Tag: Get To Know Me

Hello everyone,

I was tagged by the sweet Daniella @ Reading with Daniella to do the Get To Know Me tag and I’ll be answering it today.

Books:

Can you stop reading at any time, or does it have to be a certain page or chapter?
I always end a chapter before stop reading. It annoys me very much if I have to stop in the middle of a chapter.

Do you eat or drink anything whilst reading?
I always drink coffee, tea or water. As for food, it depends.

Can you read listening to music or watching TV?
I don’t watch TV at all so I obviously don’t do it while I’m reading. I read a lot on the train (it takes me one hour to go to Uni and then another one to return home) and because of the noise I usually listen to music but it has to be something that I don’t really know the lyrics to, otherwise I’ll get distracted. If I’m home I prefer absolute silence tho.

One book at a time or several at once?
One at a time.

Reading at home or everywhere?
Everywhere! The only places I can’t read are on the car/bus because I get headaches.

Reading out loud or in your head?
Mostly in my head.

Do you read ahead or skip pages?
WHO DOES THAT?

Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
I try to keep them new.

Do you write books or just read them?
I use to write stories when I was younger, but now I just read.

Five favorite books:
Like Daniella said, it’s impossible to choose just 5…So some of them will be series and we’ll pretend they count as one 😀

  1. A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin
  2. Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling
  3. Shades of Magic by V. E. Schwab
  4. Ensaio Sobre a Cegueira (in English, Blindness) by José Saramago
  5. Salt to the Sea, Ruta Sepetys

The last book that you read?
Percy Jackson and the Titan’s Curse, the third book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan. I’m loving this series so much!!

I don’t know. Getting into University 4 years after leaving high school? I was confused when I finished high school so I decided to take a gap year that turned out to be 4 years.
