The TBR (To Be Read) Tag – Tagged by our very own Amy!!!

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

K- Uh…I don’t. I have three TBRs. One on my phone, one on my Kindle (books I have already purchased) and our Goodreads one. I like to think of it as ‘controlled chaos’.

C- Simple answer is I don’t! Actually I have more than one TBR pile so really I have no chance of keeping track of anything. We of course have a OUaBB Goodreads one, which is my main go-to. But I also have a Kindle one and I even have a TBR pile in the notes on my phone! Ahem…

Is your TBR mostly E-book or print?

K- It’s nearly 100% e-book! So easy. 

C- E-Book all the way!

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

K- I’m a mood reader so I can’t really plan ahead. Often i’ll end up going for a completely random book that’s not even on my TBR. 

C- Well… It’s kind of like organized chaos. Usually I just pick one on a ‘whim’ or a ‘feeling’ depending on what genre I’m in the mood for. Otherwise I’ll pick one due to peer pressure…. Or I just bypass my TBR completely and buy something completely random!

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

K- Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid, #1) by Richelle Mead. I have picked this up a couple of times but I just can’t seem to get past the first chapter. 

C- Burned (Fever Series #7) by Karen Marie Moning. I loved the first 5 books in this series. The sixth was iffy for me and this seventh book has had it’s publication date pushed back a few times… So it’s been on my TBR for a very long time and I’m not completely sure that I’ll actually read it

A book that you’ve recently added to your TBR?

K- After (The After Series, #1) by Anna Todd. I have heard great things about this book so I’m considering it even though I usually avoid romance series. 

C- Truth or Beard (The Winston Brothers series #1) by Penny Reid. I love all things Penny Reid and have just finished reading a short story which is actually the beginning of this book… It’s not out till next year but already I can’t wait!

A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover?

K- I don’t really have any?!  A lot of them have great covers but there’s nothing on there that I picked just because of the cover. The Collectors’ Society by Heather Lyons has a beautiful cover but the story also sounds amazing.

 

C- Hmmm…. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. This cover captured me from the first time I saw it in a book store!

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

K- The entire Outlander series. I LOVE the TV show but because of my love for the tv show and the length of the books I will probably (definitely) never read the books. Also, we cheated and read ahead to find out what happens so I don’t have the burning need to ‘know’ what’s coming up.  

C- I’m the same here… The Outlander series. I loved the idea of reading this series and a while back we were considering buddy reading the first book, but I think for me, this is going to be a TV only format.

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

K- The Road by Jay McLean. More Than Forever was my favourite book this year so I’m excited for anything Jay McLean writes. 

C- Too many!!! But we are big Nicole Peeler fans and her new book Jinn & Juice is out next year. Beyond excited for this one!

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

K- The Bronze Horseman. Why have I STILL not read this book?! I’m just not ready for the emotional commitment I think. 

C- Ahem.. The Bronze Horseman. Everyone keeps telling me to read this book and I want to read it…

A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?

K- The Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Everyone loves that series. 

C- The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. Kristal keeps telling me I need to read this. It IS going to happen!

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

K- The Collectors’ Society by Heather Lyons (Ooh this book gets two mentions!). Amy read it and loved it so I can’t wait to read this. It’s next up on my list actually! Excited. 

C- In the Land of the Long White Cloud by Sarah Lark. I love a good historical read and I’m intrigued by this series which focuses on colonial 19th century New Zealand.

The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

K- Only 176 🙂 We’re doing really well! 

C- We aren’t outrageous at all with only 176!
