The TBR Tag

A while back I saw this tag and thought it would be fun to do it. In case you don’t know, TBR means To Be Read. Here we go!!

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

I have a separate shelf on my bookshelf where I keep all my unread books and I keep my current read(s) near my bedside. I also use goodreads, not often though.

2. Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?

A little bit of both.

3. A book that has been on your TBR the LONGEST.

The Peppered Moth by Margaret Drabble. I tried reading it but I was struggling with the plot so I returned it back to the shelf.

4. A book you recently added to your TBR.

A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James

5. A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover.

The Secret Keepers by Trenton Lee Stewart.

6. A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading.

I genuinely don’t think there is a book on there I wouldn’t want to read. Maybe put off reading at the moment but in the long run I’ll get to it.

7. An unpublished book on your TBR that you are excited for.

I have none.

8. A book on your TBR that basically everyone’s read but you.

It’s a tie between Great Expectations by Charles Dickens and Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.

9. A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read.

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz.

10. How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf.


What’s the current state of your tbr? I tag everyone who wants to do this, let me know if you do it so I can check it out.

Happy Weekend! ☺

  1. You have a great list of TBR….The Brief Wondorous Life of Oscar Wao, I would recommend you to start with that. My TBR consists of;

    1. Karl Marx by Francis Wheen (dying to read this one)
    2. Interventions by Kofi Annan
    3. My Father by Juan Pablo Escobar

    I have a listed them down so whenever I tick/cross any that I read

    1. I’m actually currently reading The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, I’m loving it so far!!
      The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is my all time favorite book, you’ll definitely love it!
      I love the idea of writing them down. Happy reading!

  2. My book club read The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao a few months ago but I still remember that I loved the writing even if I wasn’t too crazy about the story. I look forward to hearing your thoughts about the book, once you are done reading it.

    Its impressive just how many classics you have. That is one genre that I stay away from lol.

      1. No,I have only participated in TBC once for Stay With Me.I’m in another private bookclub though.I hope you enjoyed this book.Which is your favourite classic?

  3. I only know which ones I’ve got unread through my goodreads lists and the kindle πŸ™‚ cause a lot of them are not in print πŸ˜€

    I also think that having a book you don’t plan to read on your TBR is kind of pointless πŸ™‚ so I probably wouldn’t be able to name one either πŸ˜€ and I also don’t really know much of the books that are soon coming out – despite being a book blogger for nearly two years now πŸ˜€

    I am not a fan of Dickens at all, and I did not enjoy Wuthering Heights, so hopefully, you’re not missing out too badly on those πŸ˜€

    28 books! Wow. Amazing! I think the only reason I have so many is because they’re on the Kindle, and I don’t see how many there are :DD

    1. I recently did a Kindle cleanse and removed over 50 books. I found I had close to 400 books and I was shocked.

      I was told since I enjoy reading Jane Austen I’d love Wuthering Heights. I’m sorry you didn’t like them, I hope you got better books.

      Thank you for your comment. x
