The Reader Problems Book Tag

Photo by Vincenzo Malagoli on

I found this book tag over at the blog I Won’t Say I’m in Love With Reading if you want to check out the reader’s responses.

1. You have 20,000 books on your TBR, how in the world do you decide what to read next?

I’m a mood reader across all genres. Basically if I get tired of one genre, I move on to the next until I go through all my favorite genres before circulating back. I usually pick up a book in the genre that I’m in the mood for at the moment. If that particularly book isn’t catching my attention, I look for something else.

2. You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you put it down or are you committed?

Sometimes I finish it, but most of the times these days, I just pitch them. Life’s too short to finish a book I don’t like.

3. The end of the year is coming and you’re behind on you’re reading goal, do you try to catch up? And if so, how?

I try to catch up and then when it’s obvious that I won’t be able to, I lower my reading goal for the year. I’m so silly. I might do that this year because 100 is a little too much for me.

4. The covers of a series you love do not much, how do you cope?

Series covers don’t match? Haha. I don’t read many series these days, but when I do, I usually buy or borrow them at the same time so they’re all the same cover usually. Different sized books are weird, like if one book is taller than the other.

5. Everyone and their mother loves a book you do not. Who do you bond over with your shared feelings?

Only place I talk about books is on here and at work and most people don’t read the same books I do unfortunately. I don’t read one genre exclusively so I can’t talk about some books with others.

6. You’re reading a book in public and you’re about to start crying. How do you deal?

I don’t usually cry over books so I don’t know how I’d deal if I actually did start crying.

7. The sequel to a book you love is about to come out but you’ve forgotten a lot of what happens. Are you going to re-read it?

I’ll try to re-read it or I’ll just read the sequel and hope for the best. I’m not good at reading sequels or finishing series so I always end up forgetting what happened.

8. You do not want anyone to borrow your books, how do you politely say no when someone asks?

No one ever asks for my books so I don’t know. My husband sometimes does if it’s something he likes but that’s not often.

9. You have picked up and put down five books in the last month. How do you get over your reading slump?

Usually I’ll just watch YouTube or a show on streaming until I get bored with that and reading is fun again.

10. There are so many books coming out that you’re dying to read, how many do you end up buying?

I’d want to buy them all, but I don’t usually buy books anymore (unless they came out a few years ago.) I’ll check them out at the library if the library has it. Usually it’s a long wait, though.

11. After you purchase all these books that you’re dying to read how long do they sit on your shelves before you get to them?

Probably forever. It’s taking forever for the books I do have.
