TBR Book Tag

I was tagged by Bogdana at Bogdana the Booknerd for this tag and it look like a lot of fun so I thought I would give it a try.  Bogdana has a wonderful blog and runs a Perpetual YA Bookworms group on Goodreads so check her out!

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
I track everything I read on Goodreads, but am not real good at tracking TBRs.  I have a basket at home which holds all my library books, and a shelf for any physical reviews copies I receive.  I have been trying to use a planner more so I log when digital galleys from Netgalley and Edelweiss are released so I can look at a glance and see what I should be reading.  Also, I find that doing monthly TBR posts on my blog helps me prioritize some.

Is your TBR mostly print or ebooks?
Both.  I enjoy reading in both forms but go through periods where I am reading one more than the other.  Lately I have been accumulating more physical books, but reading more ebooks.  I am also bad about adding freebies to my kindle, so the list on it is constantly growing.

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I try to be mindful of what is set for release, or what is due at the library soon, but every once in a while, I just pick up something at random - it helps me keep my sanity.  I guess you could say I am a mood reader, but try to pick from what needs to be read in a timely manner which still fits my mood at the same time.

A book that's been on your TBR list the longest?
Bloodshot by Cherie Priest.  This came out in January 2011 and I still haven't read it yet!

A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover.
Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan...see?

A book you recently added to your TBR.
Chapelwood by Cherie Priest - I loved Maplecroft.

A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading.
Probably right now it's The Drafter by Kim Harrison.  I bet I will read it some day, but I read the prequel novella and didn't care for it too much and it will do me no good until I get over losing Ivy, Rachel and Jenks from her Hollows series.

A book on your TBR that everyone has read but you.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.  It's everywhere!

A book on your TBR that you are dying to read.
It's a tie between NOS4A2 by Joe Hill and The Martian by Andy Weir.

An unpublished book on your TBR that you are excited for.
Marked in Flesh (The Others #4) by Anne Bishop.

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.
Don't really have an answer for this one.  Probably is Throne of Glass.

How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf? 
I plead the 5th.  There are a ton.  But in honestly, for years my TBR shelf and wishlist have been the same thing and I am bad about just adding a book when I see it so I don't forget about it later, so it isn't a TBR in its truest form.

My nominations:

Chucklesthescot from Chuckles Book Cave.  I don't know if she will want to do it, but I love her blog!


  1. I'll help with this...Throne of Glass YES! OMG I love this series. Also I feel you on the TBR/wish list combo, mine used to look like that until I finally cleared it out some. I also decided it's easier (which might not be best for my wallet) to just keep wish lists on amazon I have separate ones for physical and e-books lol Also helps me check my e-book list regularly for any flash sales!

  2. Thanks for nominating me Barb! I enjoy answering questions about my books so this is going to be fun and I'll do that today. And thanks for your kind words about my blog!
