The Book Blogger Test {Bookish}


This should be fun!!! Thank you, Brin, for tagging me 🙂


What are your top three book pet hates?

1. Whiney, needy, annoying female protagonists. It just bugs me to no end.

2. I’m going to have to agree with Brin {her answer was the same} and say terrible book covers. I judge book by their covers, and if it has some cheesy posing couple or terrible art then I won’t even consider it. Terrible I know…but so is the cover.

3. Long sentences. I tried reading The Luminaries and it took me a week to read 45 pages. For those who are familiar, I usually read 3 books in a week, maybe more. This book had sentences with 117 words on like every other page. Okay, maybe not every other page but it dang near felt like it. No thanks. I’ll watch the movie….which will probably be 8 hours long.


Describe your perfect reading spot

Somewhere comfortable! I love to read on my couch and I also read in bed. When I lived at home, my dad had a great glass porch with a super comfy love seat. I would sit out there and read and enjoy the light and the weather…especially rain. My dream reading spot would be in my two-story library {with ladders}, a wall of windows, and a sunken in spot in the center of the floor filled with amazeballs pillows and cushions.


Tell us three book confessions

1. I judge books by their cover and I don’t feel like I’m missing out.

2. I love buying my books off of Amazon/ Amazon Marketplace. Yes I know I should support small business bookstores and such but my wallet doth protest.

3. I’m a really bit scaredy cat and don’t do well with horror novels. I tried reading It by Stephen King and dropped the book when the phone rang. It was pathetic.


When was the last time you cried during a book?

What book DON’T I cry during!? The last one I truly blubbered during was The Fault in Our Stars but that’s no surprise there. The movie was no exception. I felt the need to apologize to those around me for the congestion and hiccupping.


How many books are on your bedside table?

Four currently. Three that have taken up residency {I’m too lazy to walk them the 20 feet to the bookshelf} and the one that I’m currently reading.


What is your favourite snack to eat while you’re reading?

I don’t eat while reading as I don’t want smudges on my pages. But I do drink tea/coffee sometimes.


Name three books you would recommend to everyone

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling


Write how much books mean to you in just three words

Read to live


What is your biggest reading secret?

Hmmmmm, I don’t really have one. I guess if I had to pick something it would be that I sometimes skim the following page….especially when there’s drama going down. It eases the nerves to know. But most times I have to actively not look ahead.

  1. I’m with you on number 1 of the pet peeves. Absolutely drives me insane! I’ll have to steal one of your book recommendations too. I am a Potterhead for life!
    This sounds like fun! Thanks for tagging me:)

  2. “Yes I know I should support small business bookstores and such but my wallet doth protest.”


    • Thank you for that 🙂 I was afraid I would be reprimanded! I just can’t justify spending 30 bucks for a book locally when I can buy it for 11 bucks with free shipping. I’ll support locally every now and then but normally, no.

      • basically. I buy all my books new and used on amazon marketplace for £2.81 instead of £7+ a pop. That’s for a hardcover!! I mean come on, also it helps to recycle unwanted books from their previous owners!

  3. I wanted to get “I read to live” tattooed for so long. Have you seen/heard the Sondheim opera Passion? One of the character sings, “I read to live,” and I always loved that.

  4. Love your answers! I read It by Stephen King when I was about 11 or 12. It freaked me out so much that I slept with the light on for about 3 weeks afterwards!! Confession time: If I were to re-read it now I would probably be just as freaked out! I love horror but that book is beyond scary lol. 😉
