I was staring at my bookshelf earlier, something I do quite often, and asked myself: “When will I ever have the time to read this all?” I already have so many books I need to read, so many books I still want to read. If only there were more hours in a day!

Anyway, I transferred my frustration into making something pretty! Here’s a random wallpaper for y’all:

so many books so little time 1920x1080

Download full wallpaper version!

Don’t think I’ll be making a regular feature out of this (but who knows)- I just thought I’d share! If you want it in other colours/sizes feel free to request. Meanwhile, I hope you’re having/ had a great Friday! What are you planning to read for the weekend? :)

  1. Love the wallpaper! Whenever I think about how many books I want to read I have a tiny mental freak out. Like you said, there’s just not enough time unfortunately.

  2. Thanks for the wallpaper!! I never think I’ll have time to read all the books I want. My TBR list only gets bigger and bigger. I’m sure we all wish for more time in the day

  4. I love it! Those are some of my favorite colors. I just like how purple, pink, and blue are all mixed. So pretty! I have been on an on/off reading slump ever since 2014 started, but I plan to change that when finals are over (which is next week).

  6. There will always be too many great books and not enough time. :) This weekend I started City of Lost Souls.

  7. It always makes me so sad to think that there are thousands of books that i’m never going to read. So many characters i’m never going to fall in love with. So many beautiful fictional places i’ll never get to visit. Beautiful wallpaper xx

  9. HI! Same feels. I also collect books and it’s starting to get many. And I also asked myself, “When will read all of these?” I used to buy and buy and buy then just stack it on the shelf. Cause I don’t really have enough time (*because of school stuffs) ugh! -.- I wish I can read them on the Christmas break :)

  10. This wallpaper is so absolutely gorgeous, Hazel–I LOVE it! Also, it’s totally fitting for me, haha. Thank you so much! I’m going to apply it to my desktop now.

  13. The wallpaper looks pretty!! I share your predicament with unread books. If only I can find a job that pays me to read, I’ll never work again. Lol!

  14. I don’t think my server likes you, it’s not been leaving my comments :-(. I’ll try again anyway…

    So I LOVE this Hazel, I love the watercolour texture and the colour is so soft and fluffy. Plus I can definitely relate to “so many book…” ^_^.

  18. Aw thanks! I was looking for a wallpaper for my laptop (:
    I seriously think my greatest regret before I die is not finishing a series or something. That thought makes me seriously anxious.

  21. This is so gorgeous! Guess who’s gonna make this her wallpaper until she manages to finish all her books? Okay well, maybe not that long because well, that’s never gonna happen right? But I’m definitely gonna use it for awhile. Love it!
