Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB @ Should be Reading

This week´s musing asks:

What book tops your TBR (to be read) pile right now? Is it something you own, or something you have to borrow, or something you’ll be purchasing? Why do you want to read it so badly?

Oh boy, my TBR pile. That´s a very difficult subject. First off, let me tell you that I have two seperate TBR piles. One of all the books I´ve actually bought already and one online. On my actual, real TBR are all the books I have the feeling I can´t live without. Of course, this pile has the unfortunate tendecy to grow rather uncontrolled. Right now, there are approximatly 40 books on the pile, all waiting to be read. I don´t really know when I´m going to take the time, but well. I can live without sleep for a while, but not without books. :)
The next books from the actual TBR pile I´m planning on reading are As Lie the Dead by Kelly Meding, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Shade Fright by Sean Cummings plus two e-books I´ve received for review. The first one I want to read because I really enjoyed the previous book in the series, Three Days to Dead. The second book because everyone says they are amazing and the last one because I´ve had an interview with the author and he is awesome.
My online TBR pile grows every day. Literally. It´s more wishlist and TBR combined. As soon as I have money to spare, more book ofthe online pile end up on my actual TBR pile. Or when I´m feeling sad. Or happy. Or when I think I deserve a treat. Or when I get a present. Or just because. *evil grin*

So, tell me about your TRB piles!

don't feel bad. I think my TBR pile is at about 200 books.
but I like to think of them as 200 little treats waiting for me.

The Hunger Games is awesome-a totally different premise stunningly delivered. I read it in one marathon sitting--I literally could not force myself to stop reading until I finished. Enjoy!!
