Book Haul/TBR Revisit #5 + Try a Chapter Tag

Book Haul Revisit _3

Today I have my July & August 2016 Book Haul/TBR Revisit. I will also be wrapping up my March, April & May 2016 Revisit. I won’t be unhauling any books that I haven’t read (unless I know I won’t get around to it, or I’m not interested in it anymore) but it will still be interesting to see how I’ve done! Let’s just get into this! So, I only ended up reading 1/37 of the books I planned to read and that was:

Harry Potter

But I’m currently reading or started reading some of the other books last month. So, these are the books that I’m going to make top priority books this month to read, and try to finish off these ones:

I’ve also always wanted to do the Try a Chapter Tag and seeing as I’ve got so many books to read this month, I thought I would do it here to try to cut down some of these books. The tag is perfect for helping to decide what to read next. So, usually you Choose 5+ books you’ve been meaning to read. Read up to the first chapter, prologue included. Decide if you’ll complete it or set it aside. Except instead of just choosing one book, I’m going to read the first chapter of each of these books and decide which ones I’m most interested in reading and try to read those within this month! So, below I’ll be listing the books that I’m most interested in reading based on the first chapter!


Chat With Me

So that’s 41 books, but I will try to read at least 15 books this month. That’s a lot of books, so I don’t know how many I’ll actually be able to get through, but I’ll try to get through as many as I can and I’ll try to do better this month than I did last month.

I’ll be doing this each month, I’ll keep a monthly tally. And I’ll summarize each previous month. So that each month we can figure out how I did after last month’s revisit and keep track of how many books I have to read

I’m looking forward to reading all of these books! Have you read any of these books and if so, which was your favourite? Thoughts? Any of these on your TBR? Which ones do you recommend I read first? Let me know in the comments.

Let me know what you all thought of each of these books if you read them or if you want to read them!
