Knowing myself by then I will have had at least three breakdowns and at least one panic attack.

Just for one of my classes I already have about 100 pages to read for next Monday and for another I have to learn every country in Africa, where they are in a map, their capitals and at least three African dialects. It’s only week 2 and I already feel like crying.

The professors from these two classes are called “the horsemen of the apocalypse” by the international relations students.

Rule 1: Always post the rules

Rule 2: Answer all the questions the person who tagged you asked and then write 11 new ones

Rule 3: Tag 11 people and link them to the post

Rule 4: Actually tell them you tagged them.

Questions:
-Do you like to read while going to places?
ABSOLUTELY! Reading and traveling are just perfect, especially since so many stories have their characters going on some sort of journey.
-Do you read with music or do you need absolute silence?
Music, always music. Its just perfect when a song is playing that suits the current events of the story.
-The worst book you ever read?
It was a series and it was the Marked series. I refuse to pick it back up again.
-What do you hate in a book?
I don’t like reading a brand new book and feeling like I have read it before. I don’t like when someone uses the exact same word over and over again to describe something either.
-What book releases are you excited about this year?
Well, the sequel to The 5th Wave comes out in September and then they are releasing the new edition box set of Percy Jackson in June. Both of which I’m REALLY looking forward too.
-What book to movie adaptions do you have high hopes about?
The Maze Runner, The Giver (though I agree with just about everyone that it should be in black and white), and Elaenor and Park. I haven’t read the book yet but I’m already in love with the author from Fangirl so I’m beyond excited.
-How many books have you read for the year?
If you include and count manga, then 63 books.
-Do you get angry when people interrupt you from reading?
The first few times, no. But if I am obviously reading and you continued to try and conversate with me, then yes. It’s happened numerous times with the boyfriend, especially when he gets mad at me for not listening to him.
-Have you ever ditched a day or date with a friend/bf/gf to read?
Absolutely.
-Favorite book quote?
Oh gosh, this changes all the freaking time. I really don’t have one.

MY QUESTIONS:
-What do you love about reading?
-How many books do you read at a time?
-What do you think the worst thing about reading is?
-How do you choose the next book to read?
-Name your biggest pet peeve as a reader.
-If you could meet any author, dead or alive, and spend the day with them, who would you choose and why?
- What are your favorite genres?
-Name one book you read that you didn’t expect to enjoy, but you did?
-Name one movie adaptation of a book that you enjoyed.
-Same as above but one that you hated.
- Favorite Time to read?

Aw, I love the best friend one! I’m from Scotland, UK and rainy rains is all we ever get, honestly they are nice once in a while but when they last for over a week you begin to miss the sun!

He is pretty much my only friend (:
I would love to visit Scotland! I complain all the time about how hot it is and how it is sunny all the time but I am sure if I moved to a place that got more rain, I would miss the warm, sunny days here.

Woo! I was tagged by jaebooks, thank you!

Rule 1: Always post the rules.
Rule 2: Answer all the questions the person who tagged you asked and then write 11 new ones.
Rule 3: Tag 11 people and link them to the post.
Rule 4: Actually tell them you tagged them.

Questions

1. What do you use as book tags? (Do you have a favourite one or do you use toilet paper?)

I try to just remember the page numbers, but if I’m in a hurry I use whatever’s closest. Sometimes cards, pens, other books.

2. What’s the first book you remember reading?

James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl 

3. Do you feel pressured to read classics?

Maybe a little bit when I hear numerous references to a certain book that I haven’t read yet. But overall I love reading the older stuff. 

4. What’s your favourite book cover?

I always liked covers that look hand drawn

5. Do you usually like the books assigned for school, which one was your favourite?

Most of the time I like them, but there are the rare ones that I have come to loathe. Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes we read freshman year. I’d say it’s my favorite assigned book because I had never heard of it before and ended up falling in love with it. 

6. You watch a movie, then find out it’s based on a book. Do you read it, or would you feel like it’s already spoiled?

I don’t feel like I would be spoiled because the majority of the time the movie leaves out an ass ton of details or goes on a completely different tangent, becoming it’s own work of art. A movie only gives you a glimpse of the story while the book can give you the whole world. 

7. Reading  in the mornings, afternoons or nights?

If I have the energy to read in the morning, I’ll do nothing but read the rest of the day. Normally I save my reading time for the late afternoon/nighttime. 

8. Do you research a lot before reading a book? (reading reviews, making sure its got a good rating on goodreads)

Sometimes, yeah, if the back of the book/inside the dust jacket is too vague. 

9. How many books do you read in a year?

About 70, depends on the year.

10. Can you read more than one book at a time?

Yup. 

11. Secret you want to share with the universe? Or alternative : How was your day?

Uhh… Some sharks are ovoviviparous, meaning that their young hatch within the mother shark. Sand tiger shark babies actually eat neighboring embryos within the womb until it is time for it to be born, leaving it the sole survivor. Crazy stuff.

My Questions

1. What do you have currently checked-out from the library?

2. Book you’re most excited about? (that’s yet to be published)

3. If you could read in any language, what would it be?

4. Buy new or used?

5. How do you organize your books? (by genre, author, color, ect.)

6. Do you like poetry? What about writing it?

7. Book you’re too nervous to begin?

8. Most you’ve spent in a bookstore?

9. Author you’ve read most books from.

10. Favorite quote

11. Random fact about yourself
