Rosie's Books

My thoughts on life and reviews on books that are shaping my life. Giving me the opportunity to question, ponder, and answer the big why's, how's, and what if's of my life, those around me, and life itself.

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption - Laura Hillenbrand

I saw the movie a few weeks back and I decided right then and there I had to read the book.

Consider the possibilities...

Keeping track of books in a series. Suggestions?

I come across this problem often, I begin reading a book that is part of a series that has 6 books in total and the last 3 have not been published yet, it will be another 4 years until the last book hits the book stands. I wait and I begin reading another book, it turns out this is part of a trilogy and all books are published, I read the first and second book and 'oh look at that, that book is awesome and cannot wait in the TBR pile any longer, must read now'. Now I am reading/waiting for more books in a series while reading books in a series. I am usually good at keeping track but I am looking for something more systematic. 

 

How do you keep track of books in a series? The ones you read, the ones you are waiting to be published, etc...

I have reached 200 followers!!

I was at 199 for a bit and I was looking forward to the day where I would reach 200, today was that day!!! Thank you for making it possible! It might seem like a small victory but even small victories count so here is a toast to that.

Do you agree?

 

I actually tend to enjoy depressing books as much as I enjoy happy books.
