TGIF: To-Be-Read’s

TGIF was a feature at one of my favorite blogs, GReads. It’s a way to recap the week, talk about fun book things, and celebrate the weekend. Each week a bookish question was proposed as a way to get to know fellow bloggers and write about issues we care about.

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

From NetGalley and Eidelweiss:









That Time I Joined the Circus – J. J. Howard
Being Henry David – Cal Armistead
Riptide – Lindsey Scheibe
The Bane – Keary Taylor
Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality – Elizabeth Eulberg
The Nightmare Affair – Mindee Arnett
Diverse Energies – Various authors
If You Could Be Mine – Sara Farizan
Chantress – Amy Butler Greenfield
If You Find Me – Emily Murdoch
The Book of Broken Hearts – Sarah Ockler
Daughters Who Walk This Path – Yejide Kilanko
Andy Squared – Jennifer Lavoie
The Dead and Buried – Kim Harrington
What We Saw At Night – Jacquelyn Mitchard
The Sweetest Dark – Shana Abe
Saving June – Hannah Harrington
You Know What You Have to Do – Bonnie Shimko
Entangled – Nikki Jefford
An Infidel in Paradise – S. J. Laidlaw
Frozen – Mary Casanova
The Shadow Society – Marie Rutkoski

I’ve had Diverse Energies, Andy Squared, What We Saw At Night, Saving June, Frozen, and The Shadow Society on my TBR list for the longest time. I think the problem is for some of them that I wasn’t so interested in them to begin with as I was with other books I requested, and thus keep getting more books from NetGalley that I’m more interested in. Also, I’m waiting to read some of these closer to their release dates.

Purchased/from publisher:

Again, my main problem here is that I keep getting more books. Some of these I’ve had a couple years and just never got to, and I struggle with keeping the books on my blog current and reading what I want. I probably don’t really need to worry about this, but I do want to show as many recent books on here as possible. I also really need to read The Peculiars; I requested a printed copy from the publisher last May and still haven’t gotten to it (eek!) and I feel guilty every time I look at it, likely with good reason.
