Apparently, I love reminiscing about all of the books that I haven’t read, because this is my second TBR related book tag that I have done. This one will be hovering around the same ideas of the dreaded, but also loved to-be-read list that all of us book fanatics know and love.
This book tag was inspired by Book Twins Reviews.
1. How do you keep tracking of your TBR list?
I mainly use Goodreads as my go-to for keeping track of all the books I want to read. There’s not much rhyme or reason to it. I see a book that I’m interested in and just tack it on there.
2. Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?
When I was younger, and still living at home, I was definitely an in-print kinda gal. I had at least three large bookcases in my room filled top to bottom with as many books as I could muster. However, moving out and college play a role in my book medium for sure. Due to lack of space and general price points, I have switched over to e-books for about 95% of my books. The only exceptions being books that are given to me as gifts, and Stephen King books. 😛
3. How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
Hmm, I guess it all depends on the time of year really. I really like themes and find myself giving my TBRs certain themes for certain months. For example, in October, I’m planning on reading anything October-ish or spooky or paranormal. When February rolls around, I’d strictly be reading romance. You know, stuff like that. However, when I can’t really find a particular theme that I want to attach to something or another, I just read whatever sounds the most interesting and what I think will keep me most engaged at that time.
4. A book that has been on your TBR the longest?
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I added it back on April 30, 2013. I’m really intrigued by the plot and format of this piece, I’ve just never gotten around to reading it. Maybe I can knock it out this October!
5. A book that you recently added to your TBR list?
Sadie by Courtney Summers. I literally just added it today, September 26, 2018. I’ve known about it for quite sometime, especially when scrolling through Instagram. But today was the day it officially made it onto my TBR list.
6. A book on your TBR list simply because of its beautiful cover?
The Diviners by Libba Bray. A very pretty and intriguing cover, but I have also heard good things about the book itself.
7. A book on your TBR list that you never plan on actually reading?
This one is a toughie for me because I’d like to think that I will read every book on my TBR list eventually, and if I’ve lost interest in a book and think I’ll never read it, I typically remove it right as the thought passes. However, looking through my TBR list now, if I had to pick one, I’d pick Poison Princess by Kresley Cole. I tend to keep books on my TBR if I’ve already purchased them and they’re sitting on my shelf or are on my Kindle, which is the case with Poison Princess. But who knows, I may actually read it one day.
8. An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?
For sure, this one has to be The Toll by Neal Shusterman. Ever since I read the first two installments to the Arc of the Scythe series earlier this year, those being Scythe and Thunderhead, I’ve been waiting with bated breath for the next book to come out. Unfortunately, it is not set to be released until sometime in 2019. Hopefully earlier in the year than later.
9. A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you?
I feel like I’m going to be cursed with this book every time I get asked a question like this. It is still Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Sigh, I’m just gonna move on from this question now.
10. A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?
This one has to be A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. Everyone who has read this says it is absolutely great and recommend it to be quite often when I’m stuck on what to read next.
11. A book on your TBR that you’re very excited to read.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. I’m very involved in social justice and issues in equality, or lack thereof, and this one has been on my mind for awhile. I heard a movie is being adapted from it and is to be released to theaters sometime this year, so I definitely want to knock this one out before the movie comes out.
12. The number of books on your Goodreads TBR?
Right now I don’t have a crazy exorbitant amount, because I cleaned it up a bit earlier in the year. Currently I’m at 70. If you want to check it out, visit my Goodreads page!
Hopefully, with the remaining few months that we have left in this year, I can cross a few of these off my list, as well as many more.
