Happy Sunday my lovelies!!! As always I’m happy to have you all back for another Stop & Chat discussion. This week I wanted to go over something that has remained elusive to me…..
I live by what I call organized chaos. My desk, my room, my purse even my car all, at first glance, look like these horrible monstrous messes. Yet if you asked for a pen, or paper clip or specific piece of paper I would be able to find it in seconds. So it’s no wonder that RSR is the same. I mean, look at my “post” calendar. The entire month of October is full of completed TTT, WoW, reviews, tours, discussions and other random post. To be perfectly honest 90% of the time I’m not really sure how this came to be but.. c’est le vie I suppose. Any who, something I can never….NEVER plan is what I read. I tried a TBR schedule and failed. I tried the TBR jar and failed again. Tried to let my readers pick and didn’t fail as hard. I’m sure your can see the pattern here right?
Obviously planning what I read just doesn’t work for me. I’m a mood reader, plain in simple. And I’m a rebel, which is ridiculous since I’m only rebelling against myself. O__O Seriously! Shelly and I tried making TBR videos and I had all these PLANS but I would only read 1 or 2 from the listen and 4+ that I didn’t even plan on and my mind-set was always “I read what I want so there!”….
Don’t get me wrong, the mood will strike and I’ll fly through a few ARCs that HAVE to be read by a certain point but most of the time I just pick up a random book and jump in. For instance, I’m in this HUGE NA mood lately. I have a ton of beautiful books here I could be reading but I just want to drown in NA feels. I don’t think this is wrong but it seriously destroys any “planned” reading I may have had. Which brings me to today’s questions! Do you have a reading schedule? How do you stick to it? How do you keep it fun if you do have a schedule? As always leave your comments below!
