Halloween book tag πŸŽƒπŸ‘»

  
Thank you so much to imanadventurest for tagging me to do this great new tag which they created! Check out their blog because it’s brilliant!

πŸ‘» Favourite scary read for Halloween:

   This book isn’t out and out scary but it has a creepy feel to it and I just couldn’t put it down so it is definitely my favourite!

πŸŽƒ Scariest book cover. Like ever.

   I love Brandon Sanderson’s covers and this one creeped me out so much before I read the book and probably even more since lol

πŸ‘» If you could pick any author to go trick or treating with, who would you pick?

I want to go trick or treating with J K Rowling and I want to go trick or treating at Hogwarts and I don’t’ think that’s unreasonable!

πŸŽƒ If you could dress up as any bookish character for Halloween, who would you be?

   I think I might even have to do this next year!

πŸ‘» If you could find anything from any book in your trick or treat stash, what would you hope to find?

  Dwayne Johnson, I think it would be more of a trick or treat sack but if I found him in there I’d be pretty pleased ☺️

πŸŽƒ In what fictional world would you like to go trick or treating?

I think you’d get a pretty interesting stash in Middle Earth

πŸ‘» what book villain would you not like to meet alone in a dark alley on Halloween?

  Voldemort would be pretty much the worst person to run in to, he’d just kill you no matter what!

πŸŽƒ would you rather dress up as a vampire, zombie, werewolf or shadowhunter?

  It would be easier to look good as any of the others but if I’m dressing up I think I’d rather go all out as a zombie!
πŸ‘»pick a candy (just one) from Harry Potter that you would love to find in your stash

I’d go with Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans because they are technically every candy anyway!

πŸŽƒWhat is your favourite Halloween candy?

I just like dairy milk chocolate lol I never want anything else’s!


I hope you all had fun reading my answers and I’d like to tag anyone who would like to do this great tag! Don’t forget to link back to Book Adventures if you do as it is their original tag! Xoxo

So here’s my quote for day 1:

  

There aren’t many books that I can quote from memory but somehow I can think of many, many Harry Potter quotes and they hold as much magic as they did the very first time I read them…

I tag you if you haven’t done this one yet and I’d love to see your quotes too ☺️xoxo

My life in books tag πŸ“–

I was actually tagged to do this one! So thank you Caroline for tagging me and you should check out her blog too!
1. Find a book for each of your initials

  

S: Switched by Amanda Hocking. If you haven’t read these books yet then it’s about time you crawl out from under your rock and get on with it! Plus Amanda Hocking is very inspirational to me so this is the obvious choice ☺️

  
V: Voice of the Gods by Trudi Canavan. I LOVE this series! If you’re into ya fantasy then you should definitely check these out. It’s been a few years since I’ve read it but the characters and their story have stayed with me

2. Count your age along your bookshelf – which book is it?

  

I’m an alphabetiser so there’s nothing random about my shelf but at number 28 sits this little beauty. If you haven’t read this prequel then I definitely recommend it (I just wish it had been a trilogy too)

3. Pick a book set in your city/state/country.

  

I went for the Slated books by Teri Terry, they are set in sunny England and are a really great dystopian read.

4. Pick a book that represents a destination you would love to travel to.

  

Hogwarts. I want to go to Hogwarts *stamps foot impatiently* my owl must have gotten lost…

5. Pick a book that’s your favourite colour.

  
I like grey. Maybe this is strange but I just like grey and I love Game of Thrones so here’s my winner.

6. Which book do you have the fondest memories of?

  

My dad used to read The Hobbit to me when I was very little and it’s where my love of books began.

7. Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?

