The 15 Day Book Bloggers Challenge hosted by April @ Good Books and Good Wine. Day 10 in the 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge and today we're discussing how I choose what to read next.
Remember that post I did about blogger confessions and I confessed that I have a spreadsheet (as well as a Goodreads shelf) dedicated to the books that I have in my possession that I haven't read yet? Well yeah...that's kind of how I decide what to read next.
So I read the book description, look at the overall ratings in Goodreads and Amazon, and think about whether or not someone I know and trust has recommended the book to me or rated it highly. That gets it added to the TBR list. Then I discussed in this post, here, how I determine which books to buy.
Once a book has made it in my possession via purchase, borrowing from the library or friend, provided by author, publisher, NetGalley, etc, it gets added to my spreadsheet and Goodreads shelf. Once on the spreadsheet, I look at things like length, publication date, how long I've had it in my possession (especially if I'm borrowing it), and sometimes I just go for what I'm in the mood for or a particular title is stuck in my head. Often times too, I'm reading the sequel in a series. Those kind of take priority if they're new releases in series that I've loved the earlier books. At the same time, I try to read my review books within the proper time frame for the publication date.
How do you decide what to read next? Let me know!
