Reader Focus – 10 Questions based on our TBR lists – Fabi’s List:

in Book Recommendations

bev was curious and decided to start a quiz a few weeks ago (and she played her own quiz, so here are her answers in case you missed ‘em). The answers were so fun, and I know we ALL can relate to these in one way or another. What’s fun about ‘em, is it forces us to reconsider our TBR lists, and re-introduces us (or REMINDS us) of highly recommended books that are already on it. Or gives us insight as to what our fellow readers like to read, and how they “choose”.

Here are the questions:

  1. Book(s) you can’t believe you haven’t read yet?
  2. Book(s) that the cover grabs your attention?
  3. Book(s) from buzz/review?
  4. Book(s) from book buddy book talk?
  5. Book(s) you are hesitant to read?
  6. Book(s) in part because the author makes you feel you are in that locale?
  7. Book(s) you really hope is what you think it is going to be?
  8. Book(s) that randomly pop into your head and you think yes I need to read that?
  9. If your weekend read had to come from this list what 1 or 3 would they be?
  10. Last one. Should Maryse put her tbr away and watch the first episode of Sherlock and blog it?
In fact, here are Fabi’s answers! ;)

Fabi’s Answers:

“Those are way too questions above. I could answer some but others would require way too much work. lol I’ll try. Question answers coming up next. Warning…it’s loooooooong. Sheesh Bev. lol”

1. Book(s) you can’t believe you haven’t read yet? Way too many to list. A prime example being Radiance (Wraith Kings Book 1) which I finally read and just finished.

2. Book(s) that the cover grabs your attention? In general, any cover with the color emerald green immediately snags my eye. Also any cover with a depiction of the DNA strand makes me pause and read the blurb. In particular, there is one book on my carousel that catches my eye every time I open Kindle. It’s Eternal Eden (Eden Trilogy Book 1) by Nicole Williams

3. Book(s) from buzz/review? Almost every day I add a “want to read book” based on reviews. Some people read the news with their morning coffee. I read book reviews. One or two dozen a day.

4. Book(s) from book buddy book talk? I tend to read books rec’d on Maryse’s book blog.  :-)

5. Book(s) you are hesitant to read? Amy’s heartbreaking favorites and Maryse’s scary thrillers. I’m such a chicken. :-/

6. Book(s) in part because the author makes you feel you are in that locale? No idea, other than sci-fi when I’m on a space ship or a cool as shit planet.

7. Book(s) you really hope is what you think it is going to be? Not to many of these. At least I can’t think of any. I go into books with closed eyes and an open mind.

8. Book(s) that randomly pop into your head and you think yes I need to read that? There’s lots of these every day. Most recently, The Girl With All the Gifts

9. If your weekend read had to come from this list what 1 or 3 would they be? :-/ I didn’t pick a single one from this list for my weekend read. I scrolled and scrolled through my tbr. Opened Altered by Marnee Blake then switched to my iPad so my phone could charge and as I was looking for Altered I stopped on Mnevermind 1: The Persistence of Memory, opened it and started reading. It’s great so far. But I am so random in my reading. There’s no telling what I’ll read next in spite of the dozens of lists I keep to get books in some sort of order.

10. Last one. Should Maryse put her tbr away and watch the first episode of Sherlock and blog it? Maryse may have to. Although, if it were me, I’d turn the show on and read a book while it played.  ;-)

Alright Fabi, did you read during Sherlock? Lol.
I have The Girl with All The Gifts sitting on my Kindle too. Maybe we should br it sometime this summer.
Radiance is great, I still need to read the sequel. Off to see what the other ones are.

Oooooh guys, The Girl With All the Gifts was good. :D Messed up, but good.

Amy May 28, 2016 at 9:19 PM

No ugly crying or heartbreak either…promise. ;)

I did not read while watching Sherlock. :-) I was too fascinated hearing his explanations. The gorgeous accent didn’t hurt either. I’ve already watched two episodes. Each is basically a movie since they last about 90 minutes each. Another great rec Bev.

I’ll br The Girl with all the Gifts with you. Just tell me when.

Thanks Amy. Also thanks for clarifying. I remember now you mentioning when you read it.

Amy May 29, 2016 at 9:11 AM

Fabi, I went in pretty blind so at first I was all, “what the heck is going on??” Then I realized exactly WHAT was going on, and ohhh man. Messed. Up.

Yes, I love his mind palace. And his voice.
