TBR Tuesday – 6 Oct 2015

TBR Tuesday While I’ve been horrible about actually posting reviews for my TBR Tuesday books, I have slowly but surely been chugging away at them. Many people know that I moderate a few groups on Goodreads and in one of them, the other mods and I came up with the idea of a challenge called Pillaging the Pile – where we would each set a goal for a three month period and see how many books from our TBR we could read in that time. There were two options that people could choose, books that had been on their shelves for more than 6 months, or those that had been there for more than 12 months. I had typically been picking the more than 12 month option, just because I have so many.

Anyways, the most recent iteration of the PtP challenge ended on September 30th, and I thought I would post a quick list of the books that I read during the preceding three month period and my initial thoughts on a few of the books, although you may see a few of them pop up as full reviews later on down the road.

1) Behind Closed Doors – Shannon McKenna – Bought Dec 2009Finished – 7/3/15
2) Crux – Moira Rodgers – Bought Oct 2010Finished 7/3/15
3) Remember When – Nora Roberts/JD Robb – Bought Apr 2012Finished 7/5/15
4) Silver Lining – Maggie Osbourne – Bought Sep 2009Finished 7/13/15
5) Haunted in Death – JD Robb – Bought May 20127/19/15
6) Three to Ride – Sophie Oak – bought Jan 2011Finished 7/18/15
7) Mouth To Mouth – Erin McCarthy – bought July 2009Finished 7/31/15
8) The Wallflower – Dana Marie Bell – Bought December 2009Finished 8/18/15
9) Hands on Research – Pam Champagne – bought February 2010Finished 8/28/15
10) Holiday Bound – Beth Kery – bought November 2010Finished 8/29/15
11) Kiss Me Again – Dee Tenorio – bought June 20098/30/15
12) Nice and Naughty – Jayne Rylon – Bought December 2009Finished 9/1/15 (i think this was a reread)
13) The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho – Bought August 2011Finished 9/3/15
14) Dark Harvest – Anitra Lynn McLeod – bought December 2011Finished 9/7/15
15) Deep in the Woods – Annabel Joseph – Bought November 2010Finished 9/7/15
16) Felicity Stripped Bare – Vanessa Jaye – bought August 2009Finished 9/11/15
17) Kink – Saskia Walker/Sasha White – bought April 2010Finished 9/13/15
18) Homecoming – Lacey Baker – bought October 2013Finished 9/16/15
19) Sacred Revelations – Roxy Harte – bought April 2010Finished 9/28/15

so I managed to cull my TBR pile down 19 books in that time period (of course, I probably added equally as many new books…lol). Hopefully, this next three month period will be as productive – I started with a goal of 10 books (which has been my base for the previous sessions, and i typically up it if needed).

Seriously Saturday Series Catch-Up

Page1

If you’re anything like me, you probably have first-book-series syndrome. Where you read the first book (or first couple) of a series, really like it then forget about it completely because there are so many new and shiny books out there (otherwise known as bight-shiny-new or BSN disease).

That’s why Cassi from Galavanting Girl and I teamed up to do a series challenge, the Seriously Saturday Series Catch-Up. And you are more than welcome to join us! Just pick which series you want to catch up on, make a goal and post how you’re doing once a month.

Create a list of series you want to complete during 2014. Share it on your blog, then join us the first Saturday of the month as we share about our successes (or failures) in this series finishing adventure.

My series (and this was much harder than I thought, I have at least 20 in progress):
1. Rizzoli and Isles – Tess Gerritsen (Book 10)
2. Temperance Brennan – Kathy Reichs (Books 13, 14, 15, 16)
3. Outlander – Diana Gabaldon (Book 8 – to be released in June)
4. Kari Vaara – James Thompson (Books 3 and 4)
5. Unwind – Neal Schusterman (Book 3 and 4 – book 4 due out in October)
6. Night Huntress – Jeanine Frost (Books 5, 6 and 7)
7. Chicagoland Vampires – Chloe Neill (Book 9)
8. Whiskey Creek – Brenda Novak (Book 6)
9. Lunar Chronicles – Melissa Marr (Book 3)
10. The Agency – Y.S. Lee (Book 2, 3, and 4 – book 4 due out in June)
11. Highland Pleasures – Jennifer Ashley (Books 5 and 6)
12. Barefoot Bay – Roxanne St Claire (Book 4)
13. Fast Track – Erin McCarthy (Book 7)
14. Dark Swan – Richelle Mead (Book 3 and 4)
15. Club Shadowlands – Cherise Sinclair (Books 7 and 8)
16. In Death – J.D. Robb (Books 19 and 20 – ok, so not really getting caught up, but attempting making a dent…and I have the entire series waiting for me, so who knows)

That gives me a grand total of 29 books that I’m aiming for in 2014.

What about you?
