Mt TBR Report: October 2018

October was my birthday month and one of my gifts was a Kobo e-reader (to help me break free of Amazon’s evil clutches). So, I might have got a little excited with purchases. I also borrowed a pile of books on journaling from a friend. Even my voracious reading this month wasn’t enough to help […]

RIP XIII

  Happy Halloween! I admit I don’t really celebrate, but it is a wonderful excuse to wear some awesome manicures. Of course, the arrival of Halloween means that the 13th Readers Imbibing Peril reading challenge is coming to a close. In case you have forgotten, this is basically an excuse to read as much as […]

Mt TBR Report: September 2018

September went a long way towards getting my Mt TBR back under control. I knocked out some shorter bits and pieces in the first half of the month. I was ill for much of the second half and reading proved to be a good distraction. Mt TBR Status Mt TBR @ 1 January 2018: 351 […]

Mt TBR Report: August 2018

  My Mt TBR cracked 400 books this month; I may have a problem. I can’t even blame it on the Aurealis judging this time. Instead, I found myself picking up a lot of romance novels… even though it’s going to take me a while to get to them. Mt TBR Status Mt TBR @ […]

Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan

This week I’m over at the Skiffy and Fanty Show with a review of Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan. This sci-fi YA is a fun, action-packed adventure, but one which could have dug a bit deeper. (Hard to go past that cover, though!)

Mt TBR Report: June 2018

June was a surprisingly good month for my Mt TBR, despite the fact I attended Continuum. A judicious cull and a last-minute binge read meant I actually managed to shrink the pile a little. However, there’s still a way to go if I hope to break even this year. Mt TBR Status Mt TBR @ […]
