Book Blogger Test Tag

I’ve been really getting into Blog Tags lately. There’s something fun about them. Answering bookish or personal questions and getting to know fellow bloggers better. Fun! That’s why we spend hours each week blogging. Right? So let’s get into it!


Special shout out to Julia at Fable Hunter who unofficial tagged anyone who wanted to do the tag. That would be me! Thanks!


1) Thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
2) Answer the questions asked on this post — don’t stress it’s quick!
3) Nominate and notify some peeps. 5 preferred.


1. What are your top 3 bookish pet peeves?

  • Great books with mediocre endings

Seriously annoys me that the clearly very talented author rushed through the ending. I hate being disappointed by the ending of a book I loved so much.

  • Ugly covers

There’s nothing better than a gorgeous book cover. Please don’t deprive me of that!

  • Disliking all the main characters

For me I need to like, at least a little bit, the main characters. Or at least understand their bad behavior. Or maybe have a few redeeming qualities. Something that makes them relatable or likable.

2. Name a perfect reading spot:

Sitting outside at home on the deck. Preferably a comfy chair but I don’t own one. Anyone want to buy me one? Lol. 60 to 75 degrees F and sunny. Slightly breezy. A mug of green tea next to me and I’m enjoying all the beauty that Mother Nature has to offer. Nothing better while reading an amazing book.


3. Give 3 reading confessions:

  • Lately I’ve been really getting into the romance genre. Fun, light reading seems to help me destress!
  • Describing a wonderful book is easy in my head, doable in writing but so hard when someone asks “so what’s your book about?” I end up sounding like a rambling idiot. But I’m an intelligent reader, I promise!
  • Reading only 1 book at a time seems weird to me after reading 2-3 for so long


4. When was the last time you cried during a book?

??? I had to look through my last read books for this one. Rush by Lisa Patton. Can’t give away why because of spoilers but trust me, it’s good!


5. Number of books on your bedside table?

Zero. Don’t read in bed.


6. Favorite reading snack?

Green tea/peppermint tea

Don’t snack too much while I read, for the messy hands reason. But I’ve bene loving homemade kettle corn with peanuts lately. A perfect salty sweet snack that’s easy to eat with one hand and hold my Kindle with the other.


7. What are 3 books you’d recommend to anyone?

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown

Visual Intelligence: Sharpen Your Perception, Change Your Life by Amy E. Herman


8. Provide a picture of your bookshelf:


So embarrassing because it’s not organized or pretty at all!


9. How much do books mean to you in 3 words?

Life’s amazing experiences


10. Biggest reading secret?

I rarely like all the hyped up YA books. Probably because I don’t like fantasy or dystopian books, which is kind of why I started my blog. I felt I had a different perspective and things to say about books no one was talking about much.

I first saw this fun little question and answer post on Tammy’s blog here.

I’ve been wanting to share more about myself and thought this was the perfect way to do it! So here we go:


Morning Person or Night Owl?

Night Owl! Absolutely. I’m my best self and most productive from about 4 pm to midnight.


How do you drink coffee?

I don’t. Give me a nice green tea~ iced or hot any day 


Beach or Mountains?

Hmmm, don’t really have a preference as long as it’s gorgeous and peaceful. And I can relax with a book in my hand, but that’s kind of a given.


What was your favorite thing to play as a child? 

House, school, gymnastics meet, or talent show


What is on your nightstand right now?

Nothing. I don’t read in bed. I used to keep my phone there, but got distracted by it so I put it in the drawer in my nightstand. Keeps me from being tempted to quickly glance at it.


What smell do you love?

Rain, Pink Sands candle from Yankee Candle, chocolate chip cookies baking


What is your favorite season?

I don’t have a favorite, except not winter. Too cold!


Do you prefer e-readers or paper books?

Paper. Although I’ve been using my Kindle a lot lately. It’s definitely very convenient.


If you could travel anywhere in the world next, where would it be?

Hawaii. I’ve always wanted to go and a nice relaxing vacation sounds amazing right now.


If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

Be more confident and less stressed.
