Not so great week for the TBR after all. Read a couple of books, nothing too expressive and bought way to much since last update. But from September on I will read only what I buy or request. I’ve been buried in books for review and I don’t have time to read them all anymore, plus I need to read for myself for awhile and enjoy finding new series.

        This week I added several books to the TBR but also read a lot during another #boutofbooks. These read-a-thons are great because they give me a push to read more than ever and it usually help my TBR. Also discovered some great Young Adult series this month that got me hooked bad.

                    The last time I’ve done a TBR Reduction I remember feeling bad about all my new addictions and made myself a book ban. It lasted for about a month and I’m actually happy that in the end I only bought 8 books.

                      Showcase Sunday and Operation TBR Reduction-Week Seven

                       

                      It has been awhile since I talk about the books received, so this is a new meme that I decided to join and I’ll try to post every Sunday about my new eBooks. You can find more information’s clicking on the image, it will take directly to the explanation post or visiting Books, Biscuits & Tea. All the book covers are links to the GoodReads pages.
                      It has been weeks since I visited NetGalley and this time I requested a huge pile. And I’m also considering a buying ban until the end of July.

                      Book Tour:

                      Supernaturally Kissed (Frostbite, #1)Demonically Tempted (Frostbite #2)

                      Operation TBR Reduction Button

                      I have a hard time reading everything that I’ve bought on the last few years and now seams like a good time to read more of some great series that I keep hearing great things about and since I bought didn’t even touched. Plus a huge list from Netgalley.

                      The Details:
                      *Everyone is invited to participate. Bloggers can grab my button and make a post declaring yourself part of the project. Non-bloggers can leave comments on update posts or even have a shelf on GoodReads or another book networking site for books read for the Operation:TBR Reduction.
                      *I will start May 1st. If you decide to participate it is not required that you do so every month. While I am deadly serious about this, it doesn’t have to be for you! :)
                      *Sign up using the linky below and I’ll come and cheer you on.
                      *To be clear this is not a book buying ban.

                      Reads last week:

                      Started the Dark Hunter last week and read a few novellas. Midnight Pleasure contain several short stories but I only read one and he’s back on the reading pile for later.

                      The Beginning (Acheron; Dark-Hunter, #0.1)Dragonswan (Dark-Hunter, #0.2; Were-Hunter, #1)Night Pleasures (Dark-Hunter, #1)Night Embrace (Dark-Hunter, #2)Midnight Pleasures (Includes: Dark-Hunter, #2.1; Wild Wulfs of London, #1)

                      Week ends and I now have on my shelves:

                      • To Read: 710
                      • Freebies:  40
                      • Released 2012: 93
                      • Requested Review: 113
                      • To Read in Portuguese: 14

                      I’m officially on a book buying ban and will only buy another book after my requested review pile shows less than 100 books. I’m way behind on the NetGalley reviews.