I can’t really think of one that I would call difficult but I tend to find classics kinda boring 😳

8. Which book in your tbr would give you the biggest sense of accomplishment when you finish it?

  
The Game of Thrones books. Im about half way through A clash of Kings (book 2) and I’m loving it but I watched the tv series first (I know that’s not okay but it was on my tbr and the series looked so good and I caved) I’m reading them now that the series has caught up with the books but because I already know the basic plot I’m not rushing to read and find out what happens next so it’s taking me a little while to get through. Plus this is by far the biggest series on my tbr which I’m not already at least part way into yet!

I hope you enjoyed my answers ☺️ As usual I’m tagging everyone who wants to do this!  

Mean Girls Book Tag πŸ’ƒπŸ»

  
In the general tradition that I have created for myself of just doing tags I haven’t been tagged to do, I’m doing this one! So here goes…

1.“It’s pronounced like Cady” – which fictional character’s name do you get completely wrong?

Hermione πŸ™ˆ she was Harmony to me for a long time lol

  
2. “She doesn’t even go here!” – which character would you like to place in a fictional world from another book or series?

I’d like to stick Celeana Sardothian in The Hunger Games because let’s be honest, she would be the best contestant ever! 

  
3. “On Wednesdays we wear pink!” – Repetition. Repetition. Which book gave you dejavu of another book while reading it?

50 Shades of Grey gave me Twilight dejavu for obvious reasons lol. A friend of mine bet me I wouldn’t be able to guess what happened in the end and I laughed as I told her how the whole thing would play out. πŸ˜‹

  
4. “You all have got to stop calling each other sluts and whores. It just makes it okay for guys to call you sluts and whores.” – which book gave you the complete opposite of girl power feels?

Watership Down. They’re all rabbits. And boys. (Also did the cartoon give anyone else nightmares? 😱)

  
5. “You go Glen Coco!” – name a character you felt like you wanted to cheer on while reading.

Katniss Everdeen! I mean yeah it was a trilogy so I was fairly sure she’d survive the Hunger Games but I was cheering her on all the way! πŸŽ‰

  
6. “Get in loser, we’re going shopping!” – how long do you typically spend in a book shop?

If I’m alone or with my sister we could be talking hours, if I’m with my husband I’ll be lucky to get 10 minutes *sigh*

7. “It’s not my fault you’re like in love with me or something!” – which fictional character would have to get a restraining order on you if they were real?

Probably Chaol Westfall and Edward Cullen 😳 Also if Dwayne Johnson ever got too close to me he might have a problem…

  
8. “I can’t help it if I’m popular.” –which overhyped book were you cautious about reading?

Twilight. I hated the idea of it and even let someone ruin the whole plot for me before eventually deciding to give it a go and loving it lol

  
9. “She’s a life ruiner. She ruins peoples lives.” – we all love Regina George. Name a villain you couldn’t help but love.

Eric in Divergent. 😍 so maybe I fell for him a bit too hard but I stand by it!

  
10. “I’m not like a regular mom, I’m a cool mom.” – your favourite fictional parents.

I generally hate parents in everything lol they’re always trying to be downers on everything (Clary’s mom 😑) but there is an obvious exception to the rule – Molly and Arthur Weasly! (Not movie Molly though 😑)

  
11. “That’s so fetch!” – which book or series would you love to catch on? 

I think this series is already fairly popular but I never seem to find anyone else who has read it and it’s great! 

  
12. “How do I even begin to explain Regina George?” – describe your ideal character to read about.

I think I just love a badass. Someone tough and in control who knows what they like and what they don’t and goes after what they want in life 

13. “I just have a lot of feelings.” – what do you do when a book gives you a bad case of ‘the feels?’

Try (and fail) to explain it to my husband, get frustrated, search for someone who has read it and knows, usually fail, get frustrated, read on lol

14. “Nice wig Janice, what’s it made from? Your mom’s chest hair?” – which characters one-liners would you love to claim for yourself?

