My Bookish History Tag

Thanks to the lovely Aralyn @ Paper Addictions & Magic I have another tag to do! πŸ˜€ I enjoy tags, challenges and awards (wink wink, nudge nudge) so much. I’m getting addicted to these things!

 

So here we go. Here’s how this tag works…

 

RULES:

  1. Link back to whoever tagged you.
  2. Discuss based on these questions or create your own to help you out!

 

Do you have any childhood favorites? I’m thinking along the lines of those chapter books in elementary school.Β 

I wasn’t really a big reader as a child, but I remember reading a lot of The Babysitters’ Club books. I even had the film that they made! I was a massive fan of that series, like most 90s kids, I guess.

 

Is there a book/series that really got your reading hobby snowballing?

Anyone reading this blog can probably guess what my answer is… HARRY POTTER!

 

Are there any books you enjoyed, even though you had to read them for school?

I absolutely loved The Diary of Anne Frank. It’s still one of my all time favourite books!

 

Was there a book that changed the genres you read? (i.e. were you an avid reader of contemporary, but now it’s all about those dragons?)

Well, I’ve never been a big fan of non-fiction books, but I got one (A Prison Diary by Jeffrey Archer) as a secret santa gift once and it was surprisingly good! I love getting a peak into worlds I don’t usually get a chance to see.

 

Are there any other books/series that hold a special place in your heart?

A LOT of books hold a special place in my heart (Does that make me a book slut?! Shame on me… Haha).

 

What kind of bookworm are you now? You can mention anything. Can you easily read 100 books in 6 months? A slower reader? Are you a mood reader or do you set book goals? Do you hoard books? Do you have 79084 books on your TBR list?Β 

What kind of bookworm am I? I’m not sure… Well, I’m a rather slow reader. I like taking my time when enjoying a story. Skim reading is a bit like cheating in my humble opinion. I mean, if I had written a book I would want the reader to really READ and take in all the details that I spent countless hours researching and editing a gazillion times. So yeah, I take my time when reading a good book.

I don’t have nearly enough books to feel like an accomplished book blogger to tell you the truth, but my TBR list is enormous! I usually decide to read books based on other bloggers’ reviews, booktube videos, or good recommendations from my friends and family.

 

Do you have a shelfie for us?

My bookcases are such a mess I couldn’t show them to the world! So I’m only letting you have a peek at a couple of shelves…

Even if your blog isn’t on the list, I encourage EVERYONE to do this tag! πŸ˜€

    Yay, I’m so glad you did it! Though, with your easy, quick answers (nothing wrong with that), maybe I wrote too much on mine? x) Anyway, great answers. I never had to read the Diary of Anne Frank in school, but I’ve heard good things.
    And there is no slut shaming here! You just have a love for all of the books πŸ˜‰

    Yes for non-fiction! And yes for slow readers!
    If you asked me a few years ago if I liked non-fiction, I would probably answer with an “eww”. However, I found myself more and more gravitating towards biographies. I think it’s very interesting to find more about somebody else’s life. Although I haven’t read much, I want to add more and more non-fiction to my TBR.
    And I’m also a very slow reader. I find amusing when people can read, like, 10 books in a month. If I read five, I’m literally clapping at myself, because this never happens. Last year, I tried to read books faster so I could reach my Goodreads challenge, but I realized I wasn’t enjoying the story at all. So, now, I take my time and appreciate good books.
    Great post! πŸ™‚
