Physical TBR from the Backlist

As I’ve complained about before, I’m currently, and for the forseeable future, on a book buying ban (such fun…) So the last part of this year is going to be dedicated to books I already own and should be getting to, anyway.

Coincidentally Kathy from @Books and Munchesย is doing a Challenge called OWNtober, the goal is to tackle our physical TBRs and read all those books we already own!

GOAL: To end this year with 0 books on my physical TBR


With exclusive photos of my shelf because I’m too lazy to stage proper pics. They are in order of tallest to shortest because that’s the way they sit

I have no idea if I will manage to read all of these by the end of the year but I promise to try. I also have someย ebooks on my kindle that I need to get to…

If you have read any of these or you want me to review anything specific feel free to tell me! At this point I don’t even know where to begin reading —

  1. Ooh, Leah on the Offbeat! Except for the one issue in that book, I absolutely love it to pieces. Leah is so much like me – overweight and bisexual, score, haha.

    Also Illuminae! Prepare yourself for the urge to buy the sequels though.. Might endanger that book buying ban.

    Good luck! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. I’ve read a couple of posts on that issue so I think I’ll just ignore it (?
      Getting this edition of illuminae was already so hard though ๐Ÿ˜ซ I don’t think I’ll buy the sequels any time soon
      Thank you! ๐Ÿ’•
