TBR List: November 2017

TBR Pile: November 2017

I skipped my TBR posts the last two months, but they are back! I tried to stack my list today with books I’m really interested in reading. I should really just title this month by favorite author list. So many great writers have new books out, and I am going to try to read them all. Haha. I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump, so I’m hoping to find a couple of great books that really get my fired up about reading again…beyond audiobooks. I have been loving audio lately, but I miss my reading time. Stress can make it hard for me […]

TBR List: August 2017

TBR List: August 2017

This month I am trying “ARC August.” Is that still a thing? Well, if not, I’m making it one. Aside from my one book club book (More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera – Sarah’s pick), which I will be listening to on audio, I am going to be reading only ARCs this month. We’ll see how it goes. ARCs I’ll be reading in August 2017 Reading People: How Seeing the World Through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything by Anne Bogel How I got it: I have an eARC from the publisher because I’m part of the book launch team. Why I got it: […]

TBR List: July 2017

TBR List: July 2017

I have a fun mix of books selected for July 2017. I actually read (or am reading in the case of the last book) all of the books from my June TBR List, so that’s pretty exciting. It doesn’t always happen that way, and I managed to read a bunch of unexpected books, which is even better. Books I’ll be reading in July 2017 When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon How I got it: I borrowed it from the library. Why I got it: I keep hearing about this book. It was one of my suggestions for book club for July, but we settled […]

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 […]
