All my unread books (tbr)

On my Goodreads account I have a shelf called ''Books I Own Tbr''. That shelf has the same thing as ''To be read'', ''Currently reading'' and ''Read'' which means that they are not on my ''To be read'' shelf (so basically my To be read shelf is my wishlist). I don't have that many unread books (only 20 and 5 that are in the George Orwell complete novels bindup so 25 in total) so I can show them to you very easily. Here are my unread books:

-The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawtthorne

- Little Women by Loisa May Alcott

- Good morning, midnight by Jean Rhys

- Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell

- Hamlet by William Shakespeare

- The Hunchback of the Notre Dame by Victor Hugo

- Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens

- Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

- Burmese Days by George Orwell

- A Clergyman's Daughter by George Orwell

- City Of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments #4) by Cassandra Clare

- City Of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5) by Cassandra Clare

I think my tbr has a good variety of genres, difficulty and length which means I only have one or a few of each thing. Sometimes I still feel my tbr is way too big because I just want to read a book immediately when it arrives in the mail, so that's why I'm not going to buy much 'till the end of summer and just read as many as I can (without feeling overwhelmed). After summer I'm going to a new school and I don't know how much time I will have for reading then and I really want to read most of those books, so yea.


My tip for not having a big tbr (if you don't want that) is just not to buy so many books. If you've read quite a few then buy one or two and read until you're okay with your tbr.


How many books do you have on your tbr and are you happy with that number?
