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?
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.
Well, that was super fun! Thanks to Sara @ The Bibliophagist for tagging me!
