The TBR Shame Book Tag

So… I have a fuck ton of books on my shelf that I haven’t read yet. I also have several books I’ve put “on pause,” so to speak. I’ve been meaning to get back to them, but I haven’t yet. And then, of courses, there are the books I gave up on but may give a second chance to at some point.

There are like 60 books altogether on this list. I know, pathetic. Anyway, I think it’s about time I expose my shame to the world. This will be an ongoing post, as it is liable to change at any time. I’ve also split it into the three categories I mentioned in the first paragraph.
