Top Ten Tuesday ~ Book Haul!!!

It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! Don’t forget to head over to That Artsy Reader Girl and join the linkup!


The Ten Most Recent Additions to My Bookshelf

In times past, I would have needed to guess at this. However, about half a year ago I started an “Owned TBR” spreadsheet, and I’ve been tracking when books get added to the hoard vs. when they actually get read. (It’s interesting to look at the stats.) If you are interested in tracking your own Owned TBR, I’ll be doing a post soon where I share how I keep track of my Owned TBR.

In the meantime, here are the ten most recent books I’ve added to the hoard!

  1. Orconomics: A Satire by J. Zachary Pike ~ (audio) bought 12/30/2019 with Audible credit
  2. Memory and Dream by Charles de Lint ~ (ebook) bought 12/26/2019
  3. Nice Dragons Finish Last by Rachel Aaron ~ (paper) received 12/25/2019 as a Christmas gift from my niece
  4. Pocket Apocalypse by Seanan McGuire ~ (paper) received 12/25/2019 as a Christmas gift from my mother-in-law
  5. Utterly Dwarfed by Rich Burlew ~ (paper) pre-ordered, received 12/20/2019
  6. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen ~ (audio) bought 12/17/2019 with Audible credit
  7. Tempests and Slaughter by Tamora Pierce ~ (paper) bought 12/13/2019
  8. Snowspelled by Stephanie Burgis ~ (ebook) bought 12/13/2019

  1. I still need to read Nice Dragons Finish Last! I’ve heard lots of good things about it. Ooh, this reminds me that I need to read McGuire’s InCryptid series, too. It looks so good, and I keep forgetting to grab the first book.

    Here’s my TTT post.

    1. I’ve enjoyed McGuire’s InCryptid series, but have so far only read the first three books. In some ways I like it better than her October Daye series, because the narrators change every couple of books. (After 13 books in Toby’s head, I’ve lost track of what happens in which of the October Daye books.)

      1. I have a really hard time reading long series with one protagonist unless I really like that protagonist. Characters just … don’t change that much? I think I tend to do it more in manga, where you expect the arcs to be much longer and character growth slower, you know? I haven’t read October Daye, but that’s sort of why I’ve been hesitant, so InCryptid totally appeals to me. :3

    1. I have my Owned TBR post scheduled for just under 2 weeks from now, and I hope it helps you keep track of your inventory! I don’t have it set up to track books I own and have already read, but that would be easy to include if you wanted to track your entire book collection.

  2. Lol- I just realized I did my TBR instead of my bookshelf (I wouldn’t even know what the last 10 books I purchased are…). Oops!

    Anyway- Pocket Apocalypse sounds awesome! Will you be reading Northanger Abbey anytime soon? I loved Austen’s P&P but Sense and Sensibility was not so much for me. I need some more classics to rotate in this year.

    1. A TBR is a form of bookshelf, right? I saw a lot of people interpret the TTT topic that way this week. 🙂

      Pocket Apocalypse does sound fun! I think I’m going to re-start the series instead of jumping back in at book 4, so it might be a little longer before I get to it.

      I like to listen to my audiobooks relatively soon after I get them, so hopefully I’ll get to Northanger Abbey soon! But I mean… realistically, I have some audiobooks that I’ve owned for years and not yet listened to, so…

  3. Ooh, keeping track of when you get a book, read a book, maybe even get rid of a book(?) sounds interesting! I’m definitely looking forward to that post. I also like that mark the format. That’s cool. 🙂

    Also, I hope you like Northanger Abbey whenever you listen to it. I’m rereading it right now and I love it!

    1. I had always considered keeping track of when I got my books, but it honestly wasn’t until I saw someone else tracking it that I decided making a spreadsheet would be a fun idea. (Because spreadsheets are fun.) 🙂

      I’m looking forward to Northanger Abbey! I’ve been enjoying listening to the Austen books, something about the audio format seems to work better for me for those books.
