All The Books I Can Read

1 girl….2 many books!

About The Girl

I have been an avid reader as long as I can remember. I can’t imagine not having books around to read. I decided to start this blog as in 2010 I wanted to do a 50 Book Challenge – where I challenged myself to read 50 new books during the year. I was posting what I had read and my thoughts on my personal blog, just to keep a record for myself when I decided that it was clogging up that blog too much and that it deserved a blog all of its own. I googled Book Review Blogs and was happily surprised at the number of wonderful blogs out there.

In terms of ‘about me’, I am 31 and mother to 2 active little boys. I’m married and my husband has as much of a problem with reading and buying books as I do. Combined we own close to 1000 books and the collection grows by the day. Space is definitely getting to be a problem. I buy most of my books online now – it’s the only way I can really purchase as many books as I do, even though I spend a lot of time wishing I could purchase even more!

I can be contacted at 1girl2manybooks {@} gmail {.} com for requests to review or just a general chat! I love hearing from people that enjoy reading and books just as much as I do. Unfortunately at the moment I am not accepting self-published novels for review unless I’ve already reviewed for the author in the past/have a relationship with them.

  1. Welcome to the blog world Bree!

    Bree is the nickname (for Breehy-hinny-brinny-hoohy-hah) of a character in the Narnia tales of C.S. Lewis.(Although I’m not an expert about these books. I just collect names in a notebook.) The book in the series with Bree is The Horse and HIs Boy. Maybe your Bree is from that, or, if not, delightful happenstance for the dedicated reader that you are.

    hi i happen to cum across this site recently and read your review for the book The faithful place and read the book later nenjoyed it very much could u please reccomend other books too thanks.

  4. Hi, came across you while looking through Broke and Bookish Top Ten Tuesday meme (I just discovered her blog today). I’m with you on Enid Blyton, she turned me into a re-reader as a child too.

    Reading your ‘about’ page and how space is becoming a problem made me think of a book you may like. It’s called The Paper House by Carlos Maria Dominguez. It’s about bibliophiles and peoples’ passion for books that literally take over their lives and their homes! It’s beautifully written and filled with so many insights into books and why people love them.

    Anyway, thought you’d enjoy. Deborah.

    Just wanted to drop you a note to say I’m loving your blog! I found you a couple days ago (I think from a review you posted on Amazon but I can’t remember the book).

    I have a been massively at a loss for good books since the year started and reading your reviews gives me a really good idea of whether I’ll like it or not.

    I read Good Girls last night and it was excellent and I’ll probably give Forbidden a try after I finish Extremely Loud and Incredibly close.

    I also thought I would throw in my own recommendation – Claire Lazebnik has several books I love. A little deeper than Sophia Kinsella/Meg Cabot, but still a fairly quick read. I think my favorite was “If you lived here you’d be home by now” but I really love them all.

    Thanks for the recommendations!

  6. Hi Bree,

    Just thought I would check out your blog – it looks great! Nice to “meet” another avid reader. I’ll make sure to keep checking in. It’s fun keeping a blog (I have my website and a blog – Each Day a Gift and Write Note Reviews), but do you ever find it’s hard to fit in with all the reading?


    • Hi Monique, there are times when blogging definitely gets in the way of reading – usually then I just shove it aside and pick up another book! πŸ˜‰ I’m shocking for keeping on top of my reviews usually (am actually up to date at the moment, strangely enough!) but there are days when I am 9 or so reviews behind. Usually I just have to set some time aside after I’ve finished my current read, but before I’ve chosen my next read. I’m indecisive so that time can be easily long enough and just get the reviews churned out. I have a bit of a “formula” now for writing my reviews that I’ve been sticking to for a while and I find that it’s quite easy to stick to that. Although there are some books that are just so amazingly hard to write about!

    There’s no such thing as too many books, just too little space πŸ˜‰
    Found your site via armchair bea. Very cool design.

  9. You sound like me!! Except I’m 31 and have a 4 year old and a 6 year old lol. My partner and I live in a tiny 2 bedroom cabin, and our book collection has overflowed from the bookcases onto the dresser (and sadly – some into storage).

    I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award πŸ™‚ Just follow the link for the rules and how you can nominate great blogs too –

  11. I’m like you. I have a bookcase full of books I’ve bought but not read yet. My husband jokes about me bringing home more books because they’re on sale. I wish I could suck them in by touch like my creatures do with human life from my own book.

  12. Hi there Bree,

    You’ve got a great blog – well done. I’ve added it to our blogroll at and I was wondering whether you might be interested in adding our blog to yours.

  17. Gosh, I don’t know how you can possibly read so many books! I have set my Goodreads goal for 20 this year (I’ll probably read more but who wants the pressure?!). Of course, there’s plenty of other reading to be done too, including finding time for blogs! I love reading and collecting the books I want to re-read, and we’ve run out of shelf space too. They end up two deep and in piles on any flat surface…And then there are the drafts written by my writing friends, and all those library books… So many books I’ll never get to read, it’s overwhelming. Your reviews make it easier to choose though, so thanks!

    Do you count audio books as read books?
    There is a debate about members on GR about that.
    I listen to audiobooks when it comes to nonfiction. Can not cencentrate listening when I listen to fiction on audiobooks.
