Another day, another post with an old tag I randomly found and haven’t been tagged in. The Reader Problems Book Tag was created by Book Loving Nut, and I found it on Paper Pizza Blog. Without further ado….
You have thousands of books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next?
I have a general idea of what I want to read and their order of importance, at least on my physical TBR. But, in times I’m really not sure I either get people to vote on it for me, or use a book bingo I’ve found on either Pinterest or Instagram to inspire me.
You’re halfway through a book you’re not loving? Do you put it down or are you committed?
I really really wish I could DNF books. But no. I’m committed. Once I start something, I have to finish it. Every single aching sentence. But at least I can then say I read that book, right?
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 feel like the me this year would probably try to catch up (though I’ve reached my reading goal this year already yay!) But in the past I’ve always let it be and read at my own speed. I am a slow reader and that’s okay.
The covers of a series you love don’t match. How do you cope?
I’d be a little annoyed, but I don’t think I’d go out and buy new books to make them match, when I could use that money to buy new books!
Everyone and their mother loves a book you do not. Who do you bond with over your shared feelings?
Oh, so it’s me with Shadow and Bone. Well, I think honesty is best policy, so I’d give my honest review online and I’m bound to find at least one person that shares my feelings.
You’re reading in public and are about to start crying. How do you deal?
Honestly, I just cry if I have to and hope no one notices if I keep to myself.
The sequel to a book you loved just came out but you’ve forgotten a lot that happens. Do you reread?
No, I don’t typically reread books when there are so many other books out there to read. I just hope that the setting of the sequel triggers my memory and it usually does.
You do not want anyone to borrow your books, how do you politely say no to someone who asks?
I can’t relate to this. I always let people borrow my books. I want to have my own personal library someday and that’s a library thing to do. Of course, my sister has lost quite a few…
How do you get over a reading slump?
I’m not really sure I’ve ever been in one to be honest! Maybe it’s because I don’t believe in DNF-ing.
There are so many books coming out that you’re dying to read, how many do you end up buying?
This is SO relatable. I buy what I can, especially if they are on sale, and then put the rest on a wish list, especially if my birthday or something is coming up.
After you purchase all the books you’re dying to read, how long do they sit on your shelves before you get to them?
*laughs awkwardly* Technically I don’t put a book on my shelf until I’ve read it. It’s like a trophy, proud to have been read. But until then, it could be sitting on a table for, well, years, or at least months….
What are some reading problems you experience?
