Feature and Follow Friday--Picking My Next Read

Question of the Week: How do you decide what books to read? - Suggested by

So Many Books, So Little Time
This question touches base on a recent post I wrote. I am an emoitonal read. I pretty much read whatever I'm in the mood for, whether it be contemporary, fantasy, or otherwise.
I'm also a total cover lover, that grabs me first. After I get over that, I check out the synopsis. If the blurb grabs me, it immediately goes on my TBR. How I decide after that is totally emotional. I read what I feel, unless I need to review. 
At which point, I try to put aside my feelings but I usually picking one of the ARCs that fit what I feel like reading.

  2. Soon as I finish a book, i normally ask my sister books she has read and which one is a good one, and go from there x

  5. Sometimes it's hard to pick out my next read. I'm a mood reader too, but sometimes there's just too many books to choose from! Am I in the mood for light and fluffy contemporary, some sexy NA, fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian? Sometimes I read a chapter, put it down, pick up another book, read a chapter, put it down, etc. Until one works. ~Pam

  6. I am a cover lover too - I know that we shouldn't just a book by its cover, but there is something amazing about a beautiful cover that just draws me to the book!

  7. I'm drawn in by nice covers as well. That's the first thing that interests me in any random books that I come across.

  11. I'm pretty much the same way, I need to read what I'm in the mood for!.
    I'm a marathoner as well at times. If I loved the first and I have the second I'll move right on to the next :)

  12. I love covers as well! I know they always say don't judge a book by it's cover but that's what draws my attention first! After that it's pretty much if I just see the book on other blogs or it gets good ratings or it has an interesting blurb.
