Readathon Pile

Okay I'm getting super-excited about this and I was going to post all of the books that I have yet to read but I think that it will be better if I just post the ones that I am planning on getting too. Keeping in mind that the books I read may end up not being those ones at all because I change my mind a lot and I have a lot of unread books from the library as well as from the $5 for all the books you can fit in your bag

I like to have a lot of choice in my reading material which is eclectic and perhaps why I fail at having a YA blog. Don't get me wrong, I love YA but I cannot live on one genre alone. I do not except that I will get through all the books in either pile or both piles and there are many books that are not in the pile that I might read instead but I figured I should at least try and have some method to my madness.

These piles might have been amassed sort of randomly too so that is why they are subject to change.

So anyway this is Pile 1 the Pile that I hope to get to.

No the books are not straight because really why would I do that? Anyway since you can't read them they are from bottom to top.

Travels with Zenobia: Paris to Albania by Model T Ford - Rose Wilder Lane and Helen Dore Boyleston (yes she of the Sue Barton books fame) - I am on a Rose Wilder Lane kick right now.
Once Upon a Toad - Heather Vogel Frederick
Salvage the Bones - Jesmyn Ward
The Prairie Thief - Melissa Wiley
Silhouette of a Sparrow - Molly Beth Griffin
Seriously.... I'm Kidding - Ellen DeGeneres
A Monster Calls - Patrick Ness
A Ribbon of Shining Steel - Juliet Lawson
Exiles from War - Jean Little - These two I went through a Dear Canada phase earlier this year and these are the only two that I still have.
Behold Here's Poison - Georgette Heyer
Shakespeare's Christmas - Charlaine Harris - this one I will only get to if I like the first two that are on my iPad
A Secret Rage - Charlaine Harris

The backup pile

This is a little more diverse and reflective of my reading habits.

Happier at Home  - Gretchen Rubin
The Name of the Star - Maureen Johnson - I hear the sequel is out now so I am of course just getting around to this!
Looking for Transwonderland: Travels in Nigeria - Noo Saro-Wiwa - Once upon a time I wrote a thesis on oil and corruption in Nigeria. I am still interested in Nigeria.
I have Iraq in my Shoe - Gretchen Berg
One Way of Love - Gamel Woolsey
Free Land - Rose Wilder Lane
Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores - Jen Campbell - I'm a librarian someone needs to come up with weird things patrons have said to librarians.
Picture Perfect (Commercial Breaks 2) - P.G. Kain
When Beauty Tamed the Beast - Eloisa James - also if that doesn't work I have another Eloisa James and a Julia Quinn I haven't gotten to.
Bruno's Dream - Iris Murdoch

Plus the stuff on my Kindle including Bitterblue.

  1. I change my mind a lot too, so it's great having big piles to choose from on Read-a-thon day. Good luck with your reading tomorrow!
