Reader Problems Tag

I found this tag on lovely Fabulous Book Fiend’s book channel and was all for it. She is one of my fave book bloggers and always has great content:

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

I usually have a look if I have some ARCs from publishers either as an ebook or paperback, then there is always NetGalley and I also have lots of books I bought. I then look at publication dates and try to review a book close to pub date. Its important to me though to read a book I bought in between as well.

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

Most of the time I finish the book, even though I don’t like it.

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?

Last year I was way behind for several reasons. Obviously I wasnt happy about it, but I didnt try to catch up, because I didnt have the time and its fine not to reach that goal, there are other and more  important things out there.

4. The covers of a series you love do. not. match. How do you cope?

Im not happy about it and I wouldnt put them next to each other in the bookshelf, but in the end its still the same story.

 5. Everyone and their mother loves a book you really don’t like. Who do you bond with over shared feelings?

Usually it’s one of my book blogging or author friend, because I know they will understand. They have all been in this position before and we can’t all like the same things, right?!

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

I just cry. That happened to me before. Sure, it was awkward, but I just took out a tissue and tried to dry my tears.

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?!?!?!?

I would probably read my review again and the blurb on goodreads.

8. You do not want anyone. ANYONE. borrowing your books. How do you politely tell people nope when they ask?

Id probably say that someone else has it at the moment ;). Or with some people Im really honest. They know my love of books and they understand.

9. Reading ADD. You’ve picked up and put down 5 books in the last month. How do you get over your reading slump?

I either read a book I loved again or change the genre, that usually helps.

10. There are so many new books coming out that you’re dying to read! How many do you actually buy?

All of them!

11. 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?

Not long!

What would your answers be?!
