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

Audiobooks
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)

Re-Reads
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!