The one that springs to mind is Effie from The Hunger games

  
15. “Boo, you whore.” – name a time a character’s decision has made you roll your eyes

Tris. She made a great decision to be Dauntless and the rest of them often made me want to scream lol 

  
If you’d like to do this tag then please do! Xoxo

Confessions of a writer tag…

  
I was tagged to do this by Melanie so thank you! This looks fun and a little daunting but here goes nothing…
This tag was created by a little bookish a little writerly and the rules are listed there!

1. When did you first start writing? Was being a writer something you always wanted to do?

I first started writing my Cage of Lies books in August 2013 but have been writing on and off since I was a kid. I always wanted to be a writer and it was something I always just said and bpnever really did much about so one day I just decided to stop talking about it and stat doing it!

  
2. What genre do you write?

So far Dystopia but I have an apocalyptic series running around in my head which will probably follow and I’d love to do fantasy one day too!

  
3. Can you tell us a little about your current work in progress? When did you start working on this project?

I’m currently working on Broken, the third instalment of my Cage of Lies saga. I’m in more of an editing stage with it than all out writing and as it’s the third book I won’t give too much away but this one is emotionally more difficult than the others. Maya, my protagonist, is dealing with a lot of difficult issues in her personal life as well as the ongoing struggles that run throughout the series. I’ve been working on the series for a few years but can’t be sure exactly when I started in this book!

4. What was your first piece that you can remember writing? What was it about?

The first piece I can actually remember writing was a fantasy with lots of dragons and people who lived in cities in the clouds. It started off with this little hermit guy who was guarding a town in the middle of the city. Some people came and kidnapped a girl from the town and killed the hermit… I didn’t finish it but maybe one day I’ll find it and see if there’s anything there that I can use going forward lol

  
5. What’s the best part about writing?

I get go on an adventure every day!

  
6. What’s the worst part about writing?

Killing off characters you love because the plot demands it 😭

7. What’s the name of your favourite character and why? (This can be from another author or your own work. Book crushes are perfectly acceptable here as well.)

Today, it’s Harry Potter I don’t have to tell you why because you already know! 

  
8. How much time a day/week do you get to write? When is the best time for you to write (morning or night)?

Time of day doesn’t make much difference to me. I tend to write when I get in from work in the evenings or on my days off and I’ll squeeze some into my lunch breaks too. When I’m in all out writing mode I have a minimum of 2000 words a day to write but on my days off I make that 8000 and I’ve managed 12000 a few times ☺️

9. Did you go to college for writing? Or if you haven’t been to college yet, do you plan to?

I didn’t. I don’t think it matters as I think writing is a passion and you can either do it or you can’t. Everyone’s routes to it are different but for me college wasn’t part of my journey.

10. What bothers you more: spelling errors, punctuation errors or grammar errors?

They all bother me but I’d go for grammar because I can’t bear it when people get their there and they’re muddled – it sets my teeth on edge! 

  
11. What is the best writing advice that anyone has given you?

Write what you love. If you love the story you are trying to tell then you will get it written, edited and out there. If you don’t love it you’ll lose momentum along the way…

12. What advice would you give to another writer?

Write the book you want to read. Don’t try and please anyone else, don’t compromise your vision and when you finish it you’ll be proud of it!

13. What are your favourite writing sites or blogs that you turn to for help, tips or encouragements?

To be honest I’ve never used any πŸ˜• I just do what feels natural and I have my sister to discuss any issues with or offer encouragement!

14. Besides writing, what else do you enjoy doing? What are your hobbies?

Reading lol I love working out and watching movies and playing video games if I get the chance too.

  
15. What is the best book you’ve read this year?

Ahhhh this is so hard but I think Queen of Shadows pips it for me!

  
16. What is the best movie you’ve seen this year?

Ahhh this is hard too 😬 maybe the new Terminator as that sounds out in my mind

  
17. What is your favourite book or series of all time?

I don’t know I don’t know! I’m going for Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and the Twilight saga oh and Lord of the Rings and probably more too because I have too many!

