BOOKS

Can you stop reading at any time, or does is have to be a certain page or chapter?

I can pretty much stop reading at any point in the story but I usually stop at the end of a chapter or at the section breaks within a chapter.

Do you eat or drink anything whilst reading?

I drink water all the time when I’m reading. If I ever decide to eat something, I’ll put the book to the side because I don’t want it to get ruined.

Can you read listening to music or watching TV?

I listen to music ALL the time! I’ve recently gotten into listening to film scores, which is amazing because it has helped decrease my distractions.

One book at a time or several at once?

I don’t know how people read multiple books at once tbh. I’d probably get confused and mix up the story-lines.

Reading at home or everywhere?

I’ve tried to read elsewhere but I get distracted too easily or there’s too much noise. I prefer staying at home and reading to my heart’s content!

Reading out loud or in your head?

99% of the time I’ll read in my head but if I’m not focused, I’ll read out loud. I’ll dislike it so much that it’ll help me get back into the zone lol.

Do you read ahead or skip pages?

I used to read the last page or so of most books because I NEEDED to know how it ended. I needed to know if they got their happy endings, okay?! But over time I’ve stopped doing it because I wanted to be surprised.

I’ve only skipped pages in a handful of books and they were ones that I ended up disliking a whole lot. *cough The Love Interest cough*

Breaking the spine or keeping it new?

Keeping it new all the way! I will say that there are a select few that I’ll write in like the Shades of Magic series and My Heart and Other Black Holes but that’s as far as I’ll go.

Do you write books or just read them?

Just read them!

Five favourite books:

A Conjuring of Light – V.E. Schwab

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue – Mackenzi Lee

If I Stay – Gayle Forman

Fire – Kristin Cashore

The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern

The last book that you read?

Heart of Mist – Helen Scheuerer {review}

  1. I always try to stop at the end of a chapter or at a page break bc I HATE stopping in the middle of a page.
    I tend to listen to YouTube in the background while reading. I’ve never tried to listen to movie scores tho, are there any really good one’s you’d recommend?

    1. I try to do the same but sometimes I get distracted and I just stop in the middle of a sentence or something lol. I honestly just go on the film score radio on pandora and welcome whatever comes my way. I almost never check what movie the score belongs to but the Harry Potter and Narnia ones are great!

    1. haha most of the time it’s to see whether or not the characters I want to end up together, actually end up together. I don’t really seek out the plot resolution. Now I just do it if I’m not liking a book and am debating whether to push through or dnf it.

  2. Twelve Dancing Princesses is such a beautiful tale. I’d completely forgotten about it.

    Woah, is this a long tag! Great getting to know more about the person behind the blog. I have one question, the question about writing a book, don’t they mean writing your own book and not writing in your books?

  3. It’s interesting you love reading but hate English! I’m going to say maybe you didn’t have the best teachers and school experiences, as a future English teacher myself who observes some of the issues with how it’s taught lol. Also, I totally wouldn’t be able to choose favorite songs either!

  4. Loved learning more about you!! I could never read the last sentence of a book first but once I accidentally read the last sentence and got spoiled haha. You’ve been to so many more places than I have! I haven’t even gone to the Northern part of the U.S.
