Documentaries (A non-fiction book you’d recommend to everyone)

I don’t read a lot of non-fiction and nothing immediately springs to mind…

Max: Tag some people!!

I tag anyone who wants to give this tag a go it was a lot of fun!

No Disclaimers Book Tag 🏷

I thought I would have a little fun and do the No Disclaimers Book Tag! I love doing tags, I’ve seen this one a few times before and thought why not give it a go!

Which trope(tropes) in books annoy you the most? I think a super placid, naïve, underwhelming female protagonist. The one who always needs to be rescued or can’t function without a man by her side…

Which writer or writers do you feel are overrated/over hyped? I would have to say Holly Black, I’ve only read The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King by her and I was underwhelmed.

2603282526032887

What are your least favourite books you’ve read since blogging? I’m going to have to say The Darkest Minds series.

darkest-minds-giveaway-feature

A terrible ending that ruined an otherwise quality book? I read the Raven Cycle last year and really enjoyed the build-up of anticipation over the course of the series but the ending in The Raven King was a little stale.

What fictional character(s) you wish were not killed off? I’m still low-key not over Professor Dumbledore and Fred Weasley … 

What are some of your bookish pet peeves? When someone borrows a book and doesn’t return it! Ugh!

What are some books you feel should have more recognition? Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson, I really enjoyed this book but I feel like not a lot of people talk about it!

Reading Habits Tag 🏷

Today I thought I would have some fun and do the reading habits tag. I know there are dozens of different kinds of tags out there that is bookish related that I would love to do in the future but for today I hope you enjoy and learn a bit more about me! 🙂

Do you have a certain place at home for reading? 

I like to be alone when I read so it is usually in my bedroom.

Bookmark or random piece of paper? 

Book mark, although if I am in a bind and don’t have any bookmarks or random bits of paper I have been known to dog ear 🤷🏽‍♀️

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/certain amount of pages? 

I usually like to stop at the start of a new chapter, but if something comes up I can stop mid page, it doesn’t really bother me.

Do you eat or drink while reading? 

Frequently! If you were to borrow any of my books you may come across smudge or faint droplet.

Multitasking: Music or TV while reading? 

I like absolute peace and quiet when I read! Background noise just bugs me.

One book at a time or several at once? 

I am a one book at a time kind of person. I will forget plot lines and get character mixed up and have everything twisted.

Reading at home or everywhere? 

I really only ever read at home.

Reading out loud or silently in your head? 

I mostly read silently in my head. If something particularly juicy happens or if my cringe factor is at an all-time high during a book I do like to make exclamations and talk to myself lol

Do you read ahead or even skip pages? 

Not really. If I am bored during parts of a book I may just skim through paragraphs but never whole pages.

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new? 

I try to keep them like new for as long as possible but its not the end of the world if they do end up a bit worn.

Do you write in your books? 

No, I’ve never been one to annotate.
