How I Read Books Tag!

Hi lovelies,
 
So today I bring you a book tag! I actually found and did this tag a wee while ago, but when I was clearing out my blog the other night, I found it in drafts (I'm guessed a scheduled post that never went live - naughty blogger!) so here it is!
 

1. How do you find out about new books to read? 
 
Watching booktube videos (particularly Amanda Egle, Thoughts on Tomes, Linsdsey Rey and PeruseProject), checking out recent additions to the libraries I work in, book blogs, twitter and goodreads!
 
2. How did you get into reading? 

Unlike a lot of people who have done this tag, I don't come from a long line of avid readers. I got into reading through school (because you had to) and then one of my teachers read Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone aloud in class and that was that I was hooked. As an adult (within the last few years) I got back into being an avid reader by working in libraries but mainly booktube!

3. How has your taste in books changed since you’ve gotten older? 
 
Well obviously there's been the natural progression from children's to adults books! But in general, I've been more willing to try different genres and I've particularly fell in love with science fiction which I never thought would happen.
 
4. How often do you buy books? 
 
Very regularly. I generally have a book treat when I get paid and then buy bits as the month goes depending on if I read a book that's part of a series that I enjoy and want the sequel or if I'm in a bit of a slump and need something that excites me to get me going again!
 
5. How did you get into booktubing? 
 
I only watch videos on booktube, and it was actually off the recommendation of a friend I work with in the library. But after getting into booktube, I realised I wanted to take my blog in a new direction, and decided to start writing about books, because I found I enjoyed it and I actually felt like I knew what I was talking about!
 
6. How do you react when you don’t like the ending of a book? 
 
Frustration, anger, sadness! Generally in that exact order. I usually have a good rant on both twitter and Goodreads and then of course later follow up with another rant if I review the book on the blog!
 
7. How often have you taken a sneaky look at the back page of a book to see if it’s a happy ending? 
 
Never. There's been a few times where I've flicked to the back then changed my mind! 
 
8. How many people are you going to tag, and who are they?
 
I'm going to tag YOU, whoever you are, reading this! Get tagging!

If you do this tag, please link it up below, have a wicked Wednesday folks!
