The TBR Book Tag

Rachel Recommends (1).png

I was tagged by Dawlyn and Krista from Little Blind Book Finds. They are funny and clever so go check them out!

I also want to take this moment to say that I’ve reached 25 subscribers in less than a month! It’s not a lot, but it’s way more people reading my blog posts than I ever imagined, so thank you so much!

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

Well, I’m pretty new to the book community. I didn’t even know what TBR meant (it means to be read if you are like me) until May. So my TBR pile isn’t ginormous, but mostly I have a Goodreads list that helps me keep track of all the books I want to read at some point. Then I decide what I want to read the next month and put it on a little notepad widget on my laptop home-screen.

Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?

Well, since I have 200+ e-books probably e-books. I do have a few physical books that I want to read but mostly e-books.

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?

It’s a gut feeling. Or I get in the mood to read a certain book. Right now I’m trying to finish all Cassandra Clare’s books because one day I was being ambitious and had an inkling for urban fantasy. I don’t put too much pressure on myself to finish books on my TBR list, I just read what I want to read and check it off as I go.

A book that’s been on your TBR the longest?

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee


A book that you recently added to your TBR?

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard


A book on your TBR strictly because it has a beautiful cover?

I have two for this (I’m shallow sue me) because I just love these covers and can’t wait to read them because I’ve heard great things about them….. and because I just want to stare at those covers all day.

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor


All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater


This is seriously my favorite cover of all time. IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL IT IS RELEASED!

A book on your TBR that you NEVER plan on actually reading?

Beartown by Fredrik Backman


I think I just liked the cover so I put it on the list- but the synopsis doesn’t sound interesting.

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?

Warcross by Marie Lu


It comes out in September and I’m so super excited to read it. It gives me major Ready Player One vibes.

A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you?

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.

This story sounds like something I would love, but I just haven’t gotten the chance to actually pick it up and read it yet.

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black


AND Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo


A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read?

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

I want to read it so stinking bad!

The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

150 whole books. I’m drowning. Please save me.


On another note, I actually like having a long TBR. I’d rather have so many books to read that I don’t know what to do with myself- than have no books to read at all. 🙂

  1. Thanks for the tag Rachel!!! I’m super-dee-duper stoked to do this, given that my TBR is definitely a monstrous tornado of books *eek*.
    Congrats on the 25 subscribers, that’s definitely an impressive number given that you’ve only been with us for about a month. Likewise, I’m pretty new to the book community here on wordpress as well (just a little under 2 months), but have thoroughly been enjoying it thus far.
    OMG you’re right, the Strange the Dreamer cover is so so SO pretty!
