Happy Friday lovelies!!! I hope you all have had a wonderful week, and you all have a super awesome weekend!!
Today I am doing this tag that I came across at The Orangutan Librarian. I thought it was a lovely little tag to do for a Friday, a nice way to end the week 🙂
Choose one word to describe yourself as a reader
What is the first book that made you fall in love with reading?
My Grade 2 teacher used to read Paul Jennings books to my class and I absolutely loved it. I also loved the double covers, where there was a picture on the front and on the second cover showed a different version of the cover…I used to think it was super awesome!!!
Hardback or Paperback
I will buy the hardback if the book is a favourite, but generally they are way too expensive. I will therefore usually opt for paperback in the first instance.
How has reading shaped your identity?
I have always been a dreamer and had my head in the clouds. I guess reading just gave me a way to be a bit more “present” without really being present haha.
What book do you read when you want to be comforted?
I think this book comforts me because in this book Aelin goes through so much. She hits rock bottom and then has to fight her way back into the light, and I think reading her struggle helps me and makes me think that I can be a fighter too.
Who influenced you or taught you to be a reader?
There are a few people I can thank. My mum and dad read books and encouraged my reading. My year 2 teacher who read Paul Jennings. But probably most of all my sister, she would read books and tell me how great they were, and I would usually read them after her. We like very different genres, however I think her love of books infected me 🙂
Describe your dream reading lounge?
A book nook! A marshmellow couch next to a large window to let the light in, and the walls filled top to bottom with books. Also, a few cats and a dogs surrounding me would be great as well.
What book changed how you saw the world?
Because I always lived in my little dream land and read fairytales, this book was a massive eye opener. The amount of abuse this little boy suffered, and the fact that it was based on a true story really knocked me.
Tag…if you want to do it then go ahead. I honestly don’t think I tag people properly so it never works out right. If you do end up doing this tag let me know so I can see your answers 🙂
Now tell me, why do you read? How has it shaped who you are?? Let me know in the comments below!
