Get to Know Me (Us) Tag

Hello you lot!

How is everyone doing? Hope you’re all great!
We weren’t tagged to do this post but we saw it over at Reading With Jessica and we couldn’t resist. Y’all should show some love to Jess because her blog is wonderful!!

 


 

BOOKS

Can you stop reading at any time, or does it have to be a certain page or chapter?

Claudia: I can absolutely stop reading at any time, no matter what’s going on in the book.
Diana: I can stop reading at any time except when crap is about to hit the fan. I NEED to know what happens next.

 

Do you eat or drink anything whilst reading?

Claudia: I like to eat snacks, specially candy and drink… Pretty much anything.
Diana: I don’t eat while reading because I’m messy as all heck. I do drink though!

 

Can you read listening to music or watching tv?

Claudia: Totally, I like the background tv sound while I read.
Diana: I can listen to music except One Direction because I can only concentrate on singing and being emotional. I don’t watch TV while reading, I’m not that good at multitasking.

 

One book at a time or several at once?

Claudia: I’m loyal to one book at a time.
Diana: Several. An audiobook, a physical book, a re-read and an ARC.

 

Reading at home or everywhere?

Claudia: Anywhere but a car or bus, I get carsick.
Diana: Reading everywhere!

 

Reading out loud or in your head?

Claudia: In my head 100%, I don’t even laugh out loud.
Diana: Reading in my head.

 

Do you read ahead or skip pages?

Claudia: I do skip ahead if I’m not really into the book.
Diana: I read ahead if the story doesn’t catch me. If I’m absolutely loving the story then I read every single word.

 

The spine that I (Diana) accidentally broke.

Breaking the spine or keeping it new?

Claudia: I have yet to break a spine and I don’t really like the idea of it so keeping them new.
Diana: Keeping it new! I broke the spine of Dating You/Hating You and my heart broke along with it.

 

Do you write books or just read them?

Claudia: I’ve written some bits and pieces of a couple books but nothing serious. For now just reading them.
Diana: I just read them but hopefully some day I’ll write one or two or tons!

DO YOU

Believe in love at first sight?

Claudia: I’m a hopeless romantic so yes.
Diana: The skeptical part of me says no. The hopeless romantic part of me says heck yes.

 

Believe in ghosts?

Believe in aliens?

Claudia: Sometimes lol.
Diana: Surely we’re not the only ones in this universe?

 

Believe in soulmates?

Claudia: Definitely.
Diana: I DO.

 

Believe in heaven and hell?

Claudia: Not as physical places.
Diana: Maybe? I don’t think they are places. I think you live your “hell” or “heaven” as time passes. If you do bad things, you’ll most likely live in regret and misery which is “hell”. If you’re an amazing human being, you’ll live a great life which is “heaven”. Or maybe I just think that way because I want life to be fair in the end. Can you tell I believe in karma? Don’t mind me. I’m a nut-job.

 

Believe in yourself?

Claudia: Sometimes
Diana: Most days I don’t.

On top of your bucket list?

How would you describe your fashion sense?
