The Book Lover TagWednesday, March 19, 2014
I never really do these kind of posts but I always enjoy writing them! I felt this would be a great way to speak about my reading journey so far. I read about this tag through a blog I was reading from Sunday's #lbloggers chat. I felt it would be really interesting to do!
Do you remember how you developed a love for reading?I remember being in Primary 7 and for some reason I decided to pick up The Suitcase Kid but Jacqueline Wilson. I can't remember why I picked it up but I do know that I loved it and it lead me onto wanting to read more! Then on, I've been a bookworm ever since!
What is your least favourite book?
From the ones I've read it would probably be Forever by Maggie Stiefvater. I loved the series initially but by the last book I was bored of it! It took me to soo long to finish it as I just couldn't get into it. The only reason I continued and finished it was due to my best friend was a big fan of the series too!
What are you currently reading?
At the moment I am currently reading The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez. It's not really one I would normally pick up but it's one I'm reading as part of a book blogger twitter chat!
Where do you usually read?
I normally just read in my bed as it's the easiest place to. But I have been reading on the train more as of late and I also do love reading on a sun bed on holiday! Nothing more relaxing than that.
Do you prefer to read one book at a time or several at once?
I've never really tried reading several at once apart from in English back when I was in school. However, I don't think I could do it as I'm bad picking up all the information on a single read so I would be easily mixed up if I read more than once.
What is your favourite genre?
The type of genre I generally pick up is mystical/fantasy books but I am always look for something with a bit more 'heartfelt' reactions in it!
Is there a genre you will not read?
I would never rule of a book because of it's genre. I would be more likely to put it of because I don't like the sound of the story.
Do you have a favourite book?
When people normally ask me this I do try and come up with an answer, whether this is John Green's, Looking For Alaska, or something else. But truth be told, I don't really have one! I've read soo many books but I've never really gone back and reread any. Something I really need to do!
What is the longest book you have ever read?
Ummm.... I can't remember the name of the longest book I've read but I think it would be around the 500 page mark.
What was the last book you bought?
Officially the last books I bought were The Snow Child and The Secret Garden. However, to get around my book buying ban, I've told Darren that I don't rule out any that are gift given! So I've received a fair few from him recently.
Do you prefer library books or buying books?
I've not been to the library in years! But I used to go a lot. I really should go to the library more though- save myself some pennies! But I do love having my own copy of the book, especially if it's one I end up loving too!
Well, that's all my answers! I hope you enjoyed reading these and let me know if you have answered these or have any similar ones that you think I'd like to answer!
