TBR | Managing your TBR list

All book lovers know that the struggle of the TBR list can be very difficult. It seems to be a never-ending list that grows faster than you can knock things off of it. I have seen a few difference creative ways that people use to help them decide which books they read next but I am curious to see how my readers decide.

Here are some questions I have for you:

Do you only put books on your TBR list that you own? Or do you have a different way to categorize the books that you own vs. the books that you are interested in reading

How do you choose which book you read next?

How long is your TBR list?

How/what tools do you use to keep track of your TBR list?

What do you do with the books that have been on your TBR list for a long time? Do you treat them differently if they have been on there for a month vs. a year?

Have you ever knocked books off of your list without reading them? Why? – BE HONEST!

I am guilty of having two different TBR lists – the one on goodreads that often contains books I will never get around to reading and my book shelves which contain books that I have fully intended on reading at one point and still haven’t.

Are you successfully managing your TBR? How do you do it?

Taste of Tuesday | Every Last Breath by Jennifer Armentrout (The Dark Elements #3)

ELB

Some loves will last ’til your dying breath

Every choice has consequences—but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.

Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin—the deadliest of demons—has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.

Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell…


I’ve gotta say that I’m kinda sad to see this series end, and I almost wish it’d gone on for one more book. Sadly, that’s clearly not going to happen. Every Last Breath picks up right where Stone Cold Touch left off. A Lilin has been released from its hellish prison and is set on destroying everything, and everyone in its path. Along with having to battle a deadly monster, Layla also has to make her final choice – Zayne or Roth.

I’m intrigued to see what the final fan vote was in regards to who Layla chooses – About 8 months ago, Jennifer Armentrout put it out to the readers to choose who they wanted the heroine of the novel to end up with.

Added to my TBR list | Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

**This is not a review**

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

Greg Gaines is the last master of high school espionage, able to disappear at will into any social environment. He has only one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time making movies, their own incomprehensible versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics.

Until Greg’s mother forces him to rekindle his childhood friendship with Rachel.

Rachel has been diagnosed with leukemia—-cue extreme adolescent awkwardness—-but a parental mandate has been issued and must be obeyed. When Rachel stops treatment, Greg and Earl decide the thing to do is to make a film for her, which turns into the Worst Film Ever Made and becomes a turning point in each of their lives.

And all at once Greg must abandon invisibility and stand in the spotlight.

Now, this book has been out for 3 years and until about a year ago and I hadn’t even heard of it. It is like it lived in the shadows of TFIOS and is finally just able to crawl out from that shadow and have a life of its own.

This book, in three different covers, is all over my local bookstore. People are talking about it everywhere online and I felt like I had missed something, where did this book come from and why is it so popular now?

As I spend my morning looking up this book, reading the reviews, checking out the movie cast, I find myself wondering if it was me that has lived under a rock. This book sounds amazing and is now grabbing attention of readers. The sicklit trend is exploding and readers are grasping for every piece of sicklit that they can get their hands on. This book has officially been added to my TBD list.
