Today’s question:
When you’re stuck for a book to read next, what do you do?

My response:
I’m reading this question with 2 different slants, probably because my brain has not received enough caffeine yet,  so will answer both.

1.  Does it mean you have finished a book and don’t have another one on deck?  No other book within your grasp?  For me, that has not been the case since I started blogging/reviewing.  I have too many books that are staring at me from my requested review pile so I always have a book that I can choose from, from the moment I finish the last page of my current read.

2.  Or does it mean one is not sure what the next book tbr  is.    Even with all the books that I do have to read, sometimes it depends totally on my mood.  Usually I know what the next read will be because of commitments, but sometimes I’m just not in the mood for that particular book.  And I have found that if I pick up a book and really not in the mood for it, it will be a struggle to read, takes me much longer to finish it and sometimes, will even put me in a mini slump.  My mood definitely depends on what I should read next.

What about you?  How would you answer this question?  And what do you do if you are “stuck” for a book?

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.

According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

  1. Both of your answers are great!

  2. The 4 new books you received are all captivating particularly Twelve Months by Steven Manchester and Sweat by Mark Gilleo

    Love your answers to the question about what you do when you don’t have a next book lined up. My answers would have been similar to yours. I’m never without a next book…it’s more like I usually have too many next book!
    And what I read at a given time most often depends on my mood!

  3. Here lately it seems like I pick a book because I’ll be seeing the author soon. I’m never lacking for choices either! lol

  4. This month I am going to try and read some of my summer books that I’ve had on my bookshelves for a year or two. I find I like reading different genres in summer than I do in winter. Go figure…

  5. India’s Summer and Twelve Months look good. Have a great week, a fun 4th and happy reading, Cheryl!

  6. I totally agree with your answers. I have so many books waiting to be read for review or blog tour commitments and that’s usually how I decide what to read. But, I’m really a very moody reader!

  7. India’s Summer and Twelve Months look really good!
