Tackling the TBR Week 43: Nov 15 - Nov 21, 2021


I am now in year three of Tackling the TBR. Slowly but surely I have made big strides in getting by TBR under control. When I first started in 2019, my TBR was topping out at over 5,000 books. I don't know that I will ever get below 500, but a #BookDragon can dream!

I will be posting on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and the last day of the month. Feel free to join in if you'd like!

Any of these catch your eye? Have you already read any? Let me know!

Happy Reading!


  1. I see Local Girl Missing pop up here and there. Hope you liked the Lapenas. I'm trying to remember which of those I liked better. Probably An Unwanted Guest. I think I had a few issues with Someone but it's been a while...

    Curious how Vikings will turn out.

    1. I really like Lapena's books and am excited for her latest. Hopefully I will have it by the weekend. Local Girl Missing was a decent read, though not my favorite. But by far, not the worst thriller I have read. It does, however, stretch the 'unreliable marrator' thing a bit thin for my taste.

    2. I should just read all the Lapena's. She's like Lisa Jewell for me- I loved Girls in the Garden and started reading everything by Jewell and while they were good, none were as good as that one. Similar to McManus haha although I find I'm strangely fond of The Cousins- I think I like that one more than a lot of people did. But back to Lapena- I really liked Guest the more I think about it and that was the first one I read. I need to read the rest of hers I suppose...

    3. Not a Happy Family has just come in for me at the library, so I will be getting it tomorrow and will have read all of her work then. I didn't hate The Cousins, I liked it and was not expecting the twist involving their grandma. You'll Be the Death of Me, on the other hand...we need to discuss ASAP.

      Do you think I would like Lisa Jewell?

    4. I do, but start with The Girls in the Garden. Danggggg
