Krista: Ever the Hunted because Erin Summeril is everything!!!
Can you stop reading at any time, or does it have to be a certain page or chapter?
Dawlyn: I can if I have to, but I prefer to at least stop at the end of a page or a sentence if that continues on to the next page.
Krista: I prefer to stop at the end of the chapter, but often have to stop reading wherever.
 
Do you eat or drink anything whilst reading?

Can you read listening to music or watching TV?

One book at a time, or several at once?

Krista: I usually am reading two books at once, but never more than that.
 
Reading at home or everywhere?
Dawlyn: EVERYWHERE! 🙂
Krista: EVERYWHERE!
 
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Dawlyn: Silently in my head
Krista: Silently in my head
 
Do you read ahead, or skip pages
Dawlyn: Only if I’m rereading a book; never if I haven’t read the book before.
Krista: I used to read ahead when I was younger, but haven’t in a long time. (The second act break up trope gave me too much anxiety)
 
Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
Dawlyn: Break it!!
Krista: Definitely have to break in that spine!
 
Do you write books, or just read them?
Dawlyn: I only read them

  2. What an awesome tag 🙂
    I almost DNFed Looking for Alaska myself, and didn’t enjoy it all that much in the end. I can’t wait for Flame in the Mist!! It’s supposed to be really good, but maybe I’ll try the author’s other books first.
    Great post, girls!

    1. Thanks so much we appreciate that!
      Dawlyn: I finished looking for Alsaska and didn’t enjoy it too much either and same with Paper Towns. Krista and I both loved The Fault in Our Stars though, and Jonh Green as a person! Even if his plots aren’t always the greatest, he has a beautiful writing style.

      We’re so excited for A Flame in the Mist and can’t wait to read her first two books as well! Thanks so much for stopping by!

      1. I guess my expectations were way too high when I first read John Green. Everyone raved about him! But, in the end, none of the books I’ve read (LFA and An Abundance of Katherines) captivated me. I’m glad he’s a nice person, though!
        You’re very welcome! ^^
