Open Book Blog Hop – Too Many Books, Too Little Time

Welcome back to another Open Book Blog Hop!

Today’s question is: What is on your TBR pile?

And remember to pay a visit to my fellow writers to see what they have come up with. You can find their works here!

Where to be begin with this? Well, I can say with some certainty that I am relieved much of mine is on my Kindle. My TBR (To Be Read) stack is some what ponderous at this stage. If it were physical, I think I’d become a candidate for an unusal death – buried under the weight of books. Whenever I get another book I just remind myself it isn’t drugs…

But what’s on my list? Well at the last count it exceeded 250 books by a fair margin, so I am going to spare you an exhaustive list. I will pick out a handful of choice options.

First up is The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley. This one has been on my list a while, and I’ve heard it mentioned quite a bit in bookish circles, so am looking forward to this one. Next up is Those People from Louise Candlish. This is a thriller that sounds like it pitches neighbours against one another. It really caught my eye. Then we have She Has a Broken Thing Where Her Heart Should Be by J.D. Barker. I loved is 4MK murder mystery series. This sounds equally dark, but with a hint of the supernatural thrown in for good measure.

I also have Billy Summers and The Institute on my list, must haves given I am a massive fan of Stephen King. I am really excited to read His Dark Materials series since watching it on TV. There are a few classics in there too – 1984, A Clockwork Orange and Fahrenheit 451 to name a few.

As the year grows later there are a few books I will reread as I do every year. First up there’s Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. I love this story, and the film is one of my all time favourites. And every year I read A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I think that’s enough for now, so I should go make a dent in my pile.

  1. Yeah, I have no idea how many books I have on my TBR list(s). Probably at least 200. And then there’s my bookshelves. There’s a lot of books I’ve read before that I intend to return to one day. Mostly, it just saved my kids from having to buy two or three paperbacks for English class every year. My daughter took the same Honor’s English class I took — same curriculum, same school, different teacher — and she delighted to discover my copy of Satre’s The Stranger had notes in it.
