It’s time for another tag! I’m now being tagged in these at a more reasonable rate, so hopefully if anyone wants to tag me in anything it won’t take me a month to post my response any more! Today I’m doing the Ten Bookish Questions Tag. I was tagged by Danni @ ForBooksSake. If you haven’t already, please check out her amazing blog!
How many books do you currently own?
This is actually impossible for me to answer, because my books are a bit scattered! According to GoodReads, it’s 519, but I that’s probably lowballing it.
How many books are you currently reading?
Two! I have a long term project ((I have previously received PR products from Penguin) Gravity’s Rainbow) going on at the moment. Usually, I’m only reading one at a time.
Choose a couple of books you read but didn’t enjoy?
Mostly Hero by Anna Burns is a recent one. I usually like the books I read, though, so I’ll have to go and do a deep dive to find the second… According to GoodReads, I also rated A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb really low. I remember being disappointed by that book, because I love the poem its title comes from!
A cover buy?
Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell!
A book you haven’t read in years?
(I have previously received PR products from Penguin) The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I read it in around 2013, and I remember going to an advance screening of it and sobbing.
A book you will always recommend?
There are a few! Of ones I’ve read in the last few weeks, I’d say (I have previously received PR products from Penguin) Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo.
All time favourite book series?
I don’t read that many series, but I did really like The Hunger Games as a teen!
Where do you read?
Sofa or bed mostly!
What are the last two books you gave a 5 star rating?
According to GoodReads, it was Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine, and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I don’t often give out 5 stars!
