What's on your TBR list?

I am going to admit it here: I spend more time thinking about reading books than I actually spend reading them. It's a terrible habit and one I'm not proud to admit. If I had spent the same amount of time reading books, rather than browsing Book Depository and adding titles to my ever growing "To Be Read" list, there probably wouldn't be a list 'to be read'. I also watch quite a few BookTubers on YouTube and find myself quite enthralled in what books others aspire to read so I thought I'd ask here.

Currently, my (very shortened) TBR list is:

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (I want to read this very soon but I don't know what translation to go with)
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
Animal Trials by Edward Payson Evans (this book is slightly random but it fascinates me greatly)
Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell
1666 by Rebecca Rideal
I also want to read books about the French Revolution and Tudor England, and basically every Thomas Hardy book I haven't read (mostly: The Return of the Native, A Laodicean, and The Woodlanders) This was meant to be a short list whoops


So, what's on your "To Be Read" List? It can be anything, whether you own a copy of the book or not.  ;D

I have 128 books on my to-read list on Goodreads.
Pretty sure half of them have been there since 2014 :-[

I believe most of the HP series is on that list, as well as some of the classic books I've been collecting more recently!
At the moment though, ontop of my radio, I have my next-to-be-read books:
* Isobel on the Way to the Corner Shop by Amy Witting,
* Burial Rites,
* Simon vs the Homosapien Agenda,
* The Bell Jar,
* The Upside of Unrequited,
* and Wuthering Heights
