TBR Shame Tag

I'm a reader, as you all know, and one thing that all readers have in common (other than books) is the humongous TBR pile. Well shelves in my case. I saw this tag a while ago on youtube somewhere, I think it was created by Sarah Churchill but I'm not sure. So who ever created this tag, if it wasn't Sarah, thank you for creating it.

I have a little disclaimer here. I did not buy all of these books in the last month or so. Some of the books have been on my shelves for quite a while or have been books that were given to me by family member (like my Discworld collection, they all belonged to my dad from when he was younger) or presents from Christmases and Birthdays. I wish I could buy this many books in a month but there is no way in hell that I could afford to do that. *Cries*.

And that is it. My TBR pile. 173 books in total, I think. I may have miscounted but I think that is the right number. I could be wrong but who knows! 

How big is your TBR pile? 
I envy the people who only have 20ish books on their TBR pile. But at least I have a better variety of what I could read. But still some many things I have to read!!!!! 

I need to stop buying books! Oh look a new book!