18. Who is your favourite author?

I can’t pick. If I do a list it will have more than ten names on it so I just won’t lol

19. What are your plans for the rest of the year in terms of your writing?

I’ll be editing and trying to release Broken and I think I’ll try to write and release another novella called Embers (I can’t give away anything about that one for spoilers lol)

20. Where else can we find you online?

Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads and my books are available on Amazon 😊
I’m just nominating any authors out there who would like to do this, I’d love to head your answers too! Xoxo

The Ultimate Book Tag πŸ“š

  
So I’ve seen this tag floating around the blogosphere and I really wanted to do it! No one tagged me but I’m taking a tag from the universe as I’m guessing he universe would really like me to do it πŸ˜‚

1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?

No πŸ’ƒπŸ» I’m super lucky and I can read in the car (my husband refers to it as unsociable but that’s his problem lol) 

  
2. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you?

Moira Young wrote Blood Red Road phonetically with a Deep South accent and no speech marks. NONE. At first I was all WTF but I pushed on and I ended up loving the whole series! I can honestly say I’ve never read anything written like it and it takes a bit of getting used to but it’s brilliant and I definitely reccommend it 😊

  
3. Harry Potter series or Twilight saga? Give 3 points to explain your answer

I do love them both but it’s always going to be Harry P

1. Because there’s magic

2. Because their postmen are owls

3. Because Hagrid. ’nuff said πŸ˜‹

  
4. Do you carry a book bag? If so what’s in it (besides books)?

Erm no lol. I carry a handbag (some would say my collection of handbags is bordering an unhealthy number but they’d be wrong 😳) in my handbag I’ll have my book or kindle plus my money and boring stuff like keys and hand gel because I’m a germs freak plus some make-up and my phone and sometimes my cat climbs in it when I’m not looking but I don’t take him out of the house…

  
5. Do you smell your books?

Not really, but I can’t say never 

  
6. Books with or without little illustrations?

I probably prefer without because I love to let the words paint the pictures in my mind and if I see a picture I’ll just have that in my head instead although I do love illustrations too lol so maybe I can just look at them after I’ve finished reading and then I get the best of both worlds 😊

7. What book did you love while reading but discovered later is wasn’t quality writing?

Erm, I can’t think of one πŸ˜• I know that I’ve noticed little things sometimes but generally speaking, if the story has got enough going for it then I can be pretty forgiving!

8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!

Not really, that’s not to say there aren’t any but I can’t think of them right now 😬

9. What is the tiniest book on your shelf?

The Tales of Beedle the Bard by JK Rowling. It’s skinny mini but that’s okay ☺️

  
10. What’s the thickest book on your shelf?

I’ve got a stupidly old copy of Lord of the Rings which is all three books in one and it’s a hardback. So it’s biiiiig (and I used to take that into school with me every day for about a year when I was ten) It’s my one book to rule them all πŸ˜‚

  
11. Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as an author?

I do and I am 😳 it’s the best thing I’ve ever done!

12. When did you get into reading?

My dad used to read to me every night and as soon as I could take over I did ☺️

13. What is your favourite classic book?

I’m not really one for the classics (I know that’s not okay) I did enjoy Bleak House by Dickens though so I’d go with that!

  
14. In school, what was your best subject?

English and Drama, so basically reading/ writing stories or acting them out lol

15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated, what would you do?

Erm, probably tell them I’d read it and let them get me something else but I probably wouldn’t admit to having hated it (people usually gift books that they love themselves and I’m waaaaay too non-confrontational for that πŸ™ˆ) 

16. What is a lesser known series that you know that is similar to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games?

This is such a random question! I dunno if I can think of any that are similar to them but I guess you could get yourself a DVD of Battle Royale if you want something like the hunger games!

  
17. What is a bad habit you always do while blogging?

I dunno, maybe doing tags I wasn’t tagged for 😳

18. What is your favourite word?

Troglodyte. Hands down. Troglodyte. 

