Hello, Bookish Friends! I thought this post would be a fun way to get to know me as a reader. My goal for this blog is to connect and grow with the book blogger community! Hopefully find friends along way ❤
I am cooking up some hot content for this blog that includes book reviews, discussion posts, good ole book rambling, and all of that good stuff soon! Follow so you don’t miss out!
Bookish this or that consists of questions that are common within the book community. I’ve gathered a few of them for this post.
To read in silence or With music/or ambience?
If I could read in complete silence I would! I live in a noisy home and silence is only available late at night or early in the morning. If I end up reading during the day I put on library or coffee shop ambience to compensate for the chatter that is happening and it allows me to tune out any noise that is happening around me. There are so many atmospheric ambience videos on YouTube and most of them pair up great with what I am currently reading. Makes for the ultimate reading experience.
To re-read books or Read new books?
I like reading new books or not exactly “new” but books I haven’t read yet. I don’t re-read books mostly I skim to my favorite parts or chapter. I have re-read a few but I prefer to read new books! There’s so many books out there and so little time.
Paperback or Hardback?
Paperback, baby!!! I love a good floppy thick paperback! Hardcovers are beautiful and have their benefits don’t get me wrong. Whenever I am reading a hardcover I feel like I have to be extra careful especially If I put down like 15+ dollars for them. When reading I prefer to read paperbacks I find them more flexible to read from.
Character driven or Plot driven stories?
I believe characters truly make the story enjoyable whether the character is unlikable or not. A well written or developed character will make or break the story for me. Reading is escapism for me although I do not mind a pinch of realism in books. I like being able to connect with the characters, feel their pain and their happiness.
Moodboards or playlist for books?
Listening to a playlist created for a particular book after reading it feels like your levitating. I love immersing myself into a story and I would do anything to part of my favorite fictional worlds.
Book Twitter or Bookstagram?
This answer is 100% bias because I am on book twitter instead of bookstagram. I might be missing out on the aesthetic book photos but the catch is you can post those photos on twitter too. I really love book twitter apparently there is a lot of discourse for some people but opinions clash in every platform and people have the right to be heard. Minus the discourse it is a great place to follow your favorite authors and interact with other readers. I’ve connected with s few blogger and booktube creators on book twitter. Everyone is so nice and supportive! I love reading currently reading book threads, book recommendation threads and how inclusive everyone is. My book twitter account has become a safe place for me to mindlessly gush about books, and other content I enjoy.
Thank you so much for reading! I had fun doing this post! Do you agree with my answers? Comments are welcome 🙂
