I have seen this book tag floating around the book blogosphere for about a year. As I’ve mentioned before, I love following book blogs and these types of posts are some of my favourite types to read! Here goes nothin’…..
HOW DO YOU KEEP TRACK OF YOUR TBR PILE?
I use Goodreads…I use Goodreads OBSESSIVELY. I have two categories for books on my TBR list. Books that I own go on my “to read” list. Books that I want to read but do not own yet go on in a separate category ( a”wish list”). I am really into thrifting books lately. I have come across some pretty awesome used book stores in my area and I usually spend my Saturday morning on a book hunt! Every time I find a book, I move them over from my “wish list” into my “to read” list.
I bet you are all in shock and awe at the creativity of my category titles….
IS YOUR TBR MOSTLY PRINT OR E-BOOK?
Print. I tried the e-book thing a few years back and was not a fan.
HOW DO YOU DETERMINE WHICH BOOK FROM YOUR TBR TO READ NEXT?
I usually end up choosing my next read by recommendation. I’ll come across a book while reading a blog and it’ll take priority. I also usually tend to follow Buzzfeed books. If a book comes up in an article, it’ll usually jump to the top of my to-read list. It also depends on my mood.
A BOOK THAT’S BEEN ON YOUR TBR THE LONGEST?
The Girl on the Train.
I know…I know…how can I be a mystery/suspense/thriller lover and not have read this book? From what everyone says, I will apparently love this book. I am gonna have to commit to reading it before the movie comes out in October.
A BOOK YOU RECENTLY ADDED TO YOUR TBR?
I just added the third Dublin murder squad novel by Tana French. It’s called Faithful Place.
A BOOK ON YOUR TBR STRICTLY BECAUSE OF ITS BEAUTIFUL COVER?
I have picked up a book in the store and looked at the synopsis based on the cover, but I have never added a book to my TBR list by one.
A BOOK ON YOUR TBR THAT YOU NEVER PLAN ON READING?
I plan on reading them all! It’s just a matter of how long it will take me….
AN UNPUBLISHED BOOK ON YOUR TBR THAT YOU’RE EXCITED FOR?
Jodi Picoult’s novel Small Great Things comes out in October and I cannot wait for that to come out! I know she isn’t considered a mystery/thriller author but her books are full of suspense with detailed plots. She always writes about “hot topic” issues and weaves a story surrounding them that is always incredible. I think I have only read one or two novels by her that I didn’t enjoy.
A BOOK ON YOUR TBR THAT EVERYONE HAS READ BUT YOU
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Again, I know…..
A BOOK ON YOUR TBR THAT EVERYONE RECOMMENDS TO YOU?
Same as above.
A BOOK ON YOUR TBR THAT YOU’RE DYING TO READ?
I am dying to read them all! So many books…so little time….
I am really looking forward to reading Fiona Barton’s The Widow. I have heard really good things.
HOW MANY BOOKS ARE ON YOUR GOODREADS SHELF?
And everyday I add a couple more……
My name is Samantha. I am a book addict.
