The Reader Confession Tag

Even though I would love to *cough* obsess *cough* over my Scarlet review, which I hoped to write last night, my health decided to kick me when I was down, so I need to take things easy for the next while. Now, say hello to another book tag!

So I saw this one on Hammock of Books. I love when I see Kay’s posts pop up on my Reader feed. Go check out her blog!

 

Have you ever damaged a book?

😐😐😐

Yes. Several. And I don’t want to talk about it. I feel so guilty. 😭

How long does it take you to read a book?

I typically give myself about seven days to read a book. But I read Cinder in twenty-four hours, and I read a 300-page book in almost two weeks. So I’m all over the board with this question. πŸ˜…

Books that you haven’t finished?

I believe I’ve dnf’d a handful of books, but there are plenty I wanted to though.

Hyped/popular books you don’t like?

I don’t understand the book. I love magical realism, but the storyline is all over the place. I honestly tried to love it. Just look at that cover. But I felt the book had two separate stories conflicting with each other, and I’m not sure which one won.

Is there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading?

Smut. Actually, I wouldn’t tell my mom I read it, but she probably already knows since I read it in front of her. I have no shame in reading these books. Oh God, I’m like Nesta. πŸ˜‚

How many books do you own?

I wouldn’t be surprised if I owned around 300. But compared to some of these bookstagrammers, I’m a baby Smaug.

Are you a fast or a slow reader?

It all depends on the book. I can breeze through a couple hundred pages in a few hours, and sometimes it may take me forever to get through a book.

Do you like to buddy read?

Yassss. My first and last buddy read was with Dana @ Dana and the Books. Both she and I attended college together and took the Ryerson Publishing program as well. And even though she has moved to the UK, we keep tabs on each other. She’s one reason why I first started blogging.

But yes, I love doing it even though I don’t do it often. And this answer gives you permission to bug me into buddy reading with you.

Do you read better in your head or out loud?

Obviously, I prefer reading in my head. I cannot imagine any other way. I’d probably annoy everyone more if I do.

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

I’ve always been honest with my readers. I come from poverty and a bad past. So reading, and in extension writing, has saved me. Both have blocked out situations and pain. So if I had only one book to read/own, it is White Oleander. It is my haven, my safe place, my bible. If you’re a survivor, and you’ve read this book, you’ll understand what I mean. If you don’t, I still recommend it to you.

 

Tag time!

Just because I tag you doesn’t mean you’re obligated to do this tag. I just thought you might have fun doing. Now if you do, link me back. I want to read your answers.

For anyone who I haven’t tagged, you can do it as well! I’m not stopping you. πŸ˜‰

  2. Fun fun fun.
    I’m the same as you with how fast I can get through books. Really depends on if I’m really into it or not. I wouldn’t have admitted to my mom to reading the smut either…. but I saw her kindle recently….. She can’t judge! πŸ˜„πŸ˜€πŸ˜‚

  3. Smut is good! I usually get my smut reading fanfiction, but I need to look for books with smut. I’m a fast reader, but the amount of time it takes me to read a book varies too.
