seems, i can’t stop doing these tag posts 😀
as long as i haven’t finished a book of my current reads, i will be posting tag posts, so get used to that hahaha 😀
1.) how do you keep track of your TBR pile?
i use goodreads to scan all my books and have them marked as tbr books. but sometimes i forget it, so it is possible, that i do not have listed all books there. i also used my bookjournal for that but after some book buying outta control i kind of stopped it *facepalm*.
the best way for me are my bookshelves. i have “read”-bookshelves and “unread-bookshelves”. that way i know my tbr books and they stare at me.
2.) is your TBR mostly print or ebook
mostly print. i do not have that many ebooks on my kindle. i get those when i am in the mood for an ebook.
3.) how do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
i am a total mood reader. i have a huge bookshelf in the living room, where all my tbr books are. i also have a little bookshelf in my bedroom, where all the books are, that i am interested in right this moment. i pick books from there. if my mood changes or i am interested in other books, i switch them out.
4.) a book that’s been on your TBR list the longest
probably all of my crime, thriller and horror books. i went through a huge phase many years ago and i own books by stephen king, henning mankell or karin slaugther. they all need to be read. someday. somehow. i know i will do it. 😀
5.) a book you recently added to your TBR
i bought two of the vintage classic russians series. i loooooove these editions and i own four of them now. i want to start a project, reading “war & peace” by leo tolstoy in one year. so it will be a chapter a day. after that i want to tackle “anna karenina”, “the master & margarita” and “crime and punishment”. let’s do this! 😀
6.) a book in your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover
actually, i do not buy a book because of its cover. or not just because of its cover. of course my eyes go to the nice cover and then i am hooked. but i always read what the book is about. and i only buy it, if i am intrigued by the story.
7.) a book on your TBR that you never plan on reading
i plan to read all my books. if i will every get to it, is another question 😀
8.) a book on your TBR that basically everyone’s read but you
definitely “harry potter”. 😀 i feel like the whole world has read these books. i still have to. and i will. at some point. i am scared, that i won’t like them but i know that it is time to finally do this! *facepalm*
9.) a book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you
“harry potter”? 😀 but i also get “a court of thornes and roses” by sarah j. maas a lot 😉
10.) a book on your TBR that you’re dying to read
“crooked kingdom” by leigh bardugo. i neeeeeeeed to know what will happen to my man kaz brekker. ❤ love this guy. need more of him in my life 😀
11.) how many books are on your TBR shelf?
goodreads tells me, that there are 188 books, but i know that there are more. probably around 200.
