Hi everyone! Today, I’m here to do the To Be Read tag which I found on Spines & Covers’ blog while searching for book tags on Google! I can’t seem to find the original creator of the tag though. Anyway, let’s get started!
1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
I keep track of all the books I want to read on Goodreads! I love being able to make different shelves on there to stay organized.
2. Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
My TBR is 100% print books. I’ve only ever read a few ebooks in my life and I haven’t read one for awhile. I get headaches if I read ebooks on my phone or my sister’s iPad (the only ebook compatible devices I own) so I’ll be sticking to physical books for now!
3. How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
Since I’m a mood reader, I just pick up whatever book I’m in the mood for. Occasionally I can stick to a pre-planned monthly or readathon TBR, but it doesn’t happen too often!
4. A book that’s been on your TBR the longest?
According to Goodreads, the book that’s been on my TBR the longest is Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian. It’s been on my TBR since June 9, 2014! That’s over 3 years!!
5. A book that you recently added to your TBR pile?
The most recent book I added to my TBR is Ruse by Cindy Pon. This is the sequel to Want, which I read (and really enjoyed) earlier this month. I can’t believe I have to wait until 2019 for Ruse!
6. A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover
I originally added Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely to my TBR because of its gorgeous cover, but I also think it sounds really interesting!
7. A book on your TBR that you never plan on actually reading
Probably A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I bought it because a lot of people were saying how amazing it was, but I’m not sure if I’ll ever get around to reading it. I once tried reading a few pages and it was extremely dense. Maybe sometime in the future I’ll try again but probably not anytime soon!
8. An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for
Umm do you have all day? Seriously, I could give you SO many titles for this one. To save time, I’ll only name one: Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. This is the third book in one of my favorite series, The Illuminae Files, and I’m so excited to read it!! It was pushed back from its original release date in October 2017 to March 2018. I’m bummed that I have to wait even longer, but I think it’ll be worth the wait!
9. A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you
I’ve been recommended The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (well, the whole series) by multiple people. I own the entire series, but for some reason haven’t started it yet!
10. A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read
A book I’m dying to read is 27 Hours by Tristina Wright. I’ve heard SO many good things about it but unfortunately I have to wait until October when it’s published to read it!
11. The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf
I currently have 327 books on my Goodreads TBR. That isn’t as daunting as some people who have over 1,000 books on their TBR, but it’s still very intimidating!
I tag anyone who would like to do this tag! If you decide to do it, please leave the link to your post down in the comments! How many books do you currently have on your Goodreads TBR shelf? Let me know!
