The Mighty TBR Pile

The glorious and harrowing world of having so many books!

Half the fun of being a reader is carrying a MASSIVE TBR pile like Atlas carrying the world. Here is my current TBR pile. In an effort of full transparency this is not necessarily the order in which the books will be read, just the pile of reads that I am interested in pulling from. This list is as much for me to keep tabs on what’s caught my interest as it is for you, my friends, to know what I am and will be subjecting my eyeballs to in the coming year. These include review copy requests that I am accepting as well as personal choices of desired reads. When a book hits both marks, all the better. The list will be updated on the regular as I finish titles, add titles, rearrange and possibly drop titles. 

Note that this list isn’t law, and is subject to change, as it is definitely not a concrete lineup. Time is fleeting and in short supply this year so I won’t be able nor will I be willing to quote any sort of timeframe on a particular read, sincerest apologies for that, but life is chaos at the moment.

That being said, ARC requests that are time sensitive will more than likely be respectfully declined. I’m taking a leisurely “me year” in order to keep my head in the game and get reacquainted with my love of reading. I am a spastic reader and I imagine that my TBR pile will follow suit, know that I will try my hardest to live my best book nerd life.
