I have been tagged by Erin from Lit Slave blog to make another list!! Well, kind of to explain my current “TBR list” and you know I love making lists. This is a list about my main list. LOL!
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Ummm… I make lists? Lists upon lists. I have about 5 current TBR lists, 3 that I posted on my blog like MY “TO BE READ” LIST, 17 books from my TBR list and Next 10 books on my TBR list, and 2 that I created “collections” for on my Kindle App. And I’m successfully working my way through them. I just checked them all and WOW. I have read a bunch since I made them! But sticking to my TBR lists and ONLY my TBR lists? Well. You know me. I *squirrel* easy with all of these new releases, so… I think I need a “book-Dom” to keep me in book-line.
Is your TBR mostly print or e-books?
Allllll ebooks. I’ve become spoiled with the ability to read with no hands, except to “flip” an ebook page. And I LOVE to be able to highlight my favorite parts, and make notes without ruining the actual book. But I do miss that decadent book smell.
A book that has been on your TBR list the longest.
Easy! The first one that comes to mind is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green *gasp!!!* I knowwww right?!!! I’m missing out on something AH-MAZING all because I’m ascared. Chickety chicken. *pok pok* Can’t do it. I’m dying to ’cause I hear it’s pure book magnificence, I’ve one-clicked it, I’ve stared at the cover longingly…. and I’m dying to watch the movie. But NOPE. Nope to it all… for now. I have a few more that I’m dying to read too, but again… I fear the tears (like God Shaped Hole: A Novel by Tiffany DeBartolo). Oh and Bullet to the Heart (No Mercy) by Lea Griffith. I’m so excited for this one. And scared of it’s darkness!!!
A book you’ve recently added to your TBR
Lots! But if we’re talking about this week? Made: A Sempre Novel by J.M. Darhower (mafia romance!), Last Light (The Night Owl Trilogy) by M. Pierce (sequel to one of my favorite books!) and the “Uncaged Love” series (MMA fighters!!)
A Book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover.
Ha!! Another easy answer because I saw this one yesterday and about fell over. Below the Belt: Worth the Fight Series. Just LOOOOOOOOOK at this cover. He. Is. GORGEOUS!!! All… ROAWR!!!! More MMA fighters to tickle my alpha protective bad-boy fancy, and I’ll just pretend they stay this pretty even with all of those punches to the face. *snort*
A book on your TBR that you never planned on reading.
Hrmm… I guess… well anything on my TBR list I intend to read… they made it there because I’m either totally enamored by the blurb, or the book has come HIGHLY recommended by my trusted fellow readers, but I’d have to say… Years by LaVyrle Spencer. MOODY HERO ALERT!!! HIGHLY recommended by many here, including my mom and my aunt that never steer me wrong, and it’s been on my TBR list for a couple of years now and yet… I haven’t even started it. Maybe it’s because it’s a historical. Supposedly it will make me cry and give me THE most amazing book-hangover, so… really. What am I waiting for?
An unpublished book in your TBR that you’re excited about.
I’m always excited about ANYTHING Colleen Hoover releases. I absolutely have LOVED EVERYTHING I’ve read by her (see my Colleen Hoover reviews here), so I’m anxiously awaiting her next release Confess: A Novel which is expected to be released on March 10th 2015. Also the next Maddox brother book by Jamie McGuire (spinoff from her Beautiful Disaster Series). *squeeeeeee!!!!*
A book that everyone’s read but you.
*sigh* I’m so embarrassed to admit these but here goes. I haven’t read Gone Girl: A Novel by Gillian Flynn and, well, you already know this one, but yep… The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, makes today’s list yet again. I swear for a book I’ve never read, it sure shows up over and over again on my blog. *snort*
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.
Over the last year, I’d have to say the most often recommended books are Monster in His Eyes by J.M. Darhower (’cause it’s supposedly nice and dark and many come out of it in a love fog) and Frenched by Melanie Harlow (I hear it’s just a plain ol’ GREAT contemporary romance novel that’s not too much of anything, but just enough of everything) and Driven (The Driven Trilogy Book 1) by K. Bromberg (this one seems to have put EVERYONE in a romance angst frenzy…)
A book on your TBR that you’re DYING to read.
I am DYING to read Unbeloved (Undeniable Book 4) by Madeline Sheehan. I have NO idea why I haven’t read it yet. I just know when it was released it was Book Bash week, and I was out of reading commission. And then I squirreled and squirreled and squirreled. But this is one of my FAVORITE authors, and the Undeniable Series is one of my favorite dark and gritty romance series, and THIS trio? They were the ones I was most interested in. Finally a book about them, and I get to read it!!!!
So that’s it my friends. That was the last question that I could answer…
Now… tell me what’s on your TBR list. Feel free to answer it in detail like I have above, or just give me a few tidbits, and why.
