Mt TBR Report: March 2018

I’m very pleased with my reading for March. Once again, I came within one book of breaking even on my acquisitions. I would have made it with plenty to spare, had I not caved in to the feminist SFF book bundle being curated by Cat Rambo. I’m especially pleased because I also had a bit […]

Mt TBR Report: February 2018

February was predominantly a month of romance and YA for me. My reading habits have grown in those directions, anyway, but I was also a bit burnt out and I find those genres comforting. Fortunately for me, I was able to take a short holiday and spent a fair amount of it reading. So, it […]

Mt TBR report: January 2018

2018 got off to a slow start for me, reading-wise. We were a week into the year before I managed to finish my first book. I put some of it down to the fact I ended up reading some longer books this month, averaging 338 pages per book instead of the 240 of last year. […]

Mt TBR Report: November 2017

November found me a long way off my reading game. I had some time-consuming personal commitments which chewed into my reading time. And I DNFed two books this month. Combined, it makes for the worst reading month I’ve had all year. Of course, acquisitions haven’t slowed down at all. I managed to pick up some […]

Mt TBR Report: October 2017

With two months left to go, I think I can give up on any vague hope I had of breaking even on Mt TBR this year. Though, to be fair, October is both birthday month and Conflux, so I didn’t really stand a chance. Fortunately, my other reading goals are looking good. The first was […]
