February 2017 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

March 11, 2017

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started February with 213 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …212! I feel kind of ridiculous continuing to put "review coming soon" on my listings, since I know that "soon" probably means at least another three months, at the outside. This semester is busier than anticipated (aren’t they always?), but I am plugging along, and managing to get at least some reading done, mostly in the form of audiobooks while I walk my dog. And I’m being *very* good about not acquiring books (the guilt of my untouched TBR bookcases is finally starting to get to me, I think), so at least that number is staying under control, even if it’s not going down particularly quickly, either.

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

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

Crows & Cards by Joseph Helgerson
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Lieutenant Hornblower by C. S. Forester (reviews coming soon)

Read But Not Owned (Graphic Novels)
Sing No Evil by J. P. Ahonen (review coming soon)

Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
Crosstalk by Connie Willis (review coming soon)

Added to my eTBR pile (non-storage-space-related shame!)
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard
Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis 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.

    I”m looking forward to your thoughts on the Connie Willis. There were things I really liked about it, but more than anything it made me want to go back to her earlier stuff!
