To-Be-Read (TBR) Tag

I have finally accepted this must have been the worst reading slump I have ever been in! It's horrible I a chugging my way through Hope and Red by Jon Skovron but it is taking me ages - for no reason at all! Because I am not reading I am also finding it harder to get inspiration to write some post, so I thought today I will talk about the ever growing TBR pile (yes I am still buying book's even thought I am not reading them, naughty I know but #bookwormproblems). I can't find the creator of the TBR Tag but I came across it over at Spines and Covers.

How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I think this was meant to be an easy first question but it really isn't for me. I have three different TRB lists and three different ways of keeping track of them:

(1) My TBR pile of books I already own - they have their own bookcase *yes it has got that big*
(2) My TBR of books I need to buy - I have a (couple of) epic-ly big of Amazon wish lists!
(3) My TBR of unreleased books - I keep these on Goodreads to-read list (but I really need to go through this as quite a few of them have been release since I put them on there).
Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?

TBR wise? It is mainly print books, as quite a lot of my ebook purchases are mood or impulse buys so they aren't generally on my TBR before I read them. Although of course I do have some ebooks on my TBR.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?

I am a total mood reader.
A book that’s been on your TBR list the longest?

I have no idea what book has been on my to-buy list (2) the longest but for my physical TBR list (1) I am going to with Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas. I bought this book which I saw it on sale years ago and I have seen some people raving about it's awesomeness since, so I have no idea why I haven't picked it up yet - one of the worlds many unexplained mysteries.
A book that you recently added to your TBR pile?

The most recent addition to my TBR bookcase (1) is The Star-Touched Queen *Yes I have finally got a copy*. One of my most recent addition to my to-buy list (2) is Bottled by Carol Riggs.
A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover.

I don't buy books strictly because of a beautiful cover, I am drawn to book because of beautiful covers but I will base my final decision on the synopsis or a recommendation from a trusted fellow reader.
A book on your TBR that you NEVER plan on actually reading.

Is it bad that I have a whole shelf of my TBR bookcase which is book which I think I will never get around to reading? Because that is a thing!! It incudes: The Maze Runner Trilogy; The Heartland Series (I read most of these as a child and thought it would be nice to re-read them, but it's just not happened!) and the Narnia Chronicles.
An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.

The Valiant by Lesley Livingston
A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you.

Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.

Everyone raves about the greatness of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I wasn't a great fan of her first series but, since so many people have recommended this book and given it great reviews, I am going to give it a go - at some point.
A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read.

So many, as I said before I am in a reading slump so I have soo many book I want to read such as: The Star-Touched Queen, Frost Like Night and Poisoned Blade.
The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

78 on my Goodreads List at the moment!

I would love to know your answers to a few of these questions
