{Meme} Top Ten Books On My Autumn 2015 TBR List

I seriously don’t know why I even bother making these TBR lists. I never manage to read all the book on the list; not even half of them.

Maybe this time around I might read a few more. Ha I can see that happening. Since I only read 2 on my summer list, maybe I might get to read 3 and I’ll be one up on my total. I will be bring some forward from my summer list, just to see if I will read them this time around.

So without further delay, below is a list of books I hope to read this autumn.

{Thoughts} Summer TBR Summary

Now that summer has been over for a few days, I thought I would look back at how well I did with my summer top ten TBR list.

By the looks of things I didn’t do very well.

I did mange to read 20 books over the summer, but only 2 of them were from my actually summer TBR list. While I did mange to read a few more off my TBR list, so that is also a good thing. But then I think I added another 50 books it seems because the list didn’t get any smaller.

Favourite book for the summer you say?

{Thoughts} 2 Year Blog Anniversary


When I joined the book blogging community I never thought I would make it this far. So thank you to everyone who has joined me on this journey. It really has been an adventure so far.

Bookshelf Dreaming come about when I was away holidaying with my partner. Coz that’s what you do when you’re away on holiday, think about starting a blog. I started out just as a place to post my book reviews and a few random thoughts.

However I so wanted to do more. So I started joining author and book promotion sites to help spread the word about the things that were interesting to me. Soon thou it felt like I was doing more promoting than reading.


Last year was crazy. I read over my goodreads reading challenge and participated in quite a few author promotions. While all this was exciting; and discovered new authors (some that our now new favourites), the blog started to feel to much like a chore. It was suppose to be a fun way to connect with others in the book community. But some days I couldn’t even be bothered to look at it.

I know what you might be thinking, and no I’m not closing the blog down.

After much pondering, I have decided to take a step back with all the author promotions. Oh don’t worry I will still be doing them; just not as many. Sorry to all the authors that I may not discover. But I just really want to get back to reading for fun. I have so many books on my TBR list, but because of the blog tours and release day blitz’s they keep getting pushed down to the bottom.

So if you start seeing reviews for older books, that could be why. It’s time to start reading all the books that I have purchased, reading favourite authors’ back catalogs and just general catching up on everything that I have missed so far. I may even throw in a new one every now and then.

*weight lifts from shoulders*

Thanks to the author promotion sites for doing what you do and allowing me to discover new authors; to all the authors I discovered through blog tours; but most of all a huge thanks to my followers, I couldn’t do it without you.

Cheers to another two years



2015 Reading Challenges Rundown

This year I have decided to participate in a few different reading challenges along with the normal Goodreads one that I have been doing for the past few year. I might cheat a little and if one book works for more than one challenge, I will cross it off mulitple lists.

This is meant to be something fun, NOT stressful. If I don’t finish them, I don’t really mind.

I will be keeping track of my progress on the 2015 Challenges page. So check back if you want to see how I are tracking through the year.

Now for the challenges:

2015 Popsugar Ultimate Reading Challenge


2015 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

This one should be fun. I have to read a book starting with every letter of the Alphabet if possible.  All the rules can be found at the above link if you would like to join in too


2015 TBR Pile Challenge

This one should be good since I have so many books to read, but keep reading the new one instead of the old ones sitting on the shelf. I really want to see how I go with this one. This will be the only challenge that I will list the books before I read them. So a better choose wisely I think.


{Article} Throw Away Your TBR List

Below is a interesting look into a bookworm’s TBR list and why do we really have them at all.

die next to read book


The longer I work in books, the more I’m asked how I keep track of what I want to read. Every reader knows that the options are overwhelming–there are more books being published than ever before, and readers have more options for accessing them–and nobody knows how to manage it. So we ask each other. We build tracking tools and apps and social networks. We sign up for reading challenges. We join book clubs. We’re willing to try just about anything that claims to offer us a way to make order out of the chaos that is the unending flow of book recommendations that come at us every day. And if/when we wrangle our received recommendations into some kind of system, what then? How do we, given the finite nature of our lives and our free time, decide what to read, and when?
