The adage is a writer reads more than he or she writes, yes? I have no idea where I read this, or where I heard this . . . I just remember learning it somewhere and this lesson sticking with me for some reason. Just like the “I before E except after C” rule lesson stuck with me until I saw word like Science . . . Yeah. That made sense. Along with this:
Anyway, back to my TBR (to be read pile) . . . it’s getting huge. I have some of it in print (I love the smell of a new book – don’t judge me) and some of it on my Kindle (I’m so addicted to that gadget – don’t judge me)! Here are some of the titles I’ve yet to read: (none of these are affiliate links, by the way)
- Fracture (print): The Flicker Effect, by Melanie Hooyenga
- If I Stay (print), by Galye Forman
- The Fault in Our Stars (Kindle), by John Green
- Suppressed (Kindle), by Kira Saito (currently 28% through this one)
- Witch: A New Beginning (Kindle), by L.S. Gagnon
- The Moonlight Palace (Kindle), by Liz Rosenburg
- Hallow City (print), by Ranson Riggs
- Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook (print), by Donald Maas
This is my “immediate” list . . . this doesn’t include things I have loaded on my Kindle that I want to eventually get to . . . I’ve taken some pictures of what I have loaded here:
As you can see, I love how to books, indie books, and books that help me improve my craft. I also like keeping books that I’ve already read on there because, after a period of time, I will go back and re-read them as I tend to do with print books. I love that I can keep a library of books on my Kindle right at my fingertips, but I doubt I’ll ever give up the real-true feel of a printed paper book. There’s something about paper books that I’ll never be able to replace with an electronic gadget.
The point of this post is that, once I’m finished reading through each of these titles, I’ll be writing about them. Some I’ll be posting about here on this site, and the rest will be as reviews on Amazon.
What is YOUR to be read (TBR) pile like? Is it on your Kindle, a pile of books, or a mix of the two like mine?
