So Many Books, So Little Time

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:

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? :)

    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.

    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

    I like your wallpaper. Doesn’t show the overwhelm.

    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).

    Oh my goodness, I love this.

  6. Amanda on December 13, 2014 at 8:26 pm

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

    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

    Hazel, this wallpaper is gorgeous! I immediately downloaded it and set it up as my desktop background. Love the colors, love the design, and I definitely think you should do more :)

    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 :)

    […] created a downloadable wallpaper we can all relate […]

    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.

    You are so right about there being so little time
    I’ve done my top 5 for Christmas here :)

    I think we all share you frustration. Very pretty background! :)

  14. Irish on December 15, 2014 at 7:18 am

    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!

    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…” ^_^.

    This is so beautiful, Hazel! Definitely downloading this and using this on my laptop. :)

    Gorgeous! I love the colors *downloads*

  19. Adriana @ BooksOnHerMind on December 18, 2014 at 12:19 pm

    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.

  20. Shannelle C. on December 19, 2014 at 5:30 am

    What font is that? And I love the pretty little colors all over it. :3

  21. Yani @ Paper Boulevard on December 21, 2014 at 12:16 am

    Thank you so much, Hazel! I would love you to tweak my blog soon. :)

  22. Laura Plus Books on January 2, 2015 at 7:01 am

    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!

  23. lea on January 8, 2015 at 6:26 am

    I love it!

  24. Drew Farinas on January 10, 2015 at 12:06 am

    This is so pretty! Gotta use it as a wallpaper! Thanks for sharing. And yes I feel you, I wish there are more hours in a day so that I can read more.

  25. Girlie Kilario on January 15, 2015 at 7:00 pm

    I know how you feel! And I think I’m going to save this picture and set it as my desktop wallpaper ♥

  26. Janelle on December 4, 2019 at 2:22 am

    This is gorgeous. I’ve just downloaded it and it’ll bring me so much joy every time I open my laptop.
