2016 TBR Update #8

So it's been a (long) while since I've done one of these updates, but I'm going to try and do them on Mondays on a regular basis. Not only so you can stay up to date on my reading challenges, but also my TBR progress for the months.

So my May TBR has 18 official books. Out of those, I have completed 1 this week.
  • Illusionarium by Heather Dixon (3/5 strawberries)
I have 15 left to read:
  • Calamity by Brandon Sanderson
  • Daughter of Dusk by Livia Blackburne
  • Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong
  • A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
  • Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
  • The Golden Yarn by Cornelia Funke
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling
  • Hopper's Destiny by Lisa Fiedler
  • Ignite by Sara B. Larson
  • Palace of Mirrors by Margaret Peterson Haddix
  • Raging Sea by Michael Buckley
  • Yellow Brick War by Danielle Paige
  • Curio by Evangeline Denmark
  • Monstrous by MarcyKate Connolly
  • Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
I have also read:

I am currently reading 3 books:
  • A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
  • Yellow Brick War by Danielle Paige
  • New Moon by Stephanie Meyer
I have caught up on 0 series, and I have started 0 new series/trilogies/duologies.

So I sort of failed in last year's all-year-round challenge, but this year I'm doing another one just because I can! And I'm doing the 2016 Monthly Keyword Reading Challenge. Click the link to see detailed rules, but essentially each month there are a set of keywords, and I have to choose a book that adheres to one of those keywords in the title. For me, I'm going to try and select more than one keyword, because I like a challenge.

This month's keywords are: 
Cure, Trial, Family, Key, Thief, Bend
()


JUN: Moon, In, Only, Whisper, Sleep, Trap

JUL: Rose, Sun, Clock, Day, Angel, Unto

AUG: Prince, Boy, Glass, Heart, Lost, Now

SEP: Wind, Color, Touch, At, How, Sweet

OCT: Rock, Ghost, Fall, Away, Sky, Storm

NOV: Dream, Holiday, And, Of, Dawn, Beautiful

DEC: End, Promise, Everlasting, Ice, Snow, My

And because I feel like stressing myself out, I'm taking on a second reading challenge. The A-Z Reading Challenge. It's very simple: I have to read a book that begins with a letter from the alphabet, until I've gone through the entire alphabet! So this is my lineup!

C: Castle in the Air - Diana Wynne Jones
D: Daughter of Dusk - Livia Blackburne
E: Empire of Night - Kelley Armstrong
F: Firelight - Kazu Kibuishi

  1. What did you think of Illusionarium? I remember it had great ideas but fell a little flat for me.

    1. I loved the whole concept and the characters. But I did feel like there were things that didn't connect. For once, I was lamenting the fact that it was a stand-alone.
