Welcome to Drink Coffee and Read Books. My name is Jade, I’m a Non-Binary Reader & Blogger behind Drink Coffee and Read Book. Here I’ll be sharing my love for YA Books (and occasionally New Adult & Adult), discussing all things bookish & book Reviews. I’m a bookworm, book hoarder, booklover, book blogger, and book reviewer. Drink Coffee and read books is dedicated to book reviews, general book chat, and recommendations. I will be posting reviews on books that are mostly from the Young Adult Genre.
When referring to me it’s great if you can use the name ‘Jade’.
My pronoun is they, them, their. I’m more comfortable with these pronouns, But I’ll really answer to any and all pronouns as long as they’re said with respect. You can read more about that and what that means HERE.
Random Facts about me:
~ My favourite Genres are Fantasy, Dystopian, Historical Fiction, Horror, Contemporary (mostly LGBT) and Mystery. But I enjoy most genres.
~ Winter is my favourite season, as it gives me an excuse to stay home and Read. It’s really the Perfect Reading Weather, and set the perfect mood.
~ At any given moment, I have at least 2 books on me, plus my phone, which has hundreds of Kindle Books on it.
~ I’m able to read multiple books at one time and keep track of what plot belongs to what book, Characters, Setting, Etc.
~ You’ll know when I love a book because I become a walking Advertisement for it. I do it in every aspect of my life, when I love something I learn everything about it and spout off random facts to anyone who will listen.
~ I Love Poetry; My Favourite Poets are Edgar Allan Poe, Oscar Wilde, and Arthur Rimbaud. Mostly Classics, but I’m still looking for some more Modern Poets that Catch my Interest, haven’t found any that I really enjoy yet.
~ I love reading and sharing thoughts about books with other people. This is a really obvious one, as this is the reason for creating this Blog.
~ My Favourite Authors are Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, Ellen Hopkins, David Levithan, and Chris Colfer.
~ My Favourite Book Series are The Infernal Devices, The Mortal Instruments, The Lovegrove Legacy, The Maze Runner, The Land of Stories, Tales From the Kingdoms, Magisterium, and Harry Potter.
~ My Favourite Classic is ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ by Oscar Wilde. But I also really Loved Maurice by E.M. Forster. These are some of the only Classics so far that I’ve loved. I don’t read Classics often, but I think I enjoy the Idea of them, more than I actually enjoy reading them. Which then leads to…
~ One of my goals is to read more classics. I Don’t read enough classics, So I want to broaden my Reading horizons.
~ Every Holiday/Trip I go on, I try to purchase a book while there, as a souvenir. When I went on Holiday to Melbourne, I went into over 20 Bookstores, New and Secondhand, and Purchased a Book from almost every Bookstore I went into.
~ Because my TBR is never ending and continually growing, I don’t usually re-read. There are so many more books to read and discover that could be just as amazing so I’d rather discover these new books than reread books.
~ I am an impulse Book Buyer. I have a book buying problem. I absolutely cannot go into a bookstore without buying a book, if I can’t afford any new books, I won’t go into a bookstore, because I know it’ll be way too hard to leave empty handed.
~ Most of the books on my bookshelves are unread. And I still go and buy more books, and borrow books from the library, plus as I mentioned above the hundreds of Kindle Books on my Phone.
~ I get easily distracted while reading. And I have a short attention span when it comes to reading: I will start a book and shortly after begin reading something else. I cannot reading for more than an hour or two at a time, unless It’s a book that I’m absolutely loving so there’s a few exceptions to this.
~ Although I have tons of bookmarks and I make my own bookmarks for my Etsy Shop, I end up using receipts as bookmarks, and really any other random pieces of paper, basically the closest thing to me at the time.
~ One of the most important things in a book for me are the characters. Other things that define my rating for a book are the writing style, the plot and the world-building. But honestly, if I really fall in love with the characters, I can usually ignore flaws in the rest of the writing.
~I’m a really slow reader. I read about 30-40 pages an hour. A 450 pages long book usually takes me a week to read. Unless I’m really enjoying it then I can read it a bit faster.
