Books Left Unread

Welcome to my blog post where I talk about the books I have been meaning to read, but just have not yet. You know what I am talking about – the books that have remained unread for various reasons yet when you see them you think, “You know, I really need to read that.” Instead you get distracted by another book, series, or something in your TBR pile. It happens to the best of us. I want to spotlight those books in the hope that I can persuade myself to move them up on my TBR list.

This week’s post is dedicated to:

A Tyranny of Petticoats edited by Jessica Spotswood

A Tyranny of Petticoats (A Tyranny of Petticoats, #1)

 

This has been sitting on my shelf for a while now. I believe Jessica Spotswood has even signed it. So why haven’t I started? Possibly because anthologies are hit or miss for me. Have you read this one?

November Monthly Wrap Up

books

Hello everyone! I promised myself I would be better at my monthly wrap ups so here we are! I knocked a few reads off of my TBR so I’m proud of myself for that. I groaned with disappointment when some of my anticipated reads turned out to be massive duds.

Books I Read

I roughly finished 23 books in November. I am quite disappointed in myself for that but there are several factors that caused me to read 14 less than the month before: I had a medical scare that took over my my thoughts for weeks; Thanksgiving holiday meant I was without my books for four days; I read much longer books than I normally do; and one physical book took me much longer to finish than it should have. I really wanted to push myself. Most were through Overdrive while two were sent by publishers for book tours and/or review, and a few were through my Audible account. Thank you to the publishers!!

November Book Events 

I was lazy and didn’t attend any book events during month. 😦

December Book Events

I don’t have anything on my radar as of right now but that could always change. Until that does, I’m going to continue to plow through my TBR. 🙂

 

How about you? What did you read? What bookish events are on the calendar for you?

This Raging Light by Estelle Laure

This Raging Light

 

I think I already know what is holding me back from this one – “realistic fiction”. That means I want to really like this but I may find the smallest thing that I don’t like and will convince myself the entire story is bad. Or perhaps it is because the cover does not grab my attention. It really looks kind of bland to me. 😦 Have you read this? What did you think?

RoseBlood by A.G. Howard

RoseBlood

 

I adore this author in a way that I cannot put into words. I loved her Splintered series – so much so that she gave me partial ownership of Jeb! *swoon* I just cannot figure out why I haven’t started this one yet. It is right up my alley, everything I want to read in a story, but yet I’m afraid of being disappointed. Maybe that’s what is holding me back? What are you thoughts? Have you read this?

October Monthly Wrap Up

books

Hello everyone! I promised myself I would be better at my monthly wrap ups so here we are! I knocked a lot of want to reads off of my TBR so I’m proud of myself for that. I reread a favorite (Geekerella FTW) and groaned with disappointment when some of my anticipated reads turned out to be massive duds.

Books I Read

I roughly finished 37 books in October. As always, I feel I could have done better. I’ll admit, I DNFd a couple of these books but GR counts them anyways. Most were through Overdrive while two were sent by publishers for book tours and/or review, and a few were through my Audible account. Thank you to the publishers!!

October Book Events 

I attended Texas Teen Book Festival and it was amazing. I was blown away by how great it was (check out my recap of the festival here).

Ashfall by Mike Mullin

Ashfall (Ashfall, #1)

 

I know the time of dystopian stories is over but they are still one of my favorite genres. I adore them so much and I can’t explain why. Maybe the thought of an alternate future where the technology we have grown accustomed to is gone and society is forced to actually live off the land, interact with one another, and find a way to survive. Oh yeah, always the chance of zombies and/or some deadly virus. That’s my jam! This book has been on my shelf and yet for some reason I haven’t started it. Have you read it? I know it has been out for a while but I’d love to hear your thoughts if you read this one.

The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne

I honestly have no good reason for not reading this yet. It is still sitting on my shelf looking all pretty with that cover but I haven’t started it yet. 😦 Have you read it? What did you think?
