Friday Memes 1/31

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
When you receive new books in the mail, do the older ones get moved to the bottom of your list or do go strictly "by the book" and keep your list with older books first and then the new ones?

My Answer:
I always try to read review books first, so I read them based on which tour is closest, and then after that I just read whatever I feel like. Sometimes I'll try to mix up the ones I'm super excited about with the ones I'm less excited about, and other times I'll have random.org generate a number (I have a list of my unread books) and read whatever book it gives me. But generally I'll just pick what I'm in the mood for!

Death unfolds like a budding flower,
Tentatively, sweetly.
Unfurling it's majestic power
Until then my love...until then
Black roses last week, now spidery words scrawled on a scrap of paper with "Meade Funeral Home" printed across the top. Someone was stalking her, and they wanted her to know it.

My Thoughts
Great beginning! It captures your attention and makes you want to find out more!

I'm much like you with my reading habits. I try to get books that I've received for review done first (but unfortunately, a few of those have been sitting a while because I've been so busy). Then I try to read whatever I'm in the mood for!

How clever to open a book with a poem! The creepy beginning drew me in and made me want to know more.

Me too! I try not to do blog tours anymore. I have too many books here to read.

Abbi Hart said...

Elizabeth-Cool!

Alysia-I can't seem to say no! I have little to no money to spend on books so if I want to get the books I have to sign up for the tours and there are just so many good books out there!
