The TBR Tag!

I’ve seen this tag doing the rounds and I thought it would be a fun one!

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I use Goodreads and my own shelves, since I know what books I have and haven’t read… mostly because I feel like they’re sitting there, watching… waiting… *shudders*

Is your TBR mostly print or eBook?

Probably print, but it’s a bit easier to tell since I can actually see them. I’ve been really trying to make an effort to get through my physical TBR list. The ebook one is enormous too, but it doesn’t take up as much space as my physical one!

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

I go by emotion and what I actually need to read, unless there’s something that has really grabbed my attention.

A book that’s been on your TBR the longest?

I wouldn’t have a clue. My Goodreads list says it’s Journey From Venice by Ruth Cracknell, but I know for sure that I have books older than that.

A book you recently added to your TBR?

Toby’s Room by Pat Barker

A book on your TBR strictly because of it’s beautiful cover?

My Mistress’ Sparrow is Dead by Jeffrey Eugenides. I don’t know if I’ll even like it, since I generally dislike short stories.

A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?

So many. I should probably go through and weed them out. Some of them I have absolutely no idea what they are, I’ve just added them after seeing them in a bookshop or online.

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?

I can’t really think of one… I should be more up to date with new releases.

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

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends you?

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I bought it for $1 but haven’t got around to it yet!

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

I’m actually reading the book I’ve been busting to read, The Cuckoo’s Calling by J.K Rowling Robert Galbraith…. So probably the next I’m excited about would be Les Miserables. 

How many books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

589. That’s not so bad, especially considering I don’t actually OWN all of those books!

  1. I think I probably have more digital to-be-read books than physical. I store then in a separate folder on my Kindle and the amount in there is depressing. However I also tell myself they’re not taking up any real space 🙂

    • I don’t even dare count how many of them I have… it’s a bit too scary! They’re so easy to accumulate! But yes, they don’t take up any actual space, so it’s a bit less stressful… but so much more easy to ignore than a teetering pile in front of you!

  2. What is your name on Goodreads? I have like in the neighborhood of 80ish on my TBR list… Lol. Would love to follow you on Goodreads, as I love to keep up with what other folks are reading 😉

    • My Goodreads user name is Belinda G, I’m pretty sure there’s a link to it in my About section =) Definitely add me, I love new Goodreads friends!!

Tell me what you think!
