I Dare You Book Tag

Hey everyone!

Today, I am doing the I Dare You book tag. Thank you to the lovely Mani’s Book Corner for tagging me to do this!

1. What book has been on your shelves the longest?

Oh wow, that’s a hard one, because so many of my books have been on my shelves for what feels like forever…

2. What is your current read, your last read, and the book you will read next?

Current Read:
The Ship of Shadows
by Maria Kuzniar

Current Read:
Ten Days in a Mad-House
by Nellie Bly

Last Read:
Children of Blood and Bone
by Tomi Adeyemi

Reading Next:
Cannibal City
by Jennifer Lee Thomson

3. What book did everyone like, but you hated?

Alice in Wonderland. I hated every second of it… Sorry Alice fans.

4. What book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read, but you probably won’t?

I actually don’t know… I really do plan on reading everything on my shelves!

5. Which book are you saving for retirement?

That is a very long way off, and something I don’t even think about yet, haha!

6. Last page: Do you read it first or wait to the end?

Always wait to the end! I can’t be spoiling a story for myself like that!

7. Acknowledgements: Are they a waste of paper and ink or interesting?

I think they’re lovely! and it is always interesting to read how many people helped an author on their journey.

8. Which book character would you switch places with?

Another tough one, especially for someone who’s main go to genres are Thriller and Horror… I’ll go with Elizabeth Bennett.

9. Do you have a book that reminds you of something specific in your life?

The Vampirates series. It reminds me of my childhood, and the first time I ever read it was with my whole class in Year 5.

10. Name a book that you acquired in an interesting way.

Childhood Interrupted by Kathleen O’Malley

I went on a night out with Alex and a bunch of people from his work. We went to a few pubs and a couple of clubs, and somehow along the way, I gained a new book…

11. Have you ever given away a book for a special reason to a special person?

Nope. If I give someone a book, I tend to buy them their own copy so that I can keep mine!

12. Which book has been with you the most places?

I have no idea! Whichever book took me the longest to read, because I can guarantee that I had it in my bag with me wherever I went, even if I wasn’t reading it.

13. Any ‘required reading’ you hated in high school that wasn’t so bad two years later?

Of Mice and Men. My problem with required reading at school, was that most of the time, we had to read it as a class, and the teacher would get members of the class to read a chapter each, and I hated it. I would rather sit and read it myself than have someone else read it to me, because I take it in better that way.

14. Used or brand new?

Of course I prefer brand new books, but I have no problem with used books, and I shop in the local Oxfam book shop regularly.

15. Have you ever read a Dan Brown book?

Not yet, but I definitely plan to.

16. Have you ever seen a movie that you liked more than the book?

The Tim Burton adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. As I said earlier in an earlier answer, I hated the book, but I love the Tim Burton adaptation!

17. A book that’s made you hungry?

I have absolutely no idea! haha

18. Who is the person whose book advice you’ll always take?

My dad’s. His taste in books is exactly the same as mine, so when he recommends a book, I always read it.

19. Most read authors?

James Herbert, and Steve Cavanagh

20. Ship from two different books? 

This is a really hard one, that would take a lot of thinking about. So, I don’t know.

I’m not tagging anyone in particular this week, but if you want to do the tag, I would love to read your answers!
