November-February Reading Pile + Reader's Bundle #Giveaway (INT)

So it's been a month since we arrived in Poland and I've been trying to read as much as possible! I realized, I am really bad at sticking to my TBR list. Like, really, really bad. It takes a conscious effort on my part to not stray away from *the path*.

Also, I have since signed up for a couple new tours, so I added a bunch of books to my pile. Not many, just a couple, but still!

Anyway, here's an update on my progress...

Books I have planned to read:

Books I have already read:

Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley (3/5 stars)
Revival by Stephen King (5/5 stars)
The White Plague by James Abel (3/5 stars)
The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma (5/5)
Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay (5/5)
The Witch of Painted Sorrows by M.J. Rose (4/5)

From outside of the list:

The Fog Diver by Joel Ross (4/5 stars)
The Dragons at Crumbling Castle by Terry Pratchett (4/5 stars)
Little White Lies by Katie Dale (4/5)
A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas (4/5)

Currently Reading:

There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake
Audacity by Melanie Crowder


Read 6 out of 24 books + 4 outside of the list


Because I enjoyed all the books I've read so far, and because many of them are hot 2015 releases, and also because I am having so much fun reading and eating European chocolate and drinking delicious coffees and teas and using European cosmetics, I decided to put together a Reader's Bundle giveaway - give you some love and share some of my favorite European things! (am I awesome or what?!)
