20 Questions Book Tag

Hey everyone and happy Sunday to you all, hope your weekend is great ❤

I saw this tag over at Jenny In Neverland Blog and I really loved it even though I wasn’t tagged, so I thought to do this tag as well 😉 If you don’t know Jenny and her blog, go visit her now and say I sent you. She has such a beautiful blog and I love reading her fun posts.

I love reading books and doing fun tags so this is just perfect and I hope you’ll love it too.

Books

How many books are too many books in a series?

Well, I love long series and I have a few that are more than 30 books, lol, but I will say that my favorite number for a series is 3 books. It’s starting to get harder and harder for me to invest in a longer series due to a hectic life.

How do you feel about cliffhangers?

I love and hate cliffhangers in series ❤ But in most cases I really love them, they make the waiting better and I always thinking of that book, more than others. But if the author decides not to write the next book in the series and leaves with the cliffhanger that really pisses me off.

Hard copy or paperback?

For me, it’s paperbacks, hands down. I think hardcovers are more for vanity and display, while paperbacks are lighter, affordable and just more fun reading from (in my opinion anyway).

Favorite Book?

Wow, this is so hard as I really – truly love a lot of books. But If you are putting a gun to my head to choose then I will say Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. However, if I could put a few more names in there 😉 I will put The Host, Jane Eyre and a few more (well, a lot more, lol).

A least Favorite book?

I don’t like to book shame, lol, but there are a few that I didn’t like or even didn’t care to finish.

Love triangles, yer or no?

Love triangles are okay but not in all genres. If it’s Fiction, I think it fits nicely but in Fantasy or Science Fiction I think it’s mostly done badly and I don’t care for it. I don’t like to read romance types books, so I guess that says it all 😉

Love

The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?

Wow, I really don’t like this question (it’s too hard). I had a few books like that this year. I will say that the only book I own a physical copy of on my bookshelves that I didn’t like is The Cuckoo’s Calling by J. K. Rowling but I think it’s mostly because I am not that into Mystery reading.

A book you’re currently reading?

I am re-reading Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas ❤ I love this book and the entire series so much and her next series, lol 😀

I am also finishing up The Chronicles of Crallick (The Spirit of Amathrain, #1) by Brad C. Baker, a book I received to review.

Last book you recommended to someone?

I just talked with my best friend about The Artist Way by Julia Cameron and it turns out she already has the book and loved it a lot, I have the book on my kindle but I really want to have a physical copy of it 😀

The oldest book you’ve read?

The Monk by Matthew Gregory Lewis (It’s a romance novel that was published in 1796).

The newest book you’ve read?

I think it’s Turtles All the Way Down by John Green ❤

Favorite Author?

Wow, I must put a few authors in here (I can’t choose, hehe).

I love Jane Austen, J. R. R. Tolkien, Douglas Adams, John Green, J. K. Rowling, Sarah J. Maas, Robin Hobb, Charlotte Brontë Rick Riordan and so many more ❤

Buying books it borrowing books?

Finally an easy question, definitely buying books.

Take my money

A book you dislike that everyone seems to like?

I will have to say Carve the Mark (Carve the Mark #1) by Veronica Roth. I just couldn’t connect to anything and I was very disappointed by the writing and by the story.

Bookmarks or dog ears?

In most cases I don’t use bookmarks, I try to remember where I was, but if I need to I will use bookmarks and never ever dogears – NEVER, Nope!

No Dog Ears

A book you can always re-read

So much – omg. I love re-reading any book that I loved and enjoyed reading from all my favorite authors (some I listed above) ❤

Can you read whilst hearing music?

Nope.

One pov or multiple pov’s?

I love a single POV n a book.

Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?

Well, it mostly depends on the book and how much I am immersed in it, but generally, I am a very fast reader and I love finishing a book in one sitting, for me that means that the book was beyond amazing.

Reading

One book you read because of the cover

I’ve read a few books due to their covers 😉 Most recent was The Hawkman: A Fairy Tale of the Great War by Jane Rosenberg LaForge and it turned out great.

Wow, that was a bit long tag 😀 But I loved doing it. If you are a bookdragon like myself and would love to try on this tag, consider yourself tagged! If you do take on this tag, don’t forget to link your post to me so that I could read your amazing answers ❤

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

The Reader Problems Tag

readertag

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a good day 🙂

Long long time ago, I was tagged by the wonderful Rawls to do this fun tag. Sorry, it took so long to get to it, but I am happy to do it and it was such a fun tag. With everything that is going on in my life, all my tags and challenges were put aside, but I am so glad to be able to do it now.

Thanks again, so much ❤

Q: You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next?

I pick my books by the mood I am having at that moment 😉

Sherlock

Q: You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you quit or commit?

I used to force myself to keep on reading but now… If the book just can’t keep me reading, I will stop. It’s sad when it happens, but reading for me is fun and enjoyment and I will not force myself to read something that I can’t connect to. Sometimes I can go back to the book and maybe give it another go, but much later. But mostly this is how I feel when I need to stop…

Q: The end of the year is coming and you’re so close yet so far away on your GoodReads challenge. Do you quit or commit?

I used to be great at reading a lot of books in a month and in a year, but not now. I still try to put some sort of yearly reading goals, in hopes to achieve them… will see 😉

Q: The covers of a series you love DO. NOT. MATCH. How do you cope?

It’s horrible and I hate when they do that. WHY? Why do they do this to me?

Q: Everyone and their mother love a book you really don’t like. Who do you bond with over shared feelings?

I would blog about it or just share a short review on Goodreads and read other Goodreads reviews of 1-2 stars, lol.

Q: You’re reading a book and you’re about start crying in public. How do you deal?

I never read outside, as I hate taking my beauties out, lol.

Q: A sequel of a book you loved just came out, but you’ve forgotten a lot from the prior novel. Will you re-read the book? Skip the sequel? Try to find a summary on GoodReads? Cry in frustration?

I love re-reading my books. When a sequel is coming out I will start re-reading the first book and continue with the next one.

Q: You don’t want ANYONE borrowing your books. How do you politely tell people “nope” when they ask?

Everyone in my life knows well not to even ask me for a book because I’m not giving. If someone will ask, I will bluntly say No! I love my shiny book to stay pretty and perfect (I know I’m a bit too obsessive, but I don’t care)  ❤

Q: You’ve picked up and put down five different books in the past month. How do you get over the reading slump?

I recently got into a reading slump and what helps me a lot is to read a few books at a time, this way I do not bored easily and I get to enjoy many stories at once, lol.

Q: There are so many new books coming out that you are dying to read! How many do you actually buy?

I wish I could buy all the books, lol. Sadly with the low budget I have, I can buy very little (about 2 to 5 new books a year).

Q: After you’ve bought a new book you want to get to, how long do they sit on your shelf until you actually read them?

I read it at the same day I bought it. I have very few books that “just sit” on my shelf. I currently have a bit over 500 books and I didn’t read about 10 books or less, lol. As soon as buy I must start reading it and if it’s that good, I will finish it that same day or a day after 😀


Wow, that is all of this tag. Some of the questions were hard to answer but still had fun answering them 🙂 Feel free to answer on some (or all) of the question in comments below or even give this tag a try.

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

Happy Sunday to all my wonderful reader and fellow bloggers 🙂

As you all know, I’m sick (again), lol, all thanks go to my dear hubby 😉 I’ve been sleeping all day long and doing nothing (I feel a bit guilty because of that, but just a bit).
