The TBR Book Tag

I wasn’t actually tagged for this one, but I saw it awhile ago on A Booknerd Travels, and finally decided to take a stab at it.

The TBR Book Tag

How do you keep track on your TBR list?

I don’t know what I’d do without Goodreads. I have every book I own that I haven’t read and every book I don’t own, but want to read on there. I also keep track of a bunch of other things with Goodreads. You can learn more about how I use Goodreads here.

Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?

Hmm… I think it is about even, when it comes to books I own. I do have a TBR shelf on Goodreads full of books I want to read, but don’t own and a handful of audiobooks in my Audible library.

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

I’m 100% a mood reader, however, every month I put together a reading list for the month so that I have a short list to choose from. I don’t force myself to read just the books on these lists, though. I’ll stray if I’m in the mood.

A book that has been on your TBR the longest.


OMG where do I begin? I have 5 entire bookshelves full of books I haven’t read yet that have been with me for over a decade. I’m going to go with Jane Eyre, though, because I’ve been a big fan of the original movie (and now the remake) for the longest time, but never got around to reading the actual book.

A book that you recently added to your TBR list?


Something New by Skylar Hill was recently free on Kindle, so I grabbed it!

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


I saw The Promise of Stardust at a used bookstore and fell in love with the cover. I bought it even though I doubt I’ll ever actually read it since it sounds so heartbreaking.

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

See above LOL

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.


Almost all of the books I was looking forward to were published last month LOL! I’m actually dying to read the latest Pucked novel, Pucked Love by Helena Hunting. I’ve already preordered the audiobook!

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

The entire Knitting in the City series. I only just finished Book 3, but it feels like everyone has already read them all! I need to catch up!

A book on your TBR everyone recommends you.

I feel like I recommend books more than they are recommended to me.

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

Is it cheating to say Pucked Love again?? I’m seriously obsessed with that series. Instead, I’ll go with 99% Mine by Sally Thorne. I love The Hating Game, I can’t wait to read her second novel!

The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf.

This is so embarrassing. I have 1739 on my TBR!


This is definitely an older tag, so I won’t be surprised if a lot of you have done it already, but I’m going to tag a few people anyway, just in case!

How many books do you have on your TBR?

  1. I honestly don’y know where I’d be without Goodreads too. I’m also a mood reader and don’t make any sort of monthly TBR list. Currently, though, I’ve mostly been interested in reading what I own on my own shelves because I just have so many! In getting through more of what I already own, I found I’ve been least likely to check out books while at work which has always been the issue because I catalog the new YA books whenever they come in!

  2. Is Pucked about hockey love…? Just wondering about that punny title. And I agree with you — Goodreads is soo helpful. I don’t know what I’d do without it.

  3. I really don’t utilise Goodreads as much as I should with my TBRs. But I love it for sorting genres, and what I read in a year. I love the idea of a monthly reading list – seems like a good guideline for when I get stuck at the end of a book.

    1. Exactly! I always had this moment of, “OMG what do I possibly read next?” having that list is always nice to refer to, even if I don’t stick to it every month.

  4. I’ve only recently tackled some of the books on my TBR list. I finally finished A Clockwork Scarab which I KNEW I would love but avoided reading for about two years! Jane Eyre has also been waiting patiently on my bookshelf for who knows how long. Hopefully I read it by the end of the summer!
