Get To Know Me Tag

Monday, 11 September 2017


Hey everyone, I got this tag from the lovely Faye over at Daydreamers Thoughts, so go check out her post and show her some love! Today I'm doing the get to know me tag because I've been doing this blogging thing for nearly nine months but I don't think I've shared very much about my life beyond books. So on that note, lets start getting to know me with the book section of the tag...

Books

Can you stop reading at any time, or does it have to be a certain page or chapter?
As long I'm not in bed and falling asleep then I will always finish a chapter before putting my book down. If a book is separated into 'parts' then I'd much rather finish a part because that's where the author has deliberately broken up the book.  

Do you eat or drink anything whilst reading?
Drinking I suppose but I hate cracking the spine of a book so in order to keep it open I usually need two hands to actually be able to read.

Can you read listening to music or watching tv?
Honestly I could read through anything, I have to in my house. Dogs barking, people talking, every TV in the house being on... Music would be tame.

One book at a time or several at once?
One. I have to finish a book before I start another or I get my wires crossed or end up never going back to finish one.

Reading at home or everywhere?
Everywhere. Reading outside of my house would actually be easier.

Reading out loud or in your head?
In my head, reading out loud would take far too long.

Do you read ahead or skip pages?
Not since I was about ten.

Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
New. Broken spines aren't good for anyone or anything.

Do you write books or just read them?
I'm trying to write! And I do that by reading and thinking how cool it would be if someone was reading my book.

Five favorite books:
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

The last book that you read?
I just finished They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera
Currently reading Noah Can't Even by Simon James Green

  1. Love this idea! I may have to do one myself! I've only been blogging for a few weeks now and it seems like a great idea to do a post about me and what I love. It's nice to learn more about you!
