To-Be-Read Tag

This tag was created by Rachel @ A Perfection Called Books and Dana from Dana Square.
Thanks to Isabel @ Tween 2 Teen Book Reviews and Em @ The YA Book Butterfly for tagging me!

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
So usually, I use Goodreads, but sometimes I'll get lazy and won't. Then depending on the book, I may forget that I wanted to read it. But for the most part, I'm pretty good about keeping track on Goodreads. Then switching books to "read" is a whole other problem...

Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?
Definitely print! I mean, technically, I don't differentiate, but my default is almost always print anyway, with the exception of my large number of eARCs I haven't gotten around to yet...

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
It's different every time depending on the situation, but usually it's a mix of my mood, if it's a blog tour book or not, if it's a Lit Up Review Spotlight book (ahem I need to read Let's Get Lost for this month, and I still haven't started yet), and the release date of my ARCs. In terms of ARCs, I'm much more likely to prioritize paper ARCs than eARCs, unless it's a book I'm really excited for. I'm also the kind of person that starts a million books at once, so....

A Book That's Been on Your TBR List the Longest
In reality, I'm not really sure because the way I added them onto Goodreads doesn't necessarily reflect how long it had been that I wanted to read the book, but according to Goodreads, it's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (in my mind, it's definitely not that, but!).

OH! I found one that's been on my list for AGES (but isn't first on my Goodreads page). I wanted to read this book since I finished Fairest sometime in elementary school...I still haven't read it. Now, I don't know if I ever will. Maybe just for old time's sake. :)

A Book You Recently Added To Your TBR
According to Goodreads, one of my very latest additions is Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld. I kept hearing about it but didn't know what it was about. Then, the other day, I finally looked it up, and I was like I NEED THIS. ;)

A Book In Your TBR Strictly Because of Its Beautiful Cover
I don't think anything is on my TBR list just because of its cover, but. Okay, so here's one that I originally was interested in because of the cover. And THEN I got super interested because of the blurb.

An Unpublished Book That You're Excited For want me to pick JUST ONE??? Fine...this just one of many

A Book On Your TBR That Basically Everyone's Read But You
Probably most of them? ;P

A Book On Your TBR That Everyone Recommends To You
Besides those two up there (^), these two for sure! I really do mean to read them; I just haven't around to them yet.

A Book On Your TBR That You're Dying To Read
How about every single one of them? Okay fine, a snippet then: Echoes of Us, The Book Thief, Afterworlds, The Sky is Everywhere, Lola and the Boy Next Door + Isla and the Happily Ever After, Lies We Tell Ourselves, I'll Give You the Sun, The Start of Me and You, Salt & Stone, Snow Like Ashes, Red Queen, The Orphan Queen, The Broken Hearts' Society of Suite 17C, Under the Lights, Written in the Stars, The Girl at Midnight, A Thousand Pieces of You, Winterspell, Amy and Roger's Epic Detour, The Shadow Cabinet, A Darker Shade of Magic, No Place to Fall, The Hit List, AND MORE. Yup...*slinks away*

How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
533 on Goodreads, plus the ones I haven't put on Goodreads and the books I want to reread...

Now I'm tagging:


  1. Hey, I just stumbled upon this post (because I saw your tweet and it looked interesting) and apparently I was tagged! Thank you for that; I rarely get tagged for anything so this is exciting. :) And it looks like you have some great books listed, especially GRAVE MERCY which *ahemyoushouldreadasapahem* ;)

  2. I recently read Miss Peregrines House for Peculiar Children and it was definitely different! The Book Thief is amazing, and I enjoyed Grave Mercy....


Thanks for visiting and reading! I appreciate all comments, and I always comment back if I can. :)
