I’m so late doing this tag. I got tagged by the lovely Samantha and Amber at Bibliomavens to do this about 2 weeks ago but life has got hectic and I haven’t had too much time.
I knew I wanted to dedicate my evening to writing and posting this tag so here we go!

3 things about me
- I am terrified of birds, particularly pigeons and seagulls
- I 100% match my star sign personality and everything I read about it online (I’m a Wirgo Sun, Aquarius Moon and Cancer Rising)
- I practise yoga every day! It helps me to keep calm and feel centred
What is a book you hated when you first read it and loved it when you read it again?
I can’t think of many books that I’ve really hated. I remember disliking Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare when I first read it at school. I hated it because I thought there were too many characters and the storyline was very confusing. Since then, I have re-read the play and I can now appreciate it.
Would you survive a dystopian novel? And why/why not?
I actually think I would! I like to plan and prepare and have all bases covered, so I think I would be prepared for anything to happen and for all eventualities. I feel like I’m quite resourceful and am excellent at watching and listening to what’s going on around me (very good at reading people!)
Would you rather spoil the ending of every book before you read it or crack the spine of all your books?
Even though I’m getting uncomfortable at just the thought of having to crack the spines of all my books, I would have to say that that’s slightly less annoying that spoiling the ending of every book before I read it. I feel like, despite how it would look, I could get over having cracked book spines. Also, I suppose I could think of it in a positive way and that it shows that all my books are well-loved and enjoyed!
What book to you regret giving hours of your life to?
As with the question before about which book I hated, I don’t think there’s many books that I regret spending time on! I’ve spoken about this before but I don’t tend to DNF books, purely because I feel like I’m quite good at choosing books that I know I will like and I don’t tend to pick up books that I know I won’t enjoy. I will say that, during reading it, I regretted picking up The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. I’ve spoken about this quite a few times so if you read my blog posts a lot you’re probably sick of me mentioning it haha. I just couldn’t really understand the hype of the book and found myself, at times, wishing it were nearly over. On retrospect and after doing some research on the novel and its context, I can understand why people love it.
If you could turn one book into a console/PC video game, what would it be?
I’ve recently been re-reading The Chronicles of Narnia book series as they were some of my childhood favourites. Being transported back to that magical world of Narnia makes me think it would be a great option for a video game. It would be so immersive and so magical. I couldn’t choose one of the books; any would be great! If they created a well-developed video game where you could just roam the world of Narnia, saving the kingdom and meeting all the characters that would be fantastic. I’d be first in the queue for that!
- Which book to movie/TV show adaptation were you most impressed by?
