Book Reader Problems Tag

Untitled

Happy Monday everyone. A new day another chapter. Been sewing all day and decided to take a break and post another fun tag for today. I found this lovely Book Tag on Book Filled Brain

Let’s begin this tag!

YOU HAVE 20,000 BOOKS ON YOUR TBR, HOW IN THE WORLD DO YOU DECIDE WHAT TO READ NEXT?

It depends on my mood. If I’m feeling like I need a fantasy story or a crazy twisted dark story or even just a chilled relax story. It all depends how I’m feeling..sometimes. Other times if the book has been on the TBR list for a long time then I’ll start reading it.

YOU’RE HALFWAY THROUGH A BOOK AND YOU’RE JUST NOT LOVING IT. DO YOU PUT IT DOWN OR ARE YOU COMMITTED? 

I have never DNF a book before. I’m always committed, I mean I have times, where I’m just thinking to myself or out loud too, where I say I’m not going to finish the book but I always do cause I just want to have hopes that at least in the end it could get better?

THE END OF THE YEAR IS COMING UP AND YOU ARE BEHIND ON YOUR READING CHALLENGE, DO YOU TRY AND CATCH UP? AND IF SO HOW?

Yes and no. Yes, I want to complete my challenge goal but if I’m behind a whole lot then I don’t want to force myself to read more and make myself feel forced to read just for a challenge, takes the fun of reading away for me.

THE COVER OF A SERIES YOU LOVE DO NOT MATCH. HOW DO YOU COPE?

I have no choice but to get over it I guess. But I do believe covers are a huge thing, at least for me.

EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER LOVES A BOOK THAT YOU DO NOT. WHO DO YOU BOND WITH OVER YOUR SHARED FEELINGS?

To the Book Community! Right here on my blog. Someone usually agrees with me here.

YOURE READING A BOOK IN PUBLIC AND YOU START CRYING, HOW DO YOU DEAL?

I don’t read in public! There is a huge reason for it. I can not stand people even more so when I read. There is always someone around that is either on their phones talking around me, someone chewing with their mouths open, kids yelling or crying, or someone staring at me like I’m crazy for holding a book in my hand rather than looking down at my cell phone. The only place I read that is public is my favorite reading cafe but that is it. Nowhere else. Unless I’m on a plane or at the DMV. Also, I will hold back the tears if it was to happen. No one wants to see me cry, I don’t want to see myself cry or anyone cry for that matter.

THE SEQUEL TO A BOOK YOU LOVE JUST CAME OUT BUT YOUVE FORGOTTEN A LOT OF WHAT HAPPENS. ARE YOU GOING TO REREAD IT?

Nope. I’m going to look back at my book reviews here on my blog to freshen up my memory. Plus if I’m reading the sequel that means I like the first book which means I won’t forget what happens.

YOU DONT WANT ANYONE BORROWING YOUR BOOKS, HOW DO YOU POLITELY SAY NO WHEN SOMEONE ASK?

My bestie is the only one that comes over and when she does ask, I say no! Just no or NO WAY! She’s messy and forgets everything and loses everything. It’s okay though because she is my best friend and she knows this, I still love her but my books are my everything.

My bestie to the left who is the computer geek & Me as the book geek. Also, she designed some of my labels for my Bookish Candles!

YOU HAVE PICKED UP AND PUT DOWN 5 BOOKS IN THE LAST MONTH. HOW DO YOU GET OVER THIS READING SLUMP?

I do it by trying to pick up another amazing read to get myself going, If I stay in this slump mode then I’ll never read again.

THERE ARE SO MANY BOOKS COMING OUT THAT YOU ARE DYING TO READ, HOW MANY DO YOU END UP BUYING?

Once a month towards the end of the last week I go on a huge book haul at my local Barnes And Noble (Going tomorrow!) I tend to get anything between 10-20 books. Serious problem? I know my boyfriend tells me all the time.

AFTER YOU PURCHASE ALL THE BOOKS YOU ARE DYING TO READ, HOW LONG DO THEY SIT ON YOUR SHELVES BEFORE YOU GET TO THEM?

Around 6 months to a year, I would say. Depending on what book I purchased. So for example when Wicked King by Holly Black comes out next year I’m automatically going to start reading, no waiting. For others like the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard they are still on my TBR list and it’s been a few months since I purchased the series.

