Hello lovelies!

So today I thought you can get to know me better and know my weird bookish facts. I have seen this around anywhere and I tag everyone to do it! It's so fun. So let's get started..

1. I always read before bed, it's the time I do most of my reading because I feel like I can get more reading done like that. I usually am always always tired before bed, so it doesn't work out great for me.

2. My favorite genre of books is definitely fantasy, but I haven't read much of it because I'm super intimidated by fantasy. I have some books on my radar that I'll definitely be reading soon, but it is scary still hahaha so if you have recommendations, help a sister out.

3. I hate mass market paperbacks, it is one of the most torturous feelings to try to read a mass market paperback without breaking or damaging the spine. It's the worst.

4. I like drinking coffee or tea while reading. I know so cliche

5. I don't own much hardbacks. 90% of my books are in paperback.

6. I always predict book endings and when I get them right, I get super mad at myself for spoiling myself.

7. I have never ever in my life reread a book since being an avid reader. Excluding my preteen reading.

8. When I get ready to read, I have a ritual of opening my goodreads on my laptop so I can update it every 2 seconds. If you don't have me on goodreads, you're missing on the fun that is my reading updates hahaha, so let's be friends!

9. I have a bookish instagram that I try WAY TOO HARD to keep up with and fail. I just am not a morning person so it's so hard for me to take good pictures of books to post them. Also, I have zero photography skills so if you have any tips for me, please tell me down below! If you would like to check it and give me a follow, it would be super appreciated♥

10. One series that I'm ashamed of not finishing yet is the HP series. I'm on book 7, don't judge. It's SO good, but I'm in a slump that is never ending!

11.  Reviewing books is so fun for me because it's an outlet for my thoughts on a book. I find it hard to read a book and not review it. I usually do that if I seriously don't like a book and would refrain from bashing it all over my blog. I feel bad - unless of course I receive it for review, then I state my honest opinion without trying to be rude.

12. I'm one of the few humans on this earth who didn't like Fangirl, who don't relate to Fangirl and never will. I found Cath to be weird and frustrating. The only thing that I like about it is the cover.

13. Although I own a lot of books, I rarely ever lend out books to people. They're too precious to be lent out and I if I did, which is rare, then I lend them out to very close friends.

14. I actually read more ebooks than physical ones. I always find myself craving to read a book that isn't on my shelves so I download it and read it instantly. That's why my books are rotting on my shelves and its a serious problem that I need help with.

15. I rarely ever buy my books from physical stores. I always buy them online because they're far more cheaper and offer an amazing variety of books.

16. Writing is one of my favorite hobbies and one of my dreams ever since I was a little girl was to write a book so I thought NaNoWriMo was an amazing opportunity. Being me, I started and reached up to 30k words, but didn't finish. I hope to win someday! Maybe this year when I'm more prepared.

17. I have a hard time listening to audiobooks, I always find myself spacing out and not even concentrating on what the narrator is saying. I can't do it. I don't know why they're such a thing lately, how do you guys focus with audiobooks? I can't just sit there and listen..

18. In bookstores, or online to be more exact, I find myself gravitating more towards books with pretty book covers. Let's be honest with ourselves here, we all love us some pretty book covers.

19. Most books that I read now because of the hype are just meh, I rarely ever ADORE a book that it's my favorite. So tell me some of your favorite books and maybe we can change that!

20. Matilda by Roald Dahl is THE book that got me into reading so much. I can't tell you guys how much that book means to me. It's probably the only book that I reread and finished in one sitting when I was a kid. It's the book that grew with me and remained my favorite through forever.

21. Most books that I absolutely adore make me ugly cry. If a book makes me ugly cry, then you just know its a good one. (extra fact..)

Do you share some of the facts as I do? I'd love to know and see your posts as well so link me to them if you do♥


  1. I so agree with you on #3--mass market paperbacks are literally THE. WORST. EVER.

    This is great! I giggled several times reading through your list, and agree with so many things you said! <3 Thanks for sharing!

    1. I know right?!! Why do they make them anyways? They look ugly and are a pain to read from.
      Aww thank you so much! You're so sweet♥

  2. Fantasy is awesome but it can be a very scary genre lol
    Cool tag! I should try this.

    1. YES! It takes a toll on you to imagine fantasy as well and to grasp the world.
      YOU SHOULD!! And be sure to tweet me links or something when you do♥

  3. Hahaha no. 6 was super cute! I've actually never reread a book either!

    I didn't realise I wasn't following you via GFC :( I just changed that!

    1. Hahaha really? I think I'm quite dumb for doing that to myself really. Phew I'm glad I'm not alone on this♥
      Aww you're adorable. Thank you lovely!

  4. Girl we have soooo much in common! I do most of my reading at night as well, especially since my three year old requires most of my attention lol. OMG yes, I'm such a cover whore! I definitely judge books by their covers, and I am not ashamed to admit it! I can't reread books because the anticipation and suspense of the novel is gone. How can you get excited for something you know has already happened? It's just impossible for me to do. Oh and I'm the same way with fantasy. I just really started reading more fantasy in 2014, and there are some titles I really want to tackle, (The Name of The Wind for example) but some of them are so damn intimidating. I'm currently reading Flamecaster and I'm already feeling like I may put it to the side. * sigh *

    1. Aww this is adorable, I didn't know you had a child! I love love kids. HAHAHA YES!!! Please thank god I'm not the only one who admits it, who doesn't really? It's beautiful to look at and looks good on your shelves, what's not to love? What?? Whyy? I know fantasy can be really intimidating, but I've heard amazing things about Flamecaster
      Thank you for stopping by♥

  5. I love your layout of your blog it is so pretty!xx aquateraa.blogspot.co.uk

  6. I love all of your answers! I know exactly what you mean when it comes to those mass paperback books. I want to be one of those readers who doesn't mind a little wear because the story doesn't change if the spine is bent, but I just can't! I do most of my book shopping online to because I'm just a cheap person, haha. Hope you get out of that slump soon so you can finish HP!

    1. Oh my god I have tried a billion times to be one of those too, but I just can't!! Thank you for stopping by♥ Hahaha we're just amazing I can totally relate. Aww I hope too as well :( thank you Alicia!

  7. So much YES to this list, girl! I mean, I just love art too much to not be a cover judge haha. And I ALWAYS buy my books online (unless I someone gives me a giftcard to Barnes & Noble or something) because I'm too cheap to actually be buying from stores lol.

    Ooh, and I love writing too! I haven't written in awhile though (I BLAME SCHOOL FOR TAKING ALL MY TIME) but I really want to finish my story this summer.

    1. THANK YOU! Yes, me too, that's what I'm saying! I never buy from stores except if it's a book that I'm glad I found and I can't pass the opportunity then this would be the only exception. Our stores don't offer a variety and aren't updated to new releases like most stores are so.. more incentive not to buy from there.

      ME TOOOOOO CARI! hahaha, omg school is killer! I really hope you get around to finishing it♥ Thank you for stopping by!


You comments make my day! So thank youuu :) <3
