25 Bookish Facts About Me…

Hey everyone!!
I came across a little post and I really liked the idea behind it, so I thought that I would do one about myself. The idea is to come up with 25 Bookish Facts about yourself and share it, so here are some little facts about me and hopefully this will be a good way for you all to get to know
me a little bit better. So, lets begin..

1) I am a slow reader and envy all those fast readers out there.
2) I am more of a night time reader, staying up until the early hours in the morning. This can be so peaceful.
3) I totally judge books by their covers.
4) I suffer with chronic migraines which sucks as a reader, as it can really damping the whole reading process. The joy can sometimes turn into misery.
5) I never read the Harry Potter series in the correct order the first time I read the books.
6) My least favourite genre is most probably Sci-fi.
7) I can’t read in a moving vehicle, especially a car, because I’ll either get carsick or a migraine. This doesn’t stop me from trying though!
8) I HATE lending out ANY of my books! I’ve had a bad history with this.
9) My favourite books when I was younger (the earliest I can remember) are; ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, ‘Matilda’ and ‘The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe’.
10) I love going through second hand bookshops and discovering little hidden gems.
11) My entire Roald Dahl collection was the first books I bought myself, setting up my very own account. I sadly don’t own those books any more.
12) My mother, a non-reader, once gave ALL of my books to a charity shop while I was at school, claiming I had too many books. I was FUMING!!
13) I 100% prefer physical books over eBooks or audiobooks, although I do read and listening to them all.
14) I can’t and won’t ever dog-ear, write or do anything that may damage my books.
15) I own so many books and I haven’t read about half of them. That doesn’t stop me continually buying more books.
16) Following on from *no15, that means that my current TBR list on books I already own is high. This is before including or thinking about any new TBR books I discover, or may have been released.
17) I will choose to read the book before watching the films adaptation, so there’s several films I still haven’t seen because I haven’t read the book yet.
18) I always have at least one book on me at all times!
19) I have a tub/box that’s just for bookmarkers and it’s almost full and sits on my bookshelf (one of them). But I still often use random things, eg. remote, my phone, another book as a bookmarker.
20) I love it when a book takes me by surprise.
21) My Amazon wish-list is a godsend. I can just add all the books I want or take my fancy, then when I think I deserve a new book, they’re all there in one place.
22) Sometimes I find it hard or it takes me longer to get into fantasy and dystopian books, simply because of their worlds.
23) I am bad when it comes to reading a book, to be constantly thinking and wondering about possible endings and twists, especially when reading a mystery, or a suspense. 9 out of 10 times I’m usually right, which can be good, but can spoil the ending of the book for me. Stupid overthinking brain.
24) There is no such thing as too many books. NEVER!
25) My Goodreads Reading Challenge for 2017 is 60 books. Fingers Crossed!

So there are just 25 little bookish facts about me and I hope you’ve gotten to know me a little bit better :). What are some 25 bookish facts about you?

Lets Get Back To Book Blogging :)

I haven’t posted anything on this site in such a long time and for that I would like to apologise. Not just to you but also to myself. I enjoyed writing reviews on the books that I had recently finished reading, coming up with different ideas so that this site wasn’t just a book review site, with tags and other daily books memes that go hand in hand within the book blogging community. I was enjoying doing all of this so much that I purchased this domain name, to match my twitter and Instagram name.

I had one goal when I took out this website, which was to post more. Not just book reviews, but everything book related that I could possibly come up with. This was going to be my way of staying in touch with other readers, as I live in a reality where I am surrounded by non-readers, except for one person. So when it comes to talking about books, it can be something of a struggle to do. My lack of posting hasn’t had anything to do with any lack of reading and therefore having nothing to post, because believe it or not, I have read so much more than I’ve read in a while. I have been in a bit of a slump, not a reading slump but a slump in general and I want to turn it all around. All of the books that I have been reading, I have read and left reviews of every single one of them on Goodreads.

I want to get back to posting reviews, creating idea and get back to all of this, back onto this site and doing it within the Book Blogging Community. Thank you all 🙂

Welcome

Hello fellow book bloggers and welcome to my blog CaughtWithABook. If you didn’t get it from the title, this blog is going to be about all things bookish. I have always had a great love of reading and being able to dive into a book and be transported into another world and I guess I can also do that with this blog, whilst also sharing my love, my thoughts and so on about everything.

Some of the things I will be hopefully including in this blog, now and in the future, are going to be; Book Reviews, Book Hauls, Tags, Discussions and so on. If these are things that you think you’ll be interested in, then please follow me and let me know if there is anything else you think I should be doing on my blog that I haven’t mentioned. I have included in more details a page “About Me” if you click on About on the Home page, which also includes contact information, if you need it.

This is just a short little welcome and introduction post and to say thank you for hopefully welcoming me once again into the wonderful world of the Book Blogging Community. Thank you and I hope to be posting more soon 🙂
