My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
I have been looking forward to doing this one since I saw it back in May on The Comfy Reader. I am the proud owner of three cats, including one who likes to be little spoon to my big spoon in bed.
I wasn’t tagged in this but I really want to do this one, so thank you to Deanna for sharing this tag and I hope you all go and check out her post.

Purr – As cats do this when they’re happy or relaxed, what is the book that make you happiest or relaxed?
A book that I always go back and it always makes me feel happy and comfortable, and basically like purring is
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I know that every time I do a post with Pride and Prejudice I get a few people who say they haven’t read it yet, and I completely understand you not having read it, it is a heavy book that is not for everyone, but I do hope that you read it. It’s a classic for a reason.
Sleep – What is a book that put you to sleep, or was boring?
This is going to sound awful but I haven fallen asleep to many books over the years. I tend to listen to audiobooks just before I go to sleep which means that by definition I’m trying to sleep while listening to them.
But some books I have fallen asleep to (in recent memory) are:
The Hidden Oracle (Trials of Apollo #1) by Rick Riordan
Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony by Eoin Colfer
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Twitch while dreaming – Have you ever dreamt of a book you read?
I used to do it a lot, now not so much. I really think that it is a sign of a great book. The last book I really remember dreaming about is
Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
Seems to play nice until the claws are out – Which book had the biggest plot twist?
I love a good plot twist but even some of the biggest ones I find slightly predictable because you know thre is going to be a plot twist.
I think maybe the best one I have read is
Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
Cuddles – Which book character would you give a hug to?
All of them!
Cat breeds – What are you favourite books?
Before I started tracking exactly what genres I read I would have said that I am a through and through fantasy girl. Rick Riordan and Eoin Colfer, Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo being top of my list, but more and more I just seem to be reading straight romance.
Getting the cat – How did you find your favourite book(s)?
Before I became involved in the blogging community I found all my favourite books just from browsing the shelves in Waterstones. I would fins something that looked interesting, read the blurb then read the book. But since I’ve been blogging I find most of my favs from other bloggers.
The vet’s office – Your least favourite book
I honestly couldn’t say what my least fav book is. And I think if I did know it would be unfair of the book and the author to put it here.
Being in places they shouldn’t – least favourite cliché
I did a whole month of #S4S dedicated to tropes and cliches. Here are a list of my least favourite tropes.
The good old carboard box – most underrated book series
I could talk about a few series that I almost never hear around booktwitter and the like but I think I’ll just talk about my favourite two.
Stage Dive series by Kylie Scott
The Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter
And that’s it for today. If you are doing any book tags I hope that you would tag me, but it’s okay if you don’t.
And until next time, happy reading!
