Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, created due to a fondness for lists. Each week they post a new Top Ten topic. After that, it's bloggers UNITE! Participate with your own Top Ten post, have fun, and get to know your fellow bloggers.
Today is officially the first day of fall up here in my neck of the woods. Yay! I am a super duper huge fan of fall. Don't believe me? I have posts to prove it and then...still more posts professing my love.
But before this post takes a large pumpkin detour, let's head right into today's topic. This week, it's about the TBR pile. Oh my...the TBR. Mine is gigantic. Seriously. It's over 1,000 books long. I may need intervention.
When deciding what books needed to be on this fall's top ten list, a few things come in to play:
#1...there are books that have been on my "currently reading" shelf on Goodreads for far too long. It's time to tackle them ASAP. I have no good excuse, for why I've been ignoring them. I think library books just keep overwhelming my plans. Darn you, surprise additions to my reading list!
#2...I have a couple of ARCs that need reading and reviewing. My organization skills in that department have been lacking. The sad part is that they are all great sounding books that I have a lot of interest in, but (just like the next group) they keep getting shuffled.
#3...I have a few books that have been patiently waiting for me to get to them, even though I've really been dying to read them for quite some time. I'm honestly ashamed at how long some of them have sat there. Always the case of too many good books to read and not enough time to read them. It's time to let these babies see the light of day.
So here are the official top ten books that I'll be taking on for the 3rd quarter, my most favoritest (I don't care if that's not a word, that's how much I love it) time of the year.
