The TBR Book Tag

Hey everyone!
Today, I will be doing the TBR Book Tag. I did this tag at the beginning of the year, but I have decided to do it again with updated answers.

So, here goes…


1 – How do you keep track for your TBR pile?

I have a checklist/spreadsheet on my laptop. I actually have a few different ones, for different challenges that I’m doing.

2 – Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?

There are definitely more physical copies (because I’m attempting to get through as many of the books on my shelves as I can), but 90% of my ARCs are ebook, so I have quite a few of those too.

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

Obviously it depends on ARC release dates, or when my stop is on blog tours, but they usually come first, but after those, I tend to just pick whichever one I feel like reading at the time.

4 – A book that’s been on your TBR the longest

There are so many… But, A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking has probably been on there longer than most.

5 – A book that you recently added to your TBR

I recently added The Christmas Killer by Alex Pine to my TBR, after been auto-approved for it on NetGalley, by Avon! I’m actually planning to read it this month, reading for it’s October release.

6 – A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover

There aren’t any that are on their strictly because it has a beautiful cover, but I have to admit that one of the main reasons (but not the only reason) I bought Wilder Girls by Rory Power is because of the beautiful cover.

7 – A book on your TBR that you NEVER plan on actually reading

There aren’t any. If it is on my TBR, I will read it eventually.

8 – An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for

I’m excited for all of the unpublished books on my TBR, but The Berlin Girl by Mandy Robotham is one I am particularly excited for! It’s publish date is 29th October.

9 – A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. EVERYONE seemed to read it when it first came out, and here I am with it still on my TBR…

10 – A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you

My Sister, The Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite. This has been recommended to me so many times, and I can’t wait to read it!

11 – A book on your TBR that you’re just dying to read

The Demons Beneath by WD Jackson-Smart. I read From Inside the House (Book 2 of the DI Graves series) by WD Jackson-Smart in 2019, and it was my favourite book of the year. But, I still haven’t read The Demons Beneath, which is the first book in the DI Graves series. I am so excited to read this as soon as possible!

12 – The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf

45. I don’t actually add books to my GoodReads TBR shelf very often, so it in no way reflects the real size of my TBR list.
