Reader Problems Book Tag

Like the previous book tag I’ve done, not a single soul on planet Earth tagged me so since I am a shameless reader, I decided to still do this.

1. You have 20,000 books in your TBR, how in the world do you decide what to read next?

In that case, I would just burn all my books and stoo reading since I don’t really love books. Kidding! Well, I would close my eyes and read the 1st book my hand lands on, yep, that’s what I always do.

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

When I was still a beginner, I would forced myself to finish all the books despite the fact I am hating it simply for the reason I don’t want to waste cash and effort. However, now? Nah, I’ll just put it down. Lufe is too short to read boring books.

3. 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?

Based on my experience, I decided to ditch all my plans even though I don’t have one in order for me to just finish it. Luckily, I already finished my 2018 reading challenged. My goal was 40 yet I managed to score 97.

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

Of course, at first, I would be a bit annoyed but you know what, that’s life so I am just going to shut up and accept it. Besides, who am I to complain?

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

Well, I am the type of readers who usualy ended up reading the book that everyone loves so what would I do? Move on and rant a little over the internet. A bit immature, I know.

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

I would pretend as if no one is watching me and just finish what I am reading because if I stop reading now and just continue it next time then I would not experience the same emotions.

7. 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?

This always happens to me and no, I would not reread it. I will just read its summary somewhere over the rainbow, I mean on some random sites, I guess.

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

I’ve experienced this so many times and you know what I always do? I sometimes would say yes if and only I know they needed it but if not then I would say, “Oh, my copy is currently at my cousin’s,” and yep, it always works.

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

I would reread my favorite book, read bookish memes or watch two movies in a row, for some reason, after that, I am in the mood to read.

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

I would probably buy zero, to be honest. Why? Because I would read just stick to ebooks which are free (I know a site, shhhh!)

11. After you purchase all of these books that you’re dying to read how long do they sit on your shelves before you get to them?

Well, back then, during ny beginners stage, it would sit for like months.

The Ten Book Tag Challenge

I’ve had enough of my mountain-like sins so I guess I’ll just be honest with this one. I am not tagged my anyone due to the roaring fact I have no friends. I am just simply eager to answer all these questions.

The rules:

List 10 books that have stayed with you in some way.

Do not take more than a few minutes and do not think too hard.

They do not have to be the “right” books or great works of literature,

just ones that have affected you in some way.

Paste these instructions and tag 10 friends, including me, so I can see your list.

1. A book that made you think.

Look, to be fair, not only is the romance of this very novel is excellent, the issue it tackles as well. Obviously, I am fortunate enough to not experience the horror of the World War Two. With the help of this book, I’ve come to realize all their hardships during the war that made me think about the real victims. Why are the commanders, the one who hides inside their offices were well known, how about the real unsung heroes? The soldiers who truly fought the battle? The widows and the orphans?

2. A book that will always be special to you.

Truth be told, I am not really a fan of this book nor the movie. The reason why this book has a special place to my heart? It is the very first foreign novel I’ve read that got me into reading more books like this. In short, I owe this fella a lot.

3. A book that exceeded my expectations.

When my heart joins the thousand remains one of my favorite novels of all time. I just stumbled upon it on the internet and decided to give it a shot and look and behold, I was surprised at how beautiful yet heartbreaking this novel is. If I were given a chance to write my own novel, it would totally be similar to this one.

4. A book that made you cry.

I am not the type of reader who usually cry. I mean, in the back of my mind, I am sobbing yet zero tears fall. Anyways, the very book that seriously made me sob hard was “My Oxford Year”, go and give it a shot, guys. Besides, I heard it’s going to be a movie soon.

5. A book that made me feel nostalgic.

Majority of you might not know this but it would be The Bet. My very first physical book that really got me into reading in general, way before reading Perks of Being a Wallflower.

6. A book that made you feel happy.

I seriously can’t think of any novel because I usually read books with open ending, that made me stay awake at night thinking what happened to the characters. But since I have to answer this, I have to think hard. The least problematic novel I’ve read that I loved, as far as I remember is The Hating Game.

7. The book that I’ve read the most.

No doubt would it be The Host. Despite how massive it is, I still love rereading it so many times. Due to how addicted I am to it, I even read a handful of fanfictions.

8. A book that broke my heart.

No joke, it would totally be Throne of Glass series. I know it’s not a single book but hey, you get my point. The first and second book were nothing but masterpiece for me but the third installment? Went downhill, if you ask me. Not really a fan of a huge number of characters and constantly changing love interest. And yes, I stopped reading the series at book 5.

9. A book that gave me feels.

To be frank, I don’t 100 percent understand this one but I guess I’ll go with The Ring and the Crown. One minute, I am totally loving it to the point I am considering of making the male protagonist as one of my few book boyfriends though the next few chapters, I was sad, angry, and frustrated. Then the following chapters, I’ll go back with being elated once again. A rollercoaster-ride, indeed. By the way, the emotion I’ve felt in the end was nothing but frustration.

10. A book I wish I hadn’t read.

I have so many books I wish I never picked up nor bought. The first book that pops in my mind is And I Darken. Complete waste of time and money, to be honest. If I could only turn back time.

And that’s all, nerds. See you again next challenge. Oh, if you want to do this tag then feel free to. It’s not like you’ll rot in jail if you do this tag without anyone tagging you. Ha!
