Age – Count along your bookshelf

(I don’t really have a traditional bookshelf so I’ve done the best with what I’ve got.)

The Final Empire (Mistborn book 1) by Brandon Sanderson, this is the 23rd book on the shelf with the most books on, and what a glorious coincidence, because this book is the first in one of my all time favourite fantasy series. I actually liked it so much that I also bought the hardcover special edition when they released it last year.

Mistborn 1

Book that represents a destination you would love to travel to

I haven’t had the opportunity to travel much at all, apart from a very brief school trip to France, I’ve never left the UK. My family has never been able to afford it. I would love to visit so many places all over the world, so for this answer I’m going to cheat just a tiny bit and say Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, because of the doorways all over the world. With magic like that I could visit so many of the places I’ve dreamed of easily.


Favourite colour

That’s a tricky question, and the answer is very dependant on my mood. But if I had to pick, I would go with midnight blue, the deep colour of the night sky. If I’m honest, I could literally stare at the night sky for hours, it make me feel so at peace and grounded, if a books cover features the night sky, it’s bound to grab my attention.

Most difficulty reading

Okay, confession time, I couldn’t get through Wuthering Heights, I had to read it for English Literature in sixth form, and it was really bringing me down. I felt such a relief when I decided to drop the subject, mostly because I wouldn’t have to read another page. I know it’s a classic, and a favourite of many, but I found non of the characters likable, and every page dragged. I don’t normally give up on books, but with this one, I have no regrets.

Which book on your TBR pile will you get the biggest sense of accomplishment from

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. This is such a popular fantasy novel, one I’ve heard so many wonderful things about. But it is also a massive tome, which makes it majorly intimidating. I’m fairly sure that I’ll love it, but due to its size it’s a commitment. When I finally finish it, I know that I will feel accomplished.


Okay, confession time, it has taken me months to get this posted. So I’m not going to tag anyone specifically, but if you want to do this tag, consider yourself officially tagged. Let me know in the comments if you decide to do it, I’d love to see you’re answers.
