How to grow your TBR (The Right way)

THE BOOKWORM’S DICTIONARY:

TBR- T.o B.e R.ead; More commonly known as the To be read pile.

Hey guys,
So yesterday I went to my local library! *Flails around* I went in, was only intending to check out one or two books, and then…. I checked out 8 FREAKING books, It was an outrage. My Dad laughed, my brothers complained, and we drove to target. (And yes, I did also buy another book their as well).
Yeah, I already know I have a problem.
After re-stocking my bookshelf, I realized I hadn’t written my post for the day. So here I am, lecturing you about getting in debt through books, these are some of my MOST HELPFUL tips and tricks to get into debt through books, let’s begin.

1.Follow Other Blogs
Congrats! Your already growing your TBR by reading this, my book blog. *Throws a handful of confetti over your head*
If you’re looking for other HONEST bloggers, I’m your guy.

Blogger Recommendations:

Cait @ paperfury
Mikaela @ the well-thumbed reader
Wendy Darling (Goodreads reviewer)


2. Join Goodreads
Another simple, but successful thing I do to increase your TBR pile is to track your reading progress and follow authors on Goodreads.
By doing this you see all of the book Authors are currently reading, you also  get a taste for what the book community is like. (WIN WIN)

If you’re looking for authors to follow, Here’s a list of my favorites. (Note, most authors post infrequently because, well… their authors).

List of Authors:

Rick Riordan
Brandon Mull
Veronica Roth
Suzanne Collins
Cinda Williams Chima
Patrick Ness
Etc, etc, etc.


3. Use the Library to your Advantage

One of the things Library’s have that major bookstores don’t usually have, are people. TONS of people. People have thoughts, people have feelings, ASK SOMEONE for a recommendation. Ask the librarian, ask your mom, ask the random kid sitting it the corner, ASK EVERYONE FOR RECOMMENDATIONS. Plus, if you regularly attend, The Librarian will be more likely to help you, As well as put things on hold without you even having to ask him/her.

 

That’s it! Those are some of my tips and tricks for increasing your TBR. As Always, make sure to comment below to let me know if I’ve missed any of your favorite ways! Thank’s for reading! I’ll have another post up soon! BYE!!

My Current TBR Pile #1

Hey guys,

I’ve done it! I’ve posted something every day this WEEK. (Except for Sunday, but I posted 2 posts on Saturday so I’ll count it.)

Today I got this idea for this post from Ellie at

http://www.ontheothersideofreality.org

For those who don’t know, TBR stands for to be read pile. So I thought I’d let you guys in on what I have planned to read for now.

Heartless, by Marissa Meyer. FOR THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW I LOOOOVVVVEEE MARISSA MEYER. To me, she is arguably higher than Brandon Sanderson high (and that’s PRETTY HIGH!) For those who don’t know she is the author of the Lunar Chronicles, which I rated every book a 5/5 stars. So I KNOW IT WILL BE AMAZEBALLS. Right now I’m on page 100 out of something and I expect that I’ll finish it by the end of the week.(We’ll see how that goes though)
Goodreads-Heartless by: Marissa Meyer

I bought this lovely recently! It’s the second in a trilogy involving CRAZINESS. Honestly it’s best to go in blind to this dystopian series, It make the series a WHOLE LOT BETTER when you aren’t aware what’s going to happen to these amazing characters.
Goodreads- Prodigy by: Marie Lu
The Final book I’m planning to read soon is……

The Enchanter Heir by: Cinda Williams Chima! For those who don’t know, I LOVVEE Cinda’s work. Her fantasy books are the bomb dot com! She just has this way with coming up with the most ingenigous ways to incorporate magic into everyday life! I hope to read this after I finish Heartless so be on the look out for a review ASAP!

That’s it! These are the three books I’m going to be reading this week!

I even managed to only put in one gif! NEW RECORD!

Thank’s for reading this post! Let me know in the comments below what you’re planning to read this week! Until next time! Bye READER FAM!
