However, I am excited to continue on with this challenge and complete this months buzzword which is:

This month the buzzword theme is name/title and just like last month I have a couple of options:

Opening Lines

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is a freebie so I decided to go with a prompt from around this time last year which was opening lines. Just like last year I decided to go with the first line from 10 books on my physical TBR! These are all very high on my reading list and seeing some of these opening lines definitely makes me excited to get into a few of them!!

Series I Need to Complete

These are all the series I am currently in the middle of that are all complete (meaning all the books in the series have been published). Most of these I have either only read the first book in the series or I just have to read the last book. Completing most of these series is kind of a goal of mine for 2021 as well so it will be nice to look back at the end of the year and see how I fare!

The Lightbringer Series by Brent Weeks (4 books)

January TBR

This month is going to be pretty crazy so I am not going to put too much pressure on myself to complete this TBR. What I will endeavour to do is complete some of the series continuations I have going at the moment. Some of these books I have been anticipating for the longest time and I still haven’t read them yet so they are going to the top of my reading list for 2021!

My January TBR consists of:
