TBR Book Tag

I was tagged by Lucy at Things Lucy Reads and Eve at Functioning Insanity for this awesome tag. Thank you both so much. Sorry it took me a while to get to it. 

How do you keep track of your TBR pile? 
I try to update my Goodreads as often as possible. However, I also keep a color coordinated excel spreadsheet that identifies which format I own for each book (hardcover, paperback, or ebook). I found this to be more useful as I sometimes have a book in multiple formats. :)

Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?
I think it’s pretty even between the two. While I prefer physical books, I like being able to carry multiple books at once on my Kindle, especially when I travel. For example, this week I’ll be going to a conference in Connecticut and I’ll probably have additional reading time each night in my hotel room. So I made sure to download lots of goodies to my Kindle.

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
Mostly mood and read-alongs that I want to participate in. I do try my hardest to prioritize all ARCs I receive because I want to give them the attention they deserve.

A book that's been on your TBR list the longest?
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. This book as released in 2010 and I bought the complete series sometime in 2013, but I never got around to reading them. I really hope to get to them soon.

A book on your TBR strictly because of the beautiful cover?
I don’t think I have any books that are on my TBR just because of the cover; I will pick up a book because the cover appeals to me, but the description has to appeal to me as well in order for me to make the purchase or add it to my TBR.

A book you recently added to your TBR?
Air Awakens by Elisa Kova.

A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?
Never say never, but right now, I have no plans on reading the Need series by Carrie Jones, even tough I own a couple of the ebooks.

A book on your TBR that everyone has read but you?
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows. I need to read these ASAP!

A book on your TBR that you're dying to read?
The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard.

An unpublished book on your TBR that you're excited for?
There is no way I can choose just one, so here are a couple that I am dying to read as soon as they are released: Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch, Winter by Marissa Meyer, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, Carry On by Rainbow Rowell, The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh, The Rose Society by Marie Lu, and A Torch Against The Night by Sabaa Tahir.

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?
The Legend series by Marie Lu. I actually read the first book in the series when I was hoping to attend YALLFest. There were so many authors attending, so I started reading the first books in many series just to make sure I read at least one book for each author I was palling to meet. I am still trying to finish reading those series, and Legend is one of them. I can’t wait to get to read Prodigy and Champion. I really loved Legend.

How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
As of right now 209. Dang it! That’s a lot and it keeps on growing.

My Nominations:
Kristianna @ Downright Dystopian
Barb @ Booker T’s Farm @ Books and Nails and PuppyDog Tales 


  1. I don't have an e-book list yet. I do have a list of all of my physical copies though just haven't decided to dedicate the time to the e-book one yet it will take some hours away from reading lol. So many good books but I love our read-alongs and think they do keep you moving for sure. Helps keep me from TV marathons for days on end knowing I need to read my section to discuss!

  2. I just added this to my blog. Thanks for the tag!
