Name the most re-read book on your shelf.
Oh jeez. Okay. Uhm. I’m going to go with
because do you even KNOW how many different versions/adaptations/retellings of this book I’ve read? Do you know how many I OWN?! It’s a lot. And it takes the top spot for this question, no doubt about it.
Have you ever spoiled the ending of a book for yourself or others?
Erm. I don’t think so? I mean I HAVE spoiled the endings of books for others, BUT ONLY WHEN ASKED! And even then, I have to reeeeeeeally make sure they mean business and actually want to be spoiled, because I HATE being spoiled and hate to do that to other people. Usually though, I’m as spoiler-free as they come!
Do you read negative reviews?
Definitely! I like to read negative reviews of books I’ve read and loved, books I’ve read and loathed, AND books I haven’t read YET but am attempting to decide if I should. I think negative reviews can bring a lot of insight to a reader. Of course, some negative reviews should never be read EVER. It’s a very fine thread of tight rope.
Name a book you’ve lied about reading or not reading.
Anything I was *required* to read for classes. For the most part, I was SOOPAH bored by those books, and usually could get away with skimming or not reading at all. Also, STUPID HUCKLEBERRY FINN. I will throw that book into a raging fire if I EVER see it again. I read it SO MANY TIMES throughout middle/high school and college… SO MANY. I started lying about having actually read it, because I had the damn thing memorized.
No, really, you don’t understand. In college? I had the same professor pretty much every single semester, okay? And he loved…and I mean LOVED…this stupid book. Which meant we read this stupid book literally every semester. I got soooo sick of it. It is the only book I will maim on sight.
Series or standalones?
It…depends?! I know, that’s really not a helpful answer, but I honestly don’t care one way or the other. If the prose is pretty and the book wounds my porcelain heart, it doesn’t matter. Unless it DOES. By which I mean, if the standalone is SO soopah pretty and hurtful and gaaaaaaaaah and I find myself, at the end of the book, needing more. In which case, I will curse the fact it’s a standalone. But…this doesn’t happen often.
Name the book you’re currently reading.
Would you rather re-read the same book forever or forget every book you finish reading? (I’m so evil *insert evil laugh*)
Forget every book I finish reading…because then I can read them again, and again, and again, AND ALWAYS BE SURPRISED by the sneakeh heart-wrenching plot twists! I mean sure, I’ll never remember WHY said books are my favorites…but…REREADING!
