The TBR Book Tag

book tags header.jpg

Happy Thursday, everyone! Hope all is well wherever you are. 💗

I found this tag over at Megabunny Reads, and the tag was created by A Perfection Called Books and Dana Square. Since my TBR is virtually overflowing at this point, I figured this would be a fitting tag…

Let’s begin, shall we?

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I’ve been storing all of my TBR books on my Want to Read shelf on Goodreads for about four years now. It’s getting waaaaaaaaaay too long, but it’s a good way to keep track of everything.

Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?

Well…I mean…neither? I just have them listed on Goodreads, so I have no way of knowing if I’ll get the book at the library, the Kindle library, or buy it in physical or electronic format.

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

Amazon.com: The Good Neighbors #1: Kin eBook: Holly Black, Ted ...

At the present moment, The Good Neighbors is #1 on my TBR list, having been there since…whoa, June 2016?

 

A book on your TBR strictly for the cover

The Quiet at the End of the World: Amazon.co.uk: James, Lauren: Books

I mean…The Quiet at the End of the World isn’t there *strictly* because of the cover, but hey…c’mon, this belongs in a museum.

 

A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading

Amazon.com: One of Us Is Lying (9781524714680): McManus, Karen M ...

I think I recently ousted this one from my TBR, but I’ve all but lost interest in One of Us Is Lyingdespite the recommendations from fellow book nerds and friends. Eh.

 

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for 

Amazon.com: Aurora Burning (The Aurora Cycle) (9781524720926 ...

I’ve already preordered Aurora Burningand at this point, I’m counting down the days until it comes out…EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

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

The Black Witch (The Black Witch Chronicles, #1) by Laurie Forest

I’ve almost bought The Black Witch at least two or three times, at this point. Seems to be a pretty hyped-up book, but I’m excited to read it soon! It’s on the Kindle library, so hopefully I can read it soon! My friend was just recommending this to me last night…

 

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you

Dune: Frank Herbert: 9780340960196: Amazon.com: Books

I’ve had a fair amount of people recommend Dune to me over the years…

 

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

TRUEL1F3 (Lifelike, #3) by Jay Kristoff

I CANNOT WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON TRUEL1F3June can’t come soon enough…

 

How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

Drumroll, please…

…1,129.

Now you know why I do so many Down the TBR Hole posts…

 

I tag anyone who wants to participate!

I Should Have Read That Book Tag

Happy Friday, everyone! If you celebrated, I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving as well!

I saw this on A Little Haze Book Blog not long ago, and I figured that I’d give it a go. I feel like I’m putting the same books in my book tags (I’ll try to fix that), and since this one’s  about TBR books, I’m excited to participate!

Rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you and link back to their post (see above!)
  • Link to the creator’s blog (booksnest.co.uk) in your post
  • Answer the questions below
  • Tag 10 others to take part
  • ENJOY THE TAG!

 

The Questions

  • A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read
  • A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up
  • A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet
  • A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read
  • A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read
  • A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet
  • A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet

 

1. A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read 

Lately, a good friend of mine has started to get into some older sci-fi, and this was her first, vehement recommendation to me: The War of the Worlds.

It’s not available at the library (woe is me…), but I’m definitely excited to get my hands on this one someday.

 

2. A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up

This one’s been on my TBR since day one…

Though I’m not a fan of Holly Black, I absolutely adore Ted Naifeh’s work, and the story of The Good Neighbors  seems like a perfect melding of their respective styles.

3. A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t gotten round to finishing yet

I read the first book, Mask of Shadowsabout a year ago, and I remember the story being pretty intriguing and fast-paced, not to mention the excellent LGBTQ+ rep. (the main character, Sal, is genderfluid). But…I’ve just neglected to read Ruin of Stars  for no good reason other than my being lazy. Sigh…

 

4. A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read

41le8ej-fiL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

I’m putting this one off for a few years, because I’ll have to read it for an AP English class, but Brave New World seems like it would be an interesting read, in the same vein as 1984. 

 

5. A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read

Somehow, I STILL haven’t gotten around to reading The Hate U Give,  despite several recommendations from friends and librarians alike. It’ll probably be in that constant “all copies in use” limbo at my local library for a few years, due to its immense popularity, but I’d definitely like to give it a try at some point.

 

6. A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet

I didn’t realize until the end credits that Jojo Rabbit was based on a book. I’m not sure if I’ll have the stomach to read this one (I’m guessing that Taika Waititi had some comedic liberties while directing Jojo), but I’m sure Caging Skies would be worth a read.

 

7. A book you see all over Instagram but haven’t picked up yet

I tend to see Furyborn pop up often, and I’ve been meaning to read it for a while. I’ve read a few other books by Claire Legrand (The Year of Shadows, Some Kind of Happinessetc.), and most of them have been decent. Claire Legrand’s obviously prolific, with a wide range of talents, so I’m excited to see how this plays out.

 

I tag…

Weeeelll…I’m not sure if  I know ten people who’d all be interested in doing this tag, so I’ll open it up to anyone who hasn’t done it, and wants to. 🙂

 

Have a lovely rest of your day! I might not be able to get to any more tags this week, but stay tuned for more content!
