Liebster Award

I’m cheating here because I wasn’t nominated but I read the tag on Bookish Luna and thought it would be fun to do. Go check that post out and give me your answers to the questions in the comments. 🙂

1. What book/s can you not live without?

It’s probably the most common answer but… I don’t care. It’s the Harry Potter series. I have so many fond memories of it and it’s been a part of my life for so long.

2. Your first favorite book?

I wrote an entire and a completely different answer and had to delete it, cursing myself out. How could I’ve forgotten it?? My 1st favorite book was Beauty and the Beast. I need to get a new copy because I’ve lost the old one. Well didn’t lose it, my parents did in our move years ago. 🙂

3. Goodreads challenge/reading goal for this year?

It’s 24 books. 

4. Favorite series?

What do you think? 🙂

5. Do you read Fanfiction?

Never tried it.

6. Where is your favorite place to read?

On a beach.

7. Are you a fast or slow reader?

I guess a fast reader. If I like it, I’ll devour it.

8. Do you use bookmarks?

Yes. The strangest thing happened on Sunday. I sat down on the couch to read, I opened the book and set the bookmark aside. But since then I can’t find it anywhere. And I’ve checked everywhere! It’s bugging me.

9. What book do you recommend the most to others?

Anything by Colleen Hoover. I love her writing. Her last novel that I recommended to someone was Maybe Someday.

10. Where do you buy your books?

When we lived in Slovenia I ordered them online, but now that we are living in India, I still need to find a bookstore and so I’m mostly buying e-books. 

11. What book do you dislike that everyone seems to love?

I’m trying really hard to find the answer…but I can’t think of anything. Oh, wait. Last year I read Dear Jane by Kendall Ryan and it has a 3.77 score on Goodreads which I think is pretty good but I didn’t. Like. It. At. All.

 

What are your answers? Do we any in common?

The Mystery Blogger Award

I found this tag on bookbum.co.uk and I found her questions intriguing so I thought I’d give them a go. (Or a write. Whatever.)

If you had to work but didn’t need the money, what would you choose to do?

I would always choose writing. I’d just do it all around the world. I would take my laptop to the most beautiful places in the world and write my ass off. It would a heavenly perfection.

Where is your favorite place to read?

The beach. Any beach. My heart skipped a beat just thinking about it now.

If you could dis-invent one thing, what would it be?

Without a doubt, weapons. I hate them and the idea of violence being the answer. It makes me sick to my stomach.

If you could live in any other time period, when would it be?

One hundred years from now. I’d really like to see what the world will be like, how it will develop and if people will manage to learn from our mistakes.

Would you rather never be able to express yourself accurately or always have to say the exact truth?

I would rather always say the exact truth. I hate lying, omission, beating around the bush, even opening the same issue repeatedly. So, yeah, that not being able to express myself would be hell.

 

What would your answers be? Come on, tell me!

Bookish This or That Tag

I saw this one on a blog and I thought I would try it. So here it goes…

Audiobook or textbook?

I’ve never tried listening to an audiobook and I can’t imagine ever trying it. I just love the feeling of choosing and buying a book, finding the time to open it and actually read it by myself.

Paperback or hardback?

Paperback because I always carry a book with me and they’re lighter and easier to cram onto bookshelves and into bags.

Fiction or Non-Fiction?

Fiction. Fiction. Fiction. I’ve only read a few non-fiction books. If I were to choose it, it would have to be something I’m really interested in, maybe something that can educate me on life (something philosophical or something similar).

Harry Potter or Twilight?

I’ve read both and at the time of reading each I enjoyed it but I wouldn’t go and re-read Twilight. So without a single doubt… Harry Bloody Potter. I’d say that Twilight has Robert Pattinson going for it but then again so does HP.

Bookshop or online?

In a perfect scenario it would be a bookshop. Walking between aisles filled with books, my arms and shopping basket overflowing with new picks, but to be honest I don’t have that option anywhere near me so I opt for buying books online. And I love getting books in the mail, opening the box and having a brand new book to read.

Standalone or trilogy?

It’s hard to say. If it’s a standalone and it’s really good then I’d want it to continue in two more books. But if it’s not that great and there are three…I’m screwed.

Sweet and short or heavy and long?

Heavy and long. Why does that sound dirty? (Probably because I have a dirty mind.)

Cosy read or reading in the sun?

Anywhere and anytime.

However, I’m more of a summer person so my perfect day would be made of a beach, a book, a cocktail and some music.

Hot chocolate or coffee?

Neither. Give me some warm green tea with lemon and ginger, sweetened with honey and I’m happy.
