Latest YA Additions to My TBR List (Top Ten Tuesday #24)

Latest YA Additions to My TBR List

Since I paired down my TBR list at the beginning of this year, I didn’t have 10 books in a specific genre for today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic. Instead I’m just sharing general YA fiction titles. 10 most recent YA fiction additions to my TBR list   Geekerella by Ashley Poston The Last of August (Charlotte Holmes #2) by Brittany Cavallaro Windfall by Jennifer E.

TBR List: June 2017

TBR List: June 2017

I’m excited about my TBR list for June. I have a good mix of YA and adult fiction as well as one non-fiction selection. I started a couple of the audiobooks in May, but I won’t finish them before June, so I’m still including them on this list. Books I’ll be reading in June 2017 The Last of August (Charlotte Holmes #2) by Brittany Cavallaro How I got it: I borrowed the Playaway audio device from the library. Why I got it: I loved A Study in Charlotte when I read it a couple of months ago. I still need to get my review up, but I’m […]

TBR List: May 2017

I only finished 3 of the 6 planned books from my April TBR list. I’m in the middle of one other, and another is still on my stack for this month. The last one I gave up on and returned to the library without even starting. You know how that goes. I did read a lot of other unplanned books, so it was still a great reading month despite my busy travel schedule last month. This month I have selected a variety of adult, young adult, and non-fiction reading. Books I’ll be reading in May 2017   The Yellow Envelope: One Gift, Three Rules, and a Life-Changing […]

TBR List: April 2017

TBR List: April 2017

I picked up a HUGE stack of books from the library last week, so I’m once again feeling a little overwhelmed by my TBR list. However, I did get through almost all of my books from March, so I’m at least caught up on what I’d planned to read. Books I’ll be reading in April 2017 A Study in Charlotte (Charlotte Holmes #1) by Brittany Cavallaro How I got it: I borrowed the Playaway Audio version from the library. (This is my first experience with these pre-loaded devices.) Why I got it: I’ve heard so many great things, and now that the second book is out too, I […]

10 Books on my Spring TBR (Top Ten Tuesday #20)

Spring TBR List 2017

Since I already do a monthly TBR list post, I thought I’d use today’s Top Ten Tuesday to share the review copies I’ve received that I really need to read this spring. I am still so behind on my NetGalley queue (and other review copies I’ve received by email), and I don’t always list those books on my monthly TBR posts. Review copies I need to read this spring One of the Boys by Daniel Magariel Ashes by Steven Manchester Setting Free the Kites by Alex George Sisters One, Two, Three by Nancy Star Thanks a Lot, John Leclair by Johanna Parkhurst Of Stillness and Storm by Michèle Phoenix To Capture […]

TBR List: March 2017

TBR List: March 2017

I am feeling rather caught up on books right now. I only have 2 books sitting on my nightstand, so of course I need to go to the library to pick up my next batch. My TBR list this month includes a good amount of YA fiction, which is odd given my recent post on shifting preferences. It’s mostly because of old NetGalley requests I made and my prioritization of books I wanted to read for 2016 that I didn’t get to. I’m hoping to find some other great reads. I only have one 5-star read so far this year. I need more! Books I’ll be […]

Purging My TBR List

Purging My TBR List

At the beginning of 2017 my Goodreads “To Read” list had over 600 books on it. That’s a lot of book! It was starting to get a little overwhelming. So much so that I had stopped reading reviews towards the end of 2016 because I didn’t want to feel compelled to add anything to my TBR list. In late January, I went through my TBR list book by book and removed anything I didn’t recognize by title, cover image, or author. I ended up getting it down to only 116 books. I read 163 books in 2016, so that number seems completely doable. Ha! Not […]

TBR List: February 2017

TBR List: February 2017

I’ve been struggling with reading (and blogging) lately for two reasons: I’m newly obsessed with Downton Abbey. I’ve been re-watching all of the episodes and that’s sucking up my reading time. I’m having a hard time reading fiction right now. The political climate in the country right now is distracting me. I’m trying to resist where I can, and reading isn’t feeling like a good escape. It’s sometimes feeling like a wasted effort. Nevertheless, I do have a stack of books that I will be attempting to read (or just finish – because I have started some of these books already) this month. 10 books I plan to […]

TBR Pile: January 2017

TBR Pile: January 2017

I did a decent job last month of catching up on my TBR list. This month I am planning only a handful of books, so I can attempt to read some of the books from my shelves. You know I don’t like to hold on to physical books, so I’m hoping to do some cleaning and then do another Little Free Library marketing run at the end of the month. Here are 5 books I’m planning to read this month. The Year We Turned Forty by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke How I got it: I borrowed it from the library. Why I got it: It’s […]

TBR Pile: December 2016

December is going to be a catch up month for me. I am only adding 2 new books to my TBR pile, and then my goal is to read only books from my back list. My nightstand looks like this: These are books I had planned to read in October or November, but I just ran out of time or other books got in the way. Then I don’t know what happened, but a few months ago I went crazy on NetGalley and requested a TON of books. I think it was around the time where I stopped getting denied for many books, so while […]
