Hello, everyone! I was tagged by Laura @thebookcorps, please check her blog if you haven’t already, because she offers such good content and her design is very beautiful. Let’s get into the questions, shall we?
Author you’ve read the most books from : Krista and Becca Ritchie, J.K.Rowling and more.
Best Sequel Ever : Prince’s Gambit by C.S. Pacat, I feel like this book was a game-changer in the series. The first one had me hooked, but I also had some doubts. But this book was hands down, glorious and put every doubt of mine to rest.
Currently Reading : I just finished the Wrath and the Dawn duology and right now I don’t know what to read next. (Update : I’ve started American Panda, so happy I got accepted for this on netgalley)
Drink of Choice While Reading : Hot chocolate!! I adore hot chocolate very much and especially, when it’s rainy or just cold weather.
E-reader or Physical Book? : Both. Ebooks are very practical for me, I prefer physical books because of the feel that you get when you’re holding the book in your hands.
Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School : Peter K. or Ryke Meadows, listen up, in high-school, I was very much into the athlete type (I guess opposites do attract, after all, lol). I’m pretty sure Ryke would have been such a supportive boyfriend even in high-school since he’s all for girl power and we would have gotten along so well talking about feminism. (I wouldn’t have cooked for Peter K. because I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t have a death wish).
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance : I’m happy that I gave SoC and Vicious a chance because I’m awful when it comes to reading very hyped books. I’m always feeling lots of pressure because I’m afraid I won’t like them. And with Caraval, there were many negative reviews from people I trust and I’m happy that I gave it a chance, because I adored it!
Hidden Gem Book : Mariana Zapata as an author is a hidden gem for me! She’s the queen of slow-burn romances, she’s absolutely perfect at writing sport romances and I really loved these two books I’ve read from her. (I’ve read some reviews of her latest books that claimed diversity issues in those books, but I can’t speak on that topic. These two books are amazing and I totally recommend them!)
Important Moment in your Reading Life : Most probably when I started being more active on the blog because I discovered lots of amazing people with whom I interact and who have recommended me great books. And since then, I feel more connected to the community (though my reading schedule is more chaotic, I guess).
Just Finished : Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy! I will soon post a review of the book, too!
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read : I’m not sure, I tend to stay away from problematic books because I don’t like to support that kind of things. So, if people say that a book is racist or homophobic or sexist, I would tend to stay away (unless I want to read it and slam it down).
Longest Book You’ve Read : Anna Karenina (with 964 pages) and The Sunne in Splendour (936 pages), I would love to read a book that’s over 1000 pages, but it’s just so intimidating since I tend to lose my focus very easily.
Major book hangover because of : There are two types of book hangovers I might get : a book that is so bad that I end up not being able to read for a long time because of how awful it is (see The Alchemist) or a book that is sooo good that I can’t stop thinking about it (see The Winner’s Trilogy, The Hunger Games and more) .
Number of Bookcases You Own : Two, but I own less books that I would like to, there are many books that belong to my parents and they aren’t really mine. But I’m a broke student, so what can I do?
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times : No answer to that. Sorry. I just don’t do rereadings. I have so much anxiety thinking about those unread books to read a book twice.
Preferred Place To Read : My comfy bed, I adore reading in bed.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read :
Sylvia Plath’s writing speaks to me so much (which might be bad? I really don’t care), I didn’t have much luck with Woolf’s books, but I really admire what she did as a writer.
Reading Regret : Most New Adult books I’ve read besides Zapata’s and Ritchie twins’, I always end up reading something from the genre when I’m looking for something light/a guilty pleasure. And I always end up feeling only guilty for wasting my time.
Series You Started And Need To Finish (all books are out in series) : Hahahaha, what’s this tag’s purpose? Dragging me? I have a shelf called ‘series-i-need-to-complete’, you know why? Because I don’t finish series. A Darker Shade of Magic, Heroes of Olympus, Shatter Me, Raven Cycle, Grisha, Bloodlines. You see what I’m talking about?
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books : byeeeee. The people who create these tags love to make people suffer, I’m sure of it.
1. The Winner’s Kiss
2. The Song of Achilles
3. The Hobbit
Unapologetic Fangirl For : LORD OF THE RINGS WILL ALWAYS OWN MY ASS. I’m sorry for the language, you know how I get when I’m talking of my faves. Also, Jenny Han, I did a lot of fangirling over Peter K. and Lara Jean.
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others :
Madeline Miller is probably the only author who won me over with a book. I’m a pretentious asshole that needs confirmation and I’m always holding my breath, wondering if the next one will disappoint. But Miller has my blind trust.
Worst Bookish Habit : Not finishing series, like I’ve said above.
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book : Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi, I guess that’s a cue that I need to pick that book up, at last!!
Your latest book purchase : Since my birthday was on 22nd October, which was a week ago, I made some purchases on account of my relatives’ accounts.
I bought these beautiful, marvelous books and these are some books that I needed to read as soon as possible and I’m so glad that I own them now! I’ve already started TWATD and the rest I’m going to get to!
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late) : Hahahaha, every book keeps me up way late because I’m a night owl! So, the last book I’ve finished, which is Anna Karenina!
That was it for today! I hope you enjoyed the tag and now I’m going to tag some people (you can do it if you like it or you can choose not to! I don’t mind), also if people that I haven’t tagged want to do it, you’re my guest!!
