c54a6fe6cd8ff0899baf0b373c5b7263

Happy day 8 of blogmas!I’ve been loving seeing everyone’s posts every day. I hope everyone is having a good December and is enjoying Blogmas 🎅🏼 I wasn’t tagged by anyone but I saw this tag done by Chelsea over on her channel chelseadolling reads.

Questions:

1. Are there any books you started this year that you need to finish?

I am currently reading Kingdom of Ash and it is taking me ages to finish. I feel like I should be further in than I am.

2. Do you have an autumnal book to transition into the end of the year?

I’m hoping to re-read Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in December once it gets closer to Christmas that way there’s no pressure to read during the holidays.

3. Is there a new release you’re still waiting for?

I’m doing this tag a little late ,

4. What are three books you want to read before the end of the year?

I am planning on reading some Christmassy books during the month of December, and I am going to be buddy reading The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe with ___ over in Twitter.

5. Is there a book you think could still shock you and become your favorite book of the year?

I’m pretty sure I know what my favourite book of the year is and I’m highly doubtful that anything else will beat it at this point. I’m not going to spoil what book that is because I have a post about it coming soon 😊

6.Have you already started making reading plans for 2019?

I do have some books planned for January 2019, I also have a post coming out about this or it might be out already. I have a few ARCs I need to get to and there my priority in January.

That’s it for this one, thank you for stopping by!!

Currently reading

The Proposal- Jasmine Guilloroy, it is so good. I can’t wait to read more and find out what happens 😊

Drink of choice while reading

Definitely Coffee !

E-reader or physical book

I prefer the feel of physical books, but this past year reading with a baby is hard. So almost all the books I’ve read on my phone.

Fictional character you probably would have dated in high school

Hahaha Damon from Vampire Diaries 😅

Glad you gave this book a chance

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, I wasn’t interested in reading this book at all. But Scribd had an audiobook, and OMG am I ever happy I read it. One of the best books I’ve read.

Hidden gem book

Mud Vein by Tarryn Fisher, not enough people know about this book. And they need to get on it. This book will make you think wtf but also it’s such an emotional dark story. I love this book!!

Important moment in your reading life

When I discovered Harry Potter back in 2002. I was always a reader but it was this book that really kick started my love for fantasy.

Just finished

Giant Days Vol 1, it was really cute.

Kind of books you won’t read

I don’t like westerns, I’m not the biggest fan of magical realism but I won’t not read them.

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels

Reading Habits Tag

I was tagged by Sleepy Sam Reads to do the reading habits tag. Thank you so much for tagging me. Lately I’ve been hoarding tags there’s so many good ones going around right now ! 😊

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

I like to read in bed where it’s cosy. I also like to read in the couch where I can watch Emmy playing.

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

I love cute bookmarks! I read at work and sometimes I have to stop reading suddenly so I shove anything in there to mark my place.

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

I prefer to end reading once the chapter is finished. But life happens and if the baby needs something I need to stop where I am.

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?

I have a drink beside my bed or on the coffee table. It’s to hard to eat at the same time. Plus I wouldn’t want to get the book dirty.

5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

I can have music on if it’s instrumental or soft indie. I get to distracted if the tv is on, I’ll end up watching the show instead.

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

Usually I will read one book and listen to one on audio. I get to invested in a story and I just want to read that book until it’s done. But I can listen to an audiobook while cleaning or getting Emmy to bed,

7. Reading at home or everywhere?

Preferable at home. It’s the most comfortable.

8. Reading out lout or silently in your head?

Silently, I hate reading out loud.

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

No, I don’t usually skip ahead.

10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

I wouldn’t break it on purpose, I like my books to be in good condition so Noah can read them and someday Emmy can too.

11. Do you write in your books?

No.

That’s all for this one. Feel free to do this tag yourselves!

Gansey, The Raven Boys, Maggie Steifvater. Gansey doesn’t let anything stop him on his quest for Glendower and I admire him for never giving up hope.

Shahrzad and Khalid!! The Wrath and the Dawn

2. Ten Duel Commandments: Favorite fight scene – THAT END SCENE FROM QUEEN OF SHADOWS I AM DYING

I have to admit, I didn’t get around to starting The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare until earlier this year, and I’m still not finished.

2) Padme Amidala : Kickbutt female character?  Celaena – Throne of Glass, a badass assassin. Don’t want to give anything away but Celaena proves herself time and time again throughout the series. I love her so much !!

3) Leia Organa : Best or worst love triangle? The Prince,Lia,The Assasin, The Kiss of deception I love theses three, I ship Lia with both the guys. That never happens.

4) Luke Skywalker : Rising star author, a new author you’ve discovered and absolutely love? A new author I’ve discovered this year is Sarah Fine, I read Impostor Queen this winter and I loved it.

5) Anakin Skywalker : A book or series that started out well and then became bad? I wouldn’t say it was bad but as the series went on I found Vampire Academy got boring in the last two books.

6) Qui-Gon Jinn : Worst character death? Finnick, The Hunger Games. My soul will never get over this!

7) Han Solo : A book with a lot of sass? Shatter me ( Aaron Warner) Oh gosh!!! He’s a bad boy, a trained soldier,comes off as an asshole,but he has so many feelings for Juliette ❤

8) Emperor Palpatine- Best world building? A Court of Mist and Fury, Sarah J Maas-The Night Court ,Sarah’s words are beautiful the way she describes the night court I could picture it perfectly. Its breathtaking, dark beautiful surrounded by stars.

9) Ben Kenobi/Obi-Wan Kenobi – A book you went in with low expectations and that blew you away?Red Queen- Victoria Ayvyard, I head so many people say negative things but a handful or people rave about it. I was hesitant going in because of all the hype, I read it just before Glass Sword came out and omg ! I loved it. It’s worth all the hype.

10) Yoda – A book that taught you something or that made you grow? I can’t think of an answer for this one,so I’m just gonna say Harry Potter. As a child it taught me to have hope to keep on going even when things are bad.
