I've seen a couple of people doing a monthly round-up of books and thought 'hey, why the hell not!', so here goes:
Books started: 16 (including one I'm currently reading)
Books finished: 9
Books not finished: 6
Genre breakdown: of the books I finished, 4 would be considered science fiction, 1 was urban fantasy, 3 are fantasy and 1 was historical fiction.
What progress made on Mount TBR? Of the 9 books I finished last month, 7 had been on my 'to read' list (or indeed my actual bookshelves) for a while, so I think I made a little dent. Of the books I didn't finish, 3 had been on the bookshelf and the other 3 were library books I picked up 'on spec' (with a very low degree of success, apparently).
Book of the month: No dispute, definitely The Goblin Emperor.
