Hello everyone! I've been away for a couple of days, so I haven't read as much. Which means I don't have a boo to review just now. So I've decided to do this fun tag instead. Without further ado, let's get right to it!

A character appearance that you misread or imagined differently.
I'm sure there are a lot, but the first that comes to mind is rowan from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I always forget about his tattoos and I always imagine his hair the wrong colour. Then it's mentioned again and I'm a little bit startled every time. I couldn't even tell you what hair colour I imagine him having. I just know it's not silver.
A character name that you've been pronouncing wrong
I'm going to have to go with another Sarah J. Maas character. Feyre from A Court of Thorns and Roses series. I pronounced it wrong for the entire first book until I got to the pronunciation guide at the end. In hindsight, I should have checked that first. I don't remember exactly how I was pronouncing it because I'm so used to pronouncing itFey-RUH now, but I think it was something like Fey-reh. Ooops.
An overused trope that is your guilty pleasure
Definitely the bad-boy with dark past and a soft chewy center trope. I don't know what it is about it, but I just love it. When it's well done, of course.
A cliche character type that you like seeing more on screen than reading about
I don't really like this one in either format, but the mean cheerleader/popular girl and jock bully. I find it tolerable on screen, but I absolutely hate reading about it.
A word/phrase that you learned because of its use in a book
I've really had to think about this one. There are a ton, because I've been reading pretty much for as long as I can remember. One that comes to mind is "bergamot". I had no idea what that was before reading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. Thanks Jace for letting me know that Earl Grey tea contains bergamot.
Have you ever not read or completed a required-reading book for school?
Oh yes. Quite a lot actually. It's not my fault we had to read the most boring books in history. In my defense, I did read most of the books. I just never read the final chapters because I ran out of patience.
Have you ever cancelled social plans to read a book?
I don't think so. I tend to just not make social plans in the first place. Although I have been known to go to social events and just read instead of actually socializing. Oh well.
How about you? Have you ever cancelled social plans in favour of reading? What words has reading taught you? Let me know in the comments!
