February 2013 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

March 1, 2013

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started February with 238 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …237! I did a little better about getting some reading done this month, although because a lot of it was re-reads, and also because I discovered the graphic novel section of my new local library, I didn’t do as much damage to the TBR pile as I could have. But a negative one is not too shabby, I think!

…anyways, let’s take a look at the breakdown:

Neutral books – Read, but don’t affect the TBR pile

The Time Paradox by Eoin Colfer
Swordspoint by Ellen Kushner

Read But Not Owned (Books)
Blood Prophecy by Alyxandra Harvey

Read But Not Owned (Graphic Novels)
Calamity Jack by Shannon and Dean Hale
Smoke and Mirrors by Mike Costa
Fables: Werewolves of the Heartland by Bill Willingham
Serenity: The Shepherd’s Tale by Zach Whedon
Amulet: The Stonekeeper and The Stonekeeper’s Curse by Kazu Kibuishi
Around the World by Matt Phelan

The Warrior’s Apprentice by Lois McMaster Bujold
Towers of Midnight by Robert Jordan
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
Salt: A World History by Mark Kurlansky
Service Included: Four Star Secrets of an Eavesdropping Waiter by Phoebe Damrosch

Added to my TBR pile (all-around shame!)

    You had a great month! What did you think of the Amulet series? I hope March goes just as well.

      Vasilly – I thought the Amulet books were very pretty, although I’m not totally in love with the storyline. But I’ll read the rest of them, for sure.

    Isn’t it funny how you can be vaguely interested in reading a book (for instance, The Night Circus, which I just, finally, bought, having given up on the library copies which still have queues for the paperback) and then you see that someone else has already had time to REread it, and suddenly you feel that you must at least do it the justice of a single-reading before even one more day passes?! Gee, thanks. *grin* Too many books. (Great month of reading for you!)

      BiP – Don’t feel too bad; I probably wouldn’t have re-read it if not for my book club. But definitely worth reading for the first time!

        Heheh. Thanks. I do feel a smidge better, knowing that you made time to re-read for a bookclub (which I’ve done myself, often with books that I might not actually have chosen to re-read, although nearly always feeling good about a second read nonetheless). I did skim your thoughts on the re-read (er, re-listen), but being my usual spoiler-phobic self have likely missed the most brilliant bits.
