#TackleTBR Read-a-thon – Goals & Updates

My favorite fortnight-long read-a-thon is back! The reasons I love it are because it is long enough to not be stressful and yet short enough to not make you lazy. This year, too, I am focusing on the galleys, with a few backlist books thrown in.

Now, I’m usually a mood reader so this is mostly a tentative TBR. I may tweak it as I read further, but here’s it is, for now:

Bright Smoke, Cold Fire (Untitled, #1) A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic, #2) Lions in the Garden (The Uprising #1) A Forest of Wolves (The Uprising, #2) Gamescape: Overworld (Nova Project #1)

Naming the Stars Necrotech A New Darkness (Starblade Chronicles, #1) The Dark Army (Starblade Chronicles, #2) The Lying Planet

Expect some reviews soon!

Oh, and all updates will be here in this master pinned post, so as not to spam people with daily updates. If you are also joining the readathon, drop a comment for me to check out your challenge. We can always gush over books together, or just generally discuss how its going!
