Well, well, well, what do we have here? An old friend of us all, bookdragons: The TBR. Or should I say frennemy? Because while it keeps our book hunger/craze satisfied it also sends us into bankrupty, and even the hospital if it ever falls on ours heads and breaks our necks or give so some kind of concussion. All of this being said, we love it immensely and all the danger and sense of adventure it brings. I’ll teach you all my TBR ways in today’s tag which the TBR tag (duh)
I was tagged to do this by Isabella @ Bookish Youth a gazillion years ago so thank you! And sorry for taking so long, life happened!
Book Cover = Goodreads
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Goodreads is my best friend when it comes to this. Aside from the books I REALLY want to read which I always remember, it is the only thing that works on my extensive TBR. Though my immediate -monthly- TBR is always on my phone, organized in a sort of to-do list in which I get to check off every book I read as the month goes by.
Is your TBR mostly print or eBook?
Ebooks. And by now you all already know why that is but if you’re new around her, first of all welcome, and I mainly read ebooks because of cost and availability of books in this awesome country I live in. (Sense the sarcasm? Sense how frustrated this topic makes me?)
A book/s that has been on your TBR pile the longest:
Wait a second *checks virtual bookshelves*. Apparently, it is We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. I wouldn’t say I lost interest in this book. But I kind of did. Not completely, I just never feels like the right time and other books keep being prioritized, though I might get to it if I’m ever in the mood of a book of that sort.
A book you recently added to your TBR pile:
The 40 Rules of Love by Elif Shafak. I miraculously snatched a stunning physical copy of this one a couple of weeks ago at the bookstore I wrote a post about a while back. I’m so in love with it and cannot wait to read it which is probably very soon because I won’t be able to stay away from it much longer especially considering the amount of great things I heard about it.
A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover:
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray. What can I say? That cover is perfect and I’m a sucker for all things pretty! It might seriuosly be the most beautiful cover I’ve ever seen. If you know of any covers that can compete with it, let me know so I can see if they can beat it for me.
A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading:
I really don’t know about this one. I went over my TBR twice and there wasn’t a single book for which I said I will never read it, because even though I’m not in the mood for it now, the synopsis gets me reinterested right away and I go back into thinking I will eventually get to it. Though, a book that WAS on it and has been removed since, is Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I wasn’t seeing myself EVER reading it so I gave it up.
An unpublished book that you are excited for:
There are a lot. And when I say a lot, I mean A HECK OF A LOT. Can I say all of them? No? Okay, fine. One that has caught my attention a week or so ago is A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard and I cannot wait for it to come out because the blurb is really interesting and it has picked my curiosity.
A book on your TBR that everyone has read but you:
ALL THE BOOKS? I have a really large list of them, because I basically read none of the popular books until this year but one that I’m really smacking myself across the face for is This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. My favorite author for God’s sake and I yet have to read it. Shame on me. I EVEN HAVE IT!! I really don’t know what got to me to make me wait this long. I shall find a remedy. Soon!
A book on your TBR everyone has recommended to you that you are dying to read:
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I’m still waiting for my damn physical copy to arrive. The new arrival date is set to November 2nd so it’s pretty soon and it’ll hopefully get here on time and with no hiccups because I seriously cannot wait anymore. I NEED IT NOW!
