Summer TBR Wipeout 2018: Update #1


I can’t believe we’ve already made it to the first update post of the Summer TBR Wipeout Challenge hosted by The Candid Cover, but here we are!  I don’t know if I’ll get through all 15 books that were on my tentative TBR for this challenge, but I’m pretty pleased with my progress so far.  I’m especially thrilled to have finished another George R.R. Martin book as well as the final book in the Grishaverse trilogy.  Overall, I managed to 6 books for this first update (5 from my original TBR + 1 library book that became available sooner that I expected it to) and I also made a good start on a 7th book, In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware. Go me!  LOL!  Anyway, here are all of the books I’ve read so far and what books I’m hoping to get to next.  4 of those are from my original TBR and then I added Not the Girls You’re Looking For, another library book that became available sooner than anticipated.  Wish me luck!







I hope everyone who is taking part in the challenge is getting a lot of reading done!

    Congrats, you’re doing a great job! And those Game of Thrones books are SO LONG, so that’s amazing. I really hope to read The Mermaid soon, and I want to read In a Dark Dark Wood and The Last Time I Lied.

      Letters to the Lost was so amazing! If you haven’t read it yet, More Than We Can Tell is also great and focuses on Rev.

    It looks like you are making some fantastic progress, especially with a huge George R.R. Martin in there! I hope you continue doing so well (and even if you don’t read as many, you’re still doing awesome!). The only one I’ve read out of all of these is The Mermaid, which I really enjoyed and I hope you do as well.

    6 books is awesome! I am doing alright with my TBR wipeout. I almost strayed today, but the challenge actually kept me on track.

      I did really well at staying on track for the first week but then a couple of library books that I had on hold became available sooner than I was expecting. Back on track now though.
