I found this little tag from one of my blogger friends, Amanda who owns ChocolatePages! A “to be read” next tag for book lovers! I saw it and knew I was going to have to do it too! Sadly though, I haven’t been reading at all lately like maybe I’d like to, but I still saw the fun in this tag so I’m doing it! Hope you enjoy!
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
I use a site called Shelfair. I found it from another friend (who also is named Amanda!) and she showed it to me a week or two after I got my Kindle I think. I’ve had it for a few years and I really love it! It’s got quite a few features to help you keep track of your TBR, what you’ve already read, and etc. I also have two boards on my Pinterest for the books I’ve read and ones I want to read next too.
Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?
I like to use both print and e-books, but I have and get more e-books because they are easier for me to get than getting out.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I go through my TBR list a few times and kind of narrow it down from 4,3, 2, and then one. I haven’t done that in a while, I’ve been spending a lot of my time in the free section for e-books so that kind of makes things easier to select from.
A book that’s been on your TBR list the longest.
In 2011, I was in a deep rock band craze and had been reading both Nikki Sixx books and Duff McKagan’s memoir. I still have Tommy Lee’s memoir “Tommyland” and Storm Large’s “Crazy Enough” they are the oldest books on my to be read next list.
A book you recently added to your TBR?
I am really obsessed with historical fiction, mainly anything from Marie Antoinette, Henry VIII, and Queen Elizabeth I time frame. So the most recently added book is The Wives Of Henry VIII by Antonia Fraser. Because you can never hear enough information about The Tudors.
A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover?
This is actually really difficult to decide because I am awful about picking books just for their gorgeous covers! I just can’t have one book for this question sorry! The first is The Selection by Kiera Cross, Fallen by Katie Barber and lastly Rage by Jackie Morse Kessler.
A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?
Probably the Dracula book I’ve decided to add during a very weird week a few months ago.
An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?
I haven’t been checking on books to be released soon in a really long time! So I don’t have one.
A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you?
I don’t think I have any books on my TBR list that everybody’s read but me. Which is a surprise!
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?
My friend Candice of All That Glitters has recommended quite a few books to me. I think she’s the one who got How To Build A Girl by Caitlin Moran on my TBR list after reading a blog post of what she was loving, but it was several months ago, I could have the wrong book!
A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read?
Ooh! Well once I get through this last book in my Kindle I’d like to read Never Have I Ever by Katie Heaney and My Soon-To-Be Sex Life by Judith Tewes. I’ve read their descriptions and they both sound kind of hilarious!
How many books are on your TBR list?
I have a total of 105 books as of right now.
