My Name in TBR Book Tag — My Monster & Me

[A gif that perfectly illustrates my relationship with the said shelf …]


“Cats don’t have names,” it said.
“No?” said Coraline.
“No,” said the cat. “Now you people have names. That’s because you don’t know who you are. We know who we are, so we don’t need names.”

― Neil GaimanCoraline

You know my name but not my to be read shelf… so I’d like you guys to be acquainted with my ever growing TBR. I usually feed it once in a blue moon but in large quantities. It’s wrecking havoc in my priorities and a fearsome entity, thus I fondly call it my monster TBR or mons-TBR for short.

So for this tag, what you’re suppose to do is take your name and find a book from your TBR that starts with each letter of your name (in my case it’s two bookper letter). I decided to do both my username and the title for my book blog.
