The Reader Problems Tag!

Hey guys! Back again with another bookish tag post (yay!) – just a fun post to break up the reviews 😂

I was tagged to do this post by the lovely Stephen (from Stephen Writes) – a fab book blogger with some really cool reviews, would definitely recommend checking him out if you haven’t already!

Here we go!

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

I’m a big mood reader so I go with what I’m feeling. Luckily there tends to be a wide range of things on my TBR so there’s always something I’m happy to pick up.

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

I really try to finish all books I start so if I’m struggling with one, I’ll put it down for a bit and try something else but then come back to the first one. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t 😂

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?

I don’t tend to set reading challenges but if I did, I’d probably just go with the flow and try again next year!

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

Aargh, this has happened to me before! I was absolutely loving the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead and they went and changed the covers just as the last book came out – super frustrating but I still bought it and it’s still on my shelf 😂

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

My Nan, 100%. We have such similar views on books, we both love a thriller and she’s forever recommending books to me that I end up loving.

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

This happens to me all the time, always when I’m on the train on the way to work 😂 I just have to put the book down for a minute and concentrate on looking out of the window or something.

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 probably skim it but I’m lucky enough that things come back to me if I really think about it so wouldn’t have to do a full reread (unless the book was brilliant ofc).

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

The struggle is real! I’m such a stickler for this kind of thing. I’ll happily lend a book to someone I know won’t ruin it or break the spine, but other than that I may tell a white lie that I’ve promised the book to someone else first and hope they forget 😂

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

I usually try and read something short or something in a series that I know I’m enjoying and hope for the best!

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

Omg this happens to me every month, without fail! Luckily I get staff discount of books at work which means I can manage to get a fair few!

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?

SO LONG!! I have books sitting on there from years ago. That’s the downside of being a mood reader I guess 😂

  1. Ah I’m also like you when I am not fully enjoying the book I am reading, I tend to start another and then go back to the one I stopped reading! I loved reading your answers!


  2. I would say I’m envious that you get a staff discount so can buy loads of books. But I know I would get carried away and have to buy a second home just to fit them in.
