At my house.... Okay, that's just a scary pile to begin with! I want to read off my TBR pile, too, so yeah... This is why I didn't want to share! That's way too many books!


  1. I hate making lists too but many of the books I've been wanting to read (and one I have) are on your list.

  2. Tink: Well, I guess great minds thinks alike. :)

  3. No, no, no...don't think of it as feeling's just a jumping off point! So, now do you forgive me...I can't help it...I'm a list junkie.

  4. Too many books? No, never! That is a nice and cozy list--just the right size!

  5. Your TBR list is not scary. I think we all have lists like yours! I know I do. Debi's right, don't feel boxed-in. You can change your list at any time. Happy reading!

  6. Love your lists! I always find some new rec's! :-)

  7. Debi: Well, I hate taking books back to the library unread, so I will probably read most of these!

    Becky: haha, thanks! It will probably get longer...

    Vasilly: Happy reading to you, too! I will have to check out your list!

  8. Clare: I hope you find lots in there, then!

  9. yay! Love lists. And yours is full of both books I love and books I really want to read.

    I'd add my voice to the choir of 'please don't feel boxed-in', but you're probably tired of hearing that. ^-~ I do appreciate you making the list to give a glimpse of what I might find on your blog during the coming three months, though. ^-^

    Although I'm sad to say that, while many of them ring bells, Ironside is the only one I've read. (Little (grrl) Lost is one I might end up adding to my 'officially breaks the TBR-rules' list, though.)

    Happy reading!

  11. Nymeth: I am starting to feel like I really fell behind in terms of reading last year... I am really playing catch-up this year!

    libritouches: haha, I am glad you enjoyed the list! Happy reading!

  12. Some 'new to me' authors and books there so I really look forward to your reviews. :-)

  13. Don't be in a box! Though it sounds like you have a pretty big one with your list. I am also going to try to read what i already own or have on request at the library. Good Luck!

  14. Ohhh, there are some books on your list I hope you do read!!!

    I am surprised to see Bones of the Dragon on your list.. have you read the dragonlance series??? I hope you have because I've put off sending for this book just because I've reread dragonlance enough times that I wonder if I can enjoy something with new characters by weis and hickman

  15. Cath: Well, I hope you discover some good authors and books through my reviews!

    Melanie: Yes, it is a rather large box. I just don't do lists very well. :)

    Deslily: I'll do my best reading! I have read a lot of the Dragonlance books. There is still the newish trilogy to read, but I don't think the third book is out in that yet, and if it is, it's not in paperback!

  16. No such thing as too many books! Awesome list! Damn. You are going to add so many books to my TBR list!!

  17. Stephanie: I hope you find a lot of good books to read!

  18. No Anne Bishop or Naomi Novik?

    I have Marked and Wolf Brother out from the library at the moment too, so let me know if you are interested in doing something together on one of those!

  19. Marg: Of course I have Novik and Bishop to read! lol I just didn't list the books that I own...

    Sounds good on the Marked/Wolf Brother idea. I will email you about it.

  20. That's a lot of books to choose from! I've not read any of them so can't offer any suggestions but I'll be looking forward to reviews. I'm sure I'll be adding to my pile!

  21. Iliana: Yeah, I have a lot of fantasy books! That's just the library list. Hopefully I find time to write reviews!
