Let’s Talk Bookish: The Care and Keeping of a TBR

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, created and hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books and Dani @ Literary Lion, where we discuss certain topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts. You can check out more about this meme here!

Do you maintain a TBR physically, online or both?

I used to keep a pocket-sized notebook with a running TBR in it, but then I lost the notebook. So…I mostly use Goodreads to maintain my TBR.

How do you decide which books get to go on your TBR?

It really depends. Most books I read have either been recommended by someone or feature themes or topics I’m interested in. I’ve also won a few ARCs from BookishFirst and NetGalley.

Do you ever “prune” your TBR to remove old books?

No not really. That list just gets longer and longer and I don’t think it will ever end. I do occasionally start a book that’s been on my TBR only to find that I cannot finish it for whatever reason.

How big is your TBR currently?

I’ll just show you a picture:

I’m actually reading We All Die in the End and Home Before Dark right now, so watch out for those reviews soon!

Do you have any tips on better ways to keep up with an ever-growing TBR? Because I could honestly use some help here.

  1. Hello there and thank you for reading my book. Re TBR lists, I write it longhand in a notebook, and most of the books on the list have been reviewed here on WordPress. I make notes beside the titles to remind me why I want to read any particular book. I’m often tempted to scrap it altogether but then I would miss so many great reads!

    1. I loved Mexican Gothic, but I had to DNF Calamity Jane, which surprised me. I don’t know why, but a lot of the jokes felt forced to me, and by the time I got to page 386, I just couldn’t do it anymore. 😂 That said, humor is subjective, so you may absolutely love it!
