Hello my name is Bec and I have 209 books on my TBR pile. My actual, IRL TBR pile
Most of these books have been sitting there for over 12 months because I am a terrible person who had such little time last year. (And the time I did have was spent playing video games because I just did). It’s all starting to make me feel rather guilty. How could I neglect so many books, some of which are really hyped!
With any luck, I should get around to knocking a decent amount of these books off the TBR this year. Either through unhauling (unlikely because I have a book hoarding problem) or actually reading. I have more time at the moment, still not having a job, so here’s hoping I can knock some off the pile!
There are so many that I want to get to, it’s hard to figure out any sort of order to read them in. But there are some that I’m drawn to more than others (due to either mood or guilt of having them sit there so long ha)
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
I won this book in a giveaway and was super excited because I’d heard so many amazing things about this series! It’s a fantasy that I’m pretty sure I’m going to love but the hype does scare me a little.
The Falconer Trilogy books #2 & #3 by Elizabeth May
This wasn’t on my TBR for that long as I only recently obtained this trilogy (thanks to Alise!) but I’m desperate to read it. THE FALCONER ended on such a cliffhanger, and I’ve been waiting years to finally get the chance to read the sequels. It’s right on the top of my TBR.
The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1) by Rick Riordan
This is one of the books I feel most guilty about. I received this for review when it first came out, but didn’t pick it up because I hadn’t read Blood of Olympus yet. I still haven’t read Blood of Olympus, and so haven’t picked up Magnus Chase. I really need to get my act together.
Shadow Scale (Seraphina #2) by Rachel Hartman
SERAPHINA was a surprise 5 star read for me years ago and I remember being ecstatic when a sequel was released. I remember loving the characters and the take on dragons. I bought it immediately… and left it to sit on my shelf.
End of Days (Penryn and the End of Days #3) by Susan Ee
This is the last book in a trilogy I’ve really enjoyed. WHY HAVEN’T I PICKED IT UP YET??? At first it was because I was scared, and then it had been so long since I’d read the first two books that I forgot many things.
These are only the tip of the ice berg. I have so many books that have been on my TBR for years, a lot of them sequels to books I read a long time ago. I have a problem.
