How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I like to utilize Good Reads for the majority of my TBR. I also keep a list in the Color Notes app on my cell phone so I never have to worry about remembering my TBR when I get to go to the book store!

Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?

My TBR is mostly print books. I read e-books for NetGalley, and if it is easier for an author or publisher to send them for requests, but I always prefer print books because they are easier for me to read and I like the feeling of a book in my hands!

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

My next book in line depends on a number of things. First, I try to complete review requests within 1-2 weeks, so if that time limit is approaching, I give priority to those books. Second, if it is not too early, per the publisher’s request, and I have an ARC, I like to try to get those read in a decent time frame too. Third, if it is a book I really want to read, I will read it because I do this for enjoyment, so I don’t want too much pressure on me to read.

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

The Harry Potter series has been on my TBR the longest. Yes, I have not read the books yet! Shh! I guess I am partly nervous that I may not like them, and partly nervous that I will get too involved with them and my TBR will suffer. The fandom is HUGE, and there is so much hype!

A book that you recently added to your TBR.


This one has gotten a lot of positivity lately, and that cover is gorgeous!

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


Would you look at that cover? I added it before reading the synopsis, lol.

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

I have to agree with Katie on this one. I wouldn’t have something on my TBR if I didn’t plan on reading it, but I would say something I may not get to for a long while is Les Miserables because it is just so dang long!!

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.

I can name a few of those!!

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

Let’s see: The Harry Potter series, A Court of Thorns and Roses series, and The Lunar Chronicles.

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.


A book on your TBR that your just dying to read.


Besides the anticipated releases I am waiting on, I plan on reading this whole series ASAP!

The number of books on your goodreads TBR shelf.

Umm, I am afraid to answer this…322 is the number. Please tell me someone else has a number this big! Lol.

  1. harry potter has been on my tbr list for so long too and i won’t probably get to that anytime soon either lol. i cannot wait to read the tiger’s watch and warbringer!! OMG I AM SO EXCITED! i literally laughed out loud when i read what you wrote for mask of shadows, that cover is stunning! awesome answers! i related to a lot of these ❤


  2. I keep track of everything with my goodreads too. I haven’t finished the HP books either and I haven’t read any of the Lunar Chronicles. My tbr number on goodreads is 1399, I will probably never have a reasonable number.

      1. I will work on getting them and when you are ready we should do a special blog event or something. I think I only know one or two other bloggers who haven’t read them, so it would be cool to get our perspective on the books ass entering the fandom late. 🙂

  3. I only read 2 books of the Harry Potter series and then stopped, not because I didn’t like them, but because I didn’t feel then that special and it was a long time ago, so I forgot 😅🙈
    I had never read the ACOTAR trilogy until last month, too 😎

      1. I really liked the first book, though it wasn’t as amazing as I thought it would be as everyone kept raving about it. I hated the second book and the third one was okay 🙈
        But you should read them, mine is only one of the few negative opinions of this book. However, I’m waiting for the spin-off series because I preferred the other characters over the protagonist 😂

  4. I have heard some pretty awesome things about The Tiger’s Watch! I can’t wait to get to that one!

    Three Dark Crowns wasn’t my favorite, One Dark Throne is another one I just cannot wait to read!!

  5. I use Goodreads to organize my TBR list too. I’d be lost without it! I’m with you on paperbacks too. They’re so much easier to read because they don’t give you so much eye strain!

  6. You are not the last person to not read Harry Potter. I am right there with you. I saw the first movie…I know. Those words are the kiss of death to another reader! LOL

    I am glad to see One Dark Throne on your list. I bought Three Dark Crowns recently, so it’s nice to know you like the series enough to want to continue.

    Fun tag! 🙂

    1. I have seen most of the movies too, and though I don’t love them as much as most people, I am really interested in the books for the future since the fandom is so intriguing!

      Three Dark Crowns had a slow start for me but it really picked up and had a great ending, so book 2 has a lot of potential!


      1. We will all be sitting on the edge of our seats. If you live-tweeted it when you read it for the first time, people would probably be REALLY into that. I’ve seen people do such things for the movies. It’s always funny/interesting.

  7. YOU HAVEN’T READ HP?? YOU MUST RIGHT THIS WRONG RIGHT AWAY 😛 😛 Sorry, I’m just a huge potterhead! And I recently added The Tiger’s Watch too..LOVE the cover and all the diversity in the book 🙂 I’m so freaking excited for One Dark Throne too!! Great tag 😀

    1. Hehe…Shhhh! Not so loud! You will bring the fandom down on my head! Lol. I plan to right that wrong in the near future! I promise! ❤

      That cover for The Tiger's Watch is definitely awesome! and I am hoping to catch up on my review requests so I can get in to One Dark Throne!


  8. I love all your answers 🌸
    I am seriously shooketh by your Harry Potter confession! It’s scandalous! No, but I completely understand what you mean, the fandom is huge and once you get in you’ll never get out (I am proof of this) and I’m sure that the thought of not liking it is super scary!
    I’m super excited for Wonder Woman Warbringer and One Dark Throne since I absolutely loved Three Dark Crowns 😊

  9. Fun tag! I also have my TBR list on Goodreads, but I often don’t add books I’m going to remember I want to read, like books in series or just something I really really want to read. Honestly, a lot of the books on my Goodreads list I probably no longer even have that strong of an interest in.
