Get to know me!

I wasn’t tagged by anyone but I figured I’d do it anyway. I hope you enjoy.

Can you stop reading at anytime, or do you have to stop at a chapter/page?

Most of the time I need to stop at the next chapter. Sometimes the chapter is too long for the amount of time I have to read so I’ll stop in the middle.

Do you eat or drink while eating? 

Sometimes, but I don’t prefer it.

Can you read while listening to music or watching tv?

If any noise is quiet enough I can read, but most of the time I need it quiet.

One book at a time or several?

I try to read one book at a time but life is too short. I always end up reading several.

Read at home or everywhere?

I read at home most of the time, but if I have time I’ll read in my car or at the park.

Do you read out load or silently in my head?

I can do both it doesn’t matter. I like to think I retain more knowledge when reading aloud.

Do you read ahead or skip pages?

I never read ahead. If I feel like I need to then I shouldn’t be reading the book. Unless it’s a book I’ve read, then I’ll skip to parts I like/know.

Break the spine or keep it new?

I try to keep the spine in tact but if it breaks, in my case, it means it was loved a little more than the rest!

Write books or just read?

I just read. I used to try to write when I was younger but it wasn’t for me. Who knows things might change.

Last book read?

We are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson. (Definitely recommend the book if you read YA!!)

I have recently joined the book community and I am enjoying it. I will be reviewing books on this blog as well as posting other bookish related posts. Most of the books I read are Young Adult but I'll try to read any genre. Let me know your opinions, but be respectful of others. Don't forget to tell people about this blog if you enjoy it!
