TBR Thursday: Bringing it Back

I decided to start doing TBR Thursday again. With things going on right now I want to immerse myself in positive things. Wishing you all peace in your hearts and minds right now.

Bought (2):

 

Read, Write, Love at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 1) by [Cole, Addison]The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger by [King, Stephen]

Total cost was $0.00 since the first book I bought it for free via Amazon Kindle. The second book I bought a while ago and have no idea how much I paid for it via Barnes and Noble.  

 

Borrow (5):

Cover image for Broken HarborCover image for The Darkest MindsCover image for Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely FineCover image for Renegades

Cover image for The Drawing of the ThreeCover image for Men Explain Things to Me

 

Total TBR: 21 books.

 

Not great, but not as bad as it could be. If I had not finished a ton of books I bought this past week I would be in worse shape. 

 

Do you all have some books you are looking forward to read in the next few days/week?

 

TBR Thursday is the brainchild of my partner in crime, Moonlight Reader.

TBR Thursday 2018

February 8, 2018

 

Books I Acquired (purchase/ARCs):




Nothing this week, how boring, again.




Books I Borrowed:

 

 

 

I had an explosion of audiobooks become available at the library.



Books Put on the Backburner:

 

 

I just felt no connection with the characters.



Books That Are Still on Their Special Must Read Shelf:



Nothing other than the library books mentioned above.



Books I Read:

 

 

 

Three books I truly enjoyed




I manage to finish 3 books this past week.

 

All together I have 3901 on my TBR Pile. These are books I actually own, Print, E and Audio waiting for me to pick them up and read away. (I really should leave the library alone but I just can’t help myself)

WooHoo!! Another Half Price Sale on Audible
A Hologram for the King - Dave Eggers,Dion Graham
Thursday the Rabbi Walked Out: A Rabbi Small Mystery, Book 7 - Harry Kemelman,George Guidall
The Pun Also Rises: How the Humble Pun Revolutionized Language, Changed History, and Made Wordplay More Than Some Antics - John Pollack,Pete Larkin
M. Butterfly - David Henry Hwang,L.A. Theatre Works,Margaret Atwood,Tony Wong,John Lithgow,David Dukes

My 2018 TBR is slowly but surely filling up thanks to all of the sales that Audible is having. Any time I can get a book for less than the cost of a credit, I consider it a good price. So, today I went through my wish-list picking off a few titles that appealed.

The Thursday Night Club and Other Stories of Christmas Spirit - Steven Manchester

The Thursday Night club and other stories by Steven Manchester
Have read other works by this author and have enjoyed them all immensely.
This collection of holiday stories will reach age group. Talks of times when things were simpler and not as commercialized as the holidays are today.
Love memories of visiting the shrine with all the lights, right at dusk and everything goes quiet as the lights go on. Slow down and enjoy the reason for the season.
Also up the road to the railroad and ferris wheel where weather is always 10 degrees colder there than anywhere else. We have recently visited these places doing research of things to do when grandchildren visit.
I love that the author can bring you into the book with such detail you can picture it all in your head. Love additional, new to me holiday stories because they also bring up great memories of caroling around the relatives house each year where we'd bring our own musical instruments of a pot with a spoon to bang on while we all sang. We'd stop in for a cookie and milk then all would leave to go to the next house.
Have to bring the newer generations up to speed because it's all about the simple easy things.
Loved all the books equally as each will bring a smile to your face. This author knows how to write and can't wait to read the new stories.
Received a review copy from the author and this is my honest review.
