Sequel September TBR // a month of tackling unfinished series

Oh boy, here we go again—quite literally (get it? ‘cause it’s a sequel challenge? I’ll stop myself.)

Kathy at Books and Munches is hosting Sequel September, a challenge dedicated to finally reading those unfinished series collecting dust on your shelves. Although I love binge reading series (mainly because I hate cliffhangers), sometimes sequels fall through the cracks and remain in my TBR pile for an indeterminate amount of time. So, what better way to tackle this “ issue “ by joining in on this challenge!

But, first, I have a confession to make.

I’m not proud of it—there’s nothing fun about finding a great reading challenge… and then watching it pass you by. Seeing wrap-ups for challenges I intended to participate in, but didn’t, couldn’t, or even forgot to attempt is quite disheartening. However, since I’m relatively less busy these days  a n d  I’m posting a TBR online for you all to see, I’m hoping that I’ll be more committed to this reading challenge.

This reading challenge will be a little more difficult than others, just because of what it entails. Like I mentioned, sequels on my shelves sit there for a loooong time. One of the reasons they stay there is because so much time has passed that I can’t even remember what happened in the first book 😅. Alas, this challenge will not only be a test of endurance, but also memory.

If you hate me right now, so do I HAHAHA.

Without further ado and dramatics, here’s my TBR for Sequel September:

*Usually I would include the Goodreads description of the books I mention in a post, but I realized I should forgo that this time around to prevent spoilers. Please enjoy my three word blurbs instead!
