The Book Blogger Test

Katrina from Chased By My Imagination tagged me to answer some questions so here they are!

1) What are your top three book pet hates?

  • Bad language... especially when it is really unnecessary... which is most of the time. 
  • Modern book covers on classic works of literature. 
  • Writing in a book.  

2) Describe your perfect reading spot? My bed normally as I read at night but a cushy couch or chair works also. Comfort, you must understand, is key. :)

3) Tell us three book confessions

  • I always have to finish a book. Always. Thankfully I rarely start a book I wouldn't want to finish. 
  • I rarely read modern books. 
  • If you recommend a book to me... I may not read it. It takes recommendations by people whose judgement I trust on books to make me read their recommendation. I've made two exceptions to that and have been disappointed both times. A lot of you bloggers out there that I follow though I do trust their judgement like the ones listed below. Does that mean we'll enjoy all of the same books? No... but we enjoy a lot of the same books. 
4) When was the last time you cried during a book? As I've mentioned in a past post, the only book I have ever cried over is Bridge to Terabithia and I was very young so don't judge. ;) I just don't tend to get emotional over books... or movies/TV shows for that matter. 

5) How many books are on your bedside table? Just one: Gods and Generals, which by the way is really good so far. I'm also currently listening to the audiobook of North and South on my iPhone, which is on my bedside table so that counts too... right? ;) 

6) What is your favorite snack while reading? I don't eat while reading as I'm always afraid I'll get something on the book. However, I will drink tea while reading or perhaps water.  

7) Name three books you recommend to everyone? 
  • The Bible
  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  • The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien 
8) Show us a picture of your favorite bookshelf on your bookcase. I'm just showing you my whole bookcase because I'm not sure I have a favorite shelf. I know I don't have tons of books yet but I'm working my way up there! My family has over a thousand so they make up for my lack of books. :)

9) Describe how much books mean to you in just three words? Life, love, happiness. ;)

10) What is your biggest reading secret? I don't know. Sometimes I really slack off with my reading... especially during school.

  1. Aww I feel so honored you tagged me. Thank you so much :) Might try this if I have the time. Loved you answers! I like knowing more about other people. And yes, I hate writing in a book :(( Sometimes I'm forced to label them with my name for school and it makes me uncomfortable.

    1. No problem. :) I love reading your blog. :)

  2. Two of your book hates are also mine...I can't stand a lot of fowl language in a book and it really bothers me when I am listening to the audio version..(listening to Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy right now and it is filled with the F word and is hindering it's rating). I also hate when people write in books!! :) I am also curious as to why you don't read a lot of modern books?

    1. Why do I not read a lot of modern books? Well, to be blunt, 80% of the time they aren't as good as the classics so I don't bother unless I have a very high recommendation from somebody whose judgement I trust on books. There are modern books I enjoy though like the Harry Potter series or Dean Koontz's books.

  3. Thanks for tagging me in this blogger test! :) Same here about eating while reading; sometimes I can do it but it's a messy food item, I get pretty miffed when crumbs fall in between the pages and stuff so I try to avoid it :) Interesting that you rarely read modern titles!

    1. It always seems inevitable that if I'm eating something and it gets on the book it's a library book. :( Thanks for stopping by. :)

  4. These are great answers, thanks so much for taking part! :)
