Happy Sunday everyone.
This is another post for the Summer Blogger Promo Tour.
1. What is the Summer Blogger Promo Tour?
The Summer Blogger Promo Tour is a summer tour that we’ve put together at The Book Bratz that helps a bunch of bloggers both new and old link up with each other and collab on fun posts throughout the summer!
And for this one myself and Lili @ Utopia State of Mind
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Lili: I put all the books I want to read on my To Read shelf on Goodreads. I know there are books I haven’t looked at from when I first started my Goodreads accounts ages ago, so I only look at the recently added ones.
Me: I usually start with Goodreads and for some of my bought books I looks at my shelf and then my Goodreads to see which books I really want to read.
- Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?
Lili: Print. I don’t normally prefer to read on e-book unless the price is unbeatable OR it’s an e-arc. Those are really the two reasons I’d do this.
Me: It is Print books mostly, sometimes it is an e-book
- A Book That’s Been On Your TBR List The Longest
Lili: This older series by Mercedes Lackey – the thousand kingdoms I think? I loved so many of Lackey’s books as a child growing up that they have this special nostalgic place in my heart.
Me: Anything by Patrick Rothfuss and Mark Lawrence. I haven’t read anything by these two authors but I keep hearing great things about them.
- A Book You Recently Added To Your TBR
Lili: I think I added WE HUNT THE FLAME recently, but there have been so many fantastic 2019/2020 books announced that I have gone on a TBR rampage. Save me.
Me: Crazy Rich Asians. I know that is mostly because the movie is coming out but I do sort of also want to read the book.
- A Book In Your TBR Strictly Because of Its Beautiful Cover
Lili: I haven’t done this recently only because I have to really go the extra effort to add the book to my TBR. So it’s normally just arcs I want to keep a track of or maybe request.
Me: A more recent example is Four Dead Queens. I remember seeing the cover at BookCon.
- A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading
Lili: Psh, I would love to read all the books on my TBR! That’s what it’s there for!
Me: If it’s on my TBR, then I will read it. Hopefully eventually
- An Unpublished Book on Your TBR That You’re Excited For
Lili: Well I just finished SADIE and that was fabulous, but of course I’m excited for SHADOWGLASS and SPY WITH THE RED BALLOON!
Me: What If It’s Us by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertali because I want to see what both of those authors come up with. Also Muse of Nightmares because I just finished Strange the Dreamer and loved it.
- A Book On Your TBR That Basically Everyone’s Read But You
Lili: Gah, a lot. I haven’t read Jenny Han or Victoria Schwab yet. So these are ones I get a lot of grief about! Or the Illuminae series – that one too. To be fair, I do now own these, so I have more of a reason to read them now!
Me: Jenny Han as well. I know Too All the Boys I Loved is coming on Netflix and it reminded me that I never even touched those books.
- A Book On Your TBR That Everyone Recommends To You
Lili: DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC keeps getting recommended to me, by one person…but I will read it!
Me: Anything by Renee Adhieh. I even met her at BookCon and I felt so bad for not reading her books. I keep getting recommended her books, but I will read them eventually.
- A Book On Your TBR That You’re Dying To Read
Lili: Gosh all of them? I am most excited for KINGDOM OF THE BLAZING PHOENIX though. I Have that but I haven’t dug in yet…
Me: City of Saints and Thieves, I am still surprised that I haven’t read it yet
- How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
Lili: I will not be answering this question. It’s too cruel.
Me: Yeah, about that. It will ever be growing that I have completely lost count.
