Thanks to the beautiful Cambrie from And So the Book Begins for tagging me to do the TBR Book Tag.
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Um- see, I am really disorganized about that. I have the Goodreads app on my phone, and whenever I see a book I’m like, OH I NEED THIS. And so I scan it and add it to my Want to Read List. But mostly I just go into the library and improvise. If I have a favorite author and I know I want to buy their newest book, I put it into my nonexistent budget plan.
Is your TBR mostly printed or eBook?
It depends on the book. If the book is from my favorite author/a book I’m positive I’ll love/a book that I’ve already read and love, I will definitely say printed. I am a big fan of being able to hold a physical copy. However, if I just want the book for a fun read, I will always get the eBook.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I basically have my list, and I go into Barnes and Noble and choose the one on sale. No, I wish I could do that! I go into the library, start alphabetically, and pick up the first two or three books that are available from my list.
A book that's been on your TBR list the longest?
Thank you, Goodreads! Apparently Saving Juliet by Suzanne Selfors. I’ve had that on there for two years now. It’s probably time to start reading it.
A book on your TBR strictly because of it's beautiful cover?
The Ring and the Crown by Melissa de la Cruz. I mean, who cares about the average three star rating- look at this!!!
A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?
Icons by Margaret Stohl. Seriously. I’ve checked it out from the library three times now and it just sits on my shelf without ever being opened. It’s really kind of ridiculous, but I can’t bring myself to start reading it. Procrastination for the win!
An unpublished book on your TBR that you're excited for?
Um, I have like, a million. Here are the top ten: [in no particular order]
- The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
- Winter by Marissa Meyer
- The Paris Mysteries by James Patterson
- Captive by Aimee Carter
- Killer Instinct by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
- Fairest by Marissa Meyer
- Princess Academy #3 by Shannon Hale
- Illusionarium by Heather Dixon
- Heist Society #4 by Ally Carter (PLEASE LET THERE BE ONE)
- The Heir by Kiera Cass
A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you?
PAPER TOWNS BY JOHN GREEN.
I JUST CAN’T EVER FIND THAT IN THE LIBRARY AND I DON’T HAVE MONEY TO BUY IT AND I JUST
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends you?
I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. And I keep meaning to read it, but guys! ALL THESE BEAUTIFUL BOOKS IT’S LIKE ONLY BEING ABLE TO GET ONE FLAVOR AT AN ICECREAM SHOP.
A book on your TBR that you're dying to read?
I am really wanting to read The Young Elites by Marie Lu, which actually comes out today :) I don’t know if I have the money to buy it, but I am sure going to try. Be expecting a review of The Blood of Olympus up later tomorrow!!
How many books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
Ugh I never update my TBR shelf on Goodreads anymore, but it says 137 books. I guess I better get started crossing off this list. That’s what happens if you don’t start reading- it just keeps piling up!
Guys, I have no blogger friends, so therefore, if you would like to do this book tag, go ahead, and just say that I tagged you in it.
