Reading Habits Book Tag

readinghabitstag

Hello everyone! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. Anyway, I was visiting some of my favorite blogs and saw this over at Michelle’s from Firstbooklove. I know I have other tags and blog posts to do, but this one looked easy peasy and fun.


Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

In my bedroom, cozy and comfy in bed. I am working on creating a nice reading den in the garage. We are converting the garage to an entertainment space of some sort and I wanted a little reading area, so my boyfriend is going to build me bookshelves and I’m going to buy the comfiest recliner chair.  

Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Lately, I’ve been reading mostly on my kindle or ipad, but definitely bookmarks.

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?

It really depends. If I’m into the story, I need to find a place where I can stop which is usually very difficult when I really want to keep going, but have to sleep or stop for some reason. If the story is just okay, I try to finish the chapter I’m on, but if I really need to stop, anywhere is fine. I usually reread a a page or two before the current one when I start again so my mind is refreshed.

Do you eat or drink whilst reading?

I can actually do both when I’m on my kindle or ipad. Mostly snacks though, but once in a while I’d have my e-reader while eating lunch or dinner. With my physical copies, I still do, but I try to be VERY VERY careful.

Multitasking: Music or TV whilst reading?

Music is fine. Sometimes I can watch TV if I’m reading romance books, but it really depends. If I do have the TV on, it’s usually a show I’ve seen before already.

One book at a time or several?

Again, it depends on my mood. I can read multiple, sometimes just one. I think the most I’ve read at one time is probably 4. Any more than that and I think my brain will overload.

Reading at home or everywhere?

Definitely everywhere and anytime I can. Use your imagination and I’d probably read there already.

Read out loud or silently in your head?

Silently in my head.

Do you read ahead or skip pages?

I rarely ever skip pages and that usually happens when I’m close to DNF’ing a book. I do skim once in a while when the story is dragging.

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

I definitely do my best to keep it like new.

Do you write in your books?

I have before for school, but now I don’t. I guess that’s why I sometimes like reading on my ipad cause I can highlight without writing on my books.


Well, I hope you enjoyed reading my answers. I don’t feel like tagging anyone, but if you’re reading this, considered yourself TAGGED!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!!

What is your favorite type of blog post?

I really like doing review, tags, and award blog posts.

What is a book so amazing that you could talk about it forever and why?

Wow. Choosing one book is pretty difficult. I read for fun and there are so many amazing books. Hmm… I’m going to go with one of my favorite sci-fi book series right now which is the Starstruck Saga by S.E. Anderson. This series is honestly laugh out loud hilarious, unique, charming, and just ridiculously FUN! I know I know, you’re probably thinking why on earth am I choosing a sci-fi series when the books I read are mostly romance. Well, that’s because this series is simply AWESOME. Oh and I also really do love sci-fi and have always been fascinated by the idea that aliens exist. You can read my review for the third book, Traveler, HERE.

And those covers are absolutely stunning!!!

What is your favorite book you read this year and why?

I just did a Top Ten Tuesday Post for the Best Books I’ve Read This Year, so if I were to choose one from that list, I’d have to go with Everything Under the Sun by Jessica Redmerski . It was an intriguing, heartbreaking, and fantastic edge of your seat post apocalyptic thriller with a deliciously swoony slow burn romance! I loved the storyline, the writing, the characters, the romance, and all the feels. And the ending most definitely left me wanting more. You can read my full review by clicking the title.
