I saw this tag over on Dana's blog some time ago. I've thought about doing it, and I finally decided to just give it a go. I was not tagged by anybody (that I know of), but oh well. The tag is created by Dana from Danasquare and Rachel from A Perfection Called Books.
Also, I realize that I should probably start writing up reviews, but I just haven't been able to get my thought down in writing. They will be here - eventually.
I used to use notebooks, but I have a tendency to throw those away, so that didn't work at all. I've tried to use Goodreads, but that ended in an even bigger mess than the notebooks. Finally I just made a document in google docs, and that's been working amazing for me.
Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
I'm not really sure. I think most of my TBR books are actually ebooks. However, that might be because that thing is still new to me, so I went a little ebook crazy, and therefore I have a ton of unread books on that thing.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
It all depends on my mood, really. I just pick up whatever sounds good at the moment.
Oh dear, that's a good question. Not that long ago, I wiped my entire goodreads to read list (mostly in anger - there was way too much shit on it), so I can't really remember when it comes to that. But I think Now You See Me by S. J. Bolton is one of the books that's been on my list for a million years - like since 2011. Whoops!
A Book You Recently Added To Your TBR
Life in Outer Space by Melissa Keil. I was just browsing around the internet and somehow this popped up, and it sounded really interesting. So, I thought why not, and threw it onto my TBR list - both on my google doc and my goodreads (this is serious business people)
A Book In Your TBR Strictly Because Of Its Beautiful Cover
Do I think this cover is beautiful? Yes. Does the plot sound interesting? Why yes it does. But honestly, the cover drew me to this one. I was just browsing around goodreads, as one tend to do, I saw this cover, and I knew I had to have this book - plot be damned. Sadly it's not in my possession just yet, but I hope it will be very soon.
A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading
It'll probably end up being one of the free ebooks I got when I first got my eReader. Not that I don't think they'll be good, but because some of them don't really interest me all that much. But I have a tendency to download books to my eReader anyway if they are free.
An Unpublished Book On Your TBR That You’re Excited For
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. I'm ridiculously excited for this book. April 2015 is so far away, and I can't wait for this to hit the shelves. Also honorable mention to None of the Above by I. W. Gregorio, which I'm just as excited about, maybe actually a little more than the other one. Nonetheless, I really, really want to read both of these book.
A Book On Your TBR That Basically Everyone’s Read But You
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I know, I'm sorry. I feel like everyone and their mother has read this one, and I'm sitting in the background trying not to get spoiled. I have the book, I just haven't been in the mood for it. However, I will eventually pick it up.
A Book On Your TBR That Everyone Recommends To You
Well, again I think that would be Throne of Glass once again. It's a book that people are basically throwing at me, telling me that I need to read it. Again, I will get to it at some point. I hope.
A Book On Your TBR That You’re Dying To Read
One book? Well, I'm mostly dying to read all of them, but one book in particular would be Something Like Autumn, the 3rd book in the Seasons series by Jay Bell. I just need to read this book soon. Actually I need to get my hands on the book first, but then I need to read it.
How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
It currently has 38 book on it. Again, I don't really like using goodreads for things like that, because I know that I'll end up with a million books there in no time. It will be chaos. Chaos I tell you! However, I do use it sometimes if I just don't want to forget about a book, and don't want to find my google document.
So, that was the TBR Tag. I'm not actually going to tag anybody, actually I think most people have done it by now - I'm just late. But if you've done it, please link it below, because I'd love to see what you've written.
