Lost In A Book | Tag


I haven't done a tag post in a really long time... too long! But I've found the Lost In A Book tag and I bloody love reading at the moment, so it seems like the perfect tag to do right now... so here I am, with my coffee, under a blanket, blasting The Greatest Showman soundtrack through my headphones... in that blogging mood so let's do it! I hope you enjoy this tag, if you do - feel free to answer some of the questions in the comments below, or link me to your own tag post - I would love to read your answers, especially when they're to do with books because I always love a good book recommendation (who else is obsessed with watching book hauls, just me?!) 


DO YOU HAVE A CERTAIN PLACE AT HOME FOR READING? // 
Not really to be honest. Recently, I haven't had much time for reading so a lot of my reading happens just before bed, so I'm usually in bed by that point! But other than that I basically read anywhere, on the sofa in the office, on the sofa in the living room.. and everyone else I move around in the house! I'm definitely one of those people who takes my book everywhere - I'm always reading whilst cooking or making coffees or in the bath, haha! 

WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO READ? // 
I mainly read at home and honestly I always forget to take books out with me when I leave the house! Which is something I always used to do, especially when I used to travel to work on the train. I feel like taking my book to work would be amazing though, on my lunch break - could definitely do with a few minutes down time with a good book! 

BOOKMARK OR RANDOM PIECE OF PAPER? // 
I actually have these metal bookmarks that go over the page which I love! But, I also love the book depository patterned bookmarks that you get with every order - I have one with The Gruffalo on which is probably my personal favourite, haha! To be honest though, for some reason at the moment I haven't even been using a bookmark.. I've just been using my Goodreads update to remind me what page I'm on.. don't really know why, but meh! 

CAN YOU JUST STOP READING OR DO YOU HAVE TO STOP AT A CHAPTER? // 
I always have to stop at a chapter... (just like I have to have the volume at a multiple of five.. is that just me or?!) I'm also one of those people who always flicks forward to the next chapter to see how many pages I've got to read to get to it, haha! 

WHAT DO YOU EAT OR DRINK WHILST READING? // 
I basically always have a coffee whilst reading, it's sort of become an unplanned tradition now! I also normally always have a snack of some sort too, I mean who can read without having a good snack right?! 

E-READER OR REAL BOOK? // 
I live by real books. I love the feel of a real book, I love the smell of a real book, and most importantly I love how they look on my shelf! So yeah, definitely love a good, real book for sure! 

MUSIC OR TV WHILST READING? // 
Preferably I'll try and have no distractions whilst reading, thats my favourite way to read! But if I had to choose I would probably prefer to have the TV on.. I feel like music is harder to ignore! 

ONE BOOK OR SEVERAL AT A TIME? // 
Whenever I tend to start several books at a time I can get quite stressed and honestly never end up finishing any of them for some reason.. so I try and stick to one at a time! I do make some exceptions though, like right now I'm reading a non-fiction book and a YA, since I have to be in the right mood to want to read non-fiction! 

READING ALOUD OR SILENTLY IN YOUR HEAD? // 
I do a bit of both really! I always remember when I was younger (when I read the Twilight series actually!) I would read out loud and probably annoy my whole house, haha! But now, I tend to read in my head most of the time! 

FICTION OR NON-FICTION // 
I actually have a huge love for both, I do tend to read more fiction though so I definitely need to get round to reading more non-fiction! 

DO YOU READ AHEAD OR SKIP PAGES?  //
NEVER! What sort of monster does that, haha!? When I was younger I actually had the horrible habit of reading the last page of a book every single time I picked up a new book.. I don't know I guess the urge to read it was too much and I just gave in! But I'm glad to say I've broken that habit now, phew! 

BREAK THE SPINE OR KEEP LIKE NEW? //
I really like to keep my books looking nice, so I always try to keep myself from breaking the spine.. it can be tricky though, especially when I'm really into a good book and I can't help myself from bending it! 

DO YOU WRITE IN YOUR BOOKS? // 
Not really, I have some old books from school like Great Gatsby and The Kite Runner which are full of annotations.. but I hate analysing books like that nowadays.. so no!

  1. I haven't seen this tag before, and I love it! I bring my book everywhere (and it always ends up tatty as a result). I haven't thought of using Goodreads as a kind of bookmark - that's such a fab ideqa!

  2. I am glad you did the tag too! I did it a few days ago and it was fun. Choosing just one favourite book is just impossible though haha.
