I’m not sure exactly what we’re testing, or how I pass (or fail), but I was tagged by Laura at Laura Plus Books last week. I’m not tagging anyone, but feel free to jump in if you want to answer the questions.
What are your top three book pet peeves?
Switching between first- and third-person perspectives, abrupt cliffhangers as a lazy way to hook readers for the next book, and love triangles.
Describe your perfect reading spot.
A comfy oversized chair with good lighting and total silence!
Tell us three book confessions.
I can only think of one… I’ll check out a library copy of a book I own. (Yes, I own it so I can read it any time I want, but if the library happens to have a copy available, then why risk something happening to my own copy?)
When was the last time you cried during a book?
Last month, while reading A Monster Calls.
How many books are on your bedside table?
I don’t have one. But I do have seven books sitting next to my usual spot on the couch.
What is your favorite snack whilst you’re reading?
I don’t typically eat while reading. Something not messy, for sure.
Name three books you would recommend to everyone.
None, because there’s no one book that everyone will love.
Show us a picture of your favorite bookshelf on your bookcase.
I actually got new bookshelves for my birthday! But since I haven’t started moving my books around, here’s a picture of my old shelves… yeah, it’s a little crowded over there.
Write how much books mean to you in just three words.
Vessels for magic.
What is your biggest reading secret?
That I’d rather read than socialize? Oh, wait, that’s not a secret…
Some of these were really hard, especially the confessions one… and the secret, which just feels like another word for confession (it’s not a secret anymore if I put it on my blog, is it?). Anyway, since I shortchanged you, feel free to ask me anything in the comments. It’ll be like a bookish game of Truth or Dare… without the dares.
