What is on your TBR list?

Do you have a massive “to be read” pile? I was starting to think that mine was under control, but then I noticed that my “want to read” list on GoodReads is 47 books long.

47 books!

Here is a selection of books that I want to read, but haven’t yet got around to…

  1. Sometimes I wish I was immortal. I want to read EVERYTHING.

    If your pile is out of control, then mine is beyond saving (152) 😛

  4. Ha! Mine is about the same if not more. I keep finding awesome novels I want to delve into and add them to wishlists. Someday I’ll find the money to start purchasing some of them. Some day.


  5. It doesn’t help me that people keep publishing and I keep buying. I’m still working towards reading the classics such as all the Bronte books

    Oh god I would kill to have mine be 47 books. Mine is about 400 books!

  7. The reading pile does have a habit of growing out of control. Maybe it is a matter of our eyes being more ambitious than our time management skills.


  8. My TBR list is huge, but the actual books on the shelf aren’t so many right now. Thank God for Amazon Wish lists!

    Eek! I have 120!! My list includes ‘The Descent (The Taker #3)’ by Alma Katsu, ‘The Perks of being a Wallflower’ by Stephen Chbosky, and ‘The Forgotten Crown (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #3)’ by Julie Kagawa. I also have ‘Unwind’ on my list!! 🙂 So many beautiful books, so little time 😉

    I have a pile next to my bed of about a hundred, and then a Goodreads ‘want to read’ list of more than a hundred on top of that…

  11. I don’t have a TBR….I just grab something from my wanderings that I have remembered I have wanted to read and read it. For me too much anxiety goes along with making lists for things to read. I have enough pressures with other “HAVE TO DO” thoughts rolling around in my.mind. I don’t ever want reading to be a thing I must be doing ..I just wanna do it like when I was a kid.

    Current TBR list number is 1379. I will die with a pile of books I’ve been wanting to read, sitting there beside me. I love it! I need a time turner like Hermione had in Harry Potter. So many books, so little time.

  13. Mine’s 878 and that’s only on Goodreads *laugh* I did just complete two books on my “to-read” list: “Deep: Freediving, Renegade Science, and What the Ocean Tells Us about Ourselves” by James Nestor, and “The Extreme Life of the Sea” by Stephen R. Palumbi and Anthony R Palumbi. “Deep” was actually great, as it had the side perk of giving me tips on underwater living for a book(s) I’m working on….gotta love serendipity 🙂

    I must confess my Goodreads want to read list is over 800, which include a couple of hundred I own. I’m trying to work my way through as many of the books on my shelf before my birthday in November because I’ll be getting a lot more books then.


  15. Fever is great! But be warned, you will want to read the whole series. At least they’re all available right now. I have so many books I want to read right now, especially because it’s Halloween season, and I’m receiving lots of scary stories for review consideration. I’ve always been a scary story fan, along with some fantasy and sci-fi, when done well. Ditto for dystopian and survival stories.

    I have a pile next to my bed also; actually two piles, and then there are some in my bookcase in my bedroom and probably a few upstairs as well. And I keep adding to them. Sigh!

    My Goodreads TBR is currently at 1,346, a lot of which are the first books in a series. So essentially I will never read everything I want to.

    Oh jeez, my Goodreads TBR shelf currently exceeds 1,000, possibly 2k. I don’t even know the exact number off the top of my head.:)


  19. dustomundo says:

    BTW, Jodie, I had no idea that you’re a GR author. I’ll check out your page!


  20. You just gave me a great idea! I’ve seen so many books out there but I never write them down. Now I don’t remember them lol…


  21. I feel you. My Goodreads list is pushing 100 and I’m trying to keep it in check. But then there’s the library and the book store and Amazon. Such temptation!

  26. Aye, my TBR list is HUGE too. Ive seen a lot of people add ThenUnbecoming of Mara Dyer to theur lists this fall. By the way, I nominated you for the Sisterhood of the Woman Blogger Award! http://wp.me/p4MMvX-7i

    I just posted about my Summer Reading Project, which was to read every book on my TBR list! I vowed not to acquire another book until I cleared the pile. (Spoiler: I failed.) Currently I have The Bone Clocks, Bad Feminist, and One Hundred Years of Solitude on the pile, among others.

    That’s not so bad. My “to read” Goodreads pile is 236 books long and growing! I’m a slow reader. 😦
