Today, you guys get a tag. I’m working on finishing Bloodwitch, but I’ve been really distracted with school so today’s a bit of a bust for a review or even a book chat among Jenn, Caitlynn, and I. However, I found this tag over on Reading at Teatime’s blog. It was significantly different from all of the other tags floating around so I thought I’d give it a go.
You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next?
I’m just one of those people that grabs what they feel like reading. I have TBRs but if I feel like reading something else I have no problem just picking it up.
You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you put it down or are you committed?
It kind of depends. If I feel like it’s going to put me in a slump I’ll DNF it but if it’s something that I can just power through I’ll finish it.
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?
Because I’m so prone to reading slumps, I really don’t push myself to read if I’m behind.
The covers of a series you love do not match. How do you cope?
I will legit just go re-buy an entire series just so they match.
Everyone and their mothers love a book that you do not. Who do you bond with over your shared feelings?
Jenn and Caitlynn because even if they liked the book they are always down to listen to me complain about it.
You’re reading a book in public and you’re about to start crying. How do you deal?
I stop reading. I refuse to cry in public. I’m definitely not going to let myself cry in public because of a book.
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?
Most likely. Unless I’m too excited to go back and reread it, I’ll usually reread a book if I need a refresher for the series.
You do not want anyone borrow your books. How do you politely say no when someone asks?
I’m actually pretty blunt about it. People are more understanding about it than I think people expect. Typically when people ask to borrow a book I’ll just straight up tell them, “actually I don’t let people borrow my books.” It’s the easiest way to handle the situation and I’ve never had someone complain about it.
You have picked up and put down 5 books in the last month. How do you get over this reading slump?
It kind of depends. Am I just not loving the content I’ve been trying to read? If so, I’ll go back and reread a series that gets me amped for more reading. If it’s a truly terrible slump though, I try to get away from reading for a bit and do other things that I enjoy.
There are so many books coming out that you are dying to read. How many do you end up buying?
All of them. I’m pretty bad about buying before I’m ready. However, me read to TBR ratio on my bookcases is pretty good so I don’t feel bad when I buy books.
Ater you purchase all of these books that you’ve been dying to read, how long do they sit on your shelves before you get to them?
I’ll typically pick them up pretty quickly. I have that mentality of a child in a store where I buy something and need to experience it ASAP.
