The TBR Tag!

Hey everyone! Today, I've got a fun post for you. Liza at Reading With ABC and Jess at Lovin Los Libros both tagged me, so I figured fate was trying to tell me something if TWO people tagged me :D So, here goes!

How Do You Keep Track Of Your TBR Pile?

Goodreads, but also I have an Excel spreadsheet, a Word document, and a blog post that I do at the beginning of every year. I need to start doing my 2015 one...

Is Your TBR Mostly E-book or Print?

A healthy mix of both, honestly.

How Do You Determine Which Book From Your TBR to Read Next?

For review books, it's chronological order. The way my blog schedule works, I review ARCs on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday (and sometimes Thursday). Friday, I review post-published books. For those, there is no "order". I really CHOOSE those, whereas with review copies, I go in chronological order. Like, I have a June 2015 ARC right now... won't get to that one until every single review copy with a publication date before June 2015 is reviewed.

A Book That's Been On Your TBR The Longest?

I know. I have had a copy since the release date, too. But this will be rectified shortly, since book three is coming out soon! See, I was being strategic...

A Book That You've Recently Added To Your TBR?

Check out that coverrrrrr. Also, fantasy! Although it sounds a lot like Trial by Fire...

A Book On Your TBR Strictly Because Of Its Beautiful Cover?

I have no idea what this book is about. I hear it's fantasy? Which works for me!

A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan On Really Reading?

This doesn't happen often, but here is a good example...

I WANT to read this book (I have a hardcover copy with this original cover), but it's part of a series, and the covers changed, and ehhhh...

An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for:

ALL OF THEM. But here is one...


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


A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you:

Guys. GUYS. I know. I have a copy and everything. It's okay.

A Book On Your TBR That You're Dying To Read?

I've answered this already. Here is another book:

Third book, yo.

The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

According to Goodreads, 274.

I'm Going To Tag....

(Sorry if you've already been tagged or have already done the post! Also, don't feel pressured or obligated - I don't want to frustrate anyone with a tag!)

The TBR tag is a feature that was created by DanaSquare and A Perfection Called Books :)


  1. Aw, I love this post :D Thank you so much for sharing Alyssa. <3 I haven't decided yet if I'm doing this TBR thing. I have been tagged. Weeks ago (A) but I'm not ready, as I don't think I can answer all the questions :p Sigh. Maybe one day :D We'll see ;p ANYWAY. You are awesome and I love this post so much :D And agree with a lot of it too. <3 WAAAAAAIT. You tagged me too? Damn. Now I am tagged twice as well, lol. I shall maybe to it. Maaaaybe. We'll see. I'm feeling way too lazy these days :p anyway. Love this :) HAH. Allegiant. You shouldn't read it. I didn't care much about how it ended, but I hated how Four was treated in this book. DO NOT APPROVE. He deserves so much more.

    1. Haha, thank you! And YES! I did indeed tag you! Mwahahaha >:) I know how you feel though - it took me a few weeks to get this post up.

      I won't be reading Allegiant anytime soon. It's not for me!

  2. Ah I was tagged in this, but I still haven't done it! I absolutely loved Antigoddess, I think you might enjoy it! Magnolia is all kinds of gorgeous, hope you have a great weekend!!!
    -Jon from Bookish Antics!

    1. I might give it a try eventually... made when the series is complete.

      Thank you, Jon!

  3. I'm picking up Evolution today at my library! I'm going to binge read books 1 and 2 before 3 comes out. :) Wow. That Magnolia cover is stunning! As is An Ember in the Ashes!

    I haven't read Allegiant either and am not sure if I plan to either... I DO want to read The Distance Between Us though! It's been on my TBR FOREVER! LOL.

    1. Binge-reading the series is a great idea! And I hope Magonia and Ember are amazing... and Distance! We need to read that one especially lol

  4. I enjoyed Antigoddess, and I'm definitely going to pick up Mortal Gods (despite liking the first cover more than the second); but if you're not really interested in it, might as well skip and move on to something you're excited about, right? Great list! :)

    1. I'm glad to hear that! But yeah, I don't know if I'll end up reading it :D Thank you!


I love comments! I will always try and reply to your comments, as well as leave some comment love on your blog! :)

Also, this an award and tag free blog. While I am flattered that you would think of me, I really do not have the time to follow up. Thank you!
