I’ve seen this tag going around the blogosphere and I definitely had to give it a try! I couldn’t find the original post but I seen it first at Let’s Get Galactic!
My first thought was to pick a book out of a TBR jar!
I would say 9 times out of 10 I am committed but I am really not gelling with the book I have no qualms with putting it down!
Well last year I actually got to 99 books and it was the last day of the year and I really struggled with just speeding through a book and not enjoying it or leaving it at 99 which killed me. I didn’t end up reading the book and I just told myself to cut me some slack, 99 books is still an amazing number and I’ll try again next year. I am actually well over 100 books for 2019 so I am very happy with my progress!
This has happened so many times to me now! At first it’s a struggle to see them all mismatched on my shelves, so I either just deal with it or try and wait for like the paperback set to come out and replace them. Depends on how much I love the series.
I’m not shy about voicing my opinions if I am in a minority in terms of loving a book or not. There are usually one or two people that I come across either online or IRL that share my feelings and we can discuss together.
I usually close the book for a few seconds and take a few deep breaths.
No, I will either read my review and that will spur my memories or I will just read a summary online.
I honestly don’t mind if someone borrows my books as long as the return it when I ask and in the same condition. They get one chance, if they misplace or damage then I let them know they can’t borrow anything else, sorry!
I would maybe try a different format of book, like I might try an e-book or an audio book, if this still doesn’t work then I usually take a full week or two of not even thinking about or touching any books, giving myself a time out in order to refresh.
Only the ones I am absolutely DYING to read, otherwise I like to check my local library or try and wait until I see some reviews to know whether or not it’s worth it!
If I am super excited about them I like to get stuck straight in, but if the book is just super hyped then it’s just all about what I feel like at the time. Could be a week or two, could be a couple of months.
