Books on my TBR I’m Avoiding

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday, run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

Ok, raise your hand if you’ve had a book on your shelf for YEARS you’ve been promising yourself will be your next read, and never picked up? Yeah, me too. I am the worst for buying a book I can’t wait to read, and then for some reason completely ignoring it.It’s got to stop, because I’ve been missing out on some amazing books I know people love.

Once you’re in the swing of it, it’s hard to let it lie.
