My To-Be-Read Books

I’ve always wanted to do this post and today, I finally sat down and made it. I have currently only one TBR pile that consists of all the books in my possession. I don’t have any other list such as top books i want to read this year, top series to finish, etc. The reason is simple- I want to get through all the books that I own first. I’m hoping to get through a lot of these this year. I know it will be hard since many of these are classics but I’m gonna try my best. Also, some of these I have already read a while back but I want to read them again. I will be including these at the end of the list. There are 24 books in total. (more…)
