Hello everyone! I still have a lot of reviews to finish, but I thought it’d be nice to take a break from Book Blitz, Cover Reveals, and Book Spotlights. I saw this post on @therevenantreader about a month ago and it’s been sitting in my draft since then. Well, I decided I would finally work on it since I AM ABSOLUTELY AND TERRIBLY DROWNING IN MY TBR PILE…
How do you keep track of your TBR pile? I simply add books to my Goodreads account whenever I see something I’m interested in reading.
Is your TBR mostly print or eBooks?
I would say mostly print books, but lately my ebook pile has been growing since I’ve started reviewing books.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
As of right now, I’m really trying to read as many books as I can that I have for reviews. I requested quite a lot when I first signed up for Netgalley thinking I wouldn’t get approved, but I did and kept requesting… I had a requesting addiction… well I still kind of do. I haven’t requested in a while though, but the temptation is always there.
I’m also a mood reader and would pick up books that I just feel like reading. During Spring and Summer I tend to read more YA contemporary romance, while during Fall and Winder I tend to read Fantasy, Sci-fi and other genre(s).
A book that’s been on your TBR the longest?
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare. Okay, so I think I made it halfway through this one, but got either super busy or distracted that I had to stop. Then other things came up and I just haven’t had the interest to go back to it. And when Shadowhunters started, as cheesy as it is, I really enjoy watching it that I would rather just do that and read something else. I do really love the Mortal Instruments series and I have all the books and preorder the new ones every single time. I just really need to be in the mood to read this series and that hasn’t happened in a while.
A book that you recently added to your TBR?
From Twinkle, with Love by Sandhya Menon. I loveeee When Dimple Met Rishi (Review Here) and absolutely adore Menon’s writing, so when I saw the cover reveal for this book, I obviously had to add it to my TBR. It’s not going to be available until June of next year, but it’s definitely high on my most anticipated reads in 2018.
A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover?
Okay so even if this on is one my TBR because I love the cover, I actually do really want to read it. Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi is another one of my most anticipated reads in 2018. I love the Shatter Me series and was super excited when Mafi announced she’s going to write three more books. And this cover is just mesmerizing and so gorgeous and I can’t wait to buy it when it comes out.
A book on your TBR that you never plan on actually reading?
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I bought the book years ago, saw the movie and loved it. However, I have never once even attempted to pick this up. I know there was a huge hype for it before the movie and a lot of people raved about how amazing it is. I guess I wanted to know what it was all about, so I bought the book. But for someone reason, I just didn’t get to read it. I don’t know if I’ll ever pick it up. I just have so many books I’m more interested in right now.
An unpublished book on your TBR that you are excited for?
I love Kasie West, so I’m always on the lookout for whatever she’s working on. I’m really excited for Love, Life and the List. Sounds like it’s going to be another fun, cute and adorable romance.
A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you?
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I feel like everyone has read Maas books and loves them. I actually have 5 books in this series and I have every intention of reading all of them. I think I’m just waiting for the series to finish so I can do a reading marathon. As much as I love rereading, I just can’t do it for every single series cause I don’t have time… Hence the reason why I’m drowning in my TBR.
A book on your TBR that basically everyone recommends to you?
I’m picking another Sarah J. Maas books because almost everyone I know loves her series. A Court of Thorns and Roses has been recommended to me multiple times and I’ve been really interested in starting it already. BUTTTTTT… it’s a big book compared to others and I feel like it’s one of those series that I just need to binge.
A book on your TBR that you are just dying to read?
Chasing Red by Isabelle Ronin. I’ve heard really great things about this book, so I’ve been super excited to read it for a long while now. The only reason why I haven’t started is because I’m trying to catch up on my Netgalley TBR. Well, I was just recently approved for Always Red on Netgalley, so this just got bumped up on my TBR.
The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
I’ve been a member since 2016 and have exactly 777 books on my TBR at this moment. That’s probably going to change by the end of the week since I’m constantly adding more books to read, but at least it isn’t over 1,000 yet.
Tagging everyone who’s drowning in their TBR and everyone else who wants to do this.
