Last month: January 2016 | This month: February 2016
In Tracking my TBR, I look back on the prior month’s TBR progress — which books did I read? which books did I skip? — and feature the upcoming month’s TBR “grab-bag” (my version of a semi-scheduled TBR pile).
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
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. 😖
(*No Goodreads link for Mistborn: Secret History, because there are major spoilers everywhere for this book. So, Mistborn-fans, don’t read any reviews, just go buy the ebook and then stay away until you’ve finished The Bands of Mourning, after which you may read M:SH. Okay? Cool.) (Also, ummm, if you’re someone who reads acknowledgements, you might see a familiar name there… 😱😱)
JANUARY TBR LEFTOVERS
Basically everything in my January TBR is a leftover. I’m going to have to officially DNF Tell the Wind and Fire… it’s really not working for me. I’ll probably do a quick DNF Q&A on the blog, eventually. I also started reading Into the Dim, but I haven’t finished it yet — it feels very predictable and I’m having a hard time staying interested. :( I’m probably going to skip Assassin’s Heart altogether, since people I trust have read that one and been underwhelmed. As for the rest…
FEBRUARY TBR GRAB-BAG
…I’ve thrown them all into my grab-bag for this month. There are definitely more books here than I can read this month — I’m going to be taking it easy because work is going to possibly literally kill me in the next few weeks. But I’ll pick and choose based on which books are coming out soonest, and which I most desperately want to read. (AGOS I’M LOOKING AT YOU — you’re next. 😘😏😘)
What did you read in January?
Did you read any of the books that I skipped over?
Which books in my February TBR should I prioritize?
