I've been pondering over the last few days what to actually do for my 100th post but frankly my brain was dishing up peanuts so I reckon it'll be miles easier just to do a normal post for now and have a good chatty post at another time :P
Erm I'm not sure actually, but I reckon the 1st Harry Potter book was a fav when I was 8
I'm currently reading the Alchemist's Daughter by Katherine McMahon
None, I don't tend to request books
I keep buying more books than I have the time to read? :P
Nothing at this present moment but I'm hoping to check out the Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness later
nope and I don't plan on getting one
I tend to read one at a time but occasionally I'll read bits of several
I reckon they've changed slightly, I think I'm more critical of the books I read but nothing major
Possibly Fallen by Lauren Kate, it was just meh and I'm not all that bothered about Torment
So far, The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness - unbelievably amazing
Not very often, I like sticking with what I know I like
YA fiction, Paranormal, Fantasy, and Historical Fiction
Probably I can read in the car but I've never properly tried on a bus
In bed mostly or somewhere comfy
Only trusted individuals may borrow my books, any damage and I lynch ya! :P
*le gasp* Heaven forbid!!
*faints* How can you suggest such a thing?!
Only if they were my own textbooks
Well English although I should be able to read in French (but I'm not very good)
It's a mixture of the story and the characters but I can forgive a mediocre plot if the characters are amazing
How late I stay up to finish it and my rating
Fantasy I guess
Non-fiction, I really should read more actual history books cos I find it interesting
I've only read two biographies and neither were fantastic
Yeah sort-of do writing books count?
I don't have one - I don't really like cooking although I do own cookbooks
Erm I don't know if I'd call any of the books I've read "inspirational" *ponders*
Hmm I dunno I can't remember any specific book which I was disappointed with because of hype
Well if the majority of reviews I see of a book are positive I'm likely to enjoy it too
If I really didn't like a book I wouldn't review it on my blog, but kinda meh books I'll still review
Well since I study French and Spanish I'd kinda like to be able to read well in both
The Count of Monte Cristo - that thing is *massive*! Although it's actually a pretty fast-paced read
A Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray - I've been putting it off cos it's a rather beefy-looking book
I don't have one - I don't read poetry cos most of it just goes over my head
Usually no more than 3
I've done it at least 6 times when I just haven't got into the book
God that's too difficult I have loads!
Argh again I can't choose!! (I'll do another post on this in the future maybe)
Any I fancy taking really I'm not one for differentiating between "beach" books and normal ones
Probably no more than a week and a half?
Wuthering Heights , I got about 40 pages in and gave up. I may try again one day
TV I cannot concentrate on a book if I'm in a room with a TV
Hmm I'm rather wary of most film adaptations but I *adore* the Lord of the Rings films
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - just too much was left out of that
I can't quite remember but I think I may have once spent £56 in one go two years ago
Not very often at all, I don't like to flick through at random in case I spot a spoiler
Erm falling asleep?
Heck yea, I'm an organisational freak
Nah I'm a hoarder, and I will often re-read books at some point in the future
Probably although I can't remember precisely which books
Catching Fire - that ending coupled with the fact that I had to wait almost a year to read Mockingjay made me rather tetchy :P
Cracked up to be by Courtney Summers - Parker was a total bitch yet I really liked her
The Summer I turned Pretty by Jenny Han - I expected to like it more than I actually did
Any of my Tamora Pierce books, I love reading her books when I want a great comfort re-read
So there you go folks, I've tried to keep my answers short to save y'all a ton of reading. At another time I'm gonna try and do some posts about my favourite male and female characters and my favourite villains so keep an eye out for those in the next few weeks.
This has taken me a good hour or two to answer but it's been fun, I always like these types of meme. I hope everyone is having a good Thursday and YAY for my 100th post!! *dances*
