TBR Pile: October 2016

Shelf Full of Books | Kaboompics

I have a HUGE pile of ARCS, so this month’s list is quite heavy on new releases. It seems like every book I picked up at BEA releases in September or October, so I’m a bit behind.

I finished 13 books in September. 5 were books I planned to read in September. I’m in the middle of Leave Me, and I DNFed Into White. Maybe I’ll return to it at some time, but it wasn’t working for me. I also re-listened to 3 books (Harry Potter #7, The Martian, and Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour). And then I read 5 unplanned books, 3 of which were middle grade books I reviewed on Mom’s Radius.

For October, I’m planning to read these 11 books.
The Surrendered by Case Maynard

How I got it: I have an eARC from Blaze Publishing.

Why I got it: It’s been a while since I read a dystopian book, and this one sounds so interesting. Children are taxed in this future society.

 

Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

How I got it: I have an ARC from BEA.

Why I got it: I heard Gary speak about this book at BEA, and it sounds SO interesting. Non-fiction can be challenging, but I’m really looking forward to reading this book.

 

The Movie Version by Emma WunschThe Movie Version by Emma Wusch

How I got it: I have an eARC from NetGalley.

Why I got it: I needed some more ebooks to read on my phone, and this cover and description caught my eye. I like when fictional characters compare their lives to another fictional medium, i.e. movies.

 

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult

How I got it: I have an ARC from BEA.

Why I got it: Jodi Picoult was my first favorite author, and she’s on my list of most read authors. All of her books are auto-reads, so I was excited to see Jodi again and get my ARC signed at BEA.

 

The Other Me by Saskia Sarginson

How I got it: I bought the ebook from iTunes with a gift card.

Why I got it: It’s my Moms Book Club selection for this month.

 

 

The Mothers by Brit Bennett

The Mothers by Brit Bennett

How I got it: I have an ARC from BEA.

Why I got it: I saw Brit speak about this book at BEA, and I was so intrigued by the racial aspects of it. I would never have picked this book up otherwise, so I really glad I heard about it in her own words.

 

Fill the Sky by Katherine A. Sherbrooke

Fill the Sky by Katherine A. Sherbrooke

How I got it: I have an eARC from NetGalley.

Why I got it: Since reading Wanderlove last year, I have been a little obsessed with Central America. When I read this description, I knew I had to read it.

 

We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson

How I got it: I borrowed it from the library, but I may end up listening on Sarah’s Audible account.

The Things We Wish Were True by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen

The Things We Wish Were True by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen

Why I got it: It’s the She Reads fall selection, so as part of the She Reads Blog Network, I have to read and review it. Plus, it sounds really good!

 

The Secret Diary of Lydia Bennett by Natasha Farrant

How I got it: I have an ARC from BEA.

Why I got it: I love all things Jane Austen, so when I saw this book, I couldn’t resist, even though by that point I already had an insane amount of ARCs.

  1. I listened to the Martian for the second time in August and it was just as good the second time round.

    It’s Canadian Thanksgiving next weekend (a holiday we totally ripped off from America just as a excuse for a day off, to sit on the couch and watch our three down football and of course, to stuff ourselves silly) and I booked a couple of vacation days so alas, I am going to read and nap for FIVE WHOLE DAYS. I am hoping to finish the book I got about the Dutch era in NYC (I am a terrible Canadian).

    1. Me too! I have it packed in my suitcase to travel with me this weekend. I’ll be starting The Mothers as soon as I finish Leave Me. I decided to review Small Great Things later in the month, so I won’t be getting to that one quite yet. Although I really, really want to read it now! 🙂

    1. I know! I need to finish another ebook, and then I’ll be reading The Surrendered. I hope it can hold my attention. I have struggled lately with dystopian. I want to read more fantasy, but I have a hard time with that genre unless I listen on audio.
