Book Tags, TBRs

Organizing my TBR XII

I was inspired by Charlotte’s posts to try this. If you don’t follow Charlotte, I highly recommend you do! She shares a lot of queer lit and is half of the team over at Reads Rainbow (which you should ALSO follow).

I’ve tried several TBR memes before, but I like the idea of ranking books with a numerical system! This first post is just going to be playing around a bit. Charlotte rates books based on how motivated she is to read it (1-5) multiplied by how interested she is in the premise (1-5).

I plan to start by using a similar system: priority (1-5) + interest in blurb (1-5) + average friend rating on GR (1-5) / 3. I’ll check out the final result and make my decision from there. I’m not going to make any hard rules, but my guess is a score of 3+ is good enough to stay. Very high ratings will get put on my tbr asap shelf. If none of my friends have rated the book, then I’ll use the Goodreads rating instead.

  1. you have 1420 books on your TBR ? or have I read it wrong ? I have over 300 books and I’ve been unhauling books for the past two years (around 60-80 books every four to six months I think). I will think about that method but it does take time.. though it’s interesting !

    1. Unfortunately you are reading it correctly! I’m out of control with my goodreads TBR shelf. I do end up removing a decent amount as I browse it for something to read, but yes this will certainly take a while!
