Wheel of TBR #40, February 28th

I saw Codie's Book Corner doing the Wheel of TBR, and I thought that sounded like a great way to pick what to read from your TBR. So thanks to her! I'll only do 3 spins, because I'm doing this every week, and so it won't make up my total TBR of the week, but it'll be a start!

1. On the first week of the month, I'll do 12 spins, for books that I'll have all month to read. For each week for the rest of the month, I'll do 3 spins each week to read each week though I do have the rest of the month to read them. Once a prompt is used, I'll randomly choose one from the list, keeping track of how often a colour comes up. If colour comes up 4 or more times in a month, I'll do another spin once it comes up 4 times.
2. If I don't read a book that week or at least start it, then for my next week of spins, I have to add a punishment for each book unread. I'll roll for each unread book, and have to apply each and every punishment chosen to the week.
3. On the other hand, for reward, if I go 4 weeks in a row making my TBR, then I have one opportunity  to have a grace on a book-if I haven't read it in the week or month I was supposed to, than I don't have to read it (though I'll still try and read it shortly thereafter). The reward can work for only one book. Which would prevent me from getting a punishment, but it takes 4 weeks to get a reward, so I'm fine with that. It evens out for me!

Of the books from the last week, I read The Initial Insult by Mindy McGinnis, Sabriel by Garth Nix, so I have One Perfect Summer by Brenda Novak, Wings of Ebony by J. Elle left.

Of the books from the monthly roll, I read Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay, Lore by Alexandra Bracken, and I started Unchosen by Katharyn Blair, so I have The Chaos of Standing Still by Jessica Brody, The Cabin by Natasha Preston, Dead Girl Running by Christina Dodd, Here So Far Away by Hadley Dyer left.

So I'm going to give myself a little bit of grace with these books. Between the fact that I started my new position with guaranteed hours, February is the shortest month, I got 3 extra books this month, plus there some big life changes coming that are taking my time away from reading. I'm going to give myself 2 more weeks to read these books. If I don't read them by then, then I'll take the punishment.

For the rewards, and I have 0(+1?)/4 needed for the next reward, so I made it to the next reward, so I have 4 rewards saved up.
