Feature & Follow: What to Read

Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read, as a way to meet new bloggers.

This week they posed the question "How do you decide what to read?"

I think this is an interesting question! Generally if I've just bought a book, I'll start reading it that day, even if I'm already reading something else. If I'm looking for something new from my tbr pile, it's largely dependant on my mood. If I want something lighter, happier, I might go for a historical romance. Steampunk always cheers me up too. If I want my usual, I go for an urban fantasy, I love those. It really does depend on feeling, and which book blurb I think sounds better out of the books I'm deciding between. Sometimes reviews sway me, but the kind of books I'm swayed to buy because of reviews are the kind I'll read straight away!

If you're interested in my reviews, feel free to follow by email, GFC, or on twitter :-)



  1. Choosing based on how you're feeling is always a great method!

  7. Oh man, if I started the books I bought immediately I would never finish a book! Haha! I tend to buy a bunch of stuff at once or just pick things up randomly. Who know when I'll get to them!

  8. I'm a mood reader, too! I always know what genre I want to read, but picking a book within a genre, that's where I can be super indecisive!

  9. There are at times that I choose based on my mood, too (especially when I want something tear-jerking haha).

  10. I'm OCD, so I read my ARCs and blog tour books first, but there are always times when a book I'm dying for comes out and I set everything aside and read it first because I can't help myself. LOL!. New GFC follower.
