The TBR Book Tag

I saw this video on Books and Lala‘s YouTube page. My TBR is so overbearing that I figured this would be a good one to do! So let’s just get into this.


How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I am probably the worst at keeping track of my TBR. I am thinking about redoing my bookshelves so that my TBR books are separate from my read. The only problem I’m finding with that is the fact I haven’t read most of the books I own… But I don’t really have a set way of keeping track of everything.

Is your TBR mostly physical or eBook?

I prefer to read the physical book so most of mine are physical. I usually read only manga on my Kindle. I need to start reading on there more on the way to work and at night. But because I work overnights, I don’t usually read in the dark.

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

It all depends. Normally I end up having a TBR at the beginning of the month but a lot of the time, I don’t stick to it. Normally it’s just what I’m feeling like reading. I have a TBR jar that has the books I own in there and the different tasks I have from the challenges I’m doing this year.

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

Off the top of my head, I know that I’ve wanted to read American Psycho for the longest time. I’ve started it and got about halfway through before putting it down. I just couldn’t get into it. I’m doing a poll on my Twitter about whether next month I should finish books I’ve started or something else. Feel free to go there and vote!

A book in your TBR strictly because of it’s beautiful cover.

Tonight The Streets Are Ours. I couldn’t begin to tell you what this is about. But I think that’s the only book that I can claim is only there for it’s cover.

A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading.

I can’t say that I don’t plan on reading any of the books on my TBR but I doubt I’ll be getting around to any of my James Patterson anytime soon.

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.

Um, A Court of Wings and Ruin. Do you even need to ask. But also Hunting Prince Dracula. I’ve been looking forward to that since I found out Stalking Jack the Ripper was to be a series.

A book on your TBR that basically everyone’s read.

Uh, all of them. Let’s see, the Lunar Chronicles, Throne of Glass series, Everything Everything, the Grisha trilogy, everything else.

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.

No one really recommends anything to me directly but one that I bought that a friend said I needed to read is In Order to Live.

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

All of them? Nah, I’m really looking forward to getting around to the Throne of the Glass series and finishing up the Lunar Chronicles.

How many books are on your TBR shelf?

GoodReads? 209. My bookshelves? 95 (update from 4/12, this number has increased since I wrote this xD).

That’s about it. Hope you enjoyed! What’s your most anticipated read that you own? Happy reading!

      1. It’s awesome, imo. You can use several different sources like MangaReader, MangaFox, MangaHere, etc. and they even have several languages! I do hope you enjoy it!
