I wanted to post something a bit more exciting today, something different than my usual new on my bookshelf's or book reviews. So I googled 'fun bookish surveys' and the first result that popped up was one created by The Perpetual Page Turner. If you want to do this too, then I tag YOU! Link me in the comments or on my social media to your post so I can go and check it out :)

Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“I love my mom so much. I don't care if that's corny to say. I think on my next birthday, I'm going to buy her a present. I think that should be the tradition. the kid gets gifts from everybody, and he buys one present for his mom because she was there too. I think that would be nice." - The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.
Giving up not finishing a lot of classics that I needed to read for school/uni, instead of sticking them out and finishing them like a real man. lolz. no but srsly. I didn't even DISLIKE Jane Eyre and I haven't finished it yet. Same with Dracula.
