Creating a TBR based on TV shows

Script Stationers Blog Banner

I’ve been binging on a lot of tv shows lately and sometimes when I consume a lot of a series, it really starts to consume the rest of my life. I always find myself looking for books that are similar to the show I’m enjoying. Today I decided to go with that notion and finally put together a list that I think coincides nicely with the shows.
Now I choose books that were already on my radar/wish list. I also know that in the case of Charmed and Buffy, there are adaptation books and I decided to disregard those simply because it seemed redundant.

September Wrap Up 2019

Monthly Wrap Up

Well, this is a short wrap up.

I didn’t do a lot of reading this month, I started off feeling pretty slumpy, I still blame The Art of Racing in the Rain. Since I tried to push through that, my reading was very slow and I didn’t exactly choose a book that drew me in and excited me to read. It was another AORITR scenario.

This has also been a ridiculously busy month for me, I went with my best friend to pick up her new puppy and I’ve also been letting her puppy stay with me during the workweek days. I completely forgot how much work puppies are and how I basically can’t turn my back on them for longer than 5 seconds. This is kind of why I have cats, less work in my opinion.

But let’s get into my wrap up.

Wrapping Up The Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge

As summer comes to a close and I have to pack away my dresses and pull out the sweaters I figured it would be a good time to wrap up The Goodreads Summer Reading Challenge. I’m very pleased by the amount of books I read and the range in genres that I explored and would definitely recommend the challenge.

Checking in on my 2019 book goals

Goal #1 
Finish the Outlander Series

I did it! I caught up on the main storyline of Outlander! There are still novellas and a collection of short stories but at the moment I don’t feel the need to read them. Nor do I have a desire to get into Lord John Grey’s novels.

Goal #2
Finish half of my unread series:

I haven’t made much of a dent in this goal, honestly its kind of taken the back seat in my priorities.

Goal #3
read 12 classics:

So far I’ve read 3 classics so I have some catching up to do. I’ve read Mansfield Park, Wuthering Heights, and A Journey to the Center of the Earth. I have A Tale of Two Cities next on my TBR for this goal.

Goal #4
Read 6 non-fiction books:

I’ve read two nonfics so far- Hidden Figures and Dear Ijeawele

Goal #5

Read 10 big books:

So far I’ve read 3 big books outside of the Outlander Series, I’ve read Way of Kings, Words of Radiance, and Oathbringer. Next up is Priory of the Orange Tree which I’m very excited about.

2019 favorites (so far)


So many delightful books this year and most of them were books I’ve had for a couple months and it always makes me think “why didn’t I read this sooner?”

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
