Hallo lovely people,
How has your day being going? Its almost noon for me, and Astra @ A Stranger’s Guide to Novels has assigned me with a task! She’s tagged me on to the Reader Problems Tag. Woop Woop! Let everything else go on halt for the moment, an interesting tag has come my way! ^_^
Now as readers we come across many problems of out own let alone the ones of our fictional / non fictional acquaintances. I guess you are going to find out how I react when shit gets real O_O !!
Lets get on with the tag ! ❤
1.) You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next?
I’d probably check out a couple of blurbs, titles, or authors and go by my gut feeling. I always only read what I feel like. No point in trying to force myself to do so. There is a time and a mood for everything. ^_^ I dont go by hype books, usually I read them once everything has simmered down. (is that bad??)
2.) You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you quit or are you committed?
I always finish everything I read, if anything I’d switch a book and come back to it in a few days.
3.) 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?
If its a humongous number left, Id slow down and read the ones I feel more of an inclination to. If its a small number, I’d read my ass off, day and night. (if I dont have other obligations though)
4.) The covers of a series you love do. not. match. How do you cope?
*reads on while continuing to die inside thinking of the injustice in the world*
If I dont like a cover, I grab some paper, cover it up and write my own with markers and squiggly wiggles 😄
5.) Every one and their mother loves a book you really don’t like. Who do you bond with over shared feelings?
Everyone connects to books on a personal basis I believe but if I have to chose people, it’ll probably be my sister, one of my besties, and of recent times, some of you on here. 🙂
6.) You’re reading a book and you are about to start crying in public. How do you deal?
Sniff shamelessly into my tissue, head bent and book nearly soaked with tears dripping on it 😄
7.) 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 happened to me when I read the last TMI book, how in the world do I re read all 5 of the previous books!! I texted up the bestie mentioned above and we managed to string up the plot. I’d probably re-read the book if there was just one as I havent come across a situation as so yet. 🙂
8.) Reading ADD. You’ve picked up and put down 5 books in the last month. How do you get over your reading slump?
I’m going to say what Astra said. Watch some youtube videos, or some movies. I’d have a few days away from books or read something I know I will like. Also physical activity reves up our brains so maybe I’d go for a run or play something.
9.) There are so many new books coming out that you’re dying to read! How many do you actually buy?
Most times I dont get to buy new books off the bat due to where I live, either I have to get an aunt to buy it for me or when I visit some country I can. I always buy books in bulk, and they last me a few months. I get the ebooks if I really cannot wait. 🙂
10.) 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?
Probably 6 months to a year. If there’s something really interesting I’d read it in the weeks that follow the buy, otherwise they go on the TBR waiting list. There is usually tons of reading to be done along with the reading I do for uni 😄 (you poor things)
I’m going to tag a few of my recent friends on here ^_^ Have fun guys, I cannot wait to read your answers! And if you have done it before, no pressure to do it again!
Please do check out all the blogs linked! They are all wonderful, run by amazing people 🙂
Thats it! have an amusing day 😛
