So this week has been a struggle – once again. It was supposed to be a calm and relaxing week, but instead, I feel like I’ve been hanging on by a thread trying to keep things organized and getting things accomplished. Since I didn’t have another post planned, I thought that I would do a book tag instead! I saw this tag over on the AMAZING blog Thrice Read – which is basically the most amazing blog to find book tags 🙂 If you’re ever looking for a tag to do, chances are, they’ve done it! Here we go!
1 – WHO? Who is an author you’d love to have a one on one with?
This will come as no surprise….. JAY KRISTOFF! I want to meet this man SO badly! First of all, our appearance together would be hilarious. He’s almost 7 feet tall, and i’m 5 feet tall. He would dwarf me and make me look like a child lol. But I really want to meet him for his humour and creativity. His books are just so amazing, he’s so brutal with his characters, and he seems like he’s a generally sweet, soft, and hilarious person.
2 – WHAT? What genre or style do you most gravitate to?
Fantasy and science fiction. Almost always. If there is somehow a combination of the two, I am in bookish heaven!
3 – WHERE? Where do you prefer to read?
I almost always read in the living room on the couch or chair. I get something to drink, cuddle with my dog, and have background noise to keep me focused. For some reason I can’t read in complete silence…. it freaks me out! I do sometimes read in bed but it always ends up with me passing out and loosing my spot in the book.
4 – WHEN? What time of the day do you prefer to read?
I try to pick up a book whenever I have a spare few minutes, but I do most of my reading after 8pm. The kids are starting to get settled, things start to quiet down, and I don’t have a long list of shit I need to do hanging over my head. If I know that things need to get done, I can’t focus on a book because I feel guilty that I’m not being productive. So before bed time is when I do 95% of my reading.
5 – WHY? Why is your favourite book your favourite book?
This one is really hard to answer. I don’t think that I have ONE favourite book. There are many. But the reason why I love them is almost always the same. Great characters, invoked emotion, a world/setting I could lose myself in, and twists and turns. Usually books that invoked emotion is the kicker though. Emotions could include heartbreak, sadness, excitement, shock, love, and more.
BONUS! How do you go about selecting what you’ll read next?
This one is easy – it depends on what mood I’m in. I am a 100% mood reader, so it depends on how i’m feeling. If i’m feeling emotional I’ll pick up a contemporary. If I’m bored i’ll pick up a fantasy. If I’m excited I’ll pick up a science fiction….. kind of like that.
If you haven’t done this tag yet, consider yourself tagged! It was really fun to take a step back and look at why you’re reading what you are, why you enjoy it, and just the type of reader you are 🙂
Until next time, happy reading!
