I’ve been tagged by Brittany at The Book Addict’s Guide for The TBR Tag! Yay!
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Depends how you define TBR, to be honest. Usually, TBR means my to-read list for me, and for that I use Goodreads. Any time I see a book that interests me, I stick it on my TBR (and very rarely prune the list down.) I also keep track of my DNFs, my need-to-reads (own them, need to read them even if I may not WANT to), and DNFs I might want to retry someday.
When it comes to books I can actually get my hands on, I keep my unread books separate from my read books, and I keep track of my ARCs in Evernote by release date.
Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
Print. Don’t get me wrong, I have a lot of eARCs, but my physical shelf is overflowing with things I need to enjoy. Honestly, the only time I’ll buy an e-copy of a finished book is if it’s 1) super cheap, 2) something I’ve already read, and 3) one of my absolute favorites.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I’ve actually talked about this before. ARCs get top priority and I read those based on release date, then I fit in my finished physical copies as I have time and based on my mood.
A book that’s been on your TBR the longest?
Oh gosh. I’ve had books on my shelf foreeeeeeeever. Like, I’ve owned Jurassic Park for forever and a day.
A book that you recently added to your TBR?
My latest addition to my physical shelf is an ARC of I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios. My latest addition to my Goodreads to-read shelf is The Cost of All Things by Maggie Lehrman.
A book on your TBR strictly because it has a beautiful cover?
I do my best to avoid adding books solely because of pretty covers (see: the size of my TBR) but I can’t help staring at Deception’s Princess every time I see it. She looks like Merida!
A book on your TBR that you NEVER plan on actually reading?
I don’t think I’ll ever actually read Num8ers by Rachel Ward. I mean, I own a physical copy (from a giveaway) and it’s on my Goodreads list, but I can’t muster any enthusiasm.
An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?
SO MANY OPTIONS!! I mean, there are books by Leigh Bardugo, Rae Carson, Robin LaFevers, Rachel Hartman, and SO MANY OTHERS lurking on my list and my heart can’t handle it.
A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you?
Ermmmm… I actually haven’t read past book 3 of the Harry Potter series yet. I’m going to, don’t get me wrong, but I just haven’t made time yet.
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?
See above. *covers face in shame*
A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read?
I really want to read The Walled City by Ryan Graudin. The ARC is waiting on my ereader, but it’s too far from the pub date. On my physical shelf, Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay has been making eyes at me.
The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
1348 “to-read” books and 124 “need-to-read” books. -_-
