Monthly Reads highlights the books I've got in my TBR for that month. It's a way of sharing the ones I'm excited for and trying to relieve the pressure of "having" to read an ARC or new release.
Yes, I did skip December - I was trying to get a post done, but it was so late in the month and I had no idea what kind of time I had or what books I wanted to read that I finally decided not to do one about 12 days in. As much as it killed me to not have consistency, it was for the best. Now onto better things:
I know the point of this feature was so I could not feel so pressured for review books, but I am totally breaking that this month. I made some commitments, and then other commitments came in much earlier than planned...basically, this entire month are books that need to be read because I am on deadline, or they're borrowed, or I've got an interview planned, or something. That's NOT to say I don't want to read these! I'm actually really happy to have that sort of pressure on me this month, because these are all books I'm SUPER SUPER excited for.
