I already wrote about my personal life last time so I thought this time I would write about me as a reader…

I’m totally a library reader! When I was younger, still living at home, I lined my walk-in closet with homemade bookshelves floor to ceiling. I perpetually bought books because back then I re-read books often… Now there is SOOOO much to read that I normally find books at the library. And I don’t always get hardbacks, a lot of times they are e-books…

I’m an e-book hoarder… Not sure this is something to be excited about but I LOVE e-books! Paper books are great but nowadays I typically read 2 or 3 books at once so having an e-library is the best way to go… with my handy reading app I am prepared to pick up where I left off whenever I have a free moment…

My series graveyard is massive! Okay, okay, I know its a problem and I’m trying to deal with it… I want to do a new feature about series to try to help this disability of mine. *stands up at the podium* My name is Dani and I have a perpetual problem finishing series. There I said it! I LOVE reading first books and I intend to read the second book but I rarely get to it…

I’m not a fan of time travel in books! Jaw dropping, I get it… time travel is a favorite for a lot of readers. It’s also a major LOVE for k-drama fans. I don’t hate the sub-genre but I never feel satisfied by them. I read them many times though… I guess I’m drawn to time travel story lines to try to find one that really resonates with me…

Romance is necessary 9 out of 10 books… Okay odd, but I really enjoy at least a dash of romance in the stories I read. It doesn’t have to be center stage (in fact I prefer when there is other story at work in addition to romance) but I want it somewhere. When I’m not in the mood for love I pick up a middle grade and they hit the romance free spot!

I will read ANY multiple POV (YA) books even though they disappoint me most times. Okay that was a long one… I LOVE multiple POVs, it makes the world feel more real to experience it from at least two perspectives. I love the contrast. It’s very unrealistic that one character is the center of everything so by sharing, if done well, already has engaged me…

I really dislike depressing books… I have trials and problems in my life that I struggle with. I can’t handle when a book is SOOOOOOOOOOOO depressing that by the end of the book it is starting to bleed into my own emotions. If I feel like metaphysically taking my life then the book is too dreary. I NEED hope, otherwise I’ll wither and die…

  1. I *love* your facts!! I’ve always been a massive library reader 😀 And I’ve recently become crazy about how many books I have on my kindle (too many books!!) I have to finish series though- it’s why I’m often scared to start new ones!! Yeahhh I’m not really into time travel too- it just messes up the plot too much and creates too many holes- occasionally it’s alright, but I tend to not pick those books up. I agree that most books need a dash of romance!! And I rarely pick up depressing books, though I do force myself on occasion 😉

  2. Oh, pretty much ALL the books I read are from the library — I’m so broke. 😂😭 And I do love romance, but more of a subplot. I don’t like romance novels where romance is the ACTUAL plot. However, I do think that friendships are equally of value as well! Congrats on getting the award! 😊

    1. Thanks May! Yup I’m all for romance subplot though I can recall a small handful of romance centered books that I loved. As a writer though I wouldn’t make that my choice (love is only a part of life after all!)

      Yes, aren’t we all broke! 😭😭😭😭😭

  3. Congratulations! I can’t believe the series thing. I almost feel obligated to finish a series when I started but as I’m saying this there are 2 I can think of that I never finished and multiples I haven’t caught up with yet, haha. I also need a dash of romance! I’m glad that you proudly admit that. Thank you for the nomination! I think I’m going to do with you did and describe myself as a reader too or maybe in terms of what I watch.

    1. YAY! I love that idea and look forward to reading about you as a reader ♥️❤️ romance for the win!

      Actually I kind of feel obligated to finish too so that’s probably why I procrastinate it because I don’t give myself permission to abandon it if I don’t like it or am not feeling it…

  4. I’m a library and ebook reader too! I know that it’s always fun to get new books and to build a library of our own but sometimes I know I’m not going to reread a book. I really think we need to give ebooks more love to, I mean it’s not like the story changes just because it’s not in physical print form.

  5. Oh thank you so much for the nomination, Dani, that’s so sweet of you! ❤ ❤ How do you manage to read two or three books at a time?! I admire you so much ahah, I always focus on only one book at a time. And yay for romance – I love it as well, even when it's on the side of the story 🙂

    1. You are so welcome and it’s so deserved by you!

      I don’t really like reading past 25% in one day. My storycraft eyes and writing sense become compromised. To do a book justice I try not to compress the story that much. So the solution is to read more than one book at a time if I can read that much in one day 😁 so many books and so little time!