19. Are you a nerd, dork or dweeb? Or all of the above?

I don’t think I’d refer to myself as any but I am a total fan-girl over many many things and I’m not afraid to show it!

20. Vampires of Fairies? Why?

Vampires. Vampires are cool and immortal and dangerous and fairies are…. Fairies. That said, I’ve read/watched many vampire based things and loved them (starting at The Strain and following the spectrum through to Twilight) and I can’t say I’ve had much to do with anything fairy based beyond Tinkerbell so maybe I could be won over

  
21. Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

Can’t say I’ve read much of either sadly but I’d go Shapeshifters because I’d rather be one!

22. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

Werewolves, mostly because they always seem to be pretty hot and I’ve not read books on either *sigh* Oh and Lupin was a werewolf 😍

23. Zombies or Vampires? Why?

Zombies! Becuase I LOVE The Walking Dead and I totally think I could make it in a zombie apocalypse 😊 but if you’re talking about what I’d rather be then it would obviously be Vampires because being a zombie would suck

  
24. Love triangle or forbidden love?

I’m happy with either if done right!

25. And finally: Full on romance or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?

I’m all for the action with a great love story thrown in 😊
I hope you enjoyed my answers and if you’d like to do the tag then I tag you! Xoxo

The High School Stereotypes Book Tag πŸ’„πŸˆ


I’ve been tagged to do this by MelanieΒ and I’m looking forward to giving it a go! Check out her blog – you’ll be glad that you did ☺️ My method for these tags is to go with whatever comes to kind first and not overthink it so if some of answers are a bit odd, that’s why lol

The rules are:

  1. Choose characters from your favourite books who fit these high school stereotypes.
  2. Tag as many people as you want to do the tag
  3. That’s it!

1. The Mean Girl

Β 

Isabel Lightwood in The Mortal Instruments – this is more a first impression than a lasting one and I actually really love her. But right off the bat I can easily imagine her turning to any non-Shadow Hunter and doing her very best ‘you can’t sit here’ in glorious mean girl perfection

2. The Dumb Jock

Β 

Emmett Cullen from Twilight – he’s the kind of dumb jock I’d wanna be friends with though, he could totally beat up my enemies for me 😊

3. The Bully

Β 

Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter books – I don’t think I have to explain this one. Is it okay that I kinda had a crush on him? No? I guess I didn’t then 😳

4. The Bad Boy

Β 

Ronan from the Raven Cycle – he’s just so bad and he really, really, really doesn’t care and it’s probably wrong but it makes him so hot lol if you haven’t read these books do it, do it now!

5. The Girl With The Bad Reputation

Β 

Clarke from the 100 – she’s a condemned criminal so I think that covers the bad reputation and I LOVE her, read the book and watch the show! Seriously… SERIOUSLY!

6. The Geek

Β 

Hermione from the Harry Potter books – if there was ever any doubt that geeks are cool then Hermione fixed that! She’s the best and there’s no reason for anyone to doubt it 😍

7. The Drama Geek

Β 

Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games – basically because she plays up to cameras and fakes a relationship to win votes so if that’s not a drama geek then I’m not sure what is (I’m English so this one may be going over my head) πŸ˜‹

8. The Band Geek

Merry and Pippin from Lord of the Rings – I just couldn’t think of anyone else but they do love singing and don’t care who knows it!

9. The Wannabe

Β 

Bella Swan from Twilight – her wanting to be a vampire is pretty much the story for the first three and a half books lol so wannabe just made me think of her!

