Bout of Books Read-a-Thon: Mini Challenge: TBR Lists and Book Spine Poetry

August 21, 2013

Bout of Books

It is day three of Bout of Book Read-a-Thon. 

TBR Lists:
Today's mini challenge is hosted by Musings of a Bookshop Girl.

The Questions

1.  Which 5 books are at the top of your TBR pile at this moment?

2.  If I gave you a wad of cash and sent you into a bookshop right now, which 5 books would you buy to add to the stack?

Let me start off by sating that my TBR is always changing. So, what I say today, could be different than last week or next week.

1.  1.) The Red Siren by MaryLu Tyndall, 2.) Song of War by Cliff Graham, 3.) Submerged by Dani Pettrey, 4.) Wings of a Dream by Anne Mateer, 5.) To Win Her Heart by Karen Witemeyer

2. 1.) Rules of Murder by Julianna Deering, 2.) Mortal by Ted Dekker & Tosca Lee, 3.) Head in the Clouds by Karen Witemeyer, 4.) The Preacher's Bride by Jody Hedlund, 5.) Claudia: Wife of Pontius Pilate by Diana Wallis Taylor

 Once I get some more books, the top of my TBR is likely to switch around, but for the time being, I think those are my top 5.

Book Spine Poetry:
This challenge is hosted by Such a Novel Idea.

To stick with the TBR theme, I used some books that are on my TBR shelf.

One True Love, Wings of a Dream
Deep Harbor
Shattered, From a Distance
A Hope Undaunted, To Win Her Heart

I love book spine poetry! Such a fun way to share books.


  1. Lovely poem, Kate!

    Thanks for participating in the challenge and good luck!

  2. Alright! You've got some great ones here, Kate. Love Dani's books (have you read any of hers before?) and Julianna's new series is off to a smashing beginning. :)

  3. Thanks Jessica and thanks for stopping by! :-)

  4. I haven't read any of Dani's books yet, Rissi. I'm expecting Submerged this week and will dive into that when I get it. :-) I'm excited to read her books. I just don't want to read them out of order.

    That's great to hear!

  5. Thanks for entering the TBR Challenge! Sorry it's taking a while to get round everyone - I lost a day yesterday when some new painkillers laid me out, oops - but GOOD LUCK and happy reading for the rest of this week! :)

  6. Hi Ellie, no worries. I hope the painkillers helped you out! Thanks! Hope you feel better soon and happy reading to you. :-)


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a word, leave a line, I would love to hear what you have to say.
