I read three books from this section, go me!

I honestly thought I had read more from this list than I actually have.

What’s on your TBR?
Do you keep on top of it?
Do we have any of the same books?
