Feature & Follow Friday (33) / Friday 56 (2)

Feature & Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkiee's View & Alison Can Read. Check out their blogs and the two Featured Bloggers of the week! This is great for finding amazing new blogs to follow and for gaining followers yourself!

This weeks question is: 
"How many books have you got on your TBR list?"

I answered: 
Oh man... I honestly have no idea. My Goodreads shelf says I currently have 2,086 books that I want to read. But I never seem to make a dent in that number because I'm constantly adding more and don't read fast enough to actually catch up! I have an entire TBR shelf at home that is completely full of books I have yet to open because I either go to the library or get ARCs to review from Netgalley or through book tours. I really need to go through the list and delete most of them because this is getting ridiculously out of hand.

What about you? Leave your answer to this weeks question in the comments below.

The Friday 56 is a meme hosted by Freda's Voice. Basically you flip to page 56 (or 56% in your eReader) of any book and post a sentence or two (more if you want) from that page without being too spoiler-y. This gives us a glimpse into what you are reading or have read, and may even prompt us to add your book to our TBR piles!
My teaser:
We stand there. "Come on. Let's just go talk," he says. 
"Why? Do you know why she killed herself?" 
Recoil. Like the recoil of a gun. It's what he does again. Like he's been physically yanked back. Only this time, it's not anger that's on his face; it's something else. "No," he says.
Excerpt From: Gayle Forman. “I Was Here.”

  3. That goodreads TBR list can get out of control can't it? Mine was and I've just recently cleaned it out, there was so many books on there that I couldn't even remember gah!

    Happy weekend.

  4. Over 2000 in TBR shelf? Ouch that's a lot of books!

  5. Oh it's sooooo hard to keep up with all the releases! I've been on a mostly review book kick for awhile now! I sneak in a TBR book every now and then though! Hoping to get more caught up within a week or two! But by then I will likely have added another 5 TBR books and 2 review books! ;)

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!

  6. I've been thinking of reading this one... :)

    Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings).

  7. I have no idea how many books are on my TBR and I'm hoping to keep it that way! I have a feeling if I started adding everything up it'd get overwhelming. This is a book (and an author) I've been wanting to read. Sounds good if a bit intense.

  8. I have 2151 books tagged To Read in Librarything. This isn't a wishlist; it's books I actually own. I don't think there are any Gayle Forman books among them as I read very little YA Contemporary. I'm spotlighting The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead this week since I finally got around to reading it. Happy reading!

  9. Wow! That's a huge Goodreads TBR.
    I think about it too sometimes, and it just makes me sad because I will probably never get to ALL of the amazing books that I want to read.

  10. It's hard to catch up on a TBR list when you're regularly adding new books to it!

  11. It's Freda's Voice, not Frida. :-)
    Gayle Foreman is an author on my tbr list!
    Happy weekend!

    1. oh shoot, sorry! I just fixed it. I know how annoying it is when people don't spell your name right... lol

  12. I don't really use my Goodreads TBR as a true want to read list anymore. So many books and as much as I want to read them, I'll never get to them all as I add new ones too. LOL I keep a reading list in a folder and work from that now.

    I've read another book by Gayle and enjoyed her writing.

    My 56 -

  13. Over 2000 books! That sounds terrifying! I honestly think I would have a breakdown.

    Thanks for visiting.

  14. That's a lot of books! I don't have nearly that many, I do already own nearly 400 books that I need to read though. I'll never read them all.
