A Pocket Full of Books

When was the last time you fell asleep with a book in your hands?

I don't think this has ever actually happened! With print books, I'm too afraid I'd lose my page and with Kindle, I'm too afraid it'd fall and get smashed to pieces. I usually put my book away long before I sleep.

How far into a book can you tell if you are going to like it or not? 

Almost immediately. It's rare that persisting with a book pays off for me. I usually give a book maybe 50 pages to redeem itself or I move onto something else (unless it's a review book.) Life is too short for boring books!

How's the weather outside right now?

It's pretty dull and overcast but at least it's not raining!

What do you think of love triangles in Young Adult books?

I have mixed feelings actually! They do succeed in making me read the whole series but it's pretty awful when the protag doesn't end up with the person you're rooting for which happened to me with The Hunger Games.

Who's your least favorite reality TV personality?

I'm trying to answer this one but I'm coming up blank. I do watch reality TV now and again but I never get invested enough to know much about the people in it.

Ice cream or yogurt? 

Ice cream of course! Especially if it's chocolate and has marshmallows. Now I'm hungry...

How do you prefer your Main Male Character, dark haired and mysterious or blonde and sexy? 

Judging by my favourite male characters in books so far, I'm going to have to say dark haired and mysterious! But there are always exceptions.

Have you ever disliked a review on Amazon? 

Yes but usually only when they're being unfair, (''This book is YA and I HATE YA!!'') because that is not helpful which I think is what the voting up or down refers to! I don't like how any review that gives 3 stars or less gets voted down just because.

How often do you visit Goodreads?

I'm afraid to answer this truthfully, haha. I visit it a LOT. Goodreads is my ''home'' and I was there long before I had a blog. When I'm online I usually have it open the whole time! I love the community there.

Describe your blog in 3 words. 

Hmm. Informative, fun and pretty! 

Thanks to Nicola for answering my questions!! I love her blog you guys should definitely visit it! :)
