1.) Have you ever damaged a book?

Well….not on purpose. I think the worst thing I ever did was spill grape juice on part of my copy of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix when I was little so the last half of the book is wrinkled and stained at the top.

2.) Have you ever damaged a borrowed book?

Nope, never. I try to treat other people’s books even better than I treat my own because they don’t belong to me.

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

This really depends both on how much free time I get and the book itself. If I’m enjoying the book I can easily finish it in maybe 3 days, so usually I can finish at least 1 to 2 books in a week.

4.) Books that you haven’t finished?

I don’t DNF books very often, even if the book is really bad I can usually stick it out to the end but sometimes it happens. I have only officially DNF’d two books: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Once Upon a Dream.

5.) Hyped/ Popular books you didn’t like?

Please don’t kill me but I loathed:

“City of Bones” by Cassandra Clare

“Fallen” by Lauren Kate

“Cinder” by Marissa Meyer

The House of Night series by PC & Kristin Cast

Although I m going to continue with the Lunar Chronicles!

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

I never feel like I have to hide what I’m reading although I might be the teensiest bit embarrassed about reading any fluffy romance books just because that’s not what I usually read.

7.) How many books do you own?

Around 300 including eBooks, I really don’t keep a proper count.

8.) Are you a fast reader or a slow reader?

This kind of goes right along with question #3, it depends on how much I’m liking the book I’m reading. If it’s enjoyable I’m a faster reader but if it’s not enjoyable it will take me forever. Normally though I’m just kind of a …medium reader.

9.) Do you like to buddy read?

Yes! I love being able to read a book with a friend and discuss since…I don’t really have any family and friends that like to read as much as I do! So bring on the book buddy friendship!

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

 In my head for sure. The only time I ever enjoy reading out loud is if it’s a funny book and I think others want to listen.

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

“The Lord of the Rings” by J.R.R. Tolkien because technically they’re one giant book and weren’t actually meant to be published as three separate books. Besides if it was the ONLY book I owned maybe I’d finally read it.
