I think sometimes there is SO much hype around TBR lists, getting excited to read the next book and planning buddy reads so much so that you have to make a list because you’re going to forget which book, when and which booksta buddy.

Don’t get me wrong, I think the community here is lovely, and I love how Bookstagram can keep us connected by books, and keep us excited.

But sometimes, I personally feel like I forget the enjoyment of the now. I forget to think about the literary pleasure of the book I’m reading RIGHT NOW. Cos let’s not forget, at some point that was the “next book” you were excited to read.

So, if you excuse the pun (actually, don’t, I think that’s the point!!!).. reading should be something to live for. So, yes plan all wonderful things book related, but read and live NOW, and soak up the love for the book you are currently reading, without thinking – OMG I NEED TO FINISH THIS OTHERWISE X, Y, X WILL HAPPEN.

Read.. for pleasure, not a plan

❤️

  1. Completely agree Katie!! Tbr lists stress me out too much sometimes so I’m trying to go with the flow a bit more and just pick up what I fancy reading next instead of being so regimented xx
