January 2016 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

February 1, 2016

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started January with 195 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …195! Not my best month ever, but given that it’s the beginning of the semester, and compared to the past few Januaries, I think I did pretty well! AND I finally started working through my backlog of reviews. I’m nowhere near caught up, but it feels good to be reviewing again after basically totally abandoning it last semester. My goal for February is to read a few more of my own books, and hit the pile of graphic novels that I've had checked out of the library and completely forgot about during January.

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

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

The Android’s Dream by John Scalzi
Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell

Read But Not Owned (Books)
Winter by Marissa Meyer
Manners & Mutiny by Gail Carriger

The Cuckoo’s Calling* by Robert Galbraith

The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
Slade House by David Mitchell

Added to my TBR pile (all-around shame!)
Worlds Elsewhere: Journeys Around Shakespeare’s Globe by Andrew Dickson  
Added to my eTBR pile (non-storage-space-related shame!)
A Monstrous Regiment of Women by Laurie R. King Cruel Crown by Victoria Aveyard
* Pursuant to the discussion on this post, I’ve decided to create an eTBR pile for e-books and audiobooks that I accept for review or 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.
