25 Bookish Facts About Me

I have missed blogging. Life has been crazy, and I haven’t had time to sit and write. I haven’t even had a ton of time to read either. Which sucks, cause last month I slayed my reading goal for the month of January. I will be lucky to get the two books done by the end of the month.

So quick book update is that I made a separate account on Instagram for my book obsession you can find me at “thereadinglass” if your interested! I like having a separate account for the bookstagram community and keep my regular instagram just for everyday life. Okay, moving on….

I saw YouTubers doing the 25 bookish facts about me tag and thought it looked interesting. I tag anyone who wants to do this tag, DO IT! Then let me know when you do so I can check it out! Here are my 25 bookish facts.

  1. I get book reccomendations mainly through YouTube and the blogging community. I like to follow people who have similar book tastes and see what their thoughts are for the book I am interested in.
  2. My first “book crush” was on Gilbert Blythe from Anne of Green Gables. Despite all the wonderful book boys I have come to love; Gilbert will always be my number 1.
  3. I either drink tea or coffee while reading. I don’t have a favorite for reading. It all comes down to the book I am reading and the mood I am in.
  4. I have never read Twilight. Even when all my friends were reading them and were begging me to join them, I did not. The story didn’t interest me and I don’t think it is fair to the book if I read it without having any interest. It’s not that I will never read Twilight, I just don’t have any interest at the moment.
  5. I like to listen to music while reading. I even make a set list of songs for a book that I think will go really well with the story and the characters.
  6. It was because of Outlander that I started digging into my family heritage. Turns out I am not just Irish but I have quite a bit of Scottish. I was even able to trace my ancestors to the Highlands. Hello Jamie!!
  7. I only threw a book once. I was really into the story and I loved the couple and then something terrible happened. I was so upset that I threw the book across the room ( OH the horror!!) and sat a cried my eyes out. I picked up the book made sure it was okay and continued reading. Haven’t read it again.
  8. I can read in the car. Most of the people I know can’t but I can.
  9. I watched all the Harry Potter movies before I read the books. I think it helped me separate the movies and books. The books are just wonderful!
  10. I took the Pottermor quiz and I am house Ravenclaw. I always knew I would be Ravenclaw and I am proud!
  11. I love Edgar Allan Poe.
  12. I am also a huge fan of Jane Austen. I have read 2 so far.
  13. I have a really old edition of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott that is in need to be replaced.
  14. I love the classic Nancy Drew books.
  15. I love pretty hardcover books for my self, but prefer to travel with a paperback.
  16. I change my lock screen or home screen to something related to the book I am currently reading.
  17. I like to have Lavender oil diffusing while I read to help me be calm and to focus on the story.
  18. My favorite smell is coffee and books, so going to a Barnes and Noble with a Starbucks is a small slice of heaven.
  19. I have not read the Fault in Our Stars because when I went to see the movie I cried buckets. I can only begin to imagine the emotional mayhem that would breakout if I read the book. The book will end up with tears and smeared ink.
  20. I cried more during the scenes with Jem and Will then the scenes with either of them with Tessa in Clockwork Princess. Love all three but Jem and Will… The feels!
  21. I prefer fiction over nonfiction.
  22. I am highly anticipating Crooked Kingdom the sequel to Six of Crows. I am more then ready to be with the crew again!
  23. My husband and I picked our baby girl name for when the time comes and it comes from a book or maybe I should say books 😉
  24. If I could, I would read ALL DAY. I also wouldn’t mind being able to write all day.
  25. I only follow a small handful of authors on social media. I like to be updated on books that I am waiting for.

Till next time!
