7 Comments on How I Choose My Books – Tag

Because this is my off month of reviews, I figured there was no better time than now to give everyone more information about me and my interests. This weeks tag is How I Choose My Books.  

I was unofficially tagged to do this post by Vrinda at The Bookish Human (you really should check out her blog!)

I can’t wait to begin, so here we go!

How I Choose My Books Tag

(All links go to Goodreads)

Find a book on your bookshelves with a blue cover. What made you want to pick up this book?

Echo – Alyson Noel

I picked up this book because it is the second book in the Soul Seekers series and I enjoyed the first book. Although I’ve never read it, I still plan to read it eventually.

Think of a book you didn’t expect to enjoy, but did. Why did you read it in the first place?

The Loose Ends List – Carrie Firestone

I loved the cover design for this book when I picked it up, but it sat on my shelf for awhile. I read it because I said I would on my TBR list post. But I seriously enjoyed it, and can’t wait to read more from this author!

Stand in front of your bookshelf with your eyes closed and pick a book at random. How did you discover this book?

Fingerprints of You – Kristen-Paige Madonia

I randomly walked into B&N one day and the author was doing a book signing. I glanced at the synopsis, but that was it. It is a really good book though!

Pick a book that someone personally recommended to you. What did you think of it?

Heartsick – Chelsea Cain

This book is absolutely amazing! It is a thriller book that is SO well written! I could gush about it all day! Along with the rest of the series! Such a great book! You should check it out!

Pick a book up that you discovered through booktube/bookstagram/book blogs. Did it live up to the hype?

When Dimple Met Rishi – Shadhya Menon

I haven’t read it just yet, but I think it will live up to the hype.

Find a book on your shelves with a one-word title. What drew you to this book?

Identical – Ellen Hopkins

I picked up this book because it was in verse, and I love verse books. I also love Ellen Hopkins books. It still sits on my TBR list sadly.

What book did you discover through a film/TV adaptation?

Nerve – Jeanne Ryan

I saw previews for the movie, before ever seeing the book in the store. I have yet to read/watch either, but I do have them both.

Think of your all-time favorite book(s). When did you read these and why did you pick them up in the first place?

I have a lot of favorite books so I’ll narrow it down to my top 3.

Awakened (House of Night #8) – P.C. & Kristin Cast – I read this in high school because my mom had me read the first book and I was hooked. This is my favorite of the series because some serious action happens in this one.

A Thousand Pieces of You – Claudia Gray – I read this a few years ago. I picked it up because it seemed like a great mix between historical fiction and romance. I was right. I absolutely fell in love with this book!

Archie Sheridan & Gretchen Lowell series – Chelsea Cain – This is probably cheating, but TOO BAD! This 6 book (hopefully more one day) series is amazing! I love the characters and everything about these books! It is probably the only non-young adult fiction book that I have ever loved this much.

The Book Thief – Markus Zusak – I had an assignment in high school to read and discuss one book from a list at the school’s library. This book stood out to me because I enjoy reading historical fiction. Well, I read it and I loved it!

I know I said I was only going to do 3, but the 4th one just slipped onto the list 😉


I don’t really feel like tagging anyone because I wasn’t tagged to do this one. So, anyone that wants to do this tag, I tag you!

How do you choose your books? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I haven’t heard of most of these. The only one I heard of is “When Dimple met Rishi.” I tend to pick books by the seat of my pants usually. I read the synopsis and go “meh, I would read this.” Then I buy it and it sits on my shelf for about a year before I wonder if I am ever going to read it and then it returns to my shelf for another long haul of waiting for me to read it. I have a pattern and I notice it fully. 🙂

    1. I do that a lot of the time too! I buy books and then buy new books and forget about the ones I haven’t read yet 😅

  2. You’ve got an interesting post here.
    While reading I was wondering if I should do this myself and in the end you tagged everyone.Thank you haha.

    Thanks for following my new blog. I just started out. it means a lot to me.

    1. It is a fun post to do! I would love to see your answers!
