TBR Tag

tbr tag.jpg
The TBR Tag was created by my wonderful co-blogger Dana from Dana Square and me! We're just going to ask you some questions about your TBR. It's fun! And it's a tag so once you do it, tag your friends :D 

*all of these answers should be found on your TBR list

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I use Goodreads! It's such an easy way to keep track of my reads :)

Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?

I prefer to add books to my Goodreads TBR in hardcover print version for the sake of consistency. Most of those books I haven't even bought (yet) or own. Most of them (I'd like to say half) aren't even out yet...

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

I pick either the next ARC I need to read or whichever book I most want to read at the moment that I have in my possession or on my iPad.

A Book That's Been On Your TBR List The Longest 


I added this to my account on October 28th, 2012!! By this point, I'd have been on GR for maybe two months? I still haven't read this book because there are so many mixed reviews. I'll get to it eventually.

A Book You Recently Added To Your TBR

The Madman's Daughter sounds intriguing! It sounds creepy and interesting and awesome. It's historical fiction too which I love! I won an arc of the third book, A Cold Legacy, so I hope to read this series soon.


A Book In Your TBR Strictly Because Of Its Beautiful Cover


The Start of Me and You looks so cute and adorable! Just look at that cover. Gorgeous <3

A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading

I've heard way too many bad things about Matched to even consider reading it. I already know who the girl ends up with anyway. What's the point??



An Unpublished Book On Your TBR That You’re Excited For

Words can not describe how excited I am for this book!! It sounds epic. Roman-esque AND high fantasy? I'm in!!

A Book On Your TBR That Basically Everyone’s Read But You 

The first book that always comes to mind as "a book that basically everyone's read but you" is Fangirl! Everyone says "RACHEL, READ IT." Patience. I shall read it when I'm ready. Soon.


A Book On Your TBR That Everyone Recommends To You

Everyone recommends to me Anna and the French Kiss! I'm anxious to read this because of all these recs and gushing and fangirling over these books and Stephanie Perkins in general. I can't wait!!

A Book On Your TBR That You’re Dying To Read

I'm dying to read this book!! I have been since I discovered in on GR a month or two ago. Luckily I have an ARC now, so I can hopefully read it soon!! I've heard nothing but amazing things for this book so far. :)

  2. thank you so much for the tag <3 I was so busy reading your list that I didn't even notice my name on the tag at first. You SHOULD read Fangirl because it's light and fun - nothing heavy or something that has a lot of thinking and understanding to do. Haha! Definitely doing this. Loved your list :)

  4. I love the questions in this tag - and your answers to them! I might have to do this tag too (even though I'm not specifically tagged, LOL) because it is SO COOL. And yes, you definitely have to read Anna and the French Kiss! I do recommend that you marathon the entire series so that you will experience all the feels in one sitting!

  6. Thanks for sharing! I tried to participate http://steampunksparrow.blogspot.com/2014/08/tbr-tag-my-to-be-read-list.html . I had to laugh because Fangirl was my book everyone kept telling me to read too.

  7. I really want to read Fangirl as well (next month to be specific), so maybe we can read it together?

  8. Oh, sounds like a nice tag. I'll do it next week, probably. :) Also, maan, you girl! You have to read Matched! At least the first book, haha. It was good, even though there are so many negative reviews. ;)

    1. Yeah, I read the first book a year ago and I think that at least that first one is worth reading.

  9. *clears throat* RACHEL, READ FANGIRL! :P

    Very fun tag! :D I might try it soon, if you don't mind ;)

  10. Yay! Thanks for the tag! I'm going to do it soon. It looks so fun! :) You definitely need to read Anna and The French Kiss, WHY HAVEN'T YOU READ IT, RACHEL? Go on then, pick it up. Read it. READ IT. RACHEL, READ. No pressure at all. ;D

    Psst. Unpopular opinion here but I really wouldn't recommend Fangirl. I feel weird because everyone's going all "READ IT" and then there's like this tiny voice coming from the back of the room saying "NO! Don't!" But then again, you can decide for yourself if you do read it...

