I hope you guys are having a great day so far. Today’s post is a little different but also something I want to start doing more on the blog! The “Tag” is called Reader Problems and I was inspired by Bookinspector to answer the questions on my blog! Anyways I thought it would be a fun post to share with you all and I hope you guys enjoy learning more about my reading style…
Ok let’s get into the questions!!
You have 20,000 books on your TBR, how do you decide what to read next?
Oh gosh that’s a lot of books🙊 Honestly I tend to read according of the “Season” I’m in. This doesn’t necessarily just mean the weather aspect of the word- it can also depend on my mood or an event that is coming up for me! For example, since if I had to choose a book at this specific time… I would probably pick a mystery or something with a cozy plot because it’s almost fall!
You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you put it down or are you committed?
If I’m being honest- I’ll probably put it down! This doesn’t mean I won’t try again some other time but I try to make reading as relaxing and stress free as possible… because it’s something I really enjoy! I don’t want to put pressure on myself to finish a book that really isn’t grasping my attention- and potentially hold me back from a book that will.
The end of the year is coming and you’re behind on your reading challenge. Do you try to catch up? And if so, how?
This is a tough question to answer because I do like to keep up with any sort of challenge that I commit to… but when it comes to books I really like to pace myself. I would rather settle for reading fewer books and read them thoroughly. This way I’m able to enjoy them rather than hastily get through them just to add them to a list to make my goal.
The covers of a series you love do not match, how do you cope?
Hmm… this honestly doesn’t bother me that much! I’m more concerned with how the content inside speaks to me.
Everyone and their mother loves a book that you do not. Who do you bond with over your shared feelings?
I’ve recently found the bookish community on twitter to be SUPER welcoming and I feel comfortable sharing my opinions with people I’ve met through there and through blogging of course!
You’re reading a book in public and you’re about to start crying. How do you deal?
I am a very emotional person(#HSP life) so this is kind of a tough question for me… I think if a book moves me to tears I would attempt to find a more secluded place to control myself😂
The sequel to a book you loved just came out but you’ve forgotten a lot of what happens. Are you going to reread it?
I would definitely re-read it! I think the sequel would be more enjoyable if I am refreshed with the characters and plot instead of attempting to recall everything from memory.
You do not want anyone to borrow your books, how do you politely say no when someone asks?
I’d just be honest with them!
You have picked up and put down 5 books in the last month. How do you get over this reading slump?
Reading slumps are the worst… but the best way for me to get out of them is to read a favorite book of mine that I haven’t read in a while. This really gets me excited about reading again and usually does the trick!
There are so many books coming out that you are dying to read. How many do you end up buying?
I usually only buy books after I finish quite a few on my TBR or if I’m currently reading a series and don’t have the next one! But if there’s a good deal(which there usually is) and I’m in the mood to read a ton… I’ll probably by 2-3 at a time!
After you purchase all of these books that you’re dying to read, how long do they sit on your shelf before you read them?
This depends on the season of my life that I’m in! When I was college books would stay unread on my shelves for weeks because of my class reading list(English majors can relate) but since I’ve graduated I tend to read them much more quickly!
Ok guys… that’s it for the questions!! I hope you guys enjoyed my post & thanks again to Bookinspector for the tag!! If you would like to answer the questions yourself- I just tagged you!🙈 make sure to link me on your post so I can see the answers to your questions☺️
