I was tagged by Stephanie from Bookfever for this book blogger test. I don’t do tags often, but I liked the questions, so here we go:
What are your top three book hates?
-A fantasy or dystopian book with a lacking world-building. For those two genres I feel like it’s vital to provide a good background story and descriptions to understand what is going on.
-Dumb, dependent and judging main characters. Some characters are SO stupid it hurts. When they says things that don’t make sense..-After reading a book that was filled with this: self created swear words that don’t make sense. I also dislike it when they are repeatedly used. I get it, it’s your favorite word, now stop using it every sentence or keep your mouth shut.
Describe your perfect reading spot.
Some place comfortable. I always like lying down on my bed with a lot of pillows in my back and the sun shining in my face.
Tell us five book confessions. (It's three, but I want to do five, haha)
-I always buy paperbacks, because I find them easier to read and they are cheaper, so I can buy more books.
-Some people find summer the perfect time for contemporary reads. For me, it’s picking up huge fantasy books. I don’t know what it is, but I always have a fantasy mood in the summer.
-I can read EVERYWHERE (okay, there are limits like I don’t read under the shower, but you get what I mean.) I don’t need silence; better yet, I prefer to have at least music on the background. When it’s quiet I only seem to focus on little noises and that bothers me.
-I love re-reading and do it often.
-I always read several books at the same time.
When was the last time you cried while reading?
I hardly cry. I do get teary eyes, but full on crying is something that never happens. I think the last book that gave some tears on my cheek was Tiger Lily and my re-read of The book thief.
How many books on your bedside?
None, I don’t have a bedside.
What is your favorite snack while reading?
I don’t like to eat while reading, because I’m afraid to make stains on the pages.. But I always like to snack some milk/dark chocolate.
Name three books you would recommend to anyone.
3? Okay, so I’m going to cheat and I’m going to give you 3 stand-alone recommendations. I think I can do that:
-Markus Zusak – The book thief.
-Jodi Lynn Anderson – Tiger Lily.
-Juliet Marillier – Heart’s blood.
Show us a picture of your favorite bookshelf on your bookcase.
That is difficult, because I have quite some shelves and I love them all. But here is a picture I also posted on my Instagram with some of my favorite books: (I’ve already changed the look of the shelf, haha, I like to switch around)
Write how much books mean to you in three words.
Very easy: EVERYTHING!
What is your biggest reading secret?
I don’t have secrets. I’m never ashamed for the books I read and I think you know most of my reading things.
