I saw this tag over at The Book Heap and figured it would be something fun to write about (since lately I haven’t been very active on the blog). So here we go, bring on the questions!

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

Goodreads. I have 2 different shelves: “to read” for all the books that I own but haven’t read yet, and “kindle tbr” for all the books I have on my Kindle and still haven’t read.

2. Is your TBR mostly print or ebooks?

Print. Although I went a little crazy on my Kindle and the 2 numbers are now very close.

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

Whatever I feel like reading. Unless I want to take part in a book club, for which I will pick up the book of the month, otherwise I try to pick up that I feel like reading at the moment.

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

According to Goodreads: The Death of King Arthur by Peter Ackroyd.

5. A book you’ve recently added to your TBR pile?

The Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov.

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

abyssWell it is not on my TBR per se, but I saw the cover of this book, was drawn to it, did a little research and found out that in order to fully appreciate this books, I had to read the previous work of that author, and so I got 5 books for my Kindle and still haven’t read any of them (the shortest one of the bunch is 800 pages long, that might be why).

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

Most likely The Suspicions Of Mr Whicher Or The Murder At Road Hill House by Kate Summerscale. I got it because I took care of the author at a book festival back in 2012 and I had her sign it for me, but I really don’t have any interest in it if I’m honest. But it’s signed, so I don’t really want to get rid of it.

8. An unpublished book you are excited for?

The Hollow Boy by Jonathan Stroud. I know very little of upcoming releases. The only ones I look for are next books in series I’m reading; so, currently, it would be the Cormoran Strike novels by Robert Galbraith and the Lockwood & Co. series by Jonathan Stroud.

9. A TBR book everyone else has read but you.

The Book Thief. Don’t hate me.

10. A book everyone and their mother is recommending to you, therefore is on your TBR?

Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples. I have the first volume but still haven’t got around to reading it.

11. A TBR book you are dying to read.

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie.

12. Finally, how many books overall are on your Goodreads TBR shelves?


Although it might be a bit misleading because I add individual books of an anthology. For example I own 2 volumes of the collected Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, but in order to count everything toward my Goodreads challenge, I added each separate collection to my TBR. For example, there are 5 collections in Volume 1. Does it make sense?

I tag The Beautiful Stillness.

        1. LOL. That’s a typo. That was supposed to say “1 or 2 hours”.
          You don’t have it? when you said it was on your TBR and should we do a read-along I thought you already had a copy!
