Today is one of those days where I’m feeling very lazy, and all I want to do is sit and read. It took a long while for me to motivate myself to write this post. So I decided to do a book tag – or THE book tag – since I have loads of them waiting in my drafts.
Hopefully after writing this up, I can motivate myself to take a review photo and write up tomorrow’s review. Hopefully.
Anyway, I was tagged by Naomi @ Escpae From Realities quite a while ago, so here are my answers…finally!
Let’s do this!
1. Do I have a certain place to read? Where is it?
I always read in my bed. As I’ve said before, I’m one of those people that is always cold, so I just want my duvet all the time.
2. Do you eat or drink while reading?
Sometimes I do. I’m more likely to eat than drink. And if I do eat, it’s usually chocolate.
3. Do you read one book or several books at a time?
Just the one book at a time. This only changes if I’m reading a huge book Like Outlander, because one evening I’ll read a graphic novel to make up for lost time and give myself a tiny break. But even then, there will only be two books on my “currently reading” shelf for about an hour or so, since it doesn’t take long to read a graphic novel.
4. Do you write in books?
Nope. The only time I have ever done so was when I was taking an English Literature course last year, and I ran out of post-it notes. I just have these two books on my shelf covered in writing. But now, I use little post-it tabs if I want to remember a quote, but that’s about it.
5. What was the worst movie adaptation of a book?
I don’t really have an answer for this. I’ll go with Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief, because when you compare the book to the movie…it’s just terrible. BUT I do actually like that film so…maybe that’s just because I like the cast though.
6. What is the book you’re the most embarrassed to have never read?
None really. I don’t get embarrassed about not reading certain books. Although at the moment I really feel like I NEED to read Red Queen, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and Me Before You.
7. Your ‘what the heck’ moment from a book.
The entire last chapter and epilogue in The Sleeping Prince. Oh lord almighty I was so shocked. My thoughts weren’t functioning, there was just “OH MY GOD WHAT ON EARTH HOW DARE-WAIT WHAT? OH MY DAYS!” on loop.
8. What is the one book you regret you read?
None. I never regret reading a book, even if I hated it. I mean, if you didn’t read bad books, you’d have no idea just how good they can be in comparison, right?
9. Best strong female leader?
AELIN GALATHYNIUS. From the Throne of Glass series. More in Queen of Shadows, specifically.
10. Book that changed your life?
The Harry Potter series, for sure. It has influenced my life so much. I feel like there’s other books that have really stuck with me too, such as The Book Thief, Pride and Prejudice, and the Throne of Glass series. To be fair though, I think every book changes some part of me in a small way 🙂
So there we have it!
Hope you guys enjoyed reading through this! Now you know a couple more things about me when it comes to how I read.
Let me know in the comments if you agree with any of my answers! I’d love to find out 😀
