We’ve all been there. Heck, we’re probably all still there. In the middle of reading one or two or three books, while at the same time, our to-be-read pile is growing and staring at us and waiting for us to make it part of our lives. And we just keep adding books to it, don’t we? Well, I know I do.
But you know what? I love it! I love that I have books lined up for me to read. I love that there are at least seven books on my bookshelf that I haven’t gotten to yet … because that means I have something (hopefully) awesome for me to read when I’m done with the three books I’m currently reading. And though I can’t WAIT to dive into those books, I love the fact that I’ve got reserves. It’s like making sure you won’t run out of groceries. You love indulging in those Oreos, but WHEW! you’ve got a few more packages tucked away in the cupboard waiting for you. Except it’s even better, because books don’t have any calories. *wink*
Here are a few of the books waiting for me in my to-be-read pile.
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi – I know, I’m way behind on this one. Loved the first book and can’t wait to sink my eyes into the sequel.
Copper Girl by Jennifer Allis Provost – I’ve been holding on to this since BEA last year and I’m dying to get to it. One day. Soon. Very soon.
Triangles by Kimberly Ann Miller – Another BEA prize. Can’t wait to see what the Bermuda Triangle has in store for these characters.
The Doll House Asylum by Mary Gray – Yes, BEA was kind to me. This sounds like an awesome read, can’t wait to get to it.
Indelible by Dawn Metcalf – Yet another BEA win. Can I just say how cool it was to meet Dawn in person?
Okay, I could go on, because there are still a handful of books I haven’t begun yet, though I’m itching to. And this will never change. Because once I do get to Unravel Me and Triangles and Indelible, there will be another ten or so books to add to the pile. And don’t I just love that? Yes. Yes, I do!
