The Book Blogger Test

I've not been tagged to do this but I want to get back into doing tags and besides, they are fun! That's what blogging is all about to me, having fun and sharing my love of books with all you wonderful readers. I love you all by the way. 

1) What are your top 3 book pet peeves?

A) Creased Spines.
If I crease a spine in a paperback, I will sell that book to Half Price Books and get a new one. Or if there is a book I want to read but only own the paperback, I will go to the library to keep from breaking that spine. 

B) Dog Eared Pages.
I really don't like anything that makes a book look like it's been read. If you were to check my shelves, you'd think I've never read any of the books. That's what I like. They are all in the best condition. 

C) Writing/Highlighting in Books.
Again. I just don't like when a book is defaced. Just my personal feelings. If you like doing this, go for it! They're your books, do as you please.

2) Describe your perfect reading spot.

One would have to be this perfect below. I have a crazy weird love for water. In another life I was a mermaid. I was the kid that cried when we had to leave the pool, I take a day long bath. I could still swim all day long. I just love the water and this would be so relaxing.

Or I really nicely lit, comfy bed. That would be super great as well. I'd never leave the bed.. unless it was to go into the hot tub lol.

3) Three Book Confessions

A) I haven't read The Fault in Our Stars. I don't really want to read it, doesn't seem like my kind of book. 

B) I can count on my fingers the number of adult books I've read. 

C) I probably won't ever finish the HP books unless my partner makes me. I love the movies and the world and everything about this series but yeah.... I don't know. I think it goes back to my childhood brainwashing and being told HP was the devil.

4) When was the last time you cried reading a book?

Probably it was while reading A Court of Mist and Fury.
 The part where Tamlin locks her in the house. It really hit me and if I could have murdered a book character, it so would have been him. Freaking bastard. 

5) How many books are on your bedside table?

None. I don't have a bedside table. I'm one of those weird people that have to sleep by the wall or I just feel like I will fall out of the bed ha ha. Though I have three on my partner's bedside table. Those three books are:

6) What is your favorite snack to eat while reading?

Is it weird that I don't eat while reading? I drink coffee or hot chocolate but I don't really eat when reading. 

7) Name three books you would recommend for others to read.

A) Throne of Glass

B) Obsidian

C) A Court of Thorns and Roses

8) Write how much books mean to you in three words.

saved my life.

9) What is your biggest reading secret? 

I am a speed reader...? No no I know! I can't read more than one book at a time or I get confused. Yeah, that's sad but it's not so bad where I am a speed reader. I can get through a good amount in a month still. 

As for who I'm tagging, EVERYONE! Yes, you and you. You too! I would love to see all your answers. So make your own post and leave the link below. Have a great day and happy reading my butterflies.

(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,
