Hey guys! So in my last post I mentioned the different ways I choose my monthly TBR. This post will be specifically about my TBR jar. This concept is spoken about a lot of booktube and bookstagram. 

In my TBR jar I only have books that I own and have not read in it. My TBR jar is also colour coded just so I can personally see which book genre I have more off that is unread which is fantasy. I originally only used the TBR jar to actually see how many books I own but still need to read. It opens my mind and pushes me to read more from my shelves. I also look at my jar before I go book buying because it tends to make me buy less or nothing at all. 

So my colour coding system is: 

  • pink – fantasy
  • blue – contemporary
  • orange – classic
  • green – poetry
  • purple – paranormal/scifi
  • Yellow – retelling

At the moment majority of my jar is pink and orange which only a couple of blue, green and purple slips of paper. Sorry this post is pretty short but there isn’t that much to explain about the concept of TBR jars. 

Thanks for reading my post. Remember to like this post and follow my blog to stay up to date on my content. 

Keep Reading, Tara.
