Book Tag | Reader Problems

book tag

I wasn’t tagged in this tag, but it looked like fun so I decided to do it anyways. I stole this tag from Kisses from Jess. I love doing tags like this because you can compare with other your reading habits and what you do with your books. I’m not going to tag anyone because I feel like tags like these should be open to everyone, so if you want to do this tag, do it!


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

TBR Jar. Unfortunately, I don’t have 20,000 books, but I’ve actually started using a tbr jar to help me pick what book to read next (unless I’m reading a series). It works great when I can’t decide. 

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

It depends really. If it’s just a random book I’m reading and I really don’t like it I’ll quit it, but if it’s like a NetGalley or a book someone has asked me to review I’ll push through. 

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?

Yes. Even if I know I won’t get the number of books read that I need, I will still read as many books as I can and try again next year. 

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

Try not to cringe and remember how much I like that series. 

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

I talk to my mom about most of the books I read good or bad. I don’t have a lot of friends that read like I do. 

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

Suck it up buttercup, at least until you can find somewhere to cope. 

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 hate when this happens. Depending on how long the prior book was, I may reread it, but if it’s like the next book in a several book long series I will try to get the gist somewhere else. 

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

Threaten their life. I’m just kidding, maybe. Luckily I don’t have a lot of book buddies. My brother borrows my books but he knows how I feel about my books. 

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

Wait it out. I get this way every now and then. I’ll try to pick up a book but I just put it back down. 

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

I take some money (not all of my money) and get the books I’m most excited about. 

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?

Oh lord. I’ve got SEVERAL books I’ve bought this year I haven’t gotten to yet. But I have them for when I’m ready.
