The Evergrowing Book Hoard

27540331_10204530699424401_931722432251280364_n

Not long after I read Destiny’s shameful post on her very long Owned TBR list, I saw someone else talking about Whitney’s 2018 challenge ‘The Unread Shelf Project‘. As some of might already know, I signed up for the #BeattheBacklist challenge earlier in the year so I’m always looking for more opportunities which will motivate me to tackle my backlist books rather than keep focusing on new releases!

I felt that Destiny’s post, which lays out all of her current owned books, and Whitney’s project, which features one of your owned books a day on Instagram, complimented each other really nicely so I’ve decided to combine them! That way you can see all of my owned TBR books I’ll be working through (let me know if you want to buddy read any of them) and get a nice picture on Instagram of them. The following format is taken from Destiny’s post ❤ Anything with an exclamation (!) is an ARC and anything with an asterisk (*) is an e-book. This is an ongoing list that will be uploaded as and when I get new books!

Edit: This post has now been updated to make it more visually pleasing and easy to understand, inspired by Grey‘s lovely dragon hoard post ❤
