It’s been a while since I’ve jumped into Booking Through Thursday, but I’m playing along this week! Here’s the challenge:
“So here today I present to you an Unread Books Challenge. Give me the list or take a picture of all the books you have stacked on your bedside table, hidden under the bed or standing in your shelf — the books you have not read, but keep meaning to. The books that begin to weigh on your mind. The books that make you cover your ears in conversation and say, ‘No! Don’t give me another book to read! I can’t finish the ones I have!’ “
I feel moderately okay just posting almost all of my new bookcase because the vast majority of the books there are unread! When I was setting up my shelves two weeks ago, I placed pretty much everything I’d read on the very top shelf. A few of those mass market paperbacks haven’t been flipped through yet, but I have them organized — and know just which ones they are!
In the center, the only books I’ve read are four of the five Megan McCafferty books — the Jessica Darling series — seen in just about the very center of that shelf. What else do I have there? Well, just because I love lists and can’t stand to pass up the opportunity to make one, let’s take a walk through my bookcase . . .

I could continue on, but I’m starting to stress myself out! So many fantastic books I’ve been meaning to get to forever, but I never seem to have the time to grab them. I’m hoping to pick up my reading speed in the very near future . . . we’ll see. Until then, I’ll savor what I’ve got while it’s in my hot little hands!
I’m wrapping up The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer tonight — and my (rave) review should be posted tomorrow! Then it’s on to finish Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange and Meg Cabot’s Size 12 Is Not Fat. I actually have about 100 pages of each read . . . I’ve started this annoying habit of getting halfway through a book and then deciding to start another. I guess I should work on that, too!
