The 'Day and Night' Book Tag
Are you a night person or a day person?
Hello everyone and welcome to another book tag!!! Today’s tag was originally created by Readigans. I have BookTuber katytastic's video in the media; go check her videos out. She's really great!
The ‘Day and Night’ tag is very similar to the previous two tags. I have 11 questions to answer and the first letters of each question spell out…you guessed it. Day and Night. So let’s begin, shall we?
D: Do you read more in the morning or at night?
Well, what d’you know?
I know I don’t read in the mornings for sure…Umm…I read more as the clock chimes 4 o’ clock. I read a lot after that time, and most often, I read well into the night. So yeah, I read more at night.
Funny how I can keep reading till 1 o’ clock in the night but when I have to study late, I miraculously fall asleep by 9.
A: Are there any books that changed the way you thought about things?
I don’t usually read books that are said to make you think, which makes me realise that I probably should. *guilty face*
But A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett changed the way I thought about quite a few things. It mostly has to do with storytelling, keeping others happy, being strong and patient, and feeling sympathy… it’s a brilliant classic. I can’t explain because it’s very abstract, what the book made me think.
Another book that managed to change the way I thought about YA books being all about romance was The Fault in our Stars by John Green. Funny how a book I didn’t really like had an impact, however small, on me. It wasn’t just a cancer love story, as I’d thought before reading the book.
Y: YA or not?
Just when I mentioned YA in the previous answer.
I never read YA till a few months ago, because like I mentioned earlier, I thought it was all romance. How mistaken I was. Even though TFioS did have a lot of romance, something was different in the way I perceived YA after I finished the book. I guess I wanted to explore the genre more. So my YA reading journey actually begins now.
I’ve purchased This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales, and I’ll be reading it soon! I also want to read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. The former is my choice, and I've heard a lot of good things about Fangirl. Every BookTuber has been raging about it.
A: Are there characters that you honestly believe are real?
No, there aren’t.
However, I find myself wishing more than once that all of them are. Eragon, Skulduggery, Matt, Will, Jem, Harry…
N: Nobody touches my books or I don’t mind loaning my books out?
I lie somewhere in the middle.
I'm very particular about the conditions of my books until they actually get spoiled in some way, following which I’ll sulk for a few half hours and then I'm back to normal. So no, I don’t really mind loaning my books out provided you bring them back in good condition with NO creases on the spines!
D: Do you ever smell your books?
ALL THE TIME!
It’s actually the first thing I do when I get a book. I love smelling my books; some of them have this nice, new smell to them, some of them smell old and ancient, and some of them smell like bookstores… I can’t really say what they smell like, but they smell awesome. Most of them. Some of them don’t smell nice.
I was watching a lot of BookTube, and I came to know that most of them do not smell their books. Like, dude, you have 500 + books with you and you don’t smell them??? Something’s wrong… there was only one BookTuber who smelled his books. Respect bro!
I can actually identify which book I'm holding if I just smell it. In honour of this question, to answer to which I'm very passionate about, a quote is in order: “Isn't it odd how much fatter a book gets when you've read it several times?" Mo had said..."As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells...and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower...both strange and familiar.” – Cornelia Funke, Inkspell.
N: Not everyone loves books…is this a positive or a negative?
I don’t understand this question…
I think whether people like books or not is their opinion, and while I get annoyed, certainly, I think one should not really worry their head too much about this, because we all have different opinions and tastes.
But I think people should definitely read at least some books, because they’re missing out on SO much! Sure, some books are converted to movies, but there is so much that cannot be captured on screen that can be done on pages. There’s a certain feeling that you get when you read a good book, and seeing a book is not even close to being the same as reading one, no matter how close the movie adaptation is to the book.
And this, I think, is a negative. I think if you don’t like reading, you just haven’t found the right book to get you into the reading world. But there is a book that fits everyone, and you should try finding it.
G: Gosh! I have too many books! True or False?
A lot of people say I have too many books, but I don’t think so. I have a good amount: 120 something. I don’t have too many.
And compared to Book Tubers, I have a very minuscule amount.
H: Have you ever spilled or stained your books before with something, and if so how?
Yes, I have. *guilty face*
This was before I had mastered the art of reading and eating/drinking at the same time. I’d get so engrossed in the book that I wouldn’t notice my messy fingers when I turned the pages. So if you see some stains on some pages in some of my books, you'll know how that took place.
I promise I'm a pro now.
T: Toned or untoned? In other words, do you read and workout at the same time?
I don’t see how that’s even possible.
Imagine you lifting weights with one hand and holding up a book with the other; or running on the treadmill holding a book in front of you. How is that possible? I guess it is with audiobooks, but even so, that idea seems silly to me.
So no, I do not read and workout at the same time. I don’t work out in the first place.
And that was all there was for this tag! I actually enjoyed this tag; I think it’s very well done and the questions were great too! Thank you so much for reading people, and I hope you enjoyed it! I will see you again with a book review next time, or maybe a post discussing some book related fact, who knows with me? Till then, have a great time! Goodbye!
