Ah, that dreaded to-be-read
mountain pile… It’s ever growing. I imposed a book buying ban on myself last year. Which I fully intended to carry on to this year. But there’s just something about the dark winter days that… well… makes me buy… a few books. *cough*
Anyway. In 2013 I participated in the TBR Pile Challenge. You can see my list here. I failed miserably and did not read a single book from the list, and only just finished Rebecca last week (a year late). That’s something, at least? The problem is that I have to be in the right mood for a book, which is why challenges with set titles rarely seem to work for me (but that’s why they’re called challenges I suppose haha).
Back to my TBR pile. I figured I need a more effective way to tackle it. Instead of forcing myself through a self-imposed list, I have created a shortlist of books on Goodreads that will be my guide. Books that I feel like reading sometime soon, a list that makes picking the next read slightly easier. This list will be ever changing and it’s very likely I will pick up books that are not on this list. But having a list like this feels good!
Here is my shortlist:
So do you have a list of books that you want to read soon? 🙂
