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):

See you soon,

My Reading Tastes Are Changing

For the last couple of years, I feel like this has become a reoccurring blog post but I want to talk about it now because I think something is actually happening in my reading life. My reading tastes are changing. I've felt it for a while. I haven't really been drawn to YA titles that much anymore especially contemporary. Being busy in my time, I have been really selective in the books that I pick up so for me: the shorter, the better. And when picking up shorter books, the less likely they are to be YA. The more I am exposed to more books, the more I get to read books that I connect to Some of the books that I have picked up have really surprised me because of how much I ended up enjoying them. I think as I grow older, I am looking for different stories, different experiences and different perspectives. These don't just fit the YA mould. I also have been really into different genres like horror and the occasional thriller which have not read from before and I'm interes

   * I am reviewing this book which I was gifted for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. * Title: The Great Godden  Author: Meg Rossoff Publisher: Bloomsbury  Source: NetGalley ( Bookshop UK |  Hive |  Goodreads  |  Storygraph ) Book Summary: Everyone talks about falling in love like it’s the most miraculous, life-changing thing in the world. Something happens, they say, and you know … That’s what happened when I met Kit Godden. I looked into his eyes and I knew. Only everyone else knew too. Everyone else felt exactly the same way.

The Bus Stop: A Short Story

It was a silent night at the bus stop. Everything was quiet, eerily quiet for a Friday night. Too quiet. With that the night was broken. A boy was walking towards the bus stop, with his friend who was talking loudly. Beer bottle in hand, it was clear that the pre-drinking that been in fall force. The boy’s friend was yelling that the boy had broken up with his girlfriend earlier that night. “Forget Alice man. Drown your sorrows in drink. Tonight, you will be a man. A free man.” He said, slurring his words as he spoke, walking towards the road rather than on the pavement. Being scared for his safety, the boy was unsuccessfully trying to get his friend out of the pavement. Attempting successfully, the boy said to his friend, “I think we need to get you home.” The boy himself was not drunk, he had so wanted to be, but he thought that he was going out for a film night with his girlfriend, but this didn’t happen, instead the breakup did. One text later and his girlfriend was gone.
