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 […]

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 @ […]

Mt TBR Report: May 2018

My reading for May was slightly less intensely focused on the Hugo Awards. Things have been very busy in the lead up to Continuum and I found I had to break things up with some lighter fare. Judging from my book count for the month, it looks like last month’s binge is easing off… however, […]

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. […]
