Long Awaited Reads Month

Oops - just remembered that I never checked back in at the end of January to review how I did on choosing long-awaited reads.

Of the six books I finished in January, four were books I've been meaning to read for years (Life of Pi, Possession, The Secret Garden, and and I Am Madame X) and a fifth was a long-awaited reread (Daddy Long Legs). My second audio book in January was also a long-awaited read  but Shirley, by Charlotte Bronte, won't be finished for a couple more weeks yet.

I'd call that a successful month! If I could just keep up this pace of reading books I already own, I could make a real dent in my TBR mountain. Assuming, of course, that I don't add more books that I'm getting read.


  1. That is a pretty good month! So glad that you got loads read from the stacks.

  2. Glad you got to read so many good ones. January was also a good month for me but February has slowed down significantly! Good luck denting that pile ;)

  3. Great job! I have piles and piles of books waiting for me to read that I keep putting off because of all the e-ARCs. I've only read The Secret Garden on that list though I've started and stopped Possession about 6 times!

  4. I have this dilemma! I add more TBR than I'm able to finish. Trying NOT to actually buy when I want to read...
