I’m trying to be better about posting every weekday but I’m not doing so well at it. Today I’m bringing you a tag that the wonderful Ellie tagged me in back in December. Hopefully all of these tags that I’ve been putting off more months can help me plan my blogging schedule a bit better!
We haven’t been able to figure out who started this tag, so if you know, reply down in the comments!
1) What do you like about buying new books?
I enjoy the thrill that comes with adding a new book to my TBR and the uncertainty of whether or not he book is going to be my next favorite. Sometimes it seems like buying books is a lot more fun than reading them hahaha.
2) How often do you buy new books?
I actually don’t buy books that often because I’m subscribed to several book boxes so I don’t need to go to stores to get new releases every month. Rob and I will sometimes walk to a few used bookstores nearby us, but we’ve been going less than we used to.
3) Bookstore or online book shopping: which do you prefer?
Bookstores are much more fun (and dangerous IMO) than online bookshopping. The experience of walking in and picking up random books based on their covers or authors or titles is just so amazing. I particularly love going on for walks to discover new bookstores around me.
4) Do you have a favourite bookshop?
I don’t have a favorite, but the one that I most often go to here in Chicago is probably Bookman’s Corner. Rob and I also will walk to Amazon Books a few times as well but we buy from Bookman’s Corner more than from Amazon Books.
5) Do you pre-order books?
I’m really bad at keeping up with upcoming releases, so I don’t really preorder books. Rob is much better at figuring out that a book is coming out and preordering it for us. We do have two books we preordered from book boxes this year though. The first (which we just got last week) was Mister Impossible by Maggie Stiefvater. The second is One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston.
6) Do you have a monthly buying limit?
Nope! I don’t tend to overbuy books so I’ve never felt the need to set a buying limit for myself.
7) How big is your wishlist?
I honestly always forget that I have one. I don’t think it’s too big though. Let me check….
There are 15 books on it right now, which I think is pretty good!
8) Which three books from your wishlist do you wish to own right now?
Probably The Switch by Beth O’Leary, The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams, and The Boy in the Smoke by Maureen Johnson.
I loved Flatshare by Beth O’Leary, so I’m excited to read another book by her. The Bromance Book Club is a book/series I’ve been seeing all over social media and I’m getting serious FOMO from it. Lastly, The Boy in the Smoke is a prequel to the Shades of London series, which is one of my favorite series of all time.
I think most of the other people that I tag in these things have been tagged already, so f you’d like to do this tag, consider yourself tagged by me!
