I’m going through this routine where I finish all the things every day and then beat myself up for not doing enough. In need of some reframing.

Too much movement in the fanfic for #13, makes you motion sick I bet. *WINK WINK NUDGE NUDGE*

SO TRUE. reading smut on the bus is a health hazard.

okay continuing :D

15. What is your policy on book lending?

I will lend any book to anyone. I even sometimes “forget” books at other people’s homes when I want them to read it. 

23. Genre you rarely read (but wish you did?)

I think I would enjoy historical fiction more if I found the right authors.  I also used to enjoy mental health memoirs but stopped because I wanted to leave work at work. 

34. Most intimidating book you’re too nervous to begin?

The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood. I’ve started it 2-3 times and just stopped because it’s so big. I know I’ll love it but my poor attention span gets scared. 

51. Are there any books you’ve been avoiding?

Idk. Maybe The Fault in Our Stars? I tend to avoid books that everyone else reads. Also The Goldfinch bc all my friends told me to read it.

1. Favorite childhood book? 

I remember when I was like 6 or 7 I checked out this collection of poems called “The Baby Uggs are Hatching” from the school library about 3,000 times so let’s go with that. 

2. What are you reading right now?

I am reading The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon but it’s kind of slow and I may stop. 

3. What books do you have on request at the library?

None I picked them all up. 

4. Bad book habit?

Trying to finish books I hate. Life is too short. Currently trying to finish Super, Sad, True Love Story even though it’s agony. 

5. What do you currently have checked out at the library?

White Noise, The Man in the High Castle, and The Word Exchange.

6. Do you have an e-reader? My kindle but I probably read one kindle book for every 3 paper books. 

7. Do you prefer to read one book at a time, or several at once? One at a time. If I’m reading more than one I haven’t found something I love. AKA my current problem. 

8. Have your reading habits changed since starting a blog? Not really. If I’m knee-deep in OTP feelings I might stop reading as much, but I’m always reading. 

9. Least favorite book you read this year (so far?)

Logan’s Run. HORRIBLE. 

10. Favorite book you’ve read this year?

The Rook. The Rook. The Rook. I cannot say enough good things about The Rook. 

11. How often do you read out of your comfort zone? Not very often since I’ve been on a dystopia kick for the last two years. I really enjoy civil war novels but don’t read them as often. 

12. What is your reading comfort zone? Dystopia. Science fiction. 

13. Can you read on the bus? I usually send emails on the bus/metro. I get sick if I read. Especially fanfic? IDK why.
