Reader Problems Tag!
This is the ‘Readers problems’ tag. You answer the questions and then tag three
people afterwards! Here goes 😀
You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read
I am someone who is pretty methodical when it comes to my TBR shelf, which is
huge. I usually go for the oldest book on there! I am typically in the mood for
anything, and well, old things first!
You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you quit or
are you committed?
Whether I quit or not really depends on how bad it is. If it’s simply terrible
and I can see it isn’t for me in any way I will ditch it. But if I think it
still has potential (like Beautiful Creatures) or so I will stick with it for a
while longer. Especially when it is a book for review.
The end of the year is coming and you’re so close, but so far away on your
Goodreads reading challenge. Do you try to catch up and how?
I always try to catch up! I don’t really have a goodreads challenge, but more
so a Shelfari one. But I am someone who doesn’t like to lose, so you can
imagine the speed reading that happens in the Christmas holiday.
The covers of a series you love do. not. match. How do you cope?
Pfft I don’t mind xD I will admit though, my Percy Jackson collection on my
shelf with the same covers do look beautiful though…
Everyone and their mothers love a book you really don’t like. Who do you
bond with over shared feelings?
The best thing about the blog world is that there is
usually at least one or two or many more people who wouldn’t have liked
something everyone loved. I also spend a lot of time on Young Writers Society,
and usually there is a person there who agrees with me as well. Thank goodness
for the online community.
You’re reading a book and you are about to start crying in public. How do
I actually don’t usually cry with books, and I have never been in this
situation… I guess I would probably just cry. I have no problem with crying in
public because I cry when I laugh, so maybe I could pass it off as a funny
book? Or maybe just hit the bathroom. I don’t know xD
A sequel of a book you loved just came out, but you’ve forgotten a lot from
the prior novel. Will you re-read the book? Skip the sequel? Try to find a
synopsis on Goodreads? Cry in frustration?!?!?!?
This depends. I am gearing up for reading Inheritance by Christopher Paolini,
so I have reread all three of the first books. But in most cases I look for
reviews or summaries on Wikipedia or something 😛 I don’t usually forget
though, which makes me happy!
You do not want anyone. ANYONE. borrowing your books. How do you politely
tell people nope when they ask?
I’m pretty honest. Only a few people get to borrow my books because they are
mine… and I love them. So I will say no, you can’t lend it. If they ask why
then… I’ll mumble, be really awkward and probably not give them a reason in the
Reading ADD. You’ve picked up and put down 5 books in the last month. How do
you get over your reading slump?
I can’t believe this, but I have never been in a reading slump before! I am
sure this will happen with a year or two more of blogging under my belt. What I
would do would be rereading my favourites. Gone, Noughts and Crosses and
Twilight would probably do the trick!
There are so many new books coming out that you’re dying to read! How many
do you actually buy?
Uh, I would end up buying them ALL. I have a serious book buying problem. I
have so many print books to read, ugh.
After you’ve bought the new books you can’t wait to get to, how long do they
sit on your shelf before you get to them?
Longer than they should. I have books from last Christmas I have yet to read…
it’s just because there are so many! I am getting to them all eventually, don’t
