Greetings, dear readers!
I am one of the July 23 stop for the Truth or Dare Blog Tour that Paper Lantern Lit has put together to celebrate Truth or Dare by Jacqueline Green.
As part of the blog tour all of the participating bloggers have to complete one truth and one dare. (I have heard rumors of one blogger needing to write a love letter so I think I came off pretty easy!) We even have a
creepy conscientious anonymous twitter account to make sure we stay on track (and give other–more annoying challenging dares on Twitter).
My DARE is to: rename Truth or Dare as if it were a Pretty Little Liars book.*
But I am tricky! So I am renaming it as if it were the first book which means I can use more than one word.
Obviously the original title is best but I’d re-title this book as . . .
. . . Dirty Little Secrets
You’ll have to take my word for it if you haven’t read the book yet, but trust me, there are a lot of dirty secrets and ugly reveals in this book!
My TRUTH is: What is your biggest
book sin dirty little book secret?
Here it is: Sometimes I read books backwards.
In some cases that means I skim to the end and read the last page or so. I can’t tell you how many times I have done that only to completely ruin a book for myself. It’s an illness, to be sure. Generally when I jump to the last page it’s because I’m so invested in a book that I MUST know what happens right away.
In other cases, when I am not enjoying a book, I will jump ahead to the last chapter and read that. If the chapter makes sense, I’m done. Onto the next book. If it doesn’t I’ll read the penultimate chapter and so on until everything does make sense and I have a clear picture of the plot and of how things wrap up in the story.

*This is funny because I keep typing Pretty Little Liars when I want to type Paper Lantern Lit!
