TBR Tower Update aka the 6'3 pile

I wasn’t able to post an IMM yesterday because I postponed my trip to the Post Office. I haven’t picked up my parcels yet. Today, I’ll be posting a TBR Update. In January, I posted my TBR for his year 2012. 

I’m sad (because it means I’m WAY behind) and happy (because it means that I’ve got more novels to read) to say that from 5’4 feet, my TBR grew to 6’3 or even more.

If you're still with me at this point, THANK YOU! I know it's a pretty long list and it gets boring to read every title I've written up there!

Oh my God. I know it’s a CRAZY pile. *tears* I need to focus on this before school starts! I’ve officially stopped requesting review copies. I’m going to finish this pile (at least as many as I could – with special focus on review copies.) 

Do you have any advice for me? What should I read first?


  1. Woah! That pile is huge!! I recommend for reading first: Hunting Lila, Under the Never Sky, Clockwork Prince and Angelfall (I'm reading it now and its good):) Good Luck!

  2. Wow, and here I though that my tbr-pile wqas huge. :D But don't worry! Be happy about having so many awesome reads coming up. :) And have lots of fun, trying to reduce this pretty pile. ;)

    Fictional Distraction

  3. Sweet lord . . . that's A LOT of books! Happy reading for you I assume. haha.

  4. HOLY SWEET GOODNESS. The moment I saw your huge pile of a TBR pile, I had top blink at it for a few moments -- it's so HUGE! And there are so many awesome books in that pile too, like Pandemonium and Hunting Lila and Under the Never Sky and Clockwork Prince. I have no idea how you're going to decide which one to read first, but as soon as you do, I would LOVE to read all of your reviews! :D *squeals and hugs the books*

    Good luck, Precious! Hehe, at least you have a whole bunch of awesome already foretold in that pile ;) <3

  5. WOW!!! That is a lot of books!! LOL I would rec Angelfall, Pandemonium and Blood Red Road as my favorites in that pile! Happy reading! :)

  6. If all those books toppled over, you'd be dead. Just saying. LOL. THAT IS CRAZY, PRECIOUS! Although having a mini-library is kinda freaking awesome hehe. OKAY. Let me seeeee.... I love love love the following:

    Under the Never Sky, Pandemonium (OMG CLIFFHANGER!), Everneath, Immortal Beloved (love the protag and it feels so different to other YA), Razorland, The Hunt, Linger, Hunting Lila, Life As We Knew it,

    REALLY eager to read (as in, you must read and tell me how you like it!): Monstrous Beauty, The Lost Code, Leisl and Po, Blood Red Road, Of Poseidon (I own a copy, should be reading soon!), Glitch, Seraphina, Angelfalll (OMG I hear SO much about this!!).

    Wait. is Daemon by Jennifer L. Armentrout meant to be Obsidian? Or is that some ebook novella? If it's Obsidian... READ IT READ IT READ IT. Holy crap. Daemon is a sexy bastard hahaha.

  7. That's a super big pile of TBR!!! I see that you have Hunting Lila, Clockwork Prince and Everneath. You can consider reading these first. (That's because these are the books and series I like... The rest I haven't got a chance to read it yet...)

    Happy reading. It'll take quite a long time to finish your pile! :D

    - Michelle

  8. Holy Cow!! not that I should talk, I wouldnt be game to put my TBR Mountain in a pile like that LMAO. Ordinary Beauty was a 5 star favourite of mine so you could always start with it ;) Everneath, Under the Never Sky and Leviathan were really good too. Alyson Noel's series were quick reads.

    I'd go with reading review copies and read the ones that are closest to release date, rather than the ones you've had forever ... otherwise the old ones and the new ones will be all late and then it's hard to get motivated to read any (yep speaking from experience LOL) and reward yourself with a 'just for you' read thrown in when you've read so many review books. Good luck :))

  9. Thank you all for your recs & advices & comments! :) Will definitely nudge up Pandemonium, Everneath, Under the Never Sky, Immortal Beloved, The Hunt, Hunting Lila, Blood Red Road, Clockwork Prince, Angelfall, Seraphina, Glitch and Monstrous Beauty up my TBR pile. :)

    Special thanks to Teddyree for the great advice!
