Bookish 2 Truths & 1 Lie

This post is going to be short and sweet.

Two truths and a lie is basically a game where you tell the players three facts about yourself. Two of the facts are the truth, and one is a lie. The players then have to guess which one is the lie, except in this post, we’re narrowing down the fact pool. This time… it has to be BOOK THEMED.

Thank you Marta @ The Book Mermaid for tagging me!

The Rules!

  • Create a post with your two bookish truths and one bookish lie – but be sure to keep it a secret so your readers can guess
  • Reveal the lie in a spoiler at the bottom of your post. You can use this HTML code:
Reveal the Lie



Can you sniff out the lie?

  1. I haven’t broken my book buying ban yet.
  2. I sort my books by color on my bookshelves.
  3. As a kid, I used to absolutely HATE reading.

Before revealing the lie, make sure to comment down which one you think is the lie!

Reveal the Lie!

It’s #1! I actually have broken my (so far) two-year long book buying ban recently. Well… it’s more of a rule for buying books than a ban, but it’s basically I have to read three books before I can buy one. It was to encourage me to be more selective with the books I buy (since I read so slowly) and actually buy a book I know I’m for sure going to read. It was also to decrease the amount of unread physical books I own. It’s kind of sad how many books have been laying on my shelf unread over the years. Have I made a dent in it? Ehhh… sort of.

What is the book that caused me to break this long ban, you ask? You see… I really wanted to get my hands ofΒ We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal, and I hadn’t read another three books yet. So… I bought it anyway. It came in the other day and it’s GORGEOUS. I haven’t gotten around to actually reading it, but I’m thinking about reading it on my upcoming 14 (!!) hour flight. Yes, you heard that right, folks. Fourteen hours… in a cramped chair… in a hunk of metal… hurtling through the lower stratosphere. Wish me luck, my friends. I’m going to need it.

    I think that you’ve broke your book buying ban, that seems like a lie to me! Books are so fun and beautiful and gorgeous, and it seems impossible to keep a blogging ban for even more than a month! But then again, libraries do exist, so who knows?

      Welp you guessed correctly! Although I do need to go to the library more often now that you mention it… 😊
