The Book Blogger Test: Part One

Hello! I was recently tagged by Emily @ Reader Rising to be apart of this Book Blogger Test. I haven't heard of it before, so I'm going to go off of Emily's example and do this in two parts... I hope she's okay with that.

Anyway, let me answer these bookish questions now.

What are your top three book pet hates?

1) I am kind of OCD when it comes to book covers, so when the books get a new artist mid series... I want to cry. It happened with one of my favorite series, Pendragon... I still cringe a bit when I see it on my shelf.

2) An anticlimactic ending. Oh! Those are THE WORST! *cough, cough* Breaking Dawn *cough, cough*

3) Characters who are too young for the amount of romance they have. I may live in my own little bubble, but I still think it's weird when characters under sixteen have intense love relationships. That's my own opinion.

Describe your perfect reading spot.

Well, truth be told, I don't have one. But, if I had bay window with a bench to read on while it was raining. THAT would be perfect. Unfortunately, A) I don't have a bay window and B) I live in The Valley of Arizona where it never freaking rains!

Tell us three bookish confessions.

1) With my OCD tendencies I place my books on the shelf from last to first. (It drives my cousin crazy, hehe)

2) I stress when people who borrow my books have them for too long. I am a hoarder of books. Once I own them, I keep them and love them... forever.

3) I am always afraid to see the movie version of one of my favorite books. To the point that it sometimes stresses me out. Ya, I know. I'm a freak.

When was the last time you cried during a book?

City of Heavenly Fire. Seriously the best ending to an epic series! The Iron Knight. I LOVE ASH!

How many books are on your beside table?

Well, I don't have a book side table... so... yeah.

I'll continue this in part two in a couple days. Thanks Emily for this fun little Book Blogger Test!


  1. I love that you did this, how fun!

  2. Very fun. I get anxious too when they do YA movies. Some great, some not so much

    1. And unfortunately, of late, I've seen the not so much ones...

  3. Nice answers. I've been tagged a few times and hope to actually manage to do my answers by next week, but we will see. I hate cover changes halfway through a series, IT SUCKS!!!! Gah, Breaking Dawn was the most rubbish ending to a book ever. So happy they added in a fight scene to the film, even if it wasn't real. I agree with 3 too, it shouldn't be as intense and all consuming as some books make it.

    1. I am so glad that they put that fight in the movie to. It totally made me (well, sort of) like the sucky ending. I was very surprised during the movie actually that the fight actually happened and was going on, I thought they totally changed the ending, which made me sort of mad--because I do like it when movies stick to the books. In the end, the movie was far better.

  4. Very fun! I think I'm one of the few book bloggers who ISN'T a book hoarder - I LOVE to read them, but I don't feel the need to keep most books forever. But I would totally stress about loaning out the few books that I DO want to keep forever because I have a crazy need to keep my books in pristine condition!

    1. I do too. I totally had a friend once who returned a book almost ripped in half. I had to tape it. I almost cried. Let's just say I made excuses to not lend her anything again. That may be horrible, but considering how my book came back...
