Flower Book Tag

For day #2 of Summer week I’m doing the Flower Book Tag. I decided to do this tag because flowers remind me of Summer. Enjoy!

Daffodil- a book about unrequited love

P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han. While this book isn’t focused around unrequited love it does have an element of it. There is definitely a relationship where someone wants to be more than friends and the other person wants to remain friends. I think that most books have relationships involving insta-love. Another common situation is a love triangle made up of a girl, her best male friend, and a boy she’s met recently. P.S. I Still Love You may fall into the love triangle category but I think it’s written in an enjoyable (and not cheesy) way.

Since it’s a few weeks into Summer I’ll be posting Summer related posts all week. Enjoy!

A book with a summery cover

my life next door

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. This is definitely the most summery book cover I have. Everything from the colors, to the outfits, to the setting screams Summer.

Rainbow Book Tag

This tag was originally created by Lebookchronicles.
The Rules:
– Choose your favourite book from each colour.
– If you do not own a book of a certain colour, just choose one that has the colour on it somewhere.
– It has to be a book you own and/or has to be the exact edition you read.

I’m only going to be doing one book from each author or else this would just be Vampire Academy and Percy Jackson. Enjoy!

Reader Problems Book Tag

Happy Fantastic Friday (or whatever day you’re reading this on)!!!!   -Emily

 

You have 20 000 books on your tbr. How do you decide what to read next?

When choosing which book to read next I usually just go with whatever I’m feeling. I often find myself more inclined to read books that I’ve recently acquired. Recently I’ve been more inclined to contemporaries since I’ve read a lot of fantasy recently.

You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you quit or are you committed?

I’ve never given up on reading a book but I do read multiple books at a time. One of my least favorite books of all time Wicked by Gregory Maguire took me over two and a half years to complete. If I don’t like a book it become less of a priority but I will still try to finish it.

The end of the year is coming and you’re so close, but so far away on your Goodreads reading challenge. Do you try to catch up and how?

I HATE reading challenges. As soon as I start to put pressure on myself to read it becomes a chore. If I feel like I’m forcing myself to read or if I’m paying too much attention to how much I’m reading it isn’t fun anymore. I never want to put myself in a situation where I’m not enjoying reading. I avoiding reading challenges all together to create a more pleasant reading experience for myself.

The covers of a series you love DO. NOT. MATCH. How do you cope?

Um……I don’t. Books look better with matching covers. It’s. A. Fact. Or at least my very strong opinion. I love how organized it looks when book covers and spines match. One of my biggest pet peeves is when a series has really nice covers but they are changed to a much uglier cover. I don’t understand why that happens and I hate it. I do not cope with book covers that don’t match.

Everyone and their mother loves a book you really don’t like. Who do you bond with over shared feelings?

One of my friends also reads a lot. While she and I both read a lot we don’t read many of the same books. Even though we don’t read the same books we still talk about things we did and did not enjoy in the books we read.

You’re reading a book and you’re about to start crying in public. How do you deal?

hahahah I don’t leave my house. In all seriousness I don’t cry while reading books. The only book that has really made me cry was Marley and Me. However if I were about to start crying in public I would go to the bathroom.

A sequel of a book you loved just came out, but you’ve forgotten a lot from the prior novel. Will you re-read the book?

No. I have enough books on my tbr without adding re-reading to the list. I can usually piece together what happened in the first book while reading the second book.

You do not want anyone, ANYONE, borrowing your books. How do you politely tell people no when they ask?

I don’t really have this problem. There’re only three people who I let borrow my books, but no one else really asks. The people who I lend my books to understand how much my books mean to be and are very careful with them. I’m very close with the people I lend my books to. If you don’t know me well don’t ask to borrow my books.

You’ve picked up and put down 5 books in the last month. How do you get over your reading slump?

I don’t force myself to read. If I’m going through a reading slump I usually take a break from reading and watch a lot of YouTube/Netflix. Forcing myself to read always ends in me disliking a book I may have liked under other circumstances.

There are so many new books coming out that you’re dying to read. How many do you actually buy?

One or two. I always buy the one or two books I’m most interested in. If I still want the other books after a few months I’ll probably buy them at a later date.

After you’ve bought the new books you can’t wait to get to, how long do they sit on your self before you get to them?

If I don’t read the books within a month of getting them they’ll stay on my shelf for anywhere from a month-years.

 

These questions were all created by the creator of the tag.
