Hey guys! I really hurt myself during P.E. today so I didn’t go to my sister’s Taekwondo performance and whilst I feel guilty and sorry for not being there as I really would have liked to been, it does give me the opportunity to write a post! So here are 25 bookish facts about me! Keira x.
#25: I can only read contemporaries when it is warm and sunny, or at least for the most part.
#24: I love to read about the Napoleonic Wars or the Victorian Era (or fantasy books based on those time periods).
#23: I first learned to read in my head at the age of 6.
#22: I love discussing books, but I get frustrated very quickly if people are too stubborn about their opinions.
#21: I reorganise my bookshelf a lot.
#20: I love bookmarks and always use actual bookmarks in my books, although I used to just remember the page number.
#19: I have the original Kindle Touch.
#18: I tab and annotate and even highlight books, especially non-fiction or if they are for school (other times I am often a bit lazy).
#17: When I have a bind up of a series or a book with multiple parts, I put washi tape on the long edge of the page with the title/part written on it to show me where each one begins and ends.
#16: I can read in both English and German, although English is my mother tongue, which makes it easier to read in English.
#15: I love when books have realistic sex scenes/discussions about sex or other ‘taboo’ topics.
#14: I hate shiny covers on books, they just feel more tacky.
#13: I read the fastest and enjoy reading the most when I am alone in the house and it is peaceful and quiet.
#12: I often find it hard to go back to the beginning of a series before I have read them all (like rereading them before they’ve all come out), so I tend to just reread the most current book.
#11: I love when a book is not only beautiful on the cover and spine, but the inside decor/appearance of the book as well as the back of the book are also paid attention to and pretty.
#10: It takes me less time to read books on my Kindle than it does to read physical copies of a book, partially because I can lie on my side and partially because I’m not constantly seeing how far through I am.
#9: I love choosing books for other people and trying to find something they will like.
#8: I buy most of my books online because I do not currently live in an English speaking country (but I will be soon, which is exciting!)
#7: The series that first got me into reading was the Rainbow Magic series by Daisy Meadows.
#6: When I first got my laptop I didn’t read much for a whole year and then I started reading more again. My friend Amadea has experienced a similar thing, but it took her two years instead 🙂
#5: I really hate the trope of there being a pre-established relationship and someone coming in and trying to break them up.
#4: I can only read historical fiction in Winter or when it is colder outside.
#3: My 5 star means a lot of different things. It ranges from ‘no complaints’ to ‘this was the most amazing freaking thing I’ve ever read’.
#2: I often change 5 star ratings to 4.5 star ratings after a couple of days.
#1: I will DNF a book if I don’t like it.
