***Before we start, I want to make a note that if you ever tag me, please tag a blog post so that I can see it. For some reason due to my theme, I won’t get a notification/ping-back if you tag my about me or blog link. Thanks so much! Let’s get started!***


  1. What are you reading right now?
    Odd & True by Cat Winters
  2. What was your favourite read from 2016?
    OMG so many to choose from but I’ll have to say Illuminae by Aime Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
  3. What is your favourite read of 2017 so far?
    The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Definitely started off the year with a bang!
  4. Do you read more than one book at once? Why? Why not?
    The only time I ever read two books at once is if I am reading a fiction (any sub genre in this category) book and take a break to read a poetry book which doesn’t happen all the time. I cannot read two fiction books or two poetry books at the same time. My mind does not do well at all lol. I admire people who can read multiple books at the same time.
  5. Do you enjoy reading classics?
  6. What is your ideal reading spot?
    My bedroom, I can read well on my bed or the floor lol.
  7. Do you read when you travel?
    No I do not!!! I usually can read on the plane or car ride but I do not read on vacation.
  8. How many books do you read in a month (approximately)?
    My reading has slowed down tremendously this year due to being an author now lol. I would say 3-4 books per month.
  9. How many books do you read in a year (approximately)?
    About 50 to 60 books per year but that most likely will be lower this year.
  10. What is your favourite genre? Why?
    OMG this is so hard! No it isn’t lol it’s a tie between anything YA and poetry. I feel like I connect most to these genres, poetry for personal reasons and YA for the fun. I love reading action packed YA stories, oh it just takes me to another world!
  11. Do you read more during a particular season than other seasons?
    I read a lot more during Fall/Winter/Spring seasons because once summer comes, I have a lot of guest in my household *side eye* and that messes with my reading time.


I suck at tagging people and making questions up so I will definitely be passing this part lol. Call me a rule breaker? I would love to chat in the comments though! Do we have anything in common?

  1. Great answers for this award Gretchen. Oh Illuminae was one of my best reads of the year (I read it in 2015 though) and The Night Circus is always going to be one of my favourites, there a reason I try and re-read it at least once a year! 😀
    I definitely agree with your opinion on classics, and the favourite genre question would be an easy one for me. I always say I’d read anything but when it comes down to it I’m always going to love fantasy the most. 😀
    Great post! 🙂 ❤️

    • Thanks so much Beth!! I cannot wait for Obsidio! OMG I have so many emotions and theories when I think about it. Funny enough, I really thought I was never going to like Illuminae but that one really blew my mind. I do not blame you for trying to re-read The Night Circus, it is truly a magical place that I would love to visit. Fantasy is amazing!!!!!!!! Love it as well!

  2. You’ve had quality reads this year Twin! & of course! you already know we have a ton in common. My dad always found it weird that I found the floor comfortable for reading lol. Illuminae & The Night Circus were EPIC! & YAY you started Odd & True! *excited emoji* can’t wait to hear what you think about this one ❤ ❤ ❤

    • Thanks twin!! Lol the floor is just a comfy place for me (well in my own home of course lmfao). Ugh I just seriously love Illuminae and The Night Circus, I am anxiously waiting for Erin Morgenstern to release another book. Odd & True has such a dark vibe! Plus it takes place in the very early 1900s so I am loving it all already lol, here’s hoping it stays that way! ❤

      • Of course!!! Plus you have that soft rug which makes it easier lol. I used to have one in my room yeaaaaaars ago but now my wooden floors seem a bit less inviting 😂

        I think we’re all waiting on Erin Morgenstern to deliver us another masterpiece but maybe it’s the pressure that keeps her away? 🤷🏻‍♀️😂 ahhhh! I’m really anticipating Odd & True! Love time pieces so I’m sure to enjoy, hope it’s a LOVE IT for you 😉


  3. This is a fun tag! I haven’t seen it around in a long time. It’s really informative. I know I’ve said it a billion times, but I am SO GLAD you enjoy The Night Circus. Totally one of my favorite books. And Illuminae too, obviously. 😉
    Are you surviving all your house guests?!
