TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads! Each week she proposes a question to her followers. 

This week's question:  

To-Be-Read's: How big is your pile? Which book keeps getting pushed down the stack, but you keep meaning to read it?

My TBR pile has too many books on it that I can even begin to think how many books are waiting to be read. I am a compulsive book buyer and purchase way too many books - I feel like I justify it because I don't buy much else (except for the necessities). I love the idea of have my own home library and over the past 15 years it has grown exponentially - which means my TBR pile has too. 

Some books that keep moving down, sown, down to the bottom of my pile are Harry Potter books 1-4. I'm almost finished with books one - I may have about 40 pages left, but I just can;t manage to finish it. I worked at bookstore in 2003 and that is when I acquired them, but now 8 years later I still haven't read them. This is probably what I am most embarrassed about because I know that so many people love them, I mean hello, they are a world-wide phenomenon. Still I've almost resigned to the fact that it is just not going to happen. Until then they remain on my TBR pile (status always changing).

Here's just a small portion of my TBR pile. Any suggestions on which I should read next?



  1. You can't go wrong with Divergent. I could reread that book. I set a goal this month to read ten books to knock down that TBR pile. That's a lot of books for me, but making goals help. Good luck with the TBR pile :)

  2. I have Shiver and Divergent on my TBR list, too. I keep meaning to read them...

  3. I am loving all the photos of the TBR piles!!

    I have Shiver and Divergent both on my list, as well as a few others I see in there :D

  4. My TBR pile is not that big right now but it keeps getting bigger. I try to take books from it in order of when I acquired them, so that the older books don't keep sinking towards the bottom but I generally fail at that because there's always several bright, shiny and new books that catch my eye and throw the whole system out of whack.

  5. I really enjoyed "If I stay" and "where she went". They are a 2 part series. I also think you should read "Anatomy of a boyfriend". :-)

  6. Kayla - Thanks for stopping by. What is so funny is that I have read Where She Went and Anatomy of a Boyfriend. They are the only 2 in the picture (which was taken a few weeks ago) that I have read.

    Jen, Amanda, & Jac - pretty sure that I'll be reading Divergent during the read-a-thon. At least I plan to (always planning to read something)

    Cathy - the new books always get me in trouble too!

    Thanks to all for stopping by!
