October 2014 Monthly Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

November 3, 2014

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started October with 242 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …244! October was a total disaster, reading wise. If it weren’t for the read-a-thon, I’d hardly have read anything. (Plus I didn’t review hardly anything – I think I’m 10 reviews behind, at least.) But the busiest part of my semester is over, as of Friday, so hopefully I can get caught up on my reviews, my stack of library books, my stack of review copies, and my attention span to get some reading done.

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

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

Gregor and the Marks of Secret by Suzanne Collins

Read But Not Owned (Books)
Written in my Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

Read But Not Owned (Graphic Novels)
The Unwritten, Vol. 9: The Unwritten Fables by Mike Carey et al.
Fables, Vol. 20: Camelot by Bill Willingham et al.

The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
Illyria by Elizabeth Hand

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

Non-TBR acquisitions (storage-space-related shame!)
Little Humans by Brandon Stanton Jane Austen: Seven Novels by Jane Austen
Land of the Painted Caves by Jean Auel Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 8, Vol. 5: Predators and Prey by Joss Whedon

    I am so far behind I don’t even want to think about it.

    Well at least it looks like the additions to your TBR are pretty great.
