In the course of January spring cleaning I decided to clean my books and…well…turns out my TBR (to be read) pile is waaaaaaaaaaay bigger than I thought it was. Mostly because it was contained in several small TBR piles around the room.
I’m really bad for seeing pretty books in store, getting all excited, buying them with the intention of reading them IMMEDIATELY…and then getting sidetracked by something else. I can’t be the only one that does this right? Right?
I’m ashamed to say I’ve had some of these books for, uh, a couple of years. Whoops! So there’s a definite mix of old and new in the pile (some of them you might recognise from my new year post).
My plan for 2016 is to get through all these books – I’ll undoubtedly add books to the pile as the year goes on, but the books I’ll list below will be the books I aim to read. We’ll see how far I get! At the end of the year I’ll do an update post to see how I did and each one I read and review will be tagged with #TBR2016.
On to the list!

How about you? Do you also have a large TBR pile or are you super good at reading books as soon as you get them? Any thoughts on which one I should start with?
