25 Bookish Facts About Me

Since this is a blog that is primarily dedicated to my unhealthy book addiction, I thought I might share with you some bookish facts about me. So, let’s get started:

  1. I was obsessed with Geronimo Stilton and Nancy Drew when I was 11 years old.
  2. I love reading books with characters that are struggling with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) etc. I find those the most relatable.
  3. I also enjoy reading books with strong heroines. For me, Celaena Sardothien of the Throne of Glass series is the best in that category.
  5. I enjoy listening to music whilst reading. (I highly suggest listening to Sarah’s spotify playlists while reading her books.)
  6. I started attending book signing events just this 2016 and I wish I’d started attending earlier. Sigh.
  7. The first author I met is Victoria Aveyard. I cried when I first saw her and I videotaped her grand entrance with my trembling hands.
  8.  I know I’m reading something that’s really good when I read past bedtime with the help of my flashlight or mini lamp. I seem to get all the feels when I read at about 2-5 in the morning and I do not exactly know why.
  9. I panic inside bookstores when I see my favorite books. I literally do not give a flying crap or two about what people think of me when I do that. Lol.
  10. My favorite reading spot or place is anywhere I am alone but to be specific, I’d mention fields.
  11. I faked my obsession with Twilight when I was 13. At least I finished reading the whole series, right? Right.
  12. It usually takes 2-5 days for me to finish a really good book. But it depends on how busy I am.
  13. I have no sense of control when it comes to buying books. On the other hand, I hide the books I can’t buy when my savings is not yet enough.
  14. Sometimes, I watch book reviews on Youtube before I purchase a book. My favorite booktuber is Sasha Alsberg.
  15. I cried when I read The Fault in Our Stars. I cried when I watched the film. I ugly cried alot because of that novel! Please don’t judge me.
  16. I love poetry. I love Sylvia Plath. I love Charles Bukowski. I love Franz Kafka. SO MUCH
  17. I love buying hardbound books for display but I prefer reading books in paperback because they’re easier to hold, at least for me.
  18. I HIGHLIGHT MY BOOKS. Yellow for quotes. Green for places. Orange for names.
  19. I apply nail polish at the back of my books’ cover so I’d recognize them when they get stolen. *sniffs* My babies!
  20. I stare at the ceiling and cry sometimes and re-evaluate my entire existence after I finish reading a 5-star book. Sarah J. Maas always does that to me– you know, like, ruin my life. No big deal.
  21. I somehow stopped reading when I went to college due to my busy schedule. However, my World Literature professor assigned us to do a book report. So, I read Red Queen and I haven’t mustered the courage to stop reading again yet after that.
  23. I smell my new books at least 7 times a day.
  24. Before loving Sarah J. Maas with all my heart, soul and might, I first loved Nicholas Sparks, Sophie Kinsella and Paulo Coehlo. I still love them though.
  25. And last but not the least, I had my first bookshelf when I was 18! 🙂

That’s it. Thank you so much for reading. Stay tuned for more!
