My Good Reading Habits Tag

Morning, everyone!

I know. Mondays are always hard to go through. So to brighten up this new work week, I thought a tag might be the right post to write.

I’ve seen a lot of tags, and I’m always looking for more. But I love finding a new one. They’re refreshing. Last year, Ally, from Ally Writes Things, created this clever one. And I saw it on Kaleena’s blog, Reader Voracious. Before you get to my post, show these lovely bloggers some love, won’t you?

Enjoy the read!

When Finding a New Read, I Don’t Always Trust in the Book Hype

Book hype is a tricky beast to understand. Sometimes, the hype is real. Other times, I feel I’ve wasted my time, and I wish I never read or bought the book. So I don’t always read or buy a book quickly. I’ll wait for the hype to die down.

 

I Set a Reasonable Timeline for Reading

With romance books, I know I’ll read them before seven days. However, with other titles, I typically give myself about a week to finish it so I have at least one new book review on my blog.

 

I Rely on Bloggers I Trust Before Solely Following Goodreads Ratings

Ratings are difficult to trust. Some reviewers may give a 5-star rating when they haven’t read the book at all. Others will leave a 1-star rating. So when you’re in a make-or-break decision before reading, I want to read reviews from bloggers I trust.

 

I Typically Read New Titles Once I Get Them, Not Wait

I’m a firm believer of reading from my physical TBR pile. And as I write this post, the books on my shelves are cackling at me. But I give priority to new releases. I have a long list of anticipated reads, and I hate when I wait longer to get to them.

 

I Don’t Feel Guilty for DNFing Books, even ARCs

I shouldn’t feel guilty, right? Sure. For years, I did feel it though. I hated not finishing a novel. But I can’t force myself to drag myself through a story that’s not entertaining me. I’ve wasted too much time finishing books I shouldn’t have.


Tag Time

So who’s up for another tag? If you are, link back to my post. If you’re not, don’t feel pressured in doing so. I hope you all have fun.

  1. Awww yay! I hear you on the hype one – I try really hard to think about if the book is something I think I would enjoy based on the synopsis and blurbs, not because everyone is screaming about it. Hype is hard because it sometimes builds up a book to unrealistic expectations for me, too. Just hard.

  2. Thanks for the tag! I’m actually very similar with you regarding some things like being wary about hype and relying on other bloggers to find good reads, but I definitely need to get better with not feeling bad about DNFing books, and I’m very guilty of letting new books sit when I should be getting to them right away 😛
