Guess what! This book tag actually came to me in the normal way, i.e. I was actually tagged by someone! Shout out and a thank you to Dee at the Bookish Khaleesi :) I'm really happy I was tagged officially by Dee, because I hadn't seen it before and it looked really fun. So now, all the details about my TBR...


How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

Poorly. I have random stacks of actual books piled around my room. (I have this weird rule about giving a "spot" on my small bookshelves to books I haven't read yet. Thus, the piles). Not even counting my massive mental/Goodreads list of books I think sound really good. And then all my NetGalley books.... Yikes, I should probably look at all of those.


Is your TBR mostly print or electronic?

Well, as I just mentioned, I'm really bad at actually keeping up with TBR effectively. But the list is largely electronic. I don't actually have that many physical books that I haven't read, simply because I don't want to spend actual $$ on something I don't already know I like.


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

Excellent question. It depends on what I'm in the mood for, what's readily available, and if I plan to review it or not. I wish I could say I respect the TBR and read the books in the order I added them, but I don't do that. That speaks of a level of organization that doesn't exist for my type B personality type over here.


Which book has been on your TBR list the longest?

According to Goodreads (I had to check), the first book I ever added to my TBR list was: Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi back in April 2012. (I still haven't read it obviously, sorry little guy).


A book you've recently added to your TBR?

Again, according to Goodreads, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I've seen a lot of hype about this book and the blurb is definitely intriguing enough to spark my interest! It definitely sounds like an interesting read. It'll just depend on that weird process I described above for selecting it to read...


A book on your TBR strictly because of the beautiful cover?

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. It's so beautiful!!


A book on your TBR that you don't actually plan to read?

Unwanteds by Lisa McMann. It's been on my TBR almost as long as Under the Never Sky (how random that they both start with a U? I feel like that's a rare book title letter), but I keep pushing it off. I just have some block towards actually picking it up.


An unpublished book on your TBR that you're excited for?

Three guesses for this one, and the first two don't count. Yep, you guessed it! That would be Winter by Marissa Meyer, the Lunar Chronicles fourth book.


A book on your TBR that everyone has read but you?

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. This book is one of those that isn't in your face, but so many people have read it and loved it. I will read it (eventually) and I really want to read it, but I just haven't yet!! Too many books!


A book on your TBR that everyone recommends?

I have seen very few people dislike A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray which is always a good indicator!


A book on your TBR that you're dying to read?

I'm only dying to read the ones that aren't published yet. Winter & An Ember in the Ashes #2 are probably the ones I'm most looking forward to right now though.


How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

Good thing I've still got that tab open. That would be a grand total of 131. But I'm really bad at keeping that bad boy up to date, so that's a low ball.
