TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by Ginger at GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.
This Friday's Question: Choose Your Next Read: How do you go about choosing what you read next? Do you have a schedule you follow, or do you read whatever makes you happy at the moment?
I have a Review Books To Read spreadsheet where I update what books I've received, time frame if given, publisher and date released. I have stuck to this until quite recently where studies and work have taken up more of my spare time then I would have liked. I still read but not quite as much, if you have noticed. I definitely miss curling up on the couch with a good book and have slowly been getting back into. Fingers crossed I'll have some reviews up soon.
Sometimes though, I do get into a reading slump when it comes to review books. It's not that the books are bad or unreadable, it's more that the pressure of getting the books reviewed by a certain time frame tend to weigh in a little to the point where I can stop reading for a few days. I've found that picking up one from my own TBR pile does help. It also depends on my mood as to what I'll pick up next. Nine times out of ten I will reach for the review pile but there are those days where I like to shake things up a little.
How do you choose your next read???
