I was looking for a tag to do so my readers could get to know me and I stumbled across this fun tag at Spines and Covers blog. If you want to do this tag, you are officially tagged!
How old are you?
I turned 27 recently and still not sure how I feel about it.
What book are you reading?
Heartless by Marissa Meyer (aka: The Queen of Retellings)
and Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter
What are you wearing?
My pjs. High school gym shirt and husband’s pajama bottoms. Super comfy is how I like to keep it.
(One True Pairing, for those who don’t know.)
Am I supposed to just pick one? Like how?
Tessa and Jem (the Infernal Devices), Rose and Dimitri ( Vampire Academy), Elena and Damon (the Vampire Diaries, and no I am still not over some recent events), Hook and Swan (Once Upon a Time). ❤
Blogger or WordPress?
I’m new to blogging guys! But WordPress because that’s what I’m using.
Going outside being active or staying in and reading a book?
How about being outside reading a book? Or being active outside while listening to an audiobook? I’ll take either of those options.
What is the last book you read?
Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins
What is the book you’re going to read next?
I’m hoping to finally get to A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas, but that could change.
Ebooks – yes or no?
I borrow Ebooks from the library all the time. If I’m not sure I’m going to love a book I’d rather borrow it through my Overdrive app, and if I do love it I buy a physical copy for my shelves.
Where do you prefer to read?
In my backyard! But the hot Florida sun makes it unbearable to be outside most of the time so my couch is my second favorite spot.
Who is the last person you tweeted?
I don’t tweet. I do Instagram though! Follow me @manduhpaigereads. (shameless self promotion)
Whose blog did you look at last?
Spines & Covers. It’s where I got this awesome tag from!
Who is your favorite blogger?
I’m completely new to blogs in general so please leave some suggestions in the comments for me to follow! Thank you in advance.
Who is your favorite book-tuber?
Way too many to name but some would be jessethereader, bookables, booksandlala, betweenchapters, polandbananasbooks, abookutopia, and thoughtsontomes. They all rock!
What do you do when someone tells you reading is boring?
I just brush the haters off, man. Don’t let the non-readers get you down!
Who is the last author you spoke to?
I’ve never had a conversation with an author except through comments on Instagram here and there. Specific shout out to Kendare Blake for commenting on one of my photos of her newest novel, Three Dark Crowns.
Who is the last person you texted?
The hubby, aka my forever bae.
Who is your all-time favorite book character?
Well let’s just ask another impossible question! All time favorite? Ugh. Can I say everyone in Harry Potter (minus the bad guys, especially Dolores Umbridge). And the whole crew in the Lunar Chronicles! They’re the real squad goals.
UKYA or USYA?
USYA because I do live in the US, but I will say some UK covers are absolutely stunning, so there’s that.
What is your preferred drink whilst reading?
Coffee, hot tea, alcohol to numb all the feels.
If you hated reading, what would you be doing instead?
LOL that’s a fake scenario. That scenario doesn’t even exist in the game of What If. But to be a good sport I would say photography. I love shooting people (with my camera, I feel like I have to clarify that) but lately I spend most of my non-reading free time taking photos of books.
How many bookshelves / bookcases do you have?
5 of all different sizes. It’s nowhere near enough.
If you had the choice to meet all of your favorite book bloggers or all of your favorite authors, which would you pick? You can only pick one.
All of my favorite authors of course! I would even be happy with just meeting J. K. Rowling or Sarah J. Maas.
Insta-love: yes or no?
No. Never insta-love. I can’t even think of an example where insta-love was done well and didn’t cause me to roll my eyes so hard into the back of my head I ended up with a headache.
Too many to name. But I’ll just say J.K. Rowling, Sarah J. Maas, and Marissa Meyer. That’s barely the tip of the iceberg though my friends.
What is the number-one book on your wishlist?
At the moment it would have to be the illustrated edition of A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. Have you seen it? Forever swooning. And need it, like yesterday.
Do you prefer books with female or male protagonists?
I do prefer female protags because I am a female and it’s easier to relate to for me. BUT some of my favorite books have male protags so I really am not picky either way.
What is the last song you listened to?
Bartender by T Pain. Because sometimes I want to only listen to songs from my high school years and Spotify makes that easy.
Which do you enjoy reading more – negative reviews or positive reviews?
Negative! I am really good at picking out books I’m going to love so I almost never post negative reviews, but boy oh boy, I do love reading negative reviews. I even love reading negative reviews on my favorite books.
Who are you going to tag?
If you are wearing pajamas, consider yourself tagged!
