Reading!

Hi Everyone! I am back! After about a month.

From very early days, reading has been such a great hobby of mine. I love reading and am very passionate about the good novels and books that I read!

This year I challenged myself to read two books every month, and so far I have managed to do this! Reading provides an escape and a different outlook on the world. Your eyes are opened to the lives of cowardly, brave, sad, ignorant protagonists that will not only provide an entertaining story but also life lessons.

I thought I would follow along with this bookworm tag that I found online –from here

Do you remember how you developed a love for reading?

Not exactly – possibly seeing my friends and family being inspired by what they read and their impressive vocab as well!

Where do you usually read?

Anywhere that I can! I am one of those people who don’t necessarily need quiet atmosphere (preferable though)!

Do you prefer to read one book at a time or several at once?

One book at a time! Unless they are completely unrelated genres and have completely different stories.

What is your favourite genre?

Anything suspense, thriller, science, adventure. Any book that doesn’t drag on basically 🙂 I also like Classics – Novels like Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre

Is there a genre you will not read?

Not necessarily, I am open to anything.

Do you have a favourite book?

Not really, anything by Matthew Reilly should do though!

What is your least favourite book?

I appreciate all books written, but some don’t even deserve a mention 😛

What is the longest book you have ever read?

I have read the entire Malory Towers Series and A series of Unfortunate Events (that would tally up to a lot!)

What was the last book you bought?

The chemist – Stephenie Meyer – haven’t gotten up to reading it though!

Do you prefer library books or buying books?

Library definitely! It’s there for free, why not! and Also I have no real space to store the amount of books I read.

What are you currently reading?

Two actually:

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

The power of Now by Ekhart Tolle

Where do you buy your books?

Whenever I can find a good deal, more often than not, I try to get my hands on a physical copy – from a store like Dymocks.

Do you ever pre-order books?

Rarely.

Do you keep your read and to-be-read books together?

They are on the same shelf in two different piles 🙂

Have you ever donated books?

Yeah – to libraries or even to friends and family relatives.

  1. How are you liking Eleanor and Park? I read that one last summer and I LOVED it, and I’m actually back on a Rainbow Rowell kick this month (I just finished Attachments, which I didn’t think was as good as Eleanor and Park, but I still liked it). I think she’s a great author for easy reading.

    1. I haven’t reached the end yet, only a hundred pages in! It’s great and I can see why heaps of people love it, but not exactly my type of genre! But I 100% agree with you, the novels are entertaining and have a harmless nature to it! Thanks for your comment! Let me know any other book suggestions! I also liked hush hush, have you read that series?

      1. I have not! I may have to give it a try, I’m always looking for new books to read that are even semi-related to ones I already like.
