Hi everyone, I hope you’re all having an amazing day. I’m back with another tag post as I am sorely behind on these at the moment. I was tagged by the Brilliant Brittany over at Perfectly Tolerable to do the I Dare You Book Tag. Sorry it’s taken me so long to get to it and you should all go and follow her blog if you haven’t already.
- Friends don’t lie.
- You must answer all the questions.
- You must tag 4 people.
What book has been on your shelf the longest?
I have no idea probably one of the children’s books on this shelf.
What is your current read, your last read, and the book you’ll read next?
Currently I’m reading The Goodnight Kiss by Jennifer L. Hart and Red Sister by Mark Lawrence. The last book I read was Emerald Dream by L. C. Perry and I gave it 4 stars. The book I plan on reading next is From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon.
What book did everyone like but you hated?
The winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski. Lots of people seem to have really enjoyed this book but I just couldn’t get into it and in the end I DNFed it less than 100 pages before the end. The plot didn’t pull me in and I couldn’t care less about the characters.
What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably won’t?
This will probably be War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. I would really like to read it but it’s really intimidating as it’s so big.
What book are you saving for your retirement?
I don’t have any books that I am saving for retirement as that is a long way off and I struggle to plan out what I’m going to do a week in the future never mind decades.
Last page: Read it first or wait till the end?
While I would love to say that I don’t do this, it completely depends on my will power. Sometimes I’m really good and don’t do it whereas other times I will read at least the last sentence. Though I don’t do it nearly as much as I used to.
Acknowledgement: waste of paper and ink, or interesting aside?
I don’t tend to read the acknowledgements, sometimes I’ll skim read them but not often.
Which book character would you switch places with?
I think I would pick Sophronia from the Finishing School Series by Gail Carriger as her life just seems so fun and who wouldn’t want to live in a steampunk Victorian Britian.
Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life? (Place, time, person?)
Jane Austen’s books remind me of my grandma as she is the one who got my into them in the first place. Especially Pride and Prejudice as that’s her favourite.
Name a book that you acquired in an interesting way?
None. I either buy my books myself or get given them as gifts.
Have you ever given a book away for a special reason to a special person?
I gave my little brother a Christmas book called Harley Bears Christmas Story which my mum use to read to me every Christmas and she now does the same to him.
Which book has been with you most the places?
Probably my Harry Potter books.
Any “required reading” that you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad two years later?
I only read two novels in high school that I hated and I have no interest in picking up either of them ever again. They were The Cone Gatherers and Lord of the Flies.
Used or brand new?
I own both used and new books and don’t really have a preference, as long as the book is readable I’m happy.
Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?
Nope and I probably never will.
Have you ever seen a movie that you liked more than the book?
I preferred the last Twilight movie to the book as I feel it was more action packed than the book.
Have you ever read a book that made you hungry, cookbooks included?
Heartless by Marissa Meyer made me hungry due to all the baking that went on in it.
Who is a person who’s book advice you’ll always take?
Probably my best friend as we have very similar reading tastes.
Is there a book outside of your comfort zone that you ended up loving?
I’m not a fan of adult contemporary but I loved My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult.
