The TBR Tag

I was tagged by the wonderful Rachel at Confessions of a Book Geek AND Brandie at Brandie is a Book Junkie to do the TBR Tag! Thanks, lovelies!

1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

Goodreads mostly. I have a “to read” shelf and a “physical books I own TBR” to keep track of books I own and want to read and those I don’t own but would either like to own or just read.

2. Is your TBR mostly print or eBook?

Print. I mostly only use my Kindle for e-ARCs. I have a couple of books on my Kindle I’ve bought because they were really great deals, but I prefer physical books 9.5 times out of 10.

3. How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?

I’m a bit of a mood reader, so I mostly just pick up the book I feel like reading. However, I also have a lot of e-ARCs that I try to read at least a couple weeks before their release date, so I have to factor that into my reading schedule.

4. A book that’s been on your TBR list the longest.

The Bone Season

I bought this book in 2013 while I was working at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. It’s signed and everything. I just haven’t read it. Why haven’t I read it??

5. A book you recently added to your TBR.

The 100 by Kass Morgan    Confess by Colleen Hoover

Bought: The 100 by Kass Morgan / On GR: Confess by Colleen Hoover

6. A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover.

I don’t tend to buy books just because of their cover. I like to at least read the blurb if not a few reviews. But my favorite cover that I physically own but haven’t read is a tie between

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black    Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda    Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

7. A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading.

Probably none. I don’t buy books I don’t plan on reading. If I don’t like a book, I will either DNF it or give it to someone else.

8. An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.

Pretty much everything on my 2015 releases shelf, but a few I’m really excited about (I obviously don’t know how to pick only one):

We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios Little Pretty Things by Lori Rader-Day Pip Bartlett's Guide to Magical Creatures The Gracekeepers by Kirsty Logan A Court of Thorns and Roses

9. A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor   The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey   Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo   The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

10. A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.

See above.

11. A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read.

ALL OF THEM?! Here are three I wish I was reading RIGHT NOW SIMULTANEOUSLY.

Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater    The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black    Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

12. How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

General “to read” shelf – 363. “Physical books I own TBR” shelf – 73, and this needs to be updated. CUE ANXIETY.

As always, I’m leaving it up to you to participate or not. This was a lot of fun (and anxiety inducing!), so if you guys feel like participating, DO IT! Link me up! 🙂

  1. I also love that CoHo made the list. 😉 Seriously, we should buddy read Shadow & Bone or Smoke & Bone. I have had them on my list forever. I forgot how much I can’t wait to read I’ll Meet You There!! Hearing such awesome things about it lately.

    Holly Black. I’m going to look this book up on GR. Curious now…

    I’m so glad you did this post!!

  2. Haha I love that you said 9.5 times out of 10! I’m so glad to see CoHo’s latest release on here too, does that mean you’re a CoHo convert now??? For your #9 I want to read all those too, and I own two of them already… I smell a buddy read or 4… R x

    • Lol! Well, sometimes I actually do like to read an eBook. It’s rare, but it happens. Brandie said she wants to read Shadow & Bone and Daughter of Smoke & Bone too so we should all do a buddy read of those!
      I don’t know if I’m a CoHo convert quite yet, but I do like MS so far!

  4. I don’t think I’ve done this tag so I might!
    As for your ‘A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you.’ books; I when/if you get to them, that you have a good experience because for me both 5th Wave and Daughter of Smoke&Bone started off amazing but from like the halfway point I just got bored and annoyed with them =/ mainly due to them having the YA typical falling in love with the new first boy you meet syndrome -_- I really wanna read Shadow&Bone but I’ve heard the last Mara Dyer was bad =S

  5. A book from 2013 has been on your TBR list the longest? Oh you kid, you! I haven’t tried to figure mine out yet, but I’m sure to have well over a dozen books from over ten years ago. Apparently I’m not very well organized, lol.

    • Haha! I have plenty of older books like that too, but I wanted to pick one that was sort of recent at the same time! Lol. I also tend to get rid of books if I haven’t read them after having them for several years. I obviously won’t be reading it!
