TBR Tag - My To-Be Read List

So, A Perfection Called Books made a fun TBR Tag post with some questions for other bloggers and readers to participate in. Since I'm finishing up a beta read and won't have a new review for you guys today, I thought I would share some of my answers to this little challenge. I don't really have many people to tag, but I'd love to see everyone's answers anyway! It's fun seeing what everyone is reading this year!

The Questions!

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
I use Goodreads, as well as my Google Calendar. While Goodreads is great for putting books I'm just mildly interested and want to pick up someday, my Google Calendar organizes the upcoming books so I can actually keep a reading schedule.

Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
It's sort of a mix. I have a lot of review requests come in as ebooks, so that takes up a good portion of the list, but I also buy random print books at thrift stores and get them from events, so there are still plenty of print editions. I put them in my list in the same format I own them. If it's just something I want to read and haven't bought yet, I usually just do the e-book version.

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
My Google Calendar knows all. I organize all the upcoming reviews and reads on that, and just pick which one is next. Sometimes something will REALLY catch my eye though and it cuts in line, so it's not a perfect system.

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

Oh dear lol. Uh, Clockwork Prince has been on my list since 2012. I actually own it, and started reading it once, but then college got crazy and I set it aside and apparently never got back to it. I keep meaning to, but then I move and it gets boxed back up... Lol I feel like this is reader shaming. I'm sorry poor little book! I didn't mean to neglect you!

A Book You Recently Added To Your TBR

So, Storm Siren was the most recent book on my list. Another blogger reviewed it, and I was actually pretty interested in giving it a shot, even after their thoughts. It had a really cool cover. What can I say? I'm a sucker for pretty things.

A Book In Your TBR Strictly Because Of Its Beautiful Cover
I love pretty things, so there are quite a few in my To-Read list based on their appearances (I'm an artist, what can I say? I really like pretty shiny things). This one was actually on there twice because I added it at two different times, so I think that's noteworthy. I really don't remember what it was about, all I know is I find the cover really striking.

A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading
I've actually read it before, so I don't know why I put it in my TBR pile. I think I keep telling myself someday I'll re-read it because I can't remember what I liked about it. But the more new books I get, the farther down my list it seems to go.

An Unpublished Book On Your TBR That You’re Excited For
It's not on my Goodreads list, but it's still in my Google To-Read pile until she puts the info up ;). I am really excited to see where this story goes, since I think the few things I didn't like in the first book will finally be resolved. Elements is still in the works, but I am hoping to get my paws on it soon....

A Book On Your TBR That Basically Everyone’s Read
But You  I want to read it, but it costs so much! I was so bummed that it's like a $9 ebook. An ebook! *sigh* I may buy the print version, but it will have to wait until a good pay day. In the meantime, I will just wait while everyone else reads. *does not sulk* *okay, sulks*

A Book On Your TBR That Everyone Recommends To You
I own it, it's in my Nook. I'm waiting to buy the paperback when it comes out as well to complete my collection. But I know as soon as I read it I'm going to sulk because the next book isn't out yet, so I've starved myself from the story line for the sake of the greater good! Or, that's what I've told myself. I also sort of want to read it during November as my NaNoWriMo inspiration. So there is that also.

A Book On Your TBR That You’re Dying To Read
Also Cress. I really want to read it. >.> It's like a cookie, just sitting there... waiting for me...

How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
131 currently. That number is probably going to jump though in the next week when I start prowling the Goodreads giveaways again. *shifty eyes*
