Please Sir, May I Have Some More?

ed-robertson-FDzRG30DeVM-unsplashHave you ever had a stack of books that you’re reading and you decide to add another on top or to read a new book even though you really should just finish the books you’ve been procrastinating for months?

I’ve done it so much the past two months. I’ll find a new book I really want to read. Finish it in one sitting and then try to go back to what I was reading before until I find another new book I have to start now. It’s a cycle and I can’t seem to stop it.

It’s not that I’m uninterested in the books I’m reading I’m just having a hard time finishing them, but I don’t want to stop reading them. It’s just that I’ll find a new book and I really want to read it and it sounds really good and… pretty please Grace can I have this book too? And I say yes! So my pile keeps getting bigger. I’m finishing books, just not the ones I’ve been meaning to for weeks…

Does this ever happen to you? What have you been reading for a long time and what books have you read instead because you HAD to read them? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I’m literally right in the middle of this, too, Grace. I just got two books in the past few days and was about to start them when I realized…I literally haven’t finished the other two I was reading. It’s so enticing of the books to do that too us. Hopefully it will all work out soon! 😀 Great post!

    1. There are way too many books that I want to be reading this instance and I have such a hard time pacing myself. If only there weren’t so many books out there calling my name! I’m so glad you understand!

  2. I always finish the book I’m reading before starting another one. However, I have a stack of books waiting for me and I keep buying books to add to the pile. There are so many great books and I want to read all of them. 😎

  3. I feel like I have such a big TBR pile and it just keeps growing. I’m not allowing myself to request anymore until the pile gets smaller. Which makes me sad bc I’ll potentially miss out on books. 😦

    1. Man! Great self-control, but also sad for books you might miss out on. 😢 But… if you speed read your TBR pipe you can add more😏… but obviously I have little self control with my TBR 😂 Good luck on your pile!

  4. Ugh, I can totally relate to this right now! There’s two books that I’ve been reading for weeks but instead of finishing them, I’ve started a new series! And I already know that once I finish that series, I won’t pick up those two books but something else that sparks my interest! It’s a never-ending cycle 😀 Great post, I’m glad I found someone I can relate to 😛

    1. I just did the same thing! I got a hooked on a new series and just put down the other books. I really wanted to finish but it just won’t happen😂 I’m glad you understand too!
