Reader Confessions Tag

Reader Confessions Tag

Hello friends! Today I am partaking in the Reader Confessions Tag. I have seen plenty of other book bloggers do this and today I am finally doing it myself.

1. Have you Ever Damaged A Book

Starting with the ultimate reader confessions… Yes. I have had plenty of disasters of bringing a drink in my bag and it leaking all over my books. I now try to not carry drinks around with me but I find that I wont drink enough water in the day if I don’t. So I invested in a protective book sleeve to protect my precious books on the go!

2. Have you ever damaged a borrowed book

No, I’m not a complete monster!

3. How long does it take you to read a book?

About a week? Only because my attention span usually means I can only read for an hour or two before I want to go and do something else. I wish I was one of those people who could just read all day long!

4. Books you haven’t finished?

There aren’t any books on my shelf that I have started and not finished. There are a lot of series’ though. Harry Potter, Three Dark Crowns, The Cruel Prince, The Witcher Saga… The list goes on.

5. Hyped/Popular Books you didn’t like?

Hmmm, the only one that springs to mind is We Are Blood and Thunder. It was just such a disappointment despite the hype.

6. Is there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you are reading?

Ummm, probably not! I don’t think anything I read would be something I am ashamed of. Besides, everyone has different tastes and I wouldn’t shame anyone for their reading choices.

7. How many books do you own?

I have never actually counted them all… I am going to guess in the 50-100 mark. Most of them are stored away with only a select few on the shelves next to my bed. That being said, If I were to count them all, it would be quite a lot I think.

8. Are you a fast or a slow reader?

As I mentioned before, I can only few for a few hours at a time before my brain moans at me to be “productive” and get some other things done. I am always juggling more than one task at a time. Multitasking whenever I get the chance! Obviously, I cant really concentrate on a book while doing something else so I find it hard to dedicate a lot of time in my day to just one thing. Because of this is takes me longer to finish books…

9. Do you like to buddy read?

I would LOVE to do buddy reads. Unfortunately, I’m a massive loner with no friends so I don’t have anyone to buddy read with.

10. Do you read better in your head or out loud?

I actually read better out loud because it forces my head to not trail off and daydream. If I am speaking the words out loud I’m more focused. Although, I do read slower that way. So I tend to stick to reading in my head as I read faster this way.

11. If you were only allowed to own one book, what would it be and why?

I refuse to pick just one single book, simply because I couldn’t choose just one. If I were allowed to keep one series though it would be Three Dark Crowns. Most of you know, I adore that series and it holds such a special place in my heart.

That is all for today! I hope you enjoyed reading my reader confessions! I tag you guys to take part in the tag yourselves!

    I am not someone who can read a book in one sitting either, and I have damaged a few books too. Loved your answers, Dominique, and I would be really happy to buddy read something with you some day if you want. 🙂

    This was a fun tag, Dominique. Thanks for sharing more of your personal reading life! Maybe I’ll eventually branch out and do some of these — because I sure enjoy reading them. 🙂
