#7DaysOfWLL... The Bookish Tag

Hola Lexicans! So yesterday I was tagged by Amy (Little Moon Dragon) to do the Bookish Tag post (go check out her answers here) so I though me + books = life so why not! Hope you enjoy<3

1. Which book has been on your shelf the longest?

Don't kill me HP fans, but Harry Potter has been on my shelf for so long and I just keep on not reading it ahah. Also really old pictures books from when I was little, like The Gruffalo.

2. Which book are you currently reading, last read and are going to read next?

I'm currently reading a new release called Windfall (watch out for my review of that once I've finished, currently loving it), I last read The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon (which you can read my review of here) and next I'm reading Cream Buns And Crime by Robin Stevens.

3. What book did you like that everyone hated?

Well I've tried reading Harry Potter and it just isn't my thing BUT I'M NOT GIVING UP ON HARRY POTTER JUST YET. Also, as Amy mentioned I'll Give You The Sun. I've tried to get into it about 3 times now and I just find it quite boring. But neither of these books I have 'hated'.

4. What book do you keep telling yourself you'll read but probably won't?

My English teacher recommended I tried some more adult books, out of my comfort zone so my mum borrowed some Bill Bryson books off a friend and I keep on putting reading them off ahah. It's just so many books, so little time!

5. What books are you saving for retirement?

None. Why wait to read a good book? Exactly. I definitely want to reread books (like Wonder by RJ Palacio) that are favourites of mine now, as they'll be pretty old once I'm retired so most likely I will have forgotten about them!

6. Last page: read it or wait to the end?

Obviously wait to the end! Why would anyone want to spoil it and read the last page first. I've done it a couple of times before but then I always feel guilty afterwards and try to erase anything I read from my memory (even though big plot twists normally happen a bit before the end, rather than on the very last page).

7. Acknowledgements: waste of paper and ink, or interesting aside?

I definitely don't think they're a waste of paper and ink. If I really loved a book and I'm so sad it has ended, then I read the acknowledgements to try and cling onto the book. If the book was meh I probably won't read them, but I still think they're interesting to have.

8. Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life?

Well Room On The Broom by Julia Donaldson (a young child's picture book) reminds me of Halloween as we used to recite a certain part of it on Halloween (it was actually our 'trick' if someone said 'trick or treat' even though it's not much of a trick ahah). Beautiful Broken Things (my fav book) by Sara Barnard reminds me of the song Don't Be So Hard On Yourself by Jess Glynne and my flight back from Thailand last summer.

9. Which book has been with you the most places?

Probably Wonder by RJ Palacio. Every morning in Year 5 we had to read for 15 minutes or so and I always forgot to bring in a new book, and just kept Wonder in my bag. I must have read that book 50 odd times because of it >.<

10. Used or brand new?

I definitely prefer brand new.

11. Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?

Nope never heard of them!

12. Have you ever seen a movie you liked more than the book?

No, I think I tend to prefer the thing I saw or read first, and I pretty much always read the book first soo.. When the Everything, Everything film adaption comes out I will definitely do a comparison! However, I did see a play I liked more than the book - The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas. Definitely think the play is better than the book in that case.

13. Have you ever read a book that made you soo hungry?

Well most cookbooks to be honest! I mean, brownies, who can resist am I right?!

14. Who is the person whose book advice you'll always take?

My mum is always right when it comes to books I'll like and won't! Also all of you in the blogosphere, I don't have enough time to try out all the books you recommend, but if it sounds good, I'm bound to check it out.

15. Is there a book out of your usual comfort zone that you ended up loving?

I loved The Selection series, which is out of my comfort zone quite a bit as well as Divergent (although hated and couldn't even finish Insurgent, the second book).

I hope you all liked this post! I did miss out some questions that I just couldn't think of an answer for, as there's no point just saying 'I don't know'. I'm not going to tag specific people but just any of my book-loving blogger friends out there, I tag you to do this post. Make sure you let me know if you do, so I can check it out:) Be back tomorrow for the very final day of my #7DaysOfWLL project!
