Cora’s TBR Challenge Check-In

The Bullet Catcher's DaughterHappy summer, Northern Hemisphere! And happy winter, Southern Hemisphere! Can you believe we’re halfway through the year already? Are you halfway through your TBR Challenge books?

I am not halfway through, but I am (finally) making progress. The Day Job has been quiet–literally–so I’ve been listening to Dragonfly in Amber once again, and am about 3/4 of the way through it. It’s been a few years since I read the book and Davina Porter does such a wonderful job as narrator, so listening is a pleasant way to pass the time at my desk.

I’ve also been taking breaks from coursework (one more paper left to write!) with books to refresh my ANightToSurrender-400x646brain and sped through The Bullet Catcher’s Daughter (my first foray into Steampunk), which was fun and mysterious and intriguing…and that’s just the series title: The Fall of the Gas-Lit Empire. I’ve already put the other two books in the series on my list and can’t wait to read them! I’m in the last few chapters of A Night To Surrender, too, which as been such a wonderful diversion from reading disabilities and classroom assessments. I have yet to read a Tessa Dare book that isn’t fabulous, and the rest of the Spindle Cove series is in my TBR collection, so you can bet I’ll be visiting there again 🙂

  1. Hi Cora! Glad your are able to get back to some pleasure reading/listening! I have read Tessa’s Fairy Tale books, but still need to get to Spindle Cove. I am up to 77 books, so I should be able to reach my goal. I am 2 books away from finishing the Bridgertons, which has long been on my list. I am also 2 books from finishing a contemporary series – Weekday Brides- by Catherine Bybee. I had read the first 4 books quite awhile ago. Doing a reread of Kristan Higgins Blue Heron series, for which the most recent book came out in Dec & I haven’t read yet. Hope you have a great summer!


  2. Hi Cora! I’ve read 29 books to date and 3 this month so far. I’m currently reading “Nine Ways Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake” by Sarah MacLean and listening to “Deadly Engagement” by Lucinda Brant.

    I am fairly up-to-date with my reviews (only 1 outstanding) for the first time in ages, which I’m really pleased about.


      1. Yes, Alex Wyndham is narrating it. He is definitely one of the best narrators. He has such a deep, rich voice and each character is pitched perfectly and his ability to sustain a wide range of characters’ voices throughout is just amazing.


        1. I have Midnight Marriage and Deadly Affair to listen to, both read by Alex, and I can’t wait! I’m guessing I won’t be able to listen to them at the Day Job though, because I won’t be concentrating on anything but the book 🙂
