I was tagged by the lovely Ashleigh over at For the Love of Books and by the lovely Jackie over at Bookworm Cafe! I’m so unbelievably excited to do this book, it sounds so much fun and I’ve been blogging for over a year but you all still don’t really know much about me so here we go!
Can you stop reading at any time, or does it have to be a certain page or chapter?
I have to stop on a chapter! I hate stopping in between chapters because I always lose where I was on the page, and I just feel so much better being at a chapter!
Do you eat or drink anything whilst reading?
Not really! Normally I’m just completely engrossed in reading!
Can you read listening to music or watching TV?
I can listen to music but I much prefer to sit in silence and immerse myself.
One book at a time, or several at once?
It depends! I normally read several at once because my TBR is drowning me haha!
Reading at home or everywhere?
EVERYWHERE! Literally if I have even a second to read my book, you can guarantee I’ve already picked it up.
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently in my head. I get tongue tied when reading out loud!
Do you read ahead, or skip pages?
I don’t! Well sometimes if a character is in a predicament I panic and might skip ahead to see if their name is there….but we have to….right??
Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
KEEPING IT NEW. I can’t cope with breaking the spines, the books are like my children! I can’t hurt them!
Do you write books, or just read them?
I just read them, I don’t have enough talent to write them.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Matilda by Roald Dahl
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
