Because I’m too lazy to draft reviews of the books I’ve recently read (what a great book blogger you are, Kate), here’s another book tag! This one comes from Bianca over at The Ultimate Fangirl!
Time to confess!
1) Have you ever damaged a book?
Oh God, yes. I’m not proud of it. When I was younger, I would take my Harry Potter books into the bath with me and read while having a soak. Naturally, the books got wet.
2) Have you ever damaged a borrowed book?
IN MY DEFENSE, I WAS VERY DRUNK.
3) How long does it take you to read a book?
It depends! If I adore the book and I have nothing to do for work or school (and depending on how much I love it, sometimes even if I do have tons to do for work or school) I can finish it in one sitting. I remember coming from school to find my copy of Deathly Hallows had arrived in the mai and flopping down on my bed to read it. When I finally finished and looked up from the book, the sun was rising, I was still wearing my school uniform, and my yaya was cooking breakfast downstairs.
Needless to say, I didn’t get a lot done at school that day.
4) Books that you haven’t finished?
HA. HA. HA.
5) Hyped/popular books you didn’t like?
I’m gonna be honest. I hate Sarah J. Maas’s stuff. Can’t stand it. After hearing it be all hyped up, I tried reading Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Ruin and found it so trite and boring that I didn’t care to read the rest of the series. And the lack of diversity doesn’t help things any. Mediocre writing plus Whitey McWhite everywhere plus the only POC characters being killed off? Hard pass.
6) Is there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading?
Nope. I vet my books thoroughly and carefully and even if I end up not liking something, I’m honest about it. Why should I be ashamed of the things I read?
7) How many books do you own?
According to my Excel spreadsheet, 186. But! That doesn’t yet include the stuff I bought at the Big Bad Wolf sale, new books I recently bought, and the books on my Kindle.
In conclusion, I am trash.
8) Are you a fast or a slow reader?
Again, it depends! See #3. Generally though, I think I’m a fast reader.
9) Do you like to buddy read?
Honestly, no. I feel like it’s too much added pressure, and I’ve already got enough of that in my life!
10) If you were only allowed to own one book, what would it be and why?
Tagging the following!
But feel free to do this tag anyway if you wanna, and leave a link in the comments!
