How I Read Book Tag

How I Read Book Tag

I’d seen this book tag on Emily’s blog A Keyboard and an Open Mind and Claire’s at Art and Soul so decided to tag myself.

So here’s the How I Read Book Tag in which you might find out a few more things about me πŸ™‚

  • How do you find out about new books to read?

Mostly from other bloggers posts that I follow or from Twitter.

  • Has your taste in books changed as you go older?

I wouldn’t say changed so much but since joining a book club I am more open to different genres. When I was in my late teens/early twenties all I read was the latest John Grisham, whilst I still enjoy a Grisham and legal thrillers are still my favourite I try a lot of different books now.

  • How often do you buy books?

Not as often as I like (see my blog on Books & Budgets). I use my library a lot more than I used too and do have the luxury of using sites such as Netgalley and Bookbridgr.

  • How did you get into book reviewing?

A friend suggested it to me that I start my own blog. I never even knew there was such things as book review blogs or even that the commnunity was large as it is. I didn’t even know that publishers sent out review books prior to publication and that I could even get involved in that.

  • How do you react when you don’t like the ending of a book?

Am usually gutted and will probably have a little outburst even if I’m the only one in the room! This happened to me with Gone Girl and A God in Ruins. I got to the end and felt that I’d been cheated. I’ve invested a good few hours in this book and I can’t believe that’s what the author chose.

  • How often do you sneak peak at the ending to see if there is a happy ending?

I’m quite impatient and I have done this before and then instantly regretted it and not necessarily just to find out if it’s a happy ending.


Thanks Claire and Emily for sharing. If you’d like to have a go at the How I Read Book Tag please consider yourself tagged and if you’d like to leave your link in the comments, I’ll check out your answers πŸ™‚

    It’s a really nice tag:)
    I know my university library much better than any classroom. I spend some much there it feels a little like home! I can’t wait to get a full time job and treat myself with books though… #oneday !

    I’m not sure I’ve ever actually read a John Grisham book, despite being aware of him all the time. Legal thrillers probably aren’t quite my thing, I’m more likely to pick up a really psychological and/or paranormal thriller myself.

    I’m trying to do a book tag most Thursdays, so feel free to steal any more than you fancy! πŸ™‚
