May 2017 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

June 4, 2017

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started May with 214 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …213! May was pretty good – maybe not quite as much paper-book reading as I was hoping, but not too bad! It was also apparently the month of "read this book so you can watch the recent TV adaptation" – American Gods, Haindmaid’s Tale, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks… guess what I’m doing with my June? :) And I finally started chipping away at my year’s worth of backlogged reviews. Whoops.

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

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

Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War by Mary Roach
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi (reviews coming soon)

American Gods by Neil Gaiman (review coming soon)

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (huzzah!)
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield (reviews coming soon)
Yvain: The Knight of the Lion by M. T. Anderson

Added and then read (um… huzzah?)
A Fine Imitation by Amber Brock

Added to my TBR pile (all-around shame!)
The Wind’s Twelve Quarters by Ursula K. LeGuin Murder as a Fine Art by David Morrell
Non-TBR acquisitions (storage-space-related shame!)
Proposal by Meg Cabot

    Any reduction in the ol’ TBR is a good thing.

    My TBR doesn’t move at all, so yay, for you!
