The TBR Tag

The TBR Tag!!

Thank you to Noelia over at A Day In Bookland for tagging me!! She tagged me a while back but I was only able to get to it now because I started college on Tuesday and I had a lot to get used to :P Thanks again Noelia!!!

1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile? 
Simples!! I use Goodreads, which is absolutely great in my opinion. I love all the shelves you can make and how you can rearrange them and then the best thing ever is the barcode scan!! I can just scan my books and the exact edition goes onto my shelf. Amazing!! No more searching through editions for me..

2. Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?  
Printed!!! I do not do ebooks. Ever....

3.  How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next? 
I usually go by what I have to read for my Goodreads group, or then if I realy want to read something or if I have to finish off a series. I have a TBR box as well but I want to change it :P Because I want to stick to it and Constance did a great post on how to make cool little TBR papers for your jar, so I want to do that. Perhaps today :P

4.  A book that's been in your TBR the longest.
I don't know which one has been on it the longest because I wiped my goodreads about a year and a half or so ago, maybe longer, it was when the barcode thing came out and I went with my little brother and scanned in all my books again. So, on Goodreads, it says Wolfsbane, but that ain't true because I only got that recently so I think it is possibly The Gates by John Connolly. 

5.  A book you recently added to your TBR.
Oh my God, my Dad just picked up this book for me a few days ago!!! I was so happy because I was searching for it for ages....and now I finally have it!!! (**Side Note: My TBR's are books that I actually possess and not ones that I have on my wishlist or what I'm thinking about getting**)
Anyway the book is..... Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee and it is in hardback!!! You guys all know I wanted this book in hardback because under the dust jacket is beautiful!!!

6.  A book in your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover.
I think that would be Eden by Keary Taylor..

7.  A book in your TBR that you never plan on reading. 
I have to read them all... I just have to!!! Because I bought them so I have to read them.

8.  An unpublished book in your TBR that you're excited for.
Talon!!! I haven't read any of Julie Kagawa's books yet or a dragon book yet actually. But I really want to and this one sounds amazing!!!

9.  A book in your TBR that everyone recommends to you.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, possibly. I know I haven't read it yet. But I have to read it now and get it finished this weekend so I can write a book review on it for college!!

10.  Number of books in my TBR 
134!!! If you are a regular to this blog you know of my monthly progress to try and bring down that number :P

So there is the tag!!! Thanks again to Noelia and I am gonna tag anyone who wants to do it really because I'm too lazy to go get links at the  moment :P


  1. Good answers!! Another print books kind of girl, yay!!!! *high five*
    Talon, Talon, Talon.... ohhh, I want to read that book so badly!

    1. Yesh!!! There is nothing better than printed books!!
      I know!! I want it do badly!!!

  2. Oh no, believe me, if you want to stick to your TBR Jar, don't fold your papers in stars like I did. It takes /forever/ to update. I think I haven't added a book since....mid-July?

    Gates of Thread and Stones seems amazing!

    YES, write your review on ToG!!!

    1. Haha I already did it yesterday :p But my stars were crappy so I just kept them as pentagrams :p

      I can't wait to read it!!!

      I will :D I'm about a quarter of the way through the book and I love it!! But the review doesn't have to be done till next Friday so I should get it finished before then :p

    2. Mine are always kind of crappy too. The first ones look good, and then I start to be bored and they don't even look like stars anymore :P

      Ah, I'm glad! Yes, it's fast paced, so it's a pretty quick read, I think :)
