I saw it right after Christmas and since I am always eager to talk about my massive TBR I made sure to save it for a later date which is NOW.
To preface this, I have two TBRs- all the books I want to read in my life (kept track of on Goodreads) and my physical TBR – all the books I own, but have not read. I’ll try to be clear which I am talking about in my answers.
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Thanks to Goodreads, but like honestly I just sort of pick up books whenever I’m feeling it. Or the stacks around my room of unread books staring at me. So long story short, not well.
Is your TBR mostly print or ebooks?
Print! I have some eARCS that are on the TBR and very few ebooks.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I am such a mood reader that I just sort of look around my room to see if a book catches me eye or a scroll through my eLibrary to see if I have something checked out that I want to read. Pre-pandemic I would always have at least five library books checked out so I would prioritize those, but now it’s really up in the air.
A book that’s been on your TBR the longest.
I’ve been on Goodreads since 2013 and the book that has been on my TBR since is Persuasion by Jane Austen. Look one day I’ll read more Austen, but today is not that day.
A book you recently added to your TBR.
A book that is on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover.
Oooofff I am called out with this question. I try to focus on if I think I’ll actually enjoy a book and a pretty cover is just a bonus, but I added The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He in part because I want to support her and in part because the cover is STUNNING.
A book on your TBR you NEVER plan on actually reading.
So if I don’t plan on reading a book I’ll remove it from my TBR. I don’t have time for books I’m not interested in, my TBR is already massive enough. I remove books from my TBR pretty frequently either by deleting them off Goodreads or unhauling them.
An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.
A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you.
Everyone read The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue last year and I really want to read it, but I’m waiting for my library hold to come in. (edit: since writing this in December 2020, I have read this one, I enjoyed it, but I gave it 3.5/5 stars)
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.
Bree has been badgering my to read The Female of the Species for years. She even bought me a copy of it for my birthday. Will this be the year I read it? Maybe so.
A book on your TBR you’re just dying to read.
The number of books on your GoodReads TBR shelf.
This is embarrassing. But, 1124 as of January 30, 2021.
What is your TBR like?
Thanks for reading!
