To Be Read (TBR). This is what avid readers refer to the list, pile, stack or shelf of books we have marked either digitally or in print that we want to read. It is that list of books in which we never see the end. And we are mostly okay with that. Right?
How do you decide what book to read next from your TBR pile? Do you go in date order? For the reviewers out there, do you pick the next book based on what you have scheduled to review or blog about? I am a book blogger and I try to stick with books by order of how they are submitted to me, but sometimes that just doesn’t happen.
I have to have a feel for the type of book I am reading or I am not giving it my all. Sometimes I want sweet. Sometimes I want edgy and action packed. Sometimes I want flat out naughty. For example, I just finished a super hot contemporary erotic romance. It was a book hangover type book. I knew I had to switch to either historical, paranormal or suspense so I wouldn’t compare it to the next one I read. Because of this, I sometimes take a little longer to review books, but it is only because I want to give each book an open mind when I read it.
I am curious about the rest of you. Does anyone else have this problem? How do you pick your next book to read off of your TBR list?
