I have a love hate relationship with TBR’s. I love making lists which is essentially what a TBR is, but I hate having to be constricted to a set amount of books for the month. I’m a pretty sporadic reader and generally like to read whatever my mood is telling me to do, so most of the time I never stick to my monthly TBR’s. But enough of me rambling, let’s get on with this:
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
There are a couple ways I keep track of my TBR.
- I have a jar with the books on my shelf that I haven’t read yet
- I make a million lists of books that I want to buy and read
- GoodReads helps me find new books to add to my TBR
Other then that, I just pick and choose what books to read when the time comes to do so.
Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
I like to keep a good mix of both. If I’m commuting I will take my tablet with me and read an e-book instead of lugging a book around all day. When I’m at home I’m usually reading a physical copy.
Also, if I am unsure of a book before reading it, I usually get the e-book format first and if I like it, I go out and get myself a physical copy for my shelf.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
Like I said above I’m a mood reader. I read whatever I’m in the mood for. I generally like to read at least one or two new releases a month to stay current with my blog and then I will read whatever books have been plaguing my TBR shelf for some time.
A book that has been on your TBR the longest?
This book and it’s sequel have pretty much been on my shelf since they came out dying to be picked up and read. But for the life of my I just can’t seem to do it. There always seems to be something more exciting or more new to read and it keeps getting pushed down to the bottom of the list. Sad I know.
A book you recently added to your TBR
I literally just bought this book yesterday and it will probably get read this month. Funny thing is, I still haven’t read Fangirl, the book this story is loosely based off. Should I read that one first or not?
A book that’s on your TBR strictly because of the cover
I honestly don’t think I even know what this book is about or if I will ever read it. My mind said “oooh prettyyy” and then my fingers hit the “to be read” shelf on GoodReads. The colors get me every time!
A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading
An unpublished book on your TBR that you are excited for?
A book on your TBR that everyone has read but you
I feel like everyone has already read this book and it’s only been out for about 2 weeks now. I still want to finish the Grisha Trilogy first. I really need to stop reading people’s gushing reviews on this book.
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?
I have had this book recommended to me on way more then one occasion. I just haven’t been in a contemporary mood lately. I’m sure if someone gifts this book to me I would be so grateful that I will read it then. -wink wink-
A book on your TBR that you are dying to read?
You guys have no idea how excruciating the wait is for this book to come out. I have been dying to read this book for the past year after finishing Gathering Darkness. This is series has me hooked by the heart and I am never letting go.
How many books are on your Goodreads TBR?
I thought I would have died of a heart attack from looking at this number, but surprisingly the number of unread books on my GoodReads TBR is only 291. I feel like that’s a small number compared to some other people!
Well that’s it y’all. I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as I did answering the questions. Do we share any similarities? Let me know down below!
Until next time,
