The TBR Pile!

As many of you probably know, I'm on a book buying ban with Amy from Following the Reader. We have to read our TBR piles before we can buy books again... Believe me, this is extremely difficult and I've been pretty tempted to complain LOTS on Twitter, GR, Facebook, on here etc etc!

I thought I'd take a photo of the books I haven't yet read (although I don't actually want to read Confessions of a Shopaholic, I bought it because it was $2.50 and to feed my book buying addiction)... It's actually a lot less than I expected :) Keep in mind, I have the rest of the Percy Jackson series (2-5) and Fury by Shirley Marr which I couldn't fit in my suitcase/haven't yet received! So that makes it 26 books in my TBR pile :)

The Painted Man by Peter. V. Brett
Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Smoulder by Brenna Yovanoff
Against the Odds by Marjolijn Hof
Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson
Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella (Do I *HAVE* to? Or is it worth reading?)
Lips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor
Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck
Tiger's Quest by Colleen Houck
Tiger's Voyage by Colleen Houck
All That Bleeds by Kimberly Frost
Matched by Ally Condie
Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
Fury by Elizabeth Miles
The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards
Ninth Grade Slays by Heather Brewer
Eleventh Grade Burns by Heather Brewer
Percy Jackson 2-5 by Rick Riordan
Fury by Shirley Marr

Oh, and Amy, do I have permission to buy Tenth Grade Bleeds cos it's in the middle of Ninth and Eleventh? Haha :)

Don't forget to check out my 100 follower giveaway!! and and and Taryn Browning's Dark Seeker giveaway!


  1. What a great bunch of books you have to read! I've read the shopaholic series and I enjoyed it, good chick lit kind of novel, would be interested to see what you think of it!

    I offer you a trade! You can buy Tenth Grade Bleeds and I will buy a book too? haha. How on earth am I going to pick just ONE book.. I keep forgetting to do this post.. damn haha

    1. Okay :) Well in that case, I may give it a go... I've just had bad experience with "that sort" of chick lit before haha!

      Yesssaaaa that sounds good :) I'm jealous though cos you'll end up buying some super amazing new release haha! Yeah, I said I'd do it when I got back home and I had nothing to do so yeah haha!

    2. It's not as good as some other chick lit, but I really enjoy trashy chick lit as well so books like that are right up my alley!


  2. AHHH! Taneika! I demand you read The Scorpio Races, Lips Touch, Hunting Lila and Matched first :D Loved those books! And I canot flipping wait to see waht you think of Ashes and the Tiger's Curse series, heard amazing things about both.

    Have fun working through all these haha.

    1. They are definitely already on the top of my list already :D I'm so incredibly excited for them!! I'll have fun reading them all :) they all sound incredible after all !!

  3. haha Taneika :D You're so funny :P But you know I must admit that after all I rather liked Confessions of a Shopaholic :P I've read just this one of the serie and it was good. Sometimes you just want to strangle Becky, but in the end she is really sweet. So I suggest you to read it ;) Hunting Lila is amazing! I've read it 2 weeks ago and I loved it!

    I must admit I have the same problem with Dash & Lily's Book of Dares and The Scorpio Races - I've been planing on reading them since FOREVER lol. I need one of these days, though :P

    What should I say? HAPPY reading Taneika :) ;) <3

    1. Aww thanks :) Well, as it turns out, I may have to read Shopaholic! I didn't think I would enjoy it but I will give it a go :D
      As for Hunting Lila, I'M SO LOOKING FORWARD TO IT! *Squeeeee*

      Thankyou :) <3

  4. I'm so jealous of Hunting Lila! I have looked everywhere for that and can't find it! My library doesn't have it and neither does any book stores near me! I'll just have to settle for your review! Hope you enjoy it!

    1. Nikki, don't worry :) it took me *ages* as in, months and months to find Hunting Lila! And I've only just learned how to shop online haha! As soon as I saw that one copy in my bookstore, I immedietely grabbed it!!

      Thanks :)

  5. I'm not even going to go into my TBR pile. I tried book buying banning, but it never works out. New releases come out or I see books on sale and I just have to have them, even if I can't foresee myself reading them in the recent future. Oh, and I'm SO with Brodie---read Hunting Lila and The Scorpio Races first, although I adored the Percy Jackson series and Ashes is also brilliant!!

    Happy Reading--can't wait to see what you think of some of these!!

    1. Thanks Rachel :D The TBR pile is soooo hard to comply with :( especially cos there are so many amazing books coming out this month!! I can't wait to read those!! But I'm looking forward to see where Percy Jackson goes, but I already said to myself that Hunting Lila is the first I'll read after my Netgalleys!!

  6. GO. READ. HUNTING. LILA. NOW! NOW! NOW! Get onto it girl! :)

    Oh my goodness... there is alot of epic in those piles...
    I have Scorpio Races sitting at home, too... and I just ordered Hunting Lila yesterday :D

    Ooooo! Confessions of a Shopaholic! I haven't read the book but oh my word, the movie is so much fun :D

    I'm still catching up on all the blogs I love that I missed over Christmas :D

  8. Wow! I admire your willpower, because I don't think I could make it through the hundreds of books in my TBR pile before I got more books. It's a sickness, really. Good luck!

    And thanks so much for your supportive comments on my blog too, Taneika. I really appreciate it.
