A weekly features celebrating unread books on our shelves! Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up.
My Shelf Control picks will be books that I already own — either physical copies from my overflowing shelves, or one of the many unread titles elbowing each other out of the way on my Kindle.
So, although Bookshelf Fantasies is only counting actual books I’m also going to add in any books that I’ve received from authors and Netgalley that need to be read… so, here goes!
Yet another book that I have had on my bookshelf for over a year. I picked it up and of course NEEDED it at the time, because it was one I heard good things about but the COVER! The cover is gorgeous and I decided I was going to read it straight away.
I brought it with me on a trip to visit the family, knowing I would have time to read. That was last summer. Now there are four books in the Caster Chronicles and I still have to read the first!
It’s going to be another one of those sooner or later reads. I want to read but it’s on my bookshelf for TO READ when I get to it.
