The Reader Confession Tag

Woo! This should be fun!

Have you ever damaged a book?

Haha, yes! I remember when I was reading Cinder by Marissa Meyer I was so into it that I took it out to eat with my family at a Mexican restaurant. I can’t remember if it was on the table or if I was reading it when the the glass of water spilled…

How long does it take you to read a book?

Oye. That REALLY depends. Since I’ve been in school and are an English Literature major, books that aren’t assigned can be anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks, maybe longer (because school is always first, kids). If I’m assigned a book, I’ll always try to make the deadline. Since I’ve been out, I’ve been averaging about 4 daysish to 2 weeks per book, depending on the length and how into it I am.

I’m not the kind of reader who feels pressured to finish books quickly, as I like to really enjoy them. But, it really just depends on the length and how into it I am. I will often read a chapter or two, set a book down, do something else, and come back to it.

Books that you haven’t finished?

Ha! Okay:

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Eldest by Christopher Paolini

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I’m sure there are a lot more, as I went through a phase in middle school where it seemed no books were really pleasing me, but those are what I can think of right now,

Hyped/popular books you don’t like?

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

We Were Liars by E Lockhart

Is there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading?

Not really. There are some genres I want to explore that I don’t think I would call up my mom and tell her I’m reading and have a chat about it, but I frankly don’t care what people think, haha.

How many books do you own?

No idea. Sorry. Maybe, like, 25 to 30 right now? I’m about to move, so I purged a lot.

Are you a fast or a slow reader?

Medium, I guess. Like I said above, it really just depends. Rarely do I finish a book in a day, though.

Do you like to buddy read?

I have never tried it, but would like to!

Do you read better in your head or out loud?

In my head, most definitely. In my head, I can do whatever I want.

If you were only allowed to own one book, what would it be and why?

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger.

I feel that book has a lot of things to learn from it, most of it just doing the opposite of what the main character does. But, I feel it has a lot of value, and I think it’s a book everyone should read.

  1. Haha, there are definitely some books that I don’t call my mom to tell her I’m reading, too. And I wasn’t a big fan of The Girl on the Train either.

    I would love to do a buddy read sometime if you’re interested! 🙂
