Blogmas Day 20: Bookish Q&A Tag

I was searching online for a good Q&A that I could answer and tag others in. So, I stumbled across Deborah Kelty’s The “Book Habit and Currently Reading” Questionnaire from 2018. You can find the original post here.

I thought it would be fun to answer these questions. I’d love to have you all answer too.

Q1: What books do you remember reading that kick-started your bookworm habit?

I started reading when I was a child. The first books that I began reading were Judy Blume’s. I learned so much from her. I also enjoyed reading The Babysitter’s Club, Goosebumps, Poetry, and Literature. I enjoyed plays, comedy skits, and I read a lot about history.

Q2: What genre, or genres, would you normally choose? 

My go-to genre is romance. I love it and it’s always been my favorite. That is usually what I pick up. I love mystery, crime fiction, and fantasy too. I love books that intertwine more than one genre at a time.

Q3: Do you eat while you read and if yes, what exactly?

I used to snack on chips and sweets. Now, that I’m eating healthy, I enjoy some beef jerky or cheese.

Q4: Are there any scenes from your favorite novels that you remember vividly?

In, River’s End by Nora Roberts, I remember reading a scene where Olivia and Noah are by the water and she is retelling him about the horrible experience of watching her mother die when she was a child. His father had saved her and he told her that when he was a child, he remembered how it changed his father. How he stayed up at night and how he couldn’t stop thinking of that little girl. That scene was so well-written, it is stuck in my memory. It was the first Nora Roberts book I read and I still to this day cannot forget it.

Q5: Were there any least favorites?

I have read some books that I didn’t like, authors I don’t relate to, and some subject matter that I refuse to read. I won’t call anyone out because that isn’t my place, but there are some authors that I will not pick up.

Q6: So, as you’re a bookworm, what are you reading currently today? (Optional)

Right now, I’m on book two of the Miranda Chronicles. Miranda Ortega is a woman who was hired by a publisher to write a book about vampires. Turns out, she ended up living in a world with them, married one, and was thrust into their world. Book two starts after she gives birth to triplets and decides to raise them in her home state away from the vampire family she came to know. I’m looking forward to what happens next.

Q7: How’s it getting along for you? (Optional)

I just started for me. I haven’t gotten far enough to formulate an opinion, but I’ll get there. Look out for the review when it comes.

Q8: Have you then got a large bookshelf, or do you plan to?

I have several bookshelves in my house. They are all overflowing and I have nearly 5000 e-books through my kindle and google play libraries.

Q9: Do you have a liking to indie or traditional books?

Yes, many. I love to support other authors. Twitter is a good place to find authors that are indie to support. I love both types of books and have found many amazing reads.

Q10: And lastly, do you plan to promote reading in some way, or already are?

I do. I post reviews on goodreads, reedsy, and I post my book reviews here on blog. It’s fun to post and share what my thoughts are.
