Hello fellow bookworms! Today I’m very excited to be participating in my first ever Waiting on Wednesday, a weekly blog meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that highlights upcoming book releases!
I don’t plan on trying to do this every week, since I struggle to post anything as it is, but hopefully once or twice a month!

Hello friends! Today I have an interesting post for you all, one that I’ve actually been wanting to write for a while. With all the ARCs I got at YALLFest recently, I figured now was the perfect time to discuss all the struggles of having an insane TBR!
First, I suppose I should define what I consider to be a TBR. For some readers, their To-Be-Read list is simply a list of all the books they have an interest in reading. This is what most people have on their Goodreads “Want to Read” shelf. I define my TBR as all the books that I own, but have not yet read. Those books are also what I put on my Goodreads TBR shelf. This is how I know that I currently have 148 unread books in my possession, either in print or e-book format.
I know, I know. I can practically hear the sounds of a child weeping and a helpless woman screaming for mercy over that atrocious number. How it got to be that way? Well, I started buying YA books on a regular basis in 2014. Then I kept buying. For three years. I don’t read nearly as fast as I’m able to buy, apparently.
You’re probably thinking, what can a person with such obviously bad TBR problems tell me about managing one? The truth is, I can’t. I really don’t know a sure-fire way to get your TBR under control, if there even is one. But I’ve also tried a fair number of gimmicks to limit my TBR, some of which have worked more than others. So I’m here today with a fancy list of non-examples to help you manage your TBR!

Ahhh I can’t tell you how good it feels to be typing away at a blog post again! I don’t think you’re able to truly appreciate something until you have to leave it behind for a while. For those of you that thought I left the book community for good, I don’t blame you! I went virtually dark on here and on my bookstagram. The only place you might’ve seen me lurking for the last month is Twitter. But hopefully I’m here to stay for a long while!
