The Intimidating TBR Pile Tag

Intimidating TBR Pile

I haven’t been tagged by anyone do this but I have been watching this tag circulating on book tube, so I figured I would jump on the band wagon. I am not too sure how many books I have in my TBR pile but I am sure it is around 100 books.

1.   What book have you been unable to finish?

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

Intimidating TBR Pile

I started reading this last year and I got a little more than half way through it but just couldn’t finish it. I really want to like Jane Austen’s books because they seem to be well loved and I do enjoy watching the movies. Not sure what it was that I couldn’t finish maybe just not in the mood hopefully I will try reading it again soon and be able to finish it.

What book have you yet to read because…


2.      …you haven’t had the time?

Agincourt Bride by Joanna Hickson

Intimidating TBR Pile

This book has been sitting on my shelf for a few years but haven’t made the time to read it, it is a chunky book, so that is the main reason why I haven’t read it. I really just need to stop putting it off and read it.

3.      …. it’s a sequel?

Fly Away by Kristin Hannah

Intimidating TBR Pile

I was given this book by my mom but it is the second book in a series and haven’t thought to pick up the first book at bookstore yet.

4.      …it’s brand new?

Night Film by Marisha Pessal

Intimidating TBR Pile

This is my newest book that I have added to my TBR pile. Not that I should be adding anymore books to my already enormous TBR pile but I just can’t help myself.

5.      …you read a book by the same author and didn’t enjoy it?

I don’t have an answer to this question, I looked through my TBR Pile and didn’t find anything, I will take that as a good sign.

6.      …your just not in the mood for it?

Cleopatra A Life by Stacey Schiff

Intimidating TBR Pile

This is a biography on Cleopatra, even though I want to know more about her life, I just haven’t been in the mood for a non-fiction.

7.      …it’s humungous?

Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

Intimidating TBR Pile

Pillars of the Earth have been in my TBR pile for what seems like forever but it is huge and heavy so reading it seems like quite the commitment, a commitment that I just haven’t been able to make.

8.      …because it was a cover buy that turned out to have poor reviews?

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Intimidating TBR Pile


This cover is gorgeous and that’s why I had to buy it and the sequel Glass Sword but then I started watching videos on YouTube about it and the reviews were not great. After that I have been discouraged in reading it but I just need to give them a try and form an opinion for myself.


9.      What is the most intimidating book in you TBR pile?

Sophie’s Choice by William Styron

Intimidating TBR Pile


I haven’t had this in my TBR pile for very long but the size of it is pretty intimidating.


10.  Who do you tag?
