Let’s talk bookish is a weekly meme, created and hosted by J.R. @Eternity Books, were different topics will be discussed.
Again I couldn’t make last weeks topic since I had to post a post for Angel mage blog tour, which I really enjoyed! But I still wanted to discuss its topic ‘are TBR’s necessary to be considered a book blogger, or reader?’.
First of all, and most important, no! Why would you have to make a list with reading plans to be a book blogger/reader, that doesn’t make much sense to me!
But then, personally, I love making TBR’s! Not because I have to follow them, but I just like to make a list with books that I’m currently interested in and feel like reading. Of course it is satisfying at the end of the month to be able to say that you read everything on your TBR, but it is not needed. If you didn’t read anything from your TBR, you were probably not that interested in them, or more interesting books came along.
I think TBR’s are fun to make, and read from other readers to see what books they are currently interested in. But if TBR’s make you stress about reading, because you ‘have to’ read the things on your TBR, than don’t make them! You read for fun, so you shouldn’t stress about it!
So, no they are not necessary, but yes they are fun!
