The Book Blogger Test Tag

Hey everyone! I thought I would do this little tag because today’s post were all promo stuff so I needed to something that wasn’t promo. So here it is! I am also going to be doing tags every month so if you have any tags you want me to do make sure to comment it.

So this post was inspired by Lauren from Bookmark Lit. You can check it out here! Let’s get to the tag.

What are your top three book hates?

I always hate it when

a) You lend a book to someone and they just cannot take care of it.

b) Waiting a year for a book when the author left you hanging.

c) Spoilers.

Describe your perfect reading spot.

My perfect reading spot is probably on my bed, in the car, or on my dad’s friend’s couch which is so comfy! I usually will either sit on top of my bed when reading or tucked into the blankets…especially when it’s cold.. 🙂

Tell us three book confessions.

1)…..I judge books by covers. Yes I know. “Never judge a book by it’s cover,” but honestly it’s so hard. I’m not going to stop and read all the synopsis(es) in a bookstore because it’s too many. I look at the cover and if it catches my eye then I’ll look at the synopsis. I’ll also judgeby title when i’m looking at spines. The thing is the cover is made to be eye catching so if the cover isn’t eye catching…sucks.

2) I don’t do paranormal. Sometimes fantasy. I know being a book blogger you should read everything but paranormal I just can’t read. I can’t. It’s something I just can’t read. It takes me so long and it’s a slim chance I will actually enjoy. Now as fantasy goes….I can read certain ones. Some get boring but fantasy I can’t live through.

3) Hunger Games got me reading. I was in 4th grade when I got into Hunger Games and that just got me into reading. I then read Matched and Cinder and later Harry Potter. So I wasn’t the earliest person but hey! I’m here now. Reading. Being hipster. 😀

When was the last time you cried during a book?

Now when I read books….I usually don’t start sobbing but…I tear up. (If that counts…?) The last time I teared up was 2 days ago. I teared up…not cried. But legitimately cried was in May….

How many books are on your bedside table?

1. It just sits there for decoration. Just for decoration. Not reading. Decoration.

What is your favorite snack to eat while you are reading?

I try not to eat while eating. It prevents me from reading because I only have one hand…so I don’t eat. It’s very rare…trust me.

Name three books you would recommend to anyone.

I would recommend to anyone Since You’ve Been Gone by: Morgan Matson; Legend by: Marie Lu; and Let’s Get Lost by: Adi Alsaid.

Show us a picture of your favorite shelf on your bookcase.

Favorite shelf….this one.

Only because my favorite are on there.

Write what books mean to you in three words.

Three words…..um……

Explore; I get to explore different worlds or situation in every book

Diverse; Each story is different and the stories are never exactly the same.

Stories; There is a story in book 🙂

What is your biggest reading secret?

Ahhhmmmm…..biggest reading secret…. Okay. I have the tendency to skim descriptions in a book and read mostly the dialogue. I know thats bad but it’s not as bad now. It used to be done a lot but not anymore so I actually read the whole page now…

Tour Schedule

Shadows Fall Away

Mark Stewart is one incident away from becoming a juvenile delinquent, and his parents have had enough. They ship Mark off to London England to stay with his eccentric aunt Agatha who is obsessed with all things Jack the Ripper. After a strange twist of luck, Mark is struck by lightning, and he wakes to find himself in 1888 Victorian London.

His interest in a string of murders Scotland Yard has yet to solve make him a likely suspect. After all, why would a young boy like Mark know so much about the murders? Could he be the ripper they’ve been searching for? Convinced the only way to get back home is to solve the murders, Mark dives headfirst into uncovering the truth.

Mark’s only distraction comes in the form of the beautiful Genie Trembly, a girl who is totally out of his league and who may have already caught the attention of the infamous ripper. To save her, he’ll endanger both their lives, and risk being trapped in the past forever.

Release Day Launch: The Fine Art of Pretending by: Rachel Harris

The Fine Art of Pretending

According to the guys at Fairfield Academy, there are two types of girls: the kind you hook up with, and the kind you’re friends with. Seventeen-year-old Alyssa Reed is the second type. And she hates it. With just one year left to change her rank, she devises a plan to become the first type by homecoming, and she sets her sights on the perfect date—Justin Carter, Fairfield Academy’s biggest hottie and most notorious player.

With 57 days until the dance, Aly launches Operation Sex Appeal and sheds her tomboy image. The only thing left is for Justin actually to notice her. Enter best friend Brandon Taylor, the school’s second biggest hottie, and now Aly’s pretend boyfriend. With his help, elevating from “funny friend” to “tempting vixen” is only a matter of time.

But when everything goes according to plan, the inevitable “break up” leaves their friendship in shambles, and Aly and Brandon with feelings they can’t explain. And the fake couple discovers pretending can sometimes cost you the one thing you never expected to want.
