Hey there! I’m excited to share this with you because it’s about books! I came across the Bookish Tag (A-Z) post on Pinterest from elgeewrites.com and decided to check out the questions. I found them interesting and so I thought it would be fun to work on it. And voila! Come into my love world of books.
How I wish I could get to read every single novel…so many books…not enough time.
Let’s start, shall we?
Author you’ve read the most books from:
For now, it would be Francine Rivers. I discovered her earlier this year and I read her books back-to-back which put me in a good place to start the year.
Best Sequel Ever:
That would be Her Daughter’s Dream by Francine Rivers. It was a sequel of Her Mother’s Hope and reading the generational consequences of one woman was raised was really enlightening.
A Woman Wronged by Rebone Thibedi-Mogotsi.
Drink of Choice While Reading:
Water or juice would do just fine.
E-reader or Physical Book?
I love holding a hard cover and flipping through the pages and taking in that rustic smell. But it’s no longer convenient for me to read hard covers so it’s e-reader all the way.
Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in High School:
Hmm…none comes to mind.
Glad You Gave This Book A Chance:
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. It made me realize how little issues can compound and overwhelm someone to the point of fatality.
Hidden Gem Book:
Most books I’ve read are hidden gems. There’s something I always take away from finishing a novel regardless of how boring or difficult it is to read.
Important Moment in your Reading Life:
When I come to the point when I learn something profound about life, people or God even in a fictional story.
The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides. A must-read, people! Can’t wait to see it on-screen!
Kinds of Books You Won’t Read:
I don’t think I’ve a ‘don’t-read’ category. If the blurb and reviews are good, it’s good enough for me.
Longest Book You’ve Read:
That would be The Winner Stands Alone by Paulo Coelho. It wasn’t because the pages were too many but it was quite difficult for me to read.
Major book hangover because of:
The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma. I couldn’t think of anything else for about 24 hours after finishing the book. Captivating from A to Z. Another one would be The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.
Number of Bookcases You Own:
Unfortunately, I don’t own one.
One Book You Have Read Multiple Times:
That would be the Bible. Aside that, as much as I fall in love in certain novels, I haven’t had the chance to re-read any of them. Why, because there are millions more out there waiting to be read!
Preferred Place to Read:
In a moving car.
Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
Even if I’m dying, until I actually die, I am still living – by the late Paul Kalanithi, author of When Breath Becomes Air.
I’ve a couple of books I didn’t enjoy reading at all and as such, have no recollection of the titles.
Series You Started And Need To Finish (all books are out in series):
Song of fire and ice by George R. R. Martin. The text formatting of the pdf was horrible so I couldn’t even finish the first book. Hope I’d be able to go back to it someday.
Three of your All-Time Favorite Books:
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers
It Ends With Us by Collen Hoover
The Kite Runner by Khaleed Hosseini
Unapologetic Fangirl For:
Very Excited For This Release More Than All The Others:
The Testaments by Margaret Atwood. Can’t wait to read it.
Worst Bookish Habit:
Folding the edges of a novel as a bookmark. I know, I’m terrible.
X Marks The Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book:
I don’t have a book shelf yet. ☹ but I have an e-library. Does that count?
Your latest book purchase:
It’s been a while since I purchased a hard copy and they were quite a number back then.
ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late)
And the Shofar Blew by Francine Rivers. I just couldn’t pry my eyes away from the pages!
Are you a bibliophile like me? Care to try your hands on this tag? What is your worst bookish habit? Let’s get talking!
