Downsizing my TBR.

IT’S THE DAY AFTER NEW YEAR’S! How’s that hangover?

I tried to think of bookish resolutions for 2016 but, after thinking about it, all I want to do is downsize my TBR (to be read).

I’m going to put myself on a book buying ban so the money I would use to buy books can be spent on travelling to see my friends, instead!

Under the read more will be all the books I have on my TBR. I’d love to know where you think I should start so leave a comment if you so please!

  1. Some of these books are also on my TBR, but I recommend To Kill A Mockingbird, a classic that never gets old. Also, good luck with your book buying ban! You have a stronger will than I do!
