All the books I need to read!

Hey everyone,

It would probably be fair to say that the following blog post is fairly self-indulgent, and could therefore be of no interest to anyone else in the world. It is quite simply a list of all the books I own but still to read, commonly referred to as a To-Be-Read pile or TBR for short. As some of you may know from having read previous posts on this blog I have banned myself from buying a new book until my TBR pile is destroyed. That means I haven’t brought a book  since the 15th April 2015, almost a month and half!

For that reason alone I’m fairly proud of myself and just think of all the money I’ve saved to spend on future books! Now that I am below fifty books on my TBR pile I thought it would be a good idea to create a list, mainly so that future me can look back with a sense of pride and achievement at reading all those books... Without indulging in new ones.

Also to make this list more interesting you we’re gonna split it into seven categories, starting with... Drumroll please...

I feel this category needs explantation, basically it’s all the books that I didn’t want to read any more and will therefore dispose of from my To Be Read Pile. Cause life is too short!

  • His to Command: The Housekeeper Anthology
  • Pride of the Peacock by Victoria Holt

So I have a lot of historical romances to read, honestly didn’t expect one genre to dominate quite so much... Of course does that mean I like that genre the most or the least?

Happy reading and see you next time!
