TBR Book Tag

  Thanks to Francoise from the lovely, My Crazy Bookish World, for tagging me to do the TBR Book Tag!

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
  I keep all of my TBR books on a separate shelf than my read books.  Not to mention, Goodreads helps me out a lot with organizing and keeping track of my TBR books and read books.

Is your TBR mostly printed or eBook?
  My TBR is completely printed books.  I used to use eBooks, on my NOOK, but after awhile I missed having a physical copy of a book.  Now I only ever use printed, and it sure does take up a lot of space on my shelf!

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
  This is tough question for me, because I never know which TBR book to read next.  Normally, as weird as it sounds, I find myself closing my eyes and randomly choosing one to read ( I can't ever decide on one).  Or, much simpler, I just consider which genre sounds more interesting at the time, and chose the book accordingly!  

A book that's been on your TBR list the longest?
 A book that's been on my TBR list the longest, is Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney My grandma bought it for me for my 14th birthday last November!

A book on your TBR strictly because of it's beautiful cover?
 I'm not really sure . . . Thinking about it  . . . Probably, Love Letters to the Dead, by Ava Dellaira.  Even though the synopsis sounds absolutely awesome for this book, it's probably the cover that intrigues me the most.

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

  A book on my TBR that I never plan on reading, is  . . . Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia.  This book has been on my TBR list for seriously the longest time, but I just haven't felt like reading it at all. 

An unpublished book on your TBR that you're excited for?
  An unpublished book on my TBR that I'm excited for, is The Seeker, book two in The Host series, by Stephine Myer.  I would add a cover, but it hasn't been released yet!:(  However, I read The Host over a year ago, and remember that I enjoyed it, so I'm definitely excited to get re-accustomed to the series when the second book comes out. 

A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you?  
  Ahh this is a hard one!  I'm going to have to pick two.  Shatter Me, by Tahereh Mafi, and If I Stay, by Gayle Forman.  I still can't belieive I haven't read either of these.  I've heard beyond amazing things about Shatter Me, and even though I don't have much interest in reading If I Stay, I know I need to!

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends you?
 I have to go with, The Iron King, by Julie Kagawa.  My best friend and some blogging friends have been recommending it to me, but I haven't picked it up yet (even though it's on my shelf)!

A book on your TBR that you're dying to read?
  A book on my TBR that I'm dying to read, is The Outsiders, by S. E. Hinton.  I seriously need to read this book, and I want too sooo badly.  It's just that, whenever I go to pick it up, I find something else, then forget about it for the time being.  However, I'm planning on picking it up really soon and I'm so excited!

How many books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
  I don't update my Goodreads TBR shelf often - little to never.  This almost sounds embarrassing, but 30 TBR books in Goodreads as of now!  It's such a small amount and I need to update it, but I never do!

I'm going to tag the following:

Thanks again to Francoise for tagging me!


  1. I've been missing physical books a lot lately, so my print TBR has been increasing quite a bit this year. I still read mostly ebooks, though. :( Shatter Me is one of my favorites. I hope you end up liking it!

  2. Oh, and thank you for tagging me! I was tagged by someone else last month, so my post is already up:

  3. I didn't know the Host was getting a sequel - I liked that book!
    Thanks so much for stopping by! Jen @ YA Romantics

  4. I've tagged you in the Book Cake Challenge! Here's the info:

  5. Goodreads is really great for organization, I really should go through and organize my lists better sometime. I had to read The Outsiders for school but I remember actually enjoying it, for a school book ;) The Iron King was pretty good, so I can back up that recommendation!

  6. Thanks so much for doing the tag! Great answers. Love Letters to the Dead has a really pretty cover but the story is worth reading, I recommend it! Shatter Me is amazing you have to read it but not everyone loves it because of the weird writing style. If I Stay is ok but it's not the best but thats just my opinion. I found it a little slow paced is all. Don't worry I haven't read The Iron King either, maybe we should do a buddy read!

    1. We should totally do a buddy read! It'd inspire me to read Iron King ;)

  7. I love this tag! I'm totally going to have to do it sometime. Iron Fey is amazing.. btw! Read it, you will not regret it. Plus there's three more in the series after the first one, and the series is kind of finished, so no cliffhangers (:
    Good luck and I hope you enjoy it!
