My Indie TBR

Bex @ Ninja Book Box is challenging herself to buy only independently published books next year. I am rubbish at such buying restrictions and I do want to read more of my TBR in 2018, so I may just stick to pledging to buy one indie book a month. However I thought I'd take this opportunity to show you some of the indie books already on my TBR.

There really is a lot of variety and doing this has helped me to remember what I already have on my shelves! Please do feel free to leave a link to your review in the comments if you've read any of these.

  1. Sealskin is amazing,one of my favourite books of the year so far. Also The Clocks in this House... is fantastic if a little difficult in terms of subject matter. Glad to have been inspiring!

  2. Oh, I've had that Blood book for a few years now but never got around to reading it (admittedly I can say that for many, many books). And I did mean to read The Buried Giant this year, considering the Nobel Prize thing... but I haven't.

    I have read The Book Collector though! Charlotte bought it for me for Christmas the year before last, I think.


Everyone loves comments, right? I read them all and do my best to visit your blog if you leave a link (and you're not a spambot).
