I saw this tag over on The Book Prescription and it sounds fun so I’ve decided to give it a go! I’m not sure who created the tag, so if anyone knows, please leave me a comment!
How do you keep track for your TBR pile?
I add the books on my TBR to my “Want To Read” shelf on Goodreads as soon as I buy or borrow them – it helps to keep all my TBR listed on here, otherwise I’d never read some of them!
If I can, I try to add them by scanning the barcode on the back of the book or by searching by the ISBN so that I’m adding the version I will read to my TBR.
Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
Currently, there is only one ebook on my TBR and all the others are print. I like to have an ebook on loan from the library to read out and about but I’m trying to get through the books I bought/received in December before I borrow any more!
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I’m very much a mood reader and just pick whichever I feel like reading next, unless I’m in the middle of a series, in which case I usually read the next book.
A book that’s been on your TBR the longest
I didn’t even need to check my Goodreads to know that this is Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Illustrated Short Stories by Arthur Conan Doyle! I added this to my TBR on 5th November 2016 and still haven’t gotten round to reading it…
A book that you recently added to your TBR
I’m really looking forward to reading this one!
A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover
This is definitely my copy of How Watson Learned the Trick by Arthur Conan Doyle. It was written for the Library of Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House in 1922 and it’s a really beautiful edition. I actually spotted it in a book sale New Years’ Eve 2018 and had to buy it!
A book on your TBR that you NEVER plan on actually reading
A Winter Flame by Milly Johnson. I originally bought this book because it was the only one of Milly Johnson’s books that had a season in the title that I hadn’t read and I wanted the full set; plus I am a big fan of her novels so I was fairly certain I’d like it. Unfortunately, I started it and wasn’t a fan of the storyline and so put it back on my TBR and now I’m pretty sure I’ll never actually read it.
An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for
I don’t add books to my TBR until I have a copy in my possession, but I do want to read Good Gi, Bad Blood by Holly Jackson when it is published. I’ll be buying it and adding it to my TBR as soon as I can!
A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you
This seems to be The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. Everyone else seems to have read it and while I do want to read it, I never seem to get around to it.
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you
I only recently added it to my TBR, but The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren is definitely the book on my current TBR that I’ve had the most recommendations of.
A book on your TBR that you’re just dying to read
I’m really looking forward to reading This Is Going To Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor by Adam Kay. I’ve heard so many people talking about it and seen it added to quite a number of peoples’ “Best Books of the Year” posts that I can’t wait to read it!
The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf
Currently, this sits at 45 books, although this will probably go up again!
I would like to nominate the following blogs to take part in this tag!
