  1. Wooooow, that's quite some list! I keep wondering whether to make a summer TBR list as well, but you can guarantee that half the things that go on the list that I'm really looking forward to RIGHT NOW will have been eclipsed by other books or shifting interests in a month. Maybe a longer list like yours is the way to go, get a bit of everything on there and use it more as a 'pick 'n' choose' thing than a prescriptive reading plan? Hmmmm.

    I actually have several of these on my 'imminently TBR' list too, including Beauty Queens, Wild, Grasshopper Jungle and It's Kind of a Funny Story, AND some of my favourite books are on here, including Attachments and The Secret History. AAAARGH NOW I WANT TO MAKE A LIST! :D

  2. I LOVE LISTS! I love them! I love making them and I love looking at them and I love crossing things off of them. Basically, I just can't get enough of lists!
    I'm also really loving the pick 'n' choose strategy. I did my first pick from the list today and I got Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut, something that I would never have picked up had the universe not commanded me to via the random numbering. I am so glad it did, though. I've never read any Vonnegut before (which, I know, is super strange for someone who was an English major) and I am so glad to have finally started my first book by him.
    I am so excited for Attachments. I have put off reading it because I am so in love with Rainbow Rowell and I don't want to read it and have it be over with.... does that even make any sense!?!
