The Week in Review:  “Tackling My TBR” (September 13th-19th)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. This meme gives bloggers a chance to share with readers what we bought, borrowed, swapped, won or received for review each week. I also decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Life Outside the ‘Net

This week has been pretty busy. So busy that I didn’t work out like I usually do, and ended up injured on my Saturday run. Instead of running 9 miles as planned, I only was able to do 5 miles. Not too bad, but was a painful lesson to learn. Why was my week so busy? Well, this week was “Back-to-School” night at work, and I had lots of meetings. Plus, I still have my Japanese class, and needed to study for my first quiz. Not sure how well I did on it, but I guess I’ll find out on Monday. One thing I did realize is that no matter what, I’ve been doing the bare minimum, and need to actually study more. Here’s to a less stressful week next week!

Tackle Your TBR Update


Titles of finished books:
  • Lace Up (Pretty Smart Girls) by Shae Ross
  • The Summer Marked (The Winter People) by Rebekah L. Purdy

Total number of finished books: 2

Total number of pages read: 563
I didn’t read as many books as I hoped this week. My initial goal was to read three books, but I didn’t begin my third book until Saturday, so maybe I’ll get in a fourth next week. Still I feel pretty hopeful that I can reach my reading goal of 6 books by the 28th.

  1. Your book haul is awesome, Tiffany! I loved Talon, which is the only one I’m familiar with, but the other books look great as well.
    I hope you’ll find more time to study Japanese next week! That’s a language I’d love to learn – I’m a little afraid of the a kanji, though, it feels like only artistic people could master that.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

      I’m glad you enjoyed Talon. I’ve heard mixed reviews, but it seems like it would be something I’d like.

      Thanks, I plan to devote more time to studying. If you’re interested, you should definitely check it out. Don’t worry! They won’t teach you Kanji right off the bat. I’m currently learning to write in Hiragana. It’s a lot easier.

      Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week 😉

    The only one I know is Talon, because I’ve got it too – though haven’t read it yet 🙂 Enjoy your new books !

  3. Sorry you ended up getting hurt. I am told that the training and stretching is very important for runners. The Lost Soul of Lord Badewyn looks good…awesome haul! Hope your leg heals quickly!

      Thanks! My coach told me to soak in a tub of ice water, but I think I’ll try epsom salt first, and then I’ll try ice if that doesn’t work. Anything I can do to keep from having to get into tub of ice. I’m excited to read Lord Badewyn. I read the second book in the series, and really enjoyed it.

  4. I have my eye on The Lost Soul of Lord Badewyn. I love the cover! I hope your injury heals quickly. There are few things as frustrating as injuring yourself and not being able to work out like you’re accustomed to.

    Have a great week!

    • @Angelized_1st

      That’s very true! Every time I try to train I end up injured. This time I want to keep going, so I need to take better care of myself. If you’re interested in Lord Badewyn, you should probably check out the first book in the series. Have you read it? I haven’t. I began with the second book. It was pretty interesting. Thanks for stopping by!

    • @Angelized_1st

      Thanks for asking. It’s still going. I think I need to make a doctor’s appointment. In the meantime, I’m going to soak my muscles, and see if that helps. Have a great week!

    • @Angelized_1st

      Japanese isn’t as hard to learn as you’d think. Sadly, I’ve been neglecting it, so I’m having difficulty. I plan to do better this week, so hopefully I will improve going forward. Thanks for the well wishes 🙂
