The 20 Questions Book Tag: Look Who Has No Inspiration For A Post ft. Snarky Responses, Salt, Pretty Covers + Screaming.

I have decided to reveal my face…





oh no, wait, sorry. that’s just salt. one in the same, you know????????

“Why are you salty???” I hear you wail. Well:

  1. I’ve had 9/24 exams.
  2. I STILL have exams left.
  3. I’ve got a week off but I’m spending that revising for the next exams.
  4. I want to read books BUT I CAN NOT.
  5. I read a book and it was good but I don’t have as much time as I would like to scream about it.
  6. I have ARCs that I need to read but I wouldn’t be able to read them AND review them so i cant read them, but I feel guilty.
  7. My mum’s key lime pie fell on the floor a half hour ago. (future me: this was last night and I’m still not over it)
  8. I can’t have any more key lime pie
  9. that key lime pie was really good.
  10. I really want more key lime pie bc I’m sad.

whooooooooop my mental health just jumped out the window and I don’t even know whyyyyyy. 12/10 recommend my life rn.

11. I have no inspo for posts and hence why I stile this tag from May. You should read her post, it made me chuckle and guys. It’s MAY ok. Just read it yeah???

Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.411. how many books are too many books in a book series?

honestly? More than 3 and i now want to run away into the sunset with a backpack full of 0 responsibilities and ties to the human world. O, NATURE MY FRIEND. I can’t commit. I find that there are filler books, and those are just BORING. I used to love them, but now I just cannot commit. #AloneForever #ChillWithThat.

2. how do you feel about cliffhangers?


give me the answer.

or go away.

3. hardback or paperback?

A book.


Hardbacks look pretty, but I’m not a millionaire, to my chagrin.

4. favourite book?

{D0ACDC2C-044F-48E2-A0F8-A792BE3E7000}Img400At the moment it’s GOT to be Autoboyography which May recommended to me. Oh look, reason 2749523 to follow May. This book made me feel. So much feeling. And, I’ll let you in on a secret: I don’t feel that much. I rarely cry at books, let alone laugh and cry and feel all squishy and mushy in my hawt. This book did that. It did so much of that. Do you need this book? Undoubtedly. My review is here #ShamelessSelf-Promo.

5. least favourite book?

9781471161537 There are a few tbh. But this is a book that I cannot let slide. This book. Made me so angry. The main character. Where was the personality? I couldn’t find it, even with a map. And I loathe that I have to be saying this, but can we stop with this I’m-a-feminist-but-oh-wait-a-boy-is-here-now-my-life-is-fine-boys-are-all-that-matter-bullshit? Please? It drives me up the wall. She was so naive, and dfjgbsleign. anger. I’ve actually never hated a book to this degree before. I couldn’t even write the review.

Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.416. love triangles, yes or no?

As May said in her post, they’re too blegh. I always find that they either lead to a whiny main character (often female being all boys-are-all-that-matter-waaaa-my-life-is-hard) or girl hate competing over a guy like that’s all that matters. I find them tiring to read, I really do.

I’ve personally always found that they’re always todo with girl-boy relationships, so idek if maybe it was lgbtq it would be more interesting for me? But let’s be honest, it’s still a love triangle. I’ll still want to shove a fork in my eye.

Saying this, there are a few examples that I’ve liked/found amusing before, for example, the one in Simon Vs. wasn’t the main focus and was actually done okay in my opinion!! As well as that, the Love triangle in the Infernal Devices was really good and actually killed me with feelings.

Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.417. the most recent book you just couldn’t finish?

Ilsa don’t kill me, please.

20821111-2.jpgOne of THREE books that I’ve never been able to finish is The Young Elites and it pains me to say it because I wanted to read it for so long but where is this plot? Actually, no. There was a plot, and then it skipped off to Neverland. It was great… at first. Then it just went dramatically downhill off a cliff.

And extra salt at this entire situation because LOOK. PRETTY and I wanted to love this book so much because I’ve wanted to read it for years.

Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.418. a book you’re currently reading?

HA. Reading. What is that?

24909347I actually just finished a book and haven’t started a new one yet!!

Technically, I’m still “reading” Obsidio from agesssss ago. I kind of put it down for the exams though and it’s just been sitting there, demanding for my “attention”* ever since. It’s SO good though guys. If it weren’t for the exams, I would have read it a BILLION times already. AND THE BIT I’M AT IS SO SRGNS;OE!!

*i swear i can’t focus on anything for more than a few minutes at a time.

Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.419. last book you recommended to someone?

{D0ACDC2C-044F-48E2-A0F8-A792BE3E7000}Img400Autoboyography! I recommended it to Cas (who is amazing, go follow!!). It made me, Queen StoneHeart, feel something close to 215,330 emotions. Basically a miracle people. This is no hyperbole. I had about 523 emotions per page. (guys this mathematically works out. THIS IS CRAZY. 410(ish) pages in my edition x 523 = 214,430. I know. We all didn’t want that maths lesson.)

But yes. I recommended it to Cas. Go scream at her on twitter with me to make her read it!! Go forth, minions.

Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.4110. oldest book you’ve read? (publication date)

9780198324003Unwillingly, Macbeth. Technically, a play. BUT. IT COUNTS. Gosh. So painful, for me and the characters. They all got stabbed/beheaded, and I dreamed of the same fate for myself so that I wouldn’t have to finish the damn play.

And yay. I never have to read it again. *world cheers*

Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.41

11. newest book you’ve read? (publication date)

opal-a-raven-cycle-story.jpgerrrrrrrrr. I honestly have no clue. sh*t. sekghbseukgbuesbg. bare with* 4-Minutes-Later-Me: Opal by Maggie Stiefvater!

It was published on the 1st March 2018, which isn’t really that recent but WHO CARES. It was published this year, y’all should be proud of me for this. We all know how terrible I am at reading new releases.

*someone please get the Miranda reference.

  1. Maggie Stiefvater.
  2. Cassandra Clare.
  3. V. E. Schwab.
  4. Becky Albertalli.
  5. Christina Lauren.
  6. Alice Oseman.

13. buying books or borrowing books?

I’d love to buy all the books ever but I am not a millionaire* so. Tbh I end up reading less because I HAVE to buy the books I want to read because 1) my library is SO unreliable + far away 2) it doesn’t have 1/2 the books I want to read anyways 3) in my friend group, I am the one that reads, so no one else can lend me the books!


Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.41

14. a book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?

*Cracks knuckles*

  1. A Monster Calls.
  2. The Young Elites.
  3. Me Before You.
  4. The Hobbit.

~ let’s stop there before the world hates me ~

Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.4115. bookmarks or dog-ears?


How can you dare accuse me of SUCH a dreadful crime?

I can’t even look at you right now. Dog-earing ruins the book!! The pages get all creased!! And then it doesn’t close right!! NOOOOOO, THIS HAUNTS MY DREAMS. STOOPPPP PLEASEEE.

Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.41

16. a book you can always reread?

Right now it seems to be, you guessed it, AUTOBOYOGRAPHY!! I’ve reread it several times, and I had to stop logging it on my goodreads because I felt bad.. whoops!!

A trilogy that I’ll always be able to reread is All For The Game by Nora Sakavic. My heart was ground to nothing, much like Autoboyography.

Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.41

17. can you read while hearing music?

Yes!! Like May said in her post, I cannot read in silence!! I hate it. I can’t do anything in silence unless it’s studying, or exams or something like that! I have to have some kind of background noise!!

Music = relaxing

Reading = relaxing

Music & Reading = double relaxing = happy(ish) me.

Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.41

18. one POV or multiple POVs?

I like both!! I think that Dual PoVs in contemporary is my favourite because I feel like it just adds more you know???

But I don’t really mind tbh. JUST GIVE ME THE BOOKS. please?

