My Full ‘To-Be-Read’ Pile

reading list

Hello everybody! Welcome to my blog, If you’re a regular here then welcome back! Today I thought I would do another bookish blog and show you my ‘to-be-read’ pile. When it comes to buying books, I’m sure I speak for all bookworms when I say, I’ve got a problem. I buy more books than I have time to read them and to put this into perspective, the following list is compiled of books I currently own that I’ve yet to read, not including my reading wish list! (That being said, I am always looking for book recommendations so if you have any, drop me comment below 😉)

I’m not entirely sure I will ever get around to reading all of the books on this list, I do a monthly clear-out whereby I go through all my books and throw out any that I know deep down I will never be interested in reading. The only problem with this is the fact that eventually, when I buy a house, my dream is to have an entire wall in the living room which is floor to ceiling bookcase (think library from Beauty & The Beast) In order for that to look good, It needs to be full of books, however I currently only have room for 2 small bookcases and therefore don’t have space to keep them all for when I eventually buy a house. It doesn’t help that I have lots of old books that I haven’t read yet, but when I see new ones in the supermarket charts, I can’t help but add to the pile! 😬
I recently did my monthly clear-out so this list is actually a lot shorter than it was a week ago, however, I did then go to my local WHSmith where they were having a clearance sale on their books 😬 In my defence, I threw out 10 books last week that I knew for sure I wasn’t ever going to get around to reading and only bought 4 in the sale that were already on my reading wish-list so that’s not too bad, right?

Anyway, on with the list!..

My ‘To-Be-Read’ Pile

  1. P.S. I Love You – Cecelia Ahern (I’ll be honest, I find Cecelia Ahern’s writing style difficult to get into. I did enjoy ‘Where Rainbow’s End’ (A.KA.
