I have seen this tag floating around the BookTube community for a while and so was quite excited when I was tagged by Meena from Tattooed Pages to complete it. So thank you Meena!
D: Do you read more in the morning or at night?
I read more in that afternoon/evening and at night than in the morning (unless you count the wee hours such as 12-3am).
A: Are there any books that changed the way you thought about things?
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher was the first book for me that really delved into the issues of suicide and bullying in a contemporary setting. Eating Disorders: The Path to Recovery by Kate Middleton (not the one married to a prince!) was very influential and insightful in my understanding of eating disorders.
Y: YA or not?
A: Are there any characters you honestly believe to be real?
Unfortunately, no matter how much I wish it otherwise, book characters are works of fiction. So, no…
N: Nobody borrows my books or I don’t mind lending them out?
It depends on who is borrowing the book(s). I do lend out my books to a few trusted people.
D: Do you ever smell your books?
Many sometimes, but not really.
N: Not everyone likes books, is this a positive or a negative?
It’s certainly a very depressing thing to witness. I am passionate about and I enjoy stories, no matter what form they’re in – book, film, TV show, it doesn’t matter. However, books are by far my favourite format and, I believe, the most important.
I: I keep my books in the best condition or maybe not? Which are you?
I try to keep my books in the best condition, though I do tend to break my spines. However, it is an entirely different story for (most of) my school books. *cough* Unnecessary highlighting, annotations, pen, grey lead… Whoops.
G: Gosh I have too many books! True or False?
I have so many more books to buy it is not even funny. Now that I actually have a job, I have so much catching up to do…
H: Have you ever spilled or stained your books before with something, and if so how?
The most memorable time is when I was on holidays in Queensland and brought a class text with me that belonged to the school library so that I could do my homework. I clearly remember spilling tomato soup all over the open pages and mum coming in and having to use the hair dryer to get rid of it. To be fair, it was a really bad book (Hunting Elephants) and I would have only been in grade five at the time.
T: Toned or untoned while reading? . . or in other words. . .Do you read and workout at the same time?
Hahahaha–NO. Just, no. I don’t even know how that would work… Not that I really care as I don’t work out regardless.
Thank you again Meena! I tag Lizzie from mylittlebookblog and Katie from IntoTheBookCase to do this tag. I also tag anyone who stumbles upon this and decides that they want to do it – you can say that I officially tagged you. Please let me know if you do so I can check out your answers!
