The Random Question Tag

I was tagged by Gloria @ Gloria The Violinist, so thank you.

Have you ever thrown a book?
Have I ever NOT thrown a book? 

Yes I have, usually when I'm frustrated or upset, but I quickly check it for any damages, and then feel remorseful.

Do you like lengthy books or short ones?
I like both, but I'm currently in a very bad place with reading. I can't seem to find a book that'll hold my attention for more than 10 minutes, so short books for now, but I do love long ones as well.

If you don’t like a book, do you stop reading it or finish it?
I immediately put it down. I'll only finish it if starts out well and towards the very end worsens. 

Do you stop reading when you’re tired, or when a chapter finishes?
When a chapter finishes, for the most part. Otherwise, If I have to. But with a really, really great book, I'll keep my eyes open with toothpicks if I have to.

How do you organize your shelf?
I don't. Okay ..... well, by height. 

Paperback or hardcover?
About 90% of my books are paperback, but I prefer hardcover.

A book you cannot wait to read?
Where do I start with this? Mostly: Throne of Glass, by Sarah J. Maas and Shadow and Bone, by Leigh Bardugo; because everyone has already read them and loved them. I need to know what the hype's about.

A book you wish could be turned into a graphic novel?
I'm not really a fan of the graphic novel genre, but probably Eleanor and Park. Get it? 

A book that disappointed you?
There's a healthy amount of disappointing books that I've read (or at least tried) this year, but I'll go with Half Bad, by Sally Green. I tried to forge through it, but I just couldn't. 

What book made you cry recently?
I've only ever cried reading two books, but that was a while ago. I don't usually cry while reading. 

Do you prefer buying books online or going to the bookstore?
Umm... DUH!!! Going to the bookstore of course. My bookstore doesn't have a very huge book collection, but a huge rush of adrenaline shoots through me whenever I walk in. 

Do you prefer to listen to music while reading or do you read in silence?
Never have and probably never will. I get distracted easily, so that won't be too smart. 

What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever experienced when reading a book?
I would say sympathising with the characters more than people I know in my everyday life, but then again that's common with a lot of readers, so I don't think it's that weird. 

What was your first fandom?
Honestly, I still don't have one. I mean I love a ton of books, but I usually fangirl on my own. A lot of my friends aren't readers, and so far I haven't bothered to find my own on-line bookish clique.

What fictional character do you relate to most?
I would have to say Mackenzie Bishop from The Archived, by Victoria Schwab. It was kind of like reading a book about myself. She was feeling so lonely and misunderstood and during that time I kind of felt the same way. 

What fictional character do you wish you were more like?
No one in particular, but should be someone kickass and brave. I still haven't come across (maybe I did but it hadn't come to mind) a book with a character I wanted to emulate so badly. Nikita. If I could have anyone's skill I'd love to have Nikita's. Then again who wouldn't?

If you could spend a whole day with five characters, who would you pick?
Aria from Under the Never Sky, Kenji from Shatter Me, Day and June from Legend, and of course Harry, Ron, and Hermione from Harry Potter
What is a book that exceeded all your expectations?
The Archived. I mean I expected to enjoy it, but I didn't think I'd fall in love with it's plot and characters.
