Hello fellow bookworms 🙂
I hope you’re having a good weekend!
Since I have quite a few followers now, I thought it would be a good idea to hop on the ‘Get To Know Me’ tag. For all of you who’d like to dip your toe into my personal life, this one is for you.
Why don’t you tell me a few things about you in the comments? I’d love to get to know you all a bit better!
Thank you to my bookish friend Ash at ForTheLoveOfBooks for tagging me! You should go check her out, she’s lovely!
Can you stop reading at any time, or does is have to be a certain page or chapter?
I definitely HAVE to stop at the end of a chapter. I can’t leave the book until I’ve finished a section (stop here now Sarah – starts the next chapter).
Do you eat or drink anything whilst reading?
I don’t always, but I am partial to a hot chocolate and cookie.
Can you read listening to music or watching TV?
Hmm – not really. I read a lot when my husband is playing on his console, but I’m not watching it.
One book at a time or several at once?
One at a time mostly, sometimes I start a book and then a NEW shiny one releases and I HAVE to buy it and read it (sorry not sorry).
Reading at home or everywhere?
Generally at home, but if I’m on holiday I read by the pool or on the beach etc.
Reading out loud or in your head?
Absolutely in my head, I couldn’t concentrate reading out loud.
Do you read ahead or skip pages?
Nope nope nope! But my husband always looks at the end of a book and grins to tease me!
Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
I’m a spine breaker, I love a worn well loved book. I don’t know how people read properly without breaking it in a bit.
Do you write books or just read them?
I have always been an avid reader, but I do write. I’ve been working on a YA book for the last few years.
Five favourite books:
Harry Potter series – J.k Rowling (I can’t choose just one!)
A Court Of Thorns And Roses – Sarah J.Maas
