Today I’ll be doing a book tag inspired by every reader’s best friend and worst enemy: the TBR pile. For anyone who’s new to the book community, TBR stands for to-be-read.
How do you keep track of your TBR? I used to create a TBR list in Microsoft Excel, but since 2015, I’ve been using Goodreads. Besides checking off books on the site, I like to print out my TBR and cross off what I’ve read.
Is your TBR mostly print or ebook? All print. E-books just aren’t my thing.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next? I’m definitely a mood reader, but I try to read my ARCs (advanced readers copies) before release date, and if one of my most anticipated releases has just come out (thinking back to May with A Court of Wings and Ruin), I pick it up almost immediately.
A Book That’s Been on Your TBR The Longest: 172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad—I think this has been on my list since 2015!
A Book You Recently Added to Your TBR: The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe
A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading: I do a pretty good job of making sure that there aren’t books on my TBR that I’m really not going to get to, but I’m going to go with The One We Fell in Love With by Paige Toon, mainly because it’s hard to find some of her books in the US, especially in my local library system.
An Unpublished Book On Your TBR That You’re Excited For: Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu
A Book On Your TBR That Basically Everyone’s Read But You: The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1) by Rick Riordan. I plan on reading The Sword of Summer soon, as the last book in the trilogy comes out in October.
A Book On Your TBR That Everyone Recommends to You: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
A Book On Your TBR That You’re Dying To Read: Solitaire by Alice Oseman. I loved Radio Silence, so I am excited to pick up her debut novel.
