We all have something that we say is true or happened but in reality, it never happened. Trust me, we all have done it. I saw this tag done by Lindsey @ apeiceofparadis and I was interested in doing it! Make sure you check out Lindsey blog because it is amazing! But anyway, let’s get on with the tag.
Have you ever damaged a book?
Yes, and it breaks my heart to say that. It really wasn’t my fault in the first place. We had this really bad rain storm and I didn’t have my book bag at the bus stop. My copy of The Lucky One by: Nicholas Sparks got destroyed.
Have you ever damaged a borrowed book?
Nope. I rarely even borrow books from other people or the library. I rarely even let other people borrow my books. They are my babies. But I let one of my friends borrow my copy of Clockwork Princess and now it has Hot Fries stains on it. I also let another friend borrow my Shatter Me series and her highlighter left stains on the bottoms of the books.
How long does it take you to read a book?
Depends on the book. Typically, it takes me about three days and that is with a good amount of free time. If I have a lot going on, about a week. Sometimes it takes longer and sometimes it takes less time.
Books that you haven’t finished?
I don’t think I have anything for this question. I finish all of the books I start. I think I started and didn’t finish the book Matched by: Allie Condie. There probably are a few more that I am not remembering at the moment.
Hyped/popular books you didn’t like only thought were OK?
Quite honestly, I thought that the Percy Jackson series was only okay. I liked the books and all but I thought there would be more in them. I understand that they are middle school books but nothing was special with them.
Is there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading?
Nope. I always let people know if I have read the book and my feelings about the book. Anytime I go to our bookstore, I walk around, literally saying, “I have this book and this one. Never read this one.” I’m not crazy okay?
How many books do you own?
That is actually a good question. I was actually wondering that myself the other day. Let’s see, I have exactly 228 books. I have a little problem with buying books. I’ll be the first to admit it. Something about owning all of these books actually makes me feel like I have a purpose in life.
Are you a fast or slow reader?
Like I said in a previous question, it depends on the book. If the book has pretty hard vocabulary, I read pretty slow. But all of my friends tell me I read pretty fast. I guess I would read pretty fast since I can read close to 100 pages in a hour.
Do you like to buddy read?
Never have and never will. I like to read a book at my own pace. Reading with a buddy always slows me down and I tend to forget more information when I do.
Do you read better in your head or out loud?
In my head. Whenever I read out loud, I feel like I don’t comprehend it as much and I feel like I read pretty slow. My mom reads with her lips moving and I think it is the weirdest thing in the whole world. In my head, I can read faster and I hear the characters voices more clearly.
If you were only allowed to own one book, what would it be and why?
I would have to own City of Lost Souls by: Cassandra Clare. This is one of my favorite books in the whole entire world and it is basically perfection. I can read this book over and over again, even though the book comes in the middle of the series.
Since I have seen a bunch of people do this tag, I can’t keep up with who has been tagged and who has not been tagged. But, if you have read all this way, consider yourself tagged!
