My Books Do Spark Joy, Marie

  1. I could not agree more. I have heard so many people talking about Marie’s three book theory and can say with great certainty that it is not for me!
    My to-be-read pile is growing and growing, and I’m struggling to get through it but I continue to buy more because I’d just hate to walk to my bookcase and find that I had nothing lined up to read next!

    1. Exactly! And, especially in the summer, I tend to stay up late reading on weekends. And there’s nothing better than finishing a great book and immediately diving into another one. Plus, I have to be in the mood to read certain kinds of books. Never know when the mood is going to strike, so best to have it on hand, just in case.


      1. Yes, me too. I love getting into a book and then not being able to stop reading – this was me last night!
        I agree about being in a particular mood. Once I’ve read about a few thrillers/crime books, I often feel like I need to go for something lighter for a change. It’s great to have a range so you can grab and go (I say this, but it often takes me ages to choose which to read next!).

      2. Oh man, I’m the same way! And for me, I have to be in the right mood for romance, otherwise I am too aware of how similar they all are (oh, now she’s going to meet some handsome man who she’s initially going to hate, they’re going to end up forced together, and then they’ll fall madly in love but he’ll leave because he thinks its better for her, etc.).
        What book kept you up last night? Anything good?


      3. Yes, definitely! Once you’ve read a few of the same genre, one after the other, they often begin to blur and become a bit predictable!
        It was the one in the post I’ve just done: Then She Was Gone – Lisa Jewell. It was awesome!
