I was recently watching a few of Maddie and Bee‘s videos and saw this tag on their channel. It looked a lot of fun to do and I thought I would give it a go!
A – Author you’ve read the most books from
I have to say Roald Dahl for this. I read all of his children’s books when I was younger and have reread a lot of them since my childhood. Even after so many years he is still one of my favourite authors
B – Best sequel you’ve read
I actually enjoyed Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins more than I liked The Hunger Games. The sequel packed a bigger punch for me and it got me so much more involved with the story.
C – Currently reading
I am currently reading Skylarks by Karen Gregory. I am loving this book and a lot and cannot wait to see what happens!
D – Drink of choice whilst reading
I am not a big hot drinks fan and have one every drank 2 cups of tea in my life and I hate the taste of coffee. So, when I am reading the drink I am most likely to have next to me is water but sometimes I will stretch to having a caramel hot chocolate.
E – E-Reader or physical book
I like both. I am a big fan of reading my kindle when I am led in bed, it is the only thing I can read with if I want to lie down and read. I wear glasses so cannot lie down and read with them on and struggle to lie down and read a physical book without my glasses on. I can read a kindle though. If I am sat up and it is during the day I am most like to pick up a physical book. They both have there advantages and disadvantages for me so I like both.
F – Fictional character you would be friends with in highschool
I would have to say Angel from I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman. I feel that me and her have a lot in common and would obsess over a boyband together. I obsessed over boybands in high school so I can imagine we would be friends obsessing over boybands together.
G – Glad you gave this book a chance
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, I bought this book after so many recommendations for it but it sat in my room for a long time. I didn’t think I was going to be a fan of it but I am so glad I gave it a chance because this book is spectacular!
H – Hidden Gem Book
I have to mention Countless by Karen Gregory here. Not many people have heard of this gem of a book. This book made me laugh, made me cry and gave me a long book hangover. I want people to know about this book and give it a read because it is not a book to miss out on.
I – Important moment in your reading life
When I started my book blog, I started this is August 2016 and haven’t regretted it since. I have made so many wonderful friends through blogging and have had so many amazing experiences. I am so glad I took the plunge to start my blog.
J – Just finished
I just finished reading More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer. I loved this book so much and will be posting a review for it very soon!
K – Kind of books you won’t read
Fantasy, I really cannot get into this book genre and don’t think I ever will. I don’t know what it is about this genre but I really don’t find it entertaining. Sorry to all the fantasy lovers out there!
L – Longest book you’ve read
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K Rowling which is 766 pages long. I read this whilst I was in high school
M – Major Book Hangover
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, I couldn’t pick up another book for a good week once I had finished reading Illuminae, I just couldn’t stop thinking about it!
N – Number of book cases you own
None! My books are all under my bed in boxes because I do not have room in my bedroom for books. This makes it so hard work to find a particular book but it is the best I can do at the minute.
O – One book you’ve read multiple times
I have read Matilda by Roald Dahl many times over the years and like reading it at least once a year.
P – Preferred place to read
You are most likely to find me reading in my bed. Although I do enjoy sitting in a big armchair and reading!
Q – Quote that inspires you
It would have to be the quote on in the picture on the left from The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.
R – Reading regret
Adding so many books to my TBR when I am really excited about them and not reading the straight away.
S – Series started and need to finish
The Illuminae Series. I have the last two books to read and I want to read them soon.
T – Three all time favourite books
- The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James
- Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
- Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
U – Unapologetic fangirl for
Lauren James, I cannot help it! Her books are incredible and she is so lovely. She knows I am obsessed with her work but she is so lovely I don’t mind that she knows
V – Very excited for this release
I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman. I cannot wait for this book to be out in the work and I cannot wait to discuss it with more people!
W – Worse Bookish Habit
Reading multiple books at once and getting confused which storyline belongs to which and which characters are from which book. I need to stop doing this!
X – X-Marks the spot, the 27th book on your book shelf
I don’t have bookshelves so I am going to do this slightly differently. I am going to see what the 27th book in my all the books I own Goodreads shelf is when it is in alphabetical order. Which means I got Night Owls by Jenn Bennett.
Y – Latest Book Purchase
I bought Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer right after finishing More Than We Can Tell because I needed more of her writing.
Z – Z snatcher, book that took away your sleep
I stayed up till about 4am to finish Super Awkward by Beth Garrod after starting it at 9pm the evening before. I just couldn’t put it down.
