NonFiction: Reading Habits | Tag

I don’t know many book bloggers, so if anyone comes along: I TAG YOU! You’re tagged!! (introduce me, someone!) Yes, now that it’s out of the way, found this tag via Jenniely, and the original is possibly here at Dreamland Book Blog, since the original video is either unavailable for me, or at all.

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?
3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?
4. Do you eat or drink while reading?
5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
6. One book at a time or several at once?
7. Reading at home or everywhere?
8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?
9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
11. Do you write in your books?

***

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
-No, I just read wherever is most comfortable in the moment.

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?
-Preferably bookmark, but if there aint one, well, then there aint one.
3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?
-I do have to stop at either a page that ends with a full sentence, or a chapter.

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?
-Sometimes I drink tea or coffee. But I’d rather not, since it gets cold before I notice…

5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
– Sometimes I listen to music. Other times I listen to sound machines. Here’s two of my favorites, with a lot to choose from (like Slytherin common room, or siren song): myNoise ; Ambient-Mixer
6. One book at a time or several at once?
– Several. Otherwise I get too attached to the one I read, and then lose the will to read more after I’m done.
7. Reading at home or everywhere?
– Everywhere!
8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?
– Silently. It’d take too long to read out loud.
9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
– I used to, but I don’t anymore.
10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
– I keep it like new if I feel like this won’t be the book I’ll want to keep. So I save it, then someone else can enjoy it as if it was new. But if it’s mine, then the game’s on.
11. Do you write in your books?
– In those that I want to keep forever, yes. I mark things I enjoyed, I make notes, etc.

Tag: Halloween!

– “Metro 2035” by Dmitry Glukhovsky; I reviewed this book, will not repeat myself.

2. Trick or treat- what character is a treat, what character is a trick? 
– Treat – Lucien Vaudrey from A Charm of Magpies; Trick – Nicaise from Captive Prince

3. Candy corn- what book is always sweet?
– The Holy Trinity of Trilogies: “Shades of Magic” by V.E. Schwab; “A Charm of Magpies” by K.J. Charles; “Captive Prince” by C.S. Pacat

4. Ghosts- what character would you love to visit you as a ghost?
– Alucard from Shades of Magic. But I hope he lives too long for that ever to happen.

5. Dressing up in costume- what character would you want to be for a day?
– Lucien Vaudrey from A Charm of Magpies

6. Wizards and witches- what is your favorite Harry Potter moment?
– The moment I realized Snape rewrote the textbook he was learning from. Dude!

7. Blood and gore- what book was so creepy that you had to take a break from it for awhile?
– Paige Dearth “Born Mobster“. I have a hard time reading of things like that in general.

Tag: The Outlander

What time is it? Oh, it’s time to steal another tag from P.S. I love that book! This time it’s a tad Outlander themed. Have you seen the series, or read the book? Kilts.

    1. You touch some standing stones, and get transported back in time. What year would you hope to land in?
      – Probably some time around WWII, because if I’m honest with you, I don’t find past all that attractive. Historical novels lie to you, never forget that when you’re feeling you’re starting to romanticize a time period where a common cold could’ve killed you, and gods forbid you were a woman.
    2. Claire is a very good nurse. What type of skill would you want to have that a fictional character excels at?
      – I’d still make jewelry, and possibly continue painting portraits too. Like elves, you know?
      1
    3. Jamie and Claire are ultimate relationship goals. Who is your favorite fictional couple?
      – Lucien Vaudrey and Stephan Day from A Charm of Magpies.
    4. Scotland has lots of castles, and we see quite a few in outlander. What fictional kingdom would you want as your own?
      – The Night Court.
    5. Outlander has some very steamy scenes. What is your favorite romance novel?
      – I think A Charm of Magpies wins here again!
      2
    6. The Jacobite rising is a huge plot point in the Outlander series. What book has your favorite battle in it?
      – There’s three. Vlad: The Last Confession had many good scenes. Dracula Vs. Hitler made me laugh when Dracula tore off man’s arm to slap another one with it. And then there’s Anno Dracula: Bloody Red Baron – the draconic creatures that attacked the British air craft. And they’re all Dracula books… There were a few real good scenes in A Charm of Magpies tho too.
    7. Jamie and Claire get married very unexpectedly. What fictional character would you want to marry on a whim?
      – No thank you. Lovers, friends, besties, that’s perfect.
    8. Scotland is a very beautiful place. What is one fictional world you would love to visit?
      – Red London!
      x_shadesofmagic
    9. If you could change the past, would you?
      – No. All things that happened might have resulted me ending up in this bad place, but then the people I met along the way are worth to suffer for.