Well, that is all for now. Hope you enjoy my answers and if you wanna chat you know what to do. At the meantime, I’m gonna get back to sewing for a bit before I get into my current read. TTFN.

Since I joined the book blog community all these wonderful Book Tags are just so addicting and fun and well I wanted to create one as well. I have so many ideas for some and the first one I wanted to do was something I really loved with some magic into it and there’s nothing more magical then Peter Pan. My all time favorite story growing up. I did look some Peter Pan Book Tags and found one on Alessia’s Shit List  BookTube Channel.

I did my own twist to it and created the Take Me To Neverland Book Tag and added some Fairy Dust to it to make it magical. I don’t know if there is a Neverland Book Tag and if there is one please let me know. Thank You.

NANA-  DO YOU HAVE A SPIRIT ANIMAL?

Yes I do! It’s a Red Fox.

TIGER LILY –  WHO’S YOUR FAVORITE FICTIONAL FEMALE IN A BOOK?

Right now for this year I now have two favorites my first one would be Enne Salta from Ace Of Shades By Amanda Foody seeing the characters growth from the beginning to finding out who she truly is was a amazing character growth for me. Jude from The Cruel Prince By Holly Black just because she is all human and kicking butt!

MERMAID LAGOON – WHO’S YOUR FICTIONAL CHARACTER FROM A BOOK THAT YOU JUST WANT TO DROWN?

Right now Prince Cardan from The Cruel Prince By Holly Black. He has to many secrets and it seems like he might give Jude a very hard time in the next book, Which he already was in the first book. I need The Wicked King to come out asap please.

FAIRY DUST –  WHAT’S YOUR ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK?

Warriors By Erin Hunter, The series that got me into reading more and finding really amazing stories.

20 Questions Book Tag

Untitled

Howdy Bookworms! Here is yet another Book Tag for you. Thank you Flowers In the Brain for tagging me in this lovely Book Tag. Once said and will say it again, Bookworms scouts honor to tell the truth and nothing but the truth. Here we go!

  1. HOW MANY BOOKS IS TOO MANY BOOKS IN A BOOK SERIES?

It would depend on the author for me. If the story is one big adventure and so many characters to get to know and character growth and the writing is well put together in detail then the sky is the limit for me.

2.  HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT CLIFFHANGERS?

Cliffhangers can be good. Sometimes. Hmm.

 

3. HARD COPY OR PAPERBACK?

I’m all in for the hardcovers and here is why. I love how they look on my bookshelf’s and I feel all sorts of good/comfy vibes holding a hardcover book unless I’m reading more then two hours then my wrists start to get sore.

4. FAVORITE BOOK?

  I have a lot of faves, but so far for 2018 will have to be Heartless! WAIT! Ace Of Shades! NO WAIT! The Cruel Prince! Yes that’s the one.

5. LEAST FAVORITE BOOK?

For 2018 and maybe for all books so far, which takes a lot for me to not like a book would have to be Emergency Contact By Mary H. K. Choi. I was expecting so much more I guess.

6. LOVE TRIANGLES? YES OR NO?

I’m gonna go right in the middle and say sometimes. If the author can pull it off nicely and make some juicy, dangerous, creative, and twisted love triangle then I’m all in.

7. THE MOST RECENT BOOK YOU JUST COULDN’T FINISHED?

None so far and I hope to keep it that way. No fun when you have to put a book down.

8. BOOK YOU’RE CURRENTLY READING?

Doing more tags and reading them on other post I noticed this is the main question on all Book Tags. I mean of course it’s going to be asked but when doing tags we should just automatically put are current read in are post before we begin the questions, kinda like when you go to a meeting and you introduce your self! “Hi my name is and I’m here for….” It could be a introduction for us Bookworms..Something like this “My current read Hocus Pocus & The All New Sequel By A. W. Jantha” Hmm Yes? No? Maybe? I don’t know just thinking out loud.

9. LAST BOOK YOU RECOMMENDED TO SOMEONE?

The Cruel Prince By Holly Black to a new friend I made at the Barnes And Noble Book Club last month.

10. OLDEST BOOK YOU READ? 

Hmmm does a Dictionary count? If not Anything Can Happen By George Papashvily published in the 40’s.

