Hey bookish friends! I found this tag on StephenWrites and thought it looked like a fun one to do. Not sure who the original creator is, but if anyone knows please let me know so I can give credit where the credit is due 🙂
You have 20,000 books on your TBR, how do you decide what to read next?
I am such a mood reader and I just kind of decide in the moment what I’m feeling. If I’m not in the mood for a book I feel like it can really inhibit what I end up thinking about it. There are several books that I have read when not in the mood that I think if I had read under different circumstances I would have enjoyed a lot more. However; lately, I’ve been trying to stay on top of my ARC’s, so if I have a release deadline coming up, I usually will read that book next- unless it really goes against the mood I’m in because I do want to give them all a fair chance.
You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you put it down or are you committed?
I RARELY DNF. I feel like I have already invested the time to get that far and it would be a waste to not see it all the way through.
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?
I will always try. I’m falling really behind on my challenge this year (staying on top of my reading while on tour is a lot harder than I had anticipated), but that doesn’t stop me from trying to catch up. I will try to read some shorter, easy read books, or maybe a play here and there to try to make up some ground.
The covers of a series you love do not match, how do you cope?
It honestly doesn’t bother me too much. I think one day when I am able to have a library in my dream house I will try to get full matching series, but right now it isn’t a big deal.
Everyone and their mother loves a book that you do not. Who do you bond with over your shared feelings?
If I can find another blogger who feels the same way, amazing. But usually, I just vent to my roommate or boyfriend.
You’re reading a book in public and you’re about to start crying. How do you deal?
Oh, I’ve definitely cried in public while reading a book (several times on the subway). I’ll try to hold it in, but honestly, I have no shame.
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?
No, but I might look up a summary of what happened in the first one as a refresher.
You do not want anyone to borrow your books, how do you politely say no when someone asks?
Ugh I hate lending people books. I have a very select few who I trust to actually give me my books back. (Looking at you Joey, Allison, Kristen, and Kaley)
You have picked up and put down 5 books in the last month. How do you get over this reading slump?
I will take a break from reading all together *GASP* for a day or two. Or reread Harry Potter. That usually works.
There are so many books coming out that you are dying to read. How many do you end up buying?
This is one of the hardest parts of being on tour for me. There have been so many new releases that I have been wanting to buy, but with such limited space in my luggage, I’ve really had to limit myself. I’ve been reading a lot more on my kindle, and have made a rule for myself to read more of the books that I have with me before buying new ones. It’s really hard though, especially when I get to see all these amazing book stores across the country and want to buy a book in every one…
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?
It depends… Probably a while. It is extremely rare for me to buy a book when I’m not already in the middle of something, so I usually wait until I finish my current read, but I also usually buy more than one book at a time so it could be a while. The goal would be to finish everything I have to read so I ACTUALLY need to buy a new book, but I don’t think that is very attainable…
