How huge is your To Be Read pile?

Over the course of the week I received two packages with a lot of books in them. Don't we just love receiving books in the mail? Well, you and me both!

I had the honor of receiving books from Andy Batangantang and Iyadls who are totally generous and without compare.

From Iyadls I received John Fuller's The Memoirs of Laetitia Horsepole and Nedjma's The Almond: The Sexual Awakening of a Muslim Woman both of which I really love! I especially am looking forward to start reading The Almond, because it has been a year since I started to look for it.

A couple of days after the previous book parcel, I was surprised it was followed up with a bigger one! I almost rolled around in complete glee. Andy gave me David Borgenicht's Worst-Case Scenario Almanac, Kim Edwards' The Memory Keeper's Daughter, Nicole Galland's Revenge of the Rose and finally Brenda Rickman Vantrease's The Illuminator.

I added all the books I received in my to-be-read pile. As you can see below, I can't house the books in the little carton box anymore!

I am kind of embarrassed at this point, as there are so many titles waiting for me, so many books nearby who need my love and I can't spare the time to read as much as I want. I'm juggling 2 other work aside from my dayjob so I'm often really tired. My work requires a lot of concentration and writing so I can't really do any work and read at the same time.

I'm trying hard to speed up reading my current book, Grotesque, not because I want to finish as fast as I can but the story is really building up. There's a lot of wickedness in the book, but it's not without wisdom.

Thank you for reading my blog!
Goodluck on your reads as well!
