Heeeeeelllllo readers, it’s APRIL! How is it April?! This month I’m off to Dublin for the first time; well off to Ireland for the first time – do you know how exciting that is? Anyway, one other thing I have to look forward too is my ever growing TBR list and this tag I think is just going to make me feel worse about the ever growing stack I need to read – without further delay, shall we get stuck in?
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Erm, it’s basically my book suitcase, my email inbox, a list I keep on my laptop and a virtual list inside my brain. It’s a constantly evolving thing and it’s quite a natural thing – I read so many books I’m not to stressed about when I get round to them.
Is your TBR mostly print or eBook?
It really depends, my ARC copies come through mainly in ebook or mobi copies, the books I want to read are all mainly print, so a real mix actually.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I look at what I’ve promised to read next – if I haven’t I will just pick what I fancy next. It also depends on what I read last, if I’ve read a thriller I normally continue reading that genre, if it’s a romance I normally swap to something I can get my teeth stuck into that is REALLY different.
A book that’s been on your TBR the longest?
I think, the Silk Worm by Robert Galbraith? It’s been on there for so long, I can’t even remember when it made it there.
I’m not the kind of person to have a Goodreads account, because I just don’t look after it. If a book sticks in my brain long enough it’s part of the TBR.
A book you recently added to your TBR?
THIS ONEEEEE – Adam Spencer Ross meets Robyn Plummer in his Young Adult OCD Support Group and is desperately drawn to her. She, however has just been released from a residential psychiatric program—the kind for the worst, most difficult-to-cure cases; the kind that Adam and his fellow support group members will do anything to avoid joining. We see as they Adam tries save Robyn – and she if love will blossom. *SOUNDS AMAZING!*
A book on your TBR strictly because of it’s beautiful cover?
A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?
I think Ulysses (1922) by James Joyce. I just want to attempt this, at least once, but I will be surprised if I do.
An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?
I know this has been published, but seeing as it takes me around 12 months to get round to a TBR I’m going to allow this – Shallow Graves by Kali Wallace, looks incredible and I can’t wait to get round to it.
A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you?
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell – I STILL HAVEN’T READ THIS. Or Paper Towns by John Green.
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends you?
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Seriously guys, I’ll get to it, okay.
A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read?
I think, ‘This is where it ends, by Marieke Nijkamp.’ I really want to read this and I think it’ll be a book that creates a reaction and a conversation which I love on my blog.
How many books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
I don’t have one, ON PURPOSE. If I had one, I think I would lose the will to live? Instead I use my blog, a notebook with suggestions and a mental list so it doesn’t go out of control!
So there we go, a load of questions on my TBR and how I cope with it! If you want to complete this tag feel free just make sure to link back so I can read your awesome answers! HAPPY FRIDYAY.

Can I just say that I love the cover for The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B? The story sounds fascinating as well. I might have to add that as well hahahaha
How brave of you to actually confront your TBR pile! I step over mine and try to pretend it isn’t actually there – until I need to find the next book. But I MAY attempt this as a way of getting to grips with it…
Ah yes! The TBR list! The struggle is real, for as there are so many fantastic books out there, the list just gets longer and longer, and at times, you’re not sure if you’ll ever get around to some of them on there. I really liked this post, and I wish you luck with your TBR journey.
I ‘collect’ books onto my TBR by putting them onto a Pinterest board I made up. Someone gave me the idea months ago as I was scribbling them dos on scraps of papers, post its etc up until then. If I live forever I might even get round to reading all of them on there 😉