11. NEWEST BOOK YOU’VE READ?

My current read Hocus Pocus & The All New Sequel By A. W. Jantha any how it’s not a completed read yet but it will be 🙂

12. FAVORITE AUTHOR?

Right now Marissa Meyer!

 

13. BUYING BOOKS?

All day everyday baby!

14. A BOOK YOU DISLIKE THAT EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO LOVE?

Nope, unless Emergency Contact By Mary H. K. Choi but I think most others would agree!?

15. BOOKMARKS OR DOG EARRINGS?

Bookmarks all the way!

16. A BOOK YOU CAN REREAD? 

Warriors By Erin Hunter. The whole series and every book I want to reread them!

17. CAN YOU READ WHILE LISTENING TO MUSIC?

Only if its Lofi! But I prefer absolute silence.

 

18. ONE POV OR MULTIPLE POVS?

Multiple POVs! Gives me the opportunity to know each character and have more of a understanding on a situation and how they feel about an event or the other character in the story.

19. DO YOU READ A BOOK IN ONE SETTING OR OVER MULTIPLE DAYS?

Multiple days. I tend to take my time when it comes to reading, unless the book is just so darn incredible but even so I have a busy schedule thru out the day that I don’t have enough time in the day to complete one whole book in a day.

20. ONE BOOK YOU READ BECAUSE OF THE COVER?

The book that started it all for me, the book that pushed me to read more and more…

Warriors By Erin Hunter.

THE QUESTIONS  

  1. IF YOU COULD BECOME ANY FICTIONAL CHARACTER, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU PICK?

I would be Starfire from the Teen Titans. YES I said it because I always loved her in the DC Comics and the old Teen Titans show. Not only does she kick butt but her personality is just so awesome that she could be my BFF.

 

2. WHAT SEASON DO YOU LIKE BEST? WHY?

FALL! Hands down. Why?

IMG_1412

 

4. WHO / WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START BLOGGING? 

What inspired me to start my book blog was to meet other bookworms out there in this big old world. My best friends, my boyfriend, and even my family are not readers. I have no one to discuss and fan girl over books. Books are my life and I want to share that passion with others who share the same. I mean I do have a lot to say when it comes to books and I need to let it all out one way or another and I guess that’s blogging.

5. HOW MANY BOOKS DO YOU OWN THAT YOU HAVEN’T READ YET?

One moment please…49! All of them are on my TBR list 🙂

6. WHAT DOES YOUR PERFECT SELF- CARE DAY / NIGHT / WEEKEND LOOK LIKE?

I do have a lot of self-care days. During the day it’s sipping on some hot tea and taking Pop’s for his daily walk. Sewing, and lots of it. The rest of the day it’s more hot tea and reading! Little time spending with my boyfriend. Been with him for 10 years so I like to hang out in the bedroom where I have all my books while he is in the living room playing his games (The more the years go on we do are own thing but in the same house hold) HA! I don’t know why that puts a smile on my face but it did because playing online games like COD (Call Of DUTY) was always in my daily plan. NOT ANY MORE. But the perfect self care for me is just being me and doing what I love everyday and truth is that took me awhile to do. Make yourself happy and focus on your true hobbies that you are thrilled to do because if you don’t your mind will go nuts one way or another?! I hope I answered this correctly.

7. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BOOK COVER EVER?

This bad boy right here! Willa Of The Wood By Robert Beatty. This cover just speaks nature to me. The green and blue just UGH so stunning.

919kQRwIhwL

 

8. ARE THERE WORDS / TERMS THAT IMMEDIATELY TURN YOU OFF A BOOK? WHICH ONES? WHY?

Hmm very good question. No there is not. At least not right now.

9. IS THERE A GENRE YOU RARELY READ BUT DO LOVE READING?

Autobiography books. I do enjoy reading stories from others and what they experience. I remember when I read Marilyn Manson’s autobiography in freshmen year in high school…one and only one thing came to mind..TMI…and wow rock and roll man! Two things I guess.

10. MUNCHES! WHAT NATIONAL / LOCAL DISH ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?

CALAMARI! Yes I love Calamari, I always look forward to a plate of this deliciousness.

11. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOKISH ITEM?

Bookish candles. So so many creative ones and they smell fantastic which is a plus. I like to put the bookish candles on my shelf by the book that the candle belongs to. Anyone else do that?
