May 2016 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

June 1, 2016

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started May with 203 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …204! May was better than April (or March) in terms of getting some reading done, but not as much as I was hoping – I’ve kind of fallen out of the habit. (Although I’ve done a bunch of re-reading, so that’s something..) Hopefully I’ll pick it back up again as the summer goes on.

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

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

The Spirit Ring by Lois McMaster Bujold
Texts from Jane Eyre: And Other Conversations with Your Favorite Literary Characters by Mallory Ortberg

Read But Not Owned (Books)
Proposal by Meg Cabot

Read But Not Owned (Graphic Novels)
The Wicked & The Divine, Vol. 3: Commercial Suicide by Kieron Gillen

Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel
Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver
The Path of Daggers by Robert Jordan
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
The Atomic Weight of Love by Elizabeth J. Church

Added to my TBR pile (all-around shame!)
Price of Glory by Seth Hunter Summer Days and Summer Nights ed. by Stephanie Perkins
Non-TBR acquisitions (storage-space-related shame!)
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare  
Added to my eTBR pile (non-storage-space-related shame!)
Tales of Arilland by Alethea Kontis Farthing by Jo Walton
* 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.

    At least if reading is quiet that gives you chances to catch up on reviewing, right? Silver lining? Hope you get more time to read this summer. :)
