My #ctbs wrap-up!

conquering the book stacks

#ctbs = Conquering the Book Stacks


I had high hopes and lofty plans for CTBS. I was Icarus, flying too close to the sun. And like Icarus, well, things did not work out so well for me!


Here are my lofty goals and here is an update!


Books I read in August:

Pickle in Middle Murder by Jessie Chandler (review)

The Lake House by Marci Nault (review)

Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich (stacks)

The Lemon Orchard by Luanne Rice (review)

The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Café by Mary Simses (review)

The Violets of March by Sarah Jio (stacks)

The Never List by Koethi Zan (review)

Seed No Evil by Kate Collins (library)

The 9th Girl by Tami Hoag (library)

The Outcast by Jolina Petersheim (review)

Speak of the Devil by Allison Leotta (review)

Whistling Past The Graveyard by Susan Crandall (review)

The Tao of Martha by Jen Lancaster (stacks)

The Comfort of Lies by Randy Susan Meyers (stacks)

Hotshot by Julie Garwood (review)

You Knew Me When by Emily Liebert (review)

While We Were Watching Downton Abbey by Wendy Wax (stacks)

The Last Camellia by Sarah Jio (stacks)

A True History of the Captivation, Transport to Strange Lands, & Deliverance of Hannah Guttentag: A Novel by Josh Russell (stacks)

The Heist by Janet Evanovich (stacks)

The Mourning Hours by Paula Treick DeBoard (review)

Shut Up, You’re Welcome by Annie Choi (review)


22 books! Sounds good, right? Yes, but only 8 were from the stacks! 😦 Sigh…..


But at least I read 8 from over stacked shelves! There’s 1 positive! The other- I DID NOT BUY ANY BOOKS in August. I looked temptation in the eye and walked away like a winner!


How do you think I did? Room for improvement? Or A for effort?
