The Fifty Bookish Questions Tag

book tag, book questions, books to read, book recommendations, book blog, book blogger,


I am really enjoying doing book tags so whilst I am making slow progress in my current read I thought I would do another one! Here is the fifty bookish questions tag:

1.       What was the last book you read?

I’m currently reading Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. The last book I finished was Fairy Tail volume 1. 


2.       Was it a good one?

Yes, I reviewed it here.


3.       What made it good?

Comedy, fantasy, magic.


4.       Would you recommend it to other people?

I would recommend it to those who like fantasy/magic but beware of the sexism.


5.       How often do you read?

It depends. At the moment I’m reading every day.


6.       Do you like to read?

I love to read! It is one of my favourite things, it makes me feel relaxed and so many emotions.


7.       What was the last bad book you read?

The last book I read that I didn’t like was The Graces by Laure Eve.


8.       What made you dislike it?

I didn’t like really any of the characters or the story. I reviewed it here.


9.       Do you wish to be a writer?

Anyone who writes is a writer! Alongside my blog I also write creatively. I hope to be a published author one day.


10.   Has any book every influenced you greatly?

The first book that comes to mind is Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. It showed me that any type of writing is valid.


11.   Do you read fan fiction?

Not really. I’ve only read a little fan fiction.


12.   Do you write fan fiction?

No, I actually find it harder to write fan fiction than my own ideas!


13.   What’s your favourite book?

I have three: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.


14.   What’s your least favourite book?

I don’t really have a least favourite. There are a few books that I haven’t enjoyed this year so far. My least favourite book that I still currently own would be The Graces by Laure Eve.


15.   Do you prefer physical books or ready on a device (like a kindle)?

I don’t really mind but I do love kindle because they do some great deals.


16.   When did you learn to read?

I don’t remember!

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.

Death Note!

I will read anything that Maria V. Snyder writes.


20.   What is your favourite genre?

Fantasy.


21.   Who is your favourite character in a book series?

There are so many! A few of my favourites from Harry Potter are Hermione, Ron and Snape.


22.   Has a book ever transported you somewhere else?

All the time. But magically? No, I have never suddenly been somewhere else in real-life, although that would be very cool.


23.   Which book do you wish had a sequel?

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell!


24.   Which book do you wish DIDN’T have a sequel?

None that I can think of.


25.   How long does it take you to read a book?

It depends on the book, between a couple of days and a lot longer.


26.   Do you like when books become movies?

If they’re done right.


27.   Which book was ruined by its movie adaptation?

I wouldn’t say ‘ruined’ but I feel that the Beautiful Creatures movie has made the books seem less appealing when the books are absolutely amazing. The concept is just something that was difficult to portray on screen which led the film to be confusing.


28.   Which movie has done a book justice?

The Hunger Games movies or The Harry Potter ones.


29.   Do you read newspapers?

I haven’t read a newspaper in years, I tend to watch the news on television.


       30: Do you read magazines?

              Sometimes, I used to get Official Nintendo Magazine and Neo (a manga/anime magazine) a lot but I don’t really get any magazines now.


31.   Do you prefer newspapers or magazines?

Magazines.


32.   Do you read while in bed?

Yes, it is my favourite place to read and where I get most of my reading done.


33.   Do you read while on the toilet?

No.


34.   Do you read while in the car?

Not really because I get nauseous.


35.   Do you read while in the bath?

No.


36.   Are you a fast reader?

It depends on the book. When I get really into a book I will read through it quite quickly but I’m not a fast reader compared to a lot of people.


37.   Are you a slow reader?

Sometimes.


38.   Where is your favourite place to read?

                My bed.


39.   Is it hard for you to concentrate while you read?

Yes, my mind finds it really difficult to concentrate apart from sometimes when I get really into a book but it takes a while for that to happen.


40.   Do you need a room to be silent while you read?

At home, yes but when I am out, no surprisingly, I can tune it out.

My dad!

             I don’t really re-read books but I am currently re-reading the Harry Potter series with the illustrated editions.


      48. Which books do you consider “classics”?

             Popular books that describe society in some way but they can be old or more recent.


     49. Which books do you think should be taught in every school?

            I think that there should be some sections for YA books because they face contemporary issues and they can sometimes be more enjoyable to read than some traditional texts.

           None. 

I tag anyone who would like to do this tag and please link me to your answers!

Rapid Fire Book Tag

This is a book tag created by Kate from GirlReading (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-46EzDWdSY). There are a series of book related questions to answer so let’s go:
Q: E-Book or Physical Book?  A: E-book, I know this is a controversial answer but I love my kindle so much! It is light to hold, keeps my page open and tells me an estimate of how much longer I have left in the book which helps motivate me to keep reading.
Q: Paperback or Hardback?  A: I don’t really have a preference!
Q: Online or In-Store Book Shopping?  A: I love shopping in a book store. Being surrounded by books is one of my favourite places. I can look at all of the different books available and choose whichever is available at the time. I often find books that I wasn’t originally planning on buying!
Q: Trilogies or Series? A: I love series because then there are more books to read, as long as the books still continue to be great and there is enough story to last across more books.
Q: Heroes or Villains? A: Heroes but I do l…

Book Buddy Read with Eleanor May

I have wanted to buddy read with someone for a while. Buddy reading is where you and someone else read the same book around the same time and discuss it. However, I didn’t really have anyone who had the same reading tastes as me. I have become good friends with Eleanor from http://www.eleaanormay.com/ and we decided to buddy read!
I am so excited to read a book with her and if any of you want to join in please feel free to. The book we are reading is: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare!
Neither of us have read the Mortal Instruments series before and it is such a popular series. From what I know of this series, it follows teenagers who hunt demons. I was accidentally spoiled with one plot point that occurs later in the story but I am hoping it won’t affect my reading of this book very much. I am really looking forward to discovering this series with a friend.
Have any of you ever done a buddy read?
You can buy City of Bones here: Amazon UK, Audible UK, Amazon US, Audible US, Book Depositor…

Five Things I Learnt From My Internet Detox

I just finished doing 48 hours without internet in aid of Cancer Research UK. Here are the things that I learnt during this time.

1.It is ok to use the internet sometimes 

I often feel bad that I use the internet as much as I do. I think that I should be doing other things instead. However, I have realised that it is ok to use the internet. It is ok to spend time on social media, post things and talk to others, as long as you are not spending too long on there or spending time on social media or accounts that make you feel bad about yourself.

2.Without internet you can relive some good old times
Not having access to internet 24/7 reminded me of when I was younger and we literally did not have access to internet 24/7. We had to spend our time in other ways. The one activity that I spent most of my time doing was playing video games. I used to love spending time playing the same game over and over again and a lot of the games I never even completed because they were too difficult for me bu…
