This weeks topic is ‘Putting off books you actually want to read’, I don’t think this will be a very long post haha! But I’m curious to your thoughts!
Do you ever put off the books you actually want to be reading?
All the time.. Sometimes I’m just very excited for a book, that I’m scared I will not end up loving it, and that would be disappointing haha! So I will read other books instead
What do you end up reading instead?
I will still read books that I look forward to, just with a bit lower expectations haha! So then if I do not end up loving it, the disappointment isn’t as big!
Why do you put off books that you would rather read for other stories?
Kinda already answered this, mainly because of the high expectations!
But also there are so many books I really want to read, I just cannot read them all at once!
Do you treat reading books you’re excited for as a reward?
Mostly no, since it is not that I do not want to read the books I’m reading instead, I’m just a little less excited for those.
I only sometimes do this when I ‘have to’ read an ARC that I’m not really excited about anymore (not as much since I requested it). I then sometimes think ‘once you finish this, you can read that’ haha!
As I said, short post this time.. Don’t have too much to say haha!
