Reading Habits Book Tag

I found this tag on Reading with Jessica’s blog. Make sure to head over and check out Jessica’s answers!


1) Bookmarks or random piece of paper?

I have 4 of these bookmarks. I flipping love them.


2) Stop reading randomly or after a chapter/certain amount of pages?

I think my bookmark answered this for me… lol I don’t have a goal in mind when I start reading. I just read as much as I can, when I can. Though I’d love to always be able to finish the chapter, it’s not always possible.

3) Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

Usually in bed. Sometimes in the living room with my feet up.

4) Do you eat or drink while reading?

I always have water with me, no matter what I’m doing. But I don’t need anything while I read.

5) Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

I don’t prefer it, but I can read with these things going on in the background. My husband is usually watching something while I read next to him 🙂

6) One book at a time or several?

I should be a one at a time reader, but I’ve started a lot of books lately without finishing any first. Not sure what’s going on there.

7) Reading at home or everywhere?

I read when and where I can, but most of my reading is done at home.

8) Reading out loud or silently?

Silently. But my husband and I have wanted to read a book together, reading it out loud. Just haven’t gotten around to it.


9) Do you read ahead or even skip pages?QOS

I’ve done this once. With Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas. It was really dragging for me and I scanned ahead to try to find a place where I could get back into it, but it didn’t happened. Ended up DNFing. Sad 😦




10) Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

I try my best to keep my books looking new, but I don’t freak out if the binding breaks.

11) Do you write in your books?

Not fiction, but I write in text books and technical books all the time.

12) Who do you tag?

The Cake Book Tag

Not directly tagged, but Reading with Jessica (Check out her blog!) tagged everyone who read her Cake Book Tag post, and since I did, I will!

Let’s get started!



Since I haven’t read a lot of dark books, my choices were limited. I’m OK with that though because this might have been my choice anyway. Those poor children.



Last year, I was in a reading slump and this book got me out of it. I don’t get to read too often, but I finished this book in two or three sittings and had a lot of fun with it. Can’t wait for my next slump 😛




The first sentence of my Goodreads review was this: “I’m not really sure what to say.” LOL It doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it though. It just left me a little off balance.




Brandon Sanderson. Nuff said. But seriously, this whole series is extremely accessible. No matter who you are, or where you’re from, you’d have fun with this one.




Might need to make this post double as an unpopular opinions book tag. LOL Three times. That’s how many times I tried to read this book and just couldn’t. People rave about her writing style, and it’s just not for me.




This book ripped my heart out. I had no idea what it was going into it and I’m glad I didn’t, because I probably wouldn’t have read it if I did. It’s heavy, but it keeps you wanting more as each word, sentence, paragraph, page leads you to the next.




What can I say? I still want more! Can’t wait for Dance of Thieves! Mary could write in this world for the rest of her life and I would and will auto-buy every one.
