The TBR Tag

I was nominated by my beautiful friend Noriko to do this tag a while ago (sorry!) and I’m finally getting around to doing it. Thank you Noriko for making me think about dusting off my TBR shelf. One day I’ll actually do it 😉

Questions:

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

There’s no rhyme or reason to it cause I’m constantly adding to it. I have a list on Goodreads that mostly gets ignored.

Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?

Definitely ebook. I have this problem of downloading all the free books Bookbub and Instafreebie send me. I have a ridiculous amount of ebooks. If I had to guess a number, it’s probably upwards of 200 or more, no joke.

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

Depends on my mood. I usually go for fantasy, romance and sci-fi but once in a while I’ll throw in a contemporary or suspense novel.

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

According to Goodreads, there’s literally a whole page of books that have been on my TBR since Februrary 2015.

A book that you recently added to your TBR.

The Undying King by Grace Draven
30753120

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

Woodwalker by Emily Martin
27412184

A book on your TBR that you NEVER plan on actually reading.

Probably the remaining Study books. I hate when a series is picked up a million years later with very different cover art. Fire Study came out in 2008 and was a good end to the books in my opinion. Shadow Study came out in 2015! That’s a huge gap! I can’t do it. Plus I hate the covers.

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.

The Trouble with Twelfth Grave by Darynda Jones. I have my signed copy preordered 🙂
33574252

A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you.

A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet. I’m getting closer and closer to reading this! I’ve heard nothing but good things.

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.

Nobody’s recommended a book to me in a while so I’m going to pick Hexed by Kevin Hearne cause I read Hounded and really enjoyed it and would like to jump back into that series since I’ve heard it gets so much better!

A book on your TBR that you’re just dying to read.

Honor and Roses by Elizabeth Cole. I just got this through a free Bookbub and the cover art is gorgeous! Plus, it’s been a while since I’ve read a historical.

29215417

The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf.

  • 217 on Goodreads
  • 81 on Google Play Books (free downloads)
  • 42 on Barnes & Noble (free downloads)
  • and an unknown, always growing number on my physical shelf (library sale later today!!! Weeee!)

I’m going to refrain from nominating anyone this round because I know a lot of people are overwhelmed with the amount of tags they’ve been receiving lately. If you would like to do this tag, please go for it and link back to this post so I can have more things to add to my TBR ;).

Do any of my choices look appealing to you? Have you read any of them or are now maybe thinking about reading them? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. Thanks for participating and the sweet intro, Nel! The Trouble with Twelfth Grave seems interesting and yes! I love the cover! Cannot wait to hear your thoughts once you’ve read it!

    • I can’t wait either! It’s second to last book of the series. Darynda plans to write one more and that’s the end.

        • You have Charley Davidson who’s a private investigator but she’s also a grim reaper; in when people die, they have to pass through her to get to the other side, whereever that may be. She gets into some hilarious shenanigans with her best friend Cookie and she also has the hots for Reyes, who turns out to be the son of Satan. It’s such a freaking awesome read. It’s like paranormal, urban fantasy, romance, comedy. I met the author in real life and I adore her.

            • Hey, Nel! I’m looking up Darynda jones… what? Is this the 12th installment?! Should I start from the first book you think?

            • Definitely start with the first one! This one will be the 12th book yes. The whole series is called Charlie Davidson

    • I know right?? Grace Draven has a fantastic cover artist! I will look for your post when you do yours! I’m sure you’ll have some great ones! 🙂

  2. I read the Study books when they first came out and was content how they ended… I didn’t know there were more! You’re right though… not a fan of the covers! I also am guilty of free book download… lol SOOO many now! (334?)

  3. oh gosh I have the same ebook problem- I can relate!! Yeah Fire Study was the end of the series IMO. The thing is book 4 was such a waste of time- it spent the whole book on one very obvious plot point. Nothing really happened in book 5 either :/ I’ve given up on that series now. Great post!!
