The How I Read Books Tag



Thank you  Deanna for tagging me! Go check out her blog 😀

How do you find out about new books to read?

Before I used to ask my friends at the school library for recommendations when I was younger. I find most of my books now on Tumblr since I follow many book accounts. Goodreads is the second place where I find my books. Then it would be BookTube, that’s where I know if a book is overhyped or not. Other than that, there are some bookstagrams as well.

How has your taste in books changed since you got older?

I believe it has somewhat changed. I read more classics when I was younger and I currently read a lot more young adult books. For example, I read only one classic this year and far more YA. Though some things have not change such as me not liking vampire books.

How often do you buy books?

To be honest, I am trying to stop buying as much books. I haven’t hauled as much books as I thought I would this year. I have bought one book for each month, except for this month, I ended up getting two.

How did you get into book reviewing?

My friends started a book club when I was younger and that’s how I started reviewing books years before I started a blog. Though that book club does not exist anymore, I wanted to continue reviewing books. I never really thought of reviewing books online until I discovered Goodreads. I really liked how other users would express their commentary on books. I didn’t think my writing was the best, but my sisters kept encouraged me to review books as a hobby. Then I started a blog and I find it really fun to review. I am glad that people get to see my reviews of the books that I have read even though it includes spoilers and I feel my writing has gotten better because of it.

How do you react when you don’t like the end of a book?

I usually sit on my bed and think about what I just read, I mostly feel stunned, and I look back at my notes. That’s what usually happens when a book starts off great and ends terribly for me. I don’t have any other reactions ha ha.

How often do you sneak peak at the ending to see if there is a happy ending?

I try not to peak at the book’s ending because I usually end up rating the book a bit lower than I was originally going to rate it. I ended up peaking at the end of the book twice this year.

      • And a new Kindle. lol. People always ask “so where are you going to put this book now?” And it’s always I’ll find room somehow.

      • I have a kindle too! But, I love my physical books so much more. I do have books stacked on my bed since I ran out of room for right now ha ha. Yeah, its easy to find room for my books. Though, I do have to get rid of books I did not like.
