25 bookish facts about me



I wasn’t tagged to do this but I recently read marie@drizzleandhurricanebooks 25 bookish facts and was inspired, and if you haven’t done so already take a look at Marie’s blog.


  1.  I constantly watch BookTube and then feel guilty for not reading my own books.
  2. I will buy books without knowing much about them or by there covers alone
  3. I buy the majority of my books second hand from the Charity shops.
  4. I have been reading les Miserables for 5 months and only 550 pages  done
  5. I can’t listen to audio books, they make me go to sleep or my mind drifts and then I don’t know what’s going on.
  6. I have never been to a book event. I didn’t really knew they existed till last year (I was currently living under a rock and very naive)
  7. I hardly have any bookish swag or items, I have 2 bookmarks and if I can’t find them or they are in use, I will use a photo or a piece of mail.  I really would like a pop funko.
  8. I tend to read mostly in bed (but end up falling asleep after 10 pages)
  9. I have a ridiculous amount of books currently on loan from the library and some of them I have just kept renewing over and over again.
