How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Honestly, most of my TBR books are simply in my room or somewhere else around my house. I try not to accept too many review books anymore, so a lot of my TBR pile is the tons of books I just need to get around to reading.
Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?
I have an e-reader with some books I need to read, but most of my TBR is definitely in print.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
It tends to come down to whatever I’m most interested in. Sometimes I just really want to finally read something, while other times I pick a book based on how quick I think it will be. Without too many review books, it’s a bit easier to just pick and choose.
A Book That’s Been On Your TBR List The Longest
Since I don’t have a huge TBR list online, I don’t know what book I’ve had for the longest amount of time without reading. I can say that one book I hope to read soon that I’ve had for what seems like forever is Holly’s Inbox by Holly Denham (it’s fiction, by the way).
A Book You Recently Added To Your TBR
The most recent book I bought and just recently finished reading was Isla and the Happily Ever After. However, I just picked up Horns by Joe Hill from the library and hope to read that soon.
A Book In Your TBR Strictly Because of Its Beautiful Cover
I tend to count my TBR as items I’ve bought and still need to read, so I don’t usually buy a book JUST because of it’s cover.
A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading
Again, I do hope to read all the books I currently own. I know I probably won’t as I do have a lot, and I weed them here and there. I can’t currently think of something I’ll weed though.
An Unpublished Book on Your TBR That You’re Excited For
I’m really curious about The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma. It comes out in March of 2015.
A Book On Your TBR That Basically Everyone’s Read But You
Probably things like The Fifth Wave and Eleanor and Park. I own both of these and I do want to read them. I just haven’t found the time yet!
A Book On Your TBR That Everyone Recommends To You
I can’t really think of anything! I don’t personally get recommended a lot of novels.
A Book On Your TBR That You’re Dying To Read
Again, out of the books I own, I really want to read Eleanor and Park and the first Sandman graphic novel ASAP.
How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
I have 16 on my TBR shelf on Goodreads; I don’t use it a ton!
I’ve also been tagged to do the Seven Deadly Sins Questionnaire Tag (created by BookishlyMalyza) by Aylee from Recovering Potter Addict.
GREED What is your most inexpensive book? What is your least expensive book?
Oh, I don’t think I have a most expensive book to be honest. I mean, I don’t have a special edition of anything. My least expensive books are things I bought from book sales and the like, so a dollar or less each.
WRATH—What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Can I say Stephen Chbosky? I love The Perks of Being a Wallflower but it’s the only novel he’s written! I love him, but come on! I need more!
GLUTTONY—What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever?
Definitely The Perks of Being a Wallflower (I used to read it once a year) and the Harry Potter series! You had to re-read those things when waiting for a new addition.
SLOTH—What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
I really like Shakespeare, but I love reading them in a class setting. Therefore, Antony and Cleopatra by William Shakespeare would go under this setting. I really want to read it but sometimes I’m lazy with these type of books because I know it will be a slower read.
PRIDE—What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?
I don’t really discuss novels all that much outside of school. I guess I would say any Shakespeare play, because I do like Shakespeare and some people think that makes you sound smart.
LUST—What attributes do you find most attractive in male or female characters?
I really like sweet guys who are a bit dorky or into music. So many people love the bad boy, but I don’t find that as attractive. As for girls, it depends on the novel. Sometimes I like the dorky girl, sometimes it’s the sarcastic/funny one, and other times it’s the tough one who knows what she wants.
ENVY—What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
I would really like all the Harry Potter books with the new U.S. covers. I just really love how the books match up in the back. A whole set is about $70, which isn’t too bad considering it’s basically $10 a book, but it’s still pricey for me. If anyone wants to gift me it though, I’d totally accept!!
Tag, you’re it!
I never know who to tag when these things come up because I know some blogs don’t do them. Therefore, please do this if you’re interested and let me know in the comments so I can come read your answers!
