Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely day. I’ve seen a thing going around book blogs/booktube where people talk about 25 book-related facts about themselves. As I’ve reached fifty followers on this blog (THANK YOU SO MUCH), I thought I’d do this post so you guys can get to know me a little better. So, let’s get started!
- Until this past year, I was COMPLETELY against audiobooks and e-books. Now, I love both of them.
- The first YA book I read was actually The Hunger Games. I really owe my book obsession to The Fault in Our Stars and The Book Thief, though.
- (as of April 2, 2016) I’ve only met two authors: Marissa Meyer and Ernest Cline. I’ll be attending a book festival this month, so I’ll meet many more!
- I was very late to the Percy Jackson and Harry Potter bandwagon. I read HP in summer of 2015 and PJO in fall of 2015.
- I read in the shower (like polandbananasbooks does), and it has basically become my personal trait at school. Literally, this one girl in all my classes tells every teacher that I read in the shower.
- I carry a book with me everywhere. LITERALLY EVERYWHERE.
- My favorite bookstore is half price books. I’ve been to about four or five different ones, and I love them all so much.
- My favorite genre is probably realistic fiction/contemporary. It isn’t my absolute favorite, but it’s really close to my favorite. Not contemporary like “GIRL MEETS BOY OOOOHHH” but like “CHARACTER IS FACED WITH A VERY REALISTIC SITUATION”.
- I made my grandpa read We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. (He loved it).
- I didn’t like Throne of Glass.
- I actually read faster with physical books than with e-books.
- I can’t bring myself to buy a book full price anymore. I have to have some discount in some way.
- I don’t mind going to libraries, but I prefer buying my own books.
- English is definitely my best subject in school.
- I generally don’t reread books. The only books I’ve reread are Divergent, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, Romeo and Juliet, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
- I actually liked Romeo and Juliet more the second time I read it.
- I once stayed up until 3:30 a.m. on a school night to read. I actually wasn’t tired the next morning.
- I’ve won a few awards for my writings, and I actually attended an irl writing camp!
- I don’t get in reading slumps after I read a really good book. I’m the complete opposite. I actually finished If I Stay the same night I finished Deathly Hallows.
- If a book I’ve read gets turned into a movie, I most likely won’t watch the movie. Most book-movie adaptations are pretty disappointing, so I’ve learned not to waste my money.
- I’m a gryffindor! I’ve taken several sorting hat quizzes, and I’ve gotten gryffindor, slytherin, and ravenclaw. Gryffindors have several traits (like Hermione can be Ravenclaw, Harry can be Slytherin, etc.) , so I identify as a Gryffindor.
- I have three copies of Deathly Hallows… one is the American cover, one is the adult British cover, and one special edition British cover.
- Mystery books are so difficult for me to read! I get so frustrated I want to stop reading.
- I used to be a HUGE book crier, but I’m not really anymore. I usually just wallow in my pain with no tears.
- I hate having to read books for school. Even if the book is really good, I can’t bring myself to read them. (I actually have to read Animal Farm for school, and I’m struggling to read it.)
