The TBR Shame Tag

I stole this tag from Erin @ Book Loving Nut

This tag forces you to name and shame every unread book that you own. 

Every. Single. One.  

(You dug your grave. Now lie down in it and suffer.)

My physical TBR of shame...

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen


Pandaemonium by Christopher Brookmyre


Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

(You never do seem to make it through boxsets.)

The Lady in the Tower: The Fall of Anne Boleyn by Alison Weir (Technically I have read this, but I haven't reread it which is precisely what I bought it for in the first place.)

Maria by Mary Wollstonecraft

Total: 24

(I'm ashamed to be your acquaintance.)

I tag anyone else who feels like having an epiphany about just how out of control their book buying habits are. 

Is your TBR as tall as you yet?


  1. I'm right there with you. My TBR has tried to bury me a few times...and nearly succeeded ��

    1. My TBR is yet to try and kill me, so I guess I'm winning. ;)

  2. Is Ivy just an acquaintance though? I don't have a TBR because that would be too shameful haha

    1. I guess that's all she's willing to admit to since I bring shame upon the blog. ;)

  3. This post actually made me feel a lot better. 24 isn't too bad - I've definitely got more than that - but you make it seem so manageable by alphabetizing everything. Thanks for the perspective shift:)

    1. It ended up alphabetised because I figured it was more readable that way, but you're right it did make it feel A LOT more manageable. Like, when I first started making this books I just had all the books piled on the table and it looked TERRIFYING. :')

  4. Ohhh I am NOT DOING THIS. 😂😂 It would be so wildly terrible?! ah ahaha ahem. But hey I don't think you're doing that badly! (Although I do love the Maze Runner books so hope you read them someday.) I also need to read the Hazelwood um, like, yesterday.😂We need 71 more hours in our day iT'S NOT OUR FAULT.

    1. Aw. I'd love to see you do this - your TBR must be HUGE! In fact, I'd love to see anyone who applies for ARCs do this. :)

      I'll get there. I definitely want to read the next Mazerunner book at least, but it really does seem like I'm cursed when it comes to boxsets. I didn't get through all three Hunger Games books. Not my cup of tea.

  5. Dang girl. If I started that list, you would never be able to scroll to the bottom. There's 500+ items on it. :D

    So yours is very small!!
