The Reader Confession Tag

img_1157

As the month of May is coming to an end, I’m all excited to start Marvel-A-Thon and not in a mood to write any review posts yet. That’s why it’s nice to be tagged by amazing bloggers so that my blog doesn’t become dull and boring.

I have Sara @ The Bibliophagist to thank for this wonderful tag where she has made me think quite a lot before answering. Go ahead and checkout her page for more wonderful posts and proceed to read what I have to say.

Have you ever damaged a book?

Not intentionally. But recently, I got a call from Mom informing me that there was a termite infestation back home which seems to have turned some of my old books to dust ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ

How long does it take you to read a book?

Most contemporaries would probably take me a day. Most fantasies too unless I’m not in the mood for fast reading and/or listening to the audiobook.

Books that you havenโ€™t finished?

There are many many books that I have DNDed because I didn’t like them, but there are a few (listed below) which I stopped reading because it wasn’t the right time for me and would like to pick up soon.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

The Handsome Girl & Her Beautiful Boy by B.T. Gottfred

The Star-touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena

Hyped/popular books you donโ€™t like?

These are not books that I hated but just didn’t live up to all the hype.

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Scoring Wilder by R.S.Grey

Is there a book you wouldnโ€™t tell anyone you were reading?

Not if anyone asked me directly but I don’t really discuss what books I’m reading with anyone at home.

How many books do you own?

My kindle says I own 287 books and I probably have around 60-70 physical books.

Are you a fast or a slow reader?

Pretty fast reader.

Do you like to buddy read?

I didn’t think I would but I have greatly enjoyed our readalongs as part of Jessica’s Book Club.

Do you read better in your head or out loud?

Definitely in my head.

If you were only allowed to own one book, what would it be and why?

That’s a very tough choice. I would love to cheat and own the whole Grishaverse books. One book is too hard to survive on.

I TAG:

Jess @ Reading with Jessica

Charvi @ Not Just Fiction

Jagdeshwari @ Bibliophiles World Blog

      I will wait for Nikolaiโ€™s duology to be completed… then they can turn them all into an anthology ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ

  1. Ohh I love that you picked a Leigh Bardugo book to read “forever” – and Children of Blood and Bone is such a hyped book, but I definitely lost interest in it after I read some of the less glowing reviews.

    And I’m sorry about those books that were destroyed!! I feel your pain. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    1. Leighโ€™s writing is too precious to not have with me forever ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
      I stopped COBAB after a couple of chapters coz I wasnโ€™t feeling it and then when I read the average reviews, I realized I wasnโ€™t alone…

      Those books were very close to my heart coz I bought them with my own money during my first job after college.. my mom tried her best to care for them but it just happened ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜” Iโ€™ll try to build a new collection ๐Ÿ˜Š
