I don’t buy more books than I can read
I’m very proud of this one! My TBR constantly stays somewhere between 3 and 5. Back in Germany it was around 30-50 and I could not deal with it. It made me feel bad & under pressure and lead to me reading 5 books or so at the same time to get it down. It did not make for a nice reading experience and I felt relieved when my TBR was gone. I only realized after how bad it was for me. Now the process of buying a book is much nicer because I know that I will read it immediately or within a couple weeks. It’s a treat and something special!
I am still looking for new & interesting books all the time. But instead of buying them, I will put them on my wislist. I also noticed that every couple of years my taste in books changes slightly. I won’t end up with unread books I don’t care about anymore. This happened a couple of times in the past.
I’m not scared to read ‘old’ books
Variety is always best! I read new books/releases as well as old ones, as long as they interest me.
I don’t discriminate^^ When I am searching for new interesting reads, I don’t look at the year they were published.
I say it as it is
If I don’t like a book, I WILL tell you. I won’t make it nice and pretty, if the book had nothing for me.
I was a bit irritated by this movement against ‘negative book posts’ a couple of weeks ago. Some people were getting insanely upset about it? I’ve come across a post on twitter in which people who listed their flops of 2019 were condemned and it was suggested to make ‘worst blogger’-lists instead?
Whew, I’m glad I don’t follow any bloggers who are like that!
I understand people not liking others shitting on books for the sake of being nasty, even if I myself wouldn’t be too upset about it. But this was basically ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all’.
And I definitely don’t agree with that in regards to writing freaking reviews that express your personal opinion. I’m not even mad at people who tear a book to shreds. Everyone as they like.
If you don’t like someone’s way of reviewing, don’t follow.
But don’t tell them how they have to run their blogs or write their reviews.
…This is actually a good discussion topic. Please feel free to share your thoughts on negative reviews/worst book lists!
