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:

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.

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?

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.

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.

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

34. Do you read while in the car?
Not really because I get nauseous.

38. Where is your favourite place to read?

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

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