Hello guys !
Another week has gone by which means it’s time for a new tag. Today I’m choosing to do the Anonymous Bookaholics book tag because I finally made my peace with the fact that I, indeed, am a bookaholic -I’ve always been good with that, this is for dramatic effect only. I was tagged by my lovely best friend Sara @ Freadom Library because she apparently wants me to confess some things. I have nothing to hide *gulps*. Aaaanyway, let’s get this interrogatory over with.
What do you like about buying new books?
Mmm, having material to read? What kind of silly question is this? But seriously, just the thrill of holding a new book, the smell of it is super awesome especially to me, because I rarely get to buy physical books. It’s a very special feeling.
How often do you buy new books?
I don’t know? every month? Although I haven’t bought any this month because I’ve been reading a lot of arcs I was anticipating so that kind of got my urge to buy books under control. Other than that, I get a few e-books a month, I keep an eye out for deals so that I can actually afford more than one book a month -when I want to buy more than one. I am pretty good with buying books actually, I never go overboard.
Bookstore or online book shopping – Which do you prefer?
Bookstores for sure. But since my options there are pretty limited, I resort to online shopping which has more options but is also more expensive. SO. They kind of even out a bit.
Do you have a favorite bookshop?
I don’t even have bookstores to choose from *shrugs*. The struggles of living in a third world country where English isn’t a widely spoken language. There’s a little independent bookstore deep in the city, which I talk about here, but I don’t go there as much as I would like to since it’s pretty far away from where I live and I’m a lazy potato so I never feel like driving that far. I’m also broke. So yeah haha!
Do you pre-order books?
Actually, the first and only time I EVER preordered books is last month when I preordered both History is All you Left me and A Conjuring of Light. I already have the first (which I’m buddy-reading next week) but still waiting for my copy of the later to come. And My patience is running out.
Do you have a monthly book buying limit?
Naaah, as I said, I don’t go overboard with buying books, I mostly stick to deals and the ones I want too desperately to actually wait for deals on them haha. So, yeah I don’t have a limit.
Book buying bans – Are they something for you?
Refer to my last answer. Although if I actually had the funds to buy a lot of books I’d need one because nothing would be able to hold me back. *stares dreamily into the distance*
How big is your wishlist?
HAHAHAHAHA. That’s a funny question. You don’t want to know, because it’s ridiculously enormous. Especially with all the amazing diverse (especially #ownvoices) books coming out this year. It’s unmanageable, it will eat me up alive. It will stomp me. SEND HELP.
Which three books from your wishlist do you wish to own NOW?
Only three? sigh. These three books are definitely the top 3, 2017 releases that aren’t out yet and that I’m in desperate need to read.
Saints and Misfits by S. K. Ali – JUST LOOK AT THAT GORGEOUS COVER. And the MC is a Muslim and Arab-Indian. And I am two of those things which makes me freaking extatic to read it.
Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore – Because duh? Everything that woman produces is pure magic, may it even be a fridge notice. She’s one of my favorite authors, and I can’t wait to read this mesmerizing new story of here.
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton – Go read the synopsis and come back, if you’re not dying to read it too, what is wrong with you? Okay, I’m just kidding but the premise sounds brilliant.
That’s it until next time.
Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.
