TBR-Orphan Challenge Update 3

So, how did I do on my self-imposed challenge to read at least 1 book each month that's been on my TBR-pile for more than 3 months?

I read Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews.
This one had been on my shelves for a long time and it took a friend telling me I really needed to read it to finally pick it up. It was a nice read, but I've heard the other books in the series get better, so I'll probably pick up book 2 somewhere in the future.

When I started Queene of Light by Jennifer Armintrout it hadn't been on my shelves for 3 months yet... But I got distracted by other books and when I finally picked it up again it was on my shelves for more than 3 months. It was a nice read, but I won't be reading any other books in this series. A review of this book will be posted soon.

So I read one and a half book that had been on my shelves for more than 3 months. It's not the two books I was going for this month, but I'm making progress.

Did you read any books that had been gathering dust?
Let me know in the comments.

I'm trying to do the same thing with my tbr pile! The Kate Daniels series gets much better with each book. Honestly? This is the only series I would recommend starting at book two with.

I DNF'd at 25% on QoL also - interesting!

I'm getting more and more interested in book 2 of the Kate Daniels series I'll confess.

@Jeffe: It's not that it's a bad book, it's just.... a bit bland on the emotions.

Jeffe Kennedy said...

Yeah - I think I just lost interest. I can't even remember it that clearly.

Yes, I do have some old series on my shelves as well, so those books are great for my personal challenge. I just get distracted by the shiny new ones the mailperson delivers.
