Last month: August 2015 | This month: September 2015
“Tracking my TBR” is a new feature in which 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).
So, after my July hiatus, I wrote up a post about my “Hiatus progress” and my August TBR, which people seemed to like, so I think I’m going to continue the trend! Even though I know what books I read every month, and which ones fell by the wayside, I think it’s helpful to see it represented in a post. (Thanks so much to Tiff @ Mostly YA Lit for suggesting “Tracking my TBR” for this feature’s title!!)
So, when last we saw it, my August TBR “grab-bag” looked like this. (See my hiatus progress post for more info about my TBR grab-bags!) Out of that grab-bag (plus my list of books I need to reread) these were the books I ended up reading:
Rereads: Cinder, The Well of Ascension, Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire
New Reads: Daughter of Dusk, Dumplin’, Everything, Everything, The Rest of Us Just Live Here,
Never Never, Queen of Shadows
I know, I know, only 6 new books read last month (INCLUDING QUEEN OF SHADOWS, YES, BECAUSE HOLY CRAP MY LIBRARY IS THE BEST LIBRARY). But I think I did well, especially considering that most of my weekends were totally booked! (Um, with stuff other than books. Unfortunately.)
Having struck 6 books from the August TBR Grab-Bag (QoS didn’t count, but I’m currently reading Fran Wild’s Updraft, which will count as my 1st September book), these are my August “leftovers”:
It’s a lot, I know. O_O I’m gonna try to shuffle some of those books into this month — like Last Song Before Night, Hunter, Lock & Mori, The Unquiet, The Weight of Feathers, and This Monstrous Thing — because I really want to read them. But the rest will have to wait, because my official September TBR Grab-Bag is freaking glorious:
My #1 priorities are: The Aeronaut’s Windlass, The Rose Society, Dreamstrider, Signs Point to Yes, and The Scorpion Rules. (Shut up, don’t tell me that’s already 5 new books and I only read 6 last month. I WILL OVER-FILL MY PLATE IF I WANT TO, OKAY.)
What did you read in August?
Did you pick up any of the books I skipped?
Which of my September TBR are YOU most excited for?
Let me know in the comments! After I finish Updraft, I’m so excited to have a clean slate for September reads!
