Prompt 26: Books I'd Like to Read This Year

Amy, Justine, and I have something very big in common...we're complete bookworms! There is always a book we'd like to pick up from the bookstore/library, we're quick to recommend books we love, and Harry Potter is no stranger to our shelves :)

With that, I'm here to announce today's prompt!

List 26: Books I'd Like to Read This Year
It's a little hard to read, so here's my list: 
  • The Maze Runner
  • Dracula, The Undead
  • Red Pyramid
  • Boneshaker
  • The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher
  • Atlas Shrugged
  • Deja Dead
  • Hickory Dickory Dead
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • The Grey Wolf Throne
  • The Son of Neptune
  • Bullet
  • Hit List
  • Matched
  • Incarceron
  • The Scorch Trails
  • The Throne of Fire
  • The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Quite the list, right? And what's worse is that most of those are already on my bookshelf! I buy books faster than I can read them *shrug* but at least I'm never alone, right? I don't know if you've seen this post about the importance of dating a girl who reads floating around the interwebs, but Justine has it on her blog, I suggest you read it :)

Here is a photo of one of our shelves...we have two bookcases...one is a three shelf, the other is six shelf unit. 
 OVERFLOWING!

Pull the books forward and you see a mess load of books behind them! Yes, you're seeing that correctly...books lined up the way they should be PLUS books laid on top of them. We're sick.

I'm looking forward to seeing what books you're 
hoping to read this month/season/year! 
Even though I shouldn't order any more books, 
I'd love some recommendations :)

this is too funny! I have a list actually on my writing desk of books I have been meaning to read or re-read!

I do exactly the same thing. We pared down our book when we moved and put half in storage. I swear that half of the ones we brought, I haven't read yet. It doesn't help that my husband has good taste in books, so I want to read all of his too.

P.S. You and I should have a book club. Also, bump Hitchhiker's Guide up to the TOP of your list!! :)

The Hitchhiker's Guide is one of the most hilarious things I've ever read. I laughed so hard that I couldn't be in a public place while I was reading it.

Love your bookshelf! Most of the books I read are from the library, so sadly I don't have that many books on my shelf. :( But still, if I had the money, it'd be overflowing!

our bookshelves look the same and I have gotten rid of loads over the years!