10. The Stoner/Slacker

Β 

Robert Baratheon from Game of Thrones – he slacked off so badly that he screwed up the security of the throne and threw the whole realm onto turmoil – nuff said lol
I hope you liked my answers and I’d love to see yours – I tag everyone who would like to do this! Xoxo

Ultimate Harry Potter Book Tag

I found this tag on fandomsontherun and she kindly tagged any huge Harry Potter fans to do it so I am! Check out her blog, it’s really great ☺️

And now for the tag…

1. Favourite Book?

  

I always remember that first time I read this and I was sooooo shocked that Sirius wasn’t evil and Wormtail was Scabbers and just everything about it! I think it might even have been the first book I stayed up reading through the night 😱

2. Least favourite book?

  
This was a tough one but it basically comes down to Umbridge! I just hated her so much and I couldn’t bear being in her company lol 🐸

3. Favourite movie?

  

The Deathly Hallows part 2 adaptation was amazing! I was so excited for it to come out and I was blown away by it! I can’t even remember how many times I ended up going to the cinema, I just know it was worth every penny lol

4. Least favourite movie?

  

I just disliked the way they did goblet of fire πŸ˜ͺ. I felt that Fleur was badly cast and didn’t look or act right at all, some of the excitement that was so present in the book was just missing from the film, they cut out so many of my favourite little bits, the maze was just wrong and did anyone see the god awful haircuts they all had? πŸ’‡πŸ½

5. Favourite quote?

  
This is a tough one because I love so many but today I’d say this one! 😊

6. Favourite Weasley?

  

An obvious one but any other answer would be a lie!

7. Favourite female character?

  

Again an obvious one but at the same time I don’t think there is anyone else who even comes close!

8. Favourite villain?

  

Bellatrix was just so utterly perfectly evil. She didn’t even seem to have much motivation beyond just liking to be evil lol 

9. Favourite male character?

  

Okay, you get it, I just love the obvious ones but I can’t imagine any other answer being true!

10. Favourite professor?

  

I love Mcgonagall! She’s firm but fair, sometimes she’s a cat and she’s a total badass when it comes to the crunch 😻

11. Would you rather a) wash Snape’s hair or b) spend a day listening to Lockhart rant about himself?

  

I’d have to take Lockhart, I actually find him kinda funny and I ain’t touching those greasy locks for anything!

12. Would you rather duel a) an elated Bellatrix or b) an angry Molly?

  

I don’t happen to be evil, so though she may well whoop my ass, I don’t think Molly would actually kill me 😲

13. Would you rather travel to Hogwarts via the Hogwarts express or flying car?

  

This is a no brainer, apart from all the great reasons to want to take the Hogwarts express, that car had no air con and no snacks! Screw that!

14. Would you rather kiss Voldemort or give Umbridge a bubble bath?

  

I’d give her a bubble bath and drown her!

15. Would you rather ride a Hippogriffe or a Firebolt?

  

I can’t really imagine any way that sitting on a broom is comfortable at all plus I love Buckbeak 😍

16. Is there any character that you felt differently about in the movies?

  

I loved Molly in the books but she sets my teeth on edge in the movies! I just felt she was so annoying and over-acted and her voice was so irritating and I could go on but I’ll stop myself…

17. Is there a movie you proffered to the book?

No, I can’t really compare them like that. I love books and movies in such different ways that I just… Can’t…

18. Richard Harris or Michael Gambon as Dumbledore?

  

I loved them both but I think of Michael Gambon when I think of Dumbledore so I’ll go with that

19. Your top thing (person or event) that wasn’t in the movie that you wanted there the most?

  

The chase through Hogwarts at the end of The Half Blood Prince, I loved that part of the books so much, it might even be my favourite! I can’t believe they cut it and I can’t believe they made that awful explosion at the Weasleys’ house instead 😑

20. If you could remake any of the movies which would it be?

   

 
It’s a toss up becuase I felt both of these weren’t done right. I did enjoy Half Blood Prince despite the changes though so I guess I’d do Goblet of Fire because I actually find that one hard to watch 😁

21. Which house was your first gut feeling you’d be a parof?

  

I know everyone want to be in Gryffindor but I do think I’d fall in that category ☺️

22. Which house were you actually sorted into on Pottermore?

  

Boom! It’s for true πŸ’ƒπŸ»

23. Which class would be your favourite?

  

Defence Against the Dark Arts, obviously while Remus was there ideally but that’s the one I want to do!

