TBR Tag

Now and then, it’s nice to do a blog tag. It’s an effortless way to write an interesting post. I found this TBR Tag by A Geek Girl’s Guide and thought it would be an easy way to share what I’m currently reading. Without further ado, here are my answers:

What Are You Currently Reading? 

I’m currently reading The Force Awakens Novelization by Alan Dean Foster. It’s been a slower read because the adaption doesn’t provide any new information about the movie. It’s been predictable and it’s been tough to get myself to finish it, but I will eventually.

What Book Do You Plan on Reading Next?

I have The Alphabet Squadron Book #1 by Alexander Freed. This is another Star Wars book. It depends if I need a break from Star Wars novelizations, but if not, I will read this one next.

Top Three Books on Your TBR?

  1. It by Stephen King
  2. The Dark Tower by Stephen King (book #1)
  3. The Night Manager by John Le Carre.

These three books have been on my TBR for a long time. The fiance bought It when the first movie released, but he hasn’t read it yet. The Dark Tower was a book I bought when the movie adaptation released, but I haven’t been in the mood to read it. The Night Manager I purchased at an older book store in Boston. I watched the Amazon Prime limited series based on the book with Tom Hiddleston and it was so good, so I purchased the book.

I hope to get through all three of these books this year. Otherwise, I may donate The Dark Tower if I decide not to read it by the end of this year.

An Intimidating Book on Your TBR?

I would say It is intimidating because it’s over 1,000 pages! I’m saving the book for fall because I want a horror book to read. My favorite Stephen King book is Carrie, although I do recommend reading the Bill Hodges trilogy too. In high school, I read the Green Mile and that was pretty good, but not my favorite.

A Short Book on Your TBR?

All my books so far on my TBR aren’t short, so I don’t think I can answer this one. However, I do have a few graphic novels on my TBR, but I typically separate my book TBR from my graphic novel TBR. My books sit in the office while my graphic novels are piled on my nightstand in my bedroom.

If manga counts, I do have Ghost in the Shell volume #2 along with Berserk Vol. #1.

The Book That Has Been on Your TBR the Longest?

Game of Thrones has been on my TBR since 2013? I tried reading it during my freshman year of college, but I kept putting it down for long periods. I tried to pick the book up again, but I would forget what happened to all the characters. I’m thinking of reading Game of Thrones in January 2021. It’s fitting because of the Minnesota winter.

The Most Reason Addition to your TBR?

I haven’t purchased any books recently because I have been trying to decrease my TBR. I’m proud of myself because usually, I buy a bunch of books and my TBR is out of control. Thinking back, I think my most recent purchase was Alphabet Squadron as I received that book this year at C2E2 in Chicago right before the pandemic truly hit.

I linked to A Geek Girl’s Guide in my first paragraph, so feel free to check out the TBR tag there. Otherwise here are the questions for this tag:

  1. This is a cool tag. I feel you on the over 1,000 pages thing. I have some books on my TBR list that I haven’t gotten to because of how long they are.
