This tag was originally created by Rachel @ A Perfection Called Books
The Rules: 
1. Answer these questions truthfully.
2. Once you’ve completed this tag, tag some other book bloggers to answer these questions next.
1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
I use Goodreads. (Add me!)
2. Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?
 Currently, it’s mostly TBR because I have several eARCs I have to get to.

3. A Book That’s Been On Your TBR List The Longest
Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger! When I first started my Goodreads account, I added a bunch of classics because I had read a couple of classics from school.
4. A Book You Recently Added To Your TBR
The Queen of Zombie Hearts by Gena Showalter

5. A Book In Your TBR Strictly Because of Its Beautiful Cover
I’d have to say Unicorn Tracks by Julia Ember. Look at those magnificent colors!
6. A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading
I hate to say this, but I suppose it would be any Colleen Hoover book. It’s a shame because I’ve heard that Colleen is an amazing author, but I was never a huge contemporary fan, so I don’t know if I’ll ever get to her books due to the amount of other genres of books I want to read.

7. An Unpublished Book on Your TBR That You’re Excited For
 Truthwitch by Susan Dennard! There is SO much hype to this, and although I’m not exactly part of it, I’m very excited for this title!

8. A Book On Your TBR That Basically Everyone’s Read But You
I hate to say this, but Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. There’s definitely more, but I don’t want to shame myself into bookish exile.
9. A Book On Your TBR That Everyone Recommends To You
 Throne of Glass is definitely one, but also The Darkest Minds series, as well as the Raven Cycle!

10. A Book On Your TBR That You’re Dying To Read
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, and the rest of the series as well! I’m planning on purchasing it soon!
11. How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
Currently,  a shocking 1519.
I tag:
and you!
I apologize if you’ve done this tag before, but if you haven’t, please enjoy!

 

– Book Tag: Unpopular Opinion

I’m just going to start off saying that I actually wasn’t tagged for this. But it looked fun, and I’m, like, a week late, so who cares? Let’s get started!

If I Stay and My Life Next Door just didn’t really do it for me. Although, I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone in like, eighth grade when I really wasn’t into YA at all, so maybe one day I’ll try to read (and perhaps enjoy) it again.

I never actually finished the Twilight series, so I can’t form a complete opinion on it (except that Edward’s creepy and Bella gets pregnant), but I really, really enjoyed The Host. I hope that Stephanie’s working on the next one!

I absolutely adored this series. Unfortunately, Stalker and Deuce did not happen (or it did for a mere two scenes), which made me incredibly sad.

Also, Lara Jean and John Ambrose McClaren would have been SO good together. Shame.

ParanormalI’m just not really into the whole vampire/werewolf/fairy thing. One exception is the Wolves of Mercy Falls series

I honestly didn’t like Tris that much. Or Four either.

I’ve only read If I Stay and I just thought it a little bland. It almost made me cry though, so I suppose that’s an okay sign.

Love at first sight. Honestly, The Statistical Probability was incredibly well-written, which is why I really liked it, but I don’t believe in love at first sight. But I don’t know.

I read the first one, but I just couldn’t get into the rest. I do like the covers though, so maybe I’ll try again one day.

I honestly did really like the books, but the series has so many new and unique characters that I’m totally in love with.
