As a reminder, this is a challenge hosted by Good Books and Good Wine.
Today is asking how we choose what book to read next. Yay for more bullet points!
- The first thing that really matters is blog tours. Those are on specific deadlines, and I know that I need to start the book at least a week before my blog tour date. Sometimes, I'll be trying to finish a book before a blog tour, and sometimes I even plan on reading one more book before the blog tour book. But then life gets in the way.
- My choice of genre is very narrow. I only really read young adult and the few times I do read new adult, it's mostly for blog tours. I actually have books that I will read once I decide to start branching out or just feel like reading a more mature book, but for now, young adult really is my genre.
- Books that I'm really excited for get priority after blog tour books. There are certain books that I just bought that I am absolutely dying to read and so I know that they're going to be good and that I'l probably read them fast enough to get to the blog tour book in time.
- I gruel over reviews for books if I'm certain I really want to read it next. A lot of times, sequels to books are no-brainers because I'm already really excited to read it and I don't need to read any reviews to find that out.
How do you choose what book to read next? Let me know in the comments!
