April 2013 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

May 2, 2013

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started April with 241 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …247! Bad Nicki, very bad. But in my defense, the local friends of the library booksale only happens twice a year, so I’m not going to have a chance to do this much damage again until October. And May is almost always a good month for me reading out of my own TBR, so here’s hoping.

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

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

Audiobooks
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

Read But Not Owned (Books)
Shades of Earth by Beth Revis
The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson

Read But Not Owned (Graphic Novels)
Amulet, Vol. 3: The Cloud Searchers and Vol. 4: The Last Council by Kazu Kibuishi
Level Up by Gene Luen Yang
Friends With Boys by Faith Erin Hickman
Stuck Rubber Baby by Howard Cruse
Fables, Vol. 18: Cubs in Toyland by Bill Willingham



Re-Reads
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
The Vor Game by Lois McMaster Bujold

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
A Murder for Her Majesty by Beth Hilgardner
The Thief of Always by Clive Barker

 
 
Non-TBR acquisitions (storage-space-related shame!)
Memory by Lois McMaster Bujold The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud
 
Added to my TBR pile (all-around shame!)
Fevre Dream by George R. R. Martin Waiter Rant: Thanks for the Tip – Confessions of a Cynical Waiter by Steve Dublanica

Added to my eTBR pile (non-storage-space-related shame!)
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver * Pursuant to the discussion on this post, I’ve decided to create an eTBR pile for e-books for which I actually pay money. I’m not adding them into my total TBR numbers, but I have to fess up about them somewhere. Keeps me honest.
