Cora’s TBR Challenge Check-In

July has almost gone, and we have five months left in 2016. How goes the TBR reading? I finished my spring classes just after last month’s Check In and have been trying to make up for lost time ever since. Summer hours at the day job mean that I’m up too early in the morning for my taste, but I’ve been getting some pages read before bed.

Helps me sleep, too 😉

In audiobooks, I finally finished listening to Dragonfly in Amber (which I started last year–thanks goodness I’d already read it, or I wouldn’t remember what was going on between listens!). I have about thirty books on to To Be Listened To list, and I’m not sure what to start next…but I bet it’ll be shorter than Dragonfly!

In e- and print books, I’ve made it through three of the eight entries in Tessa Dare’s Spindle Cove series and am working on a fourth (A Week To Be Wicked–Minerva and Lord Payne are so much fun together!). This whole series is amazingly well done, and I suspect I’ll be working my way through the rest of Tessa’s back list when I get a chance. I also started M. Louisa Locke’s Victorian San Francisco Mystery series. I bought the first three a couple of years ago and am wondering why I waited so long to get to them. That’s one of the things I love most about the TBR Challenge–finding gems in my bins and collections that I didn’t even know I had 😀

  1. Hi Cora! I found out Tessa Dare is coming to my book club in Oct, so I will make sure to read the Spindle Cove books before then! I am up to 93 books! I finished the Bridgertons! Currently doing some random rereads, including The Wallflowers – I got through the first 2 books so far. I still want to finish 2 other series, for which I have one book left – Kristan Higgins’ Anything for You and Treasured by Thursday by Catherine Bybee. I also want to finish the Mackenzies & McBrides, but I may need to reread the first 5. It’s been a while. I love Ian, anyway! We have been taking some trips to look at colleges with my daughter & that is cutting into my free time for reading, but worth it!


    1. Wonderful on all counts! College trips are important for sure, but I suspect you’ll be all read up and ready to go for your book club when the time comes 😀
