Some time ago I was inspired by BookTuber Wish Fulfillment to try a new way to choose what to read next. I never know what to read next, and choosing a book sometimes actually keeps me from reading. I just don’t know what to choose so I keep putting it off. Anyway, I really liked her idea of wrapping up her books in gift wrapping paper, different papers for different genres, and then asking people to choose a shelf number and book number for her to read. That sounds like a lot of fun, it’s a bit like “a date with a book” and unwrapping things is always so much fun.
I’m sorry I don’t have any pictures to show, but I’m just too tired. I’ve spent the last two days just wrapping up my books. I could wait to make this post and take pictures, but I want to post it now, while I’m excited about it.
I used 5 different wrapping papers to divide my books:
Blue wrapping paper = Books I’m most excited about
Pink wrapping paper = Books I’m most excited about (I read out of blue paper so I used pink)
Flower wrapping paper = Contemporary and Non-fiction
Black wrapping paper = Series
Donuts wrapping paper = everything else
And I divided them into 4 shelves
Shelf 1 has 37 books
Shelf 2 has 67 books
Shelf 3 has 36 books
and Shelf 4 has 22 books
Now, here comes the fun part! You can decide what I read next!
Please choose a shelf number and a book number. For example, shelf 2- book 5.
Then I grab the book you chose for me, do a little unwrapping video and show you what I got!
Doesn’t that sound fun?! I think it sounds awesome!!
Please choose a book for me to read in the comments!! I think I will unwrap 5 at a time, read those, then ask you to please choose some more.
Here is Sylwia’s wrapping video, please check it out! Also, please check out her mini reviews. Even though I think our tastes in books are very different I really enjoy listening to her reviews and opinions. She was my very first BookTuber, too!
And this is her latest book unwrapping video.
Thank you for helping me choose!
