The Tottering TBR // Episode X

A weekly post wherein I pretend to lament the fact that I have so many books on my TBR… but in fact am secretly rubbing my hands together with delight that there are so many amazing books left to be discovered…

My tenth installment of the Tottering TBR already!  It’s hard to believe.  It’s also hard to believe how much my list has grown just in those ten weeks!  :-D

Also, this has nothing to do with my TBR at all, but I did have one other exciting event this week – I opened a small Etsy store!!  I am making and (hopefully) selling notebooks, the kind that are very popular as inserts for Midori or traveler’s notebooks.  Feel free to stop by and take a look at ThreeTreeWhimsy.  I’m still working on international shipping, but that will hopefully be coming soon as well!


Added to the General TBR:

Besides adding three books due to random advertising emails, I was inspired to add three other books by different reviews around the blogging neighborhood!

  • It’s no surprise that Cleopatra inspired me to add another thriller to the list – Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson sounds delightfully shivery.  This isn’t the first Swanson book I’ve added to the ol’ TBR, so we’ll see when one finally crops up!
  • 31394845While Sarah over at the Critiquing Chemist gave it a middling 3/5, I still thought her review of The Ill-Kept Oath by C.C. Aune sounded intriguing.  I do love books set in a magical Regency period!
  • I’m almost positive that someone else I follow read The Book of Strange New Things by F.F. Sunland and didn’t care for it, but nevertheless was intrigued by the Weird Girl’s review over on That’s What She Read.

All in all, six new titles on the TBR.

Off the General TBR:

19286545Actually a decent week here.  I reviewed The Shapeshifters, Bitter Greensand also Not George Washington, which will appear in January’s minireviews at a later date.  I also reviewed The White Featherbut it sadly wasn’t on the official TBR…

So, three off!

Total for the General TBR:  869 – only up three!


Added to the Personal TBR:

Free and 99¢ Kindle books are killing me!  Six more this week!  I can’t resist them!  (Okay, that’s actually a lie.  I resist tons of them.  I just can’t resist all of them!)

Off the Personal TBR:

I reviewed another Rutherford Montgomery/Famous Horse Story book, Crazy Kill Range, which will appear in January’s minireviews.  So, one off!

Total for the Personal TBR:  594 – five up!  This one is creeping up when it really ought to be creeping down!  *shakes fist at Kindle*


Added to the Series TBR:

Nothing added this week – go me!

Off the Series TBR:

15850894I removed one series that, on closer review, looked extremely boring (the English Ivy series by Catherine Palmer).  I also removed the Lyra Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede because I got all five of them for $2.99, which means they shifted to the Personal TBR instead.

Total for the Series TBR:  146 – DOWN TWO!!!  Woot!


Added to/Off the Mystery Series TBR:

Nothing here, and I actually still haven’t read the next Joseph O’Laughlin book yet, either; I’ve been plowing my way through Bitter Greens and also trying to catch up on a few Kindle books… I have a bad habit of adding them and then never actually reading them!

Total for the Mystery Series TBR:  Holding steady at 71.


Added to/Off the Nonfiction TBR:

No changes here.

Total for the Nonfiction TBR:  Holding steady at 58.


Grand Totals for the Week:  Up twelve and down seven means I’ve only gone up by five for the second week in a row!  Go me!  :-D
