50 Bookish Facts About Me (Part 1)

Hey guys! So this type of post has been around for a while, but of course I’m late to the party. I’m going to split up this post into two parts because…why not! I always find these ‘5o bookish facts’ posts rather interesting and you find out a lot about the blogger behind the blog. Let’s just get into these 25 facts.


1) I love the fantasy genre because I get to experience different worlds.

2) Reading in the sunlight is SO GOOD but I have bees…wasps…and small insects…

3) If I see a book with sprayed edges I am 75% more likely to buy that book.

4) I hate how expensive hardcover books are.

5) Seriously, if hardcover books were the same price as paperbacks, all my books would be hardbacks.

6) I have to try really hard to hold my tongue if someone looks gobsmacked at me reading a book between my lessons.

7) I sometimes daydream about what role I would have in the book I am currently reading.

8) I like crime/thriller books but I always drop out before the exciting parts happen.

9)I believe bright spines ARE THE BEST SPINES!

10) Reading in my bed is the best and the worst. I mean it’s super comfortable, but then after half an hour I’m half asleep.

11) Big books intimidate me SO MUCH. Along with small fonts.

12) I hate that comics, mangas and graphic novels are so expensive because they are so good and (most of the time) fun reads.

13) Bookmarks are nonexistent to me.

14) I really want to start to read more non-ficiton books but it seems like I have no time to read them.

15) My TBR is never ending…never.

16) I want to own all of the hardcover editions of Harry Potter. They are all so beautiful!

17 I have one Funko character…it’s Ron Weasley! #Weasleyisourking

18) Though I am not a feminist I have read around five pro-feminism books.

19) If you didn’t already know, fantasy is my favourite genre.

20) A close second is Historical Fiction.

21) I hate reading off my phone. My eyes, MY BEAUTIFUL EYES!

    Great facts! I feel the same about hardcover books, it’s one of my major reading peeves, the fact that they’re so expensive and also the fact that they always come out a year before the paperback edition. Sometimes you’re stuck spending so much money on a hardcover book because you want to read the story so badly.
    I’m the same with sprayed spines as well, I will always buy a book that catches my eye like that because I am very influenced by how pretty a book is! 😀

    I agree with you there about manga. I mostly read them in high school, but I never could justify buying them because I read through them so fast and they were so expensive. I spent so much time at the library… Free reads!!!

    Neat facts! Totally agree with No. 4. Hardbacks are so expensive compared to paperbacks, but it’s a series I’m already invested in, I just can’t seem to wait another year for it to come out in paperback 🙂
