Feature Friday | The TBR Pile

How fun is this?! I get to be featured at Parajunkee today for Follow Friday!

I love connecting with other readers. I hope you'll say hi while you are here so I can get to know you and follow your blog!

Today's Follow Friday question over at Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read is:

Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

I got a little freaked out when I read today's question. Just the thought of having to pull all of my books off the shelves to count them... My "to-read" shelf on Goodreads only has books that I actually own so I will start with that number: 151.

These are some of the books I am longing to read that were recently added to my TBR pile:



Do you have any books calling to you from your TBR shelf?

  6. Love your blog! Congratz on being featured, I'm a new RSS follower :)

    I have The Book Thief too that's calling me to as well as The Host by Stephanie Meyer. I've heard amazing things about both. Also Divergent, Wings by Aprilynne Pike, Supernaturally by Kiersten WHite..I have so many I want to read - not to mention the 3 books I own of The Mortal Instruments series!!! :D

    Happy Friday!

  8. Absolutely! The book that is calling to me the loudest is Bloodrose! Omg, I want to snuggle and read with that book in my hand so bad, but I'm smack dab in the middle in reading another book.

  10. Congrats on the feature! 150 isn't too bad. I'm at around 100, but I used to be close to 300. My FF

  11. Old follower. Congrats on the feature! :)
    I don't have that many unread books on my shelf compared to some people I've seen. Apparently I read fast enough that I keep up fairly decent with my buying habits. Haha. There are over 200 books that I want to buy though... gotta have the pocket for that unfortunately. :P My shelf is always growing anyway and I do have a nice little "to-read" pile that grows up and down as I read and buy. :P

    Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

    & Enclave and Anna Dressed in Blood are both great.

  42. This question has actually made me feel a lot better about my TBR list seeing as how it's a lot smaller then most so far.

    I hope you are able to start working on your pile soon. Good luck.

  46. Hi, Just stopping by on the Friday Follow. I am a new follower here

    You have a lot to read this year, I guess. '-)

    I have about 4 e-books on my computer that are waiting to be read and reviewed. On the shelf there are none. I usually get books from the library and take them back after reading them. A holdover from my bout with homelessness? Maybe.

    I am at

    where I showcase and review indie authors.
    You can like the fan page for my Home Street Home Trilogy here: http://facebook.com/homestreethomebooks

  55. Good morning - new follower stopping by. I'm all for the long TBR list . . . gives us something to do if we win the lottery, or if civilization breaks down into some post-apocalyptic dystopia. :)

  56. Congratulations on being this weeks feature!!! I am loving all the books you pictured in your TBR on this post. Rot and Ruin was my favorite book out of all the books I read in 2011.

  58. Hi, new follower here!

    I'm feeling ashamed of my low number--10! But I think it might have something to do with the fact that I don't buy many books, and I haven't started requesting ARCs. You have enough books to last you for a year. That's awesome!

  59. Congrats on being the feature! I love Stephen King and should add his newest to my TBR pile. new follower. Going to check out your site now.

  60. My name is Kayla. My TBR pile on goodreads is 149 not including the books that I have at home waiting to be read and the books on my nook waiting to be read.

  61. The Book Thief is on my TBR as well. Your pile looks good! I'm hoping to get a copy of Enclave soon. I've heard nothing but good things about it.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Finally, someone else who has a large TBR number. I have about 120 unread books and my Goodreads is only 101, however, I don't have every book for the series I want to read so my actual number is much higher. Also, congrats on being the feature this week!