24. Which spell do you think would be the most useful to learn?

  

And this says nothing about how clumsy I am… 😳

25. Which character do you think you’d instantly become friends with?

  

Fred and George! (This says nothing at all about the way I used to behave at school) πŸ˜‹

26. If you could own one of the three Hallows, which would it be?

  

I’m not entirely sure why anyone would want anything else! I don’t even think Harry should have tossed it lol ultimate power mwahahah (totally for good though)

27. Is there any aspect of the books you’d want to change?

  

Not Colin specifically lol but all the deaths at the end of the final book. I’m not saying they shouldn’t have happened, I just thought they deserved better. I wanted to know how they died, who they were protecting and how it went down. I hated just seeing the bodies of Lupin and Tonks and Fred and the rest and them never getting their final moment 😭

28. Favourite Marauder?

  

I’d go with Sirius, I just felt like he was so much fun at school and I would have liked to be his friend!

29. If you could bring one character back to life, who would it be?

  

This was so tough! But I just think that Sirius had such a crap time of it. His best friend died and no one knew the truth but him and then he was sent to Azkaban only to finally escape and have to live in secret stuck in that house he hated and then he just died in such a random way when he and Harry could have had so much together – I just felt that he deserved a chance at happiness 

30. Hallows or Horcruxes?

The Reading Habits Tag πŸ“š

  
Thanks to giovanna for tagging me! Check out her blog, it’s great! 😊

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

I’m a bit of a Sheldon  πŸ˜³ I have a spot on the couch and I don’t even like other people to sit there if I’m not there… I also take books up to bed too.

  
2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

 I used to do random bits of paper but when one of my besties found out I was writing a book she got me a lovely bookmark which I now treasure. It means a lot to me because she believed in me and it always makes me smile when I open a book and find it! 

  
3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop at the end of a chapter / after a certain amount of pages?

I tend to binge read so I’ll be cramming a book into every available moment when I’m into it. That may mean I end up stopping randomly half way through a page and doing the shifty sideways bookmark malarkey! But I prefer to finish a chapter, although if it’s a cliffhanger I’ll read another page or two, or three…

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?

 Much to the detriment of my clothes the answer is yes lol. I tend to hold my book away safely but then I’m not paying enough attention to the fork – mouth ratio and sadly it doesn’t always end well. I know I shouldn’t do it but I can’t always bear to put a book down for something as boring as dinner πŸ•

5. Multitasking: music or TV whilst reading?

I always have the TV on. Always. I find one thing alone doesn’t keep me occupied unless it’s really good (walking dead and game of thrones are pretty much the only shows I’ll give my full attention) and if a book sucks me in far enough then I’ll just block the TV out. But generally I can do both simultainiously and know exactly what’s going on in both. Maybe I’m odd but I’m okay with that 😊

6. One book at a time or several on the go?

One book to rule them all! (Shameless lotr reference) if I’m in then I’m in and I don’t really do dnf. I’ll force my way through regardless and reserve my opinion until the very end. But generally I just get obsessed and zoom through books one after another so quickly that I don’t really consider picking up anything else.

7. Read at home or everywhere?

Everywhere! Home, work, car and if I’ll toss it in my handbag wherever I’m going just in case some free time appears. I actually enjoy waiting rooms lol. 

  
8. Read aloud or silently in your head?

In my head. Reading aloud is just words but in my head there’s a whole world of people and voices and places going on! 

9. Do you read ahead or skip pages?

Never!!! Sometimes I put my hand over the bottom of the page during something tense so I can’t even skip a few lines. 

  
10. Breaking the spine or keeping it new?

I don’t particularly do either. I don’t bend my books back on themselves but I do open them – I’m not going to squint into the middle just to avoid a crease on the spine. 

11. Do you write in books?

Why would I?
