Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books & Dani @ Literary Lion, where a topic is presented each week and we get to share our opinions on it and spread some love among others’s opinions too!
This week’s topic is: PUTTING OFF BOOKS I ACTUALLY WANT TO READ (SUGGESTED BY JILLIAN @ THE BOOKISH BUTTERFLY)
Do you ever put off the books you actually want to be reading?
I put a lot of books on hold because of new ones, to be honest i don’t know why, but like i’ll be making a TBR for the month but then a lot of other books will pop up and i’ll be wanting to read them too. The biggest problem is when i find new books and i instantly buy them, because then i just say “oh, it is already here, i might as well read it this moment”. It happens a lot. You may see it in my wrap ups for the month, i end up reading a lot of books i wasn’t planning on at first.
What do you end up reading instead?
There are so many things i end up reading, i don’t know where to start. I read every book that i find interesting at the very moment. There’s a very big chance i won’t end up reading them if i don’t pick them up the moment i have that “I HAVE TO” feeling. There’s a lot of books i have on my TBR since forever, and i feel i’ll never get to them. So yeah, i go with the flow because otherwise, it might never happen.
Why do you put off the books that you would rather read for other stories?
Mostly because i am a mood reader, i guess. There’s the right moment for the right book, or maybe i just don’t wanna read that big of a book at the moment, as i talked about on my post Who’s Afraid of the Big Book? I just have problem currently reading long books, so i put them on the waiting list, from where the might never come off. We’ll see, eventually.
Do you treat reading books you’re excited as a reward?
Not really, i feel like a love for the books i read. It’s not a reward it’s more of a relationship, so sometimes i just want then to end, but the books i love the most i just put them off as much as i can, like i want to read them as many days as possible, so i just read a little everyday. Unless i just really fall hard and then i devour them.
