Book Lovers' Tag

1) Do you have a specific place for reading?

I usually read in the bath, it's very relaxing and I get the most peace. With a little one running around it's hard to get a moment alone. My ideal place would be by a wood burning fireplace, the crackling and the smell is so peaceful and inviting.

2) Bookmarks or a Random Piece of Paper?

I have a lot of bookmarks, I love them. The more the merrier! Yet, somehow I always end up using an old receipt or an old note lol

3) Can you just stop anywhere or do you need to finish a chapter?

I can stop whenever but I usually like to stop at a chapter or a break in the book.

4) Do you eat or drink while reading?

 Yes, I drink while reading, it's easy for me to do. I've never spilled anything on a book either! Eating though... it depends on the food I want, something messy will have to wait. I don't want to ruin my book.

5) Music or TV while reading?

I can't watch TV and read, unless I read on commercials. I love reading while listening to music though, it's cool to try and find songs that match the scene I'm reading. I also love to find each book a theme song if I can.

6) One book at a time or several?

As many as I feel like I guess, sometimes that's one and sometimes that is a bunch.

7) Do you prefer to read at home or elsewhere?

Home, simple as that.

8) Read out loud or silently?

To myself, my partner doesn't want to hear at all.

9) Do you read ahead or skip the pages?

Nope, I don't want to spoil anything for myself, otherwise I may not want to finish the novel.

10) Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

Like new, if I bend a spine by accident, I will sell it to Half Price Books and go out and buy another one. I have terrible OCD that way lol

11) Do you write in your books?

NEVER!!!! Again, I like to keep all my books looking as new as possible.

If you want to do this tag, just consider yourself tagged by me :D

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Short Update + The Stand-In Book Review

I've been lurking around your blogs for a few hours today and trying to catch up but I doubt I will. I've just missed so much! Sorry!  Today, I'm feeling a little bit better so I thought I would update you guys, since I've not blogged any in two weeks. The posts you've seen since then are just ones that I had scheduled for a while. I'm on the hunt for an anxiety medicine and had a really bad reaction to one my doctor put me on. I'm currently on steroids for a week to help that reaction.  Also, my grandma passed away recently and I've been trying to deal with that and help my family. They are really having it rough right now and it's been killing me trying to help them.  Then there's stuff with my kiddo. So yeah, I've been gone for a bit and dealing with things. I'm really hoping to get straightened out and get back to normal because this has been a sucky time.  Onto something bookish! I did manage to finish a book before everything kinda

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end in the face of pressure and threats from the CEO and her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions,
