In Tracking my TBR, I look back on the prior month’s TBR progress; and, in this edition, I’m also featuring the books I’m currently reading, and a couple titles I’m most looking forward to picking up this month.


February was… ugh. So let’s jump right into it, shall we?

BOOKS READ IN FEBRUARY

A Gathering of Shadows Final Bands of Mourning CaptivePrince PrincesGambit KingsRising

Five books last month! One re-read, Bands; new reads were A Gathering of Shadows and the Captive Prince trilogy (AGOS was 5 stars, obviously; CP trilogy were 2.5, 3.5, and then 4 stars respectively).

One month down, eleven to go — and I kicked off 2016 with re-reads. A bunch of them. …Okay, fine, exclusively them. (Don’t judge me.)

BOOKS I (RE-)READ IN JANUARY

Re-reads: The Way of Kings, Shadows of Self, Mistborn: Secret History*,
Warbreaker, Written in RedMurder of Crows
New Reads: None…

I didn’t even read that many books in January, and they were all re-reads. Every. Single. One. Work was crazy, so I think I chose the bookish equivalent of “comfort-food” last month. And this month might end up being the same… We shall see. 😖

🎉 Happy New Year!!! 🎊

Okay, yes, I know it’s been 2016 for a couple days now, and this post is a little late, but I was on vacation, okay?! And one of my resolutions this year is to not stress about posting things when I “have” to, but when I want to. Thus the slightly “late” Tracking My TBR post. You don’t mind, do you? I didn’t think so. 😉

Seriously though, I really can’t believe it’s 2016. I’m actually very glad to say goodbye to 2015 — it wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t great for me either, so I’m really excited to start fresh this year. And that means starting fresh with a new TBR pile! But first, I’ll recap the books I read last month, my final reads of 2015…

TTBR_ReadInDec15

Re-reads: Mistborn: The Final Empire, The Well of Ascension, The Hero of Ages, The Alloy of Law
New Reads: Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell, Their Fractured Light, First & Then, This Savage Song, Don’t Touch, Riders, Rebel of the Sands, The Radiant Road
Marked as DNF: Starflight, The Impostor Queen

Soooooo I guess my assumption that I wouldn’t read very much last month was a little off… 😁 I re-read four books, read one novella (Shadows for Silence), and read seven other full-length books! I took time off from blogging in the last couple weeks of December, but I’ll be trying to catch up on reviews for a few of these as soon as I can this month.

I adored Their Fractured Light (perfect ending to that series, omg). First & Then was pretty good (fun, light, short). This Savage Song was CRAZY AMAZING I CAN’T EVEN DEAL. Don’t Touch was a Christmas present and a spur-of-the-moment mood-read, which ended up being enjoyable but not amazing. Riders was overall very good, but it had some rough sections for me. Rebel of the Sands was SUPER fun (preorder this if you haven’t yet, it’s worth it). And my last read of 2015, The Radiant Road, was absolutely stunning. Lyrical and gorgeous and magic. It was wonderful.

I… wait, it’s December? As in… Christmas-month? As in… it will be 2016 in 31 days?!?! Bring it on. Don’t get me wrong, I love December (Christmas is my favorite time of year, plus I get 10 consecutive days off work this month I LOVE DECEMBER), but I am ready for the new year. My next Tracking My TBR post will be on January 1st, 2016. Wheee!

That said, this post-series is also a time for reflection, so: these were the books I ended up reading last month…

Happy November!! AKA the month I have to hold myself back from snapping at people who mention anything too Christmas-y before Thanksgiving. (Thanksgiving is important, too, okay?! GOSH.) 😉

Anyway, I’m super excited to talk about my TBR this month, so let’s get down to it. First, though — these were the books in my October grab-bag. Out of those books (plus my audiobook to-read list), these were the ones I ended up reading in October:

Another month, another TBR Tracker… WAIT WHAT HAPPENED TO SEPTEMBER, COME BACK, I DIDN’T EVEN GET TO PROPERLY SAY HELLO. (No seriously, is it just me, or are the months disappearing faster than usual?)

Anyway, a new month means I get to sit down and figure out what I read last month, what got overlooked, and what’s on my plate for this month. If you remember, these were the books in my September grab-bag. Out of those books (plus my list of books I need to reread), these were the titles I ended up reading in September:

Re-reads: Scarlet, The Young Elites
New Reads: The Masked Truth, The Scorpion Rules, The Aeronaut’s Windlass, The Rose Society, Willful Machines, Until We Meet Again, The Anatomical Shape of a Heart, Alanna: The First Adventure, In the Hand of the Goddess
