The lovely Merv@ Merv Reads tagged me in this, seriously go check out her blog. I don’t blog hop to her blog as much as I should. (sorry Merv!) Anyway the way this tag works, is I answer Merv’s Questions, ask my questions then tag some lovely dragons.
What’s the saddest book you’ve read?
Hmmm I cry a lot at books, I get emotionally attached to characters, I also feel emotions a lot when reading. I have a heart when I read, inconvenient when you become a new water feature in your bedroom xD The saddest one though, the epilogue to A Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare always hits me hard.
The book you’ve read/DNFed that you would never recommend
I’d still recommend them, but I’d make sure the person knew my thoughts and problems with the book. If they think it’s still for them, then go them. Not every book I dislike/DNF is a total write off, often it’s just because it’s not my cuppa. Might be someone else’s though 😉
What was your last 3 star read and why is it in between?
Lobster by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivin. I actually ended up buddy reading it spontaneously with Sam @ Fictionally Sam, it was fun and we have plans for more buddy reads soon.
As for why it’s 3 stars, I also give half stars but whilst I enjoyed the feels and the cute romance. The characters weren’t all thought out, some of the arcs flopped and a particular character’s arc was crap…the way they acted. Then how it all got explained quickly, pushed aside and I just…I’m not about that life, where characters act nastily and don’t get karma slap them in their faces.
An underrated book
I have many, mainly due to me lurking round reading backlist books. I still think The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa is an underrated series.
Fictional character that you actually hate
Oooo one I actually hate…Bella Swan from Twilight. Once upon a time I liked her, but I grew up and saw how flawed she was…I can cope with flawed. If they are flawed but likeable. Makes them more real you know, Bella though, I don’t think I can even remember any good traits of hers. And the way she treats both Edward and Jacob *shakes head*
Your opinion about Cover Reveal posts
I mean, I don’t really read them. But if you want to do them, then you do you, it’s your blog after all.
- A book/series you picked up, which has taught you something invaluable
- What do you wish book covers had more of?
- Genre you don’t read much of and why?
- 3 Songs you’ve been listening to on repeat
- Favourite backlist book/series?
- If you could go back in time, and give yourself some advice at the start of your blogging journey, what would you have said?
