February #startonyourshelfathon Update

March 3, 2020

Suddenly like a flash, we are in March, and that means an update on my #startonyourshelfathon challenge. February was a big month for me, I finished at work and am now funemployed. I also had a lot of ARC’s to read in February so that definitely affected my ability to read as much for this challenge. Luckily one of the ARCs qualified for #startonyourshelfathon, so YAY!

#startonyourshelfathon is run by The Quiet Pond and is a yearlong readathon focusing on reading the books on our shelves. At the start of this, I had 180 books on my TBR and I would really like to knock that down. Before we head into this month’s additions to the star chart I wanted to walk through what the stars mean.

Yellow is a book I read from my shelf.
Light Blue is a book that fulfilled my goal of the book that has been on my TBR the longest.
Red is a favorite book from my shelf.

My Process:

So how I have deemed a book fits in this readathon is I owned it prior to 2020 start. I am using owned in a loose way meaning that I physically own it, I own it through Audible, I have borrowed it from the library, or it was saved to my Scribd library before the 1st of January 2020. This leaves me with 4 out of 13 books I read in January.

  1. Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin
  2. Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
  3. Princess Princess Ever After by Katie O’Neill
  4. Toby Alone by Timothée de Fombelle (DNF’d)

So without any further ado, here are the stars Castor and I discovered this month!

That light blue star wasn’t sure it was going to show but when I decided to pass Toby Alone on to someone else, freeing up space on my shelf it shone brightly. It took a while for Foul is Fair to turn red but in the end, it is a new favorite of mine, it has so much to love! As for the other two, they have been on my TBR for just over a year and I’m glad to have ticked them off the list.

Are you participating in #startonyourshelfathon? It’s not too late to join!
