1. Last Book I Bought
And Then All Hell Broke Loose: Two Decades in the Middle East by Richard Engel. I have a huge interest in history and studied at history at university, but unfortunately, I know very little about the Middle East’s history despite being very interested in it. I bought this on Kindle deals and I’m really looking forward to learning more about this topic.
2. Last Book I Re-Read
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. It was a favourite the first time I read it and it’s still a favourite after my re-read. I adore this book and it means a lot to me. You can read my review here and an analysis of Evelyn’s character here, if you want to know more of my thoughts on the book.
3. Last Book I Gave Up On
Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett. It’s the second book I picked up from the Discworld series and I really like the series, but wasn’t in the mood for this particular book at the time I was reading it. I’ll definitely come back to the book to finish it and will continue with the series.
4. Last Book I Said I Read But Didn’t
I can’t actually remember. I don’t recall ever lying about reading a book. Even when I was at school and had compulsory reading to do I would read the books that were set because I liked reading or I’d straight up say if I hadn’t read it. My teachers did not appreciate that though 😂
5. Last Book I Wrote in the Margins Of
Wuthering Heights, no surprise there. I love this book and I love annotating it with my thoughts and feelings as I read it. Generally, I don’t write in books that often but I want to do it more because I feel like it helps me to engage more with the book and get more from the reading experience.
6. Last Book That I Had Signed
Confession time: I’ve never had a book signed 😲 I’m not the type of person that gets invested in authors. Even with books or series that I’ve loved and been borderline obsessed with (*cough* Harry Potter *cough*), I tend to separate them from the author a lot and just focus my energy and love onto the book and the fictional world itself.
7. Last Book I Lost:
I don’t think I’ve ever lost a book. I have such little space to keep my books that if I lost one it would be very noticeable because I know every book I own and where it’s kept. I also tend to take ebooks with me when I’m out and about so I don’t really mislay books at other places.
8. Last Book I Had to Replace
I’ve never replaced a book because A) I’ve never lost a book and B) I tend to keep my books in good condition so they don’t need replacing. Although, I’m expecting that I’ll need to get a replacement copy of Wuthering Heights one day because I just can’t stop reading and annotating this book 😂
9. Last Book I Argued Over
I wouldn’t say I ever argue over books, more that I have discussions or debates. The last debate I had was about The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I posted some of my thoughts online and was quite critical with my views, expressing the things that I disliked and someone who was a huge fan of the series disagreed with most of what I said. But it was all respectful and more of a discusson sharing our different views. That’s what reading is all about for me – discussing books with others and sharing differences in opinion and thoughts. After all, reading is completely subjective!
10. Last Book You Couldn’t Find
Again, never not been able to find a book because I own so few 😂 My dream is to one day have so many books that it’s possible for me to not be able to find a specific book I’m looking for. Forever dreaming of Belle’s library from Beauty and the Beast.
Stay safe, my lovelies and keep reading.
