Cora’s TBR Challenge Check-In

Two months down, fellow readers! Is your TBR pile getting smaller yet?

I’m finally starting to make some headway. I listed to John McWhorter’s Our Magnificent Bastard Tongue when all was quiet at the day job. If you’re a language nerd, you should definitely read (or listen to) this book. The author did his own narration, so if you listen to the audio don’t expect world-class acting. But the man clearly knows his stuff and enjoys his work 🙂

I’m working on two ebooks this month as well: A Night To Surrender by Tessa Dare (the first of her Spindle Cove series) and, from my TBR library list, The Proposal by Mary Balogh (the first in her Survivors Club series). Tessa Dare has quickly become one of my go-to authors when I want a fun, well-written Regency, and Mary Balogh has been one of my favorites for years. Our weather here in Michigan has recently devolved back into snowy, sloppy winter, too, so I suspect my free time the rest of the week will be spent with a fuzzy blanket and my Kindle.

  1. Cora – The Proposal was so good! I will probably do a reread, since I want to read the rest of the series. The Spindle Cove series is on my list again.

    I’m happy with my reading progress. I am almost done with my 10th book for this month (Cold-Hearted Rake!). I read a couple of books from 6-8 months ago. I also got through 2 more older Lisa Kleypas books. I finally read Fangirl, which I have taken out from the library 3 or 4 times & kept renewing. I’m so glad – it was a really unique young adult book. Just wish I could get my 16 year old daughter to do some recreational reading! In other news, I am loving the new job, 4 weeks in!

  2. I am currently reading “The Countess Conspiracy” by Courtney Milan, which counts towards my self- challenge to read one book a month acquired before 1 January 2013. I am still one book behind with this challenge though.

    I have read two excellent books this month – The Hunter by Kerrigan Byrne and A Christmas Gone Perfectly Wrong by Cecilia Grant – both new-to-me authors. I will definitely be reading more of their books!

    Tessa Dare’s Spindle Cove series is among my all-time favourites. I’m so glad she is revisiting the series, and this month I read “Lord Dashwood Missed Out”, the Spindle Cove novella she released in December.


    1. I’m in the middle of Courtney Milan’s Brothers Sinister series, too (though I have been for quite some time now), and I’m a fan 🙂 Maybe I’ll pick that one back up when I finish the two I’m working on…
