Meet Mount TBR

Since I'm still making my way through the thousand page monstrosity masterpiece that is A Dance With Dragons, I thought I would take a weekend post to give you lovely readers a peak... I mean a peek at what I lovingly refer to as Mount TBR (TBR= To Be Read).  My LibraryThing account has over 120 books marked TBR but my GoodReads shelf marks my more immediate plans.  With no further ado, allow me to introduce you to (a small portion of) Mount TBR!

I have some "Fiction Makes You Think" books:

Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
Tall Story by Candy Gourlay
The Ambition by Lee Strobel

Then there's the "Touch of Paranormal" works:
Phantom Rising by Dawn Judd
Hungry For You by A.M. Harte
Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

I've got the "Smoky Black Covers" section:
Middlesex by Jeffery Eugenides
Looking for Alaska by John Green
Reckless by Cornelia Funke

And the "Random YA Mash Up":
Leviathan by Scott Westerfield
The Outside of a Horse by Ginny Rorby
Tyger, Tyger by Kersten Hamilton

Again, this is only the tip of the iceberg.  A few of these are already high priority because they were lent to me by friends or they're books I promised to review; but otherwise, I have no preference of which to read first so if anyone has any "loved it/hated it" comments, I'd love to hear thoughts on what I should get to soonest!  What's at the top of your TBR pile right now?

    I think of you every time I look at my stack of library books...also, you come to mind when I get a hold notice from the library. There are three waiting for me right now.

    Eep!

    I've heard nothing but good things about Sarah's Key. Riveted by Middlesex. DNF A Discovery of Witches. Really liked Tyger,Tyger. I'm taking my time with the Song of Ice & Fire series so by the time I get to Dance with Dragons, it'll probably be out in paperback.

    Yay for Tall Story! =D

    You know what I'd vote for, but since I'm totally biased, I won't really cast that vote or anything. ;-)
