The questions that Maddie gave me:
1. What book(s) have you read more than once?
There are so many books that I want to re-read, but I’ve only ever re-read a few books. I’ve re-read the entire Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer, The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, Girl Online by Zoe Sugg, and Delirium by Lauren Oliver.
2. Do you read non-fiction books (biographies, history books, economy, etc.)?
While I’d like to read more non-fiction books, I’ve only ever read non-fiction for school. Aside from books by YouTubers I like, I haven’t found any non-fiction books that really capture my interest.
3. Have you ever bought a book just because the cover is really pretty?
I hate to admit this, but I judge books by their covers so often (I think everybody does though, let’s be honest). So yes, I’ve boughten many books just because their cover was pretty, from The Selection by Kiera Cass to How to Love by Katie Cotugno.
4. Do you like to cook? Is there anything you cook that is inspired by something you’ve read?
I don’t cook very often (usually whatever I attempt to make turns out horrible), but I will admit that sometimes a book will mention a food that sounds interesting so I’ll look up a recipe and try to convince a family member to help make it with me.
5. Do you eat/snack while reading?
All. The. Time. And it’s usually either chips, chocolate, or full-on meals. This usually consists of me accidentally spilling food onto my books. It happens a lot. A LOT.
6. If you are stranded on an island and have only 3 books with you, what would they be?
This is one of the hardest questions of all time, but probably: The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, and The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Therefore I would have a classic novel, a cute contemporary novel, and a coming-of-age novel to choose from.
7. Have you ever liked a movie adaptation more than the book?
I’ve always been the type of person that wants books to be made into movies. While there have been a couple of movie adaptions that have been… very… er… not… good, there have been a few that I thought were amazing. But the only adaption that sticks out in my mind that was, in my opinion, better than the book was probably If I Stay, which was originally written by Gayle Forman. The only reason for this being that I really didn’t like the book, but I loved the movie.
8. Do you write stories? If you do, what kind of stories do you write?
I always attempt to write stories (I attempted to participate in NaNoWriMo last November), but I find myself giving up after awhile. The kinds of stories I write usually depend on the kind of mood I’m in. They always start out as cute and fluffy contemporaries but for some reason end up becoming thrillers/mysteries…?
9. Is there a book(s) that you didn’t want to like but end up liking anyway?
Believe it or not, I really didn’t want to like The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. When I was 12, Twilight was my favorite book on earth (the reason being that it was the only YA book I’d ever read), and whenever people would hate on Twilight and say how much better The Hunger Games was, it made my inner, angry Twihard come out, so I vowed to never read a series that was supposedly ‘better’ than my beloved Twilight series. However, while I still do enjoy the Twilight series because it introduced me to the world of YA books, I read The Hunger Games when I was 14, and it ended up becoming one of my favorite series of all time.
10. On a scale of 1-10, how weird are you?
Some days I’m a 2, some days I’m a 459452, it just depends on how much sugar and caffeine I’ve had.
11. What kind of music do you listen to?
I listen to extremely mainstream, pop music, and I often get judged for it by adults and people that are against mainstream music. But, on the flip side, I enjoy a wide variety of music genres; I like indie/alternative music, older 80’s music, and I have a great love for many pop/punk/rock bands.
Bloggers That I Tag + Questions of My Own
Because I’m new to the blogging world, I don’t know that many bloggers yet. Like, barely any at all. And all of the bloggers I do know have already done this tag! SO, if you’re a book blogger, you haven’t done this tag, and you would like to do this tag, then I tag you! Here are the 11 questions that I’d like for you to answer:
- What’s the last book that you gave 5 stars to?
- What’s your favorite book genre to read?
- What’s your least favorite book genre to read?
- What series have you not read yet that you’d really like to read soon?
- What book/book series do you want to be made into a movie?
- Who are some of your favorite fictional OTPs/ships?
- Do you listen to music while you read, and if so what music do you listen to?
- What book(s) do you think have the prettiest covers?
- Do you prefer hardcover or paperback books?
- Who is your favorite author?
- What book could you read over and over again and never get tired of?
This was extremely fun to participate in! Once again, thanks so much to Maddie for tagging me and if you want to participate in this tag, then I tag you!
