I think pretty much any bookworm knows the concept of the TBR pile. For those of you who don’t however, here’s a small description of a TBR pile:
- All the books still To Be Read
- Which is basically a never-ending growing pile
- With ginormous proportions
- Which can never, ever be completely conquered
- Even though we will always keep trying
- And don’t always mind that it’s there anyway (to be fair, I’d rather know that there are tons of books still out there for me to read, than to know that there are no more books. Anywhere. Because THAT would freak me out)
Given these characteristics, it’s also very possible for books to get lost in this TBR pile. Books that you meant to get to AGES ago. But you didn’t. Because some shiny, new books popped up and demand more attention. Or because the bookworm in question is a serious mood reader (ahem, me) and is just never in the right mood for them. So those poor little books get buried beneath all the other ones and forgotten. Well, maybe not forgotten, but put in the pile ‘I’ll get to you soon, I swear! No really, soon!’
Well, these are some the books I’ve been wanting to get to for AGES
(but will soon, I swear! No really, soon!):
This list is in no particular order, however this one is my biggest shame and highest priority at the moment. I first want to do a Percy Jackson and the Olympians re-read before starting this one so that’s why I keep procrastinating because re-reads take time. Even fun re-reads such as Percy Jackson.
Another one I’ve been procrastinating because it’s a sequel and I. HAVE. FORGOTTEN. EVERYTHING. ABOUT. BOOK. ONE.
This highly acclaimed fantasy series is really a must-read, even though it’s kind of big and intimidating. But since the third book isn’t out yet, I’m telling myself I still have some more time to get started with it.
I actually bought The Orphan Queen a few months ago, so this one is one step closer to being read!
I should really get to this soon, especially with the movie coming out later this year.
I know, I know. Shame on me. This is such a highly praised series and I have no excuse for not reading it yet.
I read the Trylle trilogy by Amanda Hocking almost two years ago and have been wanting to start this series (which is set in the same world) ever since. Buuut, I haven’t.
This sci-fi dystopian book just sounds so special and fun with its’ combination of virtual reality and 80’s pop culture that it really is a must-read.
As a self-acclaimed fantasy fan it’s a shame I haven’t read this series yet. I will soon though, I promise!
I’ve heard some rave reviews about any of Patrick Ness’s book, so I am intrigued. This trilogy especially is one that I’ve been wanting to read for ages, yet I’m never in the right mood for it…
Another classic in the fantasy world that I haven’t read yet. But with the third and final book coming out in November and a movie in development, I think it’s time to get started!
