The Ultimate Book Tag

Blank Etsy Shop Icon (8)

Happy Monday Book Worms! I found this book tag on Hunida’s blog! It has been some time since the last time I did a book tag, this one was fun to do and I enjoyed answering these questions.

Do you get sick while reading in the car?

No never! But I’m usually the one that has to drive anyways.

Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?

There are some good ones out there but one that comes to mind would be Gregory Maguire. I love how detailed he is when writing his stories.

Harry Potter Series or Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.

I never read books from both sides, however, I have seen the movies and I’m gonna go with the Harry Potter stories.

  • Harry Potter’s story is original and something you have not heard from another.
  • More intense and unique
  • Fell in love from the beginning of the story to the very end (In Twilight I hate the beginning but love the ending)

Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books…)?

I don’t carry a book bag, used to when I was in school. When I leave the house I just put my book in a book sleeve and carry it or if it fits in my purse.

Do you smell your books?

Yes, I’m guilty of doing this every day! I love the smell of fresh print paper.

Books with or without little illustrations?

I don’t have a preference for this, so either way, I’m fine with it.

What book did you love while reading but, discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?

I don’t ever re-read books. (Unless its the Warrior series)

Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!

The only thing that comes to mind was when I was in 5th grade this boy in my class threw a textbook from the back of the classroom to the front almost hitting the teacher, she jumped and turned around so quickly. I’m guilty of laughing out loud about it. The teacher knew who was responsible.

What is the thinnest book on your shelf?

Learning To Crochet for left-handers.

What is the thickest book on your shelf?

Star Wars The Han Solo Trilogy.

Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?

I write just about every day, and I do see myself as an author one day.

When did you get into reading?

At a very young age. It was the number one thing I would do before bed.

What is your favorite classic book?

Lord Of The Flies by William Golding

In school was your best subject Language Arts/English?

It was definitely English!

If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated…what would you do?

I would keep it and put it on my bookshelf.

What is a lesser-known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games?

Nothing really comes to mind. Both those book series are original and very good. For The Hunger Games I would say Lord Of The Flies is a little and I mean very little similar to it but not really.

What is your favorite word?

Cake.

Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?

Nerd, reading books, playing video games, computer games once in a while is cool.

Vampires or Fairies? Why?

Fairies, attitude, glitter, and small creatures who are adorable.

Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

Angels, because they are so holy! Also, they are a good lookout for the ones on Earth still.

Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

Werewolves, I have always loved werewolf stories! I’m so fascinated with them that I used to be obsessed with reading any book about them. I really don’t have a main reason why.

Zombies or Vampires?

Vampires, Well you didn’t give me much a choice and I was never a fan of zombies.

Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?

All about the forbidden love! Those are the best stories.

AND FINALLY: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?

It really depends here for me but I tend to go for the action-packed with few love scenes in the story, a good example would be Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.

If you made it this far thank you for reading, Happy Reading!

Is there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading?

As an adult, I will tell anyone who asked what I was reading but when I was a child growing up my favorite book series were the Warriors by Erin Hunter and I used to hide my book from my classmates thinking they would make fun of me for reading, silly thing to do.

I have no clue but the words of my man he would say “Too many!”

I’m in between, I’m an average reader however if the book has a lot of details and I’m really into the book I will take my time and read slow.

The Currently Reading Book Tag

Untitled.jpg

Found this lovely Book Tag on Reader Voracious Book Blog!

Another day another glory! Today is just a wonderful day to write, it’s been raining all day with thunder and lightning! All this rain has put me into a writing mood so here is a Book Tag that’s been overdue on my book blog. Enjoy!

HOW MANY BOOKS DO YOU USUALLY READ AT ONCE?

Two! Always two. I have my physical copy on hand which I call my current read and on my Nook I have my Netgalley story that I either been approved of to read or volunteer to read.

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHEN TO SWITCH BETWEEN MULTIPLE READS?

I kinda just go with the flow and how I feel. I tend to have a habit of focusing on the story that has the least pages to finish first rather then the book with the most pages however if a book is really good and most talked about than I tend to favor one read the most thru out the day and my second read later on in the evening with least amount of time reading. It really just all depends on how I manage to switch between my reads depending more on the story.

DO YOU EVER SWITCH BOOKMARKS PARTWAY THROUGH A BOOK?

No, Never! When it comes to my next read I always select a bookmark that I think would go with the story. (I have a small bookmark collection)

WHERE DO YOU KEEP THE BOOK(S) YOU’RE CURRENTLY READING?

