Top Ten Tuesday: Recent Additions to My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme created by The Broke and the Bookish blog, and now hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is: Recent Additions to My TBR

These ten books are not necessarily the ten most recent additions to my TBR, but rather a diverse sampling of some of the many books I’ve added to my Goodreads TBR this month. I’ve included upcoming releases as well as backlist; nonfiction and fiction.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme created by The Broke and the Bookish blog, and now hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is: Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump.

I think we can all agree that reading slumps are THE WORST.

Luckily, there are a few ways to get your reading mojo back. I’ve included ten categories of books that often get me excited about reading again, plus ten specific books that have helped me get out of a slump in the past.

Top Ten Tuesday: Short Story Collections by Women Writers

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme created by The Broke and the Bookish blog, and now hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is: Short Story Collections

In creating this list, I realized that while I’ve read many short stories over the years, I haven’t read very many complete collections. I’ve decided to include five short story collections I’ve read and loved by women writers, and five I want to read.

#24in48 Readathon Sign-Up and TBR

I’ve decided to attempt the #24in48 Readathon this weekend.

If you’re new to 24in48, this is the basic gist: beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, participants read for 24 hours out of that 48-hour period. You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, four hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six four-hour sessions with four hour breaks in between, whatever you’d like.

I’m aiming for 12 hours of reading instead of 24, but I’m still excited to participate! I’ll be updating my progress on twitter (@iamnobird).

Here’s my TBR list for my first 24 in 48 Readathon:

Thanksgiving Readathon Sign-Up and TBR

This Wednesday kicks off the Thanksgiving Readathon hosted by Ottavia at Novels and Nonfiction and Jackie from Death at Tsundoku. It’s a laid-back readathon with the goal of reading as much as you can from Wednesday, November 22nd through Sunday, November 26th.

It looks like the the cold I’ve been fighting off is finally catching up with me, so I might not feel like doing much besides reading later this week. Hopefully I won’t feel too sick to read, because that is the absolute worst.

Here’s my (tentative) TBR:
