Is It Important To Know The Book Genre? ft. Fanna @Fannatality

What is one of the first things you do when you pick up a book?

Me? I personally try to figure out the genre, even before I read the blurb so that I can tell what kind of a book it is going to be.

But not everyone is like that. Many people don’t mind knowing the genre or even the blurb before reading the book or other misinterpret the genre on a whole.

I mean by reading the title and the fact that I’ve used the word ‘genre’ about five times you already know what this post is going to be about. Today we’ll be discussing whether or not it is important to know the genre of a book before you go off reading it.

Honestly I was feeling a little lonely here, talking all by myself so I invited my lovely friend and fellow book blogger Fanna @Fannatality to give me some nice company and also provide further perspective and dimensions to the discussion 🙂

Is Unorganisation The Bane Of Our Existence?

Hello everyone! It’s day three of me being a host for Bookending Spring and I’m clutching for dear life because I don’t want to let go. I like this too much! Ahem, I clearly need help

Today’s topic is one that we can hold an intense discussion on and whatever your stance may be, remember both organisation and unorganisation is important in life and people leaning to either of the two sides are perfectly valid 🙂

TODAY’S BOOKENDING SPRING PROMPT

Unorganisation: The Bane of our Existence…Or Not

So since the age of dinosaurs organisation has been held at the highest level with the most revered dinos planning out and sorting the different kinds of humans to eat.

Okay, maybe that’s not true.

But still, since the longest of times organisation has been seen as a quality to be admired and encouraged in children, students, adults and the aged alike. Organised individuals command respect and are considered superior and more successful whereas unorganised people are mocked and taunted or simply asked to mend their ways or else perish. Too much of an ego boost?

Are ARCs Overrated?

Earlier you would find booknerds with broken backs and an unending stack of their to-be-read books that they carry with them, which would ultimately result in their death. As if that wasn’t enough there is an added weight of ARCs that we run after like crazy and then promptly stash on our TBR piles.

Am I the only one who thinks that ARCs or Advanced Reading Copies are overrated?

Don’t start yelling or throwing tomatoes at me just yet! Let’s have a healthy discussion on ARCs and their worth.

Good Books: Savor or Gobble Them?

And I’m back to host another discussion on a topic I’ve recently been thinking a lot about.

So you’ve bought a book that you know is going to totally sweep you off your feet or maybe you just started it and absolutely know that this is going to destroy you(in good ways)

Now the question is do you take your sweet time and let every pore of your body absorb its contents or do you eagerly take it all in without even glancing at the clock?

Meaning do you savor the good books or gobble them down?
