September TBR pile...


0828151103_HDR

Here's what I *hope* to get read and reviewed for the month. I'm doing really well with my BEA books this year and I'm being very picky about accepting review books - only 2 at a time - no more until I read and review - then I'm allowed to request again. HUGE burden lifted! I don't feel swamped or pressured anymore.

Amazon Vine:
Placebo Junkies is an October release but needs to be reviewed within 30 days so I need to read it this month.

BEA Books:
Dumplin', Tonight the Streets Are Ours, Everything Everything, Mr. Puffball, I Crawl Through It and Zeroes


For Review:What Lola Wants – Hachette
The Taming of Malcom Grant (The MacGregors: Highland Heirs #4) by Paula Quinn - Hachette

I’m looking forward to Tonight the Streets Our Are Own the most – I loved Sales debut, This Song Will Change Your Life. I’ll probably read Everything, Everything first since it’s out now & has great reviews. Why do I even have Mr. Puffball??? O_O lol and Zeroes is pretty big – I get intimidated by big books so I’m betting that’s the one, if any, that will fall through the cracks this month.

*Psst -  I also have a great (international) giveaway going on for the month – The September Pick Your Book Giveaway

What’s on your TBR this month?

  2. I haven't actually read any of these, but I've heard wonderful things about Dumplin' and Everything, everything. I have both and I'll be reading them really soon. Happy reading, Karen!

  3. I loved Dumplin' except for the romance. I may try Zeroes -- let me know when you're reading that one!

    1. I just read your review for Dumplin. *frowny face* I'm going to angry aren't I? lol

      Maybe we can read Zeroes together. I get so impatient with longer books.

  4. I can help you with Zeroes - don't be shy, just ask ;P.
    Looking forward to hear your thoughts on it and ICTI.

    1. I start drifting off with longer books lol

      Luckily, I read really fast so I've already gotten through 3 so far and manage to get in *fun* books as well.

      This month and November just happen to be heavy BEA book months.

    1. I liked Everything, Everything more than you did but I did have a few issues with it.

      I love my gargoyle's! I have bookends too and a few in the yard.

  9. I love how you've only allowed yourself 2 review books at a time:) I'm trying very hard to limit myself as well...I've not been quite as successful as you!

    1. That's been working really well for me. I feel less pressure but still allow myself a few treats.

    1. I didn't know she had another book. I'm reading Dumplin this week I think.

    2. You have to keep me posted on whether or not you like it. I didn't like her side effects books , but this one I loved.

      Delete
  13. That sounds very manageable! I've never even heard of a lot of these books. Which is good. I'm trying not to hoard. Good job on limiting yourself on the review books as well. I love not reviewing requests!

    1. Most of them are BEA books. Yeah - the less review books - the less pressure!

  14. I see in the pic you have "Everything Everything." I just picked this up at Target yesterday. It sounded like an interesting story. I'm not sure when I'll get to it though.
