Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

Yes. I need to finish The Cottingley Secret. I picked this book up and started reading it, but I lost interest. It didn’t have anything to do with the book, I think I just picked it up at the wrong time. I still plan on having it read by the end of the year.

Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

Well, these aren’t really autumnal, but I am reading the Harry Potter series which will take me to the end of the year or longer to read. I’m listening on Audible, but I may transition into some of the physical books. I really want to read the new illustrated editions too.

 Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

I was waiting for The Wife Between Us, but then I got approved for it on NetGalley.

What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

Hmm, only three? Okay, Little Fires Everywhere, The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding, and The Glass Castle.

 

Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite book of the year?

I’ll say White Fur. I have to start this soon and have a good feeling about it after seeing a few friends reviews.

Have you already started making reading plans for 2018?

Oh yeah, big plans for 2018. First, I plan to have better control of my TBR which has now just surpassed 10,000. There’s no way I can read all of those. I try to add books I genuinely want to read, but that’s just way too many. I also plan to have better control of my reading schedule. I tried working with lists, but find that I’m much happier just picking up a book when I want to and reading it when I feel like it. I also plan to control my ARC requesting. I requested too many this year and I’ll be lucky to have them all read and reviewed by the end of the year.

TAG: The TBR Tag

I’ve been seeing this tag a lot lately, but recently read about it at Nel’s wonderful blog@ ReactionaryTales.com. Please visit Nel’s blog if you haven’t already. She’s a great friend to have with a blog full of interesting content!

Questions:

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I don’t. I consistently add to my TBR and don’t worry about it.

Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?

It’s mixed, but mostly print. I don’t really pay attention to editions and formats. If I see a book I want to read, I just click it.

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

I don’t. I have so many books lined up that I rarely visit my TBR. I just read what I know is next in line with some occasional change ups.

A book that’s been on your TBR the longest.

I believe it’s Jamie McGuire’s Red Hill #1. I joined GR in 2008, but didn’t add books to my TBR until roughly 2013.


A book that you recently added to your TBR.

The Collector by John Fowles. It sounds pretty dark and it’s been awhile since I’ve read something like this.


A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover.

The entire Splintered Series by A.G. Howard.

I do plan to read them. 🙂


A book on your TBR that you NEVER plan on actually reading.

Brand VS Wild by Johnathan Lewis

I’m not a business woman or involved in business in general. I’m not sure why I added this one, but it’s not one that I would rush to read and probably won’t read at all. No offense to the author! I’m sure it’s a great book.


An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.

Ugly Beautiful Girl by Tracy Krimmer

I just found this at Donna’s blog @ Bookdragongirl.com! Excited. 🙂


A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you.

The Hobbit, but I’m reading it with my 9-year-old right now. Does that count? 😉