  12. I use GR too ;) I usually pick randomly since I'm a mood reader ;) I hated Marked so I'm not reccing it. The sequel was just as awful if not more imo. BUUUUT! You may like it, Rachel. I can't veto it lol. EEEP! I ned to read Emery Lord's next novel ASAP BECAUSE OPEN ROAD SUMMER WAS JUS THE MOST WONDERFUL (FEEEELS!!!) I just read Fangirl and I looooved it! I didn't love Eleanor and Park at all, but this one? So good! I loved Lola more than Anna. Oops. SORRY NOT SORRY :D And yes! I can't wait for Red Queen either ;)

    1. GR is my savior XD I need to read Perkins' books soon. I've heard nothing but great things about them. RED QUEEN LOOKS AMAZING.

  13. THIS SOUNDS SO FUN RACHEL! Thank you for tagging me - I can't wait to do it! ;)

    And gah...we both really need to read Anna and the French Kiss apparently. ;) I haven't read it either, but the glowing reviews of Stephanie's work just makes me want to give it a try!

    And I am applauding your choice for not reading Matched. ;) It's practically a rip-off of The Giver + a love triangle and some teenage angst thrown in for good measure. :|

    1. Same!! Everyone loves Anna... haha thanks, I'm not really looking forward to reading Matched although I feel like it's something I need to do to understand everyone's hatred.

  14. Fangirl is AMAZING!!!! Read ASAP! You won't regret it, Rachel! :D

  15. Haha this looks like a fun tag. My tbr list is huge! Matched isn't that bad really, it's just more romance than dystopian.

    1. I like romance but not too much, so I'm not sure if this is the book for me....

  16. Anna and the French Kiss is adorable! It's definitely worth reading :) An Ember In The Ashes does sound epic, too, and I love that cover for The Start of Me and You.

    I'm definitely going to try to do this tag sometime this month :)

    1. I really want to read Anna! I'm dying for An Ember in the Ashes :D Start of Me and You is so pretty :) Yay!!

  17. I'm so sad that Matched gets so many bad reviews. It's actually one of my favorite series! The House of Night series used to be one of my favorites too, but I'm not a huge fan of the books now. The Madman's Daughter was amazing! I haven't read Fangirl yet, either . . . you're not alone!

    I was tagged by another blogger to do this, so I'm going to be answering these questions on my own blog soon. :)

  18. OMG. I might have to do this tag. I just want to actually be tagged first. lol

    Fangirl and Anna and the French Kiss are both really good. I also want to read The Start of You and Me.

    I was not a fan of the Matched books. The first half of Matched was a complete ripoff of The Giver, and the rest of it was just terrible. I honestly don't even know how it was published. It's the laughing stock of dystopia if you ask me.

  19. Ohmygosh RED QUEEN. I am SO excited for that book and I don't even know that much about it. I'm really hoping it's a good one because the synopsis sounds pretty great.

    READ FANGIRL. It's awesome, and Cath is pretty easy to relate to. I haven't read Anna and the French Kiss yet but I own it. Everyone says such awesome things about it and I feel so far behind. :B I'm just not a big contemporary fan so I don't read them/enjoy them as much as I enjoy high fantasy. I toootally added half of these to my TBR.

  20. I only include books I actually own on my tbr list on GR. Book I want to read but haven't bought/won/borrowed yet are on my wishlist shelf. You mention some amazing books, and it is true that Anna and the French Kiss is really worth your time :D

  21. Thank you for tagging me! I finally did this one and had so much fun doing it. The Start of Me and You really does have a stunning cover, it even makes me want to read it. I read Fangirl and seem to be one of the only people who didn't love it. I was not a fan. Red Queen does look amazing, want to read that one myself.

  23. I'm obviously a little late to when you originally did this, but I just posted my own so I figured I'd comment. Also, don't even bother with the House of Night series. I gave up partway through the series and it took a lot because I did want to know what happened, but I just couldn't keep reading it.

I read, value, and cherish each and every comment. Although I don't have time to respond to most of them, I make every effort to comment back on your blog! :)
