– Let’s Talk Bookish – New Releases

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly bookish meme created by Rukky @ Eternity Books and is hosted by Aria @BookNookBits. Each Friday, there is a discussion topic for bloggers to write about, this week we will be discussing…



DO YOU KEEP UP WITH NEW RELEASES? 


SUGGESTED BY PIPPIN @ THE PIGEON



Prompts: How current is your reading? Do you tend to read recently published books or pick from the publishing backlog, and why? Is there any particular merit to keeping up with current releases, or is it all hype? How has book blogging changed your habits on this front? And, in the future, are you thinking you want your reading to shift either way? 

How current is your reading? Do you tend to read recently published books or pick from the publishing backlog, and why? The majority of my reading is very current and that’s because it’s a combination of arc and beta reads. By their very nature, these are upcoming or new releases! I do have plans to reduce the number of arcs I keep saying yes to, as I have a huge backlist of books to read on my kindle. However, on the few occasions I do get to choose freely then most of the time I will pick an older book as part of my “read your TBR list” challenge!


Is there any particular merit to keeping up with current releases, or is it all hype? To be honest I haven’t come across all that much hype regarding the need to blog about new releases. I see a mix of book reviews on the blogs I follow and whilst some choose mainly to focus on new releases, just as many feature books both old and new. How has book blogging changed your habits on this front? It hasn’t, mainly because I have no interest in being a big player in the blogging world.



In the future, are you thinking you want your reading to shift either way?  I do want to clear more of my TBR list, which consists of purchased books that I still haven’t read. There are also a few series I have started but not finished that are also on the list. To achieve this goal I am really, really, REALLY going to have to learn to say “no” when someone offers me the opportunity to read an arc. It’s definitely a work in progress.
