Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and Bookish. Each week the bloggers at The Broke and The Bookish put out a topic, and discuss their top ten options for said topic. This week it’s all about your book blogging confessions.
I’m terrible at cross-posting my reviews to Goodreads/Amazon/B&N/Smashwords. I try really hard to do so, but often it just slips my mind. I’m trying to make more of an effort to do it–I’ve made checklists for when I post reviews and I think this will help me cross-post.
I get really weird about the amount of book tour/gifted books compared to the books I purchase or get from the library. I want to keep an even balance, but I always feel that it skews more toward gifted books. I’ve been absent for a while, but while I was gone I worked out a schedule of postings and keeping things even enough to make me happy and not feel like everything I get is free.
I have–HAVE to finish series. Even if I don’t blog about each individual book. It’s compulsory and I’ve finished some series that I just loathed because I had to finish them. I have to read and share complete series even if it takes a while. I’m still slogging my way through the House of Night series.
My to-be-read pile has taken over the bottom two shelves of my bookcase, I have a three foot stack hiding in my closet, overtaken another book case, and I have a few boxes tucked away. I have a book buying problem. I go out for coffee and I come back with three more books. I don’t mind this compulsion, but I feel bad because I buy so many and I get distracted re-reading something rather than reading one of the many new books.
I read a lot of manga, and I want to start blogging about it more. I’m just not certain how many people are interested in it. Plus, I read some really weird/off the wall series along with the mainstream ones. I might start doing a monthly feature on a series that I’ve read or am reading.
