Book Blogger TMI Tag!

Hi there!
As my first post on pages of worlds, I thought it would be fun to do a little tag for you to get to know me a bit. First and foremost, my name is Ari and I'm from Australia. Obviously I haven't been tagged by anyone for this, but I first saw the tag on 'The little engine that couldn't''s blog.
 Anyhoo, let's get started!

How old are you?
I've recently (in December) turned 18. Woo, adult life!

What book are you reading?
I am currently reading the second book in the Outlander series, Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. And holy dooley it is amazing.

What are you wearing?
A purple dress!

I find it impossible to choose only one, so I've narrowed down my faves:
Ron and Hermione
Dorian and Celaena
Tessa and Jem (I used to be Will and Tessa but lately have been leaning towards Jessa!)

Blogger or Wordpress?
Blogger at the moment.

Going outside being active or staying in and reading a book?
Reading a book, every time!!

What is the last book you read?
Graceling, by Kristin Cashore. Absolutely loved it, 5/5!

What is the book you're going to read next?
It depends on when my Book Depository order arrives, but possibly These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.

Ebooks - yes or no?
Personally, no. Just because I've worked in an independent bookshop and seen the effect that they are having on the book industry. However, I do appreciate the appeal and don't have a problem with people using them.

Where do you prefer to read?
If I'm at college, in bed. If I'm at home, on the lounge in my office/library room.

Who is the last person you tweeted?
I'm relatively new to twitter so am not very active on there, but Diana Gabaldon #queen.

Whose blog did you last look at?
The little engine that couldn't, where I saw this tag!

Who is your favourite blogger?
Sasha Alsberg, from abookutopia!

Who is your favourite book-tuber?
Same as the last question, however I also love Andreya, from Little Yellow Bookshop.

What do you do when someone tells you reading is boring?
Stare at them uncomprehendingly.

Who is the last author you spoke to?
David Burton, the author of How to be Happy. I participated in a theatre course where he was running a scriptwriting workshop!

Who is the last person you texted?
One of my best friends who I went to high school with.

Who is your all-time favourite book character?
Aaaah how can I choose one?!? I'd ultimately have to go with Hermione from Harry Potter, because she really helped to shape me into the person I am today. As with so many other HP fans, she let me know that it's okay to love learning and reading, and for that I will forever be grateful to QUEEN Jo Rowling.

I really don't have a preference, and I think I probably read a balance of the two.

What is your preferred drink while reading?
Tea, tea and more tea!

If you hated reading, what would you be doing instead?
Probably painting or knitting. But seriously, it hurts me to think of a world where I hated reading.

How many bookshelves do you have?
Three, but they are crazy overflowing and it won't be long before I'll have to invest in another I reckon!

If you had the choice to meet all your favourite book bloggers, or all your favourite authors who would you pick?
My favourite authors, because that would mean meeting J K Rowling, and need I say more??

Insta-love: yes or no?
As a bit of a hopeless romantic, it doesn't really bother me as much as it seems to most other readers. However, it does need to be done well in order to not sound completely cheesy.

Favourite author?
Forever and always,  J K Rowling.

What is the number one book on your wishlist?
Cinder by Marissa Meyer! I've heard SO much about the Lunar Chronicles series on booktube and book blogs and I need to get my hands on them!!!

Do you prefer books with female or male protagonists?
Female, because I find them easier to relate to.

Which is your favourite book-to-film adaptation?
Apart from the entire HP series, which I feel like I am answering with for too many questions in this post, I would have to say Divergent, or The Fault in Our Stars. Also special mention to The Hunger Games series! (How freaking incredible was Mockingjay Part 1!!)

What is the last song you listened to?
Youth, by Troye Sivan. Absolutely love him.

Which do you enjoy reading more - positive or negative reviews?
While I do find negative reviews interesting, I prefer positive reviews, particularly of books I've read and loved so that I can fangirl with bloggers about them!

Who are you going to tag?
All of you!

Have a wonderful day, let me know in the comments if you've done this tag, or what your OTP is!

Love always,
