Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Each month, I talk about making my way through my tags and then the cycle starts all over again. I’m just thankful that people are tagging me in things as I remember a time when that never happened or rarely happened. I’m done with my sad stuff so let’s get into this tag!
I was tagged by Sara of The Bibliophagist. I haven’t been following Sara long, but she’s one of my favorite bloggers. She reads a wide array of books including romance so I’ve already gotten some recs from her. She’s also such a sweet and lovely person so be sure to check her out ❤
1. How do you keep track of your TBR list?
I don’t really keep track of my TBR if I’m being honest. I usually just write up monthly TBRs and I don’t want to clutter my Goodreads too much. However, I do make little notes on my phone, save posts or just look up books if they sound interesting to me.
I know that’s probably an unusual answer, but I don’t really keep a huge list. I feel like it’s always changing and I like to mix it up instead of being tied down to certain books.
2. Is your TBR mostly print or e-books?
Right now, it’s almost all print. I ended up acquiring quite a few books in September including preorders so I have a physical TBR. It’s kind of strange to think because I’m not one to really spend money unless I absolutely have to, lol.
3. How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I don’t really have a system. I mostly just pick one on a whim if it’s on my monthly TBR or if the premise sounds interesting. I feel like I’m being super nonchalant in this tag but I basically read whatever I want. 😛
4. A book that has been on your TBR the longest
I’m so mad at myself for not reading this book! I’ve had a copy of it for years but have yet to pick it up. Even after Ali died, I still didn’t pick it up but maybe I’ll get to it soon. It only covers a certain period in his life but I’d love to learn more.
5. A book that you recently added to your TBR
I think I was watching a vlog and a booktuber mentioned this book. Either way, I loved If You Come Softly by Jacqueline Woodson and I’m excited to read more from her. I think this is her newest release and I’m hoping I can find it via my library or in the store for a decent price.
6. A book on your TBR list strictly because of its beautiful cover
Every time I see this book in Barnes & Noble, I just stare at it. I don’t know anything about it but I just want to read it?? I also just want to have it on my shelves so I don’t know. Maybe I’ll read it, maybe not lol.
7. A book on your TBR that you never plan on actually reading
I can’t really think of an answer to this! I don’t have a book or books on my shelves that I haven’t read or don’t plan on reading lol.
8. An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for
- Famous in A Small Town by Emma Mills
- My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren
- Superman: Dawnbreaker by Matt De La Pena
Surprisingly, I featured one YA, one adult and one from a series I enjoy 🙂
9. A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you
10. A book on your TBR everyone recommends you
Everyone in the blogging world and booktube is loving this book! Every time I mention it or ask about it on a post, someone is quick to recommend it to me. I’ve just been holding out to either get the audiobook or get my own physical copy. Maybe by the time this post is up, I’ll have it lol.
11. A book on your TBR you’re very excited to read
Since this book isn’t on my main bookshelf, I forgot about it! When I was looking, I noticed it and remembered my excitement around it. I’ve heard people raving about how this is an amazing romance and it was incredibly cheap. I just have yet to pick it up since I bought in August but hopefully, I’ll get to it before the end of the year 🙂
12. The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf
Right now, 5. By the time this post goes up, a few should be off there as I plan/planned on reading them this month.
Normally, I’d tag a few people but I’m about half-asleep. I’m writing this post at the end of September and I got off work at 9 and it’s almost 11 now, lol. I’m just ready to sleep so I’ll get them next time 😛
Do you have any books I recommended on your TBR? I’d love to hear!
