How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Taking care of my TBR pile is a little bit of a mess and scattered in different places. I have so many TBR lists that probably have different books on each list. I want to read all the books. However, when it comes to my monthly TBR's I am slightly more organized.
Mostly, I have my new reading journal, which I haven't done too much in since it's still the first week of January. Here is a small example of how I set up my TBR in my journal. Also, look at how much I think I am going to read this month, wish me luck because 10 books in one month used to be my normal, but I am just getting out of a slump! Phew.
I also use my notepad app. Most of the time I will write something in my notepad app and then once I can get to my journal I will copy it into my journal.
Is your TBR mostly print or ebook? What book has been on your TBR the longest?
This changes monthly. Right now, from the list I put above it is mostly physical copies. However, for my reading goals as a whole for this year it's mostly e-books.
What book did you most recently add to your TBR?
I just added Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick. I got it today when my boyfriend saw it at our local library and knew I wanted to read it. I love Anna Kendrick so much so I am so excited to learn more about her life. I know she's from Maine (as am I) so it's always fun to learn about a successful person from your home state.
What book did you add to your TBR strictly because of the cover?
I haven't done this in a while, however I recently put Passenger by Alexandra Bracken on my kindle because I saw that it had a cheap deal and the cover caught my eye. I don't even know much about the plot so hopefully I am into it.
What book on your TBR do you never plan on actually reading?
I am hoping to read the entire list I posted above. My Goodreads TBR is a complete mess. It's books that sound interesting, but I only own less than half. My notepad app and the list in my journal are my realistic TBRs that I plan on reading ASAP.
What unpublished book do you have on your TBR that you are excited about?
I am most excited about the two books:
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
I am excited to see how the ACOTAR series ends, and I have heard so many great things about The Hate U Give that I just need to get my hands on it. Plus I love the cover.
What book on your TBR has seemingly everyone read except for you?
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is a book everyone has not only loved, but there's even been a movie! I have watched the movie, and I really loved it. The book has been sitting on my shelf for years now and I still haven't picked it up.
What book on your TBR has everyone recommended to you?
I have a few bookish friends so most of the time I am not recommended books, however one I was recently recommended is The Princess Saves Herself in this One by Amanda Lovelace
What book on your TBR are you dying to read?
I am really excited to read the Falling Kingdom series by Morgan Rhodes. I own the first three books, I have read the first one twice, and then I didn't continue which had nothing to do with the series and everything to do with me just not continuing it. I don't even have a real reason since I really enjoyed the first book. Now that both my reading buddy and I have the first book I will be reading it again with her to refresh myself and then I am going to continue with the series! Maybe even catch up!
How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
I have 370 books on my TBR shelf on Goodreads and that is after I have cleaned it up. Like I said early, I also probably don't own half of the books on my shelf. I just have so much book envy. I am hoping to go through it this year and actually knock books off my TBR.
