Tell Me Something Tuesday

Tell Me Something Tuesday is my latest meme addition to the blog. I can’t promise I’ll participate every week because sometimes I have a tough time coming up with something to say for every prompt for a meme like this. Still, I thought it’d be fun for something a little different.

Now, what do you say we take a look at this week’s topic?

Are most of your review books for publishers or are you reviewing books of your choice?

Since I started blogging, I’ve found it really easy to get caught up in the ARCs and neglect other books I want to read. Last year I started doing a better job of balancing my reading. I’ve done even more of it this year. I won’t say I’m quite at 50/50 when it comes to ARCs and books of my choice, but I’m getting closer. And honestly, some months I read more TBR books than review copies. It all depends on my mood.

I’ve come to realize I enjoy this whole blogging thing so much more when I’m not forcing to read books I might not be in the mood for at the time. I mean, yes, I do request quite a few ARCs so IĀ want to read them, but … when I’m in the mood. But, I also get unsolicited ARCs ā€” and even finished copies ā€” and my interest level varies with them. Nothing zaps the fun out of blogging more than sticking to a strict reading schedule or reading one book when I’m really in the mood for something entirely different. So, I just don’t make myself do it anymore. (Unless, of course, I’ve agreed to review by a specific date and then I make every effort to meet that obligation.) But that’s another topic for another day. šŸ™‚

Let's Chat

Are you reading/reviewing mostly ARCs?
Do you make time to read your TBR, too?

  1. I know, I used to request ARCs all the time early on when I started blogging, but I’ve really calmed down with it. I rarely download ARCs until I absolutely know I want to read it before it comes out. Sometimes I can get carried away, but I try really hard to not go over board. I’m much happier that way.
