I was tagged by Ashleigh @ A Frolic Through Fiction to do the TBR Book Tag. Thanks Ashleigh. 🙂
1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
I use my Google Play Wishlist to keep track of books I want. Other than that, mostly Goodreads. I also use Fict Fact to track the series or authors I love. It’s very useful although the date some times not too accurate.
2. Is your TBR mostly print or E-book?
E-book. I love prints, but I more often read on my phone because I could just read anywhere. It is also the faster way to get new releases.
3. How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
It usually depends on what genre I want to read at that time. Most of the times I enjoy fantasy, but there are times when all I want to read are legal thrillers.
4. A book that has been on your TBR the longest?
Jeffrey Archer’s Only Time Will Tell.
I’ve been meaning to read it since it came out in 2011, but I just can’t get into it. I don’t know, man, I love Jeffrey Archer’s books. He is one of the few people I count as great storytellers and not just authors, and I still plan to read it (just not now :p).
5. A book you recently added to your TBR?
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo.
The title for the second book in the Six of Crows series has just recently been announced.
Obviously, there’s no cover yet, but I am very excited about this book so I just have to put it here.
6. A book strictly on your TBR strictly for it’s cover?
I don’t have any, I think. Even if a book has a pretty cover, I will read the synopsis before deciding to read it.
7. A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?
I plan to read them all.
8. An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?
Tell The Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan.
I mean… look at that cover. LOOK AT IT. I will definitely get this one on print, preferably hardcover. Also, it’s Sarah Rees Brennan.
Tell The Wind and Fire is a retelling of A Tale of Two Cities, it’s about a girl named Lucie who … (ramblings removed). I will talk about it for days if anyone would listen, but just check out the goodreads page I linked above and my old post for link to an excerpt.
9. A book on your TBR that everyone has read but you?
World After by Susan Ee.
I feel like I am the only person who never read the Penryn & the End of Days trilogy. I just finished the first and second books, and they were soo good, especially the first one. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series.
10. A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?
This got to be Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.
This book received so much hype and nearly everyone who read it was obsessed with how good it was. I haven’t read sci-fi in a while so it’s going to be refreshing to go back to that genre.
It also has a unique format with maps, illustration, and reports, which is why I avoid buying the e-book version.
11. How many books are currently on your Goodreads TBR list?
Only 17. :p
I mainly use Goodreads to track my read list, and not my TBR so I rarely update it.

P.S. It’s okay if you don’t want to do it. It’s no big deal. 😀
If you have done this tag before, send me the link so I can check it out.

Thanks for tagging me, Windie!
Now that you mentioned Google Play Wishlist, I need to check that app on my phone. Looks like a convenient carrier of TBRs too!
Oh and I love the graphics you did here! Those sienna brown and teal boxes! How do you do it? I’m not patient with learning html codes so my blog’s design is boring lol
I think your blog looks good already!
Don’t worry about your html skill. To be honest, I wouldn’t know how to do it either if I didn’t run fan-sites for 6 years. lol.
I’m basically using border-radius on div. Here’s the code if you want to try it out, make sure you switch to html editor/text editor first though: https://jsfiddle.net/9v3rhL6q/1/
You can change the color with other colors (check out http://www.color-hex.com/ for hex code). Have fun!
Let me know if it’s not working or you want to ask anything. I might do a html tips post or something like that in the future if it’s of any interest.
OMG YOU’RE A SAVIOUR! I’m sure that post will benefit a looot! I will try this soon and credit you for this.
Fan-sites?? Wow! What kind? 😀
You don’t need to credit me. No worries. 😀
I ran a fan-site for Taylor Swift and another one for British band, McFly. xD But they both have been closed because the host decided to shut down.
