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

This is an easy question I automatically go with my default. I will read something that has to do with vampires, mermaids, fangirls, and ghosts.

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

That depends on what the book is. typically if I’m not enjoying a book I will just persevere because sometimes the ending it’s worth it. If I’m really not vibing with the characters and I will most definitely put it down.

3 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?

How far behind in my challenge am I? The answer to this question is yes I will definitely try my best to keep up. a few ways that I go about accomplishing this goal is I listen to audiobooks. I will also read serialized series. These are books that are under a hundred pages and can typically be read within an hour or two. 

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

I will 110% go out and buy only copies of the book. A lot of people tell me that that’s a waste of my money but I really don’t see how. A lot of the books that I buy are ebooks so the reader just update the covers for Maze so that’s really cool about ebooks

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

I will typically bond with people over the Internet. A lot of the people who are in my life don’t like to read. The one person I would rush over books with is my mom or my grandmother. My mom has the same taste in adult books that I like to read and then my grandmother has the same taste in young adult books.

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

I don’t care where I am if the book is sad and I start crying I just go with it. he will sign me in the middle of the mall or a bookstore just crying my eyes out.

The sequel to a book you loved just came out but you’ve forgotten a lot of what happens. Are you going to reread it?

I will totally read the book just too kind of refresh my mind.

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

This is going to sound so bad but I really don’t tell people nicely that they can’t borrow my books. If they go up towards my bookshelf I will drop what I’m doing start yelling stop takes three steps back from the bookshelf. My bookshelf is my pride and joy.

You have picked up and put down 5 books in the last month. How do you get over this reading slump?

I will either binge-watch Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube or pick up a book that is one of my all-time favorites.

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

All of that because I have most likely pre-ordered all the books that I am dying to read. Typically in a year, it’s only maybe 5 books that I’m dying to read. And these are all from my auto-buy authors.

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

That usually depends. I have a few books that I bought 5 years ago they’re still sitting on my shelf that I’m just now getting around to. All go through different phases and I’m a huge mood reader. So add the time it could Steam like the most awesome book in the world. When I go to pick it up I start reading it and I’m just not in the mood for it so then I will set it back on my bookshelves and I will completely forget that I have it. I’m a bad book mother.

Thank you all for joinging me here in our little part of wonderland. Please don’t forget to feed the unicorns on your way out. They are feeling lonely.

Until next time

Much love

    1. I’m getting better about feeling OK with DNF – I read for enjoyment and if I’m not enjoying it – why bother and the author is better off if I stop as they wouldn’t enjoy my review. So reading a book you don’t enjoy amounts to a punishment as well as a total waste of time and energy.

  1. Oh man I can relate to getting annoyed when people go near my bookshelf! I usually place my books in a very specific order and I don’t like it getting messed up lol!

  2. I have such a hard time DNFing a book. I read one recently that I really wanted to DNF but I couldn’t get myself to do it and pushed through. Also, I totally understand leaving books on your shelf for years. I have so many that I bought 5 plus years ago that are still sitting on my shelf and I haven’t gotten to them yet, and don’t plan to in the near future. Whoops!

  3. I have so many books on my shelves and Kindle that have been there for years, so I’m really trying to make a dent in those this year before buying new ones. Although, there are several books coming out this year that I’m definitely buying!

  4. I promised myself this year to not struggle with books just to finish them. I read close to half before I stop though. Life is too short.I struggle with the argument of e-books and paper books. Like you I read way more ebooks than anything else. I don’t have the room for a great big bookshelf. I have one with two sides, one for me and one for DH.

  6. This was a fun tag. There are only a few books I DNF. I have this personal need to finish. I hate not knowing how it ends… even if I’m not particularly enjoying it. Sometimes I’ve been pleasantly surprised and a book has really picked up towards the end. Unfortunately some don’t though.
