I snagged this from random ramblings and Lily's Book Shelf!

They're both kinda different though... hmm...

Do you snack while you read? If so, favourite reading snack
I usually like to keep food away from me if I'm reading, I'm such a messy eater! 

What is your favourite drink while reading?
This falls in the same place as the previous question. But since I've been reading before bed lately, if I'm really thirsty, it's apple juice.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
I don't write in my books! The most I do is fold a corner of the page to keep my place. But even that's starting to bother me.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
Like I mentioned, I fold a corner. Sometimes I write the page number down on the notepad on my phone... but if I'm falling asleep... folding it is!

Fiction, non-fiction, or both?
Both, but I enjoy Fiction a lot more. Though I do have a thing for memoirs. 

Are you the type of person to throw a book across the room or on the floor if the author irritates you?
No.... the book (and author) didn't do anything to me, why do I have to take it out on the book? My husband threw my Breaking Dawn book across the room once because it was 5AM and I would NOT put it down and go to sleep... but he was half asleep himself and I remember being so angry I wanted to kick him in the head lol!

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away?
I pretend I know what it means lol! I guess. Or assume. If it really bothers me later, I'll google it.

What are you currently reading?
Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr and The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan

What is the last book you bought?
Spells by Aprilynne Pike, Charmed & Enchanted by Nora Roberts, The Chronicles of Faerie: The Hunters Moon by O.R. Melling, Wicked Ties and Naughty Little Secret by Shayla Black. Great you ruined in my mailbox for next next week lol.

Are you the type of person that reads one book at a time, or can you read more than one?
I use to be a one book at a time type of person... but now I read a few books at a time. Something light and something intense and I'll read whichever I'm feel like that night.

Do you have a favourite time/place to read?
My room, above all is my favorite place to read. And as long as it's quiet, I'm fine. But I do prefer in my bed, cozy'ed up!

Do you prefer series books or stand alones?
I think about this all the time lol. I like stand alone's because once you finish the book, that's it. But then I don't because I usually want to know more. Like with The Clearing, I want to know what happens next! But then I like series because of the story lines that keep it going but at the same time I don't because... well I have to buy more books lol! I like both.

Is there a specific book or author you find yourself recommending over and over?
Lately it's been Elizabeth Scott and The Clearing. I'm obsessed with The Clearing. Oh and Lilli Feisty, but I don't have many friends that are into erotica. 

How do you organize your books? (by genre, title, author's last name, etc.)
Currently they're just piled up in my closet by order I buy them in. I don't have any room in my room for a bookcase, sadly. I'm trying to think of a more organized system though...


  1. Nice to read more about you!