Tag: Sick Book

The usual. On regular basis I check P.S. I Love That Book blog, and steal the tags I liked the most. If you do it – drop me a link. And if you do interesting tags – also drop me a link.

1. Diabetes: name a book that’s too sweet, like REALLY sweet.
I’ll be boring and say, in a good way it was “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” by Roald Dahl
x1

2. Chicken Pox: Name a book you only picked up once and never will again.
Anne Rice “Memnoch The Devil“, fifth book in the chronicles.
x2

3. The Flu: Name a popular book that spreads like a virus.
I am glad to say it’s C.S. Pacat “Captive Prince” trilogy for me, since right after I read it, I realized it is being read all over, and it even got some awards in some places I follow. Not the Twilight level, but then, not the Twilight level.
x3

4. The Cycle: Name a book that you reread yearly, or at least often.
Old, basically first love – John E. Stith “Reckoning Infinity
x4

5. Insomnia: Name a book that kept you up all night.
Andy Weir – The Martian. Morning came. Morning went.
x5

6. Amnesia: Name a book that you’ve forgotten or failed to leave an impact on your memory.
Andy Loriga – “Tokyo Doesn’t Love us Anymore
x6

7. Asthma: Name a book that took your breath away.
Dmitry Glukhovsky – Metro 2033
x7

8. Malnutrition: Name a book that lacks food for thought.
Elizabeth May – The Falconer. That’s because I’ve read many just like this one, with differences too minor to make a dent. Otherwise the book and the story in itself is not bad, and if you’re not too oversaturated with these – it’s a decent read, really.
x8

9. Travel Sickness: Name a book that took you on a journey.
V.E. Schwab – A Darker Shade of Magic. Parallel London counts, right?
x9

Tag: Creatures of the Night

Facebook was kind enough today to show me the post my friends over at [P.S. I love that book] made. And while I don’t normally do tags, I thought, hey, New Year is here, why not just DO things I’d not normally do? I was interested enough to read their answers, so why not provide my own, right? Right. Original video is here: [Book Tag], and you’re free to link me your post regarding this too, thanks!

Tag: 10 supernatural creatures: name your fav book featuring that particular creature.

  1. Vampire: While per se not fav vampire, still a fav vampire book currently would be [An Unattractive Vampire by Jim McDoniel]; for good humor, and impressive vampires. Humor is definitely the first things I get attracted to, so such lovelies as VtM, Anno Dracula, or even Vampire Chronicles – fell short at the might of the joke.
  2. Werewolf: Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. I liked the whole culture made up around them, how they are, what it’s like.
  3. Zombie: Pet Sematary by Stephan King. Honestly, might be the only book I’ve read with zombies in it in the first place…
  4. Ghost: Blackwood Farm by Anne Rice. Changed my life that book, it did. Or more like… Cracked the bubble I was in, and the hole just keeps growing.
  5. Witch/Warlock/Spellcaster: Currently it has to be A Charm of Magpies by K. J. Charles [1][2][3], and I’ve no comments to add.
  6. Fairy/Fae: I’m torn between Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris again (due to her great-nth-grandfather, not her, and only the book version), and [Dracula in Love by Karen Essex]. The latter book I kept naming as one of the bad books, but as I look back at it – hey, those fae people knew their shit, and Dracula had an interesting take on too.
  7. Demon: I have to go with my native author here and name [Naberijus by Jurgita Noreikiene] here. The nature of the demons there left an impression on me. And Bartimaeus by Johnathan Stroud just refused to be called a demon, so this is a no-go.
  8. Angel: [Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick], I believe they’re the only books with angels in them that I’ve read. And I haven’t read the last one yet either. Wasn’t bad, just… Fell off the wagon.
  9. Alien: [The Military Form by Christopher Rowley]. I only ever got the second book. I was still fairly a kid, and just randomly found it among our books deep in the storage room. My love for books was just starting to bloom, and this was perfect. Yes, my reading days began with sci-fi, and I will always have a spot for it in my heart and shelves.
  10. Superpowered human: Got nothing better, nor worse than [The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson]. Turning into a different creature by chemicals you yourself mix up counts, right? There’s this kind of superheroes/villains in all the grand universes, I feel.

So that’s that then. Consider a shot at this yourself, and please let me know if you do.
