My TBR pile is even more out of control than usual. I think this week I will take pictures of the various places I have TBR books stashed – and there are multiple places. It's daunting.
I have the books vaguely prioritized into the following categories:
Books I REALLY REALLY want to read SOON.
Books I REALLY want to read SOON.
Books I want to read soon.
Books I want to read at some point.
Books I want to read eventually.
I received a reader request to pull the curtain back on the TBR list and reveal a bit of what's on there. So, i think I will start a regular feature where I list some of the books in the top categories, above, and why they are on the list.
This is also a way to pay back the publicists who have kindly sent me review copies, because while I may not review the books soon, at least I can give them some visibility. Also, it's a good way to get some reader feedback on these books. Do they deserve to be on the TBR list?
So here are a few books on the I REALLY REALLY want to read SOON list.
1. Carolyn Parkurst, The Nobodies Album. I talked about this book on the blog here, and want to read it in part because I enjoyed her earlier book Lost and Found, which is a fictionalized account of contestants on a show like "The Amazing Race". I opted not to pick this one up this week after just finishing This One Is Mine, because I wanted a change from the LA setting.
2. Bonnie Burnard, Suddenly. I can't believe I haven't gotten to this one yet. Burnard is a Canadian writer, and I was so excited to get my hands on this copy early. I loved her book A Good House (which I read many, many years ago) and this one looks great too.
Let me know what you've read and whether these books should be on the top of the TBR list!
