Call of the Undertow | Linda Cracknell

When Maggie Thame, a childless forty-something from Oxford, relocates to a remote village at Scotland's most northern edge, it's clear she's running away. But to the villagers of Duncanby the question remains, from what?

As I sit here tonight in my fabulous library and gaze upon the splendour that is my TBR wall, I realize that the up/down reading slump I'm rollercoasting through at the moment is probably caused by an over abundance of riches! When I finish a book, I get anxiety about choosing the next to read, it takes me an hour of waffling about in front of my shelves before making a decision, then another hour to decide if I'm changing to another! #tbrfright

Laura317 Oh lord, I'm the same way! 3y
Bklover Oh, I do the same thing- so many to choose from!! 3y
emilyhaldi I agree, it's always a struggle!! 3y

TrishB I shouted to my daughter the other day what should I read next and she said 3rd pile in 4th one down!! And I did and it was great 😀 not sure I'd do this everytime but took out the dithering! 3y
asiriusreader I think for readers with long TBR lists, it's always a challenge! I'm with you! 3y
LauraBrook For me I both get anxiety about and enjoy the what-to-read-next dithering. After I've finally picked something (which almost always just right), I like having gone over and touched some of my books, reminding myself of the wonderful stories I still have ahead of me! 3y
Paula3 I do the same thing. I stand there, pick up a book, read the back (or inside dust jacket), caress the cover, read the 1st few pages...walk away...come back, replace the book and repeat with another. Lol. The struggle is real. 📚 3y
AmyG I have been known to "eenie, meenie, miney moe" in picking my next book. I hoard my tbr's in my closet. 3y
Zelma There is something to be said from too many choices and decision fatigue. But it's not the worst problem to have! 😆 3y
Wife When I finish my #LitsyAtoZ challenge, I'm putting all the titles of TBR books that I own into a jar. I will pull a title to pick my read. Some of my TBR keep getting passed over. I will also put "free choice" on a few slips. As I acquire new books, the titles will be added to the jar. 3y
readinginthedark I saw this idea on making a TBR jar where you draw one when you need to decide. I think the key is only putting titles in that you'd be willing to read anytime. 3y
Lizpixie @Wife @readinginthedark I have a TBR jar! It doesn't work for me because I'm such a mood reader, if the book I draw from the jar doesn't match my mood I can't read it, hence why my jar sits looking pretty on my shelf & I'm having #tbrfright 😳 3y
readinginthedark @Lizpixie Yeah, that's why I've never done it. There aren't many books I could read no matter my mood. 3y

Today's #BookMail is four #blameitonlitsy purchases, or to be more specific #blameitonliberty would be more accurate! All four are from indie publishers I believe, Pegasus, Minotaur, Freight & Quercus. I'm pretty sure Pegasus is the only one that I have other books from. These will cover the indie publisher categories in my challenges nicely👍 #BookMail #HappyNewBook

DebinHawaii Nice haul! 👍📚 3y

New read for me today. This was part of the Moth Box book package I got a few weeks ago. Looking forward to reading something a bit different to my usual stuff. #currentlyreading #lindacracknell #mothbox
