State of the TBR Pile: June 2015

A couple of items of business first: 1) Pam at Mother Reader is doing her 48 hour Book Challenge again this year. It starts THIS coming Friday and runs through Sunday. I don’t know how much I’ll be able to participate, mostly since I’m going to be single-mom-ing this week. I may be able to get some in. If YOU can, however, I highly recommend it. It’s a blast! (And a good way to knock down the TBR pile…)

2) KidlitCon Registration is OPEN! Woot! (I haven’t registered yet; the early bird registration is good through August 24th, though, so I have some time.) If you haven’t had the chance to go to this Con yet, you should. It’s the best. (Granted, it’s really the only con I go to, so I’m kinda biased.)

My TBR Pile is more out of control than usual. (No surprise.) In fact, this is what it looks like:

The small stack on the left is what I’m actually reading right now. The books on the right are ones I’m looking at, considering for a work initiative thingy we’ve been doing. I need a YA book for July, and nothing’s grabbing me. The graphic novels on the right are ones for my book group (which no one showed up to last time. Sadness.)

And the big stack in the back? That’s the pile I actually try to choose from when I need a new book to read:

Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromley (Publisher rep recommendation)
Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson (Because I liked the Fire and Thorns trilogy)
The Wand and Sea by Claire Caterer (An author event coming up)
The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins (People at work are raving about this one)
Seriously Wicked by Tina Connolly (It looked cute)
Lois Lane: Fallout by Gwenda Bond (Been getting some good buzz)
How to Write a Novel by Melanie Sumner (Publisher rep recommendation)
Husky by J. E. Sayre (Publisher rep recommendation)
Spelled by Betsy Schow (Because it’s Wizard of Oz and looks fun)
The Cage by Megan Shepherd
Truth Commission by Susan Juby
Read Between the Lines by Jo Knowles

What’s on your TBR pile?
