Time for another Mount TBR Challenge check-in! Are you ready to hear how many books from my TBR pile I read over the last three months?!
Yep, in three months, I read ONE book from my TBR pile. That brings my total to eleven for the year, with twenty-nine TBR books left to read in order to complete the challenge.
Reading twenty-nine books over six months is easy-peasy for me, so I’m not really worried…yet…that I won’t make it to the top of Mount Ararat. I think I’m going to need some help in order to make it by December 31st, though. Here’s what I have in mind:
I’m going to need all the authors of the world to stop writing new books for the next six months so I can catch up.
Can you do that for me? No? Oh.
You can click here to see the list of books I’m working with–the titles linked in blue are the books I have read and reviewed.
Of the books I’ve read so far this year (from that list), my favorite is The Warmth of Other Suns, written by Isabel Wilkerson. I knew it was going to be good, but it was even better than I expected it to be. The narrative nonfiction form is perfect for the story Wilkerson tells about the Great Migration, and I got really attached to the people she writes about. I learned quite a bit, too.
So this quarter was a bust, but I’m going to work hard to finish the challenge before the end of the year. Onward and upward!
