Happy Friday everyone :) I was recently tagged by the lovely ladies at Readers in Wonderland to do the To-Be-Read (TBR) book tag post. Yay for more bookish tag fun!! Considering I've been dragging my feet with posting more personal content on the blog, these have worked out perfectly for me! Keep 'em coming ;) I do hope that my readers are enjoying these as much as I am though hehe
How do you keep track of your TBR Pile?
Well that depends if we're talking books to read that I already own -or- books to-be-read that I don't own yet. The TBR books that I do own now have their own bookcase now, it was unavoidable. >.< The rest get sorted through my various shelves on Goodreads (wishlist, to-be-released, to-read, etc...)
Is your TBR Pile mostly print or ebooks?
It's probably more print books now because of the two glorious years where I went to BEA. If not for that, things would probably be closer to 50/50.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I'm a huge mood-reader, so reading on any kind of a schedule equals reading slumps for this girl. I always have a pile of like 5-6 books on my bedside table that I know I want to read soon-ish, but other than that, I just go by whatever tickles my fancy.
What's been on your TBR the longest?
Well according to Goodreads, that honor goes to a few books actually - all added on the same date: The Count of Monte Cristo, The Mists of Avalon, Eragon and The DaVinci Code.
A book you recently added to your TBR
Well my shiny new hardback of Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas ♥ of course. Full disclosure: I got so excited when it was available for pre-order (even though I had a autographed, print arc) that I ordered it not once, but twice! Luckily I caught myself before the book came out and cancelled one of my pre-orders xD I'm planning on re-reading it soon so it totally counts as a TBR pick.
A book that's on your TBR strictly because of it's beautiful cover?
Yes...as much as I wish there wasn't, there is. Off the top of my head probably Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White though I'm sure there are others...
A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading
The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal. I've heard some truly odd things about this one. For real o.O And as much as I'm kind of curious I don't think I'll take the chance.
An unpublished book on your TBR that you're excited for
That would be Skybreaker, the upcoming 3rd book in Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archive Series. It doesn't have a cover yet so I don't have any prettiness to show you guys but since I just finished book 2 in the series, I added this one to my wishlist straight after.
Oh, and of course Throne of Glass # 4 by Sarah J. Maas - just thinking about those books gives me all the feelings.
A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you
Oh gosh, sometimes it seems like there are so many of these. The first ones that come to mind are Splintered by A.G. Howard and Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you
Definitely The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch but I own a copy now so that issue should resolve itself soon. (I promise!)
A book on your TBR that you're dying to read
The Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen (a recent acquisition - YAY me) & Zodiac by Romina Russell
How many books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
After multiple shelf cleanings on Goodreads my total stands at 609...and my greatest fear is that I will not be able to read all of them - PLUS the ones I'll be adding to that total - before I die.
