The TBR Tag!!!


The TBR Tag originated from Dana at Dana Square and Rachel at A Perfection Called Books
They want to know all about book bloggers wild TBR lists!!!


I was tagged by sweet Jaime at Fic Fare :)
Thank you so much, Jaime!!!
Please stop by and check out Jaime's awesome blog!


HOW DO YOU KEEP TRACK OF YOUR TBR PILE???
Ummm... I kind of don't. 
Yes, I use Goodreads and have shelves upon shelves; I always add the books that I buy/receive and divide them up into ARCs, hardcover, ebooks, paperbacks, to-review, etc. But I don't necessarily go back and reference my lists to keep track of them. Also, the only books that I do keep in my TBR piles are books for review. As those review stacks dwindle down, I add in the books I want to read.
I keep these stacks in my bedroom closet and they're stacked as per release month. Books that I really want to read are kept in a stack on my dresser. 


IS YOUR TBR MOSTLY PRINT OR E-BOOKS???
Mostly print! I have a ton of ebooks, but "out of sight, out of mind"! Seriously, even with the lists I have made, unless I'm on a blog tour, I always forget about ebooks/eARCs. Plus, my kindle recently broke, so if I want to read an ebook I have to read it on my phone... and that hurts my eyes, lol!

Physical books! Always!!!


HOW DO YOU DETERMINE WHICH BOOK TO READ FIRST???
Well... this is a tricky question!...
My review books take top priority, especially those that I have inquired about, which is not often, so those books always get read first. Of course, they also have to fit my mood... 
Next are unsolicited review books. I try to fit as many of those that I can. Again, I don't receive many, so most get read on a timely basis too. 
And then, I read the books that I either won in giveaways or purchased. I am a total mood reader and I usually try to read the books that have been released within the same year. This is my biggest pile and always the hardest to choose from.
Lastly, but certainly not least, I try to fit in classics and older books. I wish I had more time for these. Thankfully, this pile isn't too large either... at least, not to me ;) 


A BOOK THAT HAS BEEN ON YOUR TBR THE LONGEST???


Clockwork Angel, Catching Fire and Mockingjay were all added on December 26th, 2011!
The Book Thief was added on January 14th, 2012!!! I cannot see the movie until I read this first! lol


A BOOK THAT YOU HAVE RECENTLY ADDED TO YOUR TBR???


(Book three doesn't have a cover to it yet.)
I am DYING to get back into the TRYLLE world!!!


A BOOK ON YOUR TBR STRICTLY BECAUSE OF ITS BEAUTIFUL COVER???


The Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent.
I have never read a book by her. AND this cover!!!... I like it!


A BOOK ON YOUR TBR THAT YOU NEVER PLAN ON READING???


Sorry. I am not a fan of this world.
*runs away and hides*


AN UNPLUBLISHED BOOK IN YOUR TBR THAT YOU'RE EXCITED ABOUT???


No one can choose just one!!!
- A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas (- a reimagining of Sleeping Beauty!!!)
- I Was Here by Gayle Forman
- Monstrous by MarcyKate Connolly 
- Finding Paris by Joy Preble


A BOOK THAT EVERYONE'S READ BUT YOU???

TFioS
Nope. Haven't read it. And when the movie came out, I was spoiled. 
So I won't be watching it until I read the book.
Which at this rate... might be another year or two...

AND!!! DIVERGENT!!! Haven't jumped into the hype yet! hee, hee


A BOOK ON YOUR TBR THAT EVERYONE RECOMMENDS TO YOU???


Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge and Stray by Elissa Sussman ... 
because you all know me so well :) *fairytale-swoons*


A BOOK ON YOUR TBR THAT YOU'RE DYING TO READ???


A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness (I haven't read any of his books either!)
AND!!! The Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy by Laini Taylor - I have heard nothing but epic things about this story and her writing!!!


THE NUMBER OF BOOKS ON MY GOODREADS TBR SHELF... 
It says 421 on Goodreads... however, I think that it may be much less than that since I only go by my physical books and I do not have nearly that many in my physical piles. This tag has definitely pointed out that to me that I need to do some much needed cleaning on my Goodreads shelves :)
