Hello?! Did you forget about me? Yeah…. sorry 😦 I never forgot about this place, but work has been so busy the last few months I’ve barely had time to stop. 😦
Anyway, I thought it was about time I showed my face again so today I’m back with a little book-related post. I saw Pamela from Starring Pamela do this tag the other day and couldn’t resist!
You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How do you decide what to read next?
No idea! Well, if I’m reading a book and there is a sequel to it already out I’ll generally pick up the sequel next so the story is fresh in my mind. Sometimes I stand staring at my bookcase though trying to pick one and eventually one takes my fancy. At the moment though I’m actually reading two books!
You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you put it down or are you committed?
I usually try to power through but sometimes I just can’t help and want to put it down (like Wicked). Although the book I’m reading at the moment I’m not really enjoying so I’m basically skimming it to see whether it improves.
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?
You want the honest answer? I read kids books! Before I’ve read the likes of Beatrix Potter, Jacqueline Wilson or Roald Dahl to try to catch up!
The covers of a series you love do not match, how do you cope?
It really upsets me! I would honestly buy the books of all the same cover so they look pretty on my bookcase. I’m the same with paperbacks and hardbacks. I’m in the process of trying to change a few of my hardback books into paperbacks (if I see them cheaply in charity shops) so they all sit nicely together on my bookcase!
Everyone and their mother loves a book that you do not. Who do you bond with over your shared feelings?
Usually there’s some reviews out there like on Amazon or Goodreads that feel the same!
You’re reading a book in public and you’re about to start crying. How do you deal?
I don’t think this would ever happen! I think the only ever book that made me a bit teary was The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks, but even then it wasn’t properly crying or anything.
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?
Weirdly I’m like this with my latest book I’ve started reading. I love the “I Heart” series by Lindsey Kelk and the last book in the series “I Heart Hawaii” has just come out. I started reading it and totally forgot that the main character had had a baby! I’m usually too impatient to re-read unless I have time before the new book comes out then I may re-read the last one.
You do not want anyone to borrow your books, how do you politely say no when someone asks?
Haha! I’m quite protective over my books, I don’t even like sending them to a charity shop when I know I’m not going to read them anymore! I do trust most of my friends though so I know I’d get them back!
You have picked up and put down 5 books in the last month. How do you get over this reading slump?
I’m not sure this has ever happened to me but I suppose just keep looking for a book that will hold my interest!
There are so many books coming out that you are dying to read. How many do you end up buying?
I’m terrible with books! I LOVE having books on my bookcase. I’m trying to get a little better, but generally there may only be 4 or 5 new ones a year I’ll buy. All generally from my favourite authors who release a new one every year.
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 on the book! Usually they’ll get read pretty quickly and make their way up my TBR list to the top!
And that’s the Reader Problems Tag! I’m not tagging anyone specifically but if you want to do this tag, feel free to do so! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed today’s post! I’m hoping to be back soon with some new posts! 🙂
