There are SO many tags floating around lately (yes I will be doing more!) and when I saw this one @ In a Bookish World I figured it would be the best place to start!
1. Have you ever damaged your own book?
Erhm, yes. Sometimes it’s not intentional, like dropping it in a pool or bathtub. Or say, leaving evidence of my lunch or something. Sometimes… it is.
2. Have you ever damaged a borrowed book?
No? I mean, sometimes I dog-ear pages (I KNOW, it’s bad. I mean, I MAKE BOOKMARKS!) and maybe spilling coffee on it? But I can’t think of anything else. Oh wait, my dog ate a library book once!
3. How long does it take you to read a book?
That depends on a few things. Sometimes a few hours to a week. I usually read 2-4 books at a time, and I will read those throughout the week. If can sit down and read uninterrupted, only a few hours and if a book doesn’t grab my attention within a week I DNF.
4. Books that you haven’t finished?
5. Hyped/popular books that you don’t like?
Ah, here we go. (just 3)
The Fault in our Stars. Okay, so I liked this one but it was just OKAY.
Never Never. Yeah, I really disliked this.
The Start of Me and You. I just don’t connect to her writing. And this book at least, was too fluffy for me.
6. Is there a book that you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading?
Never! Although, my husband might question me if I started reading Fifty Shades since I have sworn it off for years now.
7. How many books do you own?
OY. Around 500? Not including eBooks. I have a hoarding problem.
8. Are you a fast reader or a slow reader?
Fast! I can finish a book within hours.
9. Do you like to buddy read?
Yes and no. I like to, simply because discussing the book whilst reading is fun and I love it! However, since I read fast, it’s hard for me to stop at our stopping point, or put the book down and allow others to catch up, ya know?
10. Do you read better in your head or out loud?
LOL in my head. I am pretty bad at pronouncing names/things. Like, I can say it in my head but when it comes to actually verbalizing it? NOPE. So I hate reading out loud. (this is also why I don’t vlog)
11. If you were only allowed to own one book, what would it be and why?
Well, that’s just rude. One book? Can I cheat and say one device? No? Fine.
Probably Sanctum by Sarah Fine. Amazing characters, world building, and a romance oh so swoony! It’s my favorite book ever, and I have pushed it on people since… 2013.
Thanks for reading! If you want to do the tag – go for it! Also, send me a note so I can read it, too!
