January #startonyourshelfathon Update

February 4, 2020

Where has this year gone, it’s February already which I just can’t even believe. February brings a big change in my personal life; I am leaving my job due to various reasons. This is scary but interesting overall and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

#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 6 out of 10 books I read in January.

  1. Highway Bodies by Alison Evans
  2. Tweet Cute by Emma Lord
  3. Star Girl by Jerry Spinelli
  4. The Daughter of Victory Lights by Kerri Turner
  5. Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller
  6. The Space Between Lost and Found by Sandy Stark-McGinnis

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

Can you guess which is the red star and which is the light blue star? Well, when we discovered Highway Bodies up in the sky the star shifted into a brilliant red tone, this is definitely a favourite of mine. It has taken us years to find Star Girl, but there she is in the beautiful light blue. Star Girl has definitely been on my TBR for over 10 years and I have dragged this unread book through multiple moves.
