25 Bookish Facts About Me

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.

  1. I love reading historical fiction in the winter, it feels more fitting. And I also read faster on my kindle than with the physical book but I’m not sure why.

      It does feel more fitting! Maybe because it is easier to read on the Kindle?

  2. Noo, I’m sorry you injured yourself. 😦 Hope you’re feeling better now, though!

    I tend to do that to 5 star books too. Sometimes, when you get out of the book, you’re on such a high from everything that you don’t fully realize that it wasn’t so perfect. That’s why I wait before giving a book 5 stars until I’m absolutely certain that I believe it deserves the stamp of apparent perfection.

    Where are you moving? Moving can be so exciting yet terrifying at the same time. When I moved to New York, the first thing I did was visit the Strand Bookstore, ha. 😀

      Thank you, I’m feeling much better now! I think waiting a bit tends to give you a more realistic view of a book in general. I’m moving to a village about 30min from Cambridge (the one in England :D), so I’m going to go around all of the bookshops; it is bookshop heaven.

      Was the Strand Bookstore good?
