Towards the end of last year, I shared a list of all the unread books currently on my shelf – around 80 of them.
One of my goals for this year was to make it through a good chunk of them, although so far I’m failing miserably, enticed by the lure of all things new and shiny.
What I didn’t mention in that post, were all the unread novels on my Kindle. Sure, there aren’t as many there, but the urge to hit the download button is strong and my collection is growing faster than I can read, especially when you factor in review copies, which are all too easy to get hold of.
Sharing this list is partly to remind myself of all the great books awaiting my attention, and partly to hold myself accountable.
I really should stop buying new books until I’ve read a few more of the old ones…
Still, I’d love to know if you’ve read any of the books below and what you thought of them. It will help me when it comes to choosing what to read next!
