My Reading Habits// Aka The Post Where I Expose Myself

I have absolutely no ideas at the moment so please bare with me until my brain starts working again (I cannot assure that it will start working anytime soon).

Hello everyone! Welcome or welcome back to my corner of the internet. Today I will be discussing my reading habits, both good and questionable.

I saw many other blogs do this and thought it might be a good idea to write my own post discussing my reading habits.

So without further ado, lets get straight into the post-

Good Reading Habits

  • Buying new books only after finishing the ones I own
    I have seen many people who buy every book that peeks their interest and then they have too many books piled up. I stop myself from buying a new book before finishing the ones I own for which I am pretty proud of myself.
  • Not requesting too many ARCs
    I know. Its tempting to request every book on Netgalley, but by doing so, you have to review all of them before they release which might be stressful.
  • Reading almost every genre of books
    Till last year, I read fantasy and only fantasy. This year, I have been experimenting and have been trying to read other genres like Thriller, Horror, Romance, Historical Fiction (Guess who found their new favourite genre) and many others.
  • Reviewing every book I read
    Ever since I started blogging, I reviewed every book I read on my blog and now I am also starting to review books on my GoodReads.

Questionable Reading Habits

  • Not taking notes while reading
    Many reviewers and bloggers take notes while reading, but I feel that taking notes while reading makes it feel as if I am studying. I don’t write in my books too.
  • Not reading multiple books at once
    I cannot read more than one book at once. With my memory of a goldfish, I will surely confuse multiple books.
  • Not putting down a book until the chapter ends
    Am I the only one who does this? I feel that it is kind of weird to stop in the middle of a chapter.
  • Not being able to read when it is noisy
    If it is noisy, I just cannot read. Tho if the book is exceptionally interesting, I can read through an earthquake, without even noticing it happened.

Bad Reading Habits

  • Not DNFing a book even tho I am hating it
    This is the reason I get into reading slumps. I just will force myself to finish a book even tho it is trash.
  • Struggling to read E-books
    I have definitely gotten better at reading E-books. It takes me so damn long to finish an E-book.
  • Reading only at night
    I somehow manage to read only at night. If I read whenever I had some free time, I would easily be able to read 10 books every month, but I am excel at procrastination so ya 😊✌
  • Judging a book by its title and cover
    I am very guilty about this. I always judge a book by its title and cover which is very bad.

Anyways,

Thank you for reading! Thank you for reading! If you enjoyed this post, don’t forget to leave it a like (or rate it) and follow my blog for more.

  1. Thanks for sharing this and let’s be honest, I think everyone one( at one point or another) judged a book by its title. Hahah, I’m the queen of reading multiple books at once but, I also don’t take notes when reading πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ˜œ

  2. I should really start doing what you’re doing and write reviews of the books I read! It would be so great to track what books I’m reading and remember what each of them are about!! About the ebooks, I totally get you – it took me some time to get used to it! As much as I love my Kindle, they can never beat paper books…πŸ˜«πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Awesome post as always ❀

  3. Hahaha, even your questionable reading habits are great!! Ooh, I wish I could just buy books read them and then buy another, unfortunately, I’m a hoarder with no self-control πŸ˜‚ And yess, I also force myself to finish books even when I hate them and it’s the worst 😭 I think I just tell myself that I can’t judge it unless I finish it, even though I totally could?

    I loved reading about your reading habits, great post!!

  4. I also don’t like stopping in the middle of a chapter. It feels kinda weird, like you said. But if the chapter is too long and I just can’t continue reading anymore, that’s when I stop in the middle of it πŸ˜…

  6. i am so happy i found your blog! i also read mostly at night since i am not allowed to have my phone in my room. i’ve also learned not to request too many arcs and only to request the ones that i want. i also just started getting better at dnf-ing books this year since last year i wasted by time on a lot of books, and most of the books i read this year have been 4 to 5 star reads.
