June 2015 Monthly Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

July 1, 2015

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started June with 254 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …255! Not too shabby, self! I maybe didn’t get to read quite as much as I would have wanted (darn pesky summer classes!), but I didn’t do too badly, and I enjoyed what I did read, so overall I think it counts as a good month!

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

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

Audiobooks
The Human Division by John Scalzi
Read But Not Owned (Books)
Prudence by Gail Carriger
As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust by Alan Bradley
Read But Not Owned (Graphic Novels)
Boxers by Gene Luen Yang
Saints by Gene Luen Yang
Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong by Prudence Shen & Faith Erin Hicks
Re-Reads
The Fires of Heaven by Robert Jordan
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
The Martian by Andy Weir
Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
Added and then read (um… huzzah?)
Rat Queens, Vol. 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N’rygoth by Kurtis J. Wiebe
Added to my TBR pile (all-around shame!)
Juniper, Gentian, and Rosemary by Pamela Dean The Book of Madness and Cures by Regina O’Melveny
The Tutor by Andrea Chapin
Non-TBR acquisitions (storage-space-related shame!)
Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon The McCall’s Book of Afghans
Added to my eTBR pile (non-storage-space-related shame!)
The Winds of Marble Arch and Other Stories by Connie Willis The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens * Pursuant to the discussion on this post, I’ve decided to create an eTBR pile for e-books and audiobooks 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.
