Bookish: TBR Book Tag

I was tagged by the lovely Sara @ The Bibliophagist to do this tag. I always love the tags that Sara does and have stolen a fair few without being tagged so when I am legitimately tagged I love it even more. πŸ˜‰

How many times can one person say a variant of ‘tag’ in an intro you ask? Five. I counted. It’s five.

Check out Sara’s TBR and especially her incredibly organised approach here.


I am not as organised as Sara, that’s for sure!

Three main places:- a double spread in my bullet journal, my Amazon ‘wish list’ and my Goodreads page. As I think I’ve double or triple upped on book titles my aim is to plonk them all on Goodreads and streamline it that way.


Once upon a time I insisted that I was never going to get a Kindle. My phone is from the 90’s and I can’t properly work the smart TV. It’s a miracle, a friggin’ miracle that you’re even getting this blog in all honesty.

That being said, I now have a Kindle. I like to travel places and so I finally succumbed and am deeply appreciative of my little device. My TBR is still mostly print but e-book’s are beginning to creep their way up there.


I let my cat choose.

No seriously.

Now that I’ve been accepted for some ARCs I need to make sure that I’ve read and reviewed before the release date but when I buy/ choose my monthly TBR that’s down to whatever I feel like at the time of selection. But yes, I have taken a pile of books that are on my next monthly TBR and spread them on the floor in front of my cat and the first one she sniffs is the one I go for.

I hate making decisions that much.


the graveyard

And it’s on my TBR for September! C’mon Gerry!!



I added this one on this morning.

Can you tell who I’m a fan of?!


the essex serpent

Historical fiction isn’t usually a genre I go for but I’m getting more and more into it. I just love the cover of this with all its colours but I’ve also heard some positive things about the actual story!


Like Sara said on her post, if it’s on my TBR than I do plan on reading it. Saying that I did go through my TBR and most I recognised or remembered adding apart from this one… I must have added it…. it doesn’t look like the kind of thing my cat would read…

It’s not so much unpublished as unwritten…

winds of winter

Just ignore that noise. It’s the rain and not the sound of my tears hitting the floor.

I came to Leigh Bardugo late but aim to rectify this after having read The Language of Thorns. While never having read this book it does seem that loads of people have and so I already feel half familiar with the characters and can even tell you who they are.

I even know some spoilers because, well… internet.



Not so much recommended to me directly but I’ve seen positive things about this on the blogs I follow so I’ll take it as a recommendation!


the surface breaks






How the heck did that go up so much?!

Oh right… I’m involved in book blogging now!


I’m tagging the below but if you don’t want to do it then please don’t worry! Also, if you do want to do this and I haven’t tagged you then please go for it! I’d love to see everyone’s answers!

  1. Weee thanks for the tag, this is really cool and I can’t wait to do it! πŸ˜€ You need to read The Graveyard Book, Six of Crows and The 7 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle! The Essex Serpent is high on my tbr, I’ve heard nothing but good stuff from people I trust. πŸ™‚ I also want to read The Surface Breaks, and don’t cry for Winds of Winter, Martin is feeding on our tears, so the more we cry the longer he lives and has a surplus of time to do anything but writing it. πŸ˜€

    1. The Graveyard Book is definitely on my October TBR as I didn’t get round to it in September. But I feel it would suit October more! George RR Martin is never going to finish writing it is he… I think he’s kind of done which is a shame! But then I guess pressure and all that!

  2. I really kind of want to try out this “bullet journal” thing that seems to all the rage lately! I’m so so terrible at doing any kind of planning (of my real life, anyway. I think I’m much better at planning out the lives of fictional characters…) and I’ve only started using spreadsheets to keep track of my ARCs just last week.

    And The Graveyard Book is my absolute favourite Gaiman book!! I hope you love it ❀

    1. This is only my second year of bullet journaling and I love it! Mine is incredibly *not* artistic and I’ve seen some really pretty and artistic ones but I use mine for pure practically because I was lugging around a Filofax (can you believe it?!) and a notepad to record things in and the journal sort of does both. It’s helps me organise my shizzle. I’ve started requested ARCS but not enough to get a spreadsheet sorted! I’m hoping to go on a binge request at some point but so far I’ve been approved for most of the ones I’ve requested which has surprised me!

      I’m really looking forward to The Graveyard Book, I’m eyeing it up with glee!

      1. I uh, may have had to google “Filofax” haha. Definitely not saying you’re outdated!! I’m just terrible with official names for everyday objects. And I’ve seen some of those artistic ones too! I’ve been getting back into watercolour lately and I kind of want to try it with journals.

        And I think of binge ARC requests as an initiation thing for all bloggers. Everyone should try it at some point and experience the “oh my god, what have I done” feeling. πŸ˜€

        1. I am a throwback from the 80’s!! I sadly don’t have the Filofax anymore (well I do but it’s in storage for sentiment reasons)!

          I love looking at pictures of other people’s bullet journals, it’s a weird habit to have but I’m secretly obsessed with seeing how people organise their lives but I like all the artwork too on the really pretty ones.

          Oh I binged and got accepted for ones I didn’t think I would get accepted for and so I learnt to read fast and stick to a schedule! I’m mildly addicted now…


  3. Thanks for tagging me! It’s been a while since I’ve done any! I’m scheduling this one for next Saturday.

    Also, get on Six of Crows!!! It’s time! It’s probably one that I’ll be rereading every fall, so it’s a great time of year! I’ll be checking out The Surface Breaks. The cover is gorgeous and my current WIP has mermaids…sort of…

    1. Looking forward to reading it!

      I know, it’s now on my TBR (clearly!) but is a relatively recent addition! I need to get through so many other books first. Ah I adore mermaids in a huge way! Even if they’re ‘sort of’ mermaids! Funnily enough my WIP also has sort of mermaids!


  4. Great answers!! I have also let my cat choose my next book once or twice. I surround her with books and whichever one she walks up to is the next book. She actually hasn’t made a bad decision yet, so maybe I should let her make all the decisions in my life. πŸ™‚
