Hi friends, happy Wednesday! How are you all doing? I hope you’re having a good week so far.
Today’s tags day, and I will be answering some reading questions with the Reader Confession Tag – thanks to the lovely Beth @ Reading Every Night ! If you don’t know her or her blog, please please check it out, it and she deserves all the award for being such a wonderful blogger, and a fantastic friend.
Have you ever damaged a book?
Depends on what you’re looking for when you say “damaged”. Have I ever dropped a book in the bath and let it down? NO NO NO NO. Have I ever accidentally sat on the latest travel guide I bought? Erm…Sorry. I won’t be commenting at this time.
Have you ever damaged a borrowed book?
I don’t think so – not that I can remember of. I barely ever borrow books because my library doesn’t have books in English and I don’t have friends reading the same books as I do.
How long does it take you to read a book?
It depends on the length of the book, but usually I read a book per week.
Books that you haven’t finished?
I don’t really like to DNF books so I really can’t remember a book I started and haven’t finished, or at least lately. There are just soooo many books to read, I try and pick up books I know I’ll enjoy at least a little bit.
Hyped/ Popular books you didn’t like?
I could go with the obvious here and talk about Red Queen, which is a kind of controversial book here in the bookish community. Some people loved it, others just like me found it just okay / or really, really bad – the second book only reinforced that feeling. Though I heard good things about King’s Cage….
So I’m going to go with the less obvious here, and before I mention the title let me just say that did not like is a strong expression I will replace here with “did not enjoy as much as I could”, and it would be…The Knife of Never Letting Go. I had a bit of a hard time connecting with the story and the writing style, but I might still give the rest of the series a try because I feel like I am missing out on something.
Is there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading?
Hm, I don’t think I have a book I was ashamed of reading?
How many books do you own?
I don’t think I can count haha. I have two full bookshelves in my room plus about 50 books or more divided between my other shelves and furniture and the big TBR my sister has yet to get through. I don’t know how many, but I know I shouldn’t get more books. Or I should get a bigger room. Or a bed made out of books.
Are you a fast reader or a slow reader?
I think I’m an average reader? I don’t know, define, fast? I can’t read one book per day (unless I’m not at work and can allow myself to read all day which doesn’t ever happen) so I’m definitely not that fast haha.
Do you like to buddy read?
Buddy-reading is a lot of fun, even if I don’t do it often I always have a great time fangirling with others about the book we are currently reading.
Do you read better in your head or out loud?
Now that one’s obvious…In my head, since out loud I get this French accent I can’t get rid of haha.
If you were only allowed to own one book, what would it be and why?
What kind of CRUEL question is that?! I couldn’t ever choose just one book. I’d probably have to go with my favorite, Looking for Alaska (John Green), but, erm…NO. I can’t have just one book.
I’m not tagging anyone because I’m a tiny bit lazy, but if you want to do this, then I’m tagging YOU!
