Hi Everyone! Hope you’re all having a great weekend. I’m going to be doing the New York Times By the Book tag today, which I was tagged to do last month by Emily at The Little Book Affair. If you haven’t already discovered Emily’s blog, I’d recommend that you do so now; it’s really great! 🙂 I haven’t actually seen this tag done that often, so I hope you’ll enjoy this post. OK, so on with the post:
What book is on your nightstand right now?
The One by Kiera Cass! I just can’t stop reading this series, the books are so full of charm and humour and the characters are just fantastic. Love them! ❤
What was the last truly great book you read?
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. This book made me feel so much, and I think that this is definitely a sign of a truly great book. My favourite book of 2016 so far!
If you could meet one author (living or dead) who would it be? What would you ask?
I think it would have to be J.K.Rowling. The Harry Potter series aren’t my most favourite books, but it’s obvious that J.K.Rowling is a fantastic author, so I would ask her some tips on how to write as amazingly as she does!
What books might we be surprised to see on your shelf?
Um, not sure really! I don’t think there is anything on there that would surprise you because you all know I read all sorts. 😉
How do you organise your personal library?
I basically just arrange them in the order of what series they are in or what genre category that they belong in. 🙂
What book have you always meant to read but haven’t gotten round to yet?
Room by Emma Donoghue. It’s just one of those books which isn’t very far up on my TBR because so many others have the priority with me. I’ve heard it’s fantastic though, so I’m definitely going to have to give it a read.
Disappointing, overrated, just not good: what book did you feel you were supposed to like but didn’t?
I was very disappointed with the second book in Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy: Insurgent because the first book was so promising, but the second book didn’t have much of a storyline and it just seemed to go on forever…
What kind of stories are you drawn to?
Anything that has a really intriguing blurb, a beautiful front cover or a lot of hype! 😄
If you could require the president to read one book, what would it be?
God, that’s a daunting question!! 😥 It’s actually a really hard one to answer. I’d probably get him to read The Hunger Games 🙂 .
What do you plan to read next?
I’m planning to do a bit more easy reading. I read an reviewed a great book about this time last year called Off the Page by Jodi Piccult and her daughter: Samantha Van Leer (reviewed here). Turns out there is a prequel which I managed to get hold of just this week! Yay! So I might read that, but my TBR is so long at the moment, haha, so it’ll just be a spontaneous decision probably. 😀
