I hope to cut that time wasted blubbering at your books with a few tips on how to choose your next read.
1. Trust Your Eyes
If a book is constantly catching your eye, chances are your brain is subconsciously choosing that book as your next read.
So, glance up at your shelves right now. Which one is calling to you?
2. TBR Jar
Once you've made your jar, all you have to do is stick your hand in the jar, pull out a slip and bam! Your problem is solved.
Send the books you're deciding between to a friend, family member, or even me! They'll either choose one they've read and loved or not know any of them and most likely pick the one with the prettiest cover.
Either way, your decision is made.
4. Don't Read
Calm down, calm down.
If absolutely nothing is catching your eye, and you ask your friends what to read and their suggestions just aren't appealing to you, don't read.
Create your own thing to read, write.
Write about your day, write about the day you wish you had, write about the old man who lives down the street, write about that trail in the forest you've been too scared to go down, write about what could've happened that time you said no, write about the meaning behind your favorite song.
The possibilities are endless, and you might even have fun.
In the mean time, this'll just be an awkward space that we won't talk about. Okay? Okay.
I hope these tips have helped (:
