The lovely Jamie over at The Perpetual Page-Turner posted this a couple weeks ago and invited other bloggers to join in on the fun. Although I’m a little late to the party, I still thought it would be a fun thing to take part in, so here goes…
Hmm…that’s a difficult one. I like Jamie’s answer of discovering Goodreads. BUT, I think I’d have to go with reading The Hunger Games trilogy. I don’t think I would be the reader I am today had it not been for those books. Because of THG, I became addicted to reading, discovered blogging and my love for it, and it made me aware of the awesomeness that is the YA genre.
Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons
Well, the big no-no genres for me are Non-fiction and Biographies. They just don’t interest me. But, there are also other words/topics that put me off of books.
Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer (756 pages)
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Just one big book shelf, but I also have some of my favourites on display in my living room and I have A LOT of books on my Kobo.
I haven’t yet!! But, I’m planning on reading Divergent and Insurgent right soon here, in preparation for Allegiant! And I’m absolutely positive that I will re-read The Hunger Games again in the future.
I really wish I could say the swing on my deck (because it will be), but I haven’t bought one yet! I plan to and it will be a fantastic place to read. Right now, I enjoy reading on my couch — I know, boring, huh?
I don’t know about it being inspiring or anything, but I really like this quote:
“Love is an element . . . Like air to breathe, earth to stand on.” — Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Well, I think this question can be interpreted multiple ways. I’m taking it as any regret having to do with reading, so my answer is: Not having found my love for reading sooner. I really only became an avid, addicted reader a little over a year ago. I’d always enjoyed reading, but not nearly as much as I do now. I used to prefer watching TV and such things and now my favourite past-time is READING!!
Darkness Rising Series by Kelley Armstrong. I read The Gathering, but have yet to read The Calling and The Rising.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Divergent by Veronica Roth, and…hmm…picking a third favourite is really difficult!…I guess I would pick Pivot Point by Kasie West.
Umm…The Hunger Games. Noticing a pattern here?
Allegiant by Veronica Roth. So excited to finish the trilogy!
Reading or blogging when I really should be doing other things, such as cleaning the house or similar chore-type duties. My house is always neglected when I’m in the middle of a good book!
The Girls by Lori Lansens. Borrowed this book from my Mom awhile ago and have yet to read it…
I think that would be The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (eBook version).
I actually find it difficult to read (and pay attention) when I’m tired, so I don’t tend to stay up late reading very often. The last time I really remember not being able to stop even though I was super tired was while reading The Hunger Games trilogy.
