Summary:

This book is set in the mountain town of Remarkable. Remarkable is home to extraordinarily gifted, extraordinarily  talented, or just plain extraordinary. The one exception to that is a 10 year old girl named Jane Doe who is the most average and untalented person who ever lived in Remarkable. The only exception to that is her Grandpa John who is forgotten by everyone. Jane is the only student not attending Remarkable’s School for the Remarkably Gifted. Everything changes when the troublesome and downright criminal Grimlet twins enroll as the 2nd and 3rd students at the ordinarily average public schopl Jane attends. On top of that a strange pirate captain arrives in town to live in the mansion at the top of the hill which is said to be extremely haunted. Join Jane and many more characters on a series of adventures that pits some of Remarkable’s most infamous inhabitants and their secrets in danger.

The Reading Habits Tag

Hello everyone! I know I’ve been doing tags and awards a ton but amazing people like @MyTinyObsessions think I deserve to participate in these fun and amazing things. Thank you to @MyTinyObsessions and everyone else who has nominated me for a tag, award, or challenge. Not too many rules just thank the person(s) who nominated you, answer the questions, and nominate 3 or more people to do the tag

Now it’s my turn to answer the questions!

  1. Do you have a certain place for reading? I love to read in my bed
  2. Bookmark or random piece of paper? Bookmark. I only use a random piece of paper if I don’t have a bookmark.
  3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a certain chapter or number of pages? I have to eventually make myself stop reading at no particular point.
  4. Do you eat or drink while reading? Nope just me and the book 🙂 
  5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading? Are you kidding me? I get way too distracted way  too easily. 
  6. One book at a time or several at once? Several at once. 2 now but sometimes 3 once school starts.
  7. Reading at home or everywhere? I prefer at home. When I’m in a form of transportation I get nauseous and I never seem to read on vacation.
  8. Reading outloud or silently in your head? In my head. I only read out loud when reading to my cats.
  9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages? I only read ahead if I’m a bit nervous about the boom to make sure it turns out okay. I never skip pages.
  10. Breaking the spine or keeping it good as new? Most books I get from the library so I have to keep them decent. My own books stay in pretty good condition since I don’t read them too much.
  11. Do you write in your books? Nope! The closest I get is writing on sticky notes for school.
