Tell Me Something Tuesday: Being Drawn in by Books

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where Rainy discuss a wide range of topics from books to blogging. Weigh in and join the conversation by adding your thoughts in the comments. If you want to do your own post, grab the question and answer it on your blog.

What are things are you drawn to when choosing your next read?

There are so many things that draw me in when I am picking my next read. Where to even begin? I feel like it all depends on the genre and feeling. 

Ah yes.

First thing is feeling. I go with how I am feeling. Do I want something light? Something heavy? Something fantastical? Something random? 

I have been trying to be more scheduled the last couple of years especially now that I do some reading for publishers and authors, but when the choice is mine, I go with a feeling. 

Once I have a feeling picked out. I’ll go with which book fits that feeling the best. It sounds complex, but the heart knows what the mind wants. 

If I am unsure, I will let my friend pick or my boyfriend pick. That rarely happens, but there are times when I have no feeling to point me in the right way. 

I should've put this one on a canvas instead of my painting book. Super cute.

I tend to choose based on when the book is due back at the library... one of the benefits of borrowing books instead of buying them. Cheers from Carole's Chatter

Letting others pick tends to work for me. Then I can blame them

Carole Rae said...

Carole, hahaha good point. First one that goes back needs to be read first

Melliane, same here!

B, hehehe right???

"Sweet Dreams" is cute. You saying you should have put it on canvas reminded me of my daughter. She painted this really pretty beach scene yesterday - on a piece of cardboard she cut from a box because she was out of canvas board.

Oh no! That would've been beautiful!

Whatever works, right? :) I just browse covers and pick whatever one catches my eye first. lol

Anna, right? That is how I feel!
