The Book Lover Survey

Do you remember how you developed a love for reading? 
I was encouraged to read from a young age.  My dad used to make up stories for me when I was really young or read to me from a book, then I would be allowed 'five minutes' to read from my own book.  When I got a bit older I had trouble sleeping so he would read more complicated books to me such as Terry Pratchett ones and The Hobbit which helped me get to sleep!

Where do you usually read? 
In bed, usually at night or sometimes in the morning if I'm off work.  Also on the train if I'm going to be alone but I don't often get the train these days!

Do you prefer to read one book at a time or several at once? 
One!  I've tried reading a couple but it just gets really confusing.

What is your favourite genre? 
It's so hard to choose!  I enjoy teen books like The Hunger Games and the sort of dystopian ones which are appearing everywhere now but then I love Jodi Picoult's books which are courtroom dramas, I guess??

Is there a genre you will not read? 
Not so much won't but I don't tend to read any traditional crime or horror books.

Do you have a favourite book? 
Probably The Time Traveler's Wife but obviously I love the Harry Potter series too...

What is your least favourite book?
I read The Lovely Bones for an English project at school and absolutely hated it, I'm not even sure why.  I think it just seemed so creepy and all the characters were really annoying!

What is the longest book you have ever read? 

I recently read The Host which was really long!  I can't be sure if this is longest as it was on my Kindle but it definitely felt like it!

What was the last book you bought? 
The last book I bought was The Rosie Project as the eBook was on Amazon for 99p.  The last 'real' books I bought were a selection of chick lits from Asda which were £1 each, including the first in the 'I Heart..." series.

Do you prefer library books or buying books? 

I prefer to buy them but I do go to the library occasionally.  For example, I wanted to read the Pretty Little Liars books but they about £5 each and there's about 12 of them now, so instead I get them from my local library who can buy them in for me!

What are you currently reading?

I'm currently reading I Heart New York which I'm enjoying but it's making me want to go there so badly!


If you've done this tag/survey, please leave a link in the comments so I can read yours :)



  1. I really enjoyed this post, I Heart New York made me want to travel there too but I haven't yet! xx

    1. Thanks! I love that it's got a wee travel guide at the back as well!

  2. I can only read one at a time too, it's just wrong to have more than one on the go. I normally read books before films however for The Lovely Bones I ended up seeing the film before and enjoyed that to be fair but the book....oh how I hated the book!

    1. Yes the film is fine but the book is just awful haha usually the other way around!

  3. I loved your book survey and had to do one of my own. I would love it if you check it out.


Thank you so much for your comments, they are much appreciated! :)
