TBR Tuesday is a way to talk about the books we own but haven't read, see what other people think about them, and help us decide whether to bump it up our list or knock it off completely.
[If you're more a book borrower than a book buyer, you're still welcome to participate with the books that you've been meaning to read and haven't!]
On my TBRWithout Tess by Marcella Pixley
Contemporary, 224 pages

This one kind of makes me feel guilty. It came in a surprise package of awesome, and was one of the most highly recommended things in the package. I was all gung-ho for it when I got it, but didn't have time - and then when I did have time, I hit a massive lazy streak and barely read anything. Now, heading into 2 of my 3 big blog events of the year, I've got to begin my fairy tale reading and, shortly thereafter, my Austenesque reading. As much as I love both, this leaves little room for anything else, and if I do read something else, I have to know that it's going to be something I'll devour. All that means I don't really know when I'm going to be able to get to this one. Thus the guilt.
Anyone read this one? If so, did you love it enough to want to push it on me relentlessly? Will this be one I tear through as a bit of a break in my scheduled reading, or is it a pace-yourself-and-absorb-it kind of read?
What's lingering on your TBR pile this week?
