73 Shocking Books I Own but Haven't Read

Okay, so we all have that section of books that we haven’t read, yet we’ve bought them over one… two… three years ago? To me, it’s called the ‘One Day Pile’ in which I’ll eventually read them. I have created a system or list which I’ve so far stuck by where I read books from oldest to newest. If you follow me on social media, you would have noticed my library books. I borrow on average three - four per month. I’m still in 2018 releases because from doing work experience in the library, I’ve learnt that they get rid of books which haven’t been borrowed in a while. So before reading the latest, I’m covering the oldest first. I’ve compiled a list of the books I own and will eventually read when they come up in my list.

This list is in no particular order. Brace yourselves… there are a few surprising ones!
