It’s Beth here – firstly apologising for not posting on this new blog! I used to post on the Blogspot version of Mind of a Bookdragon, but I’ve been so busy that I just haven’t found the time to post on this one. But I’m re-joining! I’d love to try and post more on here, and I’ll be doing some of these Book Chat posts!
Secondly, I’ll explain a little about myself for all new followers!
Other than that, I’m a bookworm & a Hustler (by that, I mean an All Time Low (mega) fan) – get all other thoughts out of your minds, thank you very much.
Anyway, on with the post! Where do you find books to add to your to-read list?
I follow a lot of book accounts on Instagram…so obviously I always see pretty covers, titles, spines & new authors. When you constantly see a new release it’s hard to ignore – it normally ends up all over your feed and you finally end up searching it…and adding it to that ever-growing TBR.
2.Other social media
Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr. THE BOOKS ARE EVERYWHERE.
And any book blogs, really. I take a look at my WordPress feed daily or whenever I blog…so if I see a good review for a book, it’s Goodreads all the way.
It’s so hard to walk into a book store and not find a book you want to read. Honestly, I normally go into main stores and want to just buy them all. Another thing is second hand books…they’re so cheap – so if they’re in good condition, they’re mine.
My main culprit is Goodreads. When I first became a YA reader I actually kept a list on my phone of books I wanted to read. Luckily, shortly after I became a Goodreads member and since then the list has been growing and growing. It doesn’t help (or it helps, in a way?) that I get recommendations from my friends and the website itself…yep, 600+ and counting.
