TBR Tag Game

@thelibraryofmars tagged me, so let’s give this a shot!

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

I keep ‘em piled next to my bed. That way I can see them every time I’m temped to buy something new. Though there’s also an ever-growing list of cheaply-acquired books on my kindle. I don’t bother trying to keep track of that. 

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

Mostly print. I love going to secondhand bookstores and buying as many paperbacks as ten bucks can get me, and I’ve made a few trips like that without actually getting much reading in, so… Yeah. My pile of unread books is threatening to overwhelm. 

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

Whim, mostly. 

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

Probably Inheritance. I used to be a huge Eragon fan in middle school. Like, I loved the heck outta those books. But then the last one took so long to come out that by the time I had it in my hands, I’d sorta outgrown the series. It’s still sitting there, actually. Untouched. Joke’s on me. It’s got a signed bookplate and everything.

5. A book you recently added to your TBR?

I hear Six of Crows is good. Soon as I have the brainspace for a new read, I’ll get to it. 

6. A book in your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover?      

Unnatural Creatures by Neil Gaiman is there mostly because of the cover. I dunno what it is about that font…

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

…probably Inheritance again. I might read it. Maybe. Someday.

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 An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?

Oh gosh… Does Windswept count? I’ve been so focused on getting my own work out there, I haven’t been able to keep up with upcoming releases for a while.

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

I feel like Six of Crows is becoming that. I’ll get to it. Eventually. 

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

Six of Crows. 

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

Of Darkness and Dawn and Of Dawn and Darkness. I’m counting them both here as the same book, because the author wrote them both at the same time, and they both depict the same story, except from different perspectives. The first set in the series was really well done–the two sides of the story were both well balanced and unique–and I totally would have read the next one(s) already if school hadn’t gotten in my way. 

12. How many books are on your TBR shelf?

I don’t know. I don’t want to know. One, two, many, lots–more than enough to keep me busy for quite a while.
