These upcoming weeks are a bit mad work wise so my apologies if I don’t post as regularly but one of my blogging goals this year was to stick to my posting schedule. This might mean that you’ll get a few more book tags than usual as they’re always fun and easy to do. I’ve seen a lot of people do this tag and I always love reading other peoples answers so I hope you enjoy reading mine. Let me know if you’ve done this tag in the comments as I’d love read your answers.
1 – WHO? Who is an author you’d love to have a one on one with?
I’ve already met Sarah J Maas but I’d love to go out with her and just gush to her about all her books and characters! I’d also love to go out with Leigh Bardugo and maybe get some insider knowledge about the TV show adaptation as well as persuading her to cast me as an extra or something. I’m thinking a ladies lunch or afternoon tea somewhere where we can discuss all our favourites books and characters.
2 – WHAT? What genre or style do you most gravitate to?
Fantasy! I just love exploring different worlds as well as all magical and mystery elements they have. My aim this year is to read more adult fantasy but also to challenge myself and read genre’s that I wouldn’t usually read. It’s going well so far as I’ve read a lot of contemporary and romance reads, books that are all getting me in the mood for Valentines Day!
3 – WHERE? Where do you prefer to read?
I love curling up somewhere cosy wether it be on my sofa at home or in my bed at university, I just like to be warm and comfortable.
4 – WHEN? What time of the day do you prefer to read?
I’m a morning person, so I usually like to read a bit of my book before I start the day but at the same time I always enjoy a quick read in the evening before I go to bed. I think reading is always a good way to start and end the day.
5 – WHY? Why is your favourite book your favourite book?
I don’t really have one ‘favourite’ book, instead I have about 5/6 so I’ll just pick a few of my absolute favourites.
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson – I apologise as I swear I mention this book in every post but it honestly is incredible! The characters, the world, the storyline, all of it is wonderful and I can’t wait to read more of his books this year.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – I’m obsessed with all the magic in this book and its ability to transport the reader to the beautiful yet mysterious world of the Night Circus. If you haven’t read this book yet then I highly recommend that it finds a spot on your TBR pile.
Eagle in the Sky by Wilbur Smith – I haven’t mentioned this book for a while but this is the first book (aside from the Harry Potter series ) that I read and instantly fell in love with. This book is a tragic romance that made me cry more than I’d care to admit, but Smith’s writing captivates you and presents such a beautiful story.
BONUS! How do you go about selecting what you’ll read next?
My downfall is that I don’t have any – I just pick anything. But one of my reading goals this year is to tackle my TBR pile and I’ve started setting myself monthly TBR’s to help give myself a bit of structure. The only thing is that I keep getting distracted by new releases and titles up for request on NetGalley!
