Working through My TBR Pile

I feel really good about this silly TBR pile right now. On March 28th, the total books stood at 61, with another book on the way. That book was Secret Sisters by Tristi Pinkston, which we reviewed earlier today.

I also added 4 new books to my list since I posted on March 28th. Two of these are virtual book tour clients (1 mine, 1 not), a former client of Pump Up Your Book Promotion, and a book I wanted to read because I enjoyed the author's interviews that I read at various blogs. I love discovering new authors!

Since my last post, I've reviewed 7 titles, and have 2 reviews waiting to be written. Here's what the pile looks like now. All bolded titles have been read since March 28th.
