Reading With Chuckles


I have renamed my TBR Reading Challenge and changed it back to Reading with Chuckles as it sounds better, especially at times when I have no specific challenge running. So this is where I'll share what I read and abandoned each week, and I'll give the odd update on the state of my poor TBR! It does suffer at times...! The link under the book takes you to the Goodreads page for that book so you can decide whether to read it, and see my reviews when they are posted.


This was Urban Fantasy Week at The Book Cave and it was very successful in attacking the tbr! I reread two books which made me decide not to continue with the series, so that cut about eight unread books off the tbr, I finished one which was a good read and abandoned another eight. Plus, I deleted about six books I was no longer interested in reading. Success! This week, I'm thinking about Horror Week as that opens up the opportunity for all kinds of human monsters and beasties! It also lets me finish the UF book I started today.

  1. Omg, those days when you have more books abandoned than read xD Sometimes it's difficult to stick to a book, especially when it's very sub-par.

    1. Yeah I definitely find that a problem! I just can't continue with something I'm not enjoying! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. It would get the rest of my horror shelf read at last so it sounds like a plan. Might need a YA week soon as well...

  3. Oh deleting books. It's so right and so wrong at the same time.

    1. Yeah I bet some people are shuddering at the thought of all my abandoned and deleted books! Still, even if I haven't liked the book, it is off the tbr. It's a win-win situation!

  4. To be fair Chuckles you did get quite a lot off your TBR list (in my eyes lol) so many it's a good thing you didn't like the series the second time around? Whoop for DNF! :D x

    1. Yeah I'm always happy to reduce the tbr! I liked the first Sierra Dean book but the second was soooo slow to get into the story and it was too much relationship angst and not enough action for me. But as you say, the reduced tbr is the main bonus!

  5. Uhoh, so many abandoned! That's sort of a relief when it means getting a lot off your list, but it is disappointing.

    1. Yeah I agree-you WANT to find that great new book or series! Still at least the down side has its benefits too!
