After finishing my TBR Jar Draw for October in record time I decided to make a new draw from the jar. I am very pleased with having read my last book for the TBR Jar Draw and having an opportunity to maybe even read two books for this challenge in one month!
A book for October TBR Jar Draw was a kindle freebie The Frog Prince by Elle Lothlorien. I do believe that the digital format helped with faster reading since I’ve lately been reading a bit more digital books. I’ve made a short review and you can read my thoughts on this book HERE.
The two draws I have not read are going back in the jar:
# Belladonna (Ephemera #2) by Anne Bishop
# The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu
My three new TBR Jar draws are as follows:
1 # Wait Till Your Vampire Gets Home (Broken Heart #4) by Michele Bardsley
This book was one of the presents my boyfriend brought back for me from his business trip in Nairobi, Kenya. I’ve never read anything from this author before and haven’t even heard of this book series. The title was an inside joke of ours since he was a really pale Caucasian man in the heart of Africa. While I was looking at the book on my bookshelf I realized it is still wrapped in foil cover from the store. I consider this book as a very dear present with meaning and haven’t really put it at the top of my reading list at the moment.
2 # Rosemary and Rue (October Daye #1) by Seanan McGuire
This is the second time I’ve pulled this book out from the jar. The first time I pulled it out was earlier this year in May. What makes me hesitant on reading this book is the fact that it is the first book of the series of which I own only the first book. It is an excuse I use that in case I like the book I would have to go and order the next books from the series and then I would have to wait for them to arrive and then that would be buying new books instead of reading those I already own….excuses…excuses…
3 # Half a King (Shattered Sea, #1) by Joe Abercrombie
This is another first book of the series I have not started reading. I remember my boyfriend enjoying reading it a great deal. I own a hardcover copy of a very beautiful British edition. In fact I like the cover and binding so much I’ve decided to get the whole trilogy and make a shelfporn set I could enjoy looking at! As for why I haven’t read it until now it goes the same excuse as for the previous book. I actually expect to like the book quite a bit and funding for the purchase other two books in the trilogy in the exact beautiful hardcover edition is not something I can afford right now…
I am kinda leaning toward the Half a King book even with all the excuses I mentioned above. I will make my choice as soon as I finish with the digital books reading streak I am currently on.
