To Be Read Tag

I was tagged to do the To Be Read Tag by Jessie. You can see her answers over at her blog here. If you’d like to do the tag then you are officially tagged! :grin: Let’s talk about my TBR/Goodreads habits!


How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I mainly use Goodreads to keep track of the books I need to read or have read. But I am so terrible at updating Goodreads! Sometimes I neglect Goodreads for weeks at a time. I also like to use Pinterest to keep up with new releases for the year/upcoming year.

Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?

I would say it is about 50/50. Books that are print are generally books I’ve bought that I know I will love, and I use my e-reader for library books or review books. If I buy a book then it is most always the physical copy of it.

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

I always just pick up what I feel like reading at the moment. In the past I would come up with a monthly TBR pile but I never followed through with it. Basically it was just a waste of time. I keep up with what I need to read in my head, and then I will pick out other books in a random fashion. I am a very fickle person in general though. :grin:

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

4374400One of the very first TBR books I added to Goodreads when I started it a few years ago was If I Stay. I STILL have not read this book. I really really want to read it but for some reason it just hasn’t happened yet!

A book that you recently added to your TBR pile?


I recently added The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan after hearing awesome things on Booktube. I think it is a war story but I have heard/read tons of good things about it, and it has awesome reviews on Goodreads.

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

8428195I don’t typically buy books based on the cover (not too much anyway!). But one book I bought because of the cover that I still haven’t read is Entwined. I’m not sure if I will even read it, but the cover is gorgeous.

A book on your TBR that you NEVER plan on actually reading.


I don’t know why, but I have no interest in reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. It might be because of all the hype that was surrounding it. Or maybe the creepy pictures?

 An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.

16096824-1A Court of Thorns and Roses is Sarah J. Maas’s new series and the first one comes out next year. I am so excited! And I have to say I LOVE the cover. :grin: I think it may be a retelling of Beauty and the Beast and it has fairies in it.

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

16150830 I feel like it has been forever since I’ve read The Darkest Minds, and I still haven’t read Never Fade. I loved The Darkest Minds, so there is no excuse. I will get to it soon!

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.

10929432Everyone has told me how great Victoria Schwab’s books are, and I still haven’t read one of her books yet. It will happen in the near future!

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

6266872I am dying to read The Name of the Wind but I’ve been waiting till I get the second book to start it.

The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

I have 75 listed on my TBR Goodreads shelf. I still have a lot to add to it though. I don’t know why I don’t update it more often. Maybe that will be one of my bookish resolutions for 2015.


What are some of the books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
