Tag Tuesday – Ten Bookish Questions

Time for another Tag Tuesday! I was tagged by both Ellie from ReadtoRamble and Erika at AndOnSheReads to do this Tag. I loved getting to read there answers, some made me giggle. There are some real fiendish question, there were great fun to answer. This tag was originally created by  A Books Neverland!

How many books do you currently own?

Ahhhhhhh I dont know exactly and I am scared to count. If we included my four book bookshelves (600ish), all the books on the night stand(10+), my book cart(30+), those hidden in all the different shelves in the living room(40+), my kindle library(180+) and my audible library(200+) I must have between 1000 and 1100 books. But that is a big guess. Also alot of them are doubles, i often have the audio version of books I own physically or on kindle.

How many books are you currently reading?

Too many. I am currently reading 2 ARC, City of Glass with Ellie, two group reads with reading groups and I will most likely pick up an audio-book while I am working. This is how I tend to read a varying number of books all from different genres. Currently one of my ARCs is a Sci-Fi, the other is an Adult Historical Fantasy retelling, then one of my group reads is a YA fantasy and a middle grade. Therefore, I will probably opt for mystery audiobook.

Choose a couple of books you read but didn’t enjoy?

Harrow Lake and Paris Adrift are the lowest rated books I have read this year. I have reviews for both as they were both ARC copies. I didn’t get on with Harrow Lake at all, I had reservations about how mental health was treated within the book. Paris Adrift was unfortunately just rather dull.

A cover buy?

My latest cover buys have been re-releases of old favourites. The Inkheart trilogy by Cornelia Funke are just gorgeously designed and I just couldn’t resist snapping them up. They are just so gorgeous. bringing out all the wonderful elements of the books.

Recently they have also started to re-release Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom series in beautiful new editions, with a new book heading our way too. These books mean so much to me. I named my one of my kittens Mogget because I love it so much. I cant wait to have all of these gorgeous books on my shelves and to start my re-read.

A book you own but hate the cover of?

This has to be the ugliest book cover on my shelves. Its just mustard. It doesn’t have any design or even any indication that this is a festive story. Its just Mustard. it is the facsimile edition of the Crime club choice original print they usually have such fun and interesting covers with a half jacket, but this one is just boring and did I mention it was mustard coloured.

A book you haven’t read in years?

I have to go back to the Inkheart trilogy. I havent read them since they first came out and I really need to go back to them. I also want to go back to The Hunger Games. I last read them around the time the movies were released and I haven’t gone back to them. I also want to go re-read the Testing by Joelle Charbonneau, which again I havent read since I read the hunger games. The list could go on and on. I am overdue for my re-read of Old mans war series by John Scalzi. I think I might have a

Where do you read?

all over the house. I have a big reading chair in the living room bay window. I read on the couch while my husband games. There is a couch in my library which I also snuggle up on. I have a window seat in bedroom which is lovely to sit at on a sunny sunday morning. I read in bed, I read while travelling, I listen to audiobooks while walking or working or doing housework. The only place I don’t read is in the bath as I prefer showers.

What are the last two books you gave a 5 star rating?

The last two books I gave 5 stars were The Ship of Shadows by Maria Kuznair which I have a full review for HERE. This was a fun packed pirate adventure that just had the pages turning.

I also recently finished an advanced copy of the third graphic novel in the Tea Dragon series, The Tea Dragon Tapestry by Katie O’Neill. This was such a beautiful little graphic novel. the Whole series has been five stars for me. The art work and story are stunning. I will have a review out for it shortly.


So those are my answers. I never know who has done these tags or not in these so. I have picked Kerri form Kerri McBookNerd and Candyce from The Book Dutchesses
