TBR Tag!

Hey, guys 😀 The lovely Nirvana @ Nirvana’s Pocketful tagged me to do this tag forever ago, and I literally have a list beside me of all of the posts I need to write xD Anyway… better late than never, right?  Let’s get started.

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

When I was a newbie (around June of 2012), I would make lists of series that I wanted to check out, but then I joined Goodreads and just started keeping track of my TBR digitally.  I’m a list person (see intro XD), so I would literally end up with a billion lists that had just… accumulated.  But they were pretty much lists of the same books.  For some reason, I felt the need to have multiple copies of these lists xD

Is your TBR mostly print books or e-books?

Definitely physical copies.  I don’t read e-books well, and there are only a few that I’ve actually successfully finished.  For some reason, reading off a device bores me!

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

Uhh… heh.  I kind of panic about it for a couple days because I’m a really indecisive person.  And then I made my TBR wine glass for the unread books I actually own, but I kept forgetting to update it every time I bought a new book… so, uh, I really don’t know how I choose.  Sometimes I make other people choose for me XD I’m like, “Here, pick a book!”

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

*consults Goodreads*

This comes as a surprise to me, but the book that’s been on my TBR the longest is The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman.  I tried reading this book and watching the movie, but I couldn’t get into it.  It’s the very first book I put on my GR TBR, and that was March 26, 2013.

A book you recently added to your TBR?

Snail Mail, No More by Paula Danziger.  I read the first book in this series a long time ago, and it was cowritten with Ann M. Martin, which is why I was interested.  Anyway, I just recently (December) found out that there was a sequel and I was just like OMG NO WAY.  I’m definitely going to get this from the library soon!

A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover?

I don’t think any of us pay attention to the “don’t judge a book by its cover” advice… at least in the literal sense xD

HaloThe book is Halo by Alexandra Adornetto.  Have I thought about this book ever in the past year and a half?  No… Have I thought of this author ever in the past year and a half?  Uh… no… Do I know what this book is about?

*crickets chirp*

Because this book was only added to my TBR because of its AMAZING cover.  I mean, look at that!  Look at that.

A book on your TBR you never plan on reading?

*cough* The Golden Compass *cough*

An unpublished book in your TBR that you’re excited to read?

MAGNUS CHASE.  And Frozen Hearts by Topaz Winters 😀 I’m really excited for that one.

A book in your TBR everyone recommends to you?

You can probably guess this one: Throne of Glass.  EVERYONE tells me to read it.  I own it.  It’s sitting on my shelf as we speak… er… read.  In fact, I can see it now.  But have I picked it up?  Nu.  I mean, I read about fifteen pages, but I wasn’t into it so I just started something else xD

Number of books in your TBR?

You ready for this, guys?  Haha, no, I don’t think you are.

There are 472 books in my TBR.  There!  I said it!  *hides*

I have a problem xD

But, you know what?  If I could read roughly 100 books in a year, I could get my TBR finished in five years.  Unless I add more to it.  Ugh.

I’m tagging whoever sees this and thinks it’s interesting, because it’s late (or rather, early xD) and I don’t feel like chasing down ze links!  Thanks again to Nirvana for tagging me 😀 I have some more posts planned, so keep an eye out for those!

  1. READ THRONE OF GLASS! Haha that series is perfection! I read Halo a while back and it’s basically about angels who come to earth and one falls in love with a human and then there are things trying to kill them for one reason or another… it was okay… but maybe you’ll like it! Awesome post!

  2. I don’t blame you about falling into cover-lust with Halo. I bought it right when it came out for that reason…and was honestly pretty disappointed by it. I’m a bit more weary of pretty covers now because of it!


  3. I like your method of picking out a book to read from your TBR. I’m so indecisive too. I just end up staring at my shelf saying that one looks good and that one, but so does that one, haha.

    I did the same thing with Throne of Glass. I’m finally reading it now, but it took me forever to start.

    Sadly, you’re not the only one with a super huge TBR. I would say I have about 400-500 myself. I’m too scared to actually count them, haha.


    1. Thanks! And yeah, I probably spend more time trying to pick a book than I do actually reading. How are you liking Throne of Glass? I wasn’t too impressed, but I only read the first fifteen pages, so I don’t think I could have come up with a proper opinion after reading so little.

      Ahh, the curse of the never-ending TBR. Hopefully you can get through yours!

      1. I’m on page 248 of Throne of Glass, and so far, it’s ok. It has it’s good moments that I enjoy, but I don’t feel it lives up to the hype. I might change my mind when I finish, but it doesn’t seem to be improving. If you make it farther in, I would love to know what your thoughts are on it. 🙂


  4. Throne of Glass was okayish in my opinion, but the second and third books was just OH. MY. GOD. It really starts to improve and I like Celeana better XD

    That TBR pile *cough* mountain will never end. The moment I finish a book and log onto Goodreads I find yet another book to add and, well…the temptation is too much to resist. Oh, THE PRETTY COVERS AND BLURBS DRIPPING AWESOME AND AND…>.<
