So yeah, this month I managed to finish five books and had one DNF. Things have just been super busy with my husband starting grad school, etc. Also, TV. So, there’s that. I’m like 24 books behind on my Goodreads challenge right now *shrugs*. Also, I now officially suck at blogging.

There you have it. I have low expectations for October. Luckily, I don’t have any ARCs that are getting published in November, so these are just a couple from my backlog.

Top Ten Tuesday: Just because I own it, doesn’t mean I’ve read it

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted byΒ The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic but they’re taking a little break right now (well-deserved). The topic I’ve come up with this week is: Ten books that have been on my Kindle forever that I actually really want to read, but haven’t read yet

1) My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, & Jodi Meadows – Purchased 12/13/2016
2) The Siren by Kiera Cass – Purchased 6/3/2017 (but on my TBR forever)
3) Truthwitch by Susan Dennard – Purchased 5/14/2017 (but on my TBR forever)
4) The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken – Purchased 9/30/2014
5) Bone Gap by Laura Ruby – Purchased 3/12/2017 (but on my TBR forever)

6) City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare – Purchased 11/25/2014
7) Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins – Purchased 4/12/2015
8) A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro – Purchased 12/27/2016
9) The 100 by Kass Morgan – Purchased 12/29/2014
10) The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow – Purchased 11/14/2015

Which of these do I need to move up my TBR?
