The TBR Tag.

The TBR Tag.

so many book

This is the TBR Tag, in other words, the books I have to read and have not read yet!! I have only included books that I currently have. I think there are lots more books that I want to read, but I haven’t got yet.

I saw this tag on Katie’s site, link below: Thank you for this Katie.  😉

I thought it was a really fun post to do, so I’m giving it a go. I won’t officially tag anybody, but if you do this tag, leave me your link below so I can see your answers.

Enjoy! Here goes:

1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I was lucky enough to win a book journal. It is one of the best prizes that I have won, because I can keep a list of all of my books, and as I read them I can also make notes along the way for my review. I also have a list on Goodreads, though I don’t think this is completely up to date! Plus it has lots of books on it that I don’t yet own.

2. Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?

Mostly ebook, I think that’s because I have been accepting so many books to review and I have them piled up on my kindle. I have quite a few print books too, some bought myself and some review copies. 

3. How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?

Mostly it’s based on what I have agreed to review. My reviewing time at the moment is about 2 months ahead because I have so many, so I have my line up of tbr’s in order for the next while. However, if I get offered one that sounds really amazing, I sometimes bump it up my list.

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

Probably ‘A Season to Remember’ by Sheila Flanagan. I received this as a Christmas gift, I didn’t read it at Christmas and it got pushed back. It’s the kind of book I want to read at Christmas or at least winter. So, it’s been waiting a while. When I do read it, I’m sure I will love it. It will be cold and snowy outside and the spicy scented candles are burning and I’m drinking hot chocolate.

5. A book you recently added to your TBR?

The latest one that was added to my list is ‘Kidnapped by Nuns’ by Bob Fuss. Bob is a retired CBS News Correspondent, and I think he will have some amazing takes to tell. I am exited to read this.

6. A book on your TBR strictly because of it’s beautiful cover?

I wouldn’t read a book solely based on its cover, but the covers do bring me in to read the blurb. I do like books with beautiful covers, they look so enticing to read. One I recently requested from NetGalley is The Coincidence Of Coconut Cake, by Amy E Reichert. This cover is lovely and so enticing, don’t you think?!

7. A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?

I plan to read them all….. eventually!  😉

 

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

‘For the Love of Ash’ by Taylor Lavati looks like a lovely book all about the importance of family and love. I have been given a copy of this by the author in exchange for an honest review. I love to receive arc copies, and I’m really looking forward to reading this. This is due to be released this month.

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

I think this would have to be ‘Chocolate Wishes’ by Trisha Ashley. This has been out since 2010, so I think most people who like the same kind of books as me, would have read this. I love the cover of this book, so quaint and lovely looking. I think it looks like a perfect book for a chocoholic book lover like me! If you have read this, let me know how fantastic it is. I promise I will read this soon, it looks so delightful.

10. A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?

I was recommended to read this by AJ from https://ajbookreviewclub.wordpress.com

Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell. AJ told me this book was totally amazing, I read her review of it and it sounds a very creepy book, but really good too. AJ raved about it so much, that I really am looking forward to reading it.

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

A book which really is next on my tbr list because it look so good is ‘Japan Guide..Less: Emails’ from Japan by Nicole D’Arcangelo. This book looks so funny and brilliant. I also think I will be able to relate to it really well because it’s about a lady’s life teaching English and surviving in a foreign country, which I have done and loved.

12. How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

At the moment my Goodreads TBR list is at 33. I’m think I could probably add a few more to it, but 33 is plenty to keep me going for a while. I started the Goodreads challenge this year and said I would read 30 books this year, so far I have read 7, so I’m doing well.

That was a fun tag to do, if any of you bookbloggers or readers want to join in, then please do. Let me know some of your answers or add me your link to your post below. I’d love to hear from you.

      I’m trying to stay realistic, as it takes me a while to read. I think if I added every book I thought looked good, it would be a lot bigger. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      Thank you, it feels like I’m a really slow reader compared the other bookbloggers too, but as long as I enjoy the books I don’t mind. Hope you find something that you like.
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    I really like this! Am bookmarking so I can do it some time and pass it on to other people who review books on a blog (whether proper book bloggers or those who just have a review blog, like me!) – and of course I’ll link back to yours!

      Ooh now there is a difficult question! My fav book of all time???? Well, probably ‘The Food of Love’ by Anthony Capella. Or any of Sophie Kinsella’s books, I really love those. I’m not so much a classics person. I hope you’ve been inspired to pick up a book again?!