Right on my desk, however, there are times where I have fallen asleep with my book in my hands but for the most part, I always keep my physical copy on my desk right next to my Nook and diary and journal!

WHAT TIME OF DAY DO YOU READ THE MOST?

Since I am pregnant I have all the time in the world to read. Right now when I wake up I read for 20 minutes then go eat. I read in the late afternoon then nap time. I read in the evening for bath time and then later at night before bedtime. So basically it’s reading all day for me unless its one of those days were I need “Fresh Time” to do other hobbies and catch up with other stuff I enjoy.

HOW LONG DO YOU TYPICALLY READ IN ONE SESSION?

Always 1 hour to 3 hours.

DO YOU READ HARDBACKS WITH THE DUST JACKET OFF?

Yes! All the time. And if you’re wondering why…I just do, I don’t really have a reason why I take it off.

WHAT POSITION DO YOU MAINLY USE TO READ?

Depends where I am located. I have three spots in my house where I read so first would be my bed so that means I am on my left side with every single pillow in the house next to me. The second location is the couch, I have movie theater couches so, therefore, I have my feet kicked up and laying back with one pillow behind me. My third reading spot is on the porch so I am just relaxing on my porch chair enjoying the weather when I am out there.

DO YOU TAKE YOUR CURRENT READ WITH YOU EVERYWHERE YOU GO?

What a silly question! Of course, I do! I take the physical copy more than my Nook.  I never know when or what is going to happen when I’m out in about especially now that I’m going to doctor visits and they have me wait for seriously forever I have to have a book with me no matter what when I leave my house. I’m always prepared.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU UPDATE YOUR GOODREADS READING PROGRESS?

Every night before bed. I always try to make it my goal to update my progress and pretty good at making sure I keep up with it.

Thanks for catching up with me on this fun Book Tag! I tag every Book Blogger out there who is interested in participating in this Tag.

I Should Have Read That Book Tag

book

Found this awesome Book Tag on Read With Abi

I have not done a Book Tag this whole year and been waiting for the right time to do so. I’m not going to waste any more time and just get right to it.

A BOOK THAT A FRIEND IS ALWAYS TELLING YOU TO READ

Unfortunately, I don’t have one single friend that reads. I’m that friend that recommends books but they never listen to me and rather play video games.

A BOOK THAT’S BEEN ON YOUR TBR FOREVER, YET YOU STILL HAVENT PICKED IT UP

51eaZ1mO9ML._SX321_BO1,204,203,200_

That would be this lovely gem! I really want to read Circe! It’s been on my TBR list for a very long time, I’ll get to it soon…very soon!

A BOOK IN A SERIES YOU STARTED BUT HAVENT GOTTEN ROUND TO FINISHING YET

fgfgg

That would be Warriors by Erin Hunter. I grew up reading these and unfortunately, I never finished the whole series plus I have to recollect the series on top of that too. I absolutely love these books to this very day and with all these other books coming out I tend to get distracted but I am determined to finish the series.

A CLASSIC YOU’VE ALWAYS LIKED THE SOUND OF, BUT NEVER ACTUALLY READ

To Kill A Mockingbird By Harper Lee, a classic that seems everyone has read but me.

A POPULAR BOOK IT SEEMS EVERYONE BUT YOU HAS READ 

9780008179984

Nevernight By Jay Kristoff! I see this book everywhere! It’s always on Bookstagram and book reviews on book blogs. Looks interesting and I might get my hands on this to add it to my TBR list.

A BOOK THAT INSPIRED A FILM/TV ADAPTION THAT YOU LOVE BUT JUST HAVEN’T READ YET 

Harry Potter! That’s right I have never read Harry Potter but I love the movies. The thing is I am someone who has to read the book first then watch the movie. When the first movie came out my mother had taken me to see the movie and from there on I just watch the movies rather than read the books. I can’t really read the book if I already know what is going to happen or have some knowledge of the story, I like to be surprised and not knowing what’s going to happen because if a new book that I been wanting comes out then I’m going to end up putting the book down and never finished it…you know. So since I missed out on Harry Potter I made sure to read books first then movies!

A BOOK YOU SEE ALL OVER INSTAGRAM  BOOKSTAGRAM BUT HAVENT PICKED UP

91AR3OPVaCL.jpg

Oh yeah, I see this book all over the place right now, it looks and sounds like my type of book. I almost purchased the book today at Target but decided to wait a bit longer.

Happy Reading all! Doing this Book Blog makes me want to read more and more. I feel like I am missing out on some good books here. Let me know what you all think and everyone who reads this is tagged.

Happy Reading!
