The TBR Book Tag

Thank you so much to Dawlyn and Krista over  @ Little Blind Book Finds to do the TBR Book Tag. Be sure to check them out and give their blog some love! Without further ado, here are the questions:

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

Goodreads, for sure. I always try to remember (in my head) which books I want to read, but there are so many that Goodreads is definitely the best way for me to keep track of them all. As long as I remember to add them in the first place.

Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?

Oh gosh, a mix of both. Normally, I’d prefer for it to be physical but I spent the last two years relying on the electronic copies so I think I have more of those at the moment.

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

I’m definitely a mood reader, so I usually just peruse my options until one calls to me. If a book is published, then that might be the one I pick up.

A book that’s been on your TBR the longest?

According to Goodreads, that would be The Princess Bride by William Goldman, which I added in 2010.

A book that you recently added to your TBR?

The most recent book on my Goodreads TBR is Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali.

A book on your TBR strictly because it has a beautiful cover?

I have no idea…

A book on your TBR that you NEVER plan on actually reading?

Why would you put a book on your TBR that you don’t plan to read? That sounds silly.

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?

Wonder Woman: Warbring by Leigh Bardugo is a book that I’ve been looking forward to all year.

A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you?

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee – it looks so good but I haven’t read it yet. Spoiler warning, I’m pretty sure it’s in this month’s Owlcrate (which I subscribed to) so I’ve just been waiting to get my copy before I read it. (Although I have gotten a wee bit impatient and requested both the book and the audiobook from my library because I don’t have it yet.)

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs probably.

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

That would definitely be Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor.

The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?



I’m not going to be tagging anyone specific because I have a lot of tags/awards to post and don’t want to inundate you guys with tags – but feel free to do this one if it interests you and let me know if you do!


Thanks for reading my post and be sure to let me know what you think in the comments below!

    Being a mood reader is so hard! There’s always the struggle between the books I want to read and the books I’m in the mood for! Awesome tag 🙂

    I thought that the same thing about why would someone put a book they’re never going to read on their TBR? XD It’s such an odd question, but maybe they know something we don’t? Maybe it’s a trend we have somehow missed, Kyera?? XD And being a mood reader is always fun – in the sarcastic and non-sarcastic forms of the word. XD And ahhhhhh for Gentlemen. CanNOT wait to see your thoughts on it!! ❤ Wonderful post, Kyera!!

      It’s probably some strange hipster book trend that we missed, you’re right.

    576?! Yikes!! That’s a lot of books 😂 I’m a mood reader too which makes picking the next book so hard. There are so many I want to get to but it doesn’t feel like the right time. Then I pick up the book I feel like reading and dream of the books I want to read. Vicious cycle!

      Yeah… the only way I console myself is to see that I have more books on my read shelf than want to read. It gives me faith that I’ll get to them eventually. It totally is a vicious cycle!
