My Owned TBR: AKA “Beast That Haunts Me From the Shelves”

Okay, guys, this post is gonna be a doozy, but my friend Kathy over at Books & Munches has inspired me: I’m going to make an “owned TBR” post, and show you guys just how out of hand my owned TBR has gotten! Maybe, just maybe, if all of you can see it, you can help me stay accountable for my book ban and the need to knock out some backlist titles? *nervous laugh*

Anyways, this is going to include physical books, ebooks, and ARCs, even though my primary focus is on reading as many of my physical books and ARCs as possible. I’m going to notate the ARCs with an asterisk (*) to avoid confusion about 2018 releases being on the “pre-2018” list. Throughout the year, whenever I haul new books, I’ll add them to this list, as well as marking off books as I complete them! Hopefully, by the end of 2018, a substantial amount of this list will be crossed out. πŸ˜€

  1. Matilda's Library says:

    And I thought my owned TBR had gotten out of control! πŸ˜‚

    In all seriousness though, I’m so envious of how many books you have to read! I can’t wait to keep up with this post and see how many you’ve ticked off by the end of the year!

    I haven’t read that many on your list (in fact a lot of them are on my TBR too) but Heartless by Marissa Meyer and Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson were two of my favourite reads from last year!


  2. Kathy @ Books & Munches says:

    I’ve scrolled over it twice now. The first time I couldn’t stop laughing and staring with huge eyes. Now I’m simply sitting here feeling good about my own list because that one can’t NEARLY be as.. huge as this?! Even my boyfriend just asked me where the hell you keep all these “because we would be having walls of books if you did that” so I’m kind of feeling great about myself now – SORRY. xD

    But! Just try to convince your man to make some kind of deal about it if you read x books of the pre-2018 list. Some extra motivation + having something fun to look forward to = SCORE. [And I’ll be sure to pull you along in my monthly challenges so you keep reading off the list. Like, April? Month of thrillers, suspense and everything creepy!]


    • Destiny @ Howling Libraries says:

      Mwahahahaha… tell him I do basically have an entire wall of book shelves. πŸ˜‚ I should’ve taken an updated full shelfie pic to put on this post! Maybe I’ll edit it in later.

      April is thriller month?! That sounds awesome! I have some thriller ARCs from last October that I still haven’t gotten to. *hides*

        Ohhh no. Because then he’ll realize that’s what I’m aiming for when it comes to my bookcases and he’ll do ANYTHING to stop it. I’m so not mentioning that! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

        Yess! Like, breakdown:
        Munches in March – Munches bingo
        ApTHRILL – Thriller, suspense and all that jazz [Although I’m going King-themed myself]
        Moody May as an excuse to go complete mood reader.
        Jazzy June is a rereading month
        Scifi July – obvious
        – August is nothing because that’s simply ARC August month for me as well, haha.
        And then it’s back to my first ever monthly challenge with Sequel September, OWNtober, Remember November & Diverse December. πŸ˜€


      • Destiny @ Howling Libraries says:

        Bahaha okay in that case, DO NOT TELL HIM! Just slowly add shelves while he’s at work, or something. πŸ˜›

        This is so exciting! I can’t wait to see your bingo. πŸ˜€ And yes, I do, lmao. BTW, no ~spoilers~ but Jazzy June is gonna go PERFECTLY with a Life & Lit event we’ve been planning… heh heh

      • Kathy @ Books & Munches says:

        When he’s gone for the weekend with his friends.. Like I did the first time.. “First there were none and then BOOM, there were three. Oops.”

        PLEASE TELL ME IT’S A HP-REREAD because that’s my “secret” personal Jazzy June-goal.. πŸ˜›


  3. dragonsandzombies says:

    Wow, that is very long πŸ˜€ I do love to look at TBR lists though haha and you have some real treats on there!! I loved ‘The Bear and the Nightingale’ and ‘The Bazaar of Bad Dreams’ was a much better short story collection than expected!


  4. Annemieke says:

    Good luck! I thought about doing this a few years ago but that never ended up working for me. Read: too lazy to keep up. I prefer smaller lists and my tbr is just overwhelming haha.


  5. emmareadstoomuch says:

    hoo boy! i might steal this from you but also WOW. this is bonkers and i love it. so many books!!! so many good ones!!! so exciting!


  6. RedRocketPanda says:

    Omg Destiny, you’re so awful :’) We should do some buddy reads of some of our common TBR books to help motivate each other xD

    I want to do this list as well. I have a copy written in my bullet journal, but it could be useful to upload one to my blog so others can see what I’m trying to work through as well. Mine isn’t anywhere near as bad as yours though πŸ˜‰

  7. Ellyn says:

    WOW this is some list!!
    I recommend:
    We Should All Be Feminists, Howl’s Moving Castle, Heartless and The Lunar Chronicles series!

    I also want to read Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King – it sounds like such a fantastic book but I’ve never read a King novel! ❀️
