TBR Book Tag

TBR Book Tag

While reading through various blogs, I stumbled upon this tag over at A Journey of Words. Though I’m not one to typically build monthly TBRs, I still have quite an extensive list of books I want to read! Besides, I thought the questions were intriguing, so why not give it a whirl?

With that said, let’s dive in!

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

Currently, I have an entire bookshelf in my bedroom dedicated to all my unread books! I’ve been meaning to focus on reading those books this year, though this past month has been filled with library books… oops. Still, it’s nice to have all my unread books in one spot.

Other than that, I have a Goodreads shelf dedicated to books I want to read. That shelf is much more full than my physical bookshelf, heh. I just want to read all the books, ya’ll.

Is your TBR mostly print or e-books?

Currently it is mostly print books. I tend to enjoy reading physical books more than e-books, so they make up more of my owned books. I do have a growing collection of e-books, though, and most of my ARCs are in e-book format. And I have a small Audible collection, as well. I just have books everywhere, lol.

A book that’s been on your TBR list the longest?

It used to be The Count of Monte Cristo but I finally finished that book last year! So now the one that has been there the longest would probably beeeee…

Are we seeing a trend? Most of the oldest books on my TBR are classics and ya girl has a tense relationship with classics. I did end up loving The Count of Monte Cristo, though, so perhaps it’s time to suck it up and finally read Les Mis. I mean, it’s only been on my TBR since *peeks* 2011?!


A book you recently added to your TBR?

I literally just added this book to my TBR yesterday! The author, Alix E. Harrow, posted the cover reveal on Twitter and… I mean… look at it! How could I not add it?! Also, I adored the author’s first book, The Ten Thousand Doors of January, and this book is about witches. I just want it now, please.

A book in your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover?

Like, all of them?

Hmm… what is the most recent book I picked just because of the cover? Let’s go with…

I distinctly remember seeing the cover of this book, not knowing a single thing about it, and thinking, “I must read this.” I LOVE this cover! And I own the book! But still haven’t read it because of who I am as a person!


Still, since randomly buying it because pretty, I have actually learned more about the book and I’m excited to actually read it!

A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?

Well, the whole point of a TBR is that they are books I’m planning on reading at some point in time. I don’t think there are any books on my TBR that I’m actively planning on not reading. That being said, I’m sure there are quite a few books on my TBR that I won’t manage to get to in my lifetime. And, if I’m being honest with myself, one of the classics would be most likely to be forgotten.

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

I just… really need this book. I need to know how Fie’s story ends. I need to know what’s up with that title! That title has me W O R R I E D.

A book on your TBR that basically everyone’s read but you?

I feel like everyone has read this book but me, heh 😅 It is definitely on my soon-to-read list. It’s currently chilling on my physical TBR bookshelf, judging me for ignoring it for so long. I just know I’m going to love this book, but I kept skipping it for shiny new releases. Mayhaps I’ll finally get to it in March.

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?

This was the book I heard the most about last year. Quite a few of the Booktubers I watched loved this, it was all over book Twitter… it was freakin’ everywhere! I found myself falling for the hype. So now it’s hanging out on my TBR bookshelf, waiting to be picked up. With as well as my recent foray into adult romances went, I’ll probably be reading this sooner than later.

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

*grabby hands* GIMMIE!


Seriously, though, I’m so excited to read this book. The cover! Harrow! More weird necromancy sh*t! My body is ready.

How many books are on your Goodreads shelf?

Hahahahahahaha, do we have to talk about it…?


….Fine. It’s *cough*539*cough*

I have a problem, okay?
