The main reason for this post is I have nothing to post. Last week I read a total of 19% in one book. (Hopefully I’ll get it read before Thursday.)
TO BE READ TAG
- How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Keep track? I don’t really keep track. I’m trying, but there are tons of freebies on my Kindle, and some still written on sticky notes that I haven’t gotten on my Goodreads to read list yet.
- Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
As of Christmas last year both! Half on my shelves and half on Ken (My kindle. Get it? He’s a plastic fake imitation.)
It’s totally random, except for arcs. I always read those first and I try to read them in the order I get them. I usually can’t wait to read them, so I just write the review and save it for a month before the publication date.
4 A book that’s been on your TBR the longest?
I’m going by Goodreads, so these are ones that have been on my list for a little over a year. (as opposed to been there for years) American Gods, The Name of the Wind, Darkest Minds, The Way of Kings, Monstrous (Not out yet, but been on my list for over a year), Snuff By Terry Pratchett (I got it for Christmas right after it came out two years ago, but I’m still I’m but saving it!)
Vicious By VE Schwab. I love a good villain or antihero.
- A book in your TBR strictly because of it’s beautiful cover.
- A book in your TBR that you never plan on reading.
I want/plan to read them all! (Well maybe not all the freebies on my Kindle)
2015 is going to be a super year for books! I can’t wait for: The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard 1), Fairest (Cinder 3.5), Six of Crows (Dregs 1 Grisha spinnoff), The Copper Gauntlet (Iron Trial 2), and Lady Midnight (Dark Artifices 1)
- A book in your TBR that everyone recommends to you.
10. Number of books in your TBR.
Okay, I might be a book hoarder, but I recently cleaned off all of my bookcases, so it’s not nearly as bad as it was. I think my willingness to part with some books proves I’m not really a hoarder. That’s what I’m telling myself anyway.
183 Owned not read

THE BOOKSHELF TAG
- Pick one book that helped introduce you to a new genre.
Hunger Games. The book that started it all. After that I was addicted to Young Adult
- Find a book that you want to reread.
Harry Potter, Terry Pratchett, Jim Butcher
Yes, Chaos Walking *sniffles*
- If your house was burning down and all of your family and pets were safe, which book would you go back inside to save?
A photo book. I don’t have any books that are worth anything or that I’m overly sentimental about. (Oddly enough, because I’m sentimental about everything)
- Is there one book on your bookshelf that brings back fond memories
The Hobbit, Narnia, Harry Potter. (I have a good memory and all of these have happy memories attached. Being read them when I was little and listening to Harry Potter with my dad.)
So many! Harry Potter, Christopher Pike, Pratchett, Butcher, Clare, Asimov, I’ll just list all of my favorite authors here.
- Do you have any autographed books?
Nope. I’ve never been to a book signing. One day!
- Find the book that you have owned the longest.
Grimm’s Fairy Tales (which used to be my mom’s)
10. Is there a book by an author that you never imagined you would read or enjoy?
Mortal Instruments. Everything I’d heard about it didn’t sound like me, I’m not really one for romance, but I loved the world and the characters.
I’m tagging everyone! Hehe! I can’t just list people, because I’d feel terrible if I forgot anyone, so everyone is tagged. If you want to do it go ahead.
When was the last time you were in a reading slump? What book got you out of it? My last one was in February and I was saved by the Hunger Games.
