The Inside Out Book Tag

Woo, another book tag! I really like this one and I’ve been meaning to go see the movie in the cinema, it looks just hilarious. I was tagged by HARDWORK BOULEVARD, you should go check out her take on this tag. Now, on to the tag:

Books that bring you joy

How They Met and Other Stories by David Levithan

This book just makes me so happy when I read it and I love love love how cute the romances are in this novel.(It doesn’t hurt that David Levithan is my favorite author either)

A book that made you angry

Dark Flame by Alyson Noel

I’ve already done a book review on this where I ranted about it, but this book just gets to me. Nothing happens in this book, I don’t know how the author manages to write almost 400 pages where there is virtually no plot. So it’s not so much the story or characters as it is the author and book itself that makes me angry.

Books that made you sad

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

This was such a beautiful story and you could just see where it was going at the end, I’m pretty sure I teared up when it was finished.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

The whole concept of this novel is heartbreaking, it really made me think about how we treat people and the impact that it had on others.

The Weight of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf

I was given this book to read and was not expecting what happened to happen. I didn’t cry or anything but it was just really sad to think about what happened to the little girl in this story.

A book that disgusts you

Dreamland by Sarah Dessen

It sickens and disgusts me that people can act this way, to beat an innocent person is just not right.

A book that brings you fear

The Stand by Stephen King

I haven’t actually finished this book, but the whole idea of a disease spreading so fast is really frightening.

The Reading Habits Book Tag

I have been tagged to do this lovely book tag by Tiffani @TheBookVenom, please go check out her blog, it’s bookish and we all need more of that in our lives. Now on to the questions…

Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

I mostly read curled up on the left hand side of my couch in the sitting room(I’m very specific about which side, it has to be that side).

Bookmark or random piece of paper?

I am currently using a receipt as a bookmark. So yeah random piece of paper, who needs to go and spend money on fancy bookmarks when your most likely going to lose them anyway. But each to there own.

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?

I usually try to stop reading when the chapter ends, I hate stopping in the middle of a page.

Do you eat or drink while reading?

No, I just can’t get the hang of holding a book and eating at the same time.

Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

Generally I don’t do either because I find it quite distracting. But if I were to, I would listen to music, probably classical since there are no words.

One book at a time or several at once?

One at at time. I like to give all of my attention to the book that I’m currently reading.

Reading at home or everywhere?

I prefer to read at home.

Reading out loud or silently in your head?

Silently in my head.

Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

Some times my eyes will skim over the next paragraph(without my permission). But I never skip whole pages, unless it is an immensely crap book and I just wanna know what happens.

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

I try to keep them as new looking as possible, but sometimes it just has to happen. Also depends on how much I liked the book, if it’s good I will want to keep it as pretty as possible.

Do you write in your books?

Never! Its like defiling a book, I just couldn’t make my self do it. I always hated it in school when the teacher would make us underline something or highlight it.