Screenshot 2017-09-29 18.15.41

19. do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?

Normally, over a couple days, maybe a week if I’m busy!

BUT. With some amazing books that are 5/5 star automatically, no doubt whatsoever, they tend to be books that I’ve read really quickly! Sometimes I can read them over an afternoon if they really grip me!!

Though, I don’t really like doing that because I only buy maybe 3 books a month?? so??? you know??

20. who do you tag?

eignelignrlgne who shall I doom?

  1. the universe.
  2. the sun?
  3. someone?
  4. I’m very bad at tagging, as you can see.
  5. Lily @ Sprinkle of Dreams (whoops, sorry :// ahah).
  6. Elizabeth @ Reading Through the Night (mwahah this isn’t pay back for the other tag…. nooooo).
  7. Kathy @ Books and Munchies (yes, this is to get you back for tagging me 😉 )
  8. Michelle @ The Writing Hufflepuff (sorry to doom you this way…)
  9. Inside My Library Mind (you’ve only been wonderful to me, I apologise sincerely).

  5. I’m here like: Getting back at me?
    You think you can get back at me?!

    I ALREADY DID THIS ONE. HA. [Also, I seriously don’t want to know how many tags I have left to do.]

    Autoboyography is awesome. I love that book.
    Obsidio gave me the worst bookhangover I ever had. I hate and love that book at the same time – IT’S THE BEST.

  7. hello, fellow pile of salt. :”)

    i’m sending all the positive vibes and heart emojis your way, exams are TERRIBLE and suck the life out of every innocent soul but i believe in you!!! you can pull through!!! study hard and ace those tests!!! ❤ (i totally empathize with you because i recently just got out of exams and i'm… still kind of dead inside, tbh) (also the worst part of exams is probably not being able to read and having to hide your books so you won't get tempted)

    oooh cliffhangers stress me out so much but i seem to can't seem to get enough of them? and ohmygosh have you read The Cruel Prince yet because that cliffhanger absolutely murdered me.

    PS i cry for your fallen key lime pie. </3

  10. Great answers for these questions Lu, I feel like the fact that you’re recommending Autoboyography to so many people just show it’s an incredible book (and one I need to pick up ASAP)!
    It’s a shame about The Young Elites, but I suppose there are other books out there, at least you included V.E. Schwab as one of your favourite authors because that’s the main thing (I love her and her books so so much). Also I definitely agree with you on cliffhangers. I need the answer and I need it right that second. The wait for A Conjuring of Light after I finished A Gathering of Shadows was pure torture.
    Again great answers, and great post as well. 🙂 ❤

  11. Awww! I LOVED THIS!! Your answers were really interesting and I actually read the whole way through! I find it really hard to read books with more than 3 in a series (unless it’s amazing or its Harry Potter- that’s basically the same thing!).


    Exams really suck! It’s so sad you have to revise and NOT READ!?! I did my exams but I cry for you. I really want to read Obsidio! I read Illuminae but I couldn’t find the the next book in the library! So frustrating! AGHHH. 😖😫😣 Great post ❤️ xx

  12. Aww, I’m sorry things aren’t great for you mental health wise. I hope you feel better soon.

    And ooh, Obsidio! It was so good, and I hope you get to finish it soon! Although you’re probably smart not to read it all in one sitting like I did, because it left me with a MAJOR book hangover, and sort of unable to deal with the fact that the series was OVER. Sooo… Yeah maybe don’t do that.

    Good luck on your exams!

  14. i-i did not think that was salt at the beginning…
    hahahah when i saw may do this tag i was all like “she is running out of ideas isn’t she” and then i saw you doing it and it has confirmed my suspicion. i think school is killing us all and blogging inspo is just out of the window. Ahhh I’ve been meaning to read autoboyography ever since i saw it on netgalley and requested it (i was denied and i’m still salty about this) but especially because everyone is saying AMAZING things about it!!
