Amanda at Hanging with Amanda posted this earlier and I decided to join in on the fun! Here’s a little peek into what us book bloggers are reading!
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
I keep a Google Sheets file where I log the title, author, request date, and source as soon as I get them. Whether reading for fun or a review request I’ll lose track if I don’t organize it all!
Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
Mostly ebooks, which makes me sad because I love real books. I have few places that I review for that offer hardback and paperback and often authors will send me a physical copy after it’s gone to print, even if I reviewed it awhile back. An author friend told me the other day the ratio of ebook sales to physical book sales so I get it, but still love physical books.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I add books to my TBR list according to when the review request was received or when I downloaded it, but also try to pay attention to publication dates. At the end of the day, though, I usually look over my list and pick whatever I’m in the mood for.
A book that’s been on your TBR list the longest?
“A Once and Future Love,” by Anne Kelleher has been on my list the longest. It popped up one day on a Reading Deals e-mail and it sounded interesting, but I’ve never read it because I’m so busy keeping up with current books and requests.
A book you recently added to your TBR?
“Forward,” by J. Saman. We recently connected on Goodreads where she was looking for reviewers!
A book in your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover?
A book on your TBR you never plan on reading?
“Learning Love” (Port Charlotte Series Book 2), by Alexis Jacobson but only because I didn’t realize at the time (not paying attention) that it was the second in a series.
An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?
A book on your TBR that basically everyone’s read but you?
“Cruel Beautiful World,” by Caroline Leavitt. It’s been on my Kindle for a month or so, but I haven’t gotten to it!
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?
“The Vegetarian,” by Han Kang… Another book that’s supposed to be dark and somewhat disturbing, but is apparently an absolute must-read.
A book on Your TBR that you’re dying to read?
Absolutely “Cupcake Overload,” by Bethany Lopez! I was crazy about “Always Room for Cupcakes” and luckily she sent me the next in the series the day after I reviewed it!
How many books are there on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
Only 29 but I don’t have time to put them all on my spreadsheet and then on Goodreads. According to my spreadsheet as of today, I have 81… I may be caught up by Christmas!
It’s tagging time now! I tag-
all of my book blogger pals!
