Every avid reader has a queue and most readers have a wishlist. I happen to have an outstanding TBR (to be read) pile. I have a tendency to snatch up books left and right either at my local bookstore or when a local library has a book sale. The latter brings me more joy because I know the proceeds are going to the library.
This means my bookshelves are rarely bare and that doesn’t include my eShelves. In case any of you are wondering, I have an Overdrive app for my library borrows, kindle, iBooks and blue fire reader. I cannot list my TBR in total because that would probably be close to 500 books!
but…here are some books that are in my queue. Comment below if you’ve read or want to read any of the mentioned!

These lists are what is in my immediate queue, my lists are actually much much longer, but if you feel a touch overwhelmed just looking at this, imagine what the actual list would look like?
Call me crazy, but I can usually whip out a book of 400 pages in nearly a day. I’m often referred to as a robot in terms of reading. So, now you know what my Queue looks like!
In case anyone was wondering what my current Review Request is — yes, I’m still taking requests for reviewing, it may take a little bit unless you include a deadline or preferred finish/publishing date of said review.
I’ve been trying to read Anna Karenina off and on for the past year or so. It’s not that I’m bored with the story, I’m not. I’ve just had trouble keeping up with who is who. Sometimes the characters are referred to by their full names, other times, by nicknames, and there are so many characters to keep up with. I’ve set it aside at least four times in the last year or so.
Or maybe I’m just not paying enough attention as I read it?
I’m not giving up on it. One day I will finish it!
Admittedly, Anna Karenina is a book I’ll listen to when I’m coloring. Like you said, it isn’t a boring book because I found myself thoroughly intrigued by all of the various stories of the characters. There are a lot though and a lot of surrounding stories that you can’t (at least I find,) breeze through it. It’s a book that needs your attention.
It’s one of those I have perpetually on loan from my library!
