Tag: The Book Addiction Book Tag


book addiction tag

Sam @ Fictionally Sam tagged me into this tag which will tell us if I’m addicted to books or not. I wasn’t supposed to post this until Monday but then I realized how many reviews I had once again– so here’s a tag I wrote last night.

What is the longest amount of time you can comfortably go without picking up a book?

Usually a day or two but I’m in a slight reading slump atm, so I haven’t picked up a book in three days. I do read fan-fiction, so even if I’m not reading physical or eBooks I’m still reading something.

How many books do you carry on your person (or kindle) at any one time?

One or two physical books depending how many pages I have left in my current read. I also have few books in my kindle but I’m more a physical book person myself. For some reason I rarely enjoy the books I end up reading in my kindle.

Do you keep every book you buy/receive or are you happy to pass them on to make space for more?

If I had someone who enjoyed the books I’ve read and not enjoyed or books I decided not to read after all *stares at her copy of The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong* I’d gladly give all the books I no longer want away to someone who appreciates them. I’m guessing the’re pretty lonely in my black boxes. There just aren’t any people in my country that would want them that I know of.

How long would you spend in a bookshop on a standard visit?

I wouldn’t say I’m a big bookstore person. I order most of my books but I do make my sister or friends go in with me if we walk by one. You never know if there’s a sale or if I happen to find something I want. I’d say that I don’t spend more than fifteen minutes there, though. Our bookstore isn’t that great to be honest. I think there’s still the same fifteen English books that there were this summer.

How much time per day do you actually spend reading?

Like with Sam it totally depends on the book. It could be anything between twelve hours to twelve minutes. It depends on how busy I’m that day and also how into I’m in that book, you know? Usually I spend at least few hours reading. It could be that I was supposed to only read few minutes before bed but then before I know it it’s past my bedtime.

Where does the task ‘picking up a book’ appear on your daily to-do list?

I don’t think I totally understood this question but if I finished a book night before, I choose my next read in the morning before leaving to school/ work. You never know when you have time to read, so you need to pick a book ready to your backpack.

How many books do you reckon you own in total (including e-books)?

I’m way too lazy to count but maybe 300? Like I said I don’t read that many eBooks. I actually wish I knew how to delete some of my kindle books from my iPhone app. I think I end up DNF’ing more books than actually finishing.

Approximately how often do you bring up books in conversation?

Whenever I can! I just love books, so how could I not? I live and breath books. I actually feel sorry for my friends since they’re not big readers.

What is the biggest book (page count) you have finished reading?

I’m not entirely sure but I think it was Kingdom Of Ash by Sarah J. Maas. That one was long ass book and it took me over two weeks to finish it. I think I wasn’t as into it as I want with the earlier books and just finished it so I could say I finished the whole series. It had 980 pages.

Is there a book you had to get your hands on against all odds i.e searching bookshops, online digging etc?

Alexa Riley and Ruby Dixon books! I don’ know what’s it with these two authors but their books are so hard to find in physical form! I found Sheltered accidentally after I finished Alexa Riley’s For Her series and was so happy. I can’t tell you how happy I am that Ruby @ Ruby’s books told me about Read Me Romance podcast because without it I’d have never gotten the chance to listen Alexa Riley’s books Mated To The Reaper and Closer.

I know that not even all Dixon’s books from her Ice Planet Barbarians series can be found but I’m slowly getting all the ones that are sold in Adlibris/BD. They’re a little more expensive than usual paperbacks but I’m ready to pay a little extra to find out more about these blue aliens. I’d like to give her other books a chance but the sites with free shipping just don’t have them. I’m not ready to pay over 20€ shipping just to order few books from Amazon.

A book you struggled to finish but refused to DNF?

Shadow And Bone by Leigh Bardugo. If you’ve been following me awhile you know that I haven’t liked any her books but since I bought Grisha boxed set I refused to DNF the first book. I thought that if I finished at least the first book it wouldn’t be such a waste.

What are 3 of your main book goals for 2019?
  • Read 150 books
  • Do more buddy reads
  • Grow my personal library before I move out
Have you ever had the privilege of converting someone into a reader (maybe via inspiration or incessant nagging)?

Well I got my best friend to start the Lux series. Does that count? She’s very busy though, so she only read couple chapter but that’s a start!

I kept asking if she’s finished it but I was starting to annoy even myself, so I stopped and figured that she’ll let me know if she finishes the first book. She told me that she loved Daemon and Katy, though and even read some spoilers.

Describe what books mean to you in five words.

Love stories. Adventure. Happiness. Crying.

  1. absolutely agree about passing on books to others who will appreciate them more! it’s like Toy Story 3 – they’re meant to be loved, and hoarding them isn’t really bringing you joy. good luck on your book goals for 2019! 🍀
