I was tagged for this a few months ago by Abby @ Beyond the Read, and I’m really excited to answer the questions!
I couldn’t find the original creator of the tag anywhere, but if you know, please let me know! Also, wherever it says new books, I’m really answering it as new to me books, and could be books that I got new or used. So, thank you so much Abby, and I’m going to get right into the tag!
What do you like about buying new books?
I love buying books because it’s so satisfying to add to my book collection, and it also is so special once I have read the books to have them on my shelves. I get a lot of used books because they’re cheaper, and I don’t
How often do you buy new books?
It really depends. I usually get books a couple times a month, when I feel like going to a bookstore near my house. I also sometimes order books, but mainly for new releases because the bookstores close to where I live don’t have as many newer books.
Bookstore or online book shopping: which do you prefer?
I definitely prefer shopping in a bookstore! In a bookstore, you can browse shelves, and look through books to find the books you want to get. Bookstores can also be so fun and cozy, and you can spend so much time in them!
Do you have a favorite bookshop?
There is a bookstore a few blocks away from my house that I really love going to! There are a lot of really nice used books that I love browsing through, and the whole environment of the bookstore is really fun. I also love Barnes and Noble!
Do you pre-order books?
I sometimes do! I’ve preordered more books as I’ve been more aware of new releases, but I won’t just preorder any book. I usually will preorder books that are sequels to books I’ve loved, or by an author who’s books I’ve previously loved.
Do you have a monthly buying limit?
I don’t. I really just buy books when I can, and some months I’ll get more books than others.
How big is your wishlist?
My TBR is very long, but my book wishlist isn’t that long. I actually only made it pretty recently, and I haven’t added many books to it. I have six books on it right now, but I’ll probably add more in the near future.
Which three books from your wishlist do you wish to own right now?
Right now, three books I really want to own right now are: The Gilded Wolves, by Roshani Chokshi, King of Scars, by Leigh Bardugo, and We Hunt the Flame, by Hafzah Faisal.
