I know this is probably going to sound ridiculous, but I’m going to have to go with time, and now more than ever on account of the fact that I’m getting married in… 29 DAYS!! Whenever I come across a book that I’m interested in reading, the first thing I do is check my blog calendar. I’m a planner so I try to schedule my reviews around release dates, and fill everything in-between with requests, series catch-up, and my own personal picks.
Another important factor for me is is it available in audio? I’m currently listening to almost as many books as I’m reading, so this is a biggie for me. All of this wedding planning madness has forced me to become a multitasker extraordinaire! I’m not sure whether this trend is going to continue after the big day, but in the past two months I’ve racked up more listening hours than, well, ever.
And sometimes, after a long day, I pick a book based solely on my mood whether it’s the result of a little “retail therapy” or a random grab from my overflowing shelves.
