What Determines Your Next Read?
To be honest, I had NO idea people had lists and schedules of books they want/have to read and when they are going to read them. Do these work? For people that do this, do you find it easier to stick to and manage your TBR list? What determines your schedule?
For me, because I am obviously not a list/schedule maker which is actually pretty shocking to me because I make lists for EVERYTHING and I love being organized, but in regards to what I read next this also is not a shocker...it's all about the feels.
What Do I Mean By This?
When I finish a book, I look at my TBR list, what books I already have in my possession, what review books I have, I look at them all and one of them usually sticks out to me. A lot of depends on my most recent read. If it was a heavy book, I usually go for a fun, lighter read. Usually it's a sexy book. If I got a really awesome review book while in the middle of a current book, I read that next. There is a little method to my madness but overall there isn't really a rhyme or reason to it. It just FEELS right.
I'm not sure I could be convinced to go by a schedule or make a strong list of what to read when. However, with that said, review books will usually always be towards the top of my lists. I have yet to post a review of a review book after the publication date. I am a psycho about this and my stance is, if you're giving me this book for free to read because I asked to, the least I can do is read it and give my feedback prior to publication. Which is another reason I'm pretty stingy on my requests but that's a whole other topic.
So what about YOU guys.
Do you use a schedule?
Does it work for you?
Does it depend on your mood?
