Hands up who remembers when I last did a book haul? So much for it being a monthly thing, right? It’s been so long that I know there are so many books unaccounted for, but they’ll just have to wait another while yet. In September I was on a quite long book ban, and it extended into October a bit. So, it makes sense to mark my return to book hauling with a November pick, as that was when I did most of the damage.
Much as I love fiction, I do also love a little bit of non fiction from time to time. I admit, most of the non fiction books I read tend to be celebrity autobiographies. Even then, a lot of them are comedians. I’m not saying I have form, but yeah, I have form.
Some of these are a little based on the writer’s stand up routines, so you do need to keep in mind that if you’ve seen their shows it’s going to be more than a little familiar. If you’ve got a funny bone, you’ll really love these.
Back again with the trying to cull my TBR. This challenge was created by Lia over at Lost In A Story and the rules are pretty straightforward.
All you need to do is:
- Go to your Goodreads TBR shelf
- List it in ascending order.
- Pick the first five (or ten if you feel adventurous)
- Decide whether to keep the book on your TBR or pull an Elsa and Let It Go.
Challenge criteria: A book published before you were born. (This book was published in 1986 and I was born in 1992.)
Kristy thinks the Baby-sitters Club is a great idea. She and her friends Claudia, Stacey, and Mary Anne all love taking care of kids. A club will give them the chance to have lots of fun – and make tons of money.
This book did not fit any of my challenge criteria.
(Disclaimer: I was sent this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This has in no way affected my opinion of the book, nor the outcome of the review.)
Amy’s husband Hugh isn’t really leaving her.
At least, that’s what he promises. He is just taking a break – from their marriage, their children and, most of all, from their life together. For six-months Hugh will lose himself in south-east Asia, and there is nothing Amy can say or do about it.
