October 2016 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

November 1, 2016

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started October with 202 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …211! Well, October was a wash. I didn’t read much, didn’t listen to much, and was just busy and crazy and crazy busy all month. (Did get to the library booksale, though, obviously!) But it’s over now, and I spent last night laying on my couch reading, and it was delightful. Hopefully I’ll get to more of that, and maybe a few of my (WAY) overdue reviews during November!

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

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

As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes (review coming soon)

Read But Not Owned (Graphic Novels)
Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier
Little Fish: A Memoir from a Different Kind of Year by Ramsey Beyer (reviews coming soon)

Voyager by Diana Gabaldon

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
The Bookman’s Tale by Charles C. Lovett (review coming soon)

Non-TBR acquisitions (storage-space-related shame!)
The Sandman, Vol. 1: Preludes & Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
BtVS, Season 8, Vol. 3: Wolves at the Gate by Drew Goddard Anya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol
Fables, Vol. 13: The Great Fables Crossover by Bill Willingham Sisters by Raina Telgemeier
Added to my TBR pile (all-around shame!)
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan The Fifth Petal by Brunonia Barry (not pictured)
Your Inner Fish: A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body by Neil Shubin The Just City by Jo Walton
The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin The Witch’s Daughter by Paula Brackston
Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield The Comet Seekers by Helen Sedgwick
The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror: Ninth Annual Collection edited by Ellen Datlow & Terri Windling The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror: Tenth Annual Collection edited by Ellen Datlow & Terri Windling
Added to my eTBR pile (non-storage-space-related shame!)
Prince Lestat by Anne Rice * 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.

    There is such a lot of overlap between our shelves and stacks. And I’m really looking forward to your thoughts on As You Wish!
