Every time I get back into blogging I really struggle, because I’ve been out of the loop for os long I don’t even know what posts to make. Especially now, since I read but not at the same pace I used to if I were to write only reviews I would be posting on here once a month ://////////////
SOO to combat this I decided to take part in some tags, I feel like they make a more structured post, otherwise it would just be me here rambling forever about nonnnnsensee.
(Wow if you could see my first drafts of my posts, they’re literally pages long… then I realise I would never sit there and read this so how can I expect other people tooo…(yupp the final posts are after I’ve cut out so many things :)) and there we go again with the rambling. On with the actual book tag!
1 – How many books do you usually read at once?
I’ve always preferred reading one book at a time, I feel like if I read more than one I lose my focus. Also if I’m reading a book and I’m at a point where I want to read something else, I’m probably don’t want to carry on reading the current one….
I used to be always finish a book even if I’m not enjoying its, but I’ve realised that’s what contributes to my reading slumps!
2 – How do you decide when to switch between multiple reads?
NEVER, I just give up on the one I’m reading now :’)
3 – Do you ever switch bookmarks partially through a book?
WOWW I always lose bookmarks, you know the way most people can’t finish a lip balm pot, I always lose my bookmark half way through and end up using a random piece of paper…
4 – Where do you keep the books you are currently reading?
They’re usually always around me, which is why sometimes reading thick books is SUCH A NUISANCE. If I’m going out anywhereee I always have to carry the book, EVEN IF THERE’S A 99% CHANCE I WON’T READ IT/
5 – What time of day do you read the most?
I actually don’t have a timee, I just read when I feel like it?? Sometimes if I’m in the reading mood I will sit there fore 4 hours reading, but the next day I might not even touch the book.
6 – How long do you typically read in one session?
Again this usually depends on where I am in the book, usually with slow starting books I read for maybe 15/20mins towards the beginnging. When the pace picks upp is when I can sit for a few hours.
7 – Do you read hardbacks with the dust jackets off?
NO BECAUSE I ALWAYS END UP LOSING THE DUST JACKET!! I saw that a few booktubers were doing this so I was like why nottttt, if it’ll help preserve the book. But I’ve come to the conclusion that I’d rather have a damaged dust jacket, than nothing at all
8 – What position do you mainly use to read?
As someone in their early 20’s I really have the back problems of grandad because wowwww, reading or not I find it difficult to stay in one position for a long time. When reading I really do the mosttt, I move sooo much. (My backs aching even as a write this posttt, I really don’t know if this is a medical problem or if I just have shite posture…)
9 – Do you take your current read with you everywhere you go?
YES. (Again this is why I have a love-hate relationship with hardback books.
10 – How often do you update your Goodreads reading progress?
I always make this a goal of mine, to constantly update my Goodreads account. But tbh I think I’ve written 5 reviews?? On there EVER. I don’t know I’d kinda rather just post here, but sometimes if I get a book review request then I also post a link to my review on there.
I tag anyone who wants to participate!
(Also side note: I’ve tried to read Illuminae, but I really REALLY couldn’t get through the first chapter… I have actually tried picking it up on two separate occasions but I always end up putting it back down. I don’t know if it’s the format that’s too confusing?? Anyone else experienced this please let me know in the comments!)
