Thank you to Soph over at Book, Blog, and Candle for tagging me! I’ll do my best to answer all of these in short sentences.
E-Book or Physical Book?
Physical book definitely. E-books are useful for transporting but they tend to put me to sleep.
Paperback or Hardback?
Hardback. I hate having to worry about bending paperbacks the wrong way when I’m reading them. With hardbacks I feel like I could accidentally throw them halfway across the world and they’d be totally fine.
Online or In-Store Book Shopping?
This one is harder. In-store lets me see more options, but online is usually much cheaper. I’ll probably just say online.
Trilogies or Series?
Lol why isn’t this standalone or series? I’d say series because whenever an author is like “here’s the first book of my trilogy” I’m like HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING IN 3 BOOKS???
Heroes or Villains?
Villains. I have a soft spot for misunderstood/tragic villains.
A book you want everyone to read?
Red, White & Royal Blue. That book is amazing.
Recommend an underrated book?
I never know what’s considered underrated because I think most of the books I’ve read are from seeing other people read them. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson is a book that I’ve read several times and I feel like a lot of people don’t know about that series, but maybe I’m totally wrong.
The last book you finished?
Finished Stalking Jack the Ripper last night! Review to come soon!
The Last Book You Bought?
I bought a bunch of books recently off of amazon. I think they were Bringing Down the Duke, Scarlet, and One of Us is Lying.
Weirdest Thing You’ve Used as a Bookmark?
I don’t use too many weird things. Like my phone is one I use often if I’m standing up really quick to go somewhere and come back.
Used Books: Yes or No?
Yes, though they have to be nice quality.
Top Three Favorite Genres?
Borrow or Buy?
Borrow and buy if I like it. Borrowing is nice because if I didn’t like the book, I don’t have to feel like I wasted money.
Characters or Plot?
Characters. I think a book with an average plot can really be brought up by having outstanding characters.
Long or Short Books?
Short. Long books terrify me. I think the “longest” book I’ve ever read is Illuminae and that wasn’t classic storytelling.
Long or Short Chapters?
Short or medium. Long chapters tend to tire me out because I’m just thinking about how I still have so many pages until I can hit another benchmark.
Name The First Three Books You Think Of:
The first three books I could think of were because I mentioned them above so let me think some more…
The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo
I’m not gonna lie, my brain panicked and was just shouting random words at me that were not at all titles of books that I know.
Books That Makes You Laugh or Cry?
Laugh. If I’m crying a lot during a book I’ll be more hesitant to pick it up again.
Our World or Fictional Worlds?
Fictional worlds! Our world has so many bad things in it. It’s nice to get an escape.
Audiobooks: Yes or No?
Yes, though I have a hard time paying attention to them. I basically only ever listen to audiobooks of books that I’ve read previously.
Do You Ever Judge a Book by its Cover?
100% yes lol. If it looks like NA Romance then SIGN ME UP
Book to Movie or Book to TV Adaptations?
Book to TV would provide more true-to-book adaptations I think, so I’ll go with that.
A Movie or TV-Show You Preferred to its Book?
No idea. I’m going to say Mockinjay because I tried to read that book twice and kept getting bored at the halfway point. I still haven’t finished it.
Series or Standalones?
Oh here’s what I was looking for! Standalones because I have a bad habit of forgetting to finish series.
I’m going to tag:
I love tags! I know it seems like I don’t because it takes me months to finally do them but please tag me in things!
