The TBR Tag


This tag was created by Dana (Danasquare) & Rachel (A Perfection Called Books). I saw a couple of my blogging friends do this tag on their blogs and knew I had to participate!


How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
I have a notebook where I list my review books and I try to keep that up to date. I highlight the books off once I finish them, so it's fun seeing all the books that get read. ;)

Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
Probably ebook, if I count all the free Kindle books I've bought. ;)

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I try to read the books with the closest blog tour dates, any buddy read books, and the review books I've had the longest, first. Book That's Been On Your TBR List The Longest
I have no idea...maybe Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers?

A Book You Recently Added To Your TBR
Petticoat Detective by Margaret Brownley, thanks to Netgalley! :)

A Book In Your TBR Strictly Because Of Its Beautiful Cover 
The Icecutter's Daughter (Land of Shining Water #1) by Tracie Peterson

A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading 
None that I can think of right now...

There are a ton, but these are probably the four I'm most excited to read:

Sabotaged by Dani Pettrey
An Uncertain Choice by Jody Hedlund
From the Start by Melissa Tagg

A Book On Your TBR That Basically Everyone’s Read But You
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers

A Book On Your TBR That Everyone Recommends To You
The Uncommon Heroes series by Dee Henderson

A Book On Your TBR That You’re Dying To Read
A Broken Kind of Beautiful by Katie Ganshert

How Many Books are on Your Goodreads TBR Shelf? 
1389. Yikes, that's a lot! That's what happens when I click "want to read" on tons of books, including ones I don't even own yet! ;)

Hope you had fun reading this post!


  1. 1300+ Books on your To Be Read?! Wow, you're worse than me, LOL! I used to have tons on Goodreads, but I've really been paring it down to books I think I will actually be reading in the near future.

    1. Lol! Yeah, I've felt like I should do that too - delete books I don't own/will never read. There are some books that I don't even know why I added them!

  2. Loved your answers, Melanie! Oh, I forgot to include Checkmate on my list, can't wait for that one!

    I hope you get to read A Broken Kind Of Beautiful soon, it's so amazing, I think you'll love it! :D

    1. I loved your answers, too! This is such a fun tag! :) Checkmate is probably my most anticipated book for the rest of the year - I cannot wait to read it!

      Thanks! I'm hoping I'll like it, since I've heard great things about it. :)

  3. Fun tag, Melanie! Thanks for sharing. :)

    1. Thanks for commenting, Rissi! I had fun answering this tag's questions. :)

  4. Love that you did this too! The Uncommon Heroes Series and A Broken Kind of Beautiful are both so good! Hope you get to read them soon!

    1. Thanks, Abbi! I'm hoping to reading A Broken Kind of Beautiful sometime this year. :)
