House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland

The Currently Reading Tag

I did this tag over a year ago now and thought it would be fun to do it again and see if any of my answers differ!

Picture1

I’ve actually recently started with 2 books at a time. One physical and one ebook!

Picture2

During the day, either when I’m at work or out and about and I have a spare 5-10 minutes I can just pull my book up on my phone or computer and read the eBook. At night when I’m in bed I will usually switch over to the physical book!

Picture3

Lately I haven’t even been using bookmarks, I’ll either dog ear the page I’m on or just lay the book down on the open pages.

Usually on my bed or on my nightstand (same)

Picture5

Lately during my reading slump it’s just whenever the mood comes over me, could be any time of the day.

Picture6

Depends on how I’m feeling about the book. If I’m invested and I know it’s a quite short read I will probably just end up finishing it in one sitting, otherwise could be anywhere from 1-6 hours.

Picture7

Yes, I always end up damaging the dust jacket otherwise; I kind of throw my books around a lot

Picture8

Laying down, either or my side on on my back!

Picture9

No I will leave it in my room usually on my bed

Picture10

This depends as well, usually after a sitting and I put the book down I will update my Goodreads but if I forget or am too tired to I will wait and just update when I finish the book!

Bookshelf Book Tag

I’ve seen this tag floating around the blogosphere and had to give it a go!

I have three bookshelves!

Between 280-290 books

Right now it’s in complete chaos!

The oldest book that I’ve personally owned is probably my paperback edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

The newest book on my shelves would be Bila Yarrudhanggalangdhuray by Anita Heiss

The shortest book is probably Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

Fantasy for sure!!!

I’ve posted pics of my shelves before but I haven’t done an in depth tour of my collection

I got the 18th book on shelves which is Starsight by Brandon Sanderson the second book in the Skyward series. This was a great continuation to this series. Brandon Sanderson really took the foundations that he laid down in Skyward and continued to build depth and layers to the story that is just so entertaining and enthralling to read!

No I don’t like decorations on my shelves I like to let the books speak for themselves!

Goodreads Was Wrong Book Tag

I seen this tag on Way Too Fantasy and I just had to give it a go!!

1. What is the highest rated book that you gave a low rating? (Sort your books in Goodreads based on Average Ratings and find the highest rated book you gave a low rating).

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi – average rating is 4.38 I gave it ⭐️3 stars

2. What is the lowest rated book that you gave a high rating? (Sort your books in Goodreads based on Avg Ratings, in reverse order, and find the lowest rated book you gave a high rating).

Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart – average rating is 3.30 I have it ⭐️4 stars

3. What is the most popular book you disagree with the avg rating? (Sort your books in Goodreads based on number of Ratings, and find the first book you disagree with the avg rating)

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood – a little overhyped I gave it ⭐️3 stars it has an average of 4.12

4. What is the least popular book you disagree with the avg rating? (Sort your books in Goodreads based on number of Ratings, in reverse order, and find the first book you disagree with the avg rating)

Permanent Record by Mary H.K. Choi – I didn’t really like this book I gave it ⭐️2 stars and the average rating is 3.44

5. Choose two books that have an average rating of 3/5 stars but you gave a higher rating.

Well Played by Jen Deluca – average rating of 3.53 I gave it ⭐️4 stars

Wilder Girls by Rory Power – average rating of 3.54 I gave it ⭐️4 stars

The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu – average rating of 3.72 I gave it ⭐️2 stars

7. Choose two books that have an average rating of 4/5 stars but you gave a lower rating.

Sightwitch by Susan Dennard – average rating of 4.01 I gave it ⭐️3 stars

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – average rating of 4.03 I gave it ⭐️3 stars

8. Choose two books that have an average rating of 2/5 stars but you gave a higher rating.

I haven’t read any books since I’ve been on Goodreads that are below a 3.12 average

9. Do you tend to agree or disagree with GR average rating and do you use GR as a guide for books you want to read?

I would say overall absolutely.. the majority of my rating coincide with the average! I will typically look to see what the average rating is before I start a book, but it doesn’t sway my opinions at all.
