My physical TBR (aka send help)

I have a bit of a problem: I love books. I mean obviously. But the problem is also that the rest of my family loves books too, so we have a ton of books. And we have similar tastes, so there’s a ton of books I want to read that aren’t even mine. So I recently I went through our shelves and took just the ones I want to read immediately. There are so many more that I want to read eventually (my mom has most of Margaret Attwood’s books, and we have some classics I want to read) but it was already overwhelming.

So these are mainly the books I got for Christmas or received recently.

From our shelves

  • The Shoe on the Roof by Will Ferguson
  • The Leavers by Lisa Ko
  • Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman
  • Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
  • The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill

That’s 23 books! I’m thinking some will be fairly easy to get through. I have about 150 pages left in American Gods, and I’m about 10% of the way through 1Q84 (but the book is 1157 pages long so that’s not really saying much), and I’ve read the first bit of the Measure of My Powers (which is probably done by the time this post is going up. Update: at the time of posting this, I’ve read The Measure of My Powers AND Salt to the Sea!). So we’ll see how much reading I get done this summer!

Also there were some lovely aesthetics happening, so please enjoy these pictures of my colour-coded books.

  1. Of your list, I’ve only read Ready Player One, so I’m not a great judge of what you should read next. However, I will say that I found Ready Player One to be a very quick read, since it was more fun than substance. It read (to me) like a movie instead of a book.

    It sounds like you’ve got a lot of fun reading ahead of you, though, and I completely feel your pain. I was looking at my bookshelves the other day and noting that I have many more TBR books sitting there, waiting, than I thought I did. O.O Not sure how that happens…

    1. I’m super excited! I’ve heard so many good things about all the books, so hopefully I enjoy them!

      I totally get that! I went through our shelves and there were so many books I’d forgotten about
