Miranda Kulig, over at the blog Dreams and Dandelions, posted The Book Habits and Currently Reading Q&A Tag and tagged me to do so as well! Thanks Miranda! Don’t forget to check out her blog. Now, onto those questions and I’ll tag some fellow bookworm bloggers at the end too!
Q1: What books do you remember reading that kick-started your bookworm habit?
When I was six, I started reading Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder. In fact, I read that series several times, and that was what started my reading obsession. Around the same time, I started reading the Chronicles of Narnia, which ultimately got me into fantasy later on.
Q2: What genre, or genres, would you normally choose?
Definitely science fiction and fantasy. Always. I do also love classic literature, such as Jane Austen, H. G. Wells, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Victor Hugo. I like historical fiction, which is a genre I read mostly during middle/high school, but not a whole lot recently. Over the last couple years I’ve been loving indie published books—I’ll get to that more in question 9.
Q3: Do you eat while you read and if yes, what exactly?
What?! And risk the possibility of soiling the pages??
Okay, sometimes I do, but only when I’m really hungry and can’t put down a book, but having those instances happen simultaneously is pretty rare. And, if I get my act together, I always do love a good cup of tea while reading (or doing anything, at that).
Q4: Are there any scenes from your favorite novels that you remember vividly?
Hmmm. I can’t think of any scenes that I still remember vividly. I guess my imagination doesn’t easily hold on to stuff like that.
Q5: Were there any least favorites?
Yes. Mockingjay, the third book in the Hunger Games series is one of them. That book disappointed me so much. It was depressing, I disliked each of the characters more and more as the story progressed, and the ending was terrible. But I think it was the best ending that a story like that could sum up. And then there’s Song of the Sending by a more well-known indie author I read so I could review it on Constant Collectible. In fact, you can read all about what I disliked from that book on there.
Q6: So, as you’re a bookworm, what are you reading currently today? (Optional)
Quite a bit, actually. I just started reading The Blood Race by K. A. Emmons. It is intriguing, unique, with interesting characters, and I love her writing style. Basically: Why haven’t I read this book before??? I also recently began The Stroke of Eleven by Kyle Robert Shultz, and wow, what a prologue! I’m also listening to the audiobook version of The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I read the actual paperback version a few years ago, but all of my books are packed and I heard the narrator was good, so I’m reading it again.
Q7: How’s it getting along for you? (Optional)
How’s the reading? Pssh. I’m trying to read a lot, but my classes this semester require a lot of reading per week, so I’m not reading “fun books” as much as I’d like to. But, at least the books I’m reading for school are interesting and enjoyable for the most part.
