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 😄 I’m like, “Here, pick a book!”
A book that’s been on your TBR the longest?
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
The 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?
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!
