Book Blogger Test Tag// A Book that Made Me Cry & Bookish Pet Peeves

Hi everyone! I haven’t done a book tag in a while but I’m excited about this one. Thank you to Jacquie @Rattle the Stars for nominating me. Her answers to these questions were great! Please go check out her blog. 😊

The Rules

Thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
Answer the questions asked on this post — don’t stress it’s quick!
Nominate and notify some peeps. 5 preferred. (I tagged 6)

The Questions

1. What are your 3 bookish pet peeves?

  • Writing that is ‘telling’ rather than ‘showing.’
  • Insta- love
  • A character that is unaware of their good looks

2. Name a perfect reading spot. 

Outside when the sun is out, or inside on the couch.

3. Give 3 reading confessions. 

  • Although not always, I judge a book by it’s cover 📚
  • I don’t make long lists for my monthly TBRs because I’m a mood reader. I usually set a list of one or two books I must read that month and pick up the other books based on what I want to read at the moment
  • While reading, I sometimes quickly revisit the previous pages (or go through the previous events in my head) because I’ll forget if I don’t

4. When was the last time you cried during a book? 

Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. I really liked the writing style of this book.❤️ I thought it had a powerful effect.

5. Number of books on your bedside table? 

Two. The book I’m currently reading and the next one I plan to read; To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, and Shatter Me.

6. Favourite reading snack? 

I don’t usually eat while reading because if I do, I will probably spill or smudge something on my book 😅 However, occasionally I will eat lunch while reading.

7. What are 3 books you’d recommend to anyone? 

It’s really difficult to recommend only three books. I’ve narrowed my list to these four even though there are many other great ones.

8. Provide a picture of your bookshelves.

Some of these books are from when I was younger and are not YA novels. Also, I recently bought books and some of them are on my bookshelves right now. I have seven more books coming! This purchase has been my first ever double digits book haul, and I’m excited to post a book haul soon!

9. How much do books mean to you in 3 words? 

A whole lot! Reading is great in so many ways. I wrote a post about why I love reading. Click here if you would like to read it. 💖

10. Biggest reading secret? 

Ahh, I’m sorry to the readers who love these books.
I’ve only read the first three books of the Harry Potter series, although I might consider continuing the series in the future. Also, I’ve never read the Percy Jackson series because I don’t have an interest in Greek mythology.

  1. Lovely answers for this tag – and your bookshelf looks so pretty! 😀
    I am not a fan of insta-love either, it always frustrates me because that never happens in real life.
    I hope you’re loving To All The Boys, I really loved this book and the entire series, such a sweet read with adorable characters, ahhh. I can’t wait to watch the movie soon 😀 Also can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the Shatter Me book, I enjoyed that one too 🙂
    Happy reading! 😀

    • Thank you Marie! I agree, I also feel like insta love is unrealistic. Ahh I just finished rereading To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (I read it for the first time 3-4 years ago) and I loved it!! It’s so cute. The characters had their flaws at times but that just made them more realistic! I actually just wrote a review on the book. Also I just watched the movie and it was so good too. I hope you love the movie 🙂 I really hope they make a second movie 😍
      Im currently reading Shatter Me. I really love the poetic writing style!

  3. I feel like HP seems to be the series that people expect all bookworms to have read before, but if the story doesn’t call to you, definitely don’t force yourself. There are plenty of other wonderful books to read anyways! 😊 And yes, I judge books by their covers — especially when I’m browsing a bookstore, the first thing that pulls me to a book is its cover, and then I read the synopsis. I loved reading your answers to this tag!

  4. I hope you do carry on with the Harry Potter series! I still haven’t finished the final book yet though, I’ve been putting it off for so long because I don’t want it to end haha.

  5. Your answers were so much fun! I totally agree about a character not knowing how attractive they are, that’s a super annoying trope. And I also don’t really like to eat while I read either, I feel like all my favorite foods kind of leave a mess on my fingers I don’t want on my book. Fun post! 😊

  6. Thank you so much for the tag❤️

    Insta love is one of my biggest bookish pet peeves too!! It’s SO frustrating and it makes it hard to like the characters. Ugh it’s just the worst.

    I’ve never read A Man Called Ove but I have heard that it’s excellent. I will have to add that to my TBR 🙂

    And I do hope you get to finish Harry Potter someday. It really is super long though, so I would definitely wait until you have the time and don’t have as many other books to read. That way you can fully appreciate and enjoy the rest of the series. 😊

  7. Thank you so much for the tag!❤️I really enjoyed reading all your answers. I think I judge books by covers too, haha. Also, I hope you continue on with the Harry Potter series at some point! It’s kind of a commitment, so I get not wanting to read it right now. 😉 But, if you ever need something to read, I hope you pick it up, because the books just get better as it goes on!

    • You’re welcome! I’m looking forward to reading your answers! I think everyone (at least secretly) judges books by their covers 😂 Ahh you’re so right, Harry Potter is a commitment, that’s why I’ve been putting it off for now. But definitely I will pick it up when I need something to read, especially something fun to read! Thank you for the nice comment 😊
