The Book Blogger Test

IMG_9355

Hello everyone! I am here today with a tag post (I know, I don’t do many of these). My friend over @CelineReads is doing one too. Check out her blog if you want to see her version. 🙂

Today’s tag is The Book Blogger Test from Brin’s Book Blog!

WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE BOOK PET PEEVES?

  1. When the summary on the back/flap of a book reveals too much about the actual plot (hello, spoilers!!)
  2. Books that have too much mean girls high school drama type of thing
  3. If the setting of the book is too vague… I need descriptions to be able to visualize.

DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT READING SPOT

On some sort of lounge chair that I can kind of lay out or sit on. Chair must come equipped with a blanket and pillow to… Also, preferably next to a window.

TELL US THREE BOOK CONFESSIONS

  1. I haven’t read the Hunger Games.
  2. I don’t adventure outside of the genres I’m really comfortable with reading very often (i.e. contemporary, fantasy etc.)
  3. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to read all the books I own, but I don’t want to stop buying books either.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED DURING A BOOK?

I think I teared up while reading The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord; however, I honestly don’t remember the last time I full on cried while reading.

HOW MANY BOOKS ARE ON YOUR BEDSIDE TABLE?

None, I’ll tell you a secret… I put books on my bed next to me, yes I like to sleep with my books. I have 3 on my bed right now.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SNACK TO EAT WHILE YOU’RE READING?

None, usually just water.

NAME THREE BOOKS YOU WOULD RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE

  1. Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell
  2. Just One Day – Gayle Forman
  3. The Wrath and the Dawn – Renee Ahdieh

SHOW US A PICTURE OF YOUR FAVOURITE BOOKSHELF ON YOUR BOOKCASE

  1. I love your bookshelves!! They’re so beautiful ❤

    Haha, I always take my hardcover dust jackets off when I read so that I don't damage them in any way while I'm reading.

    Fangirl and The Wrath and the Dawn are both on my TBR list – I'm hoping to read both of them soon! 🙂

  2. ^^I always take off my dustjackets when I read! It’s like the most precious part of my hardcovers and I have to protect them with all my life haha!

    And ugh the synopsis on the flap and back cover of books always reveal too much so I never read them

  3. Spoilers on the back of the book are the worst but I also don’t like when there are only quotes from people who’ve enjoyed the book. I’m sure there has to be some way to give information on the story without revealing everything!

    And the three books you recommend to everyone? Three of my all time favorites, so I definitely agree. 🙂

  4. I also sleep with my books on my bed XD It’s a comfort to have something familar and friendly kind of “guarding” me while I was asleep… I don’t really read hardcovers, but when I do I also don’t take off the dust jacket. And your bookshelf omg it’s so pretty!<3
