Yay, another tag! I’m not quite sure who originally created this one, but I recently (somewhat haha) saw this tag over at Space and Sorcery and thought it looked like a fun one to fill out.
How do you keep track on your TBR list?
Well, I only consider books officially on my TBR if I own them. I keep a catalog of all my owned books through library thing but I also started a spreadsheet from a more recent cataloging project I did from libib of just my speculative fiction and I consider all my unread owned books from that my official TBR. I’m currently going through the process of purging that. I’ll admit that it does need to be updated with all the new books I’ve added to it over this year….
Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?
It’s probably about 70% physical books and then about 30% digital at this point. Although I am stacking those ebooks up more and more lately. 😉
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
Right now it’s basically mood reading all the way. So I’ll take a look and see what I’m in the mood for. Although I am also trying to make an effort at reading books that have been in the TBR pile for a while so I’m trying not to just browse through the latest additions.
Name a book that has been on your TBR the longest.
Oh, this is an easy one. The Mageborn Traitor by Melanie Rawn has been in my TBR pile since 1997.
Name a book that you recently added to your TBR list.
Probably one of the most recent adds was Harrow the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir. I still have to read the first book in that series too. Ahahaha, I have a problem lol.
Is there a book that’s on your TBR list strictly because of its beautiful cover?
Oh, so many. Pretty much all of Patricia McKillip’s books–the good thing is that her prose is just as beautiful. But I’ll admit I also picked up Of Sorrow and Such by Angela Slatter just because of the cover.
Is there a book on your TBR that you never plan on actually reading?
Maybe The Mageborn Traitor! I mean, right now I’m going through a purge trying to eliminate those books that I have no intentions of reading. But I debate about reading The Mageborn Traitor all the time because it’s a series that will probably never be finished. Also when I first got the book I flipped to the back to see how many pages there were and I saw something about my favorite character dying so I never wanted to read it because if I don’t read it then it’s like it doesn’t happen, right? That’s how that works.
Name an unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.
I don’t have any unpublished on my official TBR because of what I consider my actual TBR. BUT. I will say one that I’m excited for that I have an eARC of is Spellbreaker by Charlie N. Holmberg–always excited to see what new thing she’s come up with.
Is there a book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you?
Probably either Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin or The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson.
Is there a book on your TBR that everyone recommends you read?
I don’t think there’s any ONE book but there are a lot that when I bring them up people are like ‘I can’t believe you haven’t read that yet’. Mmmmm, maybe Foundryside by Robert Jackson Bennett.
A book on your TBR you’re very excited to read.
Network Effect by Martha Wells. I’ve been so excited for this one but just haven’t found the time somehow to read it yet? I’m always so busy with other books. Maybe sometime this month…
The number of books on your TBR shelf.
Some people can fit it on a single shelf? AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Ummm, I have over 800 at last count.
And that’s it for this tag! Not going to tag anyone with this one but if you feel like filling it out, please give it a whirl. 🙂
