Is this a blog post, or is it a cry for help?
My to-be-read (or TBR for short) shelf has been growing and expanding into… well, multiple shelves. It starts with a book sale. Then I have my monthly Owlcrate book. This month I opened my Owlcrate and was so excited by the book and thought “yay, I’ll read it after I finish…” and that’s when I realized. If I read in order of books I’ve acquired, that book was going to have some waiting to do.
My TBR has become the overwhelming type for me. I stare at the shelf and can’t decide on a book so ultimately just end up not reading anything after a discouraging perusal of this daunting pile. A few of the books are still queued for the last few days of May’s Readathon, two are buddy reads to complete with pals, and one is an ARC I was sent. I know some readers are going to laugh (or cry) from under their mountains of unread books at what ultimately is a manageable TBR, but it’s overwhelming me so I am here to ask for help!
Here it is. The queue standing between me and buying any more books. I keep seeing books I want, new releases that are on my want-to-read list, but each time I consider one I pause and glance over at this pile of stories guilting me. I want to read all these, I really do! But… where to begin?
That’s what I’m asking everyone. What books from this pile have you read and do you recommend? Help me decide on the order which I’m going to tackle this pile!
