The Official Schedule
How do you determine what books you’re going to read next?
I’m usually reading three books at any given time:
- I’m always doing some kind of buddy read with my boyfriend these days. We usually just decide on whatever jumps out at us from either our shelves or my Kindle.
- I try to always have an ARC going in the background. I’m usually not actively reading it, but I’ll pick it up and read a chapter or two when I have free time. I read whichever ARC has the most imminent release date. If there aren’t any coming out particularly soon, I’ll go with the one that’s most overdue.
- When it comes to audiobooks that I listen to at work, it’s anybody’s guess. I place a lot of holds, so I get surprised with them showing up all the time. When I get down to one or two checked out, I’ll usually scroll through Overdrive and see if anything from my TBR is currently available on audio. If not, I just pick something that sounds fun.
What ARC would you wait hours in line for?
What bookish merch/pre-order incentives/etc. is your favorite?
I like things I can use, like pens and notebooks and bookmarks. Once I got fuzzy socks and that was nice too.
What topic would you love to see some of your favorite authors talk about?
As someone who loves to read but cannot write, I would love to hear my favorite authors talk about their process. Where do their ideas come from? How do they create such real characters? How do they write dialogue that sounds like an actual conversation? I just think it’s so incredible that anybody can pull an entire universe out of their mind and write it down in a way that other people can feel like they’re experiencing it firsthand.
Yallfest, Yallwest, BookCon/BookExpo, YALC, Etc.
What book festival/con would you go to if you had the choice?
I think BookExpo would be fun. I feel like it’s the less crazy, more civilized, less money grabby older sibling of BookCon.
Please feel free to do this tag even if I didn’t tag you directly! I’d love to see your answers! Which authors would you like to meet? Which book festival would you most like to attend? Let’s talk in the comments!
