8 Historical Fiction Books On My TBR List

8 Historical Fiction Books On My TBR List

I’ve always been fascinated by history, and so it’s really no surprise that one of my favourite genres is historical fiction. I just love seeing history come to life in the form of a novel, whether it’s about an event or historical figure I know well, and just want to see how a different author interpreted it, or something I want to learn more about. There are so many interesting looking historical fiction books out there though, that however many I read, my TBR list just seems to grow longer and longer! But here are the eight that I’m most… Read more »

5 Long Books I Want To Read

5 Long Books I Want To Read

Long books are great for getting lost in an epic, sprawling story, but let’s face it: they can be quite daunting. For one thing, they’re a huge time commitment: you know when you start an 800 odd-page book you’re going to be in its’ company for quite some time, so I find I really have to be in the mood! Not to mention the fact that long books can be kind of a drag if you don’t end up enjoying the story as much as you thought… Yes you can DNF them, but once you get so far it seems… Read more »

10 Fantasy Books On My TBR List

10 Fantasy Books On My TBR List

I love fantasy, so as you can imagine, my fantasy TBR list is pretty extensive! Whether it’s continuing beloved series, or starting new and intriguing ones, there’s so many books I want to get to, that it’s really hard to know where to start. I feel like I shouldn’t be starting new series before I’ve finished ones I’m already reading, but sometimes it’s just so tempting! Anyway, here’s just a small selection of books of my fantasy TBR. Some of them have been on there since forever, and others are relatively new additions to the list: ‘The Seer of Sevenwaters’… Read more »

10 Books I Own But Haven’t Read

10 Books I Own But Haven’t Read

As with many bookworms, my TBR is endless, and for every book I read, I add about ten more. The problem is that every time I see one of the books on my TBR for a reasonable price I feel compelled to buy it, even though I know I won’t get to it for a while (I mostly blame Tesco with their £4 books!). Which means I’m now drowning in unread books, and just keep adding more and more to the pile! (And lets not even start with the unread books I have on my Kindle…damn Amazon monthly deals!). So here are… Read more »

How To Avoid TBR Overwhelm

How To Avoid TBR Overwhelm

Since I started blogging a few years back, my TBR list has grown to epic proportions, and that’s great! I’m not likely to run out of reading material anytime soon, and obviously I’m getting loads of great recommendations from other bloggers. But at the same time, it has also led to an unfortunate state I call ‘TBR overwhelm’, which has the following symptoms: A breakout of unread books on your shelf or Kindle. A sense of hopelessness, as you think you’ll never get through your TBR list, and read all the books you want to read. A chronic inability to… Read more »

3 Books I’m Anxiously Awaiting

3 Books I’m Anxiously Awaiting

Oddly for a book blogger, I don’t read too many new releases. In fact I always seem to be hopelessly behind the times, only reading a book that has been really popular a year or so after every one else (and I’m exactly the same with TV shows – I’m finally making my way through ‘Breaking Bad’ right now, a good 3 years after everyone else!). However, there are a few books I’ll definitely be reading as soon as they come out, and they’re all books in series I’ve absolutely adored! For the most part I prefer reading series that are… Read more »

My Physical TBR List

My Physical TBR List

I seem to have been on a bit of a book buying binge recently, and as a result my physical TBR pile has become pretty monstrous (and the above selection is just a few of them)! There’s just been too many bargains about, and there are so many books I want to read that I’ve been unable to resist! The only problem now is (you know, aside from having enough unread books now to build a fort!) that I have so many options that I just can’t decide what to read next. I’ve just started reading The Girl On The… Read more »
