Another Sunday, another book tag.
I was tagged by Laura from @TheCornerofLaura to do this tag, so make sure you show them some love!
What book has been on your shelf the longest?
This was my favorite series when I was in elementary school and I’m pretty sure I still have a copy floating around somewhere.
What is your current read, your last read and the book you’ll read next?
Current Reads | Last Read
And I’m not really sure what I want to read next? I might start a reread of the Scythe series before I pick up The Toll.
What book did everyone like, but you hated?
I know so many people loved this (and I might give book 2 a shot – who knows), but I thought Jude was pretty weak for most of the book and Cardin was such a whiny baby.
What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably won’t?
Any classic really, I just have virtually no drive to read them.
What book are you saving for retirement?
I think that this is a book I’ll need to fully focus on, so I might try and pick it up the next time I take a staycation from work and I’m in the mood for some dark academia.
Last page: read it first, or wait ’til the end?
I typically wait till the end, but if a book is loosing my interest sometimes I’ll skim the end to see if it’s worth continuing.
Acknowledgement: waste of paper and ink, or interesting aside?
I like reading acknowledgements, but I do skip them quite often too.
Which book character would you switch places with?
I think It’d be fun to switch places with Evie O’Neil. Get to experience a bit of magic and have a great group of friends, what more could I ask for.
Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life? (place, time, person?)
Not really. I obviously have favorite books, but nothing that I assocaite with a time or place.
Name a book that you acquired in an interesting way.
I don’t think I have any interesting stories related to my books. They’re all either bought or gifts.
Have you ever given a book away for a special reason to a special person?
Which book has been with you most places?
I don’t really carry physical books around much, but my Harry Potter books probably.
Any “required reading” you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad two years later?
The only required reading I’ve reread were books I liked to begin with.
Used or brand new?
Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?
How oddly specific, but no.
Have you ever seen a movie you liked more than the book?
Tv shows yes (The 100, Vampire Diaries) but I can’t think of a movie off the top of my head.
Have you ever read a book that’s made you hungry, cookbooks included?
Who is the person whose book advice you’ll always take?
My sister. We have pretty identical tastes, appropriate for identical twins.
Is there a book out of your comfort zone (e.g., outside your usual reading genre) that you ended up loving?
I do gravitate toward historical books that don’t have some sort of magical element, I do not like books with a heavy religious focus, and I do not typically read plays, but this is such a fantastic story and a must read.
