The Reader Problems Book Tag!!!

The Reader Problems TAG

Thank you to the wonderful Dini over at Dini Panda Reads. She tagged me for this back in November 2019. I’m behind on my tags so apologies for the delay. I will have some more tags coming in March

You can read all of Dini’s great answers here.

page divider 5You have 20,000 books on your TBR, how do you decide what to read next?

It all depends on which TBR I choose from. If it’s for ARCs/eARC I tend to go for the ones that are overdue or have the closest publication date. But then library books take priority over all the books, especially if they are popular.

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

Dini If you’d asked me this question before I started blogging I would have said I’d be committed, but I have started DNF-ing books that I don’t enjoy. The only exception are for ARCs, and challenges it seems. I read these to the very end.

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?

Definitely try and catch up and I’d probably do it by listening to as many audiobooks as I can.

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

It would drive me crazy but I’d be happy that I had the whole series. Also most of the time I wait for all the books to come out before I buy them especially if I know it’s going to be a short series.

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

It would probably be my best friend. We tend to read similar books and most of the time we have different opinions on them.

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

Well, I’m not really one to get too emotional when reading but I would probably just close the book and wait to continue to read it at home.

page divider 5

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’d try to read the sequel first but then would go back and probably re-read the previous book, but only if I was totally lost as to what was happening.

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

I usually just tell them no they can’t borrow them. In fact there are only a couple of people who are allowed to borrow my books and that’s because I know I’ll get them back in the same condition as they left my house, and if they don’t they will actually replace them. Also only certain books are allowed to be borrowed.

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

Change to another format. I’ve found that if I’m struggling with a physical book, I can switch to an audiobook and get back on track or vice versa.

page divider 5

There are so many books coming out that you are dying to read. How many do you end up buying?

Probably end up buying the one that interests me the most and then reserve the rest from the library. If that fails then I’ll just buy them all.

page divider 5

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

Ok, so this all depends. I’ve been know to put them on my shelves and then forget about them for a couple of years, to reading them as soon as I get them.

  1. I loved reading your answers, Mani! I still really need to work on “DNFing” books because I still can’t bring myself to do it. I usually just put it down for a while and come back to it later (which usually helps) or I’ll skim through the read and latch onto sections that seem kinda interesting. I know time is precious 😂

    • Thanks Dini!!! I used to be like you but I’ve worked out forcing myself to read a book I’m don’t like lead to many reading slumps. Since I’ve started DNFing I haven’t experienced one, touch wood. 😉😁
