Tag: The Book Blogger Test

Hello all! It’s time for another tag from another brilliant blogger! Thank you to Hamad from The Book Prescription for tagging me in the Book Blogger Test, definitely go and check out his blog!! 😊

The Rules

Thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
Answer the questions asked on this post — don’t stress it’s quick!
Nominate and notify some peeps. 5 preferred.

What are your 3 bookish pet peeves?

  • When people borrow books and dog ear the pages
  • Spoilers for a series/a specific plot point in a book
  • Stickers on the cover of books that don’t peel off just right and leave the cover a bit sticky

Name a perfect reading spot.

My perfect reading spot is either on my bed or sat on the settee with a blanket, some cushions, and a coffee.

Give 3 reading confessions.

  • I start skim reading and have to go back and reread parts of the page.
  • As much as I think hard backs are beautiful, I would always rather read a paperback.
  • I’ve only just given the Kindle a chance, and honestly I’m loving it! The books are a lot cheaper and I can generally fit my tablet into any bag I’m carrying!

When was the last time you cried during a book.

I know I teared up when reading parts of Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven, but I don’t think I cried.

 Number of books on your bedside table?

One. And it’s my tablet with my Kindle book on it (Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff)

Favourite reading snack?

Coffee and a cookie, especially shortbread cookies.

What are 3 books you’d recommend to anyone?

  • The Harry Potter series
  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
  • Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Provide a picture of your bookshelves.

      

Bookshelf number 1 has a lot of my older books on it and it double stacked. It also has some of my brother’s books on it (his manga etc) and the notebook and books I bought that I used for my dissertation this last year. Bookshelf number 2 is mostly favourites, my Harry Potter shelf, and books I’m planning to read soon, mixed with some of my boyfriend’s bigger books. It’s also got lots of mugs with bookmarks and the like in them.

How much do books mean to you in 3 words?

So so much.

Biggest reading secret?

I don’t know if this is a secret but it’s all I can think of so: I’ve never read any Jane Austen books, and don’t know if I will.

I tag: 

Siobhan from Novelties,

Beth from Reading Every Night,

Brianna from Brianna the Bookworm,

Lily from Sprinkles of Dreams

and anyone reading this who fancies completing this tag!

No worries if you don’t want to do the tag/have already done it!

  1. Thank you so much for the tag!! That’s so kind of you😊

    Ah I hate it when the sticker won’t come off the cover! That’s the worst. And I’ve never read a Jane Austen book either😬 We read a little bit of Pride and Prejudice in school a few year ago, but I’ve never finished one!

    1. Any time!😊

      Book stickers are the worst! I’ve heard that using a hairdryer helps to get the sticker off more easily so I may try that next time! Aw fair enough, we never read any in school, and I didn’t seek it out myself and now I don’t know if I will😅

  2. Oh, thanks so much for the tag. I’ll be looking forwards to taking part in this one myself because I have some epic bookish secrets I can share! 😀
    I’m guilty of skimming parts of the books, mainly when I’m too distracted or too eager to get to the next page. Also Six of Crows and the Harry Potter series are two I’ll always recommend, and I’ve never read anything by Jane Austen so you’re not alone there! The only classic I have read is Alice in Wonderland.
    Great post, and again thanks for the tag. 🙂 ❤

  3. I haven’t read Jane Austen but I want to. I’m starting with Pride and Prejudice next month! I actually have a huge book with all of them in it. I’m kinda excited. lol Oh, a trick for the sticky stuff on your book… use some goo gone on a rag/paper towel and wipe the sticky stuff. It will be a little oily but just use a fresh rag to clean that off. You can also use a bit of peanut butter to get sticky stuff off! 🙂

    1. They are aren’t they?! Also sooooo much cheaper! And a lot smaller, I can fit way more paperbacks on my shelves than hardbacks! That being said, I’ll probably be ordering the Six of Crows collectors edition hardback from Waterstones because it’s beautiful 😍

  4. I loved reading your answers! I totally agree, I hate stickers that don’t completely peel off 😫 I’m planning to buy a Kindle by the end of this year and I cannot wait; I’m glad you enjoy the Kindle! I love reading indoors too 😊 Also your bookshelves are gorgeous 😍

    1. Thanks! I know right, it’s soooo annoying!😩 oooo I hope you like it! Kindle books are pretty cool, they’re cheaper and you can make the text bigger or smaller which I’ve found brilliant! Reading outdoors is a pain, especially when it’s too windy or too sunny!! Awww thank you very much!!! I do love my bookshelves, I love rearranging them and adding to them! 😁
