I wanted to let you know a little more about myself and my bookish habits today, so without further ado, here are 25 bookish facts about me!
One: I haven’t read a lot of popular books yet. I’m super regretful but I’m planning on doing so soon!
Two: I read more eBooks than I do physical books. I find myself reading faster on a digital device anyway.
Three: Lately, I’ve been reading more ARCs than new releases/backlist books.
Four: I usually read before bed. It’s mostly the only time I have free to read, which is probably why nighttime is my favorite time of the day.
Five: My favorite books are WE ARE THE ANTS, SHATTER ME, and I’LL GIVE YOU THE SUN.
Six: I don’t like listening to music while I read. I find it to be distracting or hard to concentrate.
Seven: Before I started blogging, I used to always read stories on Wattpad. They were all fun to read (especially the WattyAwards ones; they’re actually really good check em out if you want)!
Eight: I like taking photos of hardcover books more than I do paperbacks because there’s so many ways you can tweak the photos with hardcovers!
Nine: My favorite genres are probably fantasy and contemporary. I find myself reading a lot from those genres than most others.
Ten: Yes, it does bother me when books don’t match their series. Or if there’s a paperback in between a series of hardcovers.
Eleven: And yes, I also do judge a book by its cover (oops what can you do).
Twelve: It either takes me three days or three months to finish a book. I’m not very proud of this fact.
Thirteen: I try to write reviews right after I finish reading the book so I don’t forget things I want to say about it.
Fourteen: I haven’t brought a physical book to school ever (well maybe like once). I never have time to read during school but hopefully towards the end of the year I can start to do so.
Fifteen: When I read physical books, I try to be as careful with the book/pages as I can. I just like looking at a nice, pretty book (fight me).
Sixteen: When I read hardcover books, I take off the dust jacket. I don’t know why but I feel like I can keep the jacket in better shape if I do that.
Seventeen: I like reading books in series right after another; I hate waiting for books to come out.
Eighteen: I used to dog-ear (i’m ashamed), but now I use those handy lil things called bookmarks (aren’t you proud of me?).
Nineteen: I think I like reading ebooks more because I can highlight quotes and write notes in the book without actually doing so.
Twenty: I’m trying to get a lot of my friends to read my favorite books, and luckily for me, my one friend is really interested in WE ARE THE ANTS, so I’m really proud.
Twenty-one: I adore getting book mail, and that’s the reason why I basically watch the mailman/UPS man everyday. (it’s getting to be a little problem)
Twenty-two: I don’t know if I want to write a book. I’ve tried before, but I just never felt a connection. I’m most likely going to go into medicine so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Twenty-three: I’m a stacker; I stack books everywhere in my room (oops).
Twenty-four: I adore reading books about forbidden romances. It’s one of my weaknesses; what can I say?
Twenty-five: Sometimes I try not to read the synopsis for a book so I don’t expect anything and it actually is more exciting and fun to read!
