Let‘s talk about TBR backlists! All of these books have been sitting on my bookshelves for quite some time begging me to read them, but for various reasons I haven‘t done it yet!

What are some of the books on your shelves that you have been meaning to read for awhile? See any good ones on my reading chair?

To make a dent in this collection, I joined a Goldfinch BR on instagram. I‘ve read the first three chapters and I‘m enjoying it so far!

Silvertongue I feel you on the TBR backlist! Angela‘s Ashes, The Jungle and Don Quixote are ones that are really nagging at my on mine. Good luck on your goldfinch read! A book read sounds like a great idea to finish those tough titles. I read the Secret History and Alias Grace last year and adored them both; hope you find luck with them too! 7mo
KatieDid927 Read all those except A Little Life which is on my list! 7mo
RaimeyGallant Nice pic. I *coughs* keep meaning to finish The Goldfinch. 7mo
valeriegeary I can highly recommend both Atwoods and the Secret History. I think I need to read A Little Life before I die but for some reason it intimidates me. 7mo
Emilymdxn I was really excited for Goldfinch and A Little Life and wound up really not liking either 😓 it‘s a hazard of spending a long time looking forward to a chunkster book! Hope you like them all tho! I adored secret history 7mo
Lizpixie I love your blanket! I‘ve got too many to count on my backlist, including The Handmaids Tale & The Secret History. There‘s so many awesome new releases I get distracted👀 (edited) 7mo
sprainedbrain All of the books on your chair are worth reading, but I definitely preferred The Secret History to The Goldfinch. 😃 My backlist is so bad... but my BOTM shelf is the worst. I have 25 of them yet to read, and it‘s been a year since I cancelled. 😳 (edited) 7mo
Hollie I loved A Little Life! The Goldfinch is on my tbr, too! 7mo
Carolyn11215 I loved the Handmaids Tale. And I hear the new tv series is pretty good too! 7mo
eraderneely Such a lovely photo! 7mo
Freespirit Your selection is excellent. I enjoyed them but did not love them. A Little Life stays has stayed with me forever...it's that sort of book 7mo

“Does such a thing as 'the fatal flaw,' that showy dark crack running down the middle of a life, exist outside literature? I used to think it didn't. Now I think it does. And I think that mine is this: a morbid longing for the picturesque at all costs.” 🐞

I could quote this book for the rest of my life and still find some new striking line with each reread. I can‘t be the only one who feels this way, surely?

Cathythoughts One of my very favorite books 👍🏻❤️ 12mo
Mdargusch I totally agree! 12mo
emilyhaldi One or the only books I've ever reread!! And I would do it again ❤️ 12mo

I find literally every character in Tartt books so deplorable! They‘re hateful, snobby, resentful, nasty little things and yet It‘d be hard to find any character I loved more that Frances Abernathy. Tartt has raised the bar for what I expect from a good book. I no longer crave loveable characters and happy endings... I want devastating! So, who‘s a horrible character you love? #donnatartt #bibliophile #bookaddict #booklover #bookblogger

Cathythoughts I love/hate Heathcliff ...my feelings towards him have changed over the years. I don‘t know what Donna Tartt did , but she wrote a brilliant book , The Secret History remains my favourite book to date. 14mo
Sophoclessweetheart @Cathythoughts It‘s one of my favourites too! Such an amazing book x 14mo
Weaponxgirl Not awful in the worst way but definitely not always likeable was Hagar. As an old women she is so mean to her son but a perfectly drawn human being. Also I need to finish this book I started the secret history but stopped due to other commitments at the time 14mo
Sophoclessweetheart @Weaponxgirl Thank you for sharing! I‘ve never heard of this book so I‘ll take a look x 14mo

QOTD: Are you a fan of The Secret History? 🍃🖤 I am The Secret History trash. Seriously in love with it. It has mystery, unlovable characters, beautiful writing, aesthetic goodness.. It feels like a love story to my interests and tastes. 🙊🖤

If you love it too, would you be interested in candles based on it? I‘d be interested to know 🔥🖤 #thesecrethistory #donnatartt #bibliophile #bookish #booklover #bookaddict #bookblogger #tarttstarts
