Cleaning Up The TBR #5

Back in November last year, I did my first “Cleaning Up the TBR” post, something I first saw over on Fictionophile, who had seen it on Lost in a Story, and thought it was a really good idea. I know I’m not the only one who thought the same as I was seeing it everywhere so I am glad to jump on the bandwagon. Hopefully no one will mind 🙂

The idea is you take your Goodreads TBR list, sort by ascending date added, and look at the oldest five to ten items on your list. If you haven’t read them by now, are you likely to? Why or why not? If you want to keep them, make the case. This is my fifth visit to the list so far, with the last one in May. Here’s what’s next on the list…

Stacking Shelves: 3rd February, 2018

STSsmallOnce again, I’m joining in with Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews and Marlene of Reading Reality for Stacking Shelves, where you share the real and virtual books you have added to your shelves in the last week.

Despite my looking to read more physical books at the moment, this week, every book I got was an ebook (it figures!) – but they all looked so good, I just couldn’t resist…

Month in review: January, 2018

Month in review

Bye-bye January, hello February and – hopefully – warmer weather and longer days.  I long to see the sun after five in the evening!  For the first time in a while, I feel like saying a month didn’t fly by.  It was nice.  With school starting late after the holidays and a bit of a leisurely start to the month as a result, it hasn’t felt rushed for once.  Reading wise, it was pretty good too, with some great books (clicking on the links will take you to the reviews)…

Cleaning up the TBR #2

Back in November, I did my first “Cleaning Up the TBR” post, something I first saw over on Fictionophile, who had seen it on Lost in a Story, and thought it was a really good idea. I know I’m not the only one who thought the same as I’ve been seeing it everywhere recently so I am glad to jump on the bandwagon. Hopefully no one will mind 🙂

The idea is you take your Goodreads TBR list, sort by ascending date added, and look at the oldest five to ten items on your list. If you haven’t read them by now, are you likely to? Why or why not? If you want to keep them, make the case.  I did the oldest five in November and plan on doing another five this month.

Cloak and Dagger Challenge 2018 (late sign-up)

cdchallengebadge2016

Last year, I took part in the Cloak and Dagger challenge and loved it – mainly because it’s the only one I nailed (or will have once I update the book list!).  It is right up my street with the subject matter and it’s hosted by one of my favourite bloggers, Stormi at books, movies, reviews oh my!, along with Barb at Booker Ts Farm.  Given it went so well for me, I’m doing it again (because I like to feel like a winner and this might be the only way!).

To take part, you can read any book from the mystery, suspense, thriller or crime genres (or sub-genres).  They need to be books or novellas over 100 pages so no short stories.  You don’t have to be a blogger as long as you post your reviews somewhere (so Goodreads is fine).  . Any sub-genres are welcome as long as they incorporate one of these genres.  Then you pick the level you want to read for:

I first saw this post idea over on Fictionophile, who herself had seen it on Lost in a Story and thought it was a really good idea.  I know I’m not the only one who thought the same as I’ve been seeing it everywhere recently so I am glad to jump on the bandwagon.  Hopefully no one will mind 🙂

The oldest on my list comes from 2014 (I actually deleted my Goodreads account for a while and this is when I started back up again because I couldn’t think of a better way to keep track of books I wanted to read).

Stacking Shelves: 18th November, 2017

STSsmallOnce again, I’m joining in with Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews and Marlene of Reading Reality for Stacking Shelves, where you share the real and virtual books you have added to your shelves in the last week.

Over the last fee weeks, I have been working really hard to catch up on my reviews of ARCs, which I have finally done.  I have nothing overdue (yay!).  Which meant I felt perfectly justified in requested more books from Netgalley this week… 

Stacking the shelves: 21st October, 2017

STSsmallOnce again, I’m joining in with Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews and Marlene of Reading Reality for Stacking Shelves, where you share the real and virtual books you have added to your shelves in the last week.

So it had to happen – I fell off the NetGalley wagon!  Only for one book though and – in the way that my brain works – I have decided it doesn’t really count because it’s for a book that isn’t out till next April so there is plenty of time to read and review it (yes, I know, it sounds like an excuse but I think it’s a good one!).
