Top Ten Tuesday — The Neglected TBR Pile

6 Feb

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme should be titled the Shame Pile, at least for me. Bloggers were charged to search their shelves (and other places hoarders collectors stash their books) for the books that have been waiting the longest to be read. Oh dear! I have to close my ears as I walk past the shelves that fill the rooms of my house because the books whisper, whine, and sometimes shout Pick Me! I’d like to say that the books I chose this week have been on my shelves the longest, but the task was so overwhelming that I settled for random selections. I had such high hopes when I bought these books (and the other fifty gazillion that await). I just knew I would love them because I had loved their sisters and brothers — the books written and read by their fabulous authors. And I am sure I will love them . . . someday. *sigh*  As I lovingly returned them to their places of honor, I promised that one day, they too would join the ranks of the read.

    The books on my back burner…Oh, so many but the ones that I would like to get a chance to read I would have to say, is the Cassandra Clare – The Mortal Instrument series. I have them all. Jus haven’t read them. They have been sitting on my TBR list for years!

    Have a great week of reading!

    That would be too embarrassing to say. I think I owe someone a review yet from about 5 months ago.

      The TBReviewed pile is embarrassing too. I work really well when given a deadline. For those that can be read “whenever”, not so much.

    White Picket Fences made my list too! I love Susan Meissner. I just haven’t gotten around to that one yet.
