TBR Tag!

Hello lovelies,

I haven't done a tag, in a while and since I very rarely do TBR or hauls I thought it might be fun to do this one, I spotted this one over on Books and Lala (as always!) and it was originally created by A Perfection Called Books

Here we go!

1.     How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

Firstly, I used goodreads - I have several shelves on there, and for books I want to read I have three shelves; Books to Buy, Books to Read (the ones I already own) and Comic Books and Graphic Novels. Also, I transfer all my books that are on my goodreads shelves to my amazon wishlists so I can keep an eye on the prices, and occasionally (mostly with comic book trade paperbacks) pre-order them. 

2.     Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?

Used to be 50/50 but I deliberately cut back on e-books so now I have more print. 

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

It totally just depends what I'm in the mood for, unless I'm doing a read-a-thon. I'm not very good with sticking to a set list of books (hence why I don't really do TBRs).

4.     A Book That's Been On Your TBR List The Longest 

Hmm...that's a tough one, I think I'll just go with the first book added to my Goodreads shelves which is Divergent (oh dear) on my owned shelf, and Pride and Prejudice on my to buy shelf.

5.     A Book You Recently Added To Your TBR

A Trifle Dead by Livia Day (I also added a couple of Captain America volume 1's after that).

6.     A Book In Your TBR Strictly Because Of Its Beautiful Cover

I don't buy or put books in my TBR based on their cover, I tend to see them in book hauls and then I research the plot and other reviews on Goodreads before I add it on my shelves. However, admittedly, quite often I'll pick up a book in a book shop or see on Amazon based on its cover and then add it to my shelves and the last one I can think of I did that with was...The Bees by Laline Paull. 

7.     A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading

Funnily enough, its the same as the book that's been on my shelf the longest: Divergent, alongside another added not long after; Game of Thrones. Just nah. I ain't got time for that. 

8.     An Unpublished Book On Your TBR That You’re Excited For

Definitely,  Summer Days and Summer Nights which I mentioned in my Top 5 Summer Reads, and of course, the latest Dresden Files book, which fingers crossed will come out on audiobook this year. 

9.     A Book On Your TBR That Basically Everyone’s Read But You 

I would say Game of Thrones but I've already used it so...let's see...actually there's loads now that I think about it! But The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is one that I wish I had already picked up!

10.  A Book On Your TBR That Everyone Recommends To You

I really don't get any recommendations to be honest, I'm usually the one giving them! (feel free to fire some at me below!)

11.  A Book On Your TBR That You’re Dying To Read

There are a lot that I really want to read RIGHT NOW, but if I have to pick I'd probably go with... The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh because everyone is talking about the second one right now.

12.  How many books are on your TBR shelf?

Oh that's rude that's like asking a lady her age! Only joking...I have 97 that I own that I haven't read yet, and 299 on my to buy list (yeah right as if that's going to happen!)

Have you done this tag? What's on you TBR list? Leave your links and let me know below!
