The TBR Book Tag

I was tagged for this meme by the lovely Bree over at In Love & Words all the way back at the start of June. Make sure to check out her blog if you haven’t already 😊.


How do you keep track on your TBR list? Goodreads! Like many people in the blogging sphere, I rely quite heavily on Goodreads to keep track of my TBR (in terms of books that I don’t own but want to). For books I do own, I just look at my bookshelf.

Is your TBR mostly print or e-book? For books I own, definitely print as I have at least 50 novels in my bookshelf currently waiting to be read and no unread eBooks (well, really no eBooks full stop).

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next? The problem is that I often read books that aren’t on my TBR but that I find randomly in my local library. When I do pick an unread book from my bookshelf, my decision will usually be based solely off my mood, or the kind of book I feel like reading at that time.


A book that has been on your TBR the longest. Heidi or What Katy Did. I’ve had these books for around 5 years (it could be longer honestly) and still haven’t gotten to reading them yet.

A book that you recently added to your TBR list? The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth was recently added to the list of books that I don’t own but still want to read. It’s supposed to be great book & I’ve heard really good things about it.

A book on you TBR list strictly because of its beautiful cover. 

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

In terms of my physical TBR, maybe Summer of the Gypsy Moths by Sarah Pennypacker. I didn’t enjoy this book when I started reading it early last year & despite planning (at the time) to pick it up later, I am starting to think that I never will.

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for. 


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


A book on your TBR everyone recommends you.


The Illuminae series has been recommended to me numerous times.

A book on your TBR you’re very excited to read.

Any of the 3 books pictured above (but especially A Lady’s Guide!).

The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf.

To read: 333

Read: 129

What books do you have on your TBR? How do you keep track of the books you want to read?

    Yay! I’m glad you were able to find time to do the tag! I’m notorious for being tagged in things and then taking 5 years to do them 😛

    And don’t worry… you’re not the only one who hasn’t read Leah yet!
