2012 TBR Tower!

Happy NewYear everyone! Instead of doing an In My Mailbox post, I want to do something else. I’ve been thinking that in the last months of 2011, I wasn’t a very good blogger. I slacked and I hate it. Though I do have a reason = majors + hectic schedule of classes at the university. I want to make up for that by being slightly stricter when it comes to my TBR pile and my reviewing.

I want to start 2012 by posting my 2012 TBR pile. (Of course, now that the holiday is over, I’m expecting to get more books but as of now, this is my TBR.)

I present my 2012 TBR Tower:

I think it's around 5'9-10 feet tall. Take note I'm 5'1 going 2 and this what I look like beside the tower.

If by some miracle you made it up to this point in my post, I want to thank you for taking the time to scan/skim/read the looong list of my TBR pile!

I'm joining the 100 Books A Year Challenge this 2012 - It's necessary for me!

You can join here.

I’m thinking of not visiting Netgalley in the next three months. Not until I finish these ebooks and review them. (I really, really hope I can resist. I have a bad habit of clicking ‘request’ all the time when I’m there. It’s really my hand’s fault! *glares at right hand*)

I promise to try NOT to buy any new books for the next few months aside from Insurgent by Veronica Roth, The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa, the 4th book of the Tiger’s Curse Series by Colleen Houck, Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick, Fever by Lauren DeStefano and Tempest by Julie Cross. (Those are must-reads!!)

Okay, that’s all. Thank you for clicking, viewing, reading my post!

And if you’re posting your TBR or IMM post, I’d like to see it! Leave a link if you have one. J And I’ll drop by as soon as I can.


  1. LOL geeeeez, Precious!! Crazy tall when comparing it to yourself. You weren't wrong haha! Okay, what should you read first? OOH Article 5! And Born Wicked! And Fateful (loved that!). AND HUNTING LILA! <3 And Linger!!

    Damnit.. why are you making this so hard? Couldn't you have a normal TBR not an out of control one? :P

    Oh man, SO agree with all the ones you do plan to buy... especially Insurgent and The Immortal Rules! I want them so bad!

  2. What an awesome TBR! It's really really really tall! I love your TBR though. It's great that you have lots of great books waiting for you to be read! I hope you're able to finish the TBR quickly! :)

  3. Oh dear me ... an earthquake and you would have disappeared beneath those books and never been seen again, hahaha!
    But seriously, if I presented my TBR pile in just one stack it'd be three stories high. I'm not joking *sigh*. But this is what book buying bans are for :-D !!

  4. Woah! That's tall, er, many. You might end beating the record of the highest building in the world. Hope you finish it all.

  5. wow! Precious! what a TBR! you really need to read at least 3/4 books a week to be able to finish those! :) you can always overtime over the summer.! i have 27 books to read to! here’s my IMM:

  6. ''Woah! That's tall, er, many. You might end beating the record of the highest building in the world. Hope you finish it all.''' lol ikr
    what he said/ readzilla

  7. lol wow I thought my TBR pile was bad, I made myself go on two book buying bans last year just to semi catch up...but wow you have sooo many drool worthy books sitting there. Hope you get through it all :)

  8. My TBR pile is here:

    It currently has 107 books on it and I haven;t added in all the books I got for Christmas.
    I'm trying not to buy anymore now either, but I have to get Insurgent by veronica Roth.

    Good luck getting through your pile. :D

  9. You have a really impressive stack of TBR. Lots of them look really good. I just did two posts on my TBRs. Here they are: Ms. Martin Teaches Median and Inside of a Dog which only manage to show the top layer of my TBR mountain. Mine are clearly out of control and must be tamed!

  10. I think it is a good idea to try not to buy so many books. I'm thinking of putting myself on some rule where I have to read 5 or maybe even 10 of my own tbr pile books before I'm allowed to purchase a new book for each 5 or ten I read.

    My tbr pile is over 400 books though so yeah I wish my pile was as small as yours is.

    Happy reading in 2012.

  11. Thanks for taking the time to read everyone! I'm thankful and relieved that I'm not the only one with TBR issues. I hope that I can read all of these by the end of 2012 (It will be difficult, I know!) Goodluck with our TBR piles!
