I was tagged by the wonderful Kat @LifeAndOtherDisasters to do this tag. Thank you once more! ❤ 😀 Be sure to check out her blog, she is freaking amazing and her blog is!

How do you find about new books to read?
I mostly find out about new books on GoodReads and book blogs (and from booktubers) that I follow. Most book bloggers write about the books they are exited for, that they loved and so on. That’s basically where I learn about new books. On GoodReads I tend to browse the lists and look at a specific genres. I do also pick up books at random when I’m at the book store, if they happen to catch my eye (though that doesn’t happen that often anymore).
How did you get into reading?
I have always been a reader ever since I was very young. That’s because my mom used to read books to me and later we read books together. The biggest influence on my reading when I was younger had The Chronicles of Narnia, as they were the books I loved the most at that time and the one that my mom and I read the most together.
How has your taste in books changed as you got older?
Yes it has, though not as much as I thought it would. 😄 Basically I have always loved fantasy books, no matter what age I was – it has always been my favouirte genre to read from. Now onto what has changed:
- I’m reading a lot more YA books than I used to (mostly because I wasn’t that exposed to the genre and didn’t really know about the books), plus I remember reading many adult books and classics some years ago,
- I don’t read many books in Serbian anymore. Serbian is my first language and the one I (obviously) read the most when I was younger. Around 3 or 4 years ago I started reading books in English and I read mainly in that language now. (Though I do read in German and Serbian from time to time, maybe one book every few months.)
That are basically the only two things that come to mind right now.
How often do you buy books?
Not really that often. I either buy books once a month (as I buy them online and order them in one go) or I go to a bookstore a few times in a month. I buy around 4 books a month – sometimes less, sometimes more it really depends.
How did you get into book reviewing?
I actually discovered booktube first and it sparked my interest in reviewing books and talking about them. As I don’t feel comfortable in front of a camera I knew I couldn’t really do the reviews on youtube. That’s when I discovered book blogs and I knew it was something I wanted to do. That’s basically how all of this started! 😀
How do you react when you don’t like the ending of a book?
Well it depends on the rest of the book. If I didn’t enjoy the book I don’t really care about the ending, or whether I liked it or not. When it’s a book that I really enjoyed and I didn’t enjoy the ending I would be disappointed. As most people would be. What would I do then? Mostly complain about it in a review or find people who didn’t like it either and talk to them about it. When I have let out the frustration and disappointment I feel a lot better. (Especially when I find other people who feel the same way.)
How often do you take a sneak peak at the ending to see if there’s a happy ending?
I used to do this a lot when I was younger. (And I mean a lot younger, when I was around 9 or 10.) I just wanted to know if the characters I liked and cared about would have a happy ending or not. I don’t do that now. I don’t want to spoil the story for myself and I enjoy being surprised and exploring the story as it happens without knowing the ending. Though there is an exception – when I’m really not enjoying the book I might skim read it to see how it’s going to end.
Wow. I really had a lot of fun writing this! 😀 I seriously have no idea who has done this tag and who hasn’t, so I tag EVERYONE who wants to do it.
Thank you for reading. I hope you have a wonderful day!
