State of the TBR PIle 17: July 2013

I skipped last month (and I had to remember why: the 48 Hour Book Challenge!), but my TBR pile is still all sorts of out of control. No surprise there.

The Silver Star, by Jeannette Walls (actually, this one is no longer on my pile. I read it yesterday. Review forthcoming.)
Dodger, by Terry Pratchett (my choice for one of my book groups)
Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict, by Laurie Viera Regler (I wanted to reread all the Jane Austen books this year.  I’ve read two. I wonder if reading this one will count?)
The Sasquatch Escape, by Suzanne Selfors (because I’ve liked all of Selfors’ other books)
The Dude and the Zen Master, by Jeff Bridges and Bernie Glassman (so the title of this one appealed to me.)
The Whizz Pop Chocolate Shop, by Kate Saunders (actually, this one isn’t on my pile anymore, either….)
Wild Awake, by Hilary T. Smith (I really like the cover.)
Winger, by Andrew Smith (I read somewhere that this guy should be sitting at the “John Green table”. That’s enough for me.)
The Immortal Von B, by M. Scott Carter (a manager asked me to read this one. A couple months ago, actually. I’ve been procrastinating.)
Invisibility, by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan (I’m curious. Mostly because we got a bunch in, and it hasn’t sold. At all.)
Proxy, by Alex London (It seemed like an interesting — if dystopian; I’m getting tired of those — premise)
Cooked, by Michael Pollan (Hmmmm…. I ought to get to this sooner rather than later.)

What’s on your TBR pile?

  1. Please love Dodger, because I started it and gave up and need reason to try it again.

    My TBR pile:
    Trains & Lovers by A McCall Smith
    The Giver L Lowry
    Matched by Allie Condie
    Tell the Wolves I'm Home
    Beautiful Ruins
    The Light Between Oceans
    Out of the Easy
    The Bookman's Tale
    Mr. Lemoncello's Library


  2. Right now, I'm reading The Woman in White, which I'm really loving. Other books on my stack:

    The Crown of Embers, which I'm super excited for.

    The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

    The Rook

    A Room of One's Own

    The Resurrectionist

    The Sun Also Rises

    The Princess and the Hound


  3. Oooh I'm loving everyone's lists. It makes me itch to go to the book store.

    the top 5 on my teetering pile:

    The School for Good and Evil
    The Elite
    The False Prince
    The Emerald Atlas


  4. Melissa: I really enjoyed Tell the Wolves. And you haven't read Divergent yet?? I'll be interested in what you think.

    Janice: good to know. I'm looking forward to it!

    Cleo: I remember really loving Woman in White as well. It surprised me how much. It looks like you have some other good ones on your pile.

    Bfav, by daughters really enjoyed School for Good and Evil, though I had to admit I was turned off by the premise. The False Prince, however, was GREAT.
