Hey guys! I was tagged by the lovely Sam @ onebookishgirl to do this a while back and it has been long overdue… She’s seriously one of the sweetest people around and her posts are always so much fun to read, so please check out her blog! She has tons of great reviews and other amazing content.
Thanks once again, Sam! And sorry for the wait…
E-book or Physical book?
I really depends. At home, I do like physical books. But I always like to have the e-book too to carry with me when I’m out and about. It’s just so convenient!
Paperback or Hardback?
Hardbacks sure are the Holy Grail of books, but they’re usually a lot heavier and so much more expensive. No question that they look and feel better, but if I have to choose between buying one or the other, I’ll usually go for paperback (unless it’s a book I absolutely love or it’s cheaper than the paperback).
Online or In-Store Book Shopping?
I love going into bookstores! It gives me such a nice, relaxing feeling. But I rarely buy from them… I usually just do all of my shopping online, unless I happen upon a really great deal.
Trilogies or Series?
Either one, so long as it makes sense for the story.
Heroes or Villains?
Both, so long as they are well-written. I hate whiny, goody-two-shoes heroes who bring nothing new to the table, and flat villains who end up being more pathetic than evil.
A Book You Want Everyone To Read?
There are so many! But if I had to make a quick choice, maybe His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. It’s an amazing and unique series.
Recommend an Underrated Author?
Juliet Marillier! I’m not sure how popular she actually is, but I don’t see much of her on other people’s posts nowadays. And it’s a shame because she writes such wonderful books! If you a fan of Fantasy and Celtic stories, you should definitely check her out.
The Last Book You Finished?
Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?
I’ve used coasters and empty snack packs. Although I own around thirty different bookmarks…
Used Books: Yes or No?
I don’t mind used books, but for some reason I don’t own many. That needs to change!
Top Three Favorite Genres?
Fantasy, Young Adult and Historical.
Borrow or Buy?
I like to buy my own books. I like to take my time with them and not have to worry about giving them back or messing them up. Plus, I can re-read them as many times as I want. But I might borrow a book if I’m not really sure I’ll like it.
Character or Plot?
It’s not a choice, really. You need both for the story to truly come together!
Long or Short Books?
It depends on my mood. Sometimes I just want something short and sweet. Sometimes I need something grander and deeper to keep me occupied for days.
Name The First Three Books You Think Of
Books That Make You Laugh or Cry?
I avoid books that make me cry like the plague! Definitely books that make me laugh.
Our World or Fictional Worlds?
Fictional worlds are so much more fascinating when built well. But I don’t mind our world, either. Just make it entertaining!
Audiobooks: Yes or No?
Audiobooks are, again, incredibly convenient! They keep me from getting killed/hurt very often while taking a stroll outside (running into a lamp post while reading, anyone?). Plus, they save a lot of time. But I do need to like the narrator’s voice and tone.
Do You Ever Judge a Book by it’s Cover?
Unfortunately, yes. I’m a sucker for beauty.
Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?
It’s quite hard to make a movie based on a book due to all the time constraints. It rarely delivers, as it doesn’t pack as much plot and character development as it should. So TV series are usually a better choice.
A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?
Series or Standalones?
It depends on the story. Just don’t drag on something that obviously isn’t going anywhere, nor cut short something that obviously needs developing!
I hope you enjoyed this tag! Feel free to comment and let me know what you thought of it. Until next time 🙂 ❤
