Book Tag|| Anonymous Bookaholics.

Hey!

Today is my Friday, because I get to have tomorrow (actually Friday) off work. Super stoked about that! I decided to request it off because it’s my mom’s birthday and we have family from out of state visiting. On Saturday we’re having a birthday party for her, which will be cool! πŸ˜€ Anyway, I was tagged by Avery from Red Rocket Panda to do the Anonymous Bookaholics tag. You should go check out Avery’s blog! πŸ™‚

Questions:

What do you like about buying new books?

I love the look and feel of books. Especially if they have bright colorful artwork on the cover or pretty fonts. I also love having my bookshelves all set up with so many books on it. It’s actually killing me right now that I currently do not have any bookshelves and that all my books are packed away. I miss being able to stare at them and admire them, lol. Hopefully soon this changes! But honestly, I just LOVE books, reading them, collecting them, everything! GIVE ME ALL THE BOOKS!!!!

How often do you buy new books?

I don’t buy books too often these days, because I already have so many that I need to read and I am also trying to save money. I might buy a few a month or go months without buying. I used to buy TONS every single month though, but have since stopped.

Bookstore or online book shopping – Which do you prefer?

I love checking out different bookstores, but because I don’t have a ton of money I usually buy online. It’s cheaper online, sadly.

Do you have a favorite bookshop?

I don’t really have a favorite bookshop. There was a used bookshop here called Second Edition Book Shop and they had a cat named Catsby that lived there. I really liked going there and checking out all the books that they got in.Β Sadly the book shop closed down though. 😦

Do you pre-order books?

I do pre-order books. I usually only pre-order my auto-buy authors’ new books or a book that I absolutely cannot live without and need it on release day, lol. But mostly it’s just my auto-buy authors that I pre-order.

Do you have a monthly book buying limit?

No monthly limit, but I try not to spend a ton of money a month when I do buy books. So I guess I try to limit myself to $30-50 if I do happen to buy some books.

How big is your wishlist?

My Goodreads TBR is kind of crazy long right now of the books that I want to read that I don’t own, lol. I do have an Amazon wishlist of books though and it’s pretty decent sized. It’s 100+ books, LOL. UGHHH.

Which three books from your wishlist do you wish to own NOW?

Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett
Heretics Anonymous by Katie Henry
The Lightning Thief Illustrated Edition by Rick Riordan
* Percy linked to Amazon, because I couldn’t find on Goodreads*

I just recently found out that there is now an illustrated edition of The Lightning Thief and I seriously need to own it like ASAP! That $25 price tag though has me hesitating, ughhhh! I love Rick Riordan so much though and I love Percy Jackson. I added it to my Christmas wishlist too, so we’ll see what happens. If not, I might have to breakdown and spend the money. I’ve also been eyeing Starry Eyes FOREVER! I also found out about Heretics Anonymous a few months ago and it sounds so good and I need it!

I Tag:

Maren (The Worn Bookmark)
Aimee (Aimee, Always)
Kelly (Another Book in the Wall)
Lilly (Lair of Books)
Kristin (Kristin Kraves Books)

And anyone else that wants to do this tag! It was a lot of fun and I would love to see your answers. So feel free to link me to your posts if you decide to do it.

  1. I buy books by the cover and if the story seems to interest me. I buy online since there are no bookstores in my area. I do not have a car. I tend to buy many books frequently.

  2. A very happy birthday to your mom, Ashley! I hope you’ll have a fantastic time celebrating today πŸ™‚
    I really loved reading your answers here and I also can’t wait to read Starry Eyes, that one sounds amazing πŸ˜€

  3. I’m totally the same about book buying now, too! I used to buy AT LEAST 4 a month, but now I can go with just buying 1 book a month. πŸ™‚ You totally need to read Starry Eyes–it was so cute. And I NEED the Lightning Thief illustrated edition gah. 😍 Happy birthday to your mom! And thanks so much for the tag. 😊

    • It actually feels nice when I don’t buy a ton of books, haha. I always feel guilty when I do buy a lot of books (like this month, ugh) because I already have so many unread books. I finally bought Starry Eyes! Should be delivered to me tomorrow and I am stoked! I put the Lightning Thief illustrated edition on my Christmas list this year, I hope someone buys it for me because I need it HAH. Thanks! πŸ™‚
