I have seen TBR Jars all over TikTok lately and I decided that I need one because I have so many books on my Physical TBR that I need to read! I have also decided to try and go on a book buying ban for the month of July to not only save money but to get through some of my books I already have on my shelf.

How It Works

TBR Jars are all pretty much the same, you put the names of all your books on your TBR onto a piece of paper, cut them up and drop them into a jar. Every time you need a new book to read you pull a random title out of the jar. Pretty simple but this is also my nightmare! I am a major mood reader so I am making some new rules just for me to follow.

  • Each Pull I get a second chance to pull a different book and I read the one I would rather read more than the other at that time.
  • I must read at least 50 pages of the book before I can decide whether I would like to DNF the book or just put it back in the jar for another day.
  • I need to read at least five books before I can buy another book to add to my shelf.

Final Product


I am very excited to see what my first book is from my jar. I am also very interested in seeing if I can actually stick with this and save some money for the month of July and maybe even longer! Because of this I don’t have a hopefuls list for July but I do know I have two buddy reads so you should be seeing reviews for “Truly Devious” and “Daisy Jones and the Six”.
