It’s 2018, and I’m finally in the mindset to set up my Too Much TBR.

For those who do not know, Too Much TBR is a way to help me see which books I really need to read and tackle them. Is it effective? Perhaps. It helps a lot seeing a visual of the books on my TBR pile.

Let’s discuss what I read last month, and what I’m reading this month!

After four years of setting goals for the new year, I’m coming to the conclusion—at least, I’ve always known—that setting them won’t work for me?

Music in 2017 was filled with my favorite bands and ALOT of Kpop. Go figure?

Like 2016, I didn’t listen as much albums. I listened to a lot of one-shots—a song from different albums. Lots of good music from my favorites, who I’ve seen in concert before and want to again, and Korean pop music that make me want to dance.

Here are the albums I listened to. (It is in order of when I listened to them, and the links go to Spotify.)

THE XX | I See You

The xx are an English indie pop band formed in 2005 in Wandsworth, London. I See You is their third album.

I…love this album. Like a lot. It’s certainly one of my all-time favorites (right up there with Arctic Monkey’s AM) that I can play over and again. I See You is a bit of departure in sound from their previous two albums, but it’s still distinctively The xx with Romy Croft and Oliver Sim’s gorgeous dual singing. It’s an emotional album that speaks about the relationship between the members, and you can feel the affection. It’s simply lovely.

You ever want to know what people are buying in bookstores? Well, it so happens that I work at one, and I wanted to write about what books customers have been asking for during the holiday season. All bookstores are different, so the customers coming in ask for different things. These are just the books the customers in my area asked for. This list isn’t a conclusive list; the books here are the ones that I’ve remembered because I’ve been asked about it a bazillion times or I’ve seen customers holding it.

I wished I was successful at reading in October like September, but unfortunately, I wasn’t having that. I haven’t been in a “read from your priority TBR list” mood all month, which sucks. All I wanted to read were non-priority, which was a lot of nonfiction books. At least I was still reading.

For those who do not know, Too Much TBR is a way to help me see which books I really need to read and tackle them. It helps a lot seeing a visual of the books on my TBR pile.
