August is going to be a busy month for me, with a house move and WorldCon, so I’m hoping that I can still fit plenty of reading in, as the TBR’s getting a bit ridiculous…
Goodreads Reading Challenge
31 books read in July, which is pretty good, since I have barely read anything in this last week! That brings me up to a total of 280 for the year so far – I think I should be able to get over 300 by the end of August, which will be fun…
My Owned TBR
Between YALC, NetGalley, and a really great crop of review copies, the TBR is looking a little unsalvageable. It’s currently sitting at 603, and I know that there are books in the post. I’ve started a little hashtag on Twitter of #TBRShelfControl, where I’m making mini-TBRs to focus my reading, and to get some small victories – do join in if you’d like! I’m going to be trying my hardest to read as fast as I can, and also to pick off some of the shorter titles on the list just to get back down nearer 500 again. It’ll be easier once we’ve moved and I have access to physical books again, as I read on paper much more quickly than on screen.
Oh NetGalley. I love you and I hate you. My shelf currently has 137 books I need to review, though about half have been read. I’ve been super lax with reviews this month.
Just a couple of tours this month, and I’ve left the middle of the month free! These are all stellar books though so I’m very excited!
2nd – Mrs Sommersby’s Second Chance
26th – The Optickal Illusion
28th – How To Love a Duke in Ten Days
30th – The Song of the Sycamore
So, pretty much all the physical books I own are in boxes right now… It’s a Kindle reading month for me again! Please check out my TBR page if you want to recommend something to me – Kindle copies are marked (K) for Kindle or (NG) for NetGalley. And wish me luck getting back down from 600!
