The TBR Tag!

Friday, 10 October 2014
The wonderful Francoise from My Crazy Bookish World recently tagged me to do the TBR tag so...

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

The top shelf of my book case is where I store all my TBR books and I also have a goodreads shelf which I always try to keep updated.

Is your TBR mostly printed or eBook?

Printed, for sure. Though there is an alarming amount of eBooks on my goodreads shelf!

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

I have a long, hard think about what I'm in the mood for and then, if something stands out to me, choose that one. I love the idea of writing all the titles of your TBR books on bits of paper and pulling one out of a jar each month but I'd probably just not be in the mood for the one that'd be picked so... *shrugs*

A book that's been on your TBR list the longest?

The Hobbit is probably one of the longest ones.

A book on your TBR strictly because of it's beautiful cover?

Probably This Dark Endeavour by Kenneth Oppel (the plot does sound fascinating though)!

However, it doesn't look as nice in picture as it does in real life!

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

Probably Tanith Low in the Maleficent Seven by Derek Landy. Simply because it doesn't really catch my eye and I've not kept up with the original series it spawns off.

An unpublished book on your TBR that you're excited for?

Right, so in my head and on goodreads, I have two separate lists. The one I call my TBR contains only books I already own and have yet to read and all the unpublished books I can't wait to read fall into my wishlist. So my number one unpublished wishlist read at the moment would have to be Waistcoats and Weaponry by Gail Carriger, book number three in the Finishing School series!

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

Probably The Hobbit.

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends you?

Friday Brown by Vikki Wakefield I'd say. There was a stage where EVERYONE was recommending that book to me! Unfortunately, I've just not been in the mood/had time to read it yet!

A book on your TBR that you're dying to read?

Northern Lights (aka. The Golden Compass) by Philip Pullman!!

How many books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

On my to-read shelf I have only 29 books, but on my wishlist-reads shelf I have 211!

I now tag Holly from Lost in a Library, Cat from Through a Cat's Eyes, Lucy from Queen of Contemporary and Ruby from Feed Me Books Now! :)

Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo


  1. I was reading through this thinking "I really want to do this" THANKS FOR TAGGING ME!
    Friday Brown sounds amazing! Hope you enjoy reading it in the future!

  2. OOOH THIS TAG WILL MAKE ME CRY. If I ever do it. Because the amount of books on my TBR KILLS ME ROCKY IT REALLY DOES.
    P.S have you read The Catcher in the Rye? I just dropped a reference. :P
    and same.
    The Hobbit and the entire LotR series, have not read - will never read bc not for me.

    I sent you Friday Brown YEARS AGO.



    1. Awwww *pats head* Nope, not read it. Is it good? :p Why aren't they for you?! I thought fantasy would be right up your street?! AND, YES, I'M SO EXCITED!!

      I know. I'm so ashamed.

  3. I really need to read more but I never have the calm.


    1. You just need to find the right book and you'll be set!

  4. I did this tag too!! I love your responses :) The Hobbit has been on my TBR for such a long time as well! Glad I found your blog, new follower!!
