Book Blogger Quiz!

Who doesn't love a bookish quiz? This one originated from Amanda at Amanda's Nose in a Book,  but I heard about it from Mel at Double Stacked Bookshelves. Here we go!

Top Three Bookish Pet Peeves:

1. When people borrow my books and don't return them in a timely manner, or return them in worse condition, or (the worst) LOSE them. Yes, this has happened. Now I'm really selective about who I let borrow them.  They must love books as much as I do :)

2.  People bothering me when I'm reading (unless it's urgent/emergency, or an epically awesome story or update)

3.  Super small print in books.  It does not make my eyes happy. That is a great thing about the kindle, you can change the font size!

Prefect Reading Spot:
Ideally, on a beach or by the pool in Hawaii! In reality, my comfy couch snuggling with my kitties! But really, I can read just about anywhere.

3 Bookish Confessions:

1. I am currently reading Harry Potter for the very first time. Now that I am halfway through it I am sad I have waited this long! It's a fantastic series so far.

2.  I always, always, ALWAYS have a book with me. Even if I'm just going to the grocery store for something really quick, a book is always in my purse. Just in case. Hence the need to have a big purse!

3. There are very few classics I've read that I've actually really liked or could really get into. Perhaps I just haven't read the right ones.

When was the last time you cried during a book?
The Book Thief--I was super glad I finished it at home. Crying while reading in public would've been a bit awkward!

How many books are on your bedside table?
Currently only two. My cats love to jump up there and knock them over, so I try to keep the stack minimal and put the books back on my bookshelf.

What is your favorite snack to eat while reading?
Definitely popcorn!! I LOVE popcorn--it's my favorite snack. I have an air popper and love popping up a big bowl....and eating it all myself.

Name 3 books you'd recommend to everyone:
Moloka'i by Alan Brennert
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Wild by Cheryl Strayed

Write how much books mean to you in three words:

What is your biggest reading secret?
I love chick lit. Sometimes you need that light and relaxing reading!

Who are you tagging?
Anyone who wants to participate!


  1. Love this!! My number one requirements for my purse is that it has to be big enough to carry a book or my Kindle (or both). I never leave the house without my Kindle. Doesn't matter where I'm going. It's like an irrational fear that something will happen to it if it's not with me. Or I will have time to read and it'll be the one time I don't have it. Lol.

    1. I completely agree!!!! It's usually my kindle and a physical book in my purse (in today's case, two books and my kindle, as I went to the library at lunch!)

  2. Me! Me! I'm in the middle of a Chunkster and don't have time to post much. I'd love to do a little quiz like this!
