This is a very dangerous post. Mainly because it scares me to see how big my physical TBR actually is now! Knowing me, by the time this post goes live, there will probably be another twenty books added to the list!
I am terrible for hoarding books. Quite a few of these have been on my TBR for a while, but I’ve promised myself that I will have read all of them by the end of 2019. Whether that will actually happen is a different question!
There are so many books on my TBR shelf that I’ve had to split this post into two parts!
If You Could See Me Now – Cecelia Ahern
This has been on my TBR for almost a year, and I don’t have a reason for it. I love Cecelia Ahern, I just haven’t had the chance to get around to this one yet. It’s not the longest book either, so hopefully, it will soon be read!
What If It’s Us – Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
I only bought this one at the end of October, so it’s not actually that bad! I’m really looking forward to reading this as I waited months for it to come off and then it just got shelved when I finally bought it! I’m praying that it lives up to its reputation.
All of Us and Everything – Bridget Asher
I bought this one on The Works 3 for £5 deal, and because it’s something I haven’t heard the reviews for it, I still haven’t been brave enough to pick it up! I keep meaning to read it but it’s one of those ones where I just keep getting newer and more interesting books that I want to read.
A Quiet Kind of Thunder – Sara Barnard
I cannot wait to read this! I’m really into Sara Barnard’s novels at the moment and the premise of this sounds amazing! It hasn’t been on my TBR for long, and I know that this is one of the books that I am most excited to read.
The Versions of Us – Laura Barnett
This was technically a 2018 DNF, but if I give up before reading fifty pages, I don’t class it as a DNF and I put it back onto my TBR shelf. I heard brilliant reviews for this, but when I first picked it up I don’t think it was the right book at the right time for me. Hopefully, once I restart it, I should enjoy it more.
The Diary Of A Bookseller – Shaun Blythell
This has been sat on my TBR for a few months, mainly because I know it will take time to read and it hasn’t been the right time for me to read it for a while. I will eventually get around to it – I was really looking forward to reading it a few months ago – but I’ve got to start it when I’m feeling more like a beefy book because I know that otherwise, it will make it straight onto my DNF.
The Fandom – Anna Day
I saw all of the hype for this on Twitter when it came out and decided that I needed it. However, I put it down within the first few pages and put it back on my TBR. I know I will like this, I just need to give it more time and not expect to completely love it within the first page.
Lock and Key – Sarah Dessen
I used to love Sarah Dessen and this is one of her few books that I haven’t actually read, and it’s another one that I keep meaning to get around to but I never seem to. I’m definitely going to read this soon though, because I can’t wait to get back into Sarah Dessen’s novels.
The Mirror World of Melody Black – Gavin Extence
This is another DNF, and I’m unsure if I will ever be able to get into it, but I will definitely give it another go this year before finally giving up.
Summer at The Comfort Food Cafe – Debbie Johnson
I loved Christmas at the Comfort Food Cafe, so I had meant to buy this for a while. It’s a relatively recent addition to my TBR, but I may be saving this one until summer to read – I feel like it is going to be a good book to take on holiday with me.
Anybody Out There? – Marian Keyes
A whole year, this has been sat on my TBR, so I’ve sworn that it will definitely be read within the first quarter of 2019. I loved The Woman Who Stole My Life, so I really hope that this is as good. Because of how big the book is. I’ve just put it off and put it off again, but I will finally get the motivation to focus for as long as this book needs.
…and lots of books by Sophie Kinsella
On my TBR, I seem to have hoarded Sophie Kinsella books and not touched them. She is so hilarious that I can’t possibly leave them on there any longer, and I can’t wait to dig into them!
