Booking Through Thursday: Unread Challenge

Today we were presented with the Unread Book Challenge. We are to either list or take a photo of the unread books we have stacked on tables, floors or where ever. These are the books that we've always meant to read, but for one reason or another, haven't gotten around to it. They are also the books that make us feel guilty about bringing other books home!

I think this is a great idea for a BTT post. It's just the thing I need to make me realize I've got some great books laying around the house waiting to be read! Although, it's a bit ironic that I just brought home five books from the library this week! Oh well . . .

Here's my list of unread books (in no particular order):
  • Matrimony by Josh Henkin
  • The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown
  • Good In Bed by Jennifer Weiner
  • All He Ever Wanted by Anita Shreve
  • The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton
  • Life of Pi by Yann Martel
  • The Lace Reader by Brunonia Berry
  • The Year of Fog by Michelle Richmond
  • Whistling in the Dark by Leslie Kagen
  • The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
  • Man of the House by Ad Hudler
  • Down River by John Hart
  • The Associate by John Grisham
  • Run For Your Life by James Patterson
  • Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult
  • The Poisenwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
  • The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards
  • The Rest of Her Life by Laura Moriarty
  • The Moment Between by Nicole Baart
  • Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
And those are just the ones that I can think of right now!! There are more, I'm sure tucked away in places gathering dust! I've got some really great books! What books do you have laying around?


  1. I read Whistling in the Dark not so long ago. You are in for a treat! It is a good read.

  2. We have a lot of the same books in our unread piles!

  3. That's a nice list. I've only read a couple of them, but I've got several more on my own TBR list! Yes, I've got a lot of great ones gathering dust, too.

  4. I'm embarrassed about how many unread books I have after seeing your list.

  5. There are a lot of books on your list that are sitting on my shelves too!

  6. You have a TON of great ones to read!! I loved the Poisonwood Bible and Edgar!!!

  7. I have a ton of unread books. I love visiting everyone's blog and seeing what's on their TBR :)

  8. Oh goodness, my unread book pile is ridiculous! LOL I found a ton of books at a thrift store for .10 each and they were all books that I have been wanting to read.. so let's say, my bedroom floor is piled up and that's NOT counting all the ARCs I need to read! LOL

    I loved the Da Vinci Code, Good in Bed, The Associate, The Poisonwood Bible, and wasn't overly crazy over The Memory Keepers Daughter (it wasn't bad but it didn't ensnare me). Middlesex is in my pile!

    Have fun, looks like you have some pretty awesome reads in your pile!

  9. I'd skip Handle with Care but definitely read Matrimony! have a great day.

  10. Is "All He Ever Wanted" by Anita Shreve still on your list of unread books?

    I had read it and written a review on it. When you get to it, feel free to let me know, so I can add your revew to my review post of this book too.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I look forward to hearing from you again soon!
