The Book Blogger TMI Tag!

Yes, I'm finally getting around to doing this. *fist pumps into the air* I believe this tag was created by the lovely Amber over at The Mile Long Bookshelf - huge thanks go out to Zoe from Bookhi and Hawwa from It Was Lovely Reading You for tagging me.


How old are you?
I'm 16. Trust me, it's not as spectacular as it's made out to be in movies. >.>

What book are you reading?
I've got a few going on at the moment which is unlike me but they are The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1984 by George Orwell and I just started Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff last night.

What are you wearing?
I'm very stylish today. Plaid pink, green, purple and blue pyjama bottoms and a dark blue vest top - yup, I'm still in my sleeping attire 'cause I am THAT lazy.

OTP?
Most recently I'd have to say Mary and Francis from the TV show, Reign. I am completely OBSESSED with that show at the moment - you need to all watch it! Summary: It revolves around Mary Queen of Scots when she was a teenager! xD

Blogger or Wordpress?
Why blogger, of course.


Going outside being active or staying in and reading a book?
I've actually been going out more often than I've been reading lately so I'll have to pick both. Sorry, I couldn't imagine giving one of them up.

What is the last book you read?
Ten by Gretchen McNeil. 'Twas good.

What is the book you're going to read next?
I don't really schedule what books I'm going to read... I just go with my mood and see what turns up. :)

eBooks - yes or no?
Hmmm... Depends what mood I'm in. :/

Where do you prefer to read?
Weird as it is, at a table. Or in my bed.

Who is the last person you tweeted?
Kezia from Chapteriosity - we were complaining about exams. Casual stuff, y'know.

Who's blog did you look at last?
Zoe's Bookhi but I usually have tabs up of all the blogs in my blog list... ;P

Who is your favourite blogger?
No way can I answer this. I love way too many bloggers.
 
Who is your favourite booktuber?
I can't narrow it down to just one. I love Christine from polandbananasBOOKS, Sasha from abookutopia, Heather from Bookables, Lucy from thebumblingbibliophile and Amber from The Mile Long Bookshelf. :)

What do you do when someone tells you reading is boring?


Who is the last author you spoke to?
I *think* it was Hafsah Laziaf on twitter... I was telling her about how I got her book for Christmas. ;3

Who is the last person you texted?
My last text was in a group chat with my friends, I think.

Who is your all-time favourite book character?
*looks pointedly at you with a look of contempt* You really have to ask? Ugh, last time. WILLIAM HERONDALE.

UKYA or USYA?
Most of my fave books are USYA so I'm going to have to go with that.

What is your preferred drink whilst reading?
I don't think I drink at all when I read. *shrugs*

If you hated reading, what would you be doing instead?
Watching even MORE movies than I already do.

How many bookshelves/bookcases do you have?
Four tiny shelves, books are piled up every which way on top of each other - it's a mess. I'm *hoping* to get some larger shelves soon when my room gets done up though. :)

If you had the choice to meet all of your favourite book bloggers or all of your favourite authors, which would you pick? You can only pick one.
Don't even have to think about this, book bloggers. I wanna meet my fellow fangirls (and fanboy ;D) so bad! :3

Insta-love- yes or no?
Sometimes it works in a book and I'm not bothered about it but I prefer when a relationship develops and builds up steadily and, when the couple finally gets together, you're just like:




Favourite author?
My most hated question because I just can't choose. :O Veronica Roth ('cause she's the author of my favourite book!), Cassandra Clare ('cause she's the creator of Will...), J.K. Rowling (no explanation needed) and Ally Carter ('cause her spy series is too good)! :)

What is the number-one book on your wishlist?
Probably Idols by Margaret Stohl - the sequel of Icons which I adored! :')

Do you prefer books with female or male protagonists?
Female. For some reason I pretty much despise most male protagonists when I read a book from their POV... I do want to start the Percy Jackson series though - here's hoping I won't hate him!

Which is your favourite book-to-film adaption?
One of the Narnia films probably. The visuals are incredible, the acting is phenomenal and you really do feel like you're in another world when watching one.

What is the last song you listened to?
I was dancing like crazy around the kitchen yesterday but I can't remember what it was I was listening to... It's all a blur. ;P

Which do you enjoy reading more - negative reviews or positive reviews?
I love reading positive reviews where you can practically hear the fangirling squeals, but negative reviews are so interesting and I like hearing other peoples' takes on a book that I, myself, loved.

Who are you going to tag?
Ahhhh! I'm so late in doing this that anyone I tag has probably already done it but:
 
Catherine from The Book Parade,
Kyra from Blog of a Bookaholic,
Francoise from My Crazy Bookish World,
AND Kayla from The Bookish Owl ;)

You've probably already done it but, if you haven't, you should! :)

Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo

You'd think it'd be uncomfortable but I can stretch my legs out to prop my feet up on the opposing chair and everything, so it's all cool. ;D WE MUST MEET ONE DAY! SO glad you enjoyed Icons!! xD

  3. Absolutely love this tag! It's so much fun! A book-blogger meet-up would be so much fun, and I loved the shout-out to Jack as the fan-boy! I actually prefer USYA too, as I always seem to read more of those books, like The Hunger Games, Divergent and my current read, The Matched Trilogy, are from US authors. I actually had to DNF Icons as I couldn't get past page 50. It was too much! May give it another go though.

    1. It really was fun answering all the questions! AND OH MY GOSH, A BOOK BLOGGER MEET UP WOULD BE THE BEST THING EVER! Of course I couldn't forget Jack. ;) Oooooh, you must keep updated on how you're doing with the Matched books! The overall series was more or less so-so for me really. ;3 Awe, that's a real pity - I guess I just fell in love with the storyline, and the characters. Who am I kidding? I kinda adored everything about it! A lot of people don't seem to share the same opinion though - was there anything, specifically, you didn't like? ;P
