Also known as the list of books I own but have not yet read. It's appalling, how long this list is. My goal is to chew through it, and not buy any more books until I've ready at least five off the list. (Yeah right. Like that's ever going to happen.)

That's a long list. That's a daunting list. I'll get through it eventually. It just might take me a while. Especially since I'm OCD, and will want to read whole series if the writing is engaging and the story compelling.

Sad thing is, this doesn't even include the books I have for my kindle. That'd be a really incredibly long list.


  1. Hahaha, I feel you there, but then again I sometimes just buy books that I know I won't read immediately and add them to my super-long TBR pile. I don't think it's scary, because it's awesome to have tons of books. I'm a hamster that way :D

  2. Nice list. I would start with the George R.R. Martin, Brandon Sanderson, and Steven Erikson books. They were all great and well with your time.

  3. @ John Oh, I just finished Mistborn. Must say I was thoroughly entertained. It was really good. Lucky me, I have the next two books in the trilogy to read. =3
