TBR Alphabet Tag

While planning out posts for the next few months, I came across this tag from Haley @ The Caffeinated Reader. Not only did it look fun and relatively easy to write, it also gave me a nudge to declutter my TBR shelves ๐Ÿ˜…

(This post was written before I went on hiatus, so in the meantime I may have read or unhauled some of these books. But when this post was scheduled, all of these were owned-to-read titles, per the rules below!)



  • Name a book title from your TBR for every letter of the alphabet (can exclude words like โ€˜theโ€™ if need be); these must be books that you have copies of and not ones you intend on getting but havenโ€™t yet.
  • Try and include different authors for every single one.
  • At the bottom of your list put how many you could fill in (out of 26).
  • Tag other people to join in and link back to the person who tagged you!

  1. I finally bought The Lies of Locke Lamora because everyone screams about it so much (I mean, mostly Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm, but other people too)!!
    25 is pretty impressive!! I don’t think I could get past W… ๐Ÿค”

  2. You have so many good books on your TBR and I have quite a few of them on mine as well.
    I own King of Scars, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s nest and I hope I can read them soon!
