I've seen this tag around and I was waiting for somebody to tag me (haha, please laugh :p) and tadaaa! I'm here, so what it means? 

It means,
I am tagged! 

Who, who, who?
Stefanie Sugia from The Bookie-Looker

I couldn't be more happier (so far when I write this down), so here we go!!

1.  What are your top three book pet hates?
 Sticker on books. I don’t care if that book has been adapted into movie or is it on sale or whatever. Just don’t stick any single thing on my book. Why do you need to make it permanent on my lovely cover and why do you need to stick it directly on the book instead of its plastic…..why… 
Cover changes on series. It’s fine if it makes the book more beautiful, but what if…nay. Let’s see Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi. The first book has that ugly ugleeehhh version of it and the beautiful one. But then, it doesn’t have that beautiful cover in hardback. So I have mixed formats for the series. Why can’t you complete the ver.A of its cover then make ver. B after it? It’s more fair that way ;A; 
Messed pages. I need to calm down *inhales-exhales*. I never checked pages on a book, but one day, I was already 140 pages or so into a book and DANG! I was on page 216. I needed to return the book to the bookstore and finally read it like a week after it. I didn’t fully remember the story and the last page I read. So I ended up not enjoying the book when everybody loved the book so much. 
What book?Bangkok by Moemoe Rizal. And guess what? The book and its cover finally separated now. My friend just made it like that xD
And since then, I always check the pages before I read :") 
2. Describe your perfect reading spot.
No friends, no phone. I get distracted easily while reading so I refuse to read when my friends are around but I hardly can get my phone away. It’s always with me and switch it off is not a choice, because I will switch it on again. Somebody needs to get it away from me. 
Crowded room . It’s kinda weird isn’t it? Well, the fact is, I feel safe when I know there’s somebody around me or just listening to the crowd walking, talking, doing their business when me myself diving into my book. Or at least having an on TV even if I don't watch it is fine. But please refer to the first note. Crowded room with no friends :) 
Somewhere to lean on. I’d really love to read on a chair with my neck-pillow with me or in a car where I can push my seat back then lean to the seat next to me. Oh that’s so comfy. Be lazy-lazy reader.
3. Tell us three book confessions.
I can hardly sit and read. I’m an extrovert, remember? 
I talk to myself while reading. It’s as if I have reading friend or my pillow is my friend but I really love to comment on a book.  Most of the time I spend on reading is to comment on them. 
I started reading last year's April. You know what it means? It means I haven't read TMI, Harry Potter (yeah I know, I know, you can throw bananas on me), Twilight, and more popular series. My promise is, I will start them really soon (re: I don't know when, but I will).
and no, I don't read while doing my little business :p It's distraction for me XD

4. When was the last time you cried during a book?
It was like 3 weeks ago? Or a month? I cried while reading Unravel Me and Ignite Me. Why are you guys so unfair to him? Not fair. I’m his team. Please…shoo-shoo away.You don't have the right to judge what's mine *smirks*

5. How many books are on your bedside table?
The fact is, my favorite bookshelf is located next to my bed. I have 38 books on it right now and an iBook with 20 or so in it. I'm not a calculator, please, I've stopped counting since national exam ended.
6. What is your favorite snack whilst your reading?
I hardly eat while reading because I know I'll chose what my tummy needs more, oops. But orange juice, oat cookies, hot tea, fruits, and other juices are acceptable. You..are...the only exception *sings* <-- I'm a healthy girl \0/
7. Name three books you would recommend to everyone.
I don't have a lot of choices to recommend to everyone because everyone has read what I read and what I haven't. So please, at least pretend that you haven't kay? 

The Alchemyst for those who love fantasy
Shatter Me series for dystopian lovers.
Cheeky Romance for romance seekers ;)

8. Show us a picture of your favorite bookshelf on your bookcase.
This shelf is for my recently bought books. So yesh, I love them. See those mugs? They're both from my secondary school, and they fell, and PANG!! They're here now. How I miss to drink from them :(

9. Write how much books mean to you in just three words.
Peeta, Aaron, Maxon. 
These characters mean a LOT to me. And please, I can’t describe it in three words. You can’t even sleep when you’re having insomnia right? Because you have 3274895 more reasons to make it more than 3 words ;D
I am Divergent.
It means I can't be controlled so, no three words aren't enough. You know, why do we have a lot of words when we can only use three??? Books, books, books. Screw you three words thingy. I want to be more than 3. I don't even know how. Okay, I just want a revenge for the 3 words so I make this seems long. Haha. done.  
10. What is your biggest reading secret?
You can't steal my books. They will always comeback to me. 
"Please return me to my mama:((" - my books

And NO! I don’t have my address on it lol!
Lastly I tag Neysa @ Papier Revue because I want to see your shelf <3 and also because I think everyone I want to tag has done it or they've been tagged ._.
But please people, whoever haven't done this and want to do this, DO it!

*spreads loves, flower, bananas everywhere*

Don't forget to blame my layout for making this post longer than it already has!
