What do I need to do to join #5OnMyTBR?

Again, simple! On Monday have a post with 5 books on your TBR. Also:

  1. This looks like fun to join! (and may get me to actually topple some of my tbr). I have a good couple hundred on my tbr (and that’s owned, not ones that I want to read which I don’t have :|)

      1. Ohh I just do it on purpose… I keep adding and deleting books to the tbr all the time, just so I don’t panic seeing a huge number 😂😂😂 but I’m sure your series is going to definitely up the numbers … can’t wait to participate…

          1. Ohh wow… I remember the vampire phase and I’m glad I cleaned them up a long while ago. But I read so many of them in those days that my GR recommendations list is still full of them even now 😂😂

          2. I was mostly making fun from staying with the same genres and only switching to The Gays but Blood Countess by Lana Popović just came out and I’ve been meaning Bump by Jaime Munn and Revelry is a Decadence by Sydney Gibson for AGES!
            I haven’t read any super exciting yet besides Carry On by Rainbow Rowell (but that’s more of a comfort read) and the classical Carmilla. :c

          3. Carry On is the only one among these I’ve read, so I’m gonna look up the other ones 😍😍 And I completely understand about searching for more inclusive books in the same favorite genres. That’s what I’m trying as well ..

          4. On the bright note — it got me about a year or two to transition from 90% straight to nearly no straight so just give yourself some time 🙂 I so rarely pick up books that aren’t diverse in any way that it feels so weird to read them!

          5. Wow that’s cool… 2019 was the first time I started tracking my stats and I had about 20% of my books which had no diversity or representation… and 40% which were ownvoices… so one of my goals for 2020 is trying to increase my OV reads and decrease the non diverse books.. but I’m definitely enjoying the whole new world of reading this has opened up for me…

          6. I don’t have such detailed stats but so far this year I think the only non-diverse reads I had were non-fiction and some BDSM porn short stories? 😀 I would like to branch out and read rep that’s not only LGBTQ+ and mental health as that’s what I’ve been focusing on. That’s a work in progress though
            20% books with no diversity only is a good stat!!

          7. I kept seeing everyone sharing lovely colorful graphs on blogs and decided to use a spreadsheet too and it’s been fun looking at the stats.
            I think I mostly read a combo of LGBTQ+ books and books by Asian authors… not much on the mental health rep side yet because anything with depression, anxiety etc is kinda triggering for me but hopefully I’ll be able to handle them someday too 😊😊
            I’ll probably cut down no diversity to less than 20% but zero might be a still tough. Still have a few old favorite authors whom I can’t let go of, who hardly bother with diversity 😬😬

          8. I use some tracker made by another blogger and have some graphs but she didn’t include graphs for the rep. I tried making one today but I only track LGBTQ+ rep with detail and don’t put any info if there’s no rep or I read non-fiction books. Yeah, I research my mental health rep before diving into it so I know there’s nothing that will trigger me beforehand for the same reason. And make sure I read it only in a proper mood. My first rule is no suicides and only happy/hopeful endings.
            I’m not trying to hit zero as well. I still want to read Pratchett or even some classics! But, I guess, I’m not really involved with any get new releases and stuff? Anyway, the key is to know your priorities lol 😀

          9. Ya… I’m using two trackers by other bloggers too… my excel skills aren’t that great 😂😂😂
            My diversity tracking isn’t that great either.. I mostly just check for own voices, non OV, a combination and none.
            OMG you are just like me… I need to know all about the triggers and any other content before I jump into a book. Suicides are a complete no no and I want a happy ending too.

            I’m not much into classics but read a lot of new releases.. so that’s why I have a set of authors I can’t leave whom I’ve been reading for a decade and are still writing.. but all new discoveries, I generally prefer some combination of representation. And I’m glad we have so much more options now 😊😊

          10. Yep, sometimes I feel like it keeps me from reading about important subjects but my mental health is more important for me. I feel like I can read about suicide as long as the act itself isn’t shown and it’s treated respectfully? But only when I’m good good. Like, sure give me something to relate to but here are some guidelines?

            I don’t really stick to authors that much so maybe that’s why it was easier for me to move on! I do stick to some series though and I’m (or was) an English major so classics is something I try to pepper in here and there lol.

          11. I understand what you mean. It definitely keeps me from reading books with good mental health rep too but I need to take care of my head first. Reading is pure escapism for me and I don’t want books to be another cause of anxiety in my life. But yes, going in prepared definitely helps me if I do pick up a book with such themes.

            I just have a bunch of authors who’s complete backlists I’ve read, and it’s pure nostalgia that I don’t wanna let go. It’s more about the memories associated with their characters I guess 😊😊😊

          12. Yes, our health is the first priority. Books should be a help, not an obstacle. I read mostly for escapism as well and while it’s nice to see someone struggle with what I struggle sometimes — I need to be ready and prepared for that.

            I get that! I guess I just somehow managed to move on more easily from that. It may be because I always just kept reaching for the next and next book or maybe I just treat my old tastes as closed chapters. I don’t know. Anyway I only give my attention to a few books from my past and the amount of new for me straights is even fewer lol

  2. I got up this morning all ready for the first post and realized that it is only Saturday. This lockdown has me all mixed up on my days! But, on the flip side, this will be a perfectly timed meme to keep me digging through my TBR. Thanks for organizing this!

    1. Haha! No worries, it’s still a day to prepare 🙂 My routine is in shambles as well and I was already a homebody so I can’t even imagine how hard it must be for other people…
      Thank you! Yes, it’s neat to have some time to look through all those books! And, of course, no problem 🙂 Hope you’ll enjoy!
