Currently Reading Tag

Hello guys! I’ve finally decided to take part in the currently reading tag thingy. I hope you enjoy this read .

1. How many books do you usually read at once?

Usually I try to only read one at once since I get a bit stressed if I’m reading loads of books at the same time , but as I can’t help myself I ,more times than I wish, read 2-3 books at the same time
2. If you’re reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch to reading the other book (do you read a certain amount of pages in each?)

I usually just read what I want , I do not make myself read a book that I’m not in the mood to so I pick up whatever I feel like reading, within my currently reading pile , and I read as many or as little pages as I feel like reading .
3. Do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re part way through a book?

No, once I start a book I choose a bookmark that will stay with that same book until I finish it .
4. Where do you keep the book you’re currently reading?

On top of my bookshelf or in my bedside table.
5. What time of day do you spend the most time reading?

In the evenings, as soon as I’m done with my homework I will get some reading done until I go to bed , usually from 5pm until 9pm .

 

6. How long do you typically read for in one go?

Maybe 1 hour tops , I have a hard time focusing on the book that I’m reading within one hour from picking it up so I do little breaks .
7. Do you read hard covers with the dust jacket on or off?

Dust jacket ALWAYS off .
8. Which position do you mainly use to read?

Sitting down on my cozy puff (not sure if that is a word in english but it is in portuguese)
9. Do you take the book you’re currently reading with you everywhere you go?

Yeah.
10. How often do you update your progress in the book you’re currently reading on goodreads?

Every 100 pages or so .
11. Who would you like to tag?

My homie Thunderreads and Winterfellslibrary .

A bookish Q&A

So a few weeks ago I asked you guys on Instagram (travelling_through_pages) to ask me questions and this is what you came up with,hope you enjoy it !

Thunderreads asked :

  • What’s your favorite genre?

I’d have to say Contemporary because it’s just a really cute and fun read and I love when there is romance in books also I love to see relathionships between people unravel and to see how we , as human beings, behave so differently .

Sreadsya asked :

  • If you could bring one character to life, who would it be?

Kind of SPOILER ALERT  I have to say A.J.Fickry even if that means that the book (The Storied Life of A.J.Fickry) wouldn’t be as powerful as it was, A.J was such a loving character and it was really hard to see him die like that .

  • What are some of your favourite book to movie adaptations?

The Diary of a Young Girl . I had to read this book for class and as soon as I finished it I had to watch the movie and it was just as beautiful, and even watching the movie I felt so surrounded by the story aghh that movie was amazing .

Booksbydelune asked :

  • When did you begin to read?

I read my first full book when I was about six years old , I actually remember that day and the book (it was Noddy ) I read it with my dad next to me but he was there just to help me with the spelling .

  • Favorite female and male character?

After spending a lot of time thinking of this one my final answer is Melanie from The Girl with All the Gifts for the female character and James from The Program for the male character ( Ettiéne from Anna and the French Kiss is also an amazing male character )

  • Favorite book?

The Program by Suzanne Young  .I honestly don’t really know what made me love this book so much but I really really loved it and after almost a year it’s still my favourite

  • Worst book you’ve read?

Oh god , the worst book I’ve read has to be The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold it is truly the worst book ever published in my opinion. The plot sounded amazing but the story itself got so so so so boring that I took about 2 months ,if not even more ,to finish it . I’m so annoyed that that book was published. I respect everyone who loved this book but it just wasn’t for me

  • How many books do you read per week?

I’m a very slow reader, and the reason for that is that I have a really hard time finding time to read therefore I only read like half a book per week and the best I can do is a book

 

Thank you all so much for the questions and for reading this! I will see you all very soon xx
