Pile Denial: 24

I am in denial.

It is ugly but it is nevertheless the state of things.

Here I will document my struggle with my book obsession. Behold my denial in all of its glory.

Wow, I must have suffered from over-reading syndrome unbeknownst to myself. Because I really struggled to read this last week. Or maybe I had some sort of fear of success blocking my path. Does my subconscious not want to get out from under this stack of books? Or maybe my subconscious realizes it is futile to resist. Must hoard books!

I am totally geekin' out right now. The Girl with the Iron Touch!!! If it were possible my eyes would have popped out of my head when I got approved. I couldn't believe it. So very excited. It will be hard not to drop all my other review commitments in order to satisfy my need to read this book. I better pull out my iron self-control. Not that I put much stock in it since that same iron self-control didn't stop me from getting buried in books. lol.

Is it just me or are their an insanely large amount of book blog tours in the beginning of April. I am getting notices and requests all over the place. It is a good thing I rarely get noticed for the big ones or I would be in trouble. I would probably go and do something silly like double book myself and overbook myself. Ending up with way more books than I could possibly read. I really do try to repeat my mantra to myself. "No more TBR pile." But it doesn't always keep me from picking up a new book.

So glad to have my own copy of Through the Ever Night. It is such a beautiful book. I can't wait to see what the last cover will look like. Lucky for me I have already read this sweet book so it doesn't add to my TBR pile.

Until next week. . .

Here are the numbers of books hanging out on my TBR pile.

Pile Truth:
Books:44 (decreased) :)
eBooks: 27 (increased) :(



How about you? Are you in denial?

  2. great for your physical tbr pile decreasing! as for blog tours, I only sign up for books I am dying to read so I always ignore them and delete the email so if i had a moment of weakness i won't find it.
