TBR Tag


So a few days ago I was tagged for this tag by Ri at Hiver et Café! You can check out her post here. This tag was originally created by Rachel at A Perfection Called Books and Dana at DanaSquare. You can check out Rachel's post here and Dana's post here. It's about learning about our TBRs and other peoples TBRs. It's super fun and hopefully I'll learn something about my TBR that I didn't know before ;)

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
I use goodreads because it makes finding new books and adding them to a list of books you want to read super easy!

Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
My TBR is definitely mostly print because I LOVE print copies because it just feels so right to read using them.

How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I just choose what book I have available at the moment or read an ARC next or read a book that I'm excited about reading.

A book that's been on your TBR the longest
Panic - This book has been on my account since November 4th, 2013, basically like the day I joined Goodreads!


A book you recently added to your TBR
Renegade - The reviews for the book are mostly positive and the synopsis seems super interesting, so I plan on reading it soon!


A book in your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover
Open Summer Road - This book's cover is GORGEOUS! And it seems like a fun read :)


A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading
Strings Attached - It's a historical romance book. I don't read historical romances much.


An unpublished book on your TBR that you are excited for
Wicked - I seriously can't wait for this book to come out! I mean, IT'S A PARANORMAL BOOK BY JLA!! I can't resist it!


A book on your TBR that basically everyone's read but you
Clockwork Angel - I feel like every single person but me has read this! I read the Mortal Instruments, but I have yet to read this. I'm holding off on reading this because I've been spoiled :(


A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you
Fangirl - The first book that I can think of is Fangirl. I think I'm like the only person that has never read this -.-


A book that you are dying to read
Opposition - I have this book and I want to read it SO BADLY! But I banned myself from reading it until I finish reading my ARCs as motivation.


How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
O.O Umm...1,432 books...

I tag:
The Misses @ Fangirling Misses
Tia @ Read It Write Now!
Carina @ My Addiction: Books
Ivey @ The Hopeless Reader
Alise and Bec @ Readers In Wonderland
& anyone else who would like to do the tag!

Waiting on Wednesday (3): Lailah


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a meme created by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's book is Lailah by Nikki Kelly and it's getting released on October 7th, 2014.

I've heard a TON of great things about this book and the synopsis seems INCREDIBLE and it's just basically one of the books that I'm really excited for! :D

The girl knows she’s different. She doesn't age. She has no family. She has visions of a past life, but no clear clues as to what she is, or where she comes from. But there is a face in her dreams – a light that breaks through the darkness. She knows his name is Gabriel.

On her way home from work, the girl encounters an injured stranger whose name is Jonah. Soon, she will understand that Jonah belongs to a generation of Vampires that serve even darker forces. Jonah and the few like him, are fighting with help from an unlikely ally – a rogue Angel, named Gabriel.

In the crossfire between good and evil, love and hate, and life and death, the girl learns her name: Lailah. But when the lines between black and white begin to blur, where in the spectrum will she find her place? And with whom?

Gabriel and Jonah both want to protect her. But Lailah will have to fight her own battle to find out who she truly is.

Waiting on Wednesday (2): Exquisite Captive


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a meme created by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's book is Exquisite Captive by Heather Demetrios. It is going to be released on October 7th, 2014.

I am super excited for this book because the synopsis seems awesome and the book is inspired by Arabian Nights, and that's amazing!

Forced to obey her master.
Compelled to help her enemy.

Determined to free herself. 

Nalia is a jinni of tremendous ancient power, the only survivor of a coup that killed nearly everyone she loved. Stuffed into a bottle and sold by a slave trader, she’s now in hiding on the dark caravan, the lucrative jinni slave trade between Arjinna and Earth, where jinn are forced to grant wishes and obey their human masters’ every command. She’d give almost anything to be free of the golden shackles that bind her to Malek, her handsome, cruel master, and his lavish Hollywood lifestyle.

Enter Raif, the enigmatic leader of Arjinna’s revolution and Nalia’s sworn enemy. He promises to free Nalia from her master so that she can return to her ravaged homeland and free her imprisoned brother—all for an unbearably high price. Nalia’s not sure she can trust him, but Raif’s her only hope of escape. With her enemies on the hunt, Earth has become more perilous than ever for Nalia. There’s just one catch: for Raif’s unbinding magic to work, Nalia must gain possession of her bottle…and convince the dangerously persuasive Malek that she truly loves him. Battling a dark past and harboring a terrible secret, Nalia soon realizes her freedom may come at a price too terrible to pay: but how far is she willing to go for it?

Inspired by Arabian Nights, EXQUISITE CAPTIVE brings to life a deliciously seductive world where a wish can be a curse and shadows are sometimes safer than the light.
