The TBR Tag

Hello all! Today I bring you another tag! I was tagged by the lovely Kelly at BibliophileBliss to do the TBR tag. So as the name says, the next 10 questions will be about my To-Be-Read books, which is ridiculously humongous. Let’s do this! 

1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile? 

Most people say they use Goodreads for this but I might be the exception. Instead I have a TRB jar (well, two, but I’ll explain that later). Every time I get a book I write it down and put it into the jar. I only use Goodreads to mark those books that haven't been published yet.

2. Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?  

PRINT BOOKS. I can’t stand ebooks even though I know they are quite handy, but I’m a print books type of girl. Sorry

3.  How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next? 

Here is where I explain the two TRB jars. In one I have the titles I want to read ASAP and in the other the ones I want to read but they can wait. I don’t know if this makes any sense at all but it works for me. So each month I pick two or three titles from the jar I want to read ASAP and only one from the other TBR jar.

4.  A book that's been in your TBR the longest. 

Eh…….. no idea LOL Probably The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. That book has been in my TBR for like centuries. I’m not even kidding. I bought it in the Annual Book Fair in Madrid when I was 16 maybe? And I’m 23 right now… do the math   :/

5.  A book you recently added to your TBR.  

Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea. I saw this book in one of The Book Hoarder’s videos. It’s a middle grade book, which I’ve been into lately.

6.  A book in your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover. 

Only one? Hahahaha I will say Stitching Snow by R. C. Lewis

7.  A book in your TBR that you never plan on reading. 

Most likely The Mists of Avalon because is been so so long since I’ve bought it and I don’t know… maybe someday I would pick it up but right now I don’t feel like it

8.  An unpublished book in your TBR that you're excited for. 

Talon by Julie Kawaga. I will only say this: DRAGONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

9.  A book in your TBR that everyone recommends to you. 

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. Everyone raves about Patrick Ness books but I’ve never read any of his work even though I own almost all of his books.

10.  Number of books in my TBR 

Please, don’t judge me….. There are 206 (physical) books in my TRB pile…. Well, now that I got that off my chest I feel relieved =)

And with that concludes this tag! Thanks again Kelly for nominating me and I'm tagging some people as well:

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
