July 2014 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

August 1, 2014

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started July with 239 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …240! Not bad at all! I got some decent reading done on my vacation, which is not always the case, and although I did buy myself some fatty-fat fantasy books, I managed to be really good about only reading books (or e-books) that I already owned! August is going to be kind of crazy for me, I predict – it’s just hit me in the past few days how much work I have to get done between now and the beginning of the semester – but I’m going to try to continue to be good about my reading… and maybe get some reviews done ahead of time, for once!

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

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

Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey
Redshirts by John Scalzi

The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett*
Cinder by Marissa Meyer*

The Giver by Lois Lowry
Searching for Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
Among Others by Jo Walton
The Fall of the Kings by Ellen Kushner & Delia Sherman
Invisible Beasts by Sharona Muir


Added and then read (um… huzzah?)
The Boleyn Reckoning by Laura Andersen

Added to my TBR pile (all-around shame!)
The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch The Desert Spear by Peter V. Brett
The Snowman by Jo Nesbø The Daylight War by Peter V. Brett
Added to my eTBR pile (non-storage-space-related shame!)
A History of the World in 6 Glasses by Tom Standage Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
* 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.
