The Book Blogger Test: Part ONE and TWO

(edited to add Part One, since my daughter informed me that I did it wrong.  Hopefully it is right now Emily :))

Hey Readers....This is my first tag and I have been tagged to do The Book Book Blogger test by Emily @ Reader Rising.  I have never done a tag before so I hope I am doing it right and don't ruin this idea that they have going ;).


1.  What are your top three book pet hates?

  1. I really do not like insta-love.  I know it's just a book but it is just so unrealistic.  I like it when the relationship builds.
  2. Too much description....that is a tricky one, but if there is too much description then I usually get bored and skip over it.  Sometimes put it down completely and don't pick it back up.
  3. Bad Covers - A cover is usually what makes me take notice of a book.  It makes me sad when the covers are lame.
2.  Describe your perfect reading spot:
In my dreams it would be sitting in the mountains on a lounge chair or in the woods on a porch....but in my house it is my lazy-boy.  It's so comfy :)

3.  Tell us three bookish confessions
  1. Sometimes I buy a book just because the cover is so fantastic :)
  2. I usually have a book and an audio book going at the same time.  Okay not at the SAME time, but one I can read, and one I can listen to while working
  3. I love reading teeny-bopper books :).  I don't know why probably because when I started reading again as an adult, I read what my child was reading.  Now I still love them :).
4.  When was the last time you cried during a book?
Well I am not going to tell you all of them because I am a big baby, and seem to cry more now then I ever did.  
  1. City of Heavenly Fire - I cried like a little girl
  2. The Book Thief - Seriously one of the best books ever :)
 City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments, #6)  19063

5.  How many books are on your bedside table?
I do not have any on my bedside table.  I carry my Kindle in my purse at all times, and whatever book I am reading in my purse as well.



1.  What is Your Biggest Reading Secret?

I don't know if this is really a secret, but here it goes.  I do not read a book if it doesn't capture me by the third chapter.  I put it down and never come back.

2.  Name Three Books You Would Recommend to          Everyone:
(this is a hard one to answer because I love so many books!!!)
Emily I promise I am not copying you, because this would have been my pick also :).

1.  The Book Thief  by Markus Zusak - hands down one of the best books I have ever read.

2.  Harry Potter  by J.K. Rowling (All of them) - I guess that is more than three...hehe - I guess I broke the rules, but this is my all time favorite series

3.  Blackmoore - by Julianne Donaldson

19063  Product Details        15795628

3.  What is Your Favorite Snack While Reading?

I try not to eat while I am reading just because I don't like to get things on my books, but if I do, it is popcorn.

4.  Show us a picture of your favorite shelf on your bookcase:
I actually love all of my shelves, so I will just show a few :)

5.  Write how much books mean to you in three words:
Reading is Happiness :)

I shall tag:

Tressa @ Wishful Endings

Melanie @ Mel's Shelves

Ali @ My Guilty Obsession


  1. My daughter just informed me that I did this wrong. I am super lame. Sorry Emily!!!!

    1. You're not lame :) your post is awesome! I'm so glad you participated!

  2. I would love to read in the mountains..yes please. I usually have an audio and book going at the same time too!

    1. Audio books help me get through my house work so I don't hate it as much ;)

  3. Dang, only 3 chapters? You're a toughie. ;)

    1. I didn't enjoy reading until I was an adult so if it doesn't grab me right away I don't bother...although I have found that I trudge through more now that I review.

  4. City of Fire was definitely a tear-jerker! All the tissues! :D Also, now I need to try munching on popcorn while reading... yum :) Loved your answers!!!

    1. I had to fix it because my daughter pointed it out. I'm a little slow ;)

  5. This is the second time I have been tagged, guess it means I really need to get with it and put this together!

    Thanks so much Becca for the fun questions and for tagging me!

    1. Sorry Ali- I didn't know you had already been tagged :)

  6. Yay! I'm glad you fixed it! I loved seeing your answers :) I will put up part two soon... Hopefully tonight.

    1. Well you better, since you are the one who pointed out that I did it wrong...hehehe!
