10 Bookish Questions Tag

So last week, I was tagged by A Books Neverland to do a tag that she created on her Youtube three years ago but transitioned to her blog. It is the 10 Bookish Questions Tag so let's get started...

Question One: How many books do you currently own?

Honestly, I really don't want to count all of my books but know that I have a lot. I have about 275 on my Kindle, 40 audiobooks and A LOT of physical books probably around 300 books but there are a lot of them. 

Question Two: How many books are you currently reading?

About 4 books but mainly A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin, Rebel, Run by Manjeet Mann, Fleabag: The Scriptures by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Ayoade on Top by Richard Ayoade. 

Question Three: Choose a couple books you read but didn't enjoy?

The two that I go on about all the time are The November Criminals by Sam Munson and When Everything Feels Like the Movies by Raziel Reid. Both are really bad and are problematic and just no to both of them. 

Question Four: A cover buy?

Go by Kazuki Kaneshiro. I brought this on Kindle but I saw the cover on the page and thought that it looked really interesting and decided to buy it. It was a really interesting take at looking at nationality and belonging to a nation although I wouldn't say it was a YA book and was more a cross over YA. I also wanted to read more translated fiction so this was the best way to do that with a good cover!

Question Five: A book you own but hate the cover of?

I agree with Milly and basically, all book to movie adaptation covers especially The Host as that film poster just isn't good anyway. 

Question Six: A book you haven't read in years?

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I haven't read the book since I was 16 and I wanted to reread it as it is a banned book which I can read in Banned Book Week. 

Question Seven: A book you will always recommend?

Anything by David Owen because everyone should read at least one of his books!

Question Eight: All-time favourite book series?

For me, it was always a toss-up between The Hunger Games and Harry Potter but I think that I will always go towards The Hunger Games as it made such a massive impact on me and my teenage years.

Question Nine: Where do you read? 

Anywhere! On the train, on the bus, in bed, on the sofa. Yeah, I'm quite versatile!

Question Ten: What are the last two books you gave a 5-star rating? and why? 

So I don't really give a rating anymore but I really loved The Ask And The Answer by Patrick Ness because I love Patrick Ness and I also just love books that made me think and lovable characters and this has both. I also loved My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness as it was a great look at depression and Kabi Nagata gives a raw and honest portrayal of it. 

I tag (if you want to do it):
Rachel from RacheLeanne

Alex from Schmirfle

If anyone else wants to do it feel free!

See you soon,

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
