Booking Through Thursday: Unread

Booking Through Thursday

An idea I got from The Toddled Dredge (via K for Kat). Here’s what she said:
“So here today I present to you an Unread Books Challenge. Give me the list or take a picture of all the books you have stacked on your bedside table, hidden under the bed or standing in your shelf – the books you have not read, but keep meaning to. The books that begin to weigh on your mind. The books that make you cover your ears in conversation and say, ‘No! Don’t give me another book to read! I can’t finish the ones I have!’

Several times I've posted the picture of the shelf by my bed that holds most of my TBR books waiting to be read. So instead of posting that again, I'll attempt to write a little list of what's currently on that shelf:

The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell

The Road by Cormac McCarthy

The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson

The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon

The Blue Notebook by James A. Levine

The Secret History by Donna Tartt

Gossamer by Lois Lowry

Fablehaven #3 by Brandon Mull

The Outlaws of Sherwood by Robin McKinley

The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti

Marley and Me by John Grogan

The Last Days by Scott Westerfeld

The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing by M. T. Anderson

The Map of Love by Ahdaf Soueif

Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vvonnecut

Oil by Upton Sinclair

Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

The House of the Spirts by Isabel Allende

Hide and Seek by Wilkie Collins

The Traveler by John Twelve Hawks

Clapton by Eric Clapton

Anthem by Ayn Rand

Peony in Love by Lisa See

Okay, okay. I'll quit now! But as you can see, I don't really need to be buying more, checking out more, or listening to any of you suggesting more! But what's the fun in that? You know I'll never stop doing any of those things, so on with the huge TBR!


  1. The Namesake has been in my TBR forever!

  2. I liked The Road in a depressing sort of way.

  3. The Road and The Sparrow were both amazing reads in their sometimes gut-wrenching ways.

    Gossamer and The Good Thief are in my "towers" somewhere and I'm looking forward to them!

    TBR madness seems to be a real blog theme lately. I captured a visual of my TBRs in a vlog I made this last week. What timing, ey? :o)

  4. I know. I really don't need anymore books, but it is fun to bring more books in the house, so I will do it anyway!

  5. How can you possibly choose which of these wonderful books to read?!

    No wonder they are all sitting on your shelf!

  6. You must read Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time -- it is fantastic!
