Reader Problems Tag!

Thank you Jennie for tagging me! All you have to do is answer the following questions. Let's do this!

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

Let's see, it would really depend on the mood I'm in. I would probably use my handy dandy TBR Jar for this though!

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

Again, it really depends. I usually try to push through but if worst comes to worst I would have to DNF it.   

 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?

I would definitely try to catch up! I would try to read shorter books such as novellas or graphic novels. 

The covers of a series you love do. not. match. 

How do you cope?

I hate when covers do not match. I would probably revert to buying the ebooks, so I wouldn't have to look at them on my shelves. 

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

I always try to have really honest ratings and reviews, so I would probably just explain the reasons I didn't enjoy it in the review. I'm an independent person for the most part, so I'm not going to just jump on the bandwagon!  

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

It depends on where I'm at. In certain situations I would just cry. So what? Yes, this book is making me cry! Oh well. But I also might just close the book and continue reading it later. I feel that that method would take away from the experience though. 

 A 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?!

Me being the lazy person I am, I always just read a really in depth summary, and maybe a few reviews. 

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

I'm usually really good about lending books to close friends. I was in this situation I would probably just say someone is already borrowing it, or called dibs.   

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

I always take a break from reading and write. It always helps me get out of a slump, and it helps me with all of the writing I need to do. 

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

I usually pick the ones I absolutely have to have and get those. Once I finish a few books I already have, I try to get the rest. 

 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?

If I'm already reading something, they might sit there for months. It just depends how many review copies and other books I have at the top of the waiting list. 

I hope you enjoyed this tag! I had fun doing it. Now I'm going to be boring and only tag one person.
