State of the TBR Pile: September 2013

I am going to stop complaining about my TBR pile being out of control. It is what it is. I did, however, mean to not have library books on there, mostly because I REALLY need to get through the ones I already have sitting around my room. I have said, on occasion, that what I really need is to fly somewhere again. Not really because I want to go anywhere, but more because I want the six hours (each way) of uninterrupted (forced) reading time. I could plow through a bunch of books, then. Which would be enormously helpful. It would also help if I could get past the “ooh shiny” reaction I have to new books and stop picking them up…. But I don’t think that’s going to happen anytime soon.

So. On my current TBR pile:

Nerd Do Well, by Simon Pegg (because M was showing me some videos about him — his pranks from the Star Trek movie filming — and I remembered that he’d written a book I was interested in reading a while back.)
The Screaming Staircase, by Jonathan Stroud (One: it’s Jonathan Stroud! Two: it’s getting great buzz.)
Heaven  is Paved with Oreos, by Catherine Gilbert Murdock (I saw somewhere that she’d written a new Dairy Queen novel. Sold.)
Texitng the Underworld, by Ellen Booraem (I have to admit that the title turned me off, but Charlotte said it was good. Now I’m curious.)
What We Found in the Sofa and How it Saved the World, by Henry Clark (C said it was trippy. I’m interested.)
Tumble & Fall, by Alexandra Coutts (Our MPS rep at work raved about this one.)
Quintana of Charyn, by Melina Marchetta (I’ve wanted to get to this for awhile, but things got in the way. But M recently devoured it — in one sitting, practically — and RAVED about it.)
The Rosie Project, by Graeme Simsion (It’s getting good buzz at work.)
Keeper of the Lost Cities: Exile, by Shannon Messenger (I’ll be honest: I wasn’t going to read this one. BUT we’ve got an author event scheduled with her, so I feel like I need to. Who knows? I may like it.)
My Basmati Bat Mitzvah, by Paula Freedman (An Indian/Jewish book? Sounds fascinating.)
Wild Awake, by Hilary T. Smith (If I don’t get to it soon, it’s going to fall off the pile.)
Shadows, by Robin McKinley (From last month. I do need to get to it..)

What’s on your TBR pile?
