Is it truly possible that I haven't updated this list since May 17th? I guess so, because I don't see any other posts about my ever-growing TBR pile out there.
Life has been crazy. School ends for the girls tomorrow and I have a bunch of virtual book tour clients to carry me through the summer, so I haven't read as much as I would have liked; though I'm still making fairly decent progress.
I ended up resorting my TBR spreadsheet without realizing it would mess up how I had my current list running, so now you'll see that it is alphabetized instead. That's what I get for being impulsive. I've also got to tell you about a funny thing that happened.
Remember on May 17th when I said I made a decision to donate one of the books from my TBR pile to the school's summer fun basket my daughter's class was putting together? Well, guess who won that basket. My daughter! So, the book is back, but I'm still not going to list it here. I guess I must be meant to read that one.
Since my last list, I've read 15 books and reviewed 13. I have a review for Why God Matters by Karina Lumbert Fabian and Deacon Steven Lumbert scheduled for Thursday. Not reviewed yet are The Confessions of Catherine de Medici by C.W. Gortner and Confessions of a Prairie Bitch by Alison Arngrim (Nellie Oleson, Little House on the Prairie, NBC). Highlighted entries are books I've read since my May 17th post.
